Watch This Exclusive Clip from the new DFA 1979 Documentary "Life After Death From Above"

In 2006, Jesse Keeler and Sebastien Grainger called it quits on a band they "started out of boredom and necessity". That band was Death From Above 1979. In 2011, after five years of silence between them, they reunited for Coachella - and as we now know, this went pretty well. The new documentary Life After Death From Above 1979 directed by Eva Michon tells the story their rise, break-up, and coming back from the dead, and we're proud to bring you this exclusive clip from the film, which is available now. Watch it here:

New Music Video: Beaty Heart "Banana Bread" (2014)

BeatyHeart

If you wanted Surf-Inspired surf pop, then you’ve got it. The opening track from the band’s debut album Mixed Blessings now has it’s own video clip. It’s pretty subdued but if you’ve got an artsy mind, then you’ll love the colours. I mean seriously, look at that guitar!

New Music Video: Childish Gambino "Telegraph Ave ("Oakland" by Lloyd)" (2014)

Still reaping the massive success of his 2013 album Because the Internet, Childish Gambino is still steady rolling out the visuals to some of the LPs best cuts. The latest is a sun-drenched Hawaiian holiday that strangely turns into the beginnings of a b-grade horror movie. The visuals for "Telegraph Ave ("Oakland" by Lloyd)" feature rapidly rising R&B star Jhene Aiko, with her and Childish living the tropical island lifestyle...until he turns reveals his true self. *SPOILER ALERT* It's like that movie Slither, but better.

New Music Video: Yellowcard "One Bedroom" (2014)

Yellowcard New Album

It’s not that unusual for musicians and activists to band together. I mean hell, even U2 did it. Probably a little too much, but hey we’re not judging. But this new clip from the band’s upcoming album Lift a Sail really shows what artists can – and often do. It’s pretty touching – take a look below.
