* Locally residing punk rock outfit Cheap Time recently filmed an installment of BreakThru Radio TV's (I know, confusing) Serious Business. They played a handful of tunes and shot the breeze with a dude named Travis, and frontman Jeffrey Novak talked a little bit about opening for Social Distortion. He also talked about Graceland Too. By the way, I'm a lifetime member at Graceland Too. It's actually far creepier than Novak implies. Anyway, watch above.
* So, as recently mentioned, sometime Nashvillians Deer Tick will release their Negativity in September. During the Newport Folk Festival, the Tick's John McCauley and Ian O'Neil sat down to play a rendition of their "The Dream's in the Ditch" for Esquire. Watch that after the jump, and while you're at it, listen to McCauley's solo set at Newport via NPR. "Please be advised: Some of this audio contains profanity." Oh shit!
* Local bad girls Thelma and the Sleaze have a brand-new video for their tune "Summer Fun," and it features an awful lot of footage of them running around and behaving badly and so forth. You can see that after the jump, and stream or purchase the track itself via the Sleaze's Bandcamp page.
* And finally, Birth Control is a local gloomy pop outfit, and I once said they remind me of Depeche Mode, Psychedelic Furs, New Order and Bauhaus. Well, they have an extraordinarily, comically far-out and evil video for their tune "Holy Father," and you
can should watch that after the jump as well.
