Schlag auf Schlag - Filou
I was going to post this and say either something snarky about overly literally acted out music videos because I personally don’t like them, or something nice about childhood Naschmark memories. However, I’ve had the song stuck in my head for a whole day now and all thoughts have left my brain, so I got nothing anymore.
Bad Seed - A Life, A Song, A Cigarette
Spoiler alert: There are people in this video and there’s a (drawing of a) wolf in this video but at no point do they become one, like I originally assumed.
Behave (from now on) - Fijuka
Choreographies continue to be a huge thing in 2013. This one combines choreographies with free dance, miming circus attractions and wheels in which cheerleaders do things that look extremely difficult and dangerous.
Naked Lunch - At The Lovecourt
There are remarkably many shots of bums and remarkably few couples making out for a concert. There are close-ups of concert photographers and people who play in other bands that are amazing.
And for the first time, I am sort of relieved I couldn’t go; I have the suspicion that my concert face is the worst and I certainly don’t want anyone to capture it.
SOHN - Bloodflows
OK, this is really the last video with forest content I will ever post. I’ve had enough. Come up with new locations, people.
Ghost Capsules - Game Of Thrones
All my knowledge of Game Of Thrones comes from the occasional SNL skit and I will not start watching it no matter how often everyone’s raving about it since I do not have the time what with all the Broke, New and just Girls shows on my agenda, but I have taken the time to listen to the Ghost Capsules song with the same title and have not regretted it.
Attention, attention, cross-promotion!
We’re DJ-ing tonight at the wonderful Club mit, that is called Club mit Städtenamen (und VIE!), this time in the Wiener Freiheit. We are the (und VIE!) part of the event, naturally. If you come early, there’s a screenshot film quiz at 7:30 p.m. and if you come late, Kristall Mathias is playing at 11:15 and if you come very late, there’s a “Reise nach Jerusalem XXXtreme” at midnight. If you come early and stay late, you are the best!
deadnote.danse - Synced, from Cornucopia, out on 10 May 2013 on Live From Mars Records
Ok, so we’re not the biggest fans of unnecessary punctuation marks (just like leaving out vowels, that is so 2000) and by now everyone should be sick of forests, even bleak ones, in music videos.
And yes, the beautiful, beautiful Wotruba church has been featured before in the A Thousand Fuegos artwork. But don’t let that keep you from watching this video. There can never be enough of the Wotruba church. And if you like Beach House, The XX or maybe even the first Sneaker Pimps album, here’s something for your ears as well.

Francis International Airport – The Right Ones (MP3)
It is no overstatement to say that Francis International Airport are Austria’s most relevant band with an international appeal. With their 2010 album In The Woods, they took the local indie community by storm and made quite an impression at festivals such as Eurosonic and Primavera. Three years later, additional e-drums and synths contribute to the more electronic sound of its equally great successor Cache.

Erwin & Edwin - Kobra
With their self-chosen genre label “electronic brass music” and four songs named after snakes, Erwin & Edwin (hailing from Upper Austria, of course) are set to conquer the world of Parov Stelar fans with their new Kobra EP.
Robin Pahlman - Miss Lonelyhearts
I will look past the banjo and the silly song title this once and go ahead and post this nevertheless, but only because I have the chorus’s first line Hey, this is serious stuck in my head and want to sing it all the time.
This tune (Just Friends and Lovers cover) - Robotra
Robotra add a lot of aggression to this JFAL earworm but not unpleasantly so.
