Mondkopf ‘They Fall But You Don’t’

Since the last album under his own name, 2014's Hadès, Paul Régimbeau has divided his time between his In Paradisum label, his grindcore-influenced Extreme Precautions projects and other bands including Foudre! and the noise supergroup Violent Magic Orchestra and live work with performance artist Charlemagne Palestine, and bringing his industrial duo Autrenoir to London to support Nurse With Wound.

The Blaze ‘Territory’

The Blaze ‘Territory’

Mysterious duo The Blaze made quite a name for themselves with the 'Virile' track released last year, and particularly the video accompanying it, which was more like a short film and took a fresh, modern look at questions of masculinity.

'Territory', which features the same distinctive approach to vocal production, is taken from their forthcoming EP (rele...

The video for 'Tina' itself includes footage from Asia Argento’s directorial feature Misunderstood, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg. An earlier version of the song ac...

Jain ‘Makeba’

Following on from Jain's brilliant debut album Zanaka, the brand new video for 'Makeba'  is a stunning blend of reality and absurdity. The song is a homage to South African legend Miriam Makeba, who was famous for her opposition to apartheid in the country.
