Here’s a great new video from our super favorites Potpourri of Pearls. The video features big Rocky Horror lips and the song is, predictably, spectacular. Also, the video was directed by the group’s singer, Mr. Adam Chad Brody, who studied film at UCLA. The track is going to be on their forthcoming album, We Went To Heaven, which will be out February 11th of next year. Their last effort, Why Does Coco Cry? was absolutely wonderful so we’re definitely getting excited.
Live footage from one of the best performers in the country. This excellent Jef Barbara video was shot in Paris on his recent European Tour. Keep dancing, my friend!
Doom Squad – Ovoo
Ah, this track takes us back. “Ovoo” was the first we ever heard of Doomsquad, back when those otherwordly siblings had a space in their name. They were little-known back then, and now they’re signed to Hand Drawn Dracula and No Pain in Pop, premiering videos on the Line of Best Fit and riding around in luxury rocketcars, forgetting their boreal roots.
Or not, as is clear in this beautifully meditative and entrancing video, which has a shot-on-film feel, directed by Toronto’s Chris Boni. This band sure knows how to pick directors, we’re still in awe of their last one too. If you’re a Europerson, try to catch them while they’re on tour. They’re even more ridiculously good live.

With Toronto in the grips of Crack Mayor Mania we here at Silent Shout have remained largely above the fray. Well we’re wading in today with a contribution to the growing genre of Rob Ford press conference remixes from Lorenz Peter of the Toronto project Processor and the proprietor of one of the city’s finest record shops, LP’s LPs. Dance Ford Nation, Dance.
Beta Frontiers does some mighty fine remixes. So it’s amazing that he’s taken on fellow Daps-ers Phèdre‘s incredible song “Ancent Nouveau.” That crazy-catchy melody totally needed a trippy synthpop remix. To top it all off there’s a killer psychedelic video for the remix, courtesy of director Andrew Olivares, whose work we also dearly love. Guys, too much talent, ease up!
Phèdre’s awesome new album Golden Age is available from Daps Records here.
Modern Superstition‘s Nyssa Rosaleen has struck out on her own, and with the help of production from David Psutka/Egyptrixx, the result is deliciously dark. This Michael Marotti-directed debut video features a black-and-white Nyssa drinking wine and consorting with a masked, hairy creature.
Jef Barbara is back to his fuzzy/dreamy shot-on-video ways for his latest. This is the third single from the stellar Soft to the Touch, which came out at the beginning of October and has been on repeat in our earbuds since then.
