¡FLIST!

#19: ¡FLIST! – Mercury’s Net

¡FLIST! returns with his first (incredibly creepy) video from 2014’s phenomenal Fuck You I’m Dead. Self-directed, the video features Charlie Twitch as some sort of wood creature, hiding from society while singing to himself and just…watching. The pale, black and white video certainly pairs well with the natural unease found in most of the his music, and shares its dystopian view of society at large through the status of the outsider.

Fuck You I’m Dead is still amazing and still available from Art Not Love.

Premiere: The Marquis – lil bb

marquis

Word to the wise: The Marquis, the brainchild of Montreal’s Dillon Steele, is probably the best new post-punk act we’ve heard all year. We’re incredibly pleased to premiere the first single off his debut EP, which features drums and production by Silent Shout fave Charlie Twitch, and cello by Christophe Cinq. The song’s called “lil bb” but it’s not the hyper-referential internet pop jam one might expect with a title like that. Instead, it’s a classic-sounding post-punk track that oozes paranoia and dark pronouncements. And sure enough, the thundering drums and crisp production really remind of Charlie Twitch’s work as ¡FLIST!, which is the best because we want more things that sound like that.

The Marquis EP is out in October on Art Not Love Records and we have a powerful hunger to hear it. In the meantime we’ll satisfy our ear-cravings with repeated plays of “lil bb”.

If you haven’t got it already, Fuck You I’m Dead (our eighth favourite record last year) is still available via Art Not Love.
