Thom Yorke – “Hands Off The Antarctic”

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke dropped a new track, “Hands Off The Antarctic,” in collaboration with Greenpeace in October in suport of the organization’s appeals to the Antarctic Ocean Commission to create an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary. The song is a hypnotic, pulsing instrumental with muffled electronic drums. The song was released with the above video footage recorded by the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise.

Yorke’s statement: “There are some places on this planet that are meant to stay raw and wild and not destroyed by humanity’s footprint.” On October 26th, Yorke released his soundtrack album to Suspiria and will embark on a North American tour beginning later this month.

Vince Staples – “Fun”

Prolific producer Kenny Beats recently worked with hiphop artist Vince Staples on his latest album, bringing back some of the West Coast/HYPHY sound that made Staples his name in the world of hiphop. The album features the track “Fun” with the fresh accompanying music video above.

1975 – “Love It If We Made It”

The 1975 have already released – count it – five singles from their upcoming album, and this, “Love It If We Made It” is the third video from the album. For an album that hasn’t been released, that’s revealing; just goes to show how ‘sacred’ albums are nowadays.

Cheval Sombre and Dean Wareham – “Grand Canyon”

Not only is this a great song from two artists – Cheval Sombre and Dean Wareham – that don’t get enough notice, but we love the time-sequencing, colors and the graphical transformation from the dazzling sunset in the desert to the dark inky canvas of night dabbled with shimmering stars and finishd with the cold thin brush of a crescent moon.

To add to the credits, Stephin Merritt (The Magnetic Fields, Future Bible Heroes), wrote the song. For all that have had the fortune of visiting the Grand Canyon, this track and song will likely have a special meaning.

Weezer – “Can’t Knock The Hustle”

This video, featuring Rivers Wentz, of Weezer’s new single, “Can’t Knock the Hustle,” the first from their impending Black Album (no release date yet), is kind of funny, if not a bit overstated. Still, anyone who has been an Uber or taxi driver for long enough has probably had a few such fares.

The single is produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek. Weezer is gearing up for a spring 2019 tour with the Pixies. That’ll be a show to see. Although one does wonder if Weezer was the best pick for the Pixies’ opener.
