Nick Zinner From The Yeah Yeah Yeahs Remixes Chew Lips

Nick Zinner (of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s) has given Chew Lips’ new single Do You Chew? the remix treatment. Zinner changes the vibes of Chew Lips’ new single by adding synths, giving it a marching band drum rhythm and stripping back lead singer Tigs’ vocal. To accompany the remix, Chew Lips have also assembled an alternative video which contains unseen footage.

Watch the alternate video for the remix below.

Superchunk Announce Summer Themed New Single

Culture Addicts faves, Superchunk will release their new single This Summer on June 12. This Summer is the A-side of this limited-edition 7″, which is the first new Superchunk music since the 2010 release of their album “Majesty Shredding”. The B-side features the band’s cover of Bananarama’s 80s hit Cruel Summer. As a bonus, the single includes a digital download code for an acoustic version of This Summer.

It will be interesting to hear how Superchunk reworks the song, but in the meantime, below is the video for the original version of Cruel Summer.

Produced by Scott Solter with artwork featuring photography by Harrison Haynes (Les Savy Fav), the 7″ will be pressed on white vinyl limited to 1300 hand-numbered copies worldwide.

Of the songs chosen for the 7″, Mac said, “I like summer songs. They could be about the actual season, or just be songs listened to most while doing things you do during the summer—taking a road trip, going to the coast, sitting outside on the roof or the porch or the beach or wherever. And actually, maybe most of those songs were written during the winter or the spring by someone somewhere cold who was looking forward to summer (because for one thing, if you want a song to come out during the summer, please note that you have to make it long before then).

If you get the “demo” version of This Summer, it’s one of many demos for this song. The very first one was actually all electric and sounds a little too close to the studio version to be worth hearing. I had to do a bunch of quiet ones to get the structure right; this is one of those. The B-side features the band’s own take on Bananarama’s ’80s hit Cruel Summer. As a bonus, the single will include a digital download code for an acoustic version of This Summer.”

The Magnetic Fields Premiere New Video

Today, the Magnetic Fields premiered the new video for their track Quick! lifted from their latest album “Love at the Bottom of the Sea”. The video was directed by James Spinney, and revolves around a woman living in a trashcan as she discovers another of her kind and perhaps a little romance. The track is simple, and sing-a-long friendly with a quirky video to match.

Zulu Winter Release Video For Latest Single

Photo credit: Tom Oxley

Oxfordshire’s Zulu Winter has released a video for their single Silver Tongue which is lifted from their debut album “Language” out June 19 via Arts & Crafts available as a digit download, CD or LP.

“Language” opens with Key To My Heart, a sincere message of love that showcases the depth and richness of the band’s sound with layers of swirling instrumentation. The upbeat Silver Tongue is driven by an energetic bass line that leads to a danceable chorus. Bitter Moon is an emotionally charged track hinged on a powerful chorus, inviting listeners to experience a vulnerable side of the band. We Should Be Swimming is a melancholic pop-song running over a compelling rhythm.

Watch the video for Silver Tongue below.

Check out Zulu Winter live in NYC!
6/12: New York, NY @ Mercury Lounge
