The Fucking Adventures, a loop-based psych rock outfit, release their very first music video. And it’s a thoroughly seapunk affair. It’s about time a high desert band got in on the Ecco the Dolphin fetish. Peep it below.

Beyond a shadow of a doubt
Since its controversial release and subsequent rapid removal, No Doubt’s racist comeback video, “Looking Hot,” has engendered both indictments and shrugs. Marisa Demarco explains why perpetuating racist stereotypes and sexually violent themes in a pop music video matters in Plenty of Doubt.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #230: The new Allan Holdsworth album.
I watch the video for the single from the new Allan Holdsworth album, 'Ghetto'. A beautiful black diva bathed in violet light softly sings the loving ballad: 'itybiddy man'.
Black Lips Tuesday
Here’s the second video from Arabia Mountain, the new, Mark Ronson-produced album by the Black Lips, set for release on Vice in early June. Though the band is based in Atlanta, parts of the video—the ones that appear to take place in a dive bar—were filmed at the Saturn Bar, a super fun dive bar in New Orleans. My sister Elizabeth, who lives in New Orleans and knows the Black Lips, is in the video. She’s one of the girls in the periphery during the dive bar scenes (look for the girl with the curly hair ... the girl next to her in the white boots is DJ Kristen). A few weeks ago she told me she showed up for the shoot thinking there’d be a whole crowd, but it was just a few folks and some chickens.
Nick Cave Thursday
I’ve enjoyed the work of Nick Cave since freshman year of college when I watched Wings of Desire with my older, cooler, chain smoking roommate from New Jersey. The video for “Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow” is, in my opinion, the best piece of Nick Cave footage since Wim Wenders captured him. In addition to a ‘70s-looking ocher tone and spiffy fashions, this music video has dance: interpretive dance, line dance and even a dancing cameo from the weirdly elegant Jarvis Cocker. Plus the song is a murder ballad. This is the complete A/V package!
