Watch: Pixies Share Music Video For "Silver Snail"

Pixies have shared the video for "Silver Snail", the latest cut taken from their fifth studio album 'Indie Cindy', which came out last month (April 28). 

Directed by Mount Emult, the video shows an underdressed young man dragging a burden across a snowy field by a length of thick rope, when he's set upon by masked marauders, captured and carried off. At the end, there's a suggestion that the whole sequence is about to repeat.

About the video Black Francis said: "We've always liked the idea of working with young, up-and-coming, independent filmmakers, as we think that their energy and vision would probably best complement what we've tried to do with our music. Consequently, we've really had very little creative input in this new ‘Silver Snail’ video or any of the others that have been made for the ‘Indie Cindy’ project. I think the only direction we've given any of those who have made a music video for us this time was just to be as creative and innovative as they want—no barriers. And looking back at the series of videos we have for this project, they've all done just that."

Led Zeppelin Unviel New Video For "Whole Lotta Love (Rough Mix With Vocal)"

British rock legends Led Zeppelin have unveiled a new video for the Rough Mix With Vocal of their classic track "Whole Lotta Love".

The remix is taken from from the companion audio of Led Zeppelin II (Deluxe Edition), which is part of the first three albums the band will re-issue on June 3rd. Pre-order the edition of your preference here.

About the alternate version of the song, Jimmy Page said: "This version of ‘Whole Lotta Love’ is the mix down from the night that we recorded it, so it doesn’t have any of the overdubs that everyone will be familiar with, because when they hear this they’ll think, ‘Oh yeah, that’s the original’ and all of a sudden they’ll go ‘No, it’s not.’"

Robert Plant added: "You can see how songs grow. There must have been five or six other takes of that, which are not present. So the shaping of these things is very interesting and you can hear with this particular version that we haven’t quite reached the point yet, and that it’s very, very close."

The video features a number of live recordings of the track. Check out below.

Arcade Fire multi-instrumentalist Richard Reed Parry has announced he will release his new solo album titled 'Music for Heart and Breath', on June 9th through Deutsche Grammophon. 

In a statement, Parry described the album as: "very soft, very quiet music, played utterly in sych with the heart rates and breathing rates of the musicians performing it".

So what you hear when this music plays is played precisely in time with someone’s quiet, internal rhythms. Brought to musical life by a handful of different ensembles. And now, at last, recorded in full, and coming out on Deutsche Grammophon in a few weeks from now. It has been a joy to create this work, and even more of a joy to have it brought to life by such a fantastic cast of musical minds." Parry explained.

02. Heart And Breath Sextet
03. For Heart, Breath And Orchestra
Interruptions (Heart and Breath Nonet)
