New Entry: Placebo Return With New Single "Beautiful James"

UK alt-rock band Placebo have returned with their new single "Beautiful James", their first in five years.

Beautiful James, is a celebration of non-heteronormative love, and was written in an unconventional manner. During a period of insomnia, singer/guitarist Brian Molko and bassist Stefan Olsdal first came up with the vibe through images and the song’s title, and then began work on the music after. 

“If the song serves to irritate the squares and the uptight, so gleefully be it,” says Brian. ​“But it remains imperative for me that each listener discovers their own personal story within it – I really don’t want to tell you how to feel.”

Watch: 10 000 Russos Unveil Music Video For "Station Europa"

Portuguese cosmic drone/psych trio 10 000 Russos have unveiled the video for their latest single "Station Europa".

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their fifth studio album 'Superinertia', released last Friday, September 10 via Fuzz Club Records. Get it here.

Whilst the sound might be transforming, one constant is in the band’s founding mission to make “submersive music with subversive lyrics”. Evidence of their not wanting to shy away from uncomfortable truths, ‘Station Europa’ certainly fulfills on both fronts – with guitarist Pedro Pestana describing it as “a twisted anthem for the end of Europe, in which the once-sacred French words Liberté, Égalité and Fraternité are contradicted by a heritage of bureaucracy that gets in the way of a fellow member’s call for help.”

Watch: Vitalic Shares New Single/Video "Rave Against the System"

French electronic DJ/Producer Vitalic has shared the video for his new single "Rave Against the System" feat. Kiddy Smile.

The song is taken from his forthcoming fifth studio album 'DISSIDÆNCE', which will be released in two parts, with the first part set to be release October 15 via Citizen Records.

'Rave Against The System' is a salute to the subversive eroticism of the rave. Blending physicality of sound with deftness of touch, 'Rave Against The System' is a manifesto of immediacy from a hugely experienced producer.

The video "embodies the crazy urge to celebrate all desires and all bodies," as he puts it. "An illegal party with dystopian accents welcomes a crowd gathering for a last dance. Old, young, trans, cis, POC, all shades of beauty… Here we celebrate the difference of those gorgeous human beings, united in an orgiastic moment."
