Watch: Band of Horses Reveal Music Video For "Crutch"

Seattle indie rock/alt band Band of Horses have revealed the video for their latest single "Crutch".

The song is taken from their forthcoming sixth studio album 'Things Are Great', which will be available on January 21, 2022 through BMG. Pre-order your copy here.

“I think like a lot of my songs, ‘Crutch’ starts with something from my real life,” says the band's Ben Bridwell. “Obviously ‘Crutch’ means some of the things that I was dependent on. My relationship for one. I think I wanted to say, ‘I’ve got a crush on you,’ and I thought it was funny how relationships also feel like crutches. I feel like everybody has had a time when nothing goes right and you still have to carry on. I think that feeling hits you in this song even if you don’t know what the specifics are.”

Agender Announce New LP 'No Nostalgia', Stream Title Track

LA-based post-punk band Agender have announced the release of their sophomore album 'No Nostalgia'.

Due out February 24, 2022, the album was produced by David Scott Stone (LCD Soundsystem, Unwound), mixed by Sean Cook (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen), and arrives seven years after releasing their first record, Fixations. 

The band have also shared the album's title track "No Nostalgia", which dives into the realm of the imaginary, where all life has ceased to exist. It describes a post-human environment where a being can oscillate effortlessly in oblivion without the weight and pressure of modern existence. Memory is asked to be recalled and an urge to return to childlike innocence is brought forth. To enhance this sentiment, lead singer Romy Hoffman creates a lullaby with “No Nostalgia,” which is often used as methods to teach children. The somber tone, reflective lyrics, moody synths, eerie guitar and breathy vocals combine to make a single that shines with a retro late 70s/early 80s flare, and sonically, as Hoffman puts it, a sound that is “Malaria! Meets P.I.L and Wire.” The synth led lullaby leaves the listener yearning to be one with their former self, even if it’s just for a moment. 

Describing the song, Hoffman says, "The song imagines a world devoid of memory, where nothing exists anymore- the dust of semiotics and signs are what remains. There are no memoirs because there are no people. It’s a yearning for amnesia. Human beings are usually either looking back at the past or are worrying about the future. The oscillation between these tenses is what creates anxiety. No Nostalgia is a peaceful place of no anxiety, of evaporated earth and emptiness, of erased arousal, of no desire. There is no more danger because nothing exists. The song doesn’t say what caused this, but it’s post-human Earth about to rejuvenate itself from the vestiges and damages of Human existence."

Hoffman, describing the main themes of the album, says, “The album reads as a newspaper or a collage. It’s a political, spiritual, philosophical look at modern society- the information age. It’s an anthropological look at the absurd current state of affairs. It’s focused yet unhinged, self reflective, observant, brash, tongue in cheek, serious yet playful. Excavations and observations of the mind of an anxiously attached, overthinking, spiritual human."

Agender make schizo, synthy, paranoid, post-punk with a dash of dysmorphic.

From the band: America has historically and continues to fetishize violence, force and warfare on behalf of " the greater good", and this video for Organized Murder is an exploration of that concept. This is a representation of my experiences watching systematic violence used on behalf of morally bankrupt politically ideologies to meet their ends and economic hegemony by military domination across the third world.
