Videos of the Week

Posted on June 4, 2012


Detour is back and with a shiney new magazine show that is set to be a monthly fixture. Ally and Weaver have live footage from the recent United Fruit gig and catch up with a load of Scottish musicians for performances and chat.

Detour are also hosting a showcase at Go North this week, with Olympic Swimmers, Lady North, Cleavers and Darc playing for them on Thursday in Madhatters. More details here.

Kochka‘s new video for Carousel-o-Tape is stylish, theatrical and just a little bit crazy – a pretty good representation of the band really. If you’ve caught them live you’ll know they put on quite a show and it’s good to have this caught on camera.

The video was shot by Ciaran Lyons

Sucioperro release new album Fused later in the summer and have shot a trilogy of videos to accompany it. The first is this frantic and gripping promo for A River of Blood, and while you wait for the new long player you can pick up reissues of previous releases for super cheap on Bandcamp.

It’s no surprise that the excellent Shootback Productions were behind this video.

Stanley Odd‘s second album, Reject, is not out until 17th September, but you can have part of it for FREE now – head to Bandcamp to snatch a copy of Get Out MA Headspace, for which you can see the video below.

You will also be able to get a first glimpse of this new material in a live environment this month at Electric Circus (Edinburgh) on June 22nd for just £1.79 and in Bloc (Glasgow) on 27th June for FREE. All tickets will be on the door.
