Queer Indie Band Early Eyes Share Whimsical New Music Video, “Dying Plant”
Minneapolis based indie band Early Eyes have shared a new music video for track “Dying Plant” from their debut album ‘Look Alive!’ via Epitaph Records. Driven by a percussion based groove, the upbeat jam unfolds with a dexterous guitar riff and cathartic chanting during the hook. The DIY music video is as quirky and endearing as the individual band members, featuring a Muppet-style hand puppet and a very convincing old man costume.
Robyn Hitchcock shares classic new song/video; new album Oct 21
“Songs come to me alive and flickering, fresh from the lake of my subconscious. I’m a compulsive writer,” says Hitchcock. “‘The Raging Muse’ was written in Nashville in 2020. It began life as a sketchy home recording, just me and my old Telecaster – the same guitar I played on ELEMENT OF LIGHT back in 1986 – this time around faithfully engineered by Tubby and Ringo. Once I had the bones of the song, I sent it to my friend Davey Lane in Melbourne, who fleshed it out with spiky lead guitar, and then onto Charlie Francis in Cardiff, who added the melodramatic piano and bagpipes. The fish in the grass in this song are one of my many recurring dreams, I’m sure they’ll appear again soon.”

Planningtorock Shares New Collaborative Single With Tyler Holmes
Speaking on the collaboration, Planningtorock says: “Making this remix/collaboration with Tyler has been so lovely and special. I was already a fan of Tyler and loved their album Nightmares in Paradise, so making this track was pure queer pleasure.”
Fiddle and pedal steel complement Langdon’s emotive vocals and authentic country production to create a great mood-setting tune perfect for slow dancing under the midnight sky.

Throw in contributions from the legendary Tegan and Sara and you have a recipe for a robust, unabashed song complete with sparse piano and swirling synths.”
