New Princess Chelsea 'Frack' Music Video!

Princess Chelsea has a new video out for her song 'Frack'.

Director: Simon Ward
VFX: Simon Ward, Kenny Smith, Richard Pilkington and Luke Rowell
Costume: Christina Hroch, Caroline Anderson and Rose Salmon
Hair and Make up: Fiona Sole
Props: Sandy Burton-Davis

Chelsea has hinted at the song having personal biblical themes, channeled through a Battlestar Galactica obsession.

So of course no better director to make the music video than Simon Ward (& Co) - self proclaimed Sci Fi and pop culture nut who has made some incredible videos already for the likes of Golden Axe, Disasteradio, & Fistful of Gems, not to mention Lawrence Arabia's latest clip.

Classic sci-fi like the Alien trilogy (minus Alien III), Planet of The Apes, Battlestar Galactica & Star Wars always seem to bring up important questions about Humanity, God & Science - and often have a strong biblical undercurrent.

The Ruby Suns - Kingfisher Call Me

We're super excited to tell you that on the 28th of January 2013 we will be releasing the Ruby Suns 4th album, Christopher. Ryan McPhun has always been something of a musical wayfarer, collecting sounds and styles from his travels around the globe, so that each album is a sort of musical passport, and Christopher is no exception. This time round Ryan's found inspiration in Scandinavia, where he has been living for much of the last two years. Here's the cover:

To give you a taste of what's to come here's the official video for the first single, "Kingfisher Call Me":

The video was filmed in Sweden and directed by photographer and filmmaker duo Frode & Marcus (Lykke Li, El Perro del Mar). It was shot over two days in sub zero celsius temperatures and involved burying a volkswagon and digging it up again. While finishing up with some shots of a lake a moose family happened by purely by chance to make it extra awesome.

Grab a copy of the single here.

The Eversons - The Christmas Suicide Song

It's the time of year for drunken office party interaction, awkward family encounters and if you're lonely a greater focus on your bland existence. It's a sad fact that more suicides occur now than at any other time of year...still a novel subject matter for a 2 minute pop hit if you ask me.

The Eversons have been tinkering away in the studio the past week coming up with this gem in time for the festive season. Unfortunately not in time for a live performance at Christmas In The Park but hey, maybe next year.

The track is available for free here!
