alt-J And Pusha T Release 'In Cold Blood' Video

(BH) alt-J have released a music video for their track "In Cold Blood" which features rap star Pusha T, who also stars in the Osean directed clip. It comes from the group's REDUXER album.

"Pusha and alt-J have two completely different styles and coloring them together makes for an interesting sound" explains the director Osean. "Instead of representing the 2 more so as a person to person, I decided to represent them as more person to experience, or person to land.

"The way Pusha is acting in the video is the same way I feel he acted in the song. He flows through the song as his experience in someone else's world trying to find his place. And so in the video during the alt-J part, I wanted Pusha to basically experience alt-J the experience. " Watch it here.

Aisles Release Live from Estudio del Sur EP

(Glass Onyon) Chilean prog ensemble Aisles have released a new live EP called "Live from Estudio del Sur". The mini-album is available on CD and digital platforms.

The EP was recorded at Estudio del Sur, and includes newly done versions of the songs "Clouds Motion", "Shallow and Daft", "Still Alive" and "Club Hawaii".

Germán Vergara, guitarist, describes it as "a blend between some of earliest and some of our newest compositions, all in the same set, with the current Aisles sound. 'Clouds Motion' is one of the first songs we recorded as a band. We also made a new version of 'Shallow and Daft, where we invited the singer Catalina Blanco from the band Téfiret. The last two tracks, 'Still Alive' and 'Club Hawaii', capture the hopeless atmosphere of our concept album 'Hawaii' and reflect what the band is doing nowadays. People will like the sound on the EP as the songs feel more organic and heavier that on the albums."

Also, these songs were a series of live sessions filmed by director Bernardo Quesney, who has also worked with Chilean artists Gepe, Javiera Mena and Colombina Parra, among others. Watch the performance of "Clouds Motion" here.

Infrared Release 'Father of Lies' Video

Infrared have released a new music video for their track "Father of Lies". The song comes from the group's brand new eight track studio album "Saviours".

Singer Armin Kamal had this to say, "Father of Lies – Is the most layered song on Infrared's Saviours album. It's first three verses are pulled directly from the Bible which describes the Father of Lies (Satan), but the song moves to show the abuses of power from the clergy against its own practitioners, mainly children, in such an evil manner that it is clear they are no better than the father of lies they preach against.

"So here we have a group of people portraying themselves as saviors all while living complete lies and spewing lies in an effort to conceal and satisfy their sick desires." Check out the video here.
