[Music Video] Alien Knife Fight – Flightplan

Kickback, strap in and get ready to lift off. “Flightplan” from Alien Knife Fight is here. The do it yourselfers Monique and Michael not only wrote and performed their jammy single, but they did a ton of work alongside a very select few others on the music video for the project.

Great rock has always been a raw, unfiltered experience and Alien Knife Fight are a pillar in that regard. As heard and seen with “Flightplan” they are doing things their own way and it really shows. With this single we get a tasteful, vibey tune that calls for lighters (not cell phones) in the air. It’s certainly doesn’t take a leap to imagine that in a live scenario. In mentioning a live show, if you’re in California, they’re playing a string of shows starting today in both the Northern and Southern parts of the great state. Check out their Facebook page for details after you follow through with “Flightplan.”

[Music Video] Shiny Wet Machine – Euphoria

It’s always nice to deliver some good news. Today, we have great news for you coming from the Shiny Wet Machine camp. Not only do we have the release date for their Lights Out EP, but we have a music video for the “Euphoria” single. While you watch the raw video you can smile knowing the duo’s EP will be out on April 25th through their label Diet Punk.

“Euphoria” is an extremely fun record and the video to go along with it is equally so. Nothing about this single or the Shiny Wet Machine project at large is watered down or filtered in any way. Punk rock lives and breathes through this group and we can’t wait to see and hear what else is in store. Their sound, their attitude, their artwork and brand as a whole is as good as it gets and the rock world needs their edge. Enjoy “Euphoria” today and get ready for the full EP release coming in just a few short weeks.

Jake Houlsby – Oklahoma [TMN PREMIERE]

Jake Houlsby
Oklahoma

It’s the middle of the week, which means its time to stop, take a moment to reflect, and drink in everything that’s coming your way in the next few days. To begin the process, we highly recommend delving into this lovely tune from Newcastle-based Jake Houlsby. It’s the perfect blend of shoegaze, pysch-rock, and folk to get you in the right frame of mind for some self-reflection.

This is just the second track coming off his upcoming Vondelpark EP, due out May 5th via Tipping Point Records, and it should have you clamoring for a full experience with the entire collection. Pronounced percussion work definitely provides a hearty backbone, allowing glowing keys and guitars to settle in nicely behind. Each of these elements comes together beautifully, providing the perfect soundscape for Jake’s unique vocal tone and delivery.

You might be asking yourself how a young fellow from the UK landed on a song title for what most Yanks would consider a “fly-over” state. Here’s what he had to say about it:

“There’s something about the American South that has always enchanted me. I’d just read Woody Guthrie’s autobiography a few years ago when I remember seeing Oklahoma and getting this weird feeling of discount and nostalgia. I wrote this song shortly after.

We’ll go ahead and assume that you’re feeling this release, which means you’ll want to catch it live. You can do so by hitting up one of the following shows below.

Apr 29 – Live At Leeds

May 5 – The Mining Institute, Newcastle

May 6 – The Eagle Inn, Manchester (supporting Joan Shelley)

May 20 – The Great Escape Festival, Brighton
