Video: Black Lips – “Funny”

Fresh off a US tour with a plethora of sold out shows from coast to coast, Black Lips are once again preparing to hit the road in support of Underneath The Rainbow this fall with The King Khan & BBQ Show. This pairing has a storied history, from KK & BBQ’s chaotic introduction as support on Black Lips’ first European tour to the amalgamated supergroup of both acts as psych-gospel sextet The Almighty Defenders in 2009, and the resulting shows are certain to be legendary.

Underneath the Rainbow further demonstrates Black Lips’ 15 year evolution from underground hellions to international ambassadors of rock-n-roll (via tours that have graced the likes of Iraq, Lebanon, Thailand, India, Mexico, and dozens more). While production credits from Patrick Carney of The Black Keys and Tommy Brenneck (Cee Lo, Dap Kings) help to spotlight the band’s songcrafting, at their heart Black Lips are a vibrant and invigorating live act who thrive on getting a room moving.

Video: Black Lips – “Boys in the Wood”

Black Lips have dropped the first video from their new one Underneath the Rainbow (out 3/18). The ATL Twins/Matt Swinsky co-directed clip for “Boys In The Wood” is a parade of NSFW visuals set in the backwoods: drinking, drugging, fighting, murder, face-pissing, fire dancing, sponge bathing in a coffin – all somehow beautifully rendered.

Video: The Money Go Round – “YAYAYA”

Check out this video from Sydney, Australia’s The Money Go Round.

The Money Go Round is a means of expression for five Sydney artists who have all had a passion for art and music throughout their lives. It is the product of years of experimentation, to develop a nucleus that promotes creative collaboration. Their debut single “YAYAYA” is about wanting something you can’t have. It sounds like falling down a waterfall into a bucket of rainbow paint. “YAYAYA” was produced by TMGR and Tracked/Mixed and Mastered through 301 Studios, Sydney.

The Money Go Round would very much like to embody the rock/psychedelic genre, TMGR are set to achieve a sound with longevity that is both modern and vintage, and drive their music with strong and memorable live performances.

For fans of: The Black Keys, Tame Impala, Kasabian, Black Lips, The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys.

AND, if ya fancy, you can go download “YAYAYA” for free, too.

FILTER Magazine is proud to announce that the second annual Culture Collide Festival will take place October 6 – 9, 2011 in Los Angeles.

The four-day international festival will once again welcome bands from all over the world for a multi-cultural musical melting pot throughout the vibrant scene of LA’s East Side, including an all-day Block Party on Sunday, October 9 in Echo Park. Festival wristbands providing access to all Culture Collide showcases will once again be priced at just $20.

“We couldn’t be more excited about what we have planned for this year,” said Alan Miller, co-owner and co-founder of FILTER Magazine. “2011 will feature more intimate venues within walking distance from each other as well as even more participating countries from all over the world.”

Last year’s inaugural Culture Collide Festival attracted 10,000 attendees and featured 54 bands from 16 countries. Performing artists included Black Lips, Klaxons, Tokyo Police Club, White Lies, Phantogram, Monotonix, Casiokids, The Boxer Rebellion, Jenny and Johnny, Fran Healy, Suuns, Sébastien Tellier, and more. Dangerbird Studios hosted several recording sessions for visiting artists, resulting in the first “Live from FILTER Magazine’s Culture Collide Festival” mix available as a free download at culturecollide.com.

Additional details including 2011 wristband sale information, participating countries and performing artists will be announced in the coming weeks. For the most updated information on FILTER Magazine’s Culture Collide, please visit culturecolide.com, and follow FILTER Magazine on Facebook and Twitter.

“Filter Magazine’s Culture Collide Festival brings some of the best and brightest indie rockers from around the world.” — LA Times

“Filter Magazine’s Culture Collide Festival is like the feisty little brother to bigger music fests like SXSW and Coachella, and by all appearances, a lot more interesting (not to mention less expensive). The extended, multi-venue tribute to independent music has a lineup that’s not just indie, but good.” — Flavorpill
