I’ve been taking videos of live shows for a while now but haven’t found the right zone to post them. So here’s me saying “fuck it” and shoving a few of them at you in this post. Below are videos from Cold Cave, Prurient, Chelsea Wolfe and Cult of Youth, all filmed by me in Los Angeles over the past week.

Chelsea WolfeMoses – Live at the Echo in Los Angeles, July 23, 2011. From her amazing LP on Pendu SoundThe Grime and the Glow

Cult of YouthCold Black Earth & The Devil’s Coals – Live at the Echo in Los Angeles, July 24, 2011. Respectively from their DAIS LP “A Stick to Bind, a Seed to Grow” and their new 7″ on Blind Prophet Recordings “The Devil’s Coals“.

Prurient – Live at the Ukranian Cultural Center in Los Angeles, July 27, 2011. Songs are: A Meal Can Be Made, Watch Silently, Cocaine Death, There Are Still Secrets. Cocaine Death is from the CD/CS release of the same name, and everything else is from the new LP/CD/CS on Hydra Head.

Cold CaveBurning Sage – Live at the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Los Angeles, July 27, 2011. This song is off their most recent LP “Cherish the Light Years” on Matador.



First, I urge everyone reading here to head over to FUCT.COM and check out the new self-shot/scored commercial that Erik Brunetti has made for his clothing line. It’s been up for about 24 hours and I’ve watched it more than a couple times. Oddly perfect advertising for streetwear clothing, encapsulating a great atmosphere and providing some mystery. It’s unsettling and well worth the two minutes of your time. There’s more to read about at SLAMXHYPE.

And here’s a selection of photos captured in the past few months. The awkward live shot is from the first (and only?) performance of EXPLORING JEZEBEL, who has a good handful of out of print tapes on Hospital Productions.
