According to her blog post on Dazed Digital (a new website from the peeps at Dazed and Confused magazine), Karen O has taken to championing the all-female Austin, TX quartet, Finally Punk since she is “fond of kids without balls but spines–girls”.
Check out their cover of Nirvana’s “Negative Creep” on their MySpaz.
Watch their video for “Missile”:
Other cool stuff on the Dazed Digital site includes this vid that gives some behind-the-scenes scoop on some hip videos like “Daft Punk Is Playing at My House” by LCD Soundsystem and Klaxons “Atlantis to Interzone” shot by video teamSTUSH.
I absolutely LOVE this description of the shoot for Simian Mobile Disco’s video for “Hustler”:
Simian Mobile Disco “Hustler”
Basically my sister seems to know every horny scenester in London and she managed to collect these girls together quite easily. They’re called Girl Core, but my sister calls them the international party crew. They’re basically a bunch of Spanish, French and Colombian girls who tour European festivals, take insane amounts of drugs, get off with each other and sprinkle glitter over scared indie kids. We had literally 2 hours to shoot this. The girls got drunk, coked and loved up off their faces. They said it was the best time they’ve ever had. I don’t know where the drugs came from. I’m really small and I can’t take drugs so I have to live vicariously through other people. My life is like sitting on iChat taking turns at trying to out do my friends with YouTube clips.
