A good friend of mine during my highly influential teen years was a big-time Depeche Mode fan. He was nearly a decade older than I was and had been around for their rise to awesomeness. Through him, I grew to love them as well. The boys will be releasing a new remix album titled, Remixes 2: 81-11, on June 6th and it will be available as a single-disc, triple-disc, and 6-LP set. It features remixes by M83, UNKLE, Dan the Automator, and Röyksopp amongst others. They’ve put together a very “Depeche Mode”-looking video for “Personal Jesus” remixed by Norwegian duo Stargate and it’s definitely up to snuff.
Copenhagen/Brooklyn’s Alcoholic Faith Mission have been the darlings of many a festival over the last few years. Here’s their vid for “Legacy” which is probably the sweetest video about death involving a mouse you have seen.
And if you’re not one of the nearly 1 million people who have seen this, Vegan Black Metal Chef is pretty hilarious.
