There’s a lot I don’t really comprehend about this, but Die Antwoord are people from EuropeSouth Africa who make silly sounding music and are apparently turning into some sort of internet thing. As soon as they land on Chubarama though, internet things tend to be well beyond their peak, but if the fat guy goes solo he might have some staying power. Maybe he could make a couple shirtless videos, that would help. Video (not shirtless) after the jump.
After going through some old posts we realized we haven’t mentioned one of our favorite bands, Lukestar, in nearly a year. And that’s just not right! They really do have one of the most adorable frontmen ever and they really do make quality music, unlike a lot of bands we feature here who are admittedly horrible but still nice to look at.
After the jump we’ve compiled some live footage of the band for your enjoyment.
So, so good. We’ve featured Pattern is Movement before (wow, it’s been a year!) but we love these guys, both sonically and visually, so what a treat is was to find this sitting in our inbox. Posted above is the band’s excellent cover of the already excellent “How Does It Feel” by D’angelo. They really kill it! Thanks to the submitter, this is one of the best musical posts we’ve had in a while.
Uh, yeah. So usually when I think of hippies I think of folk or jam bands or something, but here is metal band Texas Hippie Coalition, fronted by a big fat hairy bear dude with long hair and shades and whatever else is going on here. Check out their Myspace if you dare. Thanks, submitter. I think.
Banner Pilot is a punk band from Minneapolis. They’re lead singer is a young chunkster with an affinity for wearing shorts and getting sweaty. This is a wonderful combination. For more check out their Myspace, and these excellent pics on Flickr from user TwinkiePunk. We’ve embedded a video after the jump if you want to see the band in action. Hot off the presses, just uploaded yesterday.
Plea For Purging is a handsome group of young men, and as you can see they have a few chunky monkies in the group but bald, bearded Andy there in front may be the pic of the litter. We have a few pics and one cute video after the jump but for anyone who would like more make sure you check out their Myspace. Thanks, submitter!
