The Beautiful Word – May Not Be Love

BW

 

We posted up the hand made stop motion video for May Not Be Love by The Beautiful Word when it surfaced a few weeks back. The breezy summery pop track gets a proper release as a single today, available through the group’s bandcamp page, so we thought it was time to give you the full details. May Not Be Love is the first track from their first full studio sessions, funded by an appearance at T in the Park last year. The band are now looking for a label to put out the whole album recorded at the time.

New videos!

It’s been a while since we’ve done a round up of some of the latest videos we’ve spotted, so here’s a few to watch on this chilly Sunday night.

First up is Nimmo and the Gauntletts new single Change. The video was directed by Agyness Deyn, more well known for being in front of the camera than behind it. Agyness played the track on 6Music, and the band tweeted her asking her to appear their next video. She went one better and directed the video for them!

Then we have The Beautiful Word, who’ve just headed out on tour. They’re playing Brighton on Thursday night at The Hope. This is the animated video for their track May Not Be Love, which will be on their album Particles which is coming out later this year.

Here’s the video for Debbie Does Drugs by The Bobby McGees. This is one of the tracks from their upcoming album Je Vien Rechcher Mes, and is an opportunity to see Jimmy McGee without his trademark beard!

Next up Monsters Build Mean Robots with the video for their new track A Town Called Tourettes:

Professor Elemental‘s new single is called This is My Horse (show me yours). You can buy it over on his bandcamp page, and watch the video here:

British Sea Power‘s new album Machineries of Joy is out a week tomorrow (1st April). Before that they’re playing a sold out show at the Old Market, and have released a video for the title track:

Finally, here’s a video from the Nordic Giants gig at the Pavilion Theatre last month. This is Glass Skinned Girl, which is the b-side to the band’s new single Speed The Crow’s nest. Nordic Giants are playing up in London next month, and there’s still one or two tickets for the early show (which you can buy here).

Three Videos

I’ve got a busy week ahead, without too much time for blogging, so here’s three videos and bits of news which probably deserve to have blog posts of their own. If only there were more hours in the day.

The Beautiful Word have posted a new video for May Not Be Love, and in doing so have snuck in a mention that they’ve got an album on the way. Their new long player Particles should be with us later this year.

The Galleons put up the video for Islands of Japan this weekend. They’re also planning a new album, but are looking to raise funds via Pledge Music to help it along it’s way. If you liked the first one, if you want to support local music, head on over and see if any of their offers (from just buying the album all the way up to the band performing a private gig for you) take your fancy.

Moya‘s new single A Little More Love is out on 25th March. Her last single spent four weeks on the Radio 2 playlist, so fingers crossed this does as well. Moya’s off on tour soon supporting Razorlight’s Andy Burrows, and is kicking things off in her hometown – they play at The Komedia on 18th February.
