Do I always feel strong? The answer is no – this is why when I hear bands like OIKOS I get a chance to rebuild my spirit against their walls of sound. Just like life itself, their music is full of jagged edges wrapped around the fluidity of water. Today it’s CVLT Nation’s honor to be premiering OIKOS’ new video “Coagvla.” Make sure to check out their new tape Solve et Coagvla out now on Land Of Decay!
Who did I fear in 1982? I feared the media and all of the lies they put out about my generation. I was scared that my mom would ship me off to a boot camp that would march the punk rock out me. I remember watching this documentary with my mom called We Destroy the Family: Punks vs. Parents, and it was not fun times. Serena Dank was a money hungry asshole. Check out what the hardcore kids of 1982 had to deal with…When I watch this, I totally realize why the kids were disconnected from the parents!
Brilliant cinematographer and photographer William Lacalmontie has given us the honor of premiering his latest film venture for French band Treha Sektori, and it is a stunning piece of visual art set to a stunning new track from the band, “AH ESTEREH KOMH DERAH.” This film is actually a clip from the visuals Lacalmontie has put together for Treha Sektori’s 2013 live shows, and was premiered in full at their recent Paris show at Le Petit Bain on May 11th. From this 6-minute clip, I can only imagine the power of the full film when paired with the haunting sounds this band conjures. Sit back, and let your soul travel while watching this…
It’s no secret that we at CVLT Nation are huge fans of CHILDREN OF GOD. Their debut album We Set Fire To The Sky was one of the best releases so far this year. Seeing CHILDREN OF GOD live will make you realize how special this band is. Today it is our honor to be premiering their new video for “Unrelenting Storm” – this visual is intense as fuck!
I’m not going to even say too much, other than here is a cult classic movie for ballers. CVLT Nation now showing Rollerball after the jump!
DIE DIE AT THE HANDS OF DEAD MAN…This Bay Area band is all that and a bag of bones! They performed last Saturday at the Ghost Town Barn, and their gnarly set was captured by our comrade Kevin Hobbs. To read how much we dig DEAD MAN, go here! Vandals and Thieves Records are selling their demo tape “The All Too Well Known” HERE!
The other night I watched the 2007 documentary called Off the GRID: Life on the Mesa directed by Jeremy & Randy Stulberg. This film takes a hard look at a group of people who truly have said fuck you to society! Off the GRID: Life on the Mesa is a must-watch film, so do it NOW!
Summer is upon us. Instead of going outside, soaking up the sun, and enjoying yourself; you should stay inside, listen to The Frogs, and watch Toy Porno. If you aren’t nuts about The Frogs, that’s a problem. You need to go pick up a copy of It’s Only Right And Natural right now. I know I’ve probably not established that ethos well enough with any of you Cvlt readers to say this and have any credibility at all, but I am completely adamant over the inarguable fact that The Frogs are the greatest rock band… in the world. They’re a duo of two Wisconsin brothers, Jimmy and Dennis Flemion, famous for kickass performances– where they would be adorned in crazy wigs, black face, and gigantic sparkling wings. They are as goofy, nonsensical, and utterly ridiculous as they are serious, satirical, and absolutely brilliant. The lyrical content of their discography spreads over a plethora of engaging topics such as gay sex, catchin’ the aids, devil cocks, slavery in the US, the sexuality of God, grunge in Seattle, rape, dying in car crashes, having drugs that will blow yer mind, and pretty much anything else that would probably make most grandmothers really uncomfortable. For a lot of people it just comes off as ” just joke music,” but I’m sure there are plenty of you out there that fully appreciate just how awesome The Frogs are, jokes or not. And if you haven’t had a chance to check them out prior to reading this, Froggin’ it up now will probably be the best life decision you will ever make. Don’t go back to school. Don’t move out of yer ma’s basement. Don’t get a job. If doing any of those things are going to somehow cause you to continue keeping The Frogs out of your existence, then just don’t.
