UNDER THE RADAR: PIXIES – “RING THE BELL”
Earlier this year, the Pixies released their divisive new collection Indie Cindy and have been putting out music videos intermittently since the their first reunion EP. The latest is for “Ring The Bell” and it was directed by Lital Mizel and Adi Frimmerman, two Pixies fans who recorded a viral video of themselves lip-synching to “Hey” back in 2005. The band met the women at a show in Israel and let them direct and star in their newest music video. The clip for “Ring The Bell” sees them dumpster-diving and hanging out in graffiti-filled abandoned buildings before ending up at a circus-like party in a forest.

UNDER THE RADAR: Mark Lanegan Band – “Harvest Home”.
Mark Lanegan has shared a new song, ‘Harvest Home’.The track features on the new Mark Lanegan Band album, ‘Phantom Radio‘, which is set for release on October 20, 2014 .
Lanegan has said that the new album was inspired by listening to 1980s satellite radio whilst driving around his current hometown of Los Angeles. “That’s the music that was happening when I started making music. And although the [Screaming] Trees drew on Nuggets psychedelia, 13th Floor Elevators and Love, we were actually listening to Echo And The Bunnymen, Rain Parade, the Gun Club. A lot of British post-punk. We loved that stuff. I just waited until I was in my late forties before I started ripping it off.”
