[kml_flashembed movie="" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

Badass ninja dominatrixes, pizza, computer geekery, and live bands – what more is there to life? Clearly not much per Aabaraki’s latest video for “Karate.” The song is a nostalgic mesh of soft rock your daddy listened to, 90′s R&B you slow danced with your crush to, and a touch of modern soul you played yesterday while burning the incense no one knows you have. Our favorite line, maybe? “Kung Fu, come through. Jujitsu, I need you.” Here’s to just saying what the eff you feel. Check for Aabaraki’s complete EP at the end of the month.

Hudson Mohawke’s “Thunder Bay”


Scotland’s Hudson Mohawke has done it again with his new single, “Thunder Bay.” The track sounds like a bunch of 6-year-olds having a rave at bootcamp. And of course it works cause it’s HudMo, duh. You won’t have to wait too long for another dose, either; The Warp Records artist will release his upcoming EP, Satin Panthers, in early August.

Video: The Park’s “Belle”


[kml_flashembed movie="" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

You know The Park; They’re the rhythm section behind the awesome left-coast based group, Grillade. “Belle” is in fact a single from The Park’s June 28th slated debut album, The Process. The video is simple and moody like the track with a vintage-y mélange of overexposed-ish color bursts; It feels like it could be the soundtrack to an indie emo film about love in San Francisco. Shouts to Lefto for a job well done on this piece!
