[Watch] Breton - "Titan" (Official Music Video)
Ugh, Breton is on FIRE this year. I've barely been able to keep up with all the happenings and goings on with these guys, which is a fantastic problem to have if I'm honest. Since releasing their sophomore LP, War Room Stories the four-piece has basically been full throttle nonstop in the form of extensive touring just about everywhere as well as putting together some bonus goodies to go on their upcoming re-release of the now highly acclaimed release, which drops on November 10th. I've already expressed all my feels about the addictive little dance pop track, "Titan", but now the tune has a video to go with it and boy it is a stunner.
Way back before their debut album, Other People's Problems, dropped, I chatted with singer Roman Rappak about how the band likes to speak in multiple languages when it comes to their art, which obviously has always included video. I have to admit that prior to peeping the video below that the danciness of the tune sort of distracted me a bit from the subject matter. The video does an excellent job of reshifting the focus.
Fun fact about this video: it was shot a mere 15 minute walk outside of the bands old stomping grounds, Breton Labs aka the abandoned bank that the group had been living and creating in. (h/t to Noisey for that bit of info they got from Roman) 
Watch every last second of "Titan" below. 
[News] Aphex Twin to Reissue '…I Care Because You Do' and 'Richard D. James Album' on Vinyl

Electronic legend Richard D. James, better known by his most famous of aliases Aphex Twin, will get another one of his amazing works reissued by 1972 Records, who reissued his album Selected Ambient Works Volume II on vinyl earlier this year. On September 18th, two of Aphex Twin's best works (also with the creepiest album covers), 1995's ...I Care Because You Do and 1996's Richard D. James Album, will be reissued on vinyl for the first time in over ten years.

According to Exclaim, the Richard D. James Album reissue will only come as a single LP, meaning it most likely won't have the bonus tracks included in the original North American and Australian releases. Although, given the length of ...I Care Because You Do, it will most certainly be a double LP. Now would be a good time to mark September 18th on your calendars.

[Listen] The Flaming Lips and Ghostland Observatory - "Tasered and Maced"

The Flaming Lips will be re-issuing their Record Store Day release The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends on June 26th via Warner Bros. Records, and this time around the release will differ just a little bit from its RSD counterpart. In the rerelease, the Chris Martin-aided track "I Don't Want You to Die" has been replaced by an unreleased track featuring Aaron Behrens of Ghostland Observatory. The song, titled "Tasered and Maced," sees Behrens unloading a series of stories about cops, tasering and macing, monsters, and kicking his friends in the testicles. Listen to it below (via TheFutureHeart).
