Yesterday, I commented how Yeasayer and their new song/video “Ambling Alp” reminded me of Klaxons’s songs and videos, but with a bigger budget/better production. Well, here’s all five Klaxons’s videos all from their debut album Myths of the Near Future. Apparently, their really fuckin’ anticipated follow-up is on it’s way (this year hopefully?), but until then, you can check out these videos.

They have had a few loose releases here and there, but one was a mix where they don’t really do much but apply some minimal house beats on 26 songs by other people (and one by them remixed and mixed with an Aleister Crowley reading!) so that they all fit together as A Bugged Out Mix by Klaxons.

The other, however, is a cover of “Sweetheart” by Suicide which appears on the single Sweetheart (click the link to listen!) which was a tribute to Alan Vega for his 70th birthday! It also featured a cover of “Super Subway Comedian” by German experimentalists No Bra and a rendition of “Speedway” by Vega himself.

Anyway, what was I saying. Oh yeah, much like Ali noticed with Yeasayer sounding like they listen to heavy metal, I think the Klaxons must too. Weird, I hate metal, but love two bands that seem influenced by it. Guess I just hate douche bags. Well all of their videos are highly cinematic and very sci-fi. And the music is bangarang too, packed full of Burroughs and Pynchon references (the best sci-fi writers, sans Vonnegut). Alright, this has gone on too long. Watch and enjoy.
