Tiger Bites: Vol. 4 (The Hives, Blood Red Shoes, Super Mario Medley)

tiger-biteHiya kids!

Slicky-T’s back with some more sick-ass videos he’s stolen shamelessly from the infinite grab-bag that is the interwebs and holy balls! We got us some primo content right here boys and girls, proper industrialstrengthshit.

This week I’m featuring the new Hives video for “Go Right Ahead” (the track that 5FM are murdering the fuck out of as we speak), as well as a seriously low-budget video from a band called The Unkindness Of Ravens featuring a blonde with a duct tape fetish 0_o

There’s also the new Blood Red Shoes single “Lost Kids” (a little obsessed with them at the moment) and to kickstart your weekend in the best possible way, a Super Mario 3 Medley that is guaranteed to warm the cockles of your cold, black heart.

So let’s get to it, shall we?



Dig this next one, it’s The Unkindness Of Ravens. Not sure if I’m totally sold on this track just yet, it hovers in that grey area between being utter shite and kinda cool.

I like the fact that the production (both of the video and the song) is super low budget. No digital gimmickry going on here, this shit’s rougher than a goat’s knee.

Thoughts anyone?



Ahh the Blood Red Shoes. This band can do no wrong in my eyes (ears?). I’d rate them right up there with Silversun Pickups when it comes to newish rock bands that are blowing my hair back.

Speaking of which, you can stream the new Silversun Pickups (Neck Of The Woods) here if you wanna give it a spin.



And now you just gotta kick back, close your eyes and get lost in the following vid. If I had to take guitar lessons again, this is the kind of shit I’d want to learn.



Watching those songs played like that makes you realise how fucking well-written they actually are. Mario 3 was always the best one, basically everyone knows that.

Have a killer weekend party people, see ya’ll on the other side Winking smile



Tiger Bites: vol.3 (Alabama Shakes)

Infinity-Blade-AToday’s Tiger Bites is going to be super short, sweet and to the point because I’m actually writing this in the past (it’s Wednesday) while I’m still at my sister’s place in Holland and I got gaming to do.

My youngest nephew and I have become hopelessly obsessed with Infinity Blade and have decided we won’t sleep safe until we have the BEST OF EVERYTHING IN THE GAME.

We need to get about 3.5 million gold pieces to do this, we have 2.2 currently and considering you get about 5 thousand every time you kill someone, we got a LOONNGG way to go.

So here’s a band that will become cool in about 3 months once the radio stations get a hold of them. They call themselves the Alabama Shakes and their first album just dropped the other day.

Song’s called “Hold On”, which is appropriate because it’ll be the future when you guys read this, Friday to be exact, so the weekend will be just around the corner.




Have killer weekend party people, I’m back in SA on Monday, I’ll probably be completely poked from the 24 hour trip back (via Doha, where we sit from 12 till 6am, BLEAUGH!) so my next post will probably be Tuesday.

Until then Knipogende emoticon



Tiger Bites: Vol.2 (Bosco Delrey, Screaming Females, Liz Green)

BoscoMemphisI know what you guys want because it’s Friday and I want it too – something, anything to kill some time and bring the weekend on a little faster.

Good new is I got just the thing for ya. This week is 70’s psychedelic stoner rock legends Bosco Delrey, weirdo grungey basement dwellers Screaming Females and old school acoustic blues siren Liz Green.

And then, right at the end of it all, I’m going to throw in something mellow to ease you into the weekend gently and who knows? Maybe give you something to smile about.

Let’s kick it off with ol’ Bosco Delrey first with their video for “Baby’s Got A Blue Flame” because it’s my favourite of the three and has a blonde bass guitarist that is going to completely fuck your shit up.



Next up it’s five foot hellraiser Marissa Paternoster belting out “It All Means Nothing” off the Screaming Females upcoming album Ugly.

If you don’t know this band I can almost guarantee you that when you hear … sing you will be overcome with a strong desire to punch her in the throat, but give this track a little time and play it again in a day or so and you just might have one of those, “Huh… it’s actually pretty cool” moments.

The video is pretty rough though. Maybe go back to whatever it was you were doing and just let the song play in the background.

Don’t say I didn’t warn ya. It’s like she read my “Stray Cat Recipes” post and took that shit to heart…



We’re going to tone things right down with this sombre little piece from Liz Green. The video was painstakingly made entirely from paper and filmed with stop animation.

I think it’s on a whole other level. Definitely show this to your friends.

They will think you are very cool.



Lastly, here’s the surprise I promised. Are ya ready kids?

I tracked down the new Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros single for you, it’s called “Man On Fire”.

Admittedly it’s no “Home” but I still really like this song and am stoked they’re back with album number two cause number one was a real game-changer for me.



Have a killer weekend party people and look after your bad selves Winking smile



Tiger Bites: Vol.1 (The Shins, Miniature Tigers, Guards)

guardsYep. It’s official, I’m bringing Tiger Bites back from the dead and posting them on my site every Friday so you crazy kids have something cool to zone out to before the weekend.

And all you lazy basterds have to do is hit the site on a Friday to hear some sick new music every week and then brag to your friends about how rad you are.

This week I’m posting The Shins playing their new track on Letterman, a video from Miniature Tigers featuring large-breasted female doctors, Lana Del Ray’s new video for “Blue Jeans” which isn’t shit (isn’t great either) and a fucking KILLER track by a band called Guards that I know you’ll dig.







Awesome, ne?

Have a killer weekend party mense. See ya’ll on the flipside.
