Radiator Hospital’s got “Nothing Nice” to say in new, slow-mo video trip

Radiator Hospital | screenshot from “Nothing Nice” video

Ahead of Radiator Hospital‘s very-much-anticipated album, Play The Songs You Like, we’ve jammed to two singles before the October 20th release. Now joining the ranks of “Dance Party” and “Pastoral Radio Hit” is the song / video for “Nothing Nice.”

Filmed by Nathan Stephens-Griffin — or “the legendary vegan anarchist philosopher/drummer/filmmaker” as Sam Cook-Parrott likes to call him, as seen in a recent Facebook post — the video follows minimalist cues in storyline, as Cook-Parrot and Cynthia Schemmer just kind of hang out in a living room.

What is vacant in narrative is made up for in visual ...

Live Review: Girlpool + Vagabon @ Rock & Roll Hotel, 6/11/17

Intrepid mysterious Special Guest Star The Paper went in search of good live sounds, and the following is what transpired when he took in Girlpool and Vagabon at the Rock & Roll Hotel.

Sunday night marked a departure for Laetitia. She had been on tour with Tegan and Sara and I could sense the longing in her voice as she told us about the balloons the dynamic Canadian duo had on stage. Then she burst into a wide smile before continuing, “…but you’re here.”

That was a very cute way to get the sold out crowd cheering. I had seen ...

Vagabon blasts off with Infinite Worlds release show at PhilaMOCA

“You’re a big fish now, though!” someone shouted from sidestage, just before Vagabon launched into “The Embers,” the final song of a stunning record release show at PhilaMOCA on Saturday night. Vagabon — the stage name of one Laetitia Tamko — was riding high on the release of Infinite Worlds, out the 24th on Father/Daughter Records. “The Embers,” a song exploring a more solipsistic landscape, repeats in its refrain that “I’m just a small fish.” While inside, Tamko may feel like a small fish in a big pond, the acclaimed release of Infinite Worlds and it’s two ...
