THE JIM MITCHELLS – PLANET ABSORBED (Third Eye Stimuli Records)
Sydney-based band, The Jim Mitchells, have released the whacked out video for their debut single“Planet Absorbed”. The film clip transports us into the bizarre world of Jim Mitchell - the multi-faceted master mind behind the band. Filmed and edited by Sydney lads - The Lagoon Collective the clip follows on from the initial buzz of the bands first single release. with the clip conceptualised and directed by Jim Mitchell himself, join Jim as he trips through multiple alternate realities, blending together to create one crazy chunk of garage psych rock! Having listened to this song for the first time at 11.00pm in the comfort of my bed, it took about 2 second's of this 'psych-infused rukus' (Happy) to get me head bobbing and out of bed. Think... The Murlocs, coupled with Thee Oh See's...
“The idea of the clip was to show the different aspects of myself within the writing and recording process and have them represented visually by the different use of colour and setting”.

ROYAL BLOOD - WHERE ARE YOU NOW (Warner Music)
The duo saw the trailer for Vinyl and wrote "Where Are You Now," a swaggery, stompy cut anchored in fuzzed up, muscular riffs.
