Wild Beasts Perform ‘Wanderlust’ on the Royal Festival Hall Organ.

One of the best tracks to emerge from the British music scene this year came from the unlikely foursome of Wild Beasts, off their album Present Tense. They recently reinvented the track when presented with the incredible opportunity to perform an exclusive version of ‘Wanderlust’ utilising the legendary 7866 pipe organ in the Royal Festival Hall in London, which has been out of action since 2005.

New Music Video. St Vincent – Birth in Reverse.

2014 gave us Annie Clark’s self-titled album, St. Vincent, and excellent contribution to this year’s musical offerings. She’s released the visuals for ‘Birth in Reverse’ directed by Will Perron, featuring the silver-haired icon jamming in front of trippy backdrops – a distant cluster of stars and galaxies and something Escher-like. It’s quite special: Read more
