Recently banned from youtube, music video for Reptile Youth’s track It’s Easy To Lose Yourself off their current self titled album directed by Peter Kaaden. “The video is the song. The song is the video. It’s not a complicated way around, it’s not the opposite and not an arty interpretation. You get what the song is about. Uncensored, honest & real. Everything is minimized to the necessaries in the song and in the video” Peter Kaaden.

Visit artist and musician Bradley Bailey’s bandcamp page for his one-man band, oxymoronically called Platonic Sex, and you’ll find a single song tiled Sweet Nothing available for download for $1000. Watch a youtube video made last summer in Brooklyn and you’ll find Bailey playing a fifiteen minute long, psychedelic and cacophonous set with a human femur.

Pas Un Autre contributor Abbey Meaker got a chance to catch up with Bailey where he in currently in Atlanta thinking things over. Read interview and see more pictures after the jump. [CLICK HERE...]

Adam Green is standing under the fluorescent pink glow of the Veniero’s Pasticceria sign on East 11th Street. Lanky, shaggy-haired and clad in olive green corduroy pants, a red paisley 70’s Western shirt and a somewhat ironically ostentatious two-toned fur coat to fend off the icy December air, he could almost pass as another twenty-something traipsing about the East Village—yet I immediately recognize him as the anti-folk wunderkind. Most know Green as one half of the Moldy Peaches, the quirky indie duo that achieved sleeper mainstream success via the Grammy-winning soundtrack of Diablo Cody’s Juno (2007). Green met Kimya Dawson, the other half of the Moldy Peaches, in the 90s in Mount Kisco, NY, where they both grew up. “She worked at the record store, and I worked at the pizzeria, so I would [CLICK HERE...]
