Ash - Machinery

Here's the new video from Ash for their next single 'Machinery' which is one of the best songs on the excellent 'Kablammo' and the video stars Tim Wheeler doing a spot of karaoke. Don't forget you can get acoustic versions of some of the songs from the album over on their website for the price of an email address and they play Dublin's Olympia on December 15th.

The Phoenix Foundation - Give Up Your Dreams

New Zealand band The Phoenix Foundation released their sixth studio album last month and "Give Up Your Dreams" is the title track off it. Being a fan since "Buffalo" came out it's great to see the band's sound growing but also maintaining their nose for a good pop hook. The video stars Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords/Lord of The Rings/The Muppets fame.

Video Directed by Loren Taylor
