So-and-so is releasing a new five-track EP in a few months, your problematic fave dropped a pretty risque new video and that washed up band that no one has even thought of for a good decade now, has decided to reunite and head out on a world tour. These are the things I need to post at a fervent pace, to not only keep up with the over-saturated blogosphere, but to harness the steady stream of emails that will inevitably continue their high-pressured pursuit into my inbox all hours of the day for the remainder of the week, (and probably on the weekend too, depending on the publicist.)

So to combat the rat-race, we're offering a content compromise in the form of our new daily column, Live From The Gutter - an afternoon recap of the day's press releases and the contents of my 405 email.

CROCODILES share new video for 'Telepathic Lover'

Following the announcement of details for their forthcoming sixth album, Dreamless, set for release on October 21 via Zoo Music, CROCODILES have shared a new video for single 'Telepathic Lover.' The video was recorded in Mexico City by director Andrés Kenugan, who had this to say: "The concept of the video comes from the lyrics to the song. We wanted to recreate those feelings that come to mind when you find someone else - in this case this person has these feelings when he is watching a video of Crocodiles... We wanted to show in this from the point of view of the shadows; they are talking."

Hear A Grave With No Name's new track 'Pirouette'

Liar & Mutual Friend's video for 'Sidewinder' comes with a warning

'Sidewinder' is the new single from Tessier-Ashpool Recordings label head, Liar in collaboration with Mutual Friend. "In the desolate, brutalist aftermath of an unspecified apocalypse, Lady Guidance (Saga Xux), the knight errant Propulsion (Mutual Friend) and the zealot Warhead (Liar) roam the ruins of the old world, in search of Baby Disarmament and her promise of absolution," Liar explains. "In the end, they alchemically resynthesize warm-blooded humanity from Warhead's elder blood, Propulsion's new blood, and Guidance's crimson light - primordial humours, the ink and petrol of literacy and industry, and virginal purity amalgamating into a sustainable future."
