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.

Honeyblood reveal a strange new video for 'Sea Hearts'

Scottish duo, Honeyblood have released a brand new video for their latest single 'Sea Hearts'. The Thomas James-directed visuals follow a sea creature who decided a house party. "We wanted to make something that ties in with the whole aesthetic story of the 'Babes Never Die' album. So we were lucky enough to be able to get Thomas James and his wonderful team onboard again. He took ideas from the song and transformed them into this amazing narrative. It was captivating to watch the sea witch come to life through the talent of the lead dancers and crazy costume prosthetics."
