You’ve probably noticed that we haven’t been posting much on the site lately. We’re just going through some restructuring right now and that is the reason for the hiatus. If you are interested in writing for Hot Shit, we’d love to hear from you via our Contact page. In the meantime, we aren’t leaving you music lovers dry; head over to our YouTube Channel to watch the latest music videos we deem worthy, or to our Soundcloud Likes page to check out our new favourite tracks, as we’ll be updating both lists daily. The site should be back up and running later this summer. Thank you for sticking around with us!

Video Premiere & Contest: Tomorrow We Move To Hawaii - Still Life

image

We’re stoked to team up with Austin-based label Red Eye Transit once again to premiere Norwegian indie-electro duo (and an instant band crush of ours from the first listen) Tomorrow We Move To Hawaii's “Still Life,” the addictive title track from their four-song debut EP. The Thor Brenne-directed conceptual video was shot in an indoor parking lot in Oslo and sees a contemporary dancer cutting loose to Eyvind Brox’ wacky synthy beats and Marianne Stranger’s intoxicating sublime vocals. We are avid fans of this duo and of how effortlessly they bring out the wild dancers in us. Watch the video below and you will be too.

More exciting news: Red Eye Transit sent us 5 copies of the Still Life 12” to give away along with accompanying tote bags, as well as bottle-opener keychains and beer koozies (all shown below). To win one of the 5 packages, like us on Facebook and answer this question. Contest ends on June 28th inclusively, and we’ll pick 5 people randomly from the batch. Good luck all!

CHVRCHES - Gun (official video)

image

Last Friday, CHVRCHES released yet another video from their much anticipated debut album The Bones Of What You Believe, which, by the way, finally has a release date; it sees the day of light on September 23rd via Glassnote Records. The kaleidoscopic video for “Gun” was directed by data-mosher Pensacola. Watch it below.

Bonus: we went to see CHVRCHES play with Still Corners at Le National in Montréal last Saturday and took a few videos. Enjoy.

Foals - Bad Habit (official video)

Oxford rockers Foals have just unveiled a video for their latest single “Bad Habit.” Their experience with director Nabil Elderkin went so well with their last single “Late Night" that they re-enlisted him to visualize the NSFW video for "Bad Habit." The track is taken from their third album Holy Fire, available now via Transgressive. Watch it below.

Eyedress and Skint Eastwood - Nature Trips (official video)

image

Manila-based Idris Vicuña, more commonly known as his chillwaver moniker Eyedress (as well as the lead guitarist of lo-fi garage pop outfit Bee Eyes), released an album with Skint Eastwood earlier this year called Hearing Colors via Phantasma Disques. We have yet to listen to it, but if the other tracks are on par with their new single “Nature Trips,” we’d definitely like to get our hands on that LP. Watch the video for “Nature Trips,” directed by Bee Eyes bandmate Julius Valledor, below.

Elliphant - Music Is Life

image

"Music Is Life" is the first single to surface from the forthcoming debut album by Sweden’s Elliphant. The album was produced by the red-hot team behind the Icona Pop and Niki and the Dove albums at Ten Music, so needless to say, expectations are high. If it’s anything like this very summery single, recorded with Jamaica’s Ras Fraser Junior, we are all in for a treat.

Kate Boy - The Way We Are (official video)

image

We love Swedish electro-pop quartet Kate Boy, but who doesn’t aside from Al Qaeda? That’s what we thought. While there is no release date penciled in yet for their much anticipated debut album, you can check out the self-directed video for their new single “The Way We Are” below. It’s available via IAMSOUND Records.

Austra - Home (official video)

Austra have just unveiled the first video from their new album. “Home” is taken from their forthcoming full-length Olympia, the follow-up to 2011’s excellent debut Feel It Break, which is due for release on June 18th via Paper Bag/Domino. The video was directed by Noel Paul & Stefan Moore of That Go. Watch it now.

Empire of the Sun - Alive (official video)

Empire of the Sun have finally unveiled their video for “Alive” after teasing us with the track’s audio a couple of weeks ago. The song stems from their forthcoming sophomore album, due out on June 18th via Astralwerks. Watch it below.

Is Tropical - Dancing Anymore (official video)

image

"Dancing Anymore" is the much-anticipated first single to stem from Is Tropical's forthcoming sophomore album I’m Leaving, which comes out May 20th via Kitsuné Records. Megaforce, the French directors foursome behind the brilliant video that was Is Tropical’s 2011 hit “The Greeks,” once again direct and definitely do not disappoint. NSFW!
