TMBG’S Dial-A-Song week 40 brings us an alternate version of Black Ops, originally heard on Nanobots. The collage slideshow video dedicated to all dystopian modernists was compiled by the inimitable Rolf Conant.

Pre-order new album Why?!

black ops black ops
a holiday for secret cops
black ops black ops
dropping presents from the helicopter

it’s been a long year
we’ve been so far from home
too many people here
here come the drones
we take the best of it
and make a mess of it
ripping up some lawn
and then we’re gone

black sites black sites
a thousand miles from day or night
black sites black sites
the story will remain unwritten

before we make you gone
you’d best be running on
stick to the music, child
don’t get us riled
hey, there’s a spot we missed
I see a communist
and there’s another one
and his dumb son

black ops black ops
little vials filled with knock-out drops
black ops black ops
Maybe leave you in your old gym locker

black ops black ops
a thousand miles from day or night
black ops black ops
a story told before rewriting

hey, there’s a passport here
but it could disappear
tarmac to landing pad
don’t look so sad
we fly to Amsterdam
and in a little bit
we’ll sing our special song
and this is it

you’ll be standing when the music stops
we’re not worrying about the optics

Purevolume have premiered the new video for “Call Me Kuchu”, from Taylor Locke’s album Time Stands Still.

Known as the former guitarist for L.A.-based indie rockers Rooney, Taylor Locke released a solo LP earlier this year. Titled Time Stands Still, Locke showcases a songwriting prowess that fans of his former band may not have realized. Today, we’re excited to premiere the latest video off that album. “Call Me Kuchu” is styled as an old fashioned movie, but don’t let the fun vibes fool you. The song’s serious tenor is played down by the imagery, which is something that Locke intended.

“The challenge was to respect the serious nature of the song, but without illustrating the lyrical content too literally,” Locke says of the video. “I wanted to walk the line between having fun, but also acknowledging the matter at hand. I hope people will be entertained and drawn in by the look of the video, but also take a close listen to whats going on under the surface.”

Watch the video here, get Time Stand’s Still on LP, CD or digital HERE.

Dial-A-Song Week 31. Video directed by Todd Goldstein.

I haven’t seen you in forever I’m so sad cause I missed you so much
I missed you so much I’m so so sad
I haven’t seen you in forever I’m so sad cause I missed you so much
I missed you so much I’m so so sad
I haven’t seen you in forever I’m so glad we’re together again
together again I’m so so glad
I haven’t seen you in forever I’m so annoyed cause I forgot how much you bug me
I forgot how much you bug me
I’m so so annoyed
Go away and leave me alone. No you go away. No you. No you no you.
No you. No you NO YOU. NO YOU.
Since we’ve been apart I see that I cannot live without you
I cannot live without you don’t ever leave me again
I haven’t seen you in forever I’m so glad we’re together again
together again I’m so so glad
