Fuse premieres Andrew Jackson Jihad’s “Temple Grandin” video

Head over to FUSE today to check out the brand new Andrew Jackson Jihad video for Christmas Island album opener “Temple Grandin.”

Spoiler alert: it’s fantastic!!

http://s1dm.my/AJJFuse

Filmed in Los Angeles, the “Temple Grandin” video is the brainchild of director/editor Joe Stakun, director of photography Eric Bader and producer Hannah Getz. This small, dare-we-say DIY team of 3 (along with their staff of incredibly helpful P.A.s, of course) took some of the more visual themes within the song and brought them to life on three massive projector screens in an L.A. soundstage.

“There’s a Moon Man in Joe Stakun’s future for sure,” said singer/guitarist Sean Bonnette. “This video is the perfect visual representation of Temple Grandin. We loved every minute of making it.”

Andrew Jackson Jihad

With just two short weeks to go until the May 6 release of Andrew Jackson Jihad’s new album, Christmas Island, the band is currently streaming a more somber offering called “Linda Ronstadt” via IMPOSE.

In the month since announcing their signing to SideOneDummy, Andrew Jackson Jihad have unleashed 2 new songs from Christmas Island into the world. Noisey first called debut single “Children Of God” a jaw-dropper and boldly declared that Christmas Island has “album of the year written all over it,” while Consequence Of Sound raved about “Kokopelli Face Tattoo” as “one of the fuzzier offerings” on the album but “still containing all the elements of a great AJJ song.”

Listen to “Children Of God” here:

Happy release day, PUP!

Happy release day to our Canadian brothers, PUP! We know we say we’re stoked all the time, and that’s because we are, but we’re REALLY stoked to finally have this record out across the world.

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 11.33.38 AM

Sometime last summer, one of the brilliant minds here at S1D (hi, Kenny) sent around an album by a band called PUP. We were immediately hooked. We started playing the record several times a day and after hearing about how insane their performance at CMJ was, we knew they were a perfect fit.

Fast forward to today and we’re proud to be releasing their incredible debut album. Full of unforgettable hooks and unbridled energy, PUP’s self-titled debut will go down as one of our favorite SideOneDummy releases and hope you all enjoy it!

Stream the album on YouTube: http://s1dm.my/1gzl0bg
Stream the album on Spotify: http://s1dm.my/QZt8HR
Buy it in our store: http://s1dm.my/PUP_PUP
Buy it on iTunes: http://s1dm.my/PUP_iTunes

And check out some of the great things people are saying about PUP:

“Glorious shout-alongs, beefy riffs, bursts of feedback and furious energy.” 
 SPIN

“A perfect ten… by the laws of Pitchfork’s nerdy algebraic backroom formula, it should receive a 10.0. On The A.V. Club’s elementary school-style letter grading system, it merits an A+.”
 Noisey

“With a beer in hand and an irreverent middle finger on the other, PUP makes punk rock effortless.”
 Consequence Of Sound

“Catchy, anthemic and raw as hell.”
–  BrooklynVegan

“It’s a tricky balance between aggression and pop, and they get it just right.”
–  Stereogum

“Intelligent and visceral in equal measure, PUP is effortlessly cool, charmingly nerdy and wholly brilliant.
–  NME

“A fiercely intelligent energy that’s raw and sophisticated in equal measure.” 
 Alternative Press

“Canadian giants-in-waiting.”
– DIY Magazine

“PUP’s debut full-length album is a harrowingly bold, fearlessly diverse, flawless album.”
– Under The Gun Review

“They have been able to take their melting pot of influences and craft a genre-hopping record that never has a dull moment.”
– Made Of Chalk

“Fiery tracks packed with scorching guitars and hooky melodies.”
–  Exclaim!

Check Out PUP’s Ripping DAYTROTTER session!

A few weeks ago, PUP hung out at The Rat Cave in Brooklyn to record this incredibly heavy Daytrotter session.

“These songs are spectacular flourishes of what it feels like to take the piss out of a bad hand and reshuffle, with a big grin on their faces and sweat dripping down onto the cards.”

Check it out below:
