Cartel Madras shares the epic “FEAR & LOATHING” official video from The Serpent & The Tiger

Cartel Madras is sharing the official video for “FEAR & LOATHING,” from their forthcoming project The Serpent & The Tiger, the third installment of the Project Goonda trilogy, out August 19th, 2021 on Royal Mountain Records/Sub Pop. The high concept visual is an entry point into The Serpent & The Tiger multiverse and was co-directed by the duo and Jashan Makan.
Cartel Madras’s Eboshi and Contra share this about the video, “‘FEAR & LOATHING,’ is composed of several stories and represents the heart of our upcoming project, The Serpent & The Tiger. The song is an exploration in duality, a major plot point in our story, and our most ambitious filmmaking experiment yet. We teamed up with Toronto producer Dom Dias again to bring our audience a cinematic track, and dynamic music video that pushes us both as artists.
“We filmed ‘FEAR & LOATHING’’ over the course of one month and three cities: Calgary, Alberta, Toronto, Ontario, and London, UK. We were inspired by Season 1 of True Detective (2014), and the films Dark City (1998), Skyfall (2012), and La Femme Nikita (1990). Taking visual cues from Brian De Palma, and studying the pacing of works by Marisha Pessl, ‘FEAR & LOATHING,’ is a culmination of our influences and love of artful storytelling with striking cinematography.
“This music video stars UK-based, Tamil model, Sheerah Ravindren (Black Is King, Primark, Queer Possible) as ‘The Serpent.’ Sheerah is an incredible force, and a rising star; we’ve all wanted to work together since we found each other online a year ago. Sharanya M takes on the mysterious role of “The Tiger.” She is from our other home state, Kerala, and a collective member of Sansfucss, a collective of multidisciplinary BIPOC artists from Canada. Meanwhile, Eboshi and song Dom portray the two hostages, and Contra tackles the role of ‘The Defector,’ alongside Bear, her canine companion.”

“FEAR & LOATHING” is Cartel Madras’s third single of 2021, and follows the release of  “Dream Girl Concept” in June, and “DRIFT”  in January. The tracks are from their forthcoming project The Serpent & The Tiger, the third installment of the Project Goonda trilogy (which includes 2018’s Trapistan and 2019’s Age of the Goonda). The Serpent & The Tiger features guest appearances from Backxwash, Dom Dias, Airospace, Tyris White, Jide, and Shiro Jackson, with production by Dias (tracks 1-4), Naphi (track 5), White (tracks 6-8), and Jide (tracks 9-10), and will available on all DSPs August 19th, 2021 from Royal Mountain Records/Sub Pop.

What people are saying about Cartel Madras:
“They’ve got an absolutely wicked flow — think M.I.A. meets Cardi B. Hints of traditional Tamil music are sprinkled throughout.” [“Goonda Gold”] - Stereogum
Cartel Madras are smashing barrier musically and are sure to blow your mind with their uniqueness.” [Age of the Goonda] - CLASH
“Full of raw, powerful, nonchalant energy”  [“Goonda Gold”] - Gal-Dem
Age of the Goonda is an invigorating five-track blast…More, please.” - The Wire
“Comprised of six tracks, the EP possesses layered bass lines pumped with adrenaline, a range of Indian classical instruments weaved in and hooks that stay in your brain for days.” [Age of the Goonda] - NME
Age of the Goonda provides an electrifying burst of the duo’s live show energy in concentrated form.” - Loud & Quiet
“In pop analogy, this hip-hop duo comprising Calgary-bred, Chennai-born siblings Bhagya and Priya Ramesh is somewhat like a Tamil Pulp Fiction-meets-MIA. With a carousel of bad-ass, no-fucks-given, brown girl anthems, Cartel Madras is brought to life by two sisters who don’t shy of braggadocio (you can’t miss their stack of gold jewelry) as they spout songs about feminism, empowerment and inclusivity.” [“12 New Musicians Set to Breakthrough in 2020”] - Vogue India

Amen Dunes Returns with New Single, “Feel Nothing” (With Sleaford Mods) + Signs to Sub Pop Worldwide

Amen Dunes (aka the project of Damon McMahon) returns with “Feel Nothing,” a powerful and honest first statement since the release of 2018’s beloved Freedom, and his debut release with Sub Pop. Recorded in Los Angeles with co-producer Ariel Rechtshaid and mixed by Craig Silvey, “Feel Nothing” begins with McMahon’s unmistakable voice chanting “Kingdom, kingdom, kingdom, kingdom, kingdom // be a prophet” until the Sleaford Mods rhythm drops and McMahon continues “Every time I hear a story // Got no good from it.” The song, which features synths by Freedom-collaborator Panoram, gradually introduces the rhythm-heavy next chapter in Amen Dunes’ sound, before a duet by Sleaford Mods’ Jason Williamson and McMahon carries the song out. Where Freedom was “[Amen Dunes’] euphoric breakthrough … silvery and romantic, like a hallucination of the classic-rock songbook”

(Pitchfork), “Feel Nothing” is a bold reflection on resistance, and a step further in the intentional reimagining of the world of Amen Dunes.

I feel nothing at all

Do you feel nothing too?

I have nothing to say

Don’t drag me down with you

Some days wish I was dead

Some days wish I was you

Every time I hear a story

Got no good from it

Can’t change the situation

When everything’s the same

Still in love, just a little

Aww my mind forgets

You stole that piece from the devil

But you know me, I’d do the same

Get everyone off my back

You can gossip, but I don’t care

I headed off one day without even talking, 

and I got lost from there

In the middle of a show I break down, yeah

Can’t remember what to say

Can’t shake this ugly feeling, baby, but it’s not lasting

He was thinking of God, when he begged them to stop

Is there someone up there?

You will never know she said

Come right out and say it

I’ve lived enough to sing it

Come on, show em what you know

You’re gonna reap just what you sow

Get your opinions off my back

I said I’m going up the hill

When winter comes I will get things done

Start doing what I say

See the fires off in the distance

The little goddess said

We may not win this one, but I predict it, son

You might be a prophet

There is no way to stop our big stone love

Keep going up the mountain, yeah

From the mouth don’t come a kingdom

String me up I don’t care

Said I’ve lived enough to sing it

They said stop and drop him until he talks

But you’ll never make him say it

Every time I look up to you

Nothing to say

The king might prevail

But just for today

Every time I look up to you

Nothing to say

Those who talk hard

Got nothing to say.

Watch The Shins’ Oh, Inverted World (20th Anniversary Remaster) Official Videos With Newly Remastered Audio and HD Visuals “The Past and Pending” & “New Slang” (2004 Alternate Video) Available On YouTube For The First Time Ever

Earlier this month Sub Pop released the 20th Anniversary remastered version of The Shins’ much-beloved debut album Oh, Inverted World. Today, the videos for “The Past and Pending,” the album’s lamenting closing cut, and the 2004 Alternate Video for “New Slang,” are available for the first time ever as official uploads on YouTube. They both contain newly remastered audio and HD visual upgrades.  Updated versions of “Know Your Onion!” and the original, 2001 version of “New Slang,” are also available.
Originally released on June 19th, 2001, Oh, Inverted World is the earth-shattering, indie-rock-redefining album from The Shins, and is presented here in its finest form. The classic tunes get new life with mastering by Bob Ludwig, under band leader James Mercer’s watchful eye. The new front cover of this edition of Oh, Inverted World features an ‘inverted’ color scheme, on a die-cut jacket, and includes a booklet filled with vintage photos, handwritten lyrics, liner notes, and more.
The music on Oh, Inverted World is obviously essential, and this remastering truly makes this the album Mercer always wanted it to be. Never quite satisfied with the sonics of the original, Mercer took the 20th anniversary of the album as his opportunity to finally set the (literal!) record straight. And the results sound stellar: great for new fans, and well worth the attention for those who fell in love with it in the first place.
Oh, Inverted World saw new praise from the likes of MOJO (“The newly finessed sound is consistent with Mercer’s erudite craftsmanship.” ★★★★), UNCUT (8/10), The Sun (★★★★ ½) and Shindig (★★★★★), alongside reappraisals in interviews and reviews from the likes of BillboardEntertainment WeeklyApple MusicStereogumBrooklyn VeganFLOOD and Treble.

The Oh, Inverted World (20th Anniversary Remaster) is now available from megamart.subpop.comThe Shins merch store, select independent retailers in North Americathe U.K., EU, Australia and New Zealand. The vinyl LP will be available in the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand on July 23rd, 2021.
