It’s that time again. It’s time for us to pick our favorite music video of the week! A lot of good material was released over the past few days but we had to narrow it down to one. We based our decision on creativity, music, and most importantly why you won’t see it on MTV…but should!

Sigur Rós are shutting it down – at least for the time being. Sigur Rós frontman Jonsi Birgisson has revealed that the Icelandic group is now on an indefinite hiatus.
They even tossed out the work they’ve done on a new album, a follow-up to 2008′s Með Suð I Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust.

With a nod to the S’s this week, BeatCrave is pleased to spotlight Sea Wolf, Sigur Rós and The Streets, a trio of excellent musical artists who are preparing new albums for our listening pleasure.
We begin with the indie/alternative pop goodness of Sea Wolf, where it’s been announced that Alex Brown Church’s as-yet-untitled sophomore album will be released in September on Dangerbird Records. While his well-received debut record, Leaves in the River, was a mostly solo affair, Church is looking to incorporate a full band style into the recording process. Church is presently in Omaha, NE working on the album with producer, and Bright Eyes member, Mike Mogis. “You’re A Wolf” was the breakout hit from the 2007 debut album.

Remember in high school when your English teacher would make you write compare and contrast essays? Well, for some reason I always tried to sneak just a comparison paper by her – I hated writing the contrast part. Something about how if two things are inherently different, its more fun to find similarities than to point out the obvious differences.

This article is aimed at taking my two favorite things in the world and smashing them together: LOST and music.
