“Matt Smith, David Tennant In New ‘Doctor Who’ Behind-The-Scenes’” Video
May 19, 2013
Last night marked the season 7 finale of Doctor Who, where show runner Steven Moffat teased that he would finally answer the question on every fanboy/fangirl’s lips…who exactly IS the Doctor? And while we’re at it, why is Clara “The Impossible Girl?” We’d tell you how those questions were resolved, but (adopts River Song voice) “spoilers!”
In addition to a truly WTF ending (is this development good? Bad? Feel free to speculate—we got nothing), fans were also treated to a behind the scenes look at the forthcoming 50th anniversary episode via a video clip with former Doctor David Tennant and current Doctor Matt Smith.
In it, the two actors revel that playing the Doctor is fun/hard work, and that the two Doctors will meet in the special. They also tease out another character, which finds the whole paring quite bemusing. Check out the video interview below (or over-analyze the photo above).
The new episode will air on November 23. Jenna-Louise Coleman, Billie Piper, Jemma Redgrave, John Hurt and Joanna Page are among the reported stars.
On June 25 Mood Rings will release their debut album VPI Harmony via Mexican Summer. Head of that get to know their hallucinatory auditory and visual style via the trippy video for album cut “Hollow Dye (Defected Crystal).” What color does your mood ring turn when you hear cool new music?
“Rebecka” is a dramatic, 1980s flavored ballad from Stockholm duo, Eliot Grace. Be prepared to have your heartstrings tugged on a bit. Running into the arms of a loved one isn’t completely out of line either. The duo has released several other Soundcloud cuts, but no word on a proper album as of yet.
“Space Time” is a fluffy piece of girl-group pop, brought to you by La Sera’s Katy Goodman and The Hush Sound’s Greta Morgan. Inspired by a walk past Los Angeles’ Griffith Observatory, the track is an ode to extraterrestrial love, wrapped in an earworm chorus. Take a listen below.

Dutch quartet Mozes and The Firstborn rock with a 1970s vigor, and the video for their new cut “Peter JR.” proves it. Check out the video below, where the Amsterdam-based band hits the road, and makes a few new fans along the way. It’s a party, and they’re out to invite everyone.
This November, Ja Ja Ja is holding their integral music festival, featuring Under the Radar favorites Mew and Múm among others. At yesterday’s festival announcement, Lyrika—Björk’s all-female backing band was on-hand to perform. The ladies performed a melody of Mew songs, segueing from “The Zookeeper’s Boy” to an unreleased track due to be included on the Danish band’s next album. Take a listen below.
The early 90s are back—and they’ve never rocked more. Check out “Fractured” a track from guitar-loving Brooklyn trio Dead Stars. Flannels and long hair not required. Their new album High Gain streets June 4 via Uninhabitable Mansions.
