GOTYE, KIMBRA ( Crystal Ballroom , 1332 W Burnside) Read our article on Gotye . JAMES, THOMAS DOLBY, ELIZAVETA ( Roseland , 8 NW 6th) Hey,Â remember the tape you made with "She Blinded Me with Science" on it (track 1, side B)? Hey, remember hearing "Laid"Â on the radio and dubbing that over the same tape? Well, this is it for real: Thomas Dolby and James, inexplicably touring together. Like an awesome [...]
The electricity goes out in the home of new Angelino Hanni El Khatib just as he answers his telephone. “Can you call me back in five minutes?” he asks. “I want to figure this out.” El Khatib resolves his concern in four minutes – the power outage was building-wide, not just in his pad – and takes the initiative to call the writer himself. The temporary loss of cable aside, the San Francisco transplant’s life is in a good place right now. From recording his bluesy garage punk demos in a [...]
How's everybody doing? Let's get right to the first October installment of Weekly Roundup !
Want some blues-rockabilly revival? Check out the first album of Hanni El Khatib - "Will The Guns Come Out" due to October 3rd. Here, you have a look in the back mirror of your old Chevrolet, smelling the tires burning on the asphalt while skiming through the sinuous roads of the eternal youth.
Indie contender in waiting Hanni El Khatib new video for "Come Alive" a sexy tune with the romping guitars of Jon Spencer and the Jack White delivery, which should make El Khatib one to watch.
If you like loud, dirty, rock, you'll enjoy this. The video is killer (pun intended) Hanni was the lead designer for streetwear label HUF before leaving to pursue music. Enjoy.
Considering the song is called "Come Alive" it's pretty amusing that Hanni El Khatib ends up hanging out with a young troublemaking grim reaper and helps her get into even more michief. The video was shot by Wyatt Troll and co-produced by Milla Jovovich. If you look closely, you'll notice that tattoo legand Mark Mahoney makes an appearance in the video as well. "Come Alive" will be on Hanni's upcoming album, Will The Guns Come Out , which drops on September 27th. Hanni is playing out in the NYC area over the next few days. [...]
Check out the new video from Hanni El Khatib. "Come Alive" rocks, in the best way possible, and Odd Future has nothing on this little girl. The song comes from El Khatib's 9/27 release Will The Guns Come Out .
[mp3] Hanni El Khatib: "Dead Wrong" Been a fan of Hanni's since last year's SXSW. He's got this throwback 50's tattooed Outsiders look - with a sound that recalls The Black Lips played through a blues filter and laced with Jack White and rockabilly. We've had high hopes for Hanni - he's got the look - he's got the cool factor - he's got a great sound - and pulls it all off live; yet, we're not totally convinced on the songs yet. The new video above directed by Simon Cahn & Ricky Saiz [...]

Los Angeles' Hanni El Khatib would have caught our attention with this video for "Come Alive" based on the ballsy, bluesy track alone. But thanks to the craftiness of director Wyatt Troll and co-producer Milla Jovovich -- yes that Milla Jovovich -- the song takes on even more life in the above visuals. He enlisted what might be the most bad-ass lil' kid we've seen in a minute. The cloak-wearing child knocks food and drinks off tables on a patio, beats the crap out of a mascot, and murders some random dude. There's a reason she's so, um, [...]
Hanni El Khatib's scorched-earth take on vintage garage rock and blues is all about rage and danger — he claims his music is inspired by knife fights and train wrecks, after all — but Wyatt Troll's video for the song "Come Alive" (co-produced by Milla Jovovich) takes the subversive, wry route. Troll, who's done videos for the White Stripes, Patti Smith, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Ben Harper, among others, trails El Khatib and a young, not-so-grim reaper on a little rampage. That's the Shamrock Social Club's Mark Mahoney, getting a cameo. Khatib, whose July set at the [...]
