Here is a quick snapshot of what looks like the video shoot to Icky Blossoms' new music video. We're all anticipating a weird and wild product loaded with tons of fun. Stay on the lookout, folks.

So Saddle Creek bands are what you fancy this year at SXSW, you say? Not sure when and where they’re playing, you ask? You’re in luck, because there is a Facebook page that coordinated all the bands, set times and locations for everything Saddle Creek, so stay updated here.

Local filmmaker and musician Nick Fackler took a crew and a few cameras to Ebando Village in Gabon, Africa. There, Fackler would live amongst the local villagers, study the cultures’ ways of religion and spiritual healing, and indulge on a customary, insanely hallucinogenic plant called iboga. Evidently the plant can somehow overcome addictions and illnesses, but it sounds like a vicious two-day escapade that I personally could not justify paying the ticket to ride.
Nonetheless, I am very curious about how Fackler’s latest film, Sick Birds Die Easy, will turn out. To learn more about Fackler’s experience, read the interview with Fackler here.

She’s a lewd, crude, rude… misguided dude. She also has a huge herp on her upper lip. Herpe Betty is a new webseries created by Harrison Martin and Michelle Murphy that follows the tale of a young, haphazard spinster on her quest for primordial love. The inaugural episode of the series features cast members from Omaha bands such as Tilly and the Wall, The Faint, Icky Blossoms, Capgun Coup and STDZ. Hop on over to the site to read the interview with Murphy and Martin and see the episode here.

Staking the claim as the newest addition to the Saddle Creek Records family, Icky Blossoms have set out to embark on recording their debut album in L.A.

Check out the Ingrained video here.

Holy hell.  Who the hell knew that a band infiltrating a pseudo-retro rollerskating rink in east Omaha could make a video as haunting as this?  Local Omaha new-groove electro-dance indie rockers Icky Blossoms don’t sell their shit short by providing a dark take on what it was like to share the “love song” on the rink back in the days when it was sociable to ask your “crush” to share a skate to your favorite tune on waxed wood.  Icky Blossom’s new track “Villages” is as fitting as the video makes it out to be.  Check out the new video that every rad dad in town is talking about by clicking right here!
