Here’s what SPIN had to say about The Amazing’s video for “Picture You”:
"Swedish supergroup the Amazing have a picturesque new clip out for the title track from their forthcoming record, Picture You. Clocking in at nine full minutes, the black-and-white video, which comes directed courtesy of Shilling & Shilling, depicts an attractive woman (played by actress Tamsin Topolski) ambling through a series of city streets. Speaking tothe Fader about the visuals, frontman Christoffer Gunrup said, "It’s about when dreams become nightmares. Wonderful feeling."

The internet is a beautiful place:
E.g. We invite you to head over to Stereogum to listen to an un-interrupted session full of manic shoegazey hard rock-bliss, pretty much the most authentic sounding alt-90s rock we’ve hear since the time the genre was coined.
Guilty by Dirty Dishes in its entirety, streaming.
The record is available to buy and love on 1/27 via Exploding in Sound Records, and is hitting college radio next month!

"Picture You," the title track off of The Amazing’s record set to release 2/17 on Partisan Records, is a bit of a long player, clocking in at 9 minutes and 35 seconds. And for each moment of its duration, music director Shilling & Shilling pairs up a stunning B&W backdrop to this catchy yet chilling track. See above for confirmation and admiration for it’s simplicity and dramatic appeal via the Stereogum feed.

We, at Distiller, are not the only ones jazzed about Diamond Rugs’ new album - Cosmetics was named #4 on Paste Magazine’s “30 Albums We’re Looking Forward to in 2015”!
"Diamond Rugs—the gritty rock’n’roll outfit that includes members of Deer Tick, Black Lips, Dead Confederate and Los Lobos—wasn’t a one-album kinda supergroup. They’ll make it official this February with Cosmetics, an 11-track follow-up to their 2012 self-titled debut. The album includes tracks named “So What,” “Motel Room” and “Blame,” so even if frontman John McCauley seems to have settled down, his tunes have not." - PASTE
