*[filtermagazine.com] A day in the life of a Japanese school girl seems pretty awesome, at least in The Depreciation Guild's video for "My Chariot" it does. The shoegazey trio decided to just go simple by shooting a video in Tokyo featuring a pair of school girls frolicking around the city and just having a grand ol' time while the sweet sounding beats and light hearted vocals of the tune are pumping through your speakers. "My Chariot" is from The Depreciation Guild's Spirit Youth which is out now.

*A few weeks ago, major storms in Chicago caused flooding in some areas, and the Logan Square-based indie Graveface Records (which just so happened to release Dreamend's new album So I Ate Myself Bite by Bite) was hit hard. A large percentage of its stock was ruined without insurance coverage. So to make up some of the difference, Graveface is asking for donations and holding a raffle. Read more about the fundraiser HERE!! Graveface is owned by Ryan Graveface (Dreamend) and the label home of band's such as The Appleseed Cast and Black Moth Super Rainbow.
