Watch Heat's debut video for 'Rooms'

Equal parts The Radio Dept., Jesus & Mary Chain and The Strokes, Montreal's Heat understand the power of delivery – that little things like a split-second burst of meticulously planned and raggedly executed guitar can make a good song suddenly become great. They're also pretty handy when it comes to Lou Reed-style vocal slurs and nagging melodies, marking them out as one of 2014's most promising new bands in my book. Here, we've got their debut video, for 'Rooms', which originally came out on their EP earlier this year. Stream the whole thing after the jump.

Watch NY Punks The So So Glos' New Video For 'Diss Town' - Premiere

Amid the 13 adrenaline-charged, scalpel-sharp dissections of 21st century America on Bay Ridge scrappers The So So Glos’ recent third album ‘Blowout’, ‘Diss Town’ is maybe the darkest – a wispy fog of dread rising from beneath its breezy Replacements-ish garage-punk guitars, like smoke from a drain. You won’t find a gang of prouder New Yorkers than the four-piece, made up of brothers Alex and Ryan Levine, half-brother Zach Staggers plus guitarist Matt Elkins, as anyone who follows the band on Twitter will tell you.

Liam Neeson Talks Playing A Private Eye In Moody Thriller 'A Walk Among The Tombstones' - Q&A

The former Jedi and star of Taken Liam Neeson plays private eye Matt Scudder in his latest thriller based on the detective novels by Lawrence Block. The actor spoke about the demands of doing fight scenes in his sixties at a Q&A following a special screening of the film in London. He's playing a tree in his next movie but don't laugh, or he will "find you". A Walk Among the Tombstones is a cracking old school '70s-style thriller.

Premiere - Boston Trio Krill Debut Killer New Track 'Peanut Butter'

Krill are a trio of Boston goofs whose nervous, wiry grunge treads a tightrope walk between screwball hilarity and moments of devastating melancholy - for every lyric about feeling “like a turd spinning in flushing water” (‘Turd') there’s a line like the one at the bruised, twitching heart of ‘Fresh Pond’, squawked nasally over scrappy Built To Spill guitars: “when I go home, I look out the window but all I see sometimes is the window pane.” New track 'Peanut Butter' carries on where the slacker-rock rough and tumble of December's 'Steve Hears Pile In Malden And Bursts Into Tears' EP left off,
