Do you suppose there was a timely strategy behind the release of Halloween, Alaska’s video for “Love Is Stronger Than Pride”? It is, after all, in keeping with the season! “Love Is Stronger Than Pride” features the gentlemen of Halloween, Alaska playing live in what appears to be an attic with a vaulted ceiling. Pretty straight forward stuff, but what’s up with the little dude in the wolfman outfit? Must be a shout-out to the season of the witch.
Rumor has it that one can pre-purchase a copy of Halloween, Alaska’s forthcoming Album #4 for $5 via their kickstarter page. Offer is good through Oct. 31. Sounds like a deal to me.
I’m no film expert, but the production of Peter Wolf Crier’s new video for “Down Down Down” appears plucked directly from the 60’s, sensu intro to the television show the Wonder Years. Nice song, and nice creative effort on the part of our friends at Northern Outpost. “Down Down Down” is off Peter Wolf Crier’s latest album Inter-Be, available on Jagjaguwar Records.
BNLX’s new video for “Just Got Paid” is chock-full of subliminal images meant to help you answer that weekly question (or bi-weekly question, as it were) of “I just got paid, what should I blow it on”? Should I blow it on a condo? Should I blow it on a bling-bling motorcycle? How about some cigaweed?
Aw screw it – think I’ll just go plundering failure with some Vikings.
Too funny! Earlier this week the Gimme Noise blog posted a new video from Jeremy Messersmith chronicling some of his most absurdly somnolent moments from his tour this past summer. Well, alright, perhaps he doesn’t look too sleepy in this footage, but there is a bed involved. (In fact, a lot of them!)
If there was ever any question as to whether a person could make a worthwhile music video using a simple camera phone – question answered. It can be done, and the music video is for “Lazy Bones.”
This week Roma di Luna coincidentally showed up on MPLS.TV‘s City of Music. Maybe it’s the song they performed, or maybe it’s Channy Moon Caselle’s voice, but somehow this installment of City of Music seems to be the most pleasantly sentimental yet. The song performed is “Starling,” with nothing fancy in the surroundings – just the atmosphere.
