Video – Avec Sans : Hold On + Left-Field Remix

Avec Sans are soon to be releasing new single “Shiver”. In the meantime check out the remix they did of last single “Hold On”. It’s the first time we’ve seen an original video re-envisioned to fit a remix. Both videos are by Chief Productions and Sing J Lee (Pins/Chvrches director) and both the original and the stuttering, left-field remix are audio/visual feasts.

Video – Small Black : Breathless

Small Black have premiered their new video for “Breathless” today via VEVO’s Indie Wednesday. Directed by Nick Bentgen, the video is a last burst of summer road trip before the weather turns. The strikingly intimate, yet disjointed images run together in a rush of nostalgia. Kolenik says the song itself is about “feeling free of your own body with the ability to look down at yourself and evaluate.”
There is also a live version of the video, commissioned by Stillwater Artisanal, the brewery that created Small Black’s namesake beer. Filmed at 285 Kent in Brooklyn and Ovvio Arte in Nashville, with live recording from 285 Kent and footage from Ian Perlman, the video takes you inside Small Black’s energetic & entrancing live show.
Small Black released their latest record, Limits of Desire, earlier this year and it has garnered glowing reviews and support from varied corners. Pitchfork called lead track “Free At Dawn” “Simultaneously understated and anthemic” and says “[Small Black] are absolutely going for it.” Stereogum praised the album as “lush and widescreen” and Other Music said, “it’s as if the rainbow colors are now being refracted through a flawlessly cut diamond.”

New Track – Dr. Dog : Love
