After sharing debut single, “Animal,” which has an early West Coast punk viciousness unique to the Moon Duo catalog, the band is now presenting the video directed by and starring skateboarding legend Richie Jackson. As described by Ripley, “We loved Richie Jackson’s skate videos, the idea of a psychedelic skater, something outside of the norm. We contacted him and he had the idea of doing the world’s first skate video without a skateboard, and we were sold right there.”

Shadow of the Sun is available for pre-order now. iTunes’ pre-orders come with an instant download of “Animal,” which, in a nod to a great pop tradition, will also appear as the A-side of a 7-inch packaged with each copy of the vinyl edition and exist as the final track of the album on the CD and digital versions.

The New Pornographers

The official music video for The New Pornographers’ new single, “Dancehall Domine”  is meant to feel like a whole bunch of B-roll clips or film fragments sort of strung together as if they’re taken from some Italian or French musical.

Recording Sand + Silence involved a collaboration with Justin Vernon, spending a week in his Wisconsin studio to create what would become a new Rosebud era-the energy of which can be felt immensely in their new video for ‘Blue Eyes,’… the resulting sound is more hook-heavy tunes that brim with sheer joy and herald a welcome return for the North Carolina band.

Video – Parquet Courts : “Bodies Made Of” Live At Sugarhill Supper Club

ParquetCourts_byBenRayner3-copy

People may remember the epic record release show Parquet Courts staged at Bedford Stuyvesant’s Sugarhill Supper Club back in June. It was a sweaty, inebriated affair that reportedly led to 8 future weddings, 4 children being conceived, 3 breakups, and 1 animal attack (note: none of these reports have been substantiated or, furthermore, reported). Luckily for everyone who missed it, acclaimed directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard (known for the recent Nick Cave documentary, 20,000 Days on Earth) were there to capture the scene. Here’s a snippet of what they caught, which was edited into a video for the band’s Sugarhill performance of “Bodies,” one of the standout tracks on this year’s critically acclaimed album Sunbathing Animal (What’s Your Rupture?/Mom+Pop).

Sharon Van Etten is reaching the end of a two-month tour in support of new album, Are We There out now on Jagjaguwar and has a beautiful new video for “Our Love” directed by Karen Collins.  

As described by Sharon, “Working with Karen was a dream.  We sat together and talked about imagery and feeling and distance versus connection. Lightness versus darkness.  Referencing directors like Tarkovsky to articulate the beauty in the understatement and slowness. ‘Our Love’ is about someone acknowledging that having loved and letting it be over can be just as beautiful as being in love. It can also be a form of rebirth and renewal and inspiring and uplifting, even in the darkness and sadness.  I think Karen captured that really well.”

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.”
