WATCH // Greylag Release New “Another” Video, Tour Dates With The Whigs, New Album Out October 14th

“‘Another’ is the first track on Greylag’s tremendously appealing self-titled debut (due out October 14), and it sets the tone for the record’s catchy and briskly strummed mini epics… the widescreen majesty of this music is decidedly rock.”
- Grantland

WATCH // Bear In Heaven “Autumn” Video Dir. By John Lee & Peter Burr, On Tour Now, New Album Out Worldwide

Fresh off the release of their new album Time Is Over One Day Old, Bear In Heaven is back with a beautiful digitally rendered new video that brings the trio into a new universe. Directed by John Lee & Peter Burr, with help from Carl Burton, the new video is a tripped out cinematic adventure providing a contrast to the realism of “Time Between”. You can watch the video above or on Youtube / Vevo.

In the directors’ words:
“digital tripscapes washing over our collective informational trash and squalor. Using 3DCG looped through distortion and some various what nutz, we tried to explore the space between the pixels; the pregnant pause of failure between the lub and dub of ones own heart.”

Get the new album now via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, your local record store.

Bear in Heaven continue their tour tonight in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at the Spanish Moon. See the rest of their dates below.

ALBUM STREAM // Watch + Listen To Bishop Allen’s Full ‘Lights Out’ Album In Video Series, Tour Starts Tonight In Boston

Bishop Allen’s new record Lights Out is now out worldwide on Dead Oceans as of yesterday. To celebrate their tour starting tonight in Boston, the band is sharing a unique and mesmerizing long form version of the “Why I Had To Go” video to accompany a stream of each album track. You can watch the full series of 12 videos in the above playlist (or here on YouTube) and see the band’s upcoming North American tour dates below.

Premiering via Dangerous Minds this morning, the video series was co-directed by Chad Smith (of Tempo Pictures) and Bishop Allen‘s Justin Rice. They invited their friends and neighbors in Kingston, NY to a theater that is currently being restored uptown and asked them to hula-hoop. They chose hula-hooping because it gave people something mesmerizing and all-consuming to focus on, which meant they weren’t self-conscious in front of the camera.  The goal was to capture natural expressions of innate personality, and to do it in slow motion.

Purchase new album Lights Out via SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, or your local record store.
