Order your copy fast >>> the first 300 copies are on translucent light blue vinyl!
Premiering today at Stereogum, the new video for Bill Fay’s “This World” features Super 8 film projected onto faces of people, a combination of both strangers to and friends of the director. Bill’s labelmate and long time fan, Califone’s Tim Rutili, directed the video, commenting, “thinking about making images for this music triggered faces and memory. It made me want to stare into a stranger’s eyes.” To add ease to the up-close filming, Rutili asked participants to talk about their very first childhood memory. You’ll notice a cameo of Jesus Lizard’s David Yow. Watch above.
Bill Fay’s Life Is People came out last week and has since received numerous rave reviews from fans and critics alike! Check it all out at Any Decent Music, who has compiled a great list for your reading pleasure. You can order your copy from SC Distribution!
Our sister label Secretly Canadian has raved about the Pumphouse Sessions from last year’s Pickathon Festival in Oregon already. Now, we over here at Dead Oceans get to sing their praises as well. Watch this lovely video that Califone recorded with the Pumphouse crew in a small shack situated deep in the woods at Pickathon 2011. The sessions were recorded by the very talented folks over at Live and Breathing, who would be worth your time to check out. Hopefully they’ll be back in action at Pickathon next summer.
