Califone released their newest record, Stitches, last year and we have already seen multiple cinematic videos for tracks “Frosted Tips”, “Bells Break Arms”, “We are a Payphone”, and “Movie Music Kills a Kiss”. Today, Califone shares a new stop-motion video for ““Magdalene” directed and animated by Jessie Stein (of The Luyas) and Amanda Bonaiuto.
Bonaiuto describes the setting for “Magdalene”:
“There is a woman who lives on a lake. She is always there in her boat where she stares up, and only up at the stars. The stars are her sole friends and her only fascination. She has never noticed the merman who lives in the lake and probably never will. A watery scene filled with empty wine bottles and colorful hair gives us a view of their world”
Califone continues their tour with living room shows starting April 20th in Hadley, Massachusetts.
If you’ve missed The Luyas we have a double gift for you today. First, we’re psyched to share a mezmerizing Paper Bag Records Session with The Luyas performing “Montuno” from their 2012 album Animator. Watch the session above or here on YouTube.
Secondly, the band started their tour with Califone last night in Lost Angeles and head up the West Coast in the US before playing handful of dates in Canada. See all tour dates below.
