Watch The Walkmen’s new video for their track “Heaven”, taken from the album of the same name, available now via Fat Possum and Bella Union. It’s a nostalgic affair, with archival footage from the very early days of the band growing up, mixed in with some studio and tour shots. Directed by Alex Southam.
Listen to a track from I Break Horses and the mysterious Philadelphia-based group CSLSX called “Violent Sea”. CSLSX’s blogspot suggests that there are more tracks to come from the collaboration. Can’t wait to hear them!
Father John Misty is the new solo Folk project from ex-Fleet Foxes member, J. Tillman. Noel Paul directed the video for lead single “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings”, featuring Parks and Recreation actress Aubrey Plaza and Alexi Wasser. The forthcoming album Fear Fun, is out on May 1 via Sub Pop and Bella Union.
The ever talented M. Ward is back with a new solo album, A Wasteland Companion, out on April 10 via Merge Records. Joel Trussell directed this cool animated video for “The First Time I Ran Away”, similar in style to the video he did for my favourite M. Ward track, “Chinese Translation”.
