ALBUM ANNOUNCE // White Hinterland ‘Baby’ Out April 1st, 2014, Watch Lyric Video For First Single ‘Ring The Bell’





It has been four years since Kairos came out in 2010, and now Casey Dienel aka White Hinterland readies her newest album Baby for release on April 1st, 2014.

Recorded in a self-built studio inside her old family home in Scituate, MA, Casey removes herself from the sprawling atmospheric production of Kairos and hones her sound with focused, confident production and a present narrative. Baby is about facing your fears and making the most out of your situation, being bold and pushing forward past opposition. On the new record Casey says “the themes of this record to me are personal agency, strength, growth, determination…and to get those things is usually fucking terrifying and comes with casualties and loss.” Joining Casey on the new record includes acclaimed artists Sean Carey (Bon Iver, S. Carey), Neal Morgan (Joanna Newsom, Bill Callahan), and Cole Kamen-Green (BeyoncĂ©).

To preview the new album, listen to new song “Ring The Bell” on our Soundcloud or watch the truly inspired lyric video by Derrick Belcham above / on our YouTube page.

Pre-order the new album Baby via iTunes to get “Ring The Bell” instantly, SC Distribution for the limited edition clear/white marble vinyl (while supplies last) and tour poster, Amazon, and your local record store.

WATCH // Julianna Barwick Premieres “The Harbinger” Video, West Coast Tour Starts Friday

Julianna Barwick has had a busy Fall releasing her new album Nepenthe, opening for Sigur Ros on their North American tour, and playing the opening night party of Pitchfork Festival Paris just a few weeks ago.

Today, she releases the second music video from her debut album, Nepenthe, for the song “The Harbinger”. The video, made with her constant collaborator, director Derrick Belcham and premiered today on Pitchfork, beautifully captures the song’s celestial qualities and can be seen above or here on our Youtube channel.

On the video, director Belcham notes, “The video illustrates a moment in which an individual makes a sudden choice which they know will change their life forever, for better or worse, and the freedom that this affords them, liberating or oppressive. It is a non-linear illustration of catharsis.”

WATCH: New Video for The Luyas’ “Fifty Fifty”

The Luyas’ sophomore album, Animator, isn’t out until October 16, but you can enjoy their brand new video until then! Premiering today at Stereogum, the dramatic “Fifty Fifty” video was directed by Derrick Belcham and choreographed by Katie Ward. Watch above.

Watch the New Video for the Luyas’ “Moodslayer”

Premiering earlier today at BOOOOOOOM, the Luyas bring us a brand new video for “Moodslayer” from the album, Too Beautiful to Work. The song delves into the life of a friend dealing with schizophrenia. Director Derrick Belcham created the video to focus “on the dichotomy between the protagonist’s experience of the real and unreal within their psychological construct. They are thrown into a spectacular display of thought forms, settling on archetypes of peace from their youth, but, eventually, they are serenaded back into the unreal where a kind of comfort and control can be maintained.”

Featuring handmade paper animations and a variety of light sequences similar to those used in the Luyas’ live shows, it’s only appropriate the objects in the film are being turned by a record player. The video is a part of a growing artistic collaboration, deemed Schtuff, between the director, Ruby Kato Atwood and Luyas member, Jessie Stein. Enjoy!

The Luyas Release New Live Video by Vincent Moon and Derrick Belcham. Tour with the Dodos, Liam Finn, and Ra Ra Riot


Last October, The Luyas put together a multi-media experience at Pop Montreal. They transformed the space at Red Bird studios using lighting and sculpture into an entirely new psychedelic world to house their musical performance. Takeaway Show’s Vincent Moon and A Story Told Well’s Derrick Belcham captured the performance in the above video titled “Everything Is Outta Sight.” It is a visual and aural spectacle, a truly special moment preserved in this stunning video.

Following tour dates with Ra Ra Riot that lead to South by Southwest, the Luyas will meet up with Liam Finn on a tour that will take them across North America. After barely enough time to catch their breath, the Luyas leave for a month in Europe, including several weeks touring with the Dodos. Check out full tour dates after the jump.
