NURSES, New Video, Tour with The Mountain Goats

When Nurses were in New York City this fall, they filmed a session with Hooves on the Turf, who captured stunning stripped down renditions of “New Feelings” and “Trying to Reach You.” The essence of the band’s unique approach to songcraft really shines in this clip.

Following a New Year’s Eve show at Mississippi Studios in their hometown of Portland, OR Nurses will head for warmer pastures touring with The Mountain Goats at shows throughout the southern United States. Check out the tour dates right HERE.

A$AP Rocky rhymes over Nurses on Pitchfork Selector

Watch A$AP Rocky & his crew rap over a beat sampled from Nurses’ “You Lookin’ Twice” in a laser tag video arcade called Funtopia. What more could you possibly want? It’s not every day you get a Ma$e shout out.

NURSES Live in Austin- The Kiyanna Project

Nurses – New Feelings – Kiyanna Project from Kiyanna Project on Vimeo.

While Nurses were touring through Austin, TX earlier this summer they met up with the fine folks from The Kiyanna Project and shot the above video. Nurses perform “New Feelings” from their latest album Dracula on an old railroad bridge. The results are lovely to say the least.

 

Nurses Dracula out today

Nurses’ Dracula is out on Dead Oceans today! You can get the album right here. You can also stream the whole thing on AOL Spinner’s Listening Party this week. And be sure to check out a pair of interviews with Aaron at Blackbook Magazine and The Oregonian. Blackbook says, “More than sucked blood, though, Dracula seems the result of a bled out psyche…spooky and melancholic, with cryptic atmospherics and languid funk undercurrents.” The Oregonian points out that on Dracula, “when the lower frequencies kick in, its cape of seductive darkness unfurls.”

Nurses have a series of instores today to celebrate the release, then kick off their fall tour at Holocene on Thursday. A full list of tour dates is available here. Join them in your town for some Fever Dreamin‘.

Nurses Premiere “Fever Dreams” Video, Album Stream for Dracula

Nurses have debuted the video for “Fever Dreams” on Pitchfork TV. The band followed a natural progression in making the video saying, “The song seemed to have a definite Face to it, and these images — of a face progressively growing in detail, floating, flashing, dancing, not being anywhere/being everywhere — they stuck with us for a while and it became clear that was the universe where the song existed, and that’s the character who sings it.” The dark dreamy visuals both mimic and enhance the song’s woozy appeal.

Dracula is also streaming right now in its entirety at Yours Tru.ly with a unique piece of art from band member James Mitchell. The band has also put together a curated “Live Music Show” for the site Network Awesome full of groovy live performances. Dracula will be released September 20 on Dead Oceans and is available now for pre-order with an instant download of the full album.
