Watch Phosphorescent Performance from Bonnaroo


Vevo documented Phosphorescent’s performance from Bonnaroo, and now we can relive the band’s ferocious performance. Watch five songs from the band’s set right here. Phosphorescent have just a few shows left in 2011, including a performance alongside My Morning Jacket and Neko Case at Tuscaloosa Amphitheater for a Tornado relief benefit on August 19. In September Phosphorescent will be visiting the Austin City Limits festival, while Matthew Houck has a special solo Phosphorescent set at End of the Road Festival in England.

Watch the New Video for Frog Eyes’ “The Sensitive Girls”

 

 
This afternoon Stereogum premiered the new, animated video for Frog Eyes’ “The Sensitive Girls” by London-based, Russian artist Marsha Balaeva. For Balaeva, “what attracted [her] most was the theme of urban gloom and despair, where everything you look at is palpably wrong and menacing, yet fascinating in some way.”

 

The animation itself is fully hand-drawn and is made from just under a thousand drawings in ink and pencils. This was the first animation project Balaeva has done in color. At the beginning of the collaboration, Carey Mercer outlined his vision of this song, a mixture of “street despair”, faux-religious imagery, and the dream of fleeing dark places. This loose outline gave her the main theme for the storyline. He also came up with the finishing sequence, when the bird is flying out into the light of a crystal pyramid.

The majority of the city backdrops are based on actual streets and buildings of Liverpool, Manchester and London. A lot of the characters and objects can be traced back to various religious cults and practices, like the dog with the pins. In Kongo, wooden figurines of dogs and men were used by ‘baganga’ (healers) to perform rituals, and if themagic was successful a nail was added to it, so the most powerful objects were studded with nails.

One of our favorite Canadian music channels, AUX.TV, recorded a great in-depth interview with Carey Mercer in which he discusses music, poetics, and where Frog Eyes fits in the artistic spectrum. The second video features an incredibly moving, acoustic version of “Violent Psalms.” Both videos are part of AUX.TV’s interview and performance series “What You See Is What You Get,” and you can see those and more here.

 

Califone Share “Better Angels” Video

better angels from Califone on Vimeo.

This video originally appeared as an extra on the DVD edition of the film All My Friends Are Funeral Singers. Using footage culled from film screenings and a live performance at the Mohawk at SXSW 2010, director Kevin Ford weaves together the surreal images of the film with a raucous set from the band. It feels like opium drenched dream sequence of the band and film blurring into one.
