WATCH // Night Beds Premiere Video for “Ramona”, Tour Europe & Festivals Through December

Night Beds have premiered the new video for their single off Country Sleep, “Ramona.” The video is directed by Abraham Vilchez-Moran, and tells the story of an emotional confrontation between a transgendered teenager and his drunk father.

Vilchez-Moran explains:

“The concept for ‘Ramona’ was birthed out of my aspiration to do something that would speak not only to the heart of the song’s lyrics but also to the feeling that it embodied…I was inspired to capture that raw energy in a story that would reflect what it means to be ‘Ramona’ and what it means to be ostracized for who you are.”

Watch the video ABOVE or on Vevo HERE. Read more for upcoming tour dates.

WATCH // Califone Debut Interactive Video for “Stitches” on Tumblr, Start Living Room Tour August 21st

In a unique approach to a music video, Califone worked with filmmaker Braden King and programmer Jeff Garneau using Tumblr to debut a beautiful and haunting interactive video of the new album’s title track “Stitches”. Garneau programmed the video to randomly pull images and animated GIFs from a previously selected set of Tumblr sites to provide a truly distinctive experience every time the viewer watches the video. Head over to Califone’s Tumblr HERE to find and experience the hidden video that Nate Auerbach, Tumblr’s Music Evangelist, calls, “deeper than an album jacket and more intense than a music video, because it is living and breathing.”

Read more about the video below with links to preorder the new album, Stitches, and upcoming tour dates.

Gauntlet Hair Releases Video for “Top Bunk”

 

When we first met Gauntlet Hair and were getting to know their likes and interests, one was a little more unusual than the rest: they collect Arnold Schwarzenegger movies on VHS. No one knows what the world record number of copies of Commando is, but we would imagine for that they are in the running. Their fascination with the Austrian Oak and the unintentional hilarity level of most of his films were the inspiration behind the “Top Bunk” video.

Directed by William Doyle of Neighborhood Watch, “Top Bunk” features many of Schwarzenegger’s films with sub characters that are iconic to his fans and also includes footage from a very rarely-seen trailer of The Terminator.

Gauntlet Hair just kicked off their winter tour in Bloomington, IN last night and will bring their super energetic live show to the east coast in the next week. Dates are here!
