Watch Gauntlet Hair’s New Video for “Keep Time”


We have a brand new music video for Gauntlet Hair’s “Keep Time” that premiered today at SPIN.com. Directed and produced by Bernardo Pantoja and Skyler Stevenson for Wooden Lens, the video features mirror-eyed ghouls that come to live at night. The ghouls are hunted by another entity and prowl the streets (shot in SE industrial-sector Portland). The goal for Wooden Lens was to “echo the beautiful texture and disturbing tone” of the song, and color me disturbed – this video is so scary and cool!

Gauntlet Hair was a huge critical highlight of CMJ 2011, praised by PopMatters, Pretty Much Amazing, Brooklyn Vegan, and Stereogum. After the jump, watch two live videos of Gauntlet Hair performing at The Fader Fort.

New Video “Love is All” from The Tallest Man on Earth

The new video for “Love is All” (from the album The Wild Hunt), features vintage Super 8 footage compiled by director Johan Stolpe. So often The Tallest Man on Earth’s music is said to be informed by the American landscape, but to watch the video for “Love is All” is to look into those preconceptions and have the images display another side of Kristian Matsson’s origin.

I love the lyrics for this song, so I’m posting them after the break! Read the rest of this entry »

Sun Airway’s New Music Video for “Put the Days Away,” Album Pre-Order and CMJ Live Performances

Dead Oceans would like to present the official music video for Sun Airway’s “Put the Days Away,” directed by Ricardo Rivera of KLIP Collective.

Night has fallen upon Philadelphia, and our heroine is making her way through the streets on her bicycle. Something is wrong, and the sight of happy couples are certainly not helping. She arrives home, soaked from the rain and begins to put the day away. Her unconscious mind becomes animated for us, a gorgeous combination of visual projections previously seen for Sun Airway’s “Oh, Naoko,” “Infinity,” and “Waiting On You.”

Sun Airway’s upcoming album, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier, will be released on October 26th in North America and is now available for pre-order at SC Distribution. All pre-orders include an instant MP3 download of the entire album.

Sun Airway will be performing several parties and showcases at the CMJ Festival in New York next week.  Check out the times and venues after the jump!
