WATCH // White Hinterland Shares New “Baby” Video, On Tour Now With S. Carey

Today VEVO premiered the new cinematic video for title track “Baby” off the new White Hinterland album. Directed by Anna Rose Holmerthe video was shot in Casey’s hometown in southeastern Massachusetts. Watch the video above or here on Casey’s YouTube channel.

Casey writes, “I was drawn to Anna’s treatment because she puts a lot of heart into her work, and ‘Baby’ feels like the most raw and delicate of all the songs on the album … whatever we did had to be especially personal. I wanted us to shoot it in my hometown because I think it’s beautiful here. It feels like a visual love letter to the Scituate that I grew up in.”

Get the new album Baby via iTunes, SC Distribution, Amazon, and your local record store.

WATCH // Strand of Oaks Shares New “Goshen ’97″ Video Dir. By Rick Alverson, New Album ‘HEAL’ Out June 24th

Strand of Oaks shared the first single “Goshen ’97″ from upcoming album HEAL at the beginning of the month with praise from Stereogum calling it a “rocket-fueled nostalgia trip” and Pitchfork writing the song was “raw and reckless”. Today THE FADER premiered a new video for the track by director Rick Alverson [director of The Comedy] which puts Tim Showalter of Strand of Oaks in the main role. Watch the new video above, on THE FADER‘s website, or on our YouTube channel here.

On the video and director Alverson, Tim writes:

“It had been a dream of mine to work with Rick Alverson…[he] is a master of blending tragedy, humor, and catharsis, and that’s exactly what the song is about. It doesn’t celebrate the huge victories in life or mourn the heaviest memories. It’s about the moments between the ups and downs, where I believe we spend most of our lives. The days that aren’t shitty or particularly great, when you realize you’re one day farther from being young and you’re only getting older. Sometimes things so simple can be the most tragic.”

See Tim with a full band celebrating the new album’s release on June 26th at the Mercury Lounge in NYC. Get tickets here.

Pre-order the new album HEAL via iTunes, Amazon, SC Distribution, and your local record store.

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.”
