WATCH // The Luyas Perform “Talking Mountain” for Out of Town Films

The Luyas met with Philadelphia’s Out Of Town Films during CMJ for one of their many live sessions. Filmed in the basement of an old loft somewhere in Greenpoint, the video features The Luyas performing “Talking Mountain.” It is a track off their recently released album, Animator.

You can also check out the audio from The Luyas’ live CMJ session at the Fred Perry Artist Lounge / Stratosphere Sound Recording Studios. InSound has an exclusive download – you’ll find it HERE.

WATCH // Sun Airway Performs “Close” Live, Win Two Tickets to M For Montreal Show

Sun Airway released their sophomore album, Soft Fall, in early October. They kicked things off with a record release show at one of Philadelphia’s awesome Making Time parties. BITBY.TV was there to catch it all, including the ridiculously cool light show. Watch SA perform “Close” above.

Jon Barthmus and NAM’s Takayuki Nakazawa sat down with Redefine Magazine to talk about the Soft Fall artwork and the experience of working together. Read the interview HERE.

“My first idea was that instead of using natural light as we did in our previous work, it would be better to create an even more realistic visual. I thought it would be interesting to organize a scene with a picturesque arrangement of vegetation, tableware, and glassware. Similar to how Millais depicted Ophelia1… We also added just a little erotic element as a sort of secret ingredient. I thought these things would bring some depth to the fantasy-like world we were creating.” Takayuki Nakazawa

REMINDER: Sun Airway head to M for Montreal on November 16! They’ll perform with SUUNS, Memoryhouse and D’eon. You can win two tickets to the show on our Facebook. Additional dates listed HERE.

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!
