Try Not to Have a Seizure While Watching Bear in Heaven’s Video For “The Reflection of You”

Holy bananas. Bear in Heaven recently snagged PFFR LTD, the famed art collective behind Wonder Showzen, Xavier: Renegade Angel and The Heart, She Holler, to direct this trippy, seizure-inducing video of “The Reflection of You.” The video, which premiered this morning over on Vice’s music channel Noisey, is a sweet mixture of zoom shots, dancing dudes and neon lights. Might be best to sit down while you enjoy this one. Bear in Heaven hit the road next week for a massive US tour (including appearances at SXSW), followed by a string of EU/UK dates.

The Luyas Visit Daytrotter, Tour with the Dodos

At SXSW this past March, the Luyas visited Big Orange Studios in Austin, and recorded a Daytrotter session. Listen to the band’s fiery take on “Spherical Mattress” from Too Beautiful To Work, along with three others here. Get over to Daytrotter and put this one on repeat, it’s perfect.

The Luyas embark on another long tour in just a few weeks. They’re joining the Dodos once again, this time in North America. We can’t wait to see them onstage together — a little Doyas magic happens when they join forces onstage every night. Check out the full list of shows here. We will have more European dates for the Luyas very soon, stay tuned.
