Captain’s Dead debuted a new video for Holopaw’s “Golden Years” off of their 2013 Misra release, Academy Songs, Volume I. Keeping it in the family, the video is produced, directed and animated by former Holopaw keyboardist Beachwolf.
According to Paw, “Beachwolf is fueled by a lifetime of limited means and limitless ideas. Schooled in American DIY traditions, he uses common consumer tools to create childlike visions rooted as much in American lore as they are in alien conspiracy theory. Southern pride, northern claustrophobia, lights in the skies and nostalgic sadness all hold equal sway in Beachwolf’s oddly endearing stop motion universe.”
Boston sons Hallelujah the Hills have released a new single – “The Three Minute Mark” b/w “Meet Me In The Car.” While Misra did not release these two songs (they are self-released), the label did release HtH’s debut and sophomore albums – Collective Psychosis Begone and Colonial Drones, respectively. We are supporters of HtH. Also, dig this piece Captain’s Dead did on Hallelujah the Hills and the new single. Thanks to Greg and CD for all their support! Lastly, go see HtH live this week:
2/21 >> Cambridge, MA >> Oberon
2/22 >> Arlington, VA >> IOTA
2/23 >> Kennett Square, PA >> Kennett Flash
2/24 >> Brooklyn, NY >> The Rock Shop
Great Praise continues to roll in for Southeast Engine, including a phenomenal piece by Andrew Gilstrap of PopMatters called “Fear and Hope in the Great Depression,” as well as a beautiful acoustic video of “Ruthie” (off SEE’s Canary). The video was filmed live at Pickathon by the kindhearted badasses of KEXP in Seattle and The PopMatters article addresses the themes of both Canary (2011) and its companion EP Canaanville (2012).
In addition, the band had some wonderful new photos taken by the wildly talented Alison Vagnini while they were touring through Denver, CO on their way to Pickathon 2012. The first is up there for all to see.
