VICE Premieres New Holopaw Remix!  

Posted at 9:23 am

dirtyboots remix

Holopaw teamed up with Ape School (former Paw member Michael Johnson) for a remix of the celebrated song “Dirty Boots (He Don’t).” VICE premiered the (viral) video for “Dirty Boots” earlier this year and have followed-up by premiering the Apeschooled remix of the same track.

>>>> Head to the Misra store and pick up some Holopaw records!

VIA VICE:

“Misra Records has a history of dropping hot new shit to celebrate Pride Month. Exactly one year ago, the label released a split pink vinyl with indie rockers Holopaw and Sleeping States. This time around, in the spirit of rainbow flags, tiny speedos, strap-ons, and everything else that is holy, they’re dropping a remix of Holopaw’s ‘Dirty Boots (He Don’t)’ by Michael Johnson (Ape School and former Holopaw member). You remember “Dirty Boots (He Don’t)”? We premiered the music video right here on VICE.com. That video was so hot, even the straight dudes in the office were popping biker-induced boners. Michael’s remix of the original track, however, ups the ante with a smooth elixir of the drum machine and funky bass that gets the blood pumping to all the right places. Whether you’re gay, straight, bisexual, or even if you just love yourself (I see you, asexuals!) give the remix a listen and wave that sexually ambiguous flag proudly.”

Holopaw “Dirty Boots (He Don’t)” Video • VICE Premiere  

Posted at 12:19 pm

holopaw-vice

Holopaw’s brilliant video for “Dirty Boots (He Don’t)” premiered via VICE Magazine. We will be revisiting the Sleeping States / Holopaw split EP this June during LGBT Pride Month.

VIA VICE:

“The name Holopaw might not ring a bell for you if you’re a troglodyte with no taste. To fill your dumb ass in, the Gainesville, Florida–based band is fronted by queer indie rock veteran John Orth, who performed alongside Issac Brock of Modest Mouse in his weird-as-fuck side project, Ugly Casanova. Over the years, Holopaw has put out a bunch of dope releases. But their latest album, Academy Songs: Vol. 1, is especially weird and off-kilter and awesome.

For the video for the single “Dirty Boots,” the band teamed up with Brooklyn-based filmmaker Adam Baran to make a beautifully shot short. The video features narration by legendary and semi-reclusive 70s gay porn star Peter Berlin (Nights in Black LeatherThat Boy), and it stars Dominic J. Fournier, the man behind the many penis and butthole pictures on the ABeardedBoy Tumblr page. According to the press release, “the film celebrates the ever-evolving queer landscape of NYC, the historically iconic erotic archetype of the leather/biker gang, and the characters portrayed in the songs on Holopaw’s album.” For us, this video is the perfect excuse we need to 86 that creepy fluffer we hire for boner-focused fashion shoots, like this one. Who needs a gimp with no gag reflex when this video’s got enough crotch and butt shots to raise a homo chubby like a Caterpillar hammerhead construction crane?”

Holopaw on Deadspin  

Posted at 9:06 am

Holopaw-Band_Photo2

Holopaw were featured on Deadspin—the sports website owned by Gawker Media. The site slows down the recent OSU vs. NW game to a ridiculous speed and accompanies it with an older Holopaw track—one from their Sub Pop days.

The premise: strange sports moments are slowed down to ridiculous speeds and matched with indie music. Thanks to Timothy Burke and the fabulous folks at Deadspin!

Via Deadspin (Saturday, October 6):

“We’re not entirely sure how, but as of this writing Ohio State’s only put up one touchdown tonight—and they got it on a punt block that exhibited such dominance you wonder how they’re losing to Northwestern.

Regardless, this is a highlight at any level. We appreciate that ABC/ESPN used a proper camera to film this angle, and giving us the ability to slow it down to something truly stupid.”

This is a Deadspin Video, in which strange sports moments are slowed down to ridiculous speeds and matched with indie music. This video features “Shiver” by Holopaw.
