Columbus Alive! premiered The Black Swans’ video for “Where Are You Tonight?” – track 7 from Occasion for Song (Misra; 2012). The wonderfully hilarious video features Billy “The Columbus King” Cash and embodies the lovable, melancholic characteristics of one of the greatest bands around today. Enjoy!
The Black Swans’ video for “Mask from Memory” debuted on American Songwriter today. Via AS:
“Indie-folk outfit The Black Swans’ latest album Occasion for Song is tinged with the grief of the passing of founding member Noel Sayre. Watch the striking video for the album track “Mask From Memory.”
‘The song is story of process and dreams …. imagining yourself creating a mask of your friend that died to see things through his eyes,’ vocalist/guitarist Jerry DeCicca tells American Songwriter. ‘The mask is the memory you see the world through; the construction is the song’s metaphor for engaging your own thoughts and feelings in hopes of learning something about yourself.’”
Last year, Misra donated some of our Will Johnson & Centro-matic stock to WJ’s efforts in aiding Bastrop County fire victims. To note: credit should be given to Will, not Misra, for this great thought and effort. Alas, we were very happy to help in the cause.
Pulled from Paste Magazine‘s website:
To memorialize the victims, Denton-based rockers Centro-matic filmed a video for their song “Against the Line” amongst some of the fire’s debris. The video is meant to highlight the devastation the fire caused, but also to bring hope—it features a group of children cleaning up debris from a charred forest.
Centro-matic’s Will Johnson explains:
“The 2011 Bastrop County fires affected thousands of people, homes, pets and wildlife in an area very dear to my family and many of our friends. My wife, step-son and I lived out there for a time, and the Lost Pines State Park quickly became our common weekend destination; a place of sanctuary and inspiration. Our band held a couple of fundraisers in the aftermath of these devastating fires, but found that we also wanted to pay tribute in a more creative way. This video is our means of tribute to the area, its people, and the rebuilding efforts and signs of new life that are taking place in Bastrop County.”
