Grandchildren Debut New Video

To celebrate the release of their latest full length, Grandchildren had Toronto director Chelsea McMullan oversee their first music video, “Saturn Returns.”

Now, two years later, Chelsea has returned to help the band re-envision their superb first single. The video (more like a short film) “Saturn Returns Part II” features the underlying message that both nature and technology want to you dead (or something). It’s not the most cheerful, but damn does it look cool.

You can see it right here.

Good Old War To Tour With Dr. Dog, Joshua Radin


Good Old War, one of the fastest up-and-coming bands on the planet, will keep to the road this fall. The band announced a bunch of supporting tour stops, with the red-hot band Dr. Dog, maestro Joshua Radin and tour mainstays Dashboard Confessional.

If you haven’t heard these guys yet, you’ve run out of excuses. Their self-titled debut has recently been picked to be part of iTunes’ Discovery Download program, which means it’s on iTunes right now…for less than ten bucks (their single “That’s Some Dream” is free).

Here is Good Old War’s first single from the album, “That’s Some Dream.” The video was shot on tour, because these guys are so busy they can’t stop to film a music video.

Violens Premiere New Video, Announce New Tour Dates

violens

New York group Violens (sic) just premiered their first single off of their upcoming album Amoral.

The song is called “Acid Reign (In Trees Mix)” and the video features Caroline Polacheck of Chairlift directing.

Here’s what she said about the video.

“The R&B version of “Acid Reign” is so deep (the way kids say “deep” in middle school), almost too close and lush for comfort. Jorge is from Miami, so when I heard the song, I imagined a Miami heartbreaker-alter-ego in passionate, solitary mourning.”

You can get a looksee at the new video right here.
