Woods Announce Tour Dates, Premieres Video for “Cali in a Cup”

Woods had a few tasty treats for us in store this week! Not on have they given us a slew of new tour dates, but they have also unleashed their infectious new video, “Cali in a Cup.” Directed by Adarsha Benjamin, the piece is the first video from the upcoming Bend Beyond. The video was shot at this year’s Woodsist Festival on a Super 8 Camera. The stunning vintage footage acts as the perfect canvas for the gorgeous track, which you won’t be able to stop watching. Trust me. Woods releases Bend Beyond on September 18th via Woodsist.

Ducktails Reveal Details About Upcoming Third Album

Ducktails, or Matthew Mondanile, also known as the guitarist for the band Real Estate, is releasing his third album and we have all the info about it right here for you. You can now circle the month of January 2011 if you’re interested in purchasing their upcoming full-length, Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics, which will be out on Woodsist Records. You can find the tracklist for the album at the end of this post. Fun fact: the album has a song called “Art Vandelay.” Even if you are not a Seinfeld fan, that is enough of a reason (almost) to check out the album when it comes out.

If that’s not enough evidence of cool for you, here’s a little excerpt to get your ears tingling, with the song “Hamilton Road:”

And if all of this makes you want to chase after everything Ducktails immediately, make sure to catch him on the few concerts he has booked this month. See them below.

Here are his upcoming concerts:

11/08 – Harajuku, Tokyo – Vacant

11/15 – Oberlin, OH – Oberlin College

New Wavves Video “No Hope Kids”

Fresh from the infamous ‘meltdown’, Wavves is back with a new video in tow. ‘No Hope Kids’  is a rather charming video actually.  No frills, just music. Some may say that Wavves is a bit overrated, but you have to dig deep to fully enjoy this band if it’s not your type of sound.

Directed by Pete Ohs (Fiery Furnaces, Arcade Fire, The Unicorns) the video is filled with clips of their European tour and their life on the road. A little bit of fresh air from camp Wavves.
