When I say I love everything about ON AN ON’smusic video for their track, “The Hunter,” I mean everything.
From the abandoned setting, to the absolute recklessness caught on film, to the badass strut that our two long haired leads have..I dig it all. The climactic track lends well to the pyro stunts, actual ring of fire, and the obscene amount of head banging. It’s fucking fabulous.
Heard they recently killed it at the Gov’s Ball, be sure to check out the rest of their debut album, Give In.
Considering how many various factors go into recording live video and sound, I already give my props to Minneapolis-based The Farewell Circuit. But, their latest music video in a series of 4 is definitely worth noting.
“Oh My God,” proves to be the band’s most difficult video yet – having to shut down a downtown city street is no simple feat. The band succeeds with a calm Danny O’Brien on the keys performing a very smooth take while the production guys manage to edit this into something very nice. Watch above and be sure to stay tuned for the next two videos which should be rolling out soon.
And, if you haven’t given a listen to their last album release, In Our Bones, I highly recommend doing so.
Meet Observer Drift, a bedroom pop project based out of Minnesota who runs along the same vein as Teen Daze, Beach House, and even hints of Long Walks On The Beach. Music that feels nostalgic, reminiscent of childhood memories, and over-exposed pictures.
Sometimes with this particular genre it’s hard to break out of the dreamy electronic sound, songs becoming flat and sounding all the same. But, Collin Ward (Observer Drift) mixes it up quite a bit in his self-produced album, Corridors. I love the simple guitar in the track, “Letters To Myself,” and the introspective nature of the rest of the album.
Listen below, and name your price at his bandcamp site. Enjoy.
Unfortunately I’m pretty late on posting about this fantastic album but, that doesn’t mean it still isn’t worth a share.
These gentleman aren’t strangers on the blog, or in my iTunes library for that matter. They’re constantly making their way on many playlists of mine. I love The Farewell Circuit’s no frills type of indie-rock, what you hear is what you get and thankfully for us, it’s really god damn good.
Finding itself closer towards the conclusion of In Our Bones, my favorite track “Run For The Hills,” hits me hard with the opening guitar line. “Here today and gone tomorrow,” paints the lyrical picture while we’re lulled in slowly with minimal percussion. The track bursts at the seams and rips wide open after the two-minute mark. I could just listen on repeat.
Listen to In Our Bones and fall in love with these Minnesotans.
