Two awesome pieces from Lia Ices today! Premiering on Fader earlier this morning, the new video for “Little Marriage” is a whimsical dance through a bevy of faded images. Heidi Petty created the video.
Out on April 4th, the “Wish You Were Here” single is both a moving and refreshing take on one of Pink Floyd’s best known songs. Lia originally recorded the track for Mojo Magazine’s Pink Floyd tribute compilation. The 7-inch also features Lia’s take on Syd Barret’s “Late Night.” You can listen to “Wish You Were Here” below!
Lia Ices performed with her band in the UK at the Green Man Festival back in August, and they recorded a “Green Man Session” of her song “Daphne” that will really blow your socks off. The accompaniment is scaled back, letting Lia’s voice become the main instrument on stage. Lia Ices’s album Grown Unknown was named by Boston Globe‘s James Reed as his 9th favorite record of the year.
We are very happy to announce that Lia Ices/Jagjaguwar are pairing with IFC to announce a video contest surrounding her song “Love Is Won.” Lia’s video was shot by herself on Super 8 film while on vacation in Rome with her partner. It’s an intimate look at two people in love, and we thought it would be great to see other video directors interpret their own love stories.
We are inviting all filmmakers, artists, novices, experts, etc. to contribute their own video set to “Love Is Won.”
To take part in Lia Ices’ “Love Is Won” contest, send your video love stories to email@example.com. Apart from that, here’s a few key details you need to know:

This morning was the presentation of the Spring 2011 Electric Feathers collection at The Box at Lincoln Center. The runway show included a live musical element - Lia Ices performed vocals for two remixes of songs from her latest album, Grown Unknown, as well as modeled from the collection.
The remixes for the songs “New Myth” and “Grown Unknown” were produced by Tenderflex, the new project of DJ Logic (Mos Def, Medeski Martin and Wood) and producer David Maurice (Jay Z, Kerli).
