New Video: Parts & Labor “Echo Chamber”

In January, Parts & Labor participated in the “Sequence of Waves” art happening where over 60 artists took over St. Cecilia’s Convent in Brooklyn, collaborating for a one-day multi-media event. For their part, Parts & Labor constructed a house where bands performed throughout the day. Using this back drop Parts & Labor teamed up with Nicholas Chatfield-Taylor to produce a new music video for “Echo Chamber” from their new album Constant Future, which we are happy to share with you today. Chatfield-Taylor previously worked with Parts & Labor on their video for “The Gold We’re Digging”. As the band plays a house builds and falls around them, eventually growing to encapsulate them.

 

Peter Wolf Crier Heatin’ Up The Greenhouse

Peter Wolf Crier knows that sometimes you gotta get creative growing crops in the northern climes of Duluth, MN. The band goes green for their North Shore Session, playing for the plant crowd and heating up a green house with “Untitled 101.” Sounds like it’ll be a good crop in Duluth this year!

Small Black Release New Video, Tour to South By Southwest

Check out the new video above for Small Black’s “Photojournalist” from their latest album New Chain. While filming the video, Small Black and director Yoonha Park, played with the idea of photo vs. memory. The band and director spent a full day shooting with one actress and followed up a few weeks later with a different actress, attempting to recreate the exact same shoot from memory without referring to the earlier footage.

In other news, Small Black is heading to South By Southwest this year, and will be playing dates with Cults, Sun Airway, and Toro Y Moi on their way to the festival. Check out the full tour dates after the jump.

Small Black: A Musical Tour of 5 Beekman

Years ago when I saw my first Takeaway Show video of Arcade Fire performing in an elevator I was utterly shocked and amazed. It took the concept of the music video to a whole new level, and it quickly ushered in a new paradigm for Internet music videos. Since then many have sought to capture the intimacy, artistry, and spontaneity of the Takeaway Show produced, unfortunately most have fallen short. Today I was made a believer again.

This morning Gothamist in partnership with the team at Foglight Films released a series of two videos recorded with Small Black at the abandoned building at 5 Beekman street, a building that has taken on legendary proportions in recent years in New York. Shot in the building’s five-story open air atrium caped by a gorgeous glass dome, the setting for this shoot is both mysterious and magical, not to mention acoustically mesmerizing. Filling this amazing space with sound, Small Black perform a perfectly stripped down version of “Camouflage” before retreating into the building’s interior to perform “Light Curse” while sitting in the round. View the first video above and check out the second after the jump.
