Peter Wolf Crier has once again teamed up with the visionaires at Northern Outpost, putting together a new video for“Down Down Down.” After collaborating with Peter Wolf Crier on the “Hard As Nails” video earlier this year, Northern Outpost once again finds the maximal effect in minimal elements for “Down Down Down.” Incorporating simple black and white lighting and a scrolling film reel effect, this video captures the fluid, but heavy feel of the song.
Coming into the home stretch of 2010, Peter Wolf Crier are still going strong. Right on the heels of a great tour with Midlake and Rogue Wave, Peter Wolf Crier will start their fall tour with Dawes and on some dates Vetiver. From there they’ll finish out the year with their first tour of the UK. Full tour dates after the jump.
If you weren’t afraid of the dentist before, now you will be! In Julie Doiron’s new video for “Consolation Prize,” Fred Squire plays the frightening dentist pointing sharp objects at Julie Doiron’s gums. Luckily, Doiron manages to escape the dentist chair by fending him off with a novelty-sized toothbrush, but not before losing a very magical tooth! The best music video to incorporate dental hygiene, ever.
We are proud to announce a second free mp3 from Doiron’s lo-fi masterpiece I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day, the melodic and optimistic “When Brakes Get Wet.” Download HERE.
Jagjaguwar has long known that Julie Doiron is a Canadian National Treasure, but here is proof: June 7th in Bruno, Saskatchewan was declared Julie Doiron Day. The mayor presented her name on a bench, and we are so happy that someone was there to film it.
We have a great video of Doiron performing a solo set at Bob Boilen’s desk for a “Tiny Desk Concert” and the staff of National Public Radio. Musicians who want to rock NPR’s office have to turn down their amps, and luckily Julie can offer a killer performance at low volumes. Watch (and embed) her Tiny Desk Concert at NPR.
Back in March at SXSW, Julie Doiron and Fred Squire met our friends from the Quad Cities and recorded a Daytrotter session. We encouraged them to rock out as hard as they could for as early in the morning as it was. Results: tremendous. Download it HERE.
Doiron will be performing with in Eric’s Trip, with her own band, and with Mt. Eerie at this year’s Sappy Fest in Sackville, NB. Lucky Canucks and Brits can find the tour dates HERE.
The Besnard Lakes have finished a new video for the track “Devastation” from the album “The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse”. The album, released in February of 2007, continues to spawn new and inspired content, and we couldn’t be happier. Kara Blake, who also directed the video for “Agent 13”, once again blows our minds. Enjoy!
Jagjaguwar is excited to share PARTS & LABOR’s latest video with the world! Made for ‘The Gold We’re Digging’ from “Mapmaker,” released last May, this visual roller-coaster-ride artfully complements the band’s supersonic rock propulsions. This is what P&L had to say about it:
“At long last, our video for ‘The Gold We’re Digging’ sees the light of day. It was directed and edited by Nicholas Chatfield-Taylor. I can’t say enough good things about the work he’s done, the video came out even better than I anticipated. Thanks Nick!”
They also describe the meticulous shooting plan: “We did well over 400 takes total over the course of two days of shooting (34+ hours). We divided the song up into sections, each section had different camera placements. We’d set up a “frame” of the background and play in front of it for however long the animation was to play for, which for the solid colors was the entire song.”
Stereogum.com was psyched to post this video exclusively yesterday and today. Now you can also check it out here.
