Video Hits:: New Pornographers, Kae Sun & Classified

It’s Thursday, or as we like to call it here on the hill, Video Hits day. As always, we try and pull together an eclectic sampling of the Canadian-related video content we’re sent, and I think we’ve done a pretty good job this week.

 

As you likely know, the New Pornographers are back with a new album, Together, which impressed the Ack a great deal, and after hearing for myself for the first time last week, I certainly agree with him. So then, how about a Kar-a-te themed video for the anthemic Your Hands (Together)? Done deal. I’ve gone on record with my appreciation for the kind of records the folks at Urbnet put out, but they also do some great videos too, and the quirky clip for Kae Sun’s On The Lookout is no exception. Kae’s Lion On A Leash is a pretty solid record too I might add, so I’d suggest checking it out.

 

Classified is one of the hardest working musicians in the country, regardless of genre, and so we’re always down to post whatever it is he’s working on. In this case, we were sent a live video of Class doing his beat-making instructional jam Beatin It during a hometown Halifax show last summer. I liked the concept of the song when I first listened to Hitch Hikin’ Music, and I think this video version of it is great. Finally, we’re happy to close with a video that hopes to do some good. It’s a remake of Simple Minds Promised You A Miracle done by Simple Minds’s Jim Kerr and Martha Wainwright to raise awareness for At The Table, which is a coalition of the world’s strongest & most progressive NGOs. Specifically, the video is meant to bring attention on the call for improved medical care throughout the world for pregnant women, and considering the Ack and I are now both husbands and fathers, this seems like an excellent cause to us. Please check it out and enjoy the vids.
