Video Hits:: Wintersleep, Dog Day & Boxer The Horse

Normally Thursday is video day here on the hill, and although I did get this up yesterday, it’s a sweet, All-Maritime music edition, so I thought I’d brighten your Friday with it. I hope you don’t mind.

 

Like many other folks, I was a pretty big fan of Wintersleep’s last album, Welcome To The Night Sky, and because it (and Weighty Ghost) did so well for the band, their latest release New Inheritors was, as they say in the biz, highly anticipated. Although the first single released from the album, the title track, was a bit of a lighter sound for the band, this performance video for Black Camera is nice and loud. I’m looking forward to hearing the full album.

 

I think we’ve actually posted Dog Day’s Rome, from their sophomore album Concentration, about 5 times or so in various posts about the band, so it’s good to finally get to post it with a video. And what a video it is. Directed by front man Seth Smith, it follows the dream-like aftermath of bassist Nancy Urich‘s car crash - there’s tiny houses, creepy characters, and plenty of fire. It has to be one of the best DIY videos I have ever seen, so have a look for yourself.

 

To finish things up, we’ll finish with a brief blast of exuberance from young P.E.Islanders Boxer The Horse. The band has their debut full-length coming out next month and I think plenty of folks in this part of the world are expecting it to do big things. Bad Apples is certainly an excellent start, as is Mary Meets The Pilot, which you can check out below. Enjoy.
