Video Hits:: The Acorn, Kathryn Calder, Eamon McGrath

The Acorn

It’s a scorching hot Thursday here in Halifax as we’ve been sweating it out all week, both literally due to the semi-heatwave we’ve been having all week, and figuratively as we await the arrival of hurricane Earl this weekend. Well then, time to focus on something else for a few minutes I’d say, so let’s make with the Video Hits shall we?

 

Leading off we have the first video from The Acorn’s rather anticipated new album No Ghost. Restoration is a psychedelic stop-motion affair that finds the band having a BBQ in the great outdoors before going on a trippy picnic table ride through the woods. The video for Kathryn Calder’s Slip Away is kind of trippy, but really much more on the sweet side of things, as homemade rabbits tell a tale of alien abduction. Sweet certainly isn’t a word I’d use to describe the stop-motion video for Eamon McGrath’s Dark Side of the Street, but the somewhat jarring tone of the video matches the song quite well.

 

To finish things off, we’ll post some live footage of Halifax heroes Wintersleep doing Preservation from their latest release New Inheritors. Enjoy.
