Video Hits:: The Golden Dogs, Adam & The Amethysts, Germany Germany

The Golden Dogs - Coat of ArmsIt’s not only Thursday, but it’s the Thursday before the Easter long weekend so I could understand if you were expecting some kind of Easter-themed edition of the Video Hits this week. That’s certainly not what you are getting, but I could understand why you might have been expecting that. Instead we’re taking you back to the roots of these Video Hits posts with 3 random selections that represent a sampling of the video-ified Canadian music goodness we get sent here at the hill.

 

I’m happy to report that The Golden Dogs recently released a new video from last year’s Coat of Arms, and happier still to post it up. I like Coat of Arms, but for some reason it never got a full posting dedicated to it here on the hill (I say “some reason”, but it’s likely that my disorganization was the culprit). The video is a stylized performance video for the Jessica Grassia-helmed “As You Long As You Like”, which is one of my favorite songs from the sunny, 60′s pop filled album, so check the vid below, and search out Coat of Arms if you don’t already have it.

 

When the Ack prefaces a post with the disclaimer “Please Sign This Band”, as he did last month for Montreal’s Adam & The Amethysts, you should prick up your ears and have a listen. Well Adam & Co. have released a video for “Prophecy”, so now you can enjoy this anthemic folk number accompanied by some rather fantastic 80′s footage depicting what appears to be some kind of wickan ceremony featuring punk girl skaters. Can’t beat that.

 

I’m fairly certain we’ve never posted anything from Victoria’s Germany Germany on the hill before, and since I always enjoy putting up a video two for folks that are new to us, we’ve got the clip for “Take Me Home”. It’s a catchy electronic track, which is matched fairly well by the clips from an independent German film, and so if you’d like to hear more from Germany Germany (aka Drew Harris), you can check for his record from Distorted Disco or check out his site. Enjoy the videos.
