Video Hits:: Shotgun Jimmie, Mother Mother, PS I Love You

Doing these Video Hits posts can be knid of strange, some weeks I can hardly scramble together 3 decent videos, and others we find ourselves overrun with quality clips to put up. Well our clip cup runneth over this week, as there’s been plenty of solid Canadian videos released in the last week or so, but we’re going to keep it to just three vids in this post. Perhaps we’ll sneak in a bonus Vid Hits post some point soon.

 

If you’ve been into Canadian music at all over the last six months (more specifically, if you’ve visited other sites like this one you’re currently on, but no doubt the more popular versions), there’s a chance you’ve heard a song or two from Sackville, NB’s cheery rock & roll troubadour Shotgun Jimmie. We’ve been big fans of Jimmers work through his first two solo releases, up to this current gem, Transistor Sister, and so we’re delighted to be able to post his new video for “Suzy.” Not only because it’s a fun video for a great song, but now that summer has finally arrived here in Halifax, but we can also revel in the odd summer-skiing goodness in the video without pining for some similar sunshine. Back to back D-Sisive and Julie Doiron cameos? Yes, please.

 

I’ll freely admit that I haven’t listened to Vancouver’s Mother Mother much at all, and although the Ack covered their previous record, we’ve yet to post anything from their latest, Eureka. However, seeing as how the band is getting MuchMusic coverage and I’ve heard them played on the local modern rock station here, I don’t think they are hurting without our love. “Baby Don’t Dance” is a fun tune with a well-done video, so we’re ending our MM/Eureka drought with its posting.

 

Kingston’s PS I Love You has gotten quite the opposite treatment from us, as we’ve posted on them & their debut full-length Meet Me At The Muster Station a few times. Their new video for “Leftovers”, a joint effort with pal Diamond Rings (John O’Regan), takes a more low-key approach, travelogue approach, but it’s no less enjoyable and has me anticipating their return to Halifax for this year’s HPX. Enjoy the vids.
