VIDEO HITS:: Ohbijou New Years

It's no secret I absolutely love the new Ohbijou record, Beacons. It's a lock for my Top 10 at year's end and I couldn't think of anything better they could have done with the songs... except make a stellar stop animation video that reminds me of Labyrinth and the dog from Never Ending Story.

Oh, they just did.

Future Watch:: Teaser for Rich Aucoin's New Album

We've said words to this effect before, but if you asked us to point out the one artist we've met that possesses the top combination of talent, creativity, ambition and just all hustle, it would be tough to top the one man band that is Rich Aucoin. That said, we're always happy to report on new Rich-related developments, the latest of which is a new teaser video for his upcoming album, which he's hoping to release early next year. The vid was featured yesterday on Radio 3's blog, but you can check it out below:

The album will be called We're All Dying To Live: Public Publication EP/Over The Top! LP and was recorded in various places across Canada, from coast to coast, with the help of 500 of Rich's closest friends (that is correct, 500, I told you he was ambitious). Like Rich's last album, this one shall have a movie to sync up with it, but I think this time out it will be not one specific film, but one created by Rich from snippits of other films. Sounds pretty damn interesting to me, and we're hoping to get a sneak peek at it in a few months, so stay tuned.
