I know it’s been a while since our last video spotlight went up. Let’s just say that while some people spend their summers riding beach cruisers, eating otter pops, and pouring into music blogs, others are digging out piles of rocks from an otherwise great yard and then dealing with back problems that are usually reserved for men 40 years my senior. I’m just saying…
But instead of making excuses, I’ll just mention that we have a handful of great videos on the horizon–15 to be exact. In the next couple of weeks we’ll have Crystal Antlers and Dear and the Headlights video spotlights up (special thanks to Nate for being a soldier and helping me edit my footage/interview from the DATH show).
Here is the complete list of videos you can expect to see soon on motorcademag.com/motorcade.tv (the video arm of this site). After Crystal Antlers & Dear and the Headlights, this list is in no particular order:
- Crystal Antlers (within 2 weeks)
- Dear and the Headlights (within 2 weeks)
- Bishop Allen
- Neon Trees
- Shark Speed (sorry for the wait NT & SS; we ran into some crazy technical difficulties with your Velour footage due to our hard drive dropping frames)
- Miniature Tigers
- Cub Country
- The Black Lips
- Drew Danburry
- Love Like Fire
- Awesome Color
- The Pains of Being Pure At Heart
- The Depreciation Guild
- Cymbals Eat Guitars.
In the meantime, I’ll be getting up some still frames of the upcoming videos to wet your palette.
All these artists have been amazing to interview, have put on incredible shows, and have all had great things to say about some of the issues confronting musical artists in this day and age. For me, meeting these artists is truly one of the finest parts of this job.
