There are no houses in Tiburones' "Golden House" video. No manmade structures of any kind, actually. But there is a lot of gold—specifically, many shots of golden-colored rural vistas, presumably from somewhere in Eastern Oregon. "Fields of Gold" would probably be a more appropriate title, but I suppose that's already taken. Regardless, it's a simple but effective clip, alternating between gorgeous landscape photography and artful shots of members Luz Elena Mendoza and Nick Delffs, the Portland music scene vets whose harmonies power this project, which will hopefully continue even with Mendoza's main gig, Y La Bamba, in the midst of ramping back up again.
A native Southern Californian, Music editor Matthew Singer gentrified Portland in 2008. Before ruining the city with his presence, he was an editor at his hometown's alt-weekly. He is an advocate for the canonization of the Fishbone and Oingo Boingo discographies, believes pro-wrestling is a serious art form and has no interest in Game of Thrones. As if all that weren't bad enough, he is also a big Lakers fan. Unfortunately, he doesn't plan on leaving the state anytime soon.
