Video Roundup: Artifice, Goldmund, Adam Brock, Tyler Stenson, The Shins
Another gloomy rainy day. Another perfect excuse to stay indoors and watch video clips on your computer. Start with this track from the post-Dirty Mittens disco pop project Artifice, performed live by the band at Holocene.
Now that you're in a nice restive state, pick up the pace with a clip from Adam Brock, a young musician originally from the wilds of Washington State who has been doing a "Song Calendar" where he writes and records a new song for every month in 2012 and then makes a video for them. Here is his poppy installment for April entitled "Paleontology".
Now, let's rein it in a bit with a track by countrified singer-songwriter Tyler Stenson. I'm not entirely sure why he chose to do a video for a track that came out two years ago on his album Bittersweet Parade. I'm just happy to see the city bathed in some sunshine.
Finally - and I know I'm taking a calculated risk by putting this last - follow The Shins as they take the people behind 360 Sessions on a tour of our fair city and play some tunes from their new album Port of Morrow. There...doesn't that make you feel better about the overcast gloom outside?
