Epic Video Post

There seems to be heaps of quality new videos out at the moment. Here are some of them.

The Decemberists always have fantastic videos and their latest, Calamity Song is no exception. Based heavily on the novel Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace it shows the band watching a game of tennis turn into a thermonuclear disaster. While it could have turned out horribly wrong, The Decemberists have enough charm and humour to make it compelling viewing.

From war tennis to meteors.

I dare you to watch Ball Park Music’s clip for It’s Nice To Be Alive and not smile. It’s impossible.

It’s a universally acknowledged fact that Bon Iver is amazing. It is also well-known that Iceland has some of the prettiest scenery ever.Put them together and you get the video for Holocene.

The Rescue Ships are Brian Campeau and Elana Stone. Both are accomplished musicians in their own right with multiple albums and years of experience between them but put them together and you get something wonderful.

I saw these guys a few months ago and their live show is something special. They have a winning combination of hilarious banter and engaging music.

They’ve released a video for their single Up In The Air which was recently made Rage’s Indie of the Week. Brian broke his leg filming and both band members filmed videos about filming the video which are also recommended viewing.
