Old Monk “Seymour” music video premieres on Brooklyn Vegan

Old Monk’s new music video for “Seymour” premiered earlier this week on Brooklyn Vegan! Watch the video below:

Local indie rockers Old Monk are busy finishing the follow-up to 2012’s Birds of Belize, a record that should be out in early 2014. Meanwhile, the band have a stopgap single out now on Eenie Meenie, the very catchy “Seymour.” We’ve got the premiere of its video in this post. Using 8-bit graphics it works in references to Pitfall!, plus a slew of classic films (Safety Last, Annie Hall, The Good, the Bad & the Ugly to name three) and was directed/animated by Josh Carrafa who you may know from his Music History Gifs website. You can check it out below.

Prefix premieres Blue-Eyed Son “We’re Fighting a War” (Andrew Maury RAC remix)

Blue-Eyed Son’s “We’re Fighting a War” remixed by Andrew Maury of RAC has premiered on Prefix today!

Andrew Maury, a member of RAC (Remix Artist Collective) has a skillset that knows no bounds. When it comes to producing, engineering, and remixing, he can take any track and turn it into almost anything he desires. This includes the work he did for Andrew Heilprin aka Blue-Eyed Son from Venice Beach, California.

Blue-Eyed Son usually totes just a guitar and his voice. He has a bare bones approach to writing his surf-influenced acoustic punk. But when Maury got a hold of his track “We’re Fighting A War,” he turned the track into a frolicking pop punk track but full of synths, keys, and electronic beats. The seriousness of the songs becomes much breezier with the rework. Heilprin’s voice is softened and is surrounded by an echoing whirlwind of sounds. The song is so much more upbeat that it’d make your hands and hips start to sway into a joyous dance.

The original version of the track will be featured on his upcoming EP Shadows On The Son. It will be released on Eenie Meenie Records on May 28, 2013. Blue-Eyed Son will be touring behind the album. You can check out the tour dates below as well as the remix of the song by Andrew Maury of RAC.

Premiere: Goldenboy “The Walking Song” [Under The Radar]

Despite Shon Sullivan’s time spent with the likes of Elliott Smith, The Eels, Neil Finn, Spain, and The Rentals among others, his main project Goldenboy has been a well-kept secret. Check out the video for “The Walking Song,” a cut from the band’s forthcoming album The New Familiar (out November 20 via Eenie Meenie). It’s a warm, tuneful reminder that Goldenboy is band that commands the spotlight.
