Music Video: Wilberforces - My Mind Is In My Paws

I was meant to put this up a while back but I have been neglecting blogging duties here as you might have noticed. But this is a music video I made for Wilberforces for their wicked song "My Mind Is In My Paws". It was made on a whim while we were stranded in Wellington due to a cancelled flight a couple months ago. We stayed the night at the Copthorne Hotel which is where all the hotel stuff is shot. Considering I have no previous experience in making music videos of any kind and that there was no script/money involved in this, I think it turned out okay:

Live Review: Grouper & Pumice

Been meaning to put this up... here's my review of the Grouper/Pumice show at Whammy on March 12.
As the sole dream weaver behind last year’s most gorgeous record Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill, Portland, Oregon’s Liz Harris aka Grouper held the decently sized crowd at Whammy spellbound with her brand of ghostly, nebulous drone-pop. She cut a waifish, slightly reticent, bird-like figure on-stage, softly pawing her electric guitar through simple chord progressions while her spine-chilling vocals, layered via looping pedals, filled the room, harmonizing with itself into clusters of pillowy, ethereal sound. The set was perhaps on the short side at 40 minutes, but nonetheless darkly captivating stuff to bliss out to. The rarely performing Pumice opened charmingly ramshackle as ever. Fuzzy, crackling, and always seeming on the verge of falling apart, his unstable, feedback-riddled lo-fi ditties had that subterranean quality that made him an apt complement to Grouper’s otherworldliness. (Real Groove, April '09)
