Video: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. – “Dark Water”


“Dear Internet and users of the World Wide Web, it is with much joy that we wish to present the video for “Dark Water”. We feel that this video really encapsulates the tone of the song in a haunting and strangely beautiful way.  Also, there are claymation versions of us–which has been a life long goal. Mission accomplished” – Josh Epstein and Daniel Zott, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

“Dark Water” is off the band’s brand new EP, Patterns, which came out a couple weeks ago. Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. are booked to perform their hit in the making “If You Didn’t See Me (Then You Weren’t On The Dancefloor)” on CONAN June 11th.

The guys have just come off playing a string of sold-out shows in support of the new EP, including a hometown Record Store Day show in Detroit and a Brooklyn show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Next up they will be performing at El Rey in Los Angeles tomorrow, May 16th. For a full list of upcoming show dates, see below.

Setting Sun – “Driving”

‘Driving’ by Setting Sun

Here’s the new video from Setting Sun, aka prolific songwriter Gary Levitt, in anticipation of the upcoming release of Fantasurreal on June 1. Set to Levitt’s bouncy indie folk and animated by artist Charles Pieper, the video pays tribute to ’90s independent animation, a la MTV’s iconic “Liquid Television” series. Watching the Pieper’s trippy claymation interspersed between shots of Levitt, it’s hard not to expect early Mike Judge and “Æon Flux” shorts to follow.
