The music video for the song Jules and Jim was filmed over the span of several months on location in Arch Cape, Oregon and inside a historic house in Providence, Rhode Island. It gently alludes to the classic French New Wave film of the same name. The video brings you into the dreamlike world of three characters who are both intertwined and isolated and into three different worlds which are also intertwined and yet isolated. Continue reading
Just in time for the holidays, we’ve got three great new t-shirt designs available in our merch store:
i had a blast playing in fred armisen’s bowery ballroom show on tuesday. along with fred (who totally rocked on guitar, drums and bass, while making the whole thing fun and hilarious), there was leigh gorman from bow wow wow, tim harrington and seth jabour from les savy fav, michael lerner from telekinesis, james mcnew from yo la tengo and leigh nash from sixpence none the richer. such a great group of musicians and people. the stage was covered in astro-turf and trees and shrubs! we all had jumpsuits!
my guitar was leaning against a hot amp and was well out-of-tune by the end, so haven’t watched the video (and don’t want to talk about it, haha, please don’t mention) but i had a fantastic time playing the telekinesis songs and the fred songs, and the introduction we’d worked up on a riff of fred’s the night before.

The video for Waiting For Something is a personal journey through interlocking time in the lives of several interconnected characters all of whom share in the mystique and beauty of their Spanish island – Ibiza.
Directed by Violetta D’Agata, the clip includes scenes shot at some well know island locations including Na Xamena, a heliport constructed in 1981 to bring royal famous and anonymous clients of the 5 star Hotel Hacienda to the island, Cap Es Falco, Roundabout E-10, which includes one of the most important sculptures by the artist Andreu Moreno and the Centenary Oak, a force of nature rising and spreading from the fertile ground of Ibiza–hidden in the north of the island where only a select few know of its whereabouts. It invites children and the imaginatively adventurous to climb its branches and share in its mystery.
While in Chicago a few weeks ago, the band stopped by the AV Club’s studio to record a cover of the New Order song ‘Bizarre Love Triangle.’ You can watch it here: http://avc.lu/KGFLMF
Because this song is so autobiographical, I thought it would be great to do a video about a kid growing up in New York. Phil harder directed and his son Otto played (is) the kid. We were knocked out by the footage, it captures such an unnameable feeling. Phil is currently editing a longer version of this as a short film, we can’t wait to see it.
