I have to admit that I’m a little late to the party when it comes to Harry Hookey. His name keeps popping up everywhere but it wasn’t until I watched the new video for track “Where I’ll Be Found”. Now I’m hooked.

“Where I’ll Be Found” is taken from Harry Hookey’s latest album Misdiagnosed. Check out the video below:

Sydney singer-songwriter James Thomson has just released his brand new video “Can’t Go Home This Way”. The track is taken from his sophomore album Cold Moon which is due out soon (the release date is yet to be announced). We’re really digging this track and we can’t wait to hear more.

Watch the New Gregory Alan Isakov Video “Amsterdam”

I love the music of Gregory Alan Isakov so much. It’s just so damn endeering. I was a little afraid that he’d peaked with 2007’s That Sea, The Gambler but both of his albums since – 2009’s This Empty Northern Hemisphere and 2013’s The Weatherman – are simply wonderful.

Gregory Alan Isakov’s new video is for the track “Amsterdam” and it’s absolutely pitch perfect for the track. Here’s the youtube blurb:

“This video was filmed over the course of a month and a half, using stop-motion animation, dioramas, and live shadow puppetry. It is a continuation of director Laura Goldhamer’s past techniques of mixing stop motion with live action; however, this time, the process was deeply collaborative and organic in nature, as the video was made at the farm that is home to the musician himself”
