This is really sweet. Melbourne folkies Dan Arnott (Dan and Amy) and Al Parkinson have come together to record a really sweet duet “I Wish That I Hadn’t Met You Through Him”.
“We wrote the song more than three years ago and never got around to putting the finishing touches on it until last week when we both had the afternoon free, and we decided to make a video,” Dan Arnott explained. “It’s based on a half-truth of a shared experience that we’ve stretched and elongated (especially after three years) into a song about friendships and relationships.”

I reckon “Take Me to the Mountains” is probably my favourite track on the new Davidson Brothers album Wanderlust so I’m pretty chuffed they’ve chosen it as their new single and video. The video is made from vintage home movie style footage and is directed by Summer DeRoche.

Enigmatic singer-songwriter Father John Misty has given us another taste of his upcoming album I Love You, Honeybear (due on the 6th February) with the release of his video “Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins)”.
“I don’t care all that much if you like the music video or not,” Josh Tillman, AKA Father John Misty, confessed. “The label isn’t crazy about it. Management isn’t crazy about it. I have been informed I’m basically kissing an MTV “Woodie” award goodbye forever. I made it on an iPad on my wedding anniversary with the one I love. We ate pancakes.”

Quintessential Doll’s “Take Your Medication” is a musical commentary of today’s overly-medicated, anxiety-ridden society. This animated music video uses surreal carnival imagery to highlight the whimsical nature of the song whilst drawing on the sinister connotations of the story by using silhouettes of ominous characters. “Take Your Medication” is from the Let Not the Monsters Destroy Me EP.
