Did you catch Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats while they were in the country for Bluesfest? By all accounts they were amazing, catching the attention of a lot of the local media.

Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats have just released their new video “I Need Never Get Old” which takes the studio based clip to the next level.

“It was a long 15-hour day, the video was fun,” Rateliff explained. “The concept of the video is us struggling over the song for decades, but ironically it took only two hours to record the song in the studio.”

Check out “I Need Never Get Old” below:

What do you do when you have a song called “Tommy Pieman” and you want to make a video? Eat pies!

“Tommy Pieman” is the third single from Tasmanian folk punks The Dead Maggies’ recent album Well Hanged.

“There are so many graphic scenes of band members stuffing their faces with pies that I think I was in a mild state of disbelief whilst shooting,” cinematographer Josh Troy explained. “Only now that I’ve seen it edited can I fully appreciate the flesh in mouth, beard and nose beauty of it.”

Check out the video for “Tommy Pieman” here:
