Howler, Big Quarters, Buildings drop new music videos
Minnesota artists are releasing music videos at such a fast clip these days that we can barely keep up with posting the best ones. Just yesterday, three separate videos from Twin Cities artists were lighting up our Twitter feeds and Facebook pages, and one was even debuted by Rolling Stone magazine's blog.
Though they've been busy touring and making a name for themselves in the U.K., Minneapolis sensations Howler shot their entire video in their hometown. "Back of Your Neck" is a track off their forthcoming Rough Trade full-length debut, America Give Up . Rolling Stone magazine debuted the video yesterday, which features footage of the band playing at First Avenue (where they recently opened for tUnE-yArDs).
Buildings make aggressive, scuzzy rock 'n' roll, so it's appropriate that their new video filmed by Northern Outpost is raw, sweaty, and jagged, capturing the band from various close-up angles while they pummel through "Rainboat." The band is performing a release show for their new album, Melt Cry Release, this Saturday at the Hexagon, and you can read a recent City Pages interview with them here.
