“Somebody New” by Joywave, directed by Keith Schofield. The video finds the band skateboarding around Los Angeles while performing their new song. Speaking about the creative for the video, the band said, “We wanted to look like we were great at some physical activity, so CGI was the only option. For the first time, we had the means to create an alternate universe in which we were actually good at something.”
Best skate video ever.
During the course of all the parties, meetings, showcases and debauchery of last weeks’ NXNE conference, I managed to meet up with some bloggers (both from in and out of town). A few people I met at the Kelp Records BBQ on Friday afternoon were the rad guys at Tympanogram; a Rochester, NY based blog I’d started following a couple months ago. Their posts always get a listen from me because most of the time, its a quality new artist I haven’t heard. Trusting their ears, I’m happy to report that they’ve decided to take a step into the limited-release vinyl label end of this, launching Tympanogram Records with their first signing Joywave.
The first release from fellow Rochesterians Joywave is a 7” single (limited to 500 copies) on white vinyl. The A-side is a track called “Ridge”, which will be sure to make a few summer mixtapes. The AA-side is an original that was on the bands’ wildly successful 77777 mixtape – “Traveling at the Speed of Light.” Look for this release probably by the end of July, in the meantime pre-order.
