[Listen] Said the Whale- Father

No Comments 07 July 2014

Last month, Said the Whale dropped a new tune “Father” on Father’s Day. I was super busy and totally forgot to post it. The track was recorded with Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, the Shins), so there’s a certain folk-reverb vibe going on but it soon turns into the driving Said the Whale tunes we all know and love.

10. Brasstronaut- The Grove

Based on a true story from Edo’s past. A close family friend (and criminal lawyer) had been laundering money for the cartel.

 

9.  PUP- Reservoir

What seems like a live performance turns violently bloody.

 

8. Dominique Fricot- Our Last Song

This dude changes his clothes like 850 times.

 

7. Hilary Grist- Silver Lining

Adorable paper crafts tell the story of this song.

 

6. Said the Whale- I Love You

Said the Whale go MXC and it’s quite funny.

 

Teen Daze- New Life

This video is a reply to “Stay” which was shot five years ago and shows how much can change over a few years.

 

4. Evening Hymns- Song to Sleep To

This song has turned into a mini animated short by French artist Gaelle Legrand.

 

3. Mac DeMarco- My Kind of Woman

The song suddenly becomes more than a lovesong in this video where DeMarco crossdresses.

 

2. Black Paw Society- Yeti

Action figures have a dance-off.

 

1. Majical Cloudz- Childhood’s End

Welsh’s dad stars in this brilliant and touching video.
