Twin Steps “Junkie Song” blew my mind last week and this video that was tossed in to my lap last night of them playing that song underneath a bridge in Portland, OR, reminds me just why my grey matter is a splatter on some concrete wall somewhere. The amazing people over at NW film collective Into The Woods are the mad geniuses behind this video. Head on over to the website to see a fine selection of other SF bands captured in the wild, wooly Northwest.
I couldn’t tell you what kind of music Gardens and Villa makes beyond “catchy as hell.” That’s a genre right? Most reminiscent of the avant-pop of Nurses, Gardens and Villa’s debut album from Secretly Canadian has had me floating on a toe-tapping haze all summer. They’re a band I think you’ll be hearing lots more from in the coming months, but Seattle can make their acquaintance officially tomorrow, where the band is playing The Tractor Tavern with The Generationals and The Soft Hills.
In case you only stumbled on to furious masturbating when searching for Nurses on Chatroulette in late February, the band, with the help of Into the Woods, have turned their wild web adventure into a brand new NSFW music video. The band’s foray into this new (and naughty) online forum crashed Chatroulette, but before it did, there were plenty of interesting encounters. As the band plays “So Sweet” they run into all kinds of, shall we say, characters.
While the people (and parts) watching is fun, it’s no surprise what we love most about this video is Nurses and their inspiring inventiveness, both in their sound and the venue they chose to share it in.
Unless there’s a repeat of last year’s full-on Decemberists crowd sex, you can see Nurses with a lot less naked people on Saturday May 29th at Sasquatch.
