He's in the ring with folk's heavy hitters, but he's not a knockout yet


Folk

Stephen Carradini
Close your eyes. Clear your mind. Turn on Chris Bathgate’s “Salt Year.” Let it wash over you. Don’t think about it — just do it.

Music Video Monday, NMF hangover version

Nine of them! Nine!

So I’m just now recovering work-wise from Norman Music Festival. The below stack of music videos all came just before, during or in the week after the three-day extravaganza.

I’m even more sad that I missed The Gentle Art of Floating’s NMF set after seeing this video of what happened (and here’s a photo album, if you like cultivating regret):



Stuff catches fire inside a moving van during this Broncho clip:



The Royal Tenenbaums would approve of this hilarious clip from Arcade Fire-esque folksters Alcoholic Faith Mission, which details 12+ ways to bury your dead mouse:



Crossing the streams of awesome and ridiculous, here’s Jack Conte (Pomplamoose) performing the Mario theme completely on real instruments. Whoa:



The Black Ryder released this spaghetti Western video for “Sweet Come Down,” and it’s a clear example of a video outshining good-but-not-great track:



Emphatically dance-rockin’ Brits The Wombats invert “Lost in Translation” by having a party all over Tokyo, much to the chagrin of their tour manager:



Andrew Belle plays a delicate version of “The Ladder” that will please Ray LaMontagne fans while visiting The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, on which I wrote one of my first articles ever:



Still geeking out over my recent smartphone purchase, I’m thrilled that you can actually scan the barcode at 0:52 in this Lupe Fiasco video:



For no apparent reason, here’s Merge’s mellow-pop band The Ladybug Transistor performing a tune in a Holiday Inn bedroom:
