Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Longface’s ‘Deep Fried American Dreams’

Chicago’s Longface turned to Flint, Michigan multimedia artist, musician, and tinkerer Ryan Gregory to direct the video for ‘Deep Fried American Dreams’, the new single from their latest album Hillbilly Wit.

For the album, the band looked to create a melting pot of sorts where beer-drinking bumpkins, urban hipsters, and starving artists combine to create an uneasy sideshow of Americana. In its more serious moments, Hillbilly Wit explores moments of social isolation, substance abuse, and economic stagnation. But it’s not without its lighter moments that radiate a folksy playfulness and whimsical storytelling.

10/16 – Chicago, IL – Empty Bottle

Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Thundercat’s ‘Show You the Way’ (Featuring Michael McDonald & Kenny Loggins)

‘Show You The Way’, the lead-off track from Thundercat’s latest release Drunk, features appearances by Michael McDonald, formerly of the Doobie Brothers, and Kenny Loggins.

It’s the follow-up to the samurai-themed ‘Them Changes’.

Directors Katarzyna Sawicka and Carlos Lopez Estrada had this to say about the video in a statement; “We got the track from Thundercat and quickly realized that we had a unique opportunity to continue the story that we had started with ‘Them Changes.’ We ended that video on a fairly grim note but ‘Show You The Way’ offered a bright and contrasting soundtrack for a sequel of redemption.”

Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Nick Hakim’s ‘Cuffed’

The video for Nick Hakim‘s ‘Cuffed’, taken from his debut Green Twins, out now on ATO, reimagines the Santeria rituals of Venezuela’s Maria Lionza cult with the dedication of the members growing with the intensity of the song.

Hakim’s music draws equally from the music of Nirvana and Bad Brains that his brother exposed him to growing up in Washington, DC as well as the Nueva canción his parents listened to and striking out to forge his own path.

He didn’t take up an instrument until after graduating from high school when he moved to Boston to study music. He’s since relocated to Brooklyn.
