To celebrate the album/tour, he’s put out a new video for the track, “Old Mate,” which features actor John Noble of Lord of the Rings and Fringe amongst other things.

The Lovely Sparrows, the longtime Austin area project of Shawn Jones, have made their return from a seven year hiatus from the pop music world to bring you this video for “A Light,” which just premiered on Billboard today! The video is done by Fantagraphics artist, Derek Van Gieson, and features in depth stylized animation of a character living in a post-apocalyptic world on a quest. Musically, “A Light” is soft indie rock, with frenetic riffs and a feeling of constant motion; kind of like a swirling undercurrent that pulls you in and holds you under. Take a peek at the video below and get excited for The Lovely Sparrows first LP in 7 years, Shake The Shadow, which will be out this Friday on Abandoned Love Records.
LA-based Lisa Papineau has announced her fourth solo record for release on February 15 and shared a video for the title track at Parade Magazine, who say, “Minimally produced with uber-present vocals underlying a contemplative and simple stop animation video, the song and video showcase Papineau’s lush and lovely vocals.” The video was created by longtime creative collaborator Betsy Kenyon and you can check it out below!
