Here are some more new music videos that have entertained me recently.
Losers feat. Riz MC & Envy - Flush
This is a really cool video featuring the artwork of Dan Hiller. It has shades of Monty Python animation.
Yeasayer – O.N.E.
A really cool song with a music video that starts of narrative and then explodes with a typically chaotic yeasayer performance scene.
Seabear – I’ll Build You a Fire
A really innovative artistic and etherial music video. Let’s be honest, I couldn’t resist.
She and Him – In the Sun
A cute little pop song with a music video that borrows elements from classic 1960s musical films. Read more »
Check out photography editor Peter Senzamici’s pictures from the seabear concert.
Here are some pictures snapped by art editor Liana Blum at the Seabear concert on Monday, March 29, 2010
WRBC and Bates College were really fortunate to have world-class Icelandic indie-folk-rockers Seabear to drop by campus on March 29, 2010 for a little concert. With our new flipcam, The Monkey recorded the concert for those of you that were maybe too tied up with thesis or abroad to come. Here are a few of the highlights:
Sindri talks about performing at Bates
Arms from “The Ghost that Carried Us Away”
Cat Piano from “The Ghost that Carried Us Away”
Stay tuned for more videos as they become available. To those of you that came out on a rainy Monday, WRBC, Seabear, and all involved are really thankful. Read more »

Let’s make one thing clear here, Iceland’s Seabear is without a doubt one of my favorite bands of all time. Their succinct anti-folk sensibility is unique even within the confines of the seemingly overcrowded world of the folk revival that is currently still in its indie infancy.
From the time that I first played their 2007 debut, The Ghost that Carried Us Away, my love of Seabear, as my friends might tell you had bordered on insanity and irrationality, but its all in good fun.
Alongside their recent full-length release (a very good album, by the way), We Built a Fire, the band chose to also put together a brief EP called The Fire Dies Out. The two records seem similar at the core, obviously the instrumentation is basically the same, but the EP is, truthfully an experience unto itself. Read more »
