There’s a record that hit the stores today called 151a, and it’s really quite wonderful. On that record there’s a sprightly track called “Bright Whites” and there’s now a video for it! Check out the video below, where Kishi Bashi is dressed up wonderfully as a bird, and then gets beaten up by a bunch of people (some of which are members of the band of Montreal). The poor little dear!
On the (ahem) bright side, the strange content of the video is down to the fact that it has a bunch of hidden messages in it, and should you be able to identify them correctly, you could win a copy of 151a and a $100 gift voucher! Head over to Kishi Bashi’s website for more details.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
