Today we have the pleasure to bring you California band Siddartha and they’re stunning video for their equally great song “Sometimes You Get So Alone It Just Makes Sense.”
Siddartha spawned out of the unique mind of one Marlon Hauser who met the rest of the band in the street in San Francisco. Using electric and acoustic guitars, drums, bass, African xylophone, and djembe to back his vocals, Hauser created a brand of music that he has termed Dashiki Shoegaze.
“Sometimes You Get So Alone (It Just Makes Sense)” finds Siddartha in an introspectively bluesy form of their sound with heartfelt and relatable lyrics and a killer rock groove. The video is shot in glorious black and white and shows our protagonist prowling the streets meeting a few people on his way, but ultimately he is alone in the world.

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.
