Just a pretty music video from Eisley, thought I'd spread the word that they put it out today. Love the color, it's not a complicated video but seems to represent the band and the song quite well. Wish the mtvU site had credits. If you know who made it, give me a shout out!
Whenever I'm scouting material for this segment I usually get drawn into the neatly packaged/marketed indie music that spreads so nicely on social media. They've usually got a lot to do with design, animation, etc, via their music videos and album art.

Every now and then, I come across something like this- great music produced by great talent and incidentally, great youth! It doesn't have to come in a shiny, shrink wrapped package to be significant to the creative discussion- it is creativity is its most genuine form.
Jonny Mizzone age 8 on banjo, Robbie Mizzone age 12 on fiddle, and Tommy Mizzone age 13 on guitar. Keep rockin kids, you're awesome!
In other music news, new Death Cab song streaming now... (I'm starting to think this segment should be a weekly music round-up...we'll see where it goes!)
