Published Jun 27, 2011It may be Monday, but we have two good reasons why you shouldn't be upset about that. First, all of us here in Canada get to enjoy a nice short workweek as we get ready to celebrate our great country this coming weekend. Plus, a new week means we've gathered up a choice collection of new streams, downloads and videos from our Click Hear section. Here's a look at some of what you can find there right now.
One thing's for sure: there's been no shortage of videos for you to enjoy this past week. And since Canada Day is just around the corner, let's start things off with one that emits Canadiana. Vancouver duo (and Great Lake Swimmers offshoot) Siskiyou gave us a video for their song "Never Ever Ever Ever Again," which features wooden geese, snow and scenes of British Columbia.
In other exciting music videos, Fucked Up have given us their first vid off of their acclaimed new album David Comes to Life and it's for "Queen of Hearts." But surely, we can't talk music video firsts without Explosions in the Sky. After six full-lengths and more than ten years of being together, the instrumental group have finally released their first-ever music video. This beautifully illustrated clip is for "Last Known Surroundings," which is the lead track on their recently released album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care.
But of course, music videos aren't the only way for you to enjoy your tunes visually. Radiohead performed their entire King of Limbs album for a show called From the Basement. While they were there, though, they also played a new track called "Staircase" and we have that video for you too.
Next up, we have the epically titled "Stephen Colbert Presents, 2011: A Rock Odyssey with Jack White." This three-part mini-series is based off of an interview that the host did with White. As an added treat, the episodes lead up to the premiere of Colbert's White-produced track "Charlene II (I'm Over You)." And we have part one, part two and part three.
But if you need to give your eyes a rest after all of that video goodness, you can check out a stream of Megan Bonnell's debut EP Maps which is out now on Nevado Records.
Be sure to check out these streams, downloads and videos, as well as many more, in our Click Hear section.
