New Videos: The Faint, Calexico

 

Ace tracks from both
band’s brand new albums.

By Blurt Staff

 

 Omaha’s
resident electro-pop thugs The Faint return after a long layoff with a spanking
new album. “The Geeks Were Right” is the focus track from Fasciinatiion,
issued a couple of weeks ago on their Blankwav label. “I saw the future —
the geeks were right,” sings the band. Far be it from us to disagree.

 

Meanwhile,
we’ve also got study in geographical beauty, giving the viewer a genuine sense
of the city that spawned Calexico while subtly lining elements of the group’s
overall sound. Directed by James Fleischel, the video for “Two Silver Trees” comes from the forthcoming Calexico album Carried To Dust (Touch &
Go/Quarterstick). You can read about the band and the story behind the making
of the album in the current digital magazine issue of BLURT. Just click on the
Calexico image elsewhere on our homepage.
