The next video from PLANETS DON’T TWINKLE. Once again we filmed the performance in our hotel room at the Hard Rock Hotel in Lake Tahoe. The eldritch abominations were channeled from the 2016 GOP primary. A comment on our current level of socio-political discourse. Can’t we do better? Get the song here!
Recently, the Granite Countertops were asked to contribute a track to an upcoming tribute album devoted to the music of Baltimore singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/home recording artist Linda Smith. We chose one of Linda’s most inspiring songs, “It’s Now”. It came out so well that we decided to put it out as a single on Ear Candle Productions. (The artwork here is based on one of Linda’s own paintings.)
We are at work creating videos for all of the songs on the Granite Countertops album, PLANETS DON’T TWINKLE. Here is our video realization of “High Definition”, with special guest Frank Lev on soprano sax and words courtesy of authors Michel Chion, 1994 Audio Vision (ISBN 0-231-07899-4) and John Storey, 2006 Cultural Theory and Popular Culture An Introduction. (ISBN-13: 978-0-8203-2839-3)
