We Shot Issue 13 & 14 this weekend.  Here is some footage we shot of Surf Curse right after we shot them on Sunday.  

It only took like 90 seconds before the everyone went nuts!

How lucky are we. 

(Apologies for the shitty camera audio)

Here is Issue #12 Featuring GIRLPOOL!

These girls deserve the world.  If I could sit down every human and make them listen to them I would. 

Here is Issue #11 Featuring Hollows!

These guys are rad! The video has been out for a few weeks and a few people have told us they got into them via the video. It makes me so happy, thats what Stumble on Tapes is all about.  Go Stumble on new music!

I just realized I haven’t put stuff up here in a while.  

This is Issue #10 with Afergloam

Cannot wait to finish the Girlpool video.  These super babes made a really great record.  Its so short and has so much depth in a few short minutes that you end up listening to it 5 times before you can move on to anything else. Give them a listen.

Savages Live in London

Takes me back to Joy Division. 

Love. 

This was the first time we took our dog on a shoot with us. We were nervous, didn’t know if he was going to freak out as soon as the drums started. It made our day that when we showed up Nima had his dog too. 

They make really great music, can’t wait to hear the new record soon. Highly recommend you dance to Inner City. 

Roxy put together this dope as Promo for Issue #9.  12 seconds, watch it. 

Stumble On Tapes Issues #8

When we met these guys at Cascades Park the sun was setting fast and the waterfall was over powering the instruments.  We had some technical hick ups but managed to get a decent take before the sky wen to black.  One of my favorite issues for sure.  The Music is so good, this is what I were imagining when we started this project.  A band we love taking a recorded song and magically transforming it into something new by playing it acoustically, intimately. 

Our new Issue of Stumble on Tapes is now live.  Issue #7 features Bahia Tropic in the forest.  Give it a listen.

Roxy and I filmed this a few months ago in an abandoned store in LA. It was spur of the moment and we only took one take of each song. Here is the first song off this series.  Its beautiful.  

All effects are manually made by Jorge using a projector and toys. Re-recorded on VHS and spliced in FCP.

The sound guy at the satellite is fantastic. We all know T is great, but man those drums sounded so good tonight.

Fuck, I haven’t seen a video that makes me this happy in a while. Can you imagine being the steady cam guy. Makes you happily guess what  kind of space she recorded those vocals in.  Large empty loft in gritty New York.  So vast and sharp and simple.
