Friday Night Videos :: The Happy Hollows

Tonight's Friday night video is another band that will be at NXNE next month {18 June at Lee's Palace}. The above video is a live version of "High Wire" The Happy Hollows from LA bill themselves as art pop, but this Pitchfork review of their 2009 'Spells' does a good job of describing their sound. This isn't prettied up indie pop, as there's a raw edge to it, but not to the point where it's not accessible. Case in point, here's "High Wire" in a Samsung commercial::

"Meteors" is from 2006 'Bunnies and Bombs' EP::

"Death to Vivek Kemp" is for those of you needing an iPod commercial visual fix::
