The "Home" Video from L.A.'s Great Northern filmed by Winch and Pulley Productions

One of my favorite bands and best albums of the year just got a video made by my favorite music video production team - and I couldn't be happier!

Making the Video for "Home"

Filmmaker Josh Forbes (at center) with
Great Northern (Eenie Meenie Records) on set.

Great Northern released one of the best indie rock releases of 2007 with "Trading Twilight for Daylight" (my album review) and we last met up with Winch and Pulley Productions (also Los Angeles) when I did my interview with filmmaker Josh Forbes last year. Josh is the man behind great videos from the Cold War Kids, Irving, the Shins, the Submarines and They Might Be Giants! (my interview with Josh Forbes) With their mighty forces combined - well, the results speak for themselves: The blog premiere of "Home" right here on the RSL:

This video is dedicated to Josh's father Rick Forbes
who passed away during its filming.

Great Northern - Home

Great Northern plays Boston again
next Monday (7/23) at the Middle East in Cambridge.
