Matthew Barber and Justin Rutledge have taken up residency in Montréal to perform live musical accompaniment for the Segal Centre’s theatrical staging of the Graduate under Andrew Shaver’s direction. This weekend, Matthew Barber spoke to La Presse about the duo’s original music written for the play, carrying the torch of haunting and organic folk songs from the infamous Simon & Garfunkel soundtrack.
In Summer 2014, Leif Vollebekk performed at the immense, candle-lit Deeper Down Festival in Munich, Germany, and Hauskonzerte filmed his intimate piano-laden performance of “Photographer Friend” from 2013′s North Americana, released on Outside Music. Hauskonzerte also filmed Leif’s sparing, electrified cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “If I Needed You“, a favourite of ours from his tour.
Director Annie Hardy of Full Psycho Records compiled live footage of the band, offering a psychedelic glimpse at the miscreant happenings of suburban North Hollywood.
Released today on USA Today in the States and CBC Music in Canada, we are proud to present the new music video for Jill Barber’s “Broken for Good”, the lead single from her new album Fool’s Gold released this summer on Outside Music.
“The song is written from the point-of-view of someone who has been hurt, but is not going to go down without a fight. I love that the director Ante Kovac has had me alone in the spotlight for much of the shooting of this video because it’s a really vulnerable place to be. That’s how it feels when you’re heart is broken – nobody is feeling it with you. It’s an isolating feeling and you have to overcome it. You have to fight back.”
