Song of the Day: Outer Minds – We Are All Stone

outer minds

With a musical nod to L.A.’s famed Whiskey a Go Go circa ’67 and a visual nod to both Tim Burton movies and Tool videos from the mid nineties, Outer Minds have concocted one of the stranger music videos I have seen as of late. Filled with ghoulish, organ playing skeletons and hunchback monsters brooding over possible forbidden fruits, the stop motion video was filmed in both 16mm and 35mm film by Zebulon Medearis and Andrew Barker. It’s nice to see bands still putting quality effort into video releases instead of  just bowing and catering to the insta-gratification craving fan bases of today. Quality over quantity always wins. (And yes, I know I’m just as guilty as the next guy).

‘We Are All Stone’ can be found on the Chicago band’s 2012 album ‘Behind The Mirror’ and word is we can expect new tunes from the band later this year, which will hopefully lead to more tripped out visual aids as well. Turn down the lights and enjoy this one…
