Hardworking weatherman-referencing and Lykke Li-remixing Gossip Girl grads Sam Champion have a new album Heavenly Bender on the horizon. That’s a hell of a lot of things to affix to the Brooklyn quartet in one sentence. Likewise, the Awesome & Modest-directed video for Heavenly’s “You Can’t Stop” affixes a number of ad hoc filters to the camera — syrup, lights, cacti, flames, feathers, goldfish, cardboard cutouts, etc. It was shot in their old Dumbo rehearsal space and we’re told by the band, “There are zero special effects. It’s like an old home movie.”
Exactly like an old home movie. You can hear more of Sam here.
Heavenly Bender is out 9/2 on North Street.
