Celestial Shore – “Hour Minute” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
What the hell? Since when did summer camp turn into “hanging out with cool Brooklyn bands and shooting music videos all week”? When I was a kid we just braided gimp. That’s all we did, all day, and we didn’t think it could get better than that. Not so since Brooklyn psych-pop trio Celestial Shore teamed up with some kids (roughly ages 6-11) from the Art Colony Day Camp (part of the Children’s Museum Of The Arts) to make a music video for “Hour Minute.” The track is a whirlpool of drum change-ups, trippy bass lines, and surf guitar — in other words it’s just as unpredictable and awesome as everything Celestial Shore has put out so far. The video, which is directed by Sean Dunn and Emily Alexander, has a patchwork, handmade vibe to it that matches the band perfectly, and the kids are all really adorable and enthusiastic. Watch it below and check out the band’s debut album 10x.
