New Long Winters Video – “Fire Island, AK”

We already told you how much we love John Roderick and the new Long Winters album Putting The Days To Bed. Especially the shimmery pop-rock “Fire Island, AK.” When we found out our friend Bex Schwartz was directing the video, we thought Stereogum would be the perfect place to premiere it:

Nice job Bex! And thanks for the fretboard close-up, so we can all play the solo now. Of course, we know a director hates to see her work turned all pixelly, so here are the higher-res deeplinks: QT | WIN MEDIA

TLW’s critically acclaimed new album is in stores now (Amazon | iTunes).

There’s a free not-so-secret-anymore Long Winters show at Mercury Lounge in NYC tonight and a John solo in-store at Other Music tomorrow. Then the band’s off to Seattle’s KEXP BBQ … and hopefully a town near you. Dates after the jump.
