Songwriter/keyboardist Paul Jenkins, producer Wes McCanse and multi-instrumentalist J. Lugo Miller are ...music video?, an trio based in Tucson, AZ. They are knee deep in electronics which are used to create lush harmonies embedded in slow grooves that go well Jenkins' dreamy vocals. They have released two albums and their new single I'm Afraid Of Everything b/w feelgooddesperation is a post-rock meets melodic shoegaze musings two-some.
I'm Afraid Of Everything slowly pulls in the listener by building chords and harmonics into an elegant tour along the everyday horrors that surround the song's unwilling hero. Flip-side feelgooddesperation is a mash-up of sorts. Their own song postrockfeelgoodsongofthemillenium, an instrumental, is mixed with the words of Desperation, a song by fellow Tucson band Musica Obscura.
With this single ...music video? shows that quiet desperation is the Tucson way nowadays.
