Film At 11: Paleface

Paleface was a fixture on the downtown-NYC anti-folk scene in the early ’90s and put out two major-label records before his alcohol abuse almost killed him on tour with the Breeders in 1997. After cleaning up and meeting the likes of the Moldy Peaches and Regina Spektor, Paleface resumed his recording career via a number of new releases on small record companies and his own label. Last year, Paleface (now the name of the duo featuring him and his drummer girlfriend Monica Samalot) issued the excellent The Show Is On The Road on Ramseur Records (the onetime home to the Avett Brothers). MAGNET is proud to premiere the brand new video for “New York, New York.” Check out Paleface on tour throughout the spring and summer.

    There aren’t very many people in this world that I love more than Paleface. This video makes me cry a little and feel sort of homesick. It is so sweet and pretty perfect.

    It really sounds and looks amazing. It’s good to see NYC and old friends. It’s enough to make anyone homesick. Thank you both for what you do.
