East Nashville singer/songwriter Dohse prepares for the release of the Old Roads EP, which was produced and engineered by J. Hall (Young The Giant, Saving Abel) and will be issued September 9. Until then, he’s made a new video for “Fireworks & Lead,” the second single off his debut EP. The clip, like the song, is a simple representation of strong emotion, as it shows Dohse playing his acoustic guitar in various outdoor scenes, swearing he’ll fix his mistakes. We are proud to premiere the video today on magnetmgazine.com. Watch it below.
Portland indie rockers Sunset Valley are back from the ’90s with a new video for crunchy song “Jackass Crusher.” MAGNET is honored to premiere the video, which, like the song, is a fun trip through rock ‘n’ roll heaven, as kids seem to have taken over an empty island. A secret tape is found hidden in the sand, but that’s not the only secret the island holds. Check out the video below.
Ray & Remora’s 1994 features such covers as Pavement’s “Gold Soundz,” Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” and Dinosaur Jr.’s “Feel The Pain.” Now the L.A.-based duo has released a video for Superchunk’s “Like A Fool.” The clip takes place in an open field in the wilderness and features the two band members lighting fireworks and frolicking, as well as a dog licking peanut butter off of Rays face. Check out the video below. Says Ray of the song and clip, “Basically, we love Superchunk. The whole 1994 covers concept came after we recorded this version of “Like A Fool” from Foolish—an album I listened to obsessively when it came out in 1994. The Superchunk version just kills me every time I hear it. As for the video, well, I also really love my dog Whisky. For reasons I’m not sure I understand, I envisioned a video that was a full four minutes of Whisky licking peanut butter off of my face in super slow motion. Fortunately, Remora and director Jennifer Pearl (Visum Creatives) convinced me otherwise!” We are proud to premiere the clip today on magnetmagazine.com. Watch it below.
Jayk Gallagher and Lauren Lakis, both a onetime romantic couple as well as fairly accomplished actors, comprise L.A.-based indie-pop band Hobart W. Fink. Today, MAGNET is honored to premiere their new video for “The Fight/We Lie,” from Back And Forth Forever. The clip is a rather sad story about a couple fighting and being unhappy. Scattered animations make the video a little brighter, and the end definitely gets messy. Check out the video below.

Almost a year after the release of Dream River, sly-voiced singer/songwriter Bill Callahan has released a cosmic new video for “Javelin Unlanding.” The clip is a hallucinogenic trip through space, deserts and volcanoes. Human features are given to inanimate landscapes, and there’s even a Callahan-faced moon surveying the world around it. Check out the video below.
