We produced this video in collaboration with Aly Spaltro (Lady Lamb) and BreakThru Radio. Thanks to Jeff Beam, SPACE Gallery, WCYY, Bart & Greg’s, Bull Moose, and everybody else who helped out or let us film on those whirlwind couple of days back in March.
Our favorite rock ‘n roll duo from Bangor, When Particles Collide, returns to the stage and the screen (they seem to have a thing for choreographed dance moves) with this brand new video for their track, “Ego.” Watch it now:
Olas is more than just a band: it’s music, dance, performance, and now a film! Debuting at SPACE Gallery on December 15, Olas The Film is a portrait of the music, the dance, the people, the lives, the partnerships and the friendships of Olas. Check out the trailer below, and mark your calendar to be there to see the film in its entirety, followed by a performance by the group.
So many of our favorite Maine bands have managed to make their way down to NYC and found time to do sessions at Serious Business Music for BreakThru Radio: Kurt Baker, Sunset Hearts, Brenda, The Milkman’s Union, Marie Stella, etc… and now The Rattlesnakes! Watch the video below!

Today, VICE premiered the video for Sontiago‘s song, “Muscle Car,” featuring Therese Workman from Oh My Goodness (who we’ve been harassing forever to play a show, and will continue to do so). It’s a fun track and the video is just a big old Portland love fest for us with so many familiar faces making appearances (set partially at Bubba’s Sulky Lounge, light up disco dancefloor and all). The whole thing was directed by the amazing David Meiklejohn (of My Heart Is An Idiot fame). Watch it now:
This is some pretty fun news to share. While I was in Maine for the recent week of HillyTown shows, I caught up with José Ayerve, aka A Severe Joy, to shoot a performance video in Portland for BreakThruRadio‘s video series, Hear & There. Check out the video of the song “Inside Out and Hand Grenades” below (and get the song itself here.)
Portland roots band This Way return from a 9-month break from local shows with a headlining gig this Saturday (2/25) at Empire. Have you seen their new stage yet? We haven’t but are curious to see how the venue changed things up – from what we heard a few months back the plan sounded very promising. Joining them will be Boston’s increasingly popular Americana act, Kingsley Flood, as well as one of Portland’s finest bluegrass bands, Tricky Britches. This Way teamed up with Jacob Perry of My Name Productions to craft this brand new video for their track, “Take It All (Or Leave It All Behind)”, shot in downtown Portland and Peaks Island. Check it out below.
Watch the video on Youtube, and download the band’s album, Goodbye Forever, for name-your-own-price at Bandcamp. Tickets to this weekend’s show are on sale now for $7.
