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.


When Particles Collide – “Ego” official video

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:

New video: “The Flattest Of Country” Jesse Pilgrim & The Bonfire

Check out more from Jesse Pilgrim & The Bonfire at Bandcamp.

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.

Contrapposto video – “Cousinfriends”

There’s a whole lot of strange going on in this video for Contrapposto‘s single, “Cousinfriends,” but we like it.

What do you think?

The Rattlesnakes studio session: Serious Business on BTR

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!

Listen to the whole interview and recording session here.

New Sontiago video – “Muscle Car” + Lady Lamb news

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:

Also, in somewhat related news (why? see this video from way back when for a little clarity, or something), the inevitable has finally happened. Lady Lamb The Beekeeper has signed to Ba Da Bing Records. Her album – Ripley Pine – will be out February, 19, 2013, as announced by BrooklynVegan yesterday. Stream the first track (which we think sounds pretty incredible!) from that below.

Kurt Baker on Serious Business on BTR!

Local powerpop superstar Kurt Baker joined the growing list of Maine musicians to hit up Serious Business in NYC to film a studio session for BreakThruRadio. Watch it here!

A Severe Joy on BTR Hear & There

This is some pretty fun news to share.
