Sam Martin

You may remember late-2000s indie rock band Capgun Coup, who hailed from Omaha and shared the stage with many other bands from that scene (Bright Eyes, Tilly and the Wall, etc) during their existence. Their singer, Sam Martin, is now taking the solo route and will release a new album, A Notion in an Ocean, this fall via Make Believe Recordings. One of that album's singles, "Bye Bye," is on the more chilled-out side of Sam's songwriting and it's just been given a quirky music video which includes Sam fully clothed in a bubble bath. The song is already stuck in our head. The video premieres in this post.

Listen and watch, along with the album's tracklist, below...

Wow the comments I'm seeing on here sound ignorant as hell…aren't there any people with brains in Brooklyn anymore? Or is it all 100lb hipster men that look like 12 year olds that talk shit online because it's the only place they won't get checked?

I'm not sure what you are so angry about, but from my reading you sound a bit like you are describing yourself 5:37. I hope you have a good rest of the afternoon.
