Eyelids released new single/video (watch), ready new LP produced by Peter Buck & RSD 7″ w/ Gary from The Cribs
Portland’s Eyelids, which features The Decemberists‘ John Moen, and former Guided by Voices member Chris Slusarenko, have a new single out, “Slow it Goes,” which is the kind of relaxed, catchy guitar pop you’d expect from these two. We’re premiering its music video, directed by Slusarenko and John Clark. It was inspired by weird ’60s German variety shows and is full of face paint, go-go dancers (choreographed by The Dead Set Lead Society) and nonstop camera movement. You can check it out below.
In other news, Eyelids have a bunch of irons in the fire, music wise. They are currently working on their new LP, again produced by REM’s Peter Buck. They’ve also got a Record Store Day 7″ on the way too featuring guest vocals from Gary Jarman of The Cribs that is “projected post-punk that is written from the fictitious mind of a 17 year old.” Keep an eye out for those.
