Needle Points on tour w/ mewithoutYou, made an LP with Dr. Dog frontman (video)

Needle Points

mewithoutYou are on tour now celebrating their 15th anniversary, and playing setlists that pull from every single album they’ve ever done. They’ve got some cool openers on this tour too, including Into It. Over It., WHY?’s Yoni Wolf, and mwY’s Philly neighbors Needle Points, who open TONIGHT’s (10/18) NYC show at Knitting Factory (tickets).

Last month, Needle Points released their new album Feel Young (NeedLove Records), which was produced by another Philly staple, Dr. Dog frontman Scott McMicken (who also played guitar and keyboards on the LP). That album’s song “Corazon” now has a video, which premieres in this post. Here’s what they tell us about it:

Needle Points set out with the idea for the “Corazon” video with our very talented friends, Vincent Ortega, Jennifer Vance and Raymos Ventura in the Spring of 2016. The video was filmed slowly over the course of the summer in Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Stockholm and parts of New Jersey. I think we were very hungry during the shoots, hence all the food scenes. I’ll sum it up by saying good food, good times and good friends.
