Typically this is when we meet the band for the first time, but we've been friends with James and we've been documenting his other band, of Montreal for the last year. He recruited the help of Davey Pierce and Dottie Alexander who've been touring with him recently.

First of all, James has sweet kicks. Secondly, we were restricted to this part of the loading dock since the piano wasn't very mobile, but some dudes decided to pick the same day to replace the facade a few units over. We started and stopped about fifteen times, but eventually decided to allow their hammering and clanging to join in.

Cars, kids, squirrels and helicopters tried to stand in our way, but eventually we were able to get a take in without interference. This band has loads of personality. It felt like we were old pals after just a few minutes. For this first song we were headed to Founder's Garden on UGA's north campus, but we only made it to the outer walls before we decided on a spot.

The hex against us continued as we ran out of daylight. In fact, our lens fell off of the camera on one of the takes. Why don't more people cover Genesis? When I think about Genesis I think about the story of how they invented the moving light (intelligent lighting). More bands should invent stuff.

It was getting dark quickly and the band had an interview with the local college radio station immediately following, so we had to push through these as quickly as possible, but you wouldn't notice from their performance. So simple. Straightforward. Three beautiful girls making beautiful music. Also it was still drizzling, so our friend Dan Donahue volunteered to hold a giant umbrella over the band. Thanks Dan.

Their shrouded faces remind me so much of Caroline from Chairlift ( http://www.athenssoundies.com/videos/44 ). Little Kings gave us refuge from the rain. I would never want to own a bar, but if I did it would be a lot like Little Kings.

If you've ever seen one of the famed spy cars riding around town and wondered who made them, it was one of these guys, Brian Smith. He also makes the metal insect sculptures you'll see in the video. Dan Geller has pioneered several electro-pop projects, the latest being Ruby Isle. It was his remix of a Boulevard song (Benji's former band) that led to the formation of The Gold Party. Benji wrote this song for his fiancee, Kim. Brian's garden made an excellent setting for this SOUNDIE and we're super appreciative of the guys for lugging that organ out of the house.

Very early in the AM we caravanned to one of our favorite Athenian spectacles... the J&J Flea Market.

Holiday Shores bought some knick knacks and a peace at the flea market.

We love Brantley Jones. He's a friend of ours and former Athenian who's been in NYC attending film school. He was back in Athens for a few days and we were fortunate enough shoot a song with him. We went over the the cement factory with a group of his friends and collaborators and Brantley chose the stairs that lead to nothing (presumably for loading cement) as their stage.

Telenovela surprised us and came along with Brantley Jones. They are awesome and NPR has shown them some major love. Also, I will always think of this version of Blackbird from now on.

For "Grown Man" we walked up to the projectionists' catwalk. Jessica surveyed her surroundings while her dress scraped the grate floor below. It was short and sweet and I hope it was a nice break for Jeff Tobias (We vs the Shark) who was hard at work below.

We first heard about Jessica when we saw her in a live video made by our good friend Tim Nackashi. It featured her and the Avett Brothers playing in their bus. It was only fitting that we met on similar terms. Jessica wanted to get out of the blazing sun for a bit, so we retreated to the art-laden lobby of our local art house cinema, Cine'. As we packed up she asked us if the 40 Watt (club) was strict on IDs. Hard to imagine such a soulful voice (and lyrics) coming from a girl who's not old enough to legally drink.

Here you can see Andrew looks like a demon straight from hell. He's warning the poor sinners with torches dipped in veggie oil. Thankfully no one was hurt. The Packway Handle Band told us they were planning a live recording outside Jittery Joe’s roasting house. We thought it sounded like a great opportunity for a Soundie. As the crowd grew more dense, the band got into full Packway attire. We came up with a plan for their grand entrance and after everyone had a few beers in them it was time to let the festivities begin.

They wanted to capture the energy of the song live at the roaster, but this time outside and accompanied by a keg of beer.

The Skirts are friends of ours and we had the opportunity to film their CD release show for “All of Us in Our Night” last year at the 40 Watt. We’ve been pushing to do Soundies with them ever since. We were finally able to steal them away for an afternoon and chose to take them to Memorial Park, home of our local zoo, “Bear Hollow”. Although we didn’t encounter any bears, the guys managed to make enemies with a few turkeys. Enjoy this stripped down version of "Soft Pedals"

For this one Phillip decided to harass the ducks instead of turkeys.

The original plan was to plug a keyboard into a guitar amp. That didn't work out, so we headed over to our friends at Chick Piano on Clayton St. to ask if they'd have us. They did. Our pianist found himself in a room full of pianos and that's how it started.

Agora, right down the street from Chick Piano, gave us an amazing array of backgrounds and colors to set Mike up against. This song was recorded with a piano, but we thought it'd be fun to shoot it with a guitar.

Although it's hard to see or hear it in the first song we did - it was actually pouring rain that day, so we had to pick a room in Lera's house for this song.
