I saw the five-piece band Jesus Sons play at Permanent Records not so long ago, and I greatly enjoyed their performance… If you do a bit of research on them you’ll see that there are in the ‘Bands-to-watch’ list of many blogs, and I would not be surprised if they effectively blow up very soon.  The blog No Cigar Magazine premiered their video for ‘All These Furs’, a song which becomes a sepia-toned road trip to Salvation Mountain, a very curious and mystical art installation in the California desert built by Leonard Knight, who strangely passed away just a few days ago. The Technicolor place seems to be in the middle of nowhere and has been used for several other music videos (the last one I saw being Pony Boy’s ‘Not In This Town’) and this makes me want to visit this place!

The video for ‘All The Furs’ starts with denim and cowboy boots, tour van and motorcycle, a straight road splitting the hot desert, but especially guitars and strong harmonies, which give a better spectral Velvet Underground vibe than anything the Brian Jonestown Massacre has ever written. Should I apologize to Anton Newcombe? I don’t think so! Anyway, the video sounds and looks very real, as it was filmed, directed and edited by photographer Carey Quinton Haider. It has some of this vintage road-trip-in-the-old-west quality, ending with a concert soaked in whiskey and beer, warmed up by campfire, and attended by straw-hat-teeth-missing characters. So check out the video below and Jesus Sons’ stomping-jangling garage rock in a small club near you,… before everyone does.
