New vid from Harpooner, plus tour dates


Bloomington week continues on the blog with this new video premiere. We got ahold of a new vid for "Printed Boxes" from Bloomington's Harpooner, a psychy/poppy/'70s lovin' four-piece prepping to set off on a fairly extensive fall tour to support their February 7'' Speed, mastered at B-town studio Magnetic South. The video, produced by ShutterShock Productions, perfectly mimics how it feels to go to shows in basements, bars and fields in Bloomington — kaleidoscopes and Christmas lights and all. It reminds me of climbing over mattresses and discarded desktop monitors to get a better look at the band in the corner of the stranger's basement I'm in, and of setting up the stages at Culture Shock in Dunn Meadow every spring. Basically, it's making me really nostalgic for Bloomington.

Their tour includes an Indianapolis date at Westgate on the 28 with Faux Paw and Chieftan. A full list of tour dates is below.
