It’s time to feature two Seattle bands who are causing some good ruckus, and creating interesting visuals to go with it.
First up is Dark Hip Falls (whom you should remember as Sad Face – name change happened last year), getting some sensational help from dancer and drag artist Cherdonna Shinatra. Enjoy “Cocaine Design,” then catch Dark Hip Falls on Monday at Chop Suey. They’re one of my favorites.
Next is the video for Iska Dhaaf‘s “Everybody Knows,” which was co-written by the group’s drummer, Benjamin Verdoes. Oh, and it also includes the dramatic debut of Ben Haggerty, aka Macklemore. I saw this band open for Jagwar Ma last year and liked their energy. The duo’s fans went ballistic. On March 13th Iska Dhaaf releases their first album, Even the Sun Will Burn, with a show at Neumos.
