Watch: Capgun Coup “When I’m Gone”

The lovely people over at Consequence of Sound have premiered a brand new Capgun Coup video for the song “When I’m Gone”. Check it out here!

From Consequence of Sound:

“Turns out that the entire Tyler Chikenelli-directed three-minute video was done with pictures, creating a jerky stop motion-esque feel to the entire deal. The video, consisting mostly of performance shots and a few seconds of a band member getting intimate in a field of leaves in what we can only describe as a Snuggie, feels like a wonderfully amateur cartoon full of weird angles and lots of colors. Of course, the band’s sound suits that DIY sound. In a world of increasingly more prevalent surf punk, the band play the caffeine and Pixie Stick brand of the genre, complete with monotone singing and heavy on the vaguely Caribbean, mostly danceable keys. Seriously, we can’t say it enough: Check this out.”


Supporting his celebrated debut ‘Hustler’s Son’ on Team Love, Jason Boesel kicks off his first U.S. tour with Dawes and Cory Chisel And the Wandering Sons. On February 5, Boesel will take lead on guitar with Dawes onstage as his backing band on all the dates. See below for the full schedule.

Team Love is now giving away a download of Jason’s insatiable jam “I Got The Reason #1” (click for MP3). The song originally surfaced during his touring days with Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band and quickly became a fan favorite. The album version features Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), Blake Mills, Jonathan Wilson, Nik Freitas.

Just last week, Boesel stepped up front for his first two shows in Los Angeles. The first was a Haiti benefit with Jenny Lewis and friends. The second was with Michael Runion and JJAMZ. David Rawlings was there to play back up with Boesel.
