Photos: The Big Sleep @ The Fort (Music Video Shoot)

The Big Sleep @ The Fort - December 8, 2011

Last week, Colin and I had the opportunity to bear witness to Brooklyn's The Big Sleep film footage for a new music video, in anticipation for their upcoming album Nature Experiments (out January 31, 2012 on Frenchkiss Records [digital] and Goodnight Records [physical]). It was special not only because of the intimacy of watching a really great band perform in a relatively small loft studio, but also it happened to be the same studio where my band recorded our first full length album (yes, a shameless self promotion... not common on these pages).

The Fort in Bushwick, Brooklyn has long held the reputation for being a great sounding affordable studio for indie bands in New York City, but this video shoot marked the beginning of what is hopefully a trend of killer bands performing intimate in-studio shows for fans, and having it all filmed and recorded in pristine quality. Take a look at more photos below, and be on the lookout for The Big Sleep's new video and album... their new songs sounded sick.
