New Video: Cast Spells “Glamorous Glowing”

The official video for “Glamorous Glowing”, the first single from Cast Spells‘s 2009 EP Bright Works and Baton is here.

hmm, yeah… that was…unexpected.  Felt a lot like when I got hyped, clicked the link and saw this for the first time.

Oh well, still a great song, and it was awesome to hear it LIVE when Cast Spells’s Dave Davison performed it with his other band Maps & Atlases last week in Bloomington.


Preview: Maps & Atlases @ the Bishop

Maps & Atlases are coming to Bloomington on Tuesday. They will be delivering amazing sounds at The Bishop with Tera Melos and The Globes. You should be attending.

…If you don’t know who this band is and why you should go…well, just click this ‘tag’ for ‘maps & atlases‘ and read everything I have ever written about them on this blog.

I don’t think I have to say how happy this makes me. And I really don’t think a fancy introduction is necessary either. I will just say that Chris’s hair looks very beautiful, Erin looks adorably intriguing playing the flute, Shiraz…well, is Shiraz, and I have a constant fear of Dave drowning in his own hair by the end of the video.

That being said, enjoy.
