This was not the sound I was expected when I tuned in to the newest video from UK band Dry the River. My only experience with them had been catching them at the Spotify House a couple of years ago during SXSW, and that performance was stripped down and folky. The gloves are off with “Everlasting Light,” and while it’s a bit more aggressive, the push is not unwelcome.
So, we had this wonderful plan to write this post with lots of beautifully-shot videos to supplement the mediocre camera-phone videos we posted last Monday. It’s proved to be difficult. Our hosting service only allows embedding from certain sites, and most of the videos aren’t found on the approved list. We posted what we could, and linked to the rest of what we wanted to show you. We apologize for the minor inconvenience of opening a new tab and hope you’ll take the time to click. A big thanks to Spotify and Dig for Fire for creating such wonderful concert spaces and videos, as well as DoStuff’s Justin Schaffer.
We started editing photos from SXSW and realized we took 864 shots. M|H thinks that number shows restraint on our part, but it’s still a lot of photos to comb through and edit. To keep you from having to wait, we put every single photo into a two minute and fifty-three second video for you. Check back for edited shots!
