Video Mix for Get Bent!

A few weeks back, I finally put together a little video playlist for the great Get Bent!, compiling a handful of my favorite performances, the sort that I return to at times for a number of reasons.  You can enjoy the playlist below, along with the original info via Get Bent!:



Craig Oliver is the man behind Volar Records. He’s responsible for putting out some stellar records (Fishage, Poisoner, Ese Culito, and Infinite Sun to name a few). We could rattle off the rest of his accomplishments, or you can read for yourself in our interview, “Volar Records Takes Flight,” where he talks about his fascination with film. In response, we asked him to create a guest mix of music videos, whether staged or live, for us to share. Check out our other guest mixes here. Tracklist available after the cut. 

So, I thought about breaking these down song by song, detailing the history behind their own personal importance to me and what not. Instead, I’ll try and keep it short. These are all favorite songs of mine, and just about my favorite performances that I resort back to from time to time, all perfect (to me, at least) encapsulations of these particular artists that happened to be captured on film. Perhaps I’ll extrapolate more later, but for now, here’s a look my own weird gravitation to a few somewhat more disparate acts, some of this going back a number of years. I wish everyone was as good as anyone involved here. --co/volar records
