Related videos from fellow bros.

Two good buddies of ours have released some really good videos for some really great tunes recently.

This phenomenon first occured when our dear friend LANGOR [formerly of the notorious Sw!ms] released a limited edition flexidisc single featuring production from our own Nick & Thomas. Joe plays on the disc, too! We hope this is the first of many things to come from this legend. It was released this past Friday and it'll be available on iTunes and Prairie Queen Records soon!

Only moments later our buddy ROAR released the title song from his 2010 EP "I Can't Handle Change" [similarly engineered and mixed by Nick Krill!]. He has a new record I'm Not Here To Make Friends coming out in 2012 featuring more Krill production and playing from most of us on it. From what we've heard it will change the face of pop music. Until that comes out, keep yourself entertained with this banger and buy / download the record HERE.

New song from a soundtrack we scored in the last few months.

So while we continue to "get the artwork ready" for our new album, we have been keeping busy with a number of projects. One of them was scoring the soundtrack to Benjamin Bloodwell's film, Biba! One Island, 879 Votes. It's a wonderful documentary and you should see it if you get the chance!

If the film isn't playing anywhere near you, you can do the next best thing and listen to the music we created for it, as we will be releasing the album digitally for free in December. In the meantime, here is an sneak peek at one of the tracks!

Teen Men

Teen Men - Fall Out A Tree from Jubadaba on Vimeo.

Over the last month I have been collaborating with filmmaker Albert Birney on a musical / visual project we are calling Teen Men.

The project was kind of birthed out of the fact that we were both coming off of really long and intense projects (The Spinto Band’s new LP "Shy Pursuit" for myself, and for Albert, his first feature film “The Beast Pageant.”) and we both needed to work on something spontaneous and make something that was more of a gut musical / visual thing than a really labored over project.

The impulsiveness and intuitive approach enabled us to produce work that is more pure and instinctual than I have made before. In the end, the experiences and skill sets we each developed during our prolonged projects allowed us to forget about the technical aspects of either the recording or filming and enabled us to present more visceral work.

We collaborated on both the musical and video aspect of Teen Men…with myself taking the lead in the studio and Albert taking the lead with the video.

The song also features Philadelphia musician Rick Flom playing piano, and Artist Catharine Maloney on vocals.

Special thanks to Gretchen Lohse for helping with the video too.
