Say Hi Video and Tour

Say Hi - "One, Two ... One" from Barsuk Records on Vimeo.
Say Hi is Eric Elbogen. His latest effort, the brilliant Oohs & Aahs, was released on Barsuk this past spring. Eric has been hitting the road extensively in support of Oohs & Aahs through most of 2009 with the ever-evolving cast of musicians that make up Say Hi on the road. The road warriors began another tour recently opening for fellow Barsuk artist David Bazan. (Eric is pulling double duty on this touring as a member of Bazan's backing band!)

In honor of the extensive coast-to-coast tour, Say Hi is offering up the new video for "One, Two ... One", directed by Drew Norton, that finds Eric hunted by the obsessive, beautiful, and cruel goddess Diana.

Hopewell "Island"

Hopewell "Island" from Painless Surgery on Vimeo.
After a screening of the 1971 Japanese counter culture film "Throw Away Your Books, Let's Go Into The Streets" by director Shuji Terayama, I realized I wanted to make a video for Hopewell inspired by what I had just seen. I had a need to make a non-pop video and teaming up with Hopewell was the perfect match.

For a free download of "Stranger" from Hopewell's new release along with a profile of the band, please visit:
