Music Video: Nap Eyes – ‘Roll It’

Music Video: Nap Eyes – ‘Roll It’

May 10, 2017 | Posted in: Blog, Nap Eyes, News 0

Maybe you’ve been wondering what ever happened to puppet Nap Eyes? Had Nigel poisoned his friends with his green science potion? And what about when he drank the potion himself? Was he able to transcend his dimensional bounds? Maybe you yourself have experimented with science, or drugs? Maybe you’ve let your own puppet spirit run wild through quiet neighbourhoods at dusk looking for an angry fix, or a starry dynamo, or a conveniently located fresh baked pie?

Maybe you don’t know what I’m talking about and should watch the Nap Eyes official video for ‘Click Clack’:

and then the brand new EXCITING CONCLUSION in ‘Roll It’:

All Ages Event

This space is physically accessible, the bathrooms are up a short flight of 3 stairs.

We recognize and acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded, unsurrendered Algonquin-Anishinabe territory. We also ask that attendees be kind humans, and leave antiquated attitudes at the door, including but not limited to a zero tolerance for racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, ableism, and you’re-not-my-vibe-ism. We’re here for a good time, not a WTF time.

In addition Steven Lambke will be performing as part of the Festival on Thursday August 18th at 5 Arlington at 5pm. This very special event is a book launch for Ian Roy’s new collection of stories, Meticulous, Sad and Lonely.

More information is readily available and visually stimulating at http://www.arboretumfestival.com/

After long waits, strange journeys, and far wanderings it’s finally here: Nap Eyes – Thought Rock Fish Scale will be released Friday February 5th! And to spare those last few days of anticipation and uncertainty and discomfort, we are happy to say “Peace! There is no need! Listen here my friends, and may you be soothed by the listening!”

We couldn’t be more excited. This record has been deep burrowed into our hearts and minds since Nigel first sent it our way so many months back. To our ears it’s a stone-cold classic. Ian Kehoe told me Lion In Chains was the best song to have yet been released by our humble label. I, more politic, avoid such statements as “best” and “all-time favourite” and “absolute” – though they beat strong in my veins and struggle against the teeth. These are wise songs, all.

Orders received through our mailorder shop are shipping now! And are special Thought Rock Fish Scale + Whine Of The Mystic package deal is available until Sunday February 7.

Nap Eyes – Thought Rock Fish Scale (YC-024) LP/CD/Digital.
