Video Premier : Le Printemps – “Real Eyes”

Video Premier : “Real Eyes” by Le Printemps

Remember the Bird Day? Basically one of Buffalo’s few psychedelic disco bands. Well they moved far far away a couple of years ago and have recently entered the realm of deceased bands. Fortunately, their members are still making music. Drummer and vocalist Jon Riggie, former member of the Bird Day, recently started up a new project with guitarist Ben Steinmetz known as Le Printemps. Although the duo is based out of Portland, Oregon, they’ve recruited local artists Maltdisney and Spencer MacPherson of ToatsOrig to producer their new music video for a song called “Real Eyes,” which has some sort of trippy grunge thing happening that I can’t exactly put my finger on. Beware, the psychedelia in this video could probably cause caustic seizures in some, but if you’re in the mood for an acid-flashback then by all means, sit back and absorb “Real Eyes.” —cory perla
