Another New Video from Big Grams

April 7th, 2016, 2:00 pm by Greg

Just last week, Big Grams – the collaboration between Phantogram and Big Boi – released a pair of animated music videos.

Now they’re back with another new live-action vid directed by longtime Outkast video collaborator Bryan Barber, and they’re gettin’ their Furry on. On their Skrillex-aided “Drum Machine,” Redd Wolf (Sarah Barthel), Dabs the Squirrel (Josh Carter) and Purp (Big Boi) go clubbin’ and crashin’ the party…

Simultaneously, Big Grams have also released a new “Drum Machine” re-mix EP featuring five fresh takes on the tune from Chris Lake, Slaptop, Fareoh, Melé and Naderi, now available for purchase or stream.

Yes, it’s the official video for the Flaming Lips / Phantogram collaboration, “You Lust.” The seriously psychedelic track runs in excess of 13 minutes on the Lips’ new album The Terror, but the band has apparently edited it down to four minutes for the video, which features the Lips’ Wayne Coyne, Phantogram’s Sarah Barthel, a gaggle of girls, a frog, a monkey, futuristic sci-fi experiments and lots of nudity.

Last Friday night, Railbird was gearing up for their first national tour with a new album, a CD release party and tons of infectious enthusiasm from the band and its musical heart, Sarah Pedinotti.

Headlining the triple-bill at Saratoga Springs’ premier music nightclub, Railbird was the primary reason that the Putnam Den was nearly filled to capacity by time they took the stage. With a $6 entry fee, nothing happening in the region could even come close to matching the quality of the three bands for anywhere near that ticket price.

This time out, long-time fans noticed a reshuffling of the band’s personnel with Railbird’s original drummer Chris Carey taking over electric bass duties, while bassist James Gascoyne instead manned the electric guitar alongside the band’s premier guitarist Chris Kyle.

Occupying Railbird’s drum chair that night was Jeremy Gustin, the energetic drummer from the triple-bill’s opening band and tour-mates, the Rex Complex. And standing off to the far side of the stage was Phantagram’s lovely singer, Sarah Barthel, who provided back-up vocals and electronic synth-sounds to the band’s mix.
