Tunes of the Day: Videos Galore!

Said The Whale - Camilo (The Magician)
I can safely say that this is the most adorable music video I've ever seen. The closest contender for the "aww" award (the aww-ard?) is probably Cigarette by Jeremy Fisher.

Zeus - How Does It Feel from the Sounds Like Zeus EP
Just found out (since I don't watch TV) that this song is featured in a Nissan Sentra ad. They've got a new album coming out early next Spring, and I can't wait to hear more of their groovy rock.

Although some of their tracks do make me pause and check my iPod, Zeus definitely has a distinct sound from Jason Collett, which is to say that they've made quite an impression apart from being Collett's backing band, while still retaining the sounds that work.

They also happen to have had quite the cute quips to Alex and I when we were live-tweeting their set at Rifflandia.

If you like what you hear below, here's a link to a free download of their cover of Genesis' That's All. It's a good one.

Side note: Another Canadian indie artist that's been featured in a commercial lately is Hannah Georgas for Walmart. The song, named You've Got A Place Called Home, is free for download off the Walmart store. She's also got a new album coming out soon named This Is Good.
