We’ve long admired the intimate, live music filmmaking that the folks at Yours Truly have been putting out for several years now. We’ve recently had the opportunity to work with them filming and editing videos in Seattle.
The first to be released is this gorgeous song from the good people of Pure Bathing Culture (whom we’ve had the fortune of filming before, first as part of Vetiver’s band at the first Huichica Music Festival and second as part of Richard Swift’s band at the Huichica Music Festival the following year!)
Tacoma band Goldfinch has a new album out—and it’s being officially released at the upcoming CATHEDRALS Tacoma. We captured them performing one of the songs for the new album—accompanied by an original dance piece—in the historic Immanuel Presbyterian. Also this video from the same night of their cover of Perfume Genius’ Hood:

We at The Art Dept. love food. Even more so now that one of us is pregnant. And we’re really digging this food truck and street food revolution happening up and down the West Coast. Truly amazing chefs are putting their hearts and souls into these accessible mobile marvels for the masses.
So, when our friend Jace—the musician behind one of our favorite NW bands Fort Union—approached us to create a logo for his brand new Portland food truck, he had us at “fried.” Our creative juices began eagerly flowing (along with a fair amount of saliva.)
Spaceworks Tacoma is a project to activate empty storefronts in downtown Tacoma with art and creative enterprise.
Spaceworks recently awarded Goldfinch—one of Tacoma’s finest local bands—a three-month artists’ residency in a Hill Top practice space next to Fulcrum Gallery.
Goldfinch plans to nest down and begin recording their new album during this time as well as open up their space to live shows and Art Walk events.
We will be shooting a series of short videos for Cult Tacoma documenting Goldfinch’s Spaceworks residency.
In this most recent episode (above), we have a christening of the space—headlined by one of our favorite 2011 Doe Bay Fest bands OK Sweetheart and also including live painting by Tacoma artist Briton Sukys, a hilarious bit of storytelling from his wife Megan Sukys (of KUOW) and some lovely pickin’ and whistlin’ by Grrr Animals‘ Mike Weller.

Happy New Year!
