The new video by Matt Kiven is called “Insignificance”, directed by John Carchietta. It’s a song taken from Kivel’s latest album on Woodsist Records called Days Of Being Wild, perhaps titled as a way to tell his children or grandchildren “your old man here was wild 20 to 40 years ago. You want proof? Have a listen.” Kids might ask “what is listening?” but that’s another topic, another time but right now, have a listen to this in modern times.

Kivel fans will be able to see him in the coming weeks, and they’re not just dates in California too, for he’ll be in North Carolina in September:

Kevin Morby is doing quite well as a solo artist, and with the release of his Harlem River album on Woodsist, he is showing the spirit of someone who has a love and passion for music. Now you can see how hw transforms that into a visual medium with a clip made for the song “If You Leave And If You Marry”, where everything is seen through the eyes of old super 8mm film cameras, giving the viewer and listener thoughts of yesteryear.

Morby has a small handful of shows set up in the next few weeks, including two shows in Chicago at Old Town School Of Folk Music, attend if you can:

February 22… San Francisco, CA (The Chapel) *
February 23… Santa Cruz, CA (The Crepe Place) *
