Soundcheck: The Prids


Music

Matt Carney
The Prids survived more social shake-ups than most families. Fifteen years, a handful of city-to-city moves, a marriage and a divorce ago, there were just David Frederickson and Mistina La Fave, who started making music together in a little corner of Missouri.

VOTD: Bon's away

Watch ‘Bon Iver’’s gorgeous-est track, ‘Holocene.’

“I can see for miles, miles, miles,” Justin Vernon coos three different times during “Holocene.” Director Nabil first syncs this line up in the below video with a beautiful wide shot of what seems to be Icelandic landscape. Everything seems infinite in that little moment.

Watch as a bucktoothed kid in a hooded sweater explores the beautiful country outside of his home.

VOTD: The Decemberists watch the end of the world

The super-lit folk-rockers get inspired by DFW.

Something tells me that David Foster Wallace would’ve really enjoyed this reimagining of the game of Eschaton, one of the most hilarious and creative scenes from “Infinite Jest,” his 1,000+ page novel that’s full of them. Simultaneously a huge Decemberists and DFW fan, director Michael Schur (TV’s “Parks and Recreation”) is the big winner here. Read what he told NPR, then watch below.

“The Decemberists are my favorite band, and ‘Infinite Jest’ is my favorite book,” Schur said. “This was tantamount to telling me I had just won two simultaneous Powerball lottery jackpots, on my birthday, which was also Christmas.”
