A combination of great things is about to happen. On October 23rd, Maxwell’s of Hoboken will host HIP Video Promo’s 10th Anniversary CMJ Party which will feature not only a set by Neil Nathan, but the debut of his animated music video for “Highways” directed by Postage, Inc. The party will celebrate Hip Video Promo’s ten years of championing over 900 videos by the best independent artists and bands. They’ve worked with She And Him, Blitzen Trapper, Metric, Of Montreal and Pearl Jam just to name a few.
Neil Nathan is no stranger to making music videos. His most recent, “California Run” co-stars his former roommate, Rosario Dawson. His cover of ELO’s “Do Ya,” which was also featured on the Californication soundtrack, has been viewed 20,000 times on YouTube. “Highways,” along with “California Run” and “Do Ya” can be found on Nathan’s latest full-length, The Distance Calls which was released in August. The album was produced by The Go’s Bobby Harlow and combines the talents of Dean Fertita (The Dead Weather, QOTSA), Kenny Tudrick and Joey Mazzola (Detroit Cobras), John Krautner (The Go), and Ross Westerbur (Deadstring Brothers). The album effortlessly merges jangly pop rock with Nathan’s mellower singer/songwriter side. With a dash of NYC glitter and some good old Detroit fuzz and stomp, it showcases a musician clearly influenced by the ‘70s (without being cliché).
HIP Video Promo has worked with such talents as Johnny Cash, Elvis Costello, and "Weird Al" Yankovic, as well being on the ground floor with artists like Death Cab For Cutie, The Kooks, Bloc Party, The Shins, and Of Montreal.
