Video of the Moment #1987: M. Ward

By on Friday, 15th January 2016 at 6:00 pm

Portland, Oregon singer/songwriter/producer M. Ward will be releasing his 8th album in March, and this time, he’s fully embracing the weather of his hometown in his new album’s title. The press release for ‘More Rain’ quips, “Ward has made a true gotta-stay-indoors, rainy-season record that looks upwards through the weather while reflecting on his past”. Ha. His new single ‘Girl from Conejo Valley’ (Conejo Valley being a location west of Los Angeles, oddly) now has its own music video. Naturally, it was filmed (or at least appears to be) in the place in the song’s name, and it stars an unusual, motley series of characters – including a laser-y red-eyed rabbit – to visually tell the song’s story. Watch the video below.

‘More Rain’ will be released on the 4th of March on Merge Records and will include collaborations with R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, Neko Case, k.d. lang, The Secret Sisters and Joey Spampinato of NRBQ.
