Premiere: New Video from Sleepy Hollow's Guilty Giraffe

"Doom Song"

Guilty Giraffe, from Sleepy Hollow, NY, have a lot in common with their Mint 400 label mates. They are completely DIY -- producing, mixing, and mastering their own records. Where they may deviate slightly from many of the bands on the label is in the intensity and sheer volume of their sound. "They are, by far, my loudest band on the label," Mint 400 honcho Neil Sabatino told me. I can be all for loudness. My love of Dinosaur Jr. and My Bloody Valentine is well-documented here; and, like those bands, Guilty Giraffe don't necessarily pursue volume for its own sake

Today, Mathew McGinnis (guitar / vocals) and Felipe Reis (drums) are giving us the video for "Doom Song." It's the first single from their upcoming Server Error; and, even at just two minutes, it shows that the band have a sense of dynamics. "Doom Song" combines elements of post-hardcore and metal with shoegaze and prog to be both blistering and dreamy.

Check out "Doom Song" below, and look for Server Error on May 5th from Mint 400 Records.
