New video Featured on CMJ

The Upsidedown – Something Good from The Upsidedown on Vimeo.

Check out our Exclusive Video Premier on!
This video was shot and edited by Jsun’s brother Justin.

“In part an homage to the 1979 NYC gang movie The Warriors, the video for “Something Good” features a local Portland DJ introducing the track and the band’s members (and their friends) going on an epic chase in search of—what else?—something good. They run through the streets of Portland’s Chinatown in fur coats, carrying baseball bats. (What, you wanted it to make sense?) Over an off-color montage of guitar strings (a reference to the film Velvet Goldmine, another influence) and old black-and-white film clips of bustling city crowds, lead singer Jsun Atoms croons, “Give me something good / I’ve been misunderstood.” The video’s references might be lost on some, but the song that accompanies them is worth a listen—laid-back and dreamy, there’s a decent chance it will make you feel better about… well, whatever it is that’s bothering you. Here’s to good things everywhere.”

We just released our latest record, Human Destination, on 180 gram 12″ vinyl. The package features the artwork of Robert Hardgrave, and now that we have it in this LARGE format you can really see how amazing it is. We keep seeing new things in it. We even decided to take our name off the cover so it didn’t distract from experiencing the art. If you are a Robert Hardgrave fan you will get another little surprise on the inside. This is the perfect companion to the record. Put on the headphones and enjoy the eye candy too.

The package also includes the full length version on CD just in case you don’t have a copy you want to play the analog vs. digital game with your friends!

Select Destination:

If you are in or near Los Angeles, you can also get your hands on it at Origami Records and we will have them at our live shows.

Our 12″ vinyl release show for Human Destination will be Friday June 25th at Someday Lounge.
