Do yourself a favor and check out this animated music video by Jillian and the Giants, an indie-rock band from Tucson, AZ. The video for Mr. Airplane, the title track from their debut album, was directed by Sundance Award Winning filmmaker Jason Willis and it mirrors the soothing melody of the song quite well. This video was a nice surprise first thing in the morning. It lead me to listening to their album in its entirety and I'm proud to say that I am now a fan of Jillian and the Giants. They incorporate a variety of styles and the album is connected by the mesmerizing voice of Jillian Besset and the complimentary musicianship of her "giants", Julius Schlosburg (drums), Paul Radek (bass), and Chris Callahan (guitar). There's a haunting a capella song, White Knuckle, which is probably my favorite track from the album. I can't wait to hear it live at their Phoenix album release show at The Lost Leaf with House of Stairs and Katie Haverly on November 6th.
