Simple Music Video Series: American Aquarium's "Jacksonville" and "Northern Lights"

Posted by on Fri, Aug 24, 2012 at 5:10 PM

When asking BJ Barham of American Aquarium about his then-recent recording session with Jason Isbell, an immediate smile came over an otherwise exhausted face: "Fucking amazing!" Not much more needed to be said.

In today's session, we present two songs from the Isbell-produced album Burn. Flicker. Die., released this week on Last Chance Records. "Jacksonville" and "Northern Lights" are two of the quieter numbers from the album; at times, these are the songs that suffer most at American Aquarium shows. Here's to hoping the large crowd expected Saturday night at the Lincoln Theatre will pause for the quiet ones…

American Aquarium plays the Lincoln Theatre (sponsored by our friends at New Raleigh & Jameson) Saturday along with Goner and House of Fools. Tickets are $10–$12, and the show is at 9 p.m.. American Aquarium will also be playing two day parties during Hopscotch this year: Saturday at Hibernian and Sunday at Slims for the Hopscotch Hangover.


The purpose of the Independent Weekly's Simple Music Video Series is to capture local and touring musicians who we feel are producing something special. The hope is to capture something very simple in order to mirror the experience of viewing a performance as if you were in a small crowd watching a quiet set. We hope for content of the music to be the primary focus of the series, not multiple camera angles meant to keep the viewer guessing and entertained.

Most bands featured in the series will be a sample of the deep pool of talent in the Triangle, while others will represent some of our touring favorites.
