Introducing the Crimsmen introduces The Peacers group coming into their own, marking territory established on their 2015 debut, and rubbing our noses in it. Among the many tracks on the new album, you slip and slide from peakings of keening bubblegum scuzz romp to gleaming melancholic nocturne with rips and bits of things flown in from other places amid the gentle settling of dust in the basement recording room. We've previewed a couple of songs already, flashing elements of jangle, wistful acoustic and punk/classic rock mish mash. With the album due for release this week, here's a song and video from yet another room in The Peacers haunted manse, "Staying Home"!

Premiering today on NPR, "Staying Home" seems to eminate from the basin of the soul; an ID rebounding back and forth, shuffling from dull stupor to comfortably numb. Bo Moore's narcotized vocal delivery ranges from relaxed to apathy, with a side order of distracted shame. The video, directed by William Keihn, showcases the visceral toll of isolation and delusion in a young man's life. With deep-focus images from Keihn and DP Anthony Saif, the video for "Staying Home" reflects and a pure and unflinching vision that provides an alternate narrative to the song's already-cautionary, dream-pop undertow.
