Out in August, Appetite’s Scattered Smothered Covered has a pretty broad range of emotions, as seen when comparing “Little While” against the first single, “Tussy.” For one, the newest song is softer, self-reflecting, and pleading.
The video for “Little While” is a perfect mirror — it was shot on Briggs’ “crappy canon digital camera” over time, which he then lined up into a montage of collected memories. He explains:
“I mostly filmed moments that were really fun or things I just thought were funny. I always wanted an excuse to share this footage and of course a music video for one of my songs would work. I thought “Little While” was most appropriate…not too much deeper artistic meaning involved here. But more of a vehicle to try and share myself and how much I love my friends. I like to brag about having the best friends in the world, but everybody with good friends thinks their friends are the best. I wouldn’t be anywhere without good friends, memories and family. Oh yeah, and a sense of humor about all this life and shit.”
Appetite is playing at Phono del Sol this Saturday – so come on time and catch their recently formed full band play the first set of the afternoon.
Before “Little While” came “Tussy,” which just became available as a download today. The video for that song was a collaboration between Briggs and his close friend and former Sacramento neighbor Terroreyes.tv. Bizarre and impressively edited, it pretty much sums up what it is like to be inside the head of the song’s creator.
