NAHKO releases new music video for Goodnight Sun

Singer/songwriter Nahko has released the official music video for his latest single, “Goodnight Sun.”  This is the fourth single from his debut solo album, My Name is Bear, following the release of “Dragonfly,” “Be Here Now,” and “Hamakua.”  The video combines behind the scenes footage of Nahko on tour with Medicine For The People and clips from time spent with family and friends at home.  Watch the video for “Goodnight Sun” here:

“When can I leave this shell body behind me?  Join you in setting the moon up for rising?” Some lost lyrics to Goodnight Sun… I remember sitting at the lookout near Kealakekua Bay, writing this song into existence.  It started as a freestyle sunset song. Just me and the ocean and the sun. I carried those lyrics as a prayer for so many years. It became my salutation song, a reverent nod to the symbiosis between sun and human body.  It’s been a joy to bring the song back after so many years, breathing new life into it. Josue and I had a blast making this playful video, as well. A look into life on the road and a mirror to life at home. I wanted the expanse of nature to be witnessed here, the glory of Cascadia in Oregon, and the home where I grew up.  Enjoy!” – NAHKO

Nahko And Medicine For The People are currently on tour with Dispatch playing boutique amphitheaters and as well as their own headline dates with Xiuhtezcatl and Raye Zaragoza on select shows. Earlier in the summer, they supported Zac Brown Band on stadium shows. Tickets for all upcoming shows are now on sale here:

Pre-Order AJJ’S UGLY SPIRAL now!

Over the last 15 years, Phoenix, AZ’s AJJ (fka Andrew Jackson Jihad) has achieved incredible success solely on the back of their songwriting, and the uncompromising clarity of their lyrics. They just got back from a very long tour (50 sold out shows) across the U.S., Canada, UK and Europe, in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of their album People Who Can Eat People Are the Luckiest People in the World. And while that album remains a high water mark in the folk-punk genre, the has grown considerably in the last decade.

After two diverse full lengths for SideOneDummy (two of their best yet), AJJ now bring us Ugly Spiral: Lost Works 2012-2016, a collection of never-before-heard studio cuts (like opener “Space and Time,” and the incendiary “Blood, Hatred, Money, and Rage”), live favorites, songs previously only available on vinyl, and alternate takes of album highlights.
