Beliefs w/ Martha (and the Muffins) “Echo Beach”

42BELIEFS are joined by original Martha & The Muffins singer Martha Johnson on their rendition of the classic Toronto tune “Echo Beach” from their seminal album “Metro Music” which landed at number 42 on NOW Magazine’s Top 50 Toronto Albums list.

MARTHA AND THE MUFFINS // METRO MUSIC (1979) : With a British record deal, a hit in Echo Beach and Metro Music’s cover designed by Peter Saville, Martha and the Muffins were never confined to the CanCon ghetto. The group’s core was singer Martha Johnson and guitarist Mark Gane, but the original lineup, including sax player Andy Haas, shone with jazzy inventiveness. (Read via NOW Magazine)

Beliefs “Carousel” Video

BELIEFS new video for “Carousel” off their self-titled debut album is Part Two in director Benjamin Portas’ HDD Video Trilogy. Part One was Dusted’s beautiful video for “Bruises”. Benjamin and Production Assistant Erica Beyea shot the video in remote Australia, taking advantage of their surroundings to craft a beautiful visual interpretation of the song.

The “dreamier” and “hazy” new clip for “Carousel” debuted on Brooklyn Vegan to coincide with the Beliefs’ Brooklyn show at Shea Stadium. Look for a European tour this fall including a few festival stops. Beliefs “Self-Titled” is available on limited smokey vinyl (only a handful of copies left) in our HDD on-line store.
