IFC has premiered the brand new video for Big Harp "Everybody Pays" which was directed by Danny Drysdale who captures the natural chemistry between husband and wife duo, Chris Senseney and Stefanie Drootin-Senseney. Filmed in one day in California's Yermo / Calico Ghost Town, the video shows off the area's beautiful landscapes -- sweeping desert and dilapidated buildings butted up against roadside diners and aging tourist traps. Head over to the IFC website to watch & share the video. "Everybody Pays" is also available as an MP3 download at Paste Magazine. Be sure to catch Big Harp on tour in October with Maria Taylor. Big Harp's debut album White Hat is out now on Saddle Creek . The album's songs range from gun-in-her-garter saloon narratives and paranoid soul struts to intimate ballads of quiet resignation and open-hearted love songs. The recordings are raw and un-fussed over, with the spirited energy and honest emotion of live performance. Drawing from the classic country and folk of Senseney s childhood and anchored by Drootin s rock-solid rhythms and indie-punk roots, White Hat contains echoes of artists from Townes Van Zandt to Nick Cave, Willie Nelson to Captain Beefheart. White Hat was recorded at LA s Nightingale studios in a mere three days by Rilo Kiley bassist Pierre de Reeder.
