Americana Highways brings you this video premiere of Carver Baronda’s “If Nothing Else Comes Along,” from Baronda’s upcoming EP Spooky Love, due out October 18. Spooky Love was recorded at Mashed Potato Studio (engineers who worked on the EP were: Duff Thompson, Bill Howard, Anders Christophersen, and Carver Baronda), and mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk.
“If Nothing Else Comes Along” is Carver Baronda on vocals, guitar, and lap steel; Duff Thompson on guitar; Ric Robertson on organ; Max Bien-Kahn on bass; and Sam Doores on drums. The video was directed & edited by Carver Baronda; with Mark Shyzer and Carver Baronda on camera. This video perfectly synthesizes the eerie and the sublime embodied in Carver Baronda’s musical style. If you’ve got a seasonal craving for garage country-rock macabre, look no further than Spooky Love.
We had so much fun making this video! It was partially shot on Super 8 and partially on mini dv, and I couldn’t resist some good old-fashioned unbridled use of green screen. I wanted to make something fun, psychedelic, and horror-inspired to go with this song. — Carver Baronda
