Video: Daniel Hart covers INXS with Beck, members of Os Mutantes, Liars

In March, we posted a video of Daniel Hart (the man behind The Physics of Meaning) taking part in Beck‘s Record Club project, in which a batch of unlikely collaborators are assembled to cover a classic album in one day. In this case, Beck got Liars, Sergio Dias of Os Mutantes, and St. Vincent (which Daniel is a member of) to cover INXSKick in its entirety. Beck has periodically released videos of each song, and you can catch them all here. Posted above is the most recent video, featuring Daniel’s magical violin playing. Enjoy!

Video: The Physics of Meaning – “Happy Forever” @ Nightlight

Daniel Hart’s The Physics of Meaning just kicked off their Southern tour with a string of incredible North Carolina shows. Here’s the band performing “Happy Forever”, a unreleased song that will surely appear on the upcoming Daniel Hart record. Beautiful.

Video: Senryu – “Inklings”

Senryu is a wonderful band based in Knoxville, TN. What does this have to do with Trekky Records? Well, I’ll tell you, dear friend. Senryu is led by the one and only Wil Wright, who also is a long-time member of Daniel Hart’s The Physics of Meaning. If you’ve seen Physics’ four member iteration, he’s the dapper young gentleman to the left, playing bass and keys and singing harmonies. In any case, Magnet Magazine recently premiered Senryu’s music video for the new song “Inklings” off the new album of the same name. Check out the intimate clip above. Also be sure to check out the band’s Daytrotter Session, for some free live-in-the-studio tracks.

If you live in NC, you also still have a few chances to see Wil play in the full band Physics of Meaning this weekend. Dates below:

05-07 Greensboro, NC – The Green Bean
05-08 Durham, NC – The Pinhook
05-09 Raleigh, NC – Tir Na Nog
