Bill Baird - "We'll Meet Again Someday, or We Won't" / "Burn Burn Burn"

Los Angeles painter David Phillips recently shot a video for two tracks off Bill Baird's excellent Goodbye Vibrations LP, which I reviewed glowingly back in August. The video is a two-parter, lightly depicting a couple's date in the woods to "We'll Meet Again Someday Soon, or We Won't" in the first half, before devolving into more experimental territory ("...a disturbing testament to 60s and 70s experimental films such as Holy Mountain and The Trip," says Phillips) in the latter half, along to "Burn, Burn, Burn"—a tale of love-inspired self-destruction. If you haven't heard Baird's record, do yourself a favor and download it or nab the vinyl here. Filled with the warm analog glow of tape hiss, soft introspective vocals, and sparse finger-plucked guitars, Goodbye Vibrations is an honest and truly intimate portrait of an artist.

Watch the video after the jump.

Goodbye Vibrations is available digitally and limited to 50 copies on vinyl.

Earlier in the summer, Baird released the woozy "Wino-Strut"—an ambient rock track recorded by Quentin Stoltzfus and written about Phillips.
