New video for “Red Hot” from General Oglethorpe and the Panhandlers

I’ve mentioned the young Savannah band General Oglethorpe and the Panhandlers several times on this blog since I started it in January, including this review of their debut album Whistle the Dirges.

Lead singer Devin Smith recently got his undergrad degree in film from the Savannah College of Art and Design — which gave the band a perfect opportunity to shoot music videos for his senior project. Bands certainly get better coverage online if there are good videos of some sort out there for inclusion on web pages, calendar listings, blog posts, and so forth. And General O certainly has two good pieces out there now.

Here’s the newly released video “Red Hot”, which is upbeat and dreamlike:

Here’s the band’s much darker first video, “Sick Sick Lover”, winner for SCAD’s spring award for best non-narrative student film:

General O is currently working on an EP. More about upcoming gigs and other info can be found on the band’s website.
