Laura Gibson's Ghostly New Video

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Thu, Jan 26, 2012 at 3:19 PM

I wasn't kidding about it being a day for video premieres. Here's the gorgeous new video from Laura Gibson, who enlisted director Alicia J. Rose to direct this clip for the title track of Gibson's new record, La Grande. Gibson stars in the video, in which she visits Hot Lake Hotel in the town of La Grande, Oregon—that's where the name of the record came from, for those of you keeping track. Trouble is, the hotel seems to have a wee bit of a ghost problem.

NPR premiered the video today, and they have the whole story, told by Gibson and Rose. It's well worth reading. There are ghosts, and train wrecks, and 208-degree natural hot lakes!
