Cicada Rhythm just released a new music video for their tune, “Dirty Hound.” Directed by Dave Kirslis, the video depicts a dog houdini’s liberating escape attempt. The video winds through a pastoral countryside, the forest, and eventually the good dog finds himself behind the wheel of a beat-up old truck, ready to truly hit the road. After a brief run-in with his previous owner, let’s just say the video has a happy ending. The triumphant video matches the free energy of the track, and we’re all the better for watching it. You can check out the video for yourself below, and praise that good boy for bustin’ free of his chains.Cicada Rhythm just finished up dates with Dylan LeBlanc and Rising Appalachia. On April 7th, they performed with JJ Grey at eTown Taping for an NPR program, which will be available for your listening pleasure in a few weeks online and on NPR.

I made a pledge to them, number one, I think I’ve been thrown out of three games this year. That’s not me. And that’s not going to happen. I have to be a leader of this team. My actions have to go first.”The Clippers are third in the NBA with 32 technical fouls. DeAndre Jordan has been called for eight, tied for second most in league. Doc Rivers has six, tied for the most among NBA coaches.“One of my things when I started this year is I would do the fighting and they would do the playing. And I actually, after watching it, it doesn’t work,” Rivers said. “They still do the fighting. And I’m doing the fighting. We’re reversing it. I told them I’m getting no more (techs). I’m holding everybody accountable, including me, if anyone gets a tech.”Rivers said he’ll now donate his NBA fines to the Violence Intervention Program, a Los Angeles-based program that helps victims of physical and sexual abuse and neglect.“At the end of the day, someone has to be a leader,” he said. “So, I figured, let’s try it this way.” Wednesday, it seemed to work.Jordan literally covered his mouth with his hand instead of picking up a fourth-quarter technical, something his teammates and coaches all noticed.“That was good,” Marreese Speights said. “It’s a process. You can’t do it over night. As long as we keep working at it, we’ll finally get it and understand it.”Jordan’s one of the Clippers’ most emotional players, and he acknowledged that it’s tough to rein it in.“Hell yeah,” he said. “The game is so emotional. But it’s passion too. You want to win games.”The Clippers have dealt with this before, and nothing has changed.“I think our team is like, literally, the definition of insanity,” J.J. Redick said.But if the team wants different results – which it does – the players are simply going to have to change how they act.“I think sometimes, in human nature, when you’re an (expletive) to someone, the response usually is to be an (expletive) back,” Rivers said. “You know what I mean? That’s a fair assessment of how life works. Just leave (the refs) alone.” LOS ANGELES >> When he was a teenager playing basketball outside of Chicago, Glenn “Doc” Rivers once chased Isiah Thomas and his friends into a local post office after losing to the future Hall of Famer in a pick-up game.“I’m never going to change. I’m still Glenn from Maywood,” Rivers said. “Don’t forget that. I’m always going to be feisty. And I want to fight for my team every night. But I also want us to be better.”It’s why Rivers spent a significant chunk of time talking to his players Wednesday morning about one of their biggest, most visible issues – the way they deal with officials.Following his team’s win over Memphis on Wednesday night, Rivers decided to lay out his plan before answering any questions.
