VIDEO OF THE DAY — LOST IN THE TREES: “RED”

Ari Picker pays tribute to his late artist mother, who committed suicide in 2009, in “Red,” the first video from the upcoming Lost in the Trees album, A Church That Fits Our Needs (Anti-, March 20). The haunting video features sewing machines, leaves and flowers in a cast-iron bathtub, a woman spinning in a photograph, and a ghostly white gown fluttering behind a pianist. The follow-up to the group’s 2010 debut, All Alone in an Empty House, the new disc also includes such tracks as “Moment One,” “Neither Here nor There,” “The Dead Bird Is Beautiful,” and “An Artist’s Song.” “The album attempts to kind of create a space for my mother’s soul, I guess, to go,” Picker explains in a promotional video, “because I can’t really satisfy myself with just thinking that she went to heaven.” The Chapel Hill band will be in New York City to perform a benefit “Live from Home” concert for Housing Works on February 17 with Daytona ($15, 8:00), then will appear at (le) Poisson Rouge on April 11 with Fleet Foxes side project Poor Moon ($15, 7:00).
