RNDM (pronounced “random”) is a new musical group featuring Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur and former Fastbacks drummer Richard Stuverud. The band has released its debut album Acts on October 30th in CD, vinyl LP and digital formats via Monkeywrench Records/RED in the U.S. and Canada. To celebrate the release, Acts is streaming in full at AOL Spinner and MSN Listening Booth.
The trio released a new video for the song “Walking Through New York” yesterday and shows the group walking through a rainy New York City evening and then taking the subway. Watch the video on VEVO and below.

Singer Joseph Arthur’s latest artistic endeavor is the music video for Acts album track “Throw You to the Pack” which premiered on RollingStone.com this week. The wild animated visuals were created by Arthur on his iPad to illustrate what he calls “Nihilism giving way to creation and back again.” Arthur continues, “I wanted to capture the frenetic energy of the track with art. Make something visual that moved with the spirit of the song.” Watch the animated video below.
