Slowed down, hushed vocals, and much more abstract visuals in Bombay Show Pig’s latest video for track, “Fingerprint.”
I really enjoy the minute details and evolving concept from small to large that builds throughout the entire video. The edits work well too. As the track gets larger and more momentous, adding plenty of brass and other elements, as do the shots tying everything together.
I love everything about holychild’s music video for their bouncy Summer tune, “Best Friends.” From the wide angle shots, to the late afternoon shadows, to the beautiful and desolate setting of Bombay Beach, California – the entire production is absolutely solid.
From DC to LA, holychild seems to be moving at an exorbitant rate. Learn more about the group here, and be sure to keep tabs on these guys – I’m excited to see what comes next.
BONUS: The location alone in “Best Friends” reminded me of the interesting documentary titled Bombay Beachwhich tells of local’s tales and features some incredible music. I believe it’s on Netflix too..
The Farewell Circuit was one of the very first bands I ever blogged about. I still remember the exact track too.
I was an intern at the time for a local record label that had a vibrant blogging community. Part of my duties were to share often things I was listening to. “I Am a Ghost” seemingly came out of nowhere and instantly struck a chord with me. The raw guitar strumming, slight lo-fi on the vocals, and most likely the dejected content was what really got me wanting to share.
Now we’re 3 years later and the band is as solid as ever. Listen to their brand new single, “We Were Wolves,” below and be sure to stay tuned here - The brand new album drops May 28th.
BONUS: Just because I obviously had to include a download for “I Am A Ghost.”
I recently featured André Uhl for his late night, eerie sounds when he dropped his latest EP. I love when artists connect the audio to the visual and Uhl did just that when he translated his track, “Native,” off of Creatures into his latest music video.
It’s dark, mysterious and along the lines of slightly creepy as the main focal point feels only inches off of the wet, forest floor. Going on a long and foggy trip, this video is well produced and best enjoyed full screen.
The Canadians, Hey Rosetta!, seem to always make such effortless and bouncy music. Their vocals blend warmly and their choruses are often quite catchy. With impressively tight instrumentation and uncomplicated melodies the group have dropped a neat little Christmas package for your ears via Noisetrade. Did I mention it was free?
Enjoy the cute accompanying tour vid and grab your copy of their fabulous single, “Carry Me Home,” below.
The latest in our series showcases some fine, local talent at one of my most favorite spots in the city with an incredible skyline view. West of the Schuylkill river lies a small green square only a couple blocks off of Drexel U.’s campus, which hosts a fabulous view of Philadelphia. RGB Video Productionsand What’s Protocol? were lucky enough to catch A Cool Stick live and in action.
Watch the gentleman play their single, “Home Girl,” with an unbeatable view of the city behind them. Also be sure to check out frontman Luke O’Brien’s mixtape, The Doperness, up for free below. Enjoy.
s but I came across this new one by the homie Kool A.D over on Pitchfork. It’s funny and I heard him perform this track (“Manny Pacquiao”) at a CMJ showcase a couple weeks ago. He rips it live; has a lot of fun and messes around on stage and in the crowd, also the song is fun and has a pretty mean beat.
Go ahead and take a peak; soak it up, marinate, sting heavy still float like a feather weight. Oh and check out the live shots below the video!
was just writing about the Super Hero video and now he has sent his video for his track, “Fader” our way.
The video is visually stimulating, with solid editing thanks to our boys at RGB, and the track itself is very catchy. I personally love how the vocals were mixed. Check out the video and keep your eyes out for Ohene’s upcoming album, American Idle. As a matter of fact, just follow Ohene’s Twitter feed and I’m sure he’ll let you know when it’s online/for sale.
