How dope are these visuals!? There is so much to look at in this video! Laura Mvula’s message to listeners is apparent very early in the song. “I will never be what you want and that’s alright. Coz my skin ain’t light, and my body ain’t tight, and that’s alright.” How powerful is that? Reminiscent of  the talented Janelle Monaé, Laura continues to define her position as a black woman in the music business.

I liked this video before I pressed ‘Play.’ Seductive gold painted figures intrigued me. Bending, contorting, embracing as the music transpired.

Pegasus Warning is a four-piece band fronted by former NYU music professor, Guillermo Brown. The video, directed by the talented Wangechi Mutu, captured the essence of lovemaking while inspired by Rodin’s classic French sculptures. Pegasus Warning recently released their EP, Woof Ticket, and expect their LP to be released in June.

A.Dd+ – “Can’t You See” (Prod. By NickNack) [VIDEO]

Sunday, February 10, 2013 by | No Comments | Category: Entertainment, Music, Music Video, Pop, Video

I’m trying to get to Dallas and cop  A.Dd+’s, new project “DiveHiFlyLo.”  Here’s the video and group’s brief from Red Bull’s site:

‘Can’t You See’ is a collaboration between Dallas rap group (and Red Bull Soundstage artists) A.Dd+ and producer NickNack. The video was directed and produced by OG of Luxury Mindz.

The song, which appears on NickNack’s album ‘State Machine’ and is available at Crowd Control Records and NickNack’s bandcamp page, came about when A.Dd+’s DJ Sober met up with NickNack in Austin during a Red Bull Thre3Style event. NickNack said he was a fan of the group and played a few beats. The end result was ‘Can’t You See,’ a head-bobbing tune with a soulful beat and sharp lyrics from rappers Paris Pershun and Slim Gravy.

A.Dd+ debuted their first album, ‘When Pigs Fly,’ in 2011 to wide acclaim, earning raves from Pitchfork Media and XXL. The group’s upcoming mixtape, ‘DiveHiFlyLo,’ drops January 26. A.Dd+ will celebrate the release with a performance at the Granada Theater in Dallas.

Peep the new sounds from the homie Blkkmorris
“I recently had the pleasure of acting as sound architect for the fam over at FRESH.I.AM as they crossed the void from the digital realm into the physical world. Expect a lot of airy ethereal noises layered with snares and hi-hats. This should be enough to hold you guys over until TRAPACANA 2, SEX TRAP 2, AND VAVLTBOYZ 3.”


Beach House Releases Home Made Video For “New Year”

Wednesday, January 2, 2013 by | No Comments | Category: Alternative/Rock, Electro, Music, Pop

Maryland dream pop duo Beach House just released a home made video for their song “Bloom.” Patched together from a string of videos shot during the recording process for the album, the video contains many furry cats and a lot of warm sun gazing through still windows. The song is the perfect intro to this brand new year.

Here’s a description of the video the band offered on their YouTube page:

Here is a video we made using footage from our recording session at Sonic Ranch Studios, Tornillo, Texas. It’s more of a home video thing, not a music video…….we just thought these moments and the memories they involve fit this song. SUPER SPECIAL thanks to our wonderful assistant engineer for the session Manuel Calderon (the guy with the tequila), who filmed all the time lapses and a lot of the studio footage.
