daFinchi And Janay Saxon Share “Seeds”

A lot of crossover hip-hop doesn’t hold up quite as well from an exclusively instrumental perspective as it does a complete, lyrics-adorned piece, but this just can’t be said of the new single “Seeds” by daFinchi and Janay Saxon. Here, the retro samples and distant, swirling vocal harmonies surround us and reinforce insular sonic qualities […]

Darro “Runs On Guilt”

Guilt, shame, embarrassment: is there any greater fodder for getting into uncomfortable obligations than these emotions? In his new single and grizzly music video “Runs on Guilt,” rock singer/songwriter Darro makes a case that there aren’t, and to me, his is quite the convincing argument. Between the visible cringe of our protagonist in the video […]

Roger Jeager Says “It’s My Time”

Roger Jaeger isn’t just sitting on a stool playing guitar, crooning into the camera as so many post-hipster singer/songwriters have been in the insurgent wave of pandemic-era folk/rock we’ve been hearing around the west in the past two years – he’s commanding an entire band of numerous players in the music video for his song […]

Summer Rain “Hold Her Hand”

Heavy guitar rock is all the more noticeable these days, and in Summer Rain’s “Hold Her Hand,” electric six-string charm takes center stage in a way it hasn’t on the mainstream level in years. Summer Rain admittedly tackles the harmony we hear in their opening verses with a retro stylization that brings to mind some […]

Greg Hoy Rides “Highway 101”

Greg Hoy is an old school rocker who happens to have the heart of a singer/songwriter, and in his laid-back new single and music video “Highway 101,” the first cut off of Cacophony 2, his melodic abilities take center stage for one of his best studio showings thus far. Although devoid of an urgent tempo, a […]

Eddie Cohen Unleashes The “Animals” With New Remix

Fragmented images accompanied by a solid soundtrack and a thoroughly cohesive poetic narrative to be shared – so goes the brilliant contrast you’ll encounter when taking a look at the new music video for Eddie Cohn’s “Animals” remix this September. Indeed, it goes without saying that Cohn’s magnificent compositional wit was bound to be the […]

Lords And Liars Release “Killdozer”

While the insularities of indie songcraft are enjoying an increased presence on the FM dial lately, the isolated feel of the new music video for metal outfit Lords and Liars’ “Killdozer” is different from any other I’ve encountered this year. We’re trapped inside a dark, dismal environment reinforced by the backdrop and implied evils on […]
