Kamron Bahani – “Meditations”

By Will Oliver, May 27th 2018

The always hard-working Rockland County-based rapper Kamron Bahani keeps on proving he’s a fresh talent in the scene that more should be aware of. He returned in March with his latest album Magnum Opus Open and released a proper music video for its track “Meditations.”

Featuring some of his finest produced beats yet and ever-lightning fast speed flow, his rhymes are quite unparalleled these days in the world of trap and mumble rap.

Find the music video for “Meditations” below (directed by DX Films & Kamron Bahani) and if you dig the track, you can find the whole album available to buy over on iTunes.

Brass Phantoms – “Disciples”

By Will Oliver, May 27th 2018

Irish rockers Brass Phantoms are no strangers to these pages. I first posted them last February, when I premiered their track “Waiting Up.” They returned in equally winning fashion late last year with “City Of Wolves” and “Indigo.”

They’ve since returned with new single “Disciples,” which may be their biggest reaching single to-date. It’s got a huge expansive arena-ready rock sound that sits somewhere between the likes of Editors and Two Door Cinema Club with a distinctive atmospheric tone to it that seems like the natural next step for their sound.

You can find a stream of “Disciples” below, along with its official music video. If you like what you’re hearing, you can buy it from iTunes as well.

[music video]: Jeff Rosenstock – “Melba”

By Will Oliver, May 27th 2018

Long Island rocker Jeff Rosenstock returned with his new album POST– on January 1, released via Polyvinyl Records.

“Melba” was the first track to receive the music video treatment from the album. With direction from both Ben Epstein and David Combs, it stars the man himself, Mr. Rosenstock as the manager of a restaurant who just finally snaps. It’s a fun watch.

Find the video posted below and the whole album is available to stream or purchase now from his Bandcamp page.

[music video]: Hop Along – “How Simple”

By Will Oliver, May 26th 2018

It seems every time I listen to Hop Along’s new album Bark Your Head Off, Dog (released via Saddle Creek), it gets better and better. This was first apparent with first single “How Simple,” which seemed to shape-shift and sound different everytime I relistened to it. This is always a good sign of things to come and I don’t have doubts that this record will end up on many best-of lists, mine included.

If you have yet to see their fantastic music video for “How Simple,” you’ve missed one of the best videos of the year so far. Directed by Derrick Belcham, it’s a simple low budget approach with a spotlight shining on lead singer Frances Quinlan throughout an apartment as she busts out some pretty sweet dance moves while singing the words to the camera. Sometimes less is really more and this straightforward approach and tight space was used in terrific fashion by Belcham.

Arctic Monkeys have kept the momentum going strong following the release of new album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino this Friday via Domino Records. Following an intimate (for them) performance at Brooklyn Steel, the band set up a bunch of pop up shops across the globe, including right here in New York.

Now they’ve made Mothers Day that much more special for all the Arctic Monkeys’ moms out there, dropping the music video for “Four Out Of Five,” the closest thing to a proper lead single from the record. Directed by longtime collaborators Focus Creeps ((Ben Chappell & Aaron Brown), the video doesn’t hide away its Stanley Kubrick influences, with A Clockwork Orange and The Shining being the most obvious here.

What begins with our central figure Alex Turner on the piano, we soon see him (and a trusty dog by his side) walk down the hall of a beautiful home and soon the Kubrick/sci-fi influences creep in as the Tranquility Base Hotel is brought to life. It definitely fits the direction and feel of the track and the album at large. This is definitely one of the most truly cinematic music videos from the band to date and it’s a real treat to watch it unfold.

Find the video for “Four Out Of Five” posted below.

Preview: Colin Macleod at Rockwood Music Hall

By Will Oliver, March 12th 2018

Colin Macleod is a Scottish singer-songwriter from a remote place known as Isle of Lewis. MacLeod used to release music under the moniker The Boy Who Trapped The Sun or the abbrivated C. MacLeod, but now he goes by his full name which he will release his new album Bloodlines under this May.

Two of the songs that he’s release so far “Kicks In” and “Shake The Wall,” show a confident songwriter who is sure of his abilities with some real songwriting talent and one hell of a voice. There’s always a wealth of great powerful musicians that seem to find their way over from Scottland and Macleod seems to be another voice that deserves to be heard in a big, big way.

He is currently in Austin for a bunch of SXSW performances and will then come here to New York on March 20 for a free performance at Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 1).

You can learn a lot about Macleod as both a person an artist from this wonderful video that I have included below, along with the official music video for “Shake The Wall,” along with the flyer for all of his SXSW dates.

red steppes – “I Did Not Speak It”

By Will Oliver, February 22nd 2018

red steppes is the Oakland-based project of singer-songwriter Nika States. Her songwriting has a fine sensibility to it that sees her write in a way that captures a distinct time and place that is personal and most importantly, true.

She’s gearing up to release her new album A Mouth May Grow and has shared it’s first single “I Did Not Speak It,” a lovely folk tune that tells of a salt marsh in the town of Rawbridge that she was introduced to by her mother. In essence, a song that shows how music can take us back to places important to us, or ones that we used to know.

It’s a lovely song and one that you can enjoy below via it’s official music video, directed by Cooper Kenward.
