DYGL’s Music Video for “Come Together”

DYGL is sharing with our listeners their music video for their single “Come Together”.  This quartet is hitting us with a fun rock single.  The single has an infectious beat to it that will get your head a bobbing and body a movin’.  Really enjoyed this single from DYGL.  The music video itself is a performance video, but it has some atmosphere to it with the haze and coloration that is used.  If you are going to be at SXSW be sure to see them perform live.  They have two performances planned: on March 15, they will be at Maggie Mae’s at 10 PM and then a second performance on March 17, at Esther’s Follies beginning at 12 AM.  Here’s your taste of the groups sound with DYGL’s music video for “Come Together” through their YouTube channel – Richard:

Monster Hunter Stories Ride On Trailer

Monster Hunter Stories Ride On Part 1, is the next season of Monster Hunter Stories from FUNimation.  The animation done in this series is reminiscent of something you would see in Digimon and Pokemon.  It looks geared for younger anime fans, but before you let younger fans watch you might check it out first just to be safe.  It looks fun and with the mini-dragon concept I can see young fans eating this series up.  Here’s the trailer through FUNimation’s YouTube channel:

Alyson Joseph’s Latest Music Video for “night”

Alyson Joseph is sharing with our listeners her single “night’s” music video.  The video is Alyson in a room singing acoustical with her guitar live as the video designates in it’s title.  Alyson has an alto voice that lends well to thought provoking soul infused musicality.  “night” is one that will make you pay attention to the lyrics for a deeper experience.  Alyson has an as of yet titled EP scheduled for a March release date, but until then she invites you to listen to “night” for said forthcoming EP through her YouTube channel – Richard:

OVTLIER’s Newest Music Video “Broken Bones”

It’s a Heavy Metal/Hard Rock morning today.  This outing OVTLIER is sharing with our listeners again by letting us view their music video for their newest single “Broken Bones”.  OVTLIER makes no bones about it that they are a hard rock band and they have a similar sound as bands like Linken Park…part screamo/part what I would call normal voiced vocals.  This style I really like because it gets you pumped up, but also allows the listener a calming section before ratcheting everything back up again.  The music video is basically a concert video, which fits because with this type of music you are banging your head to much enjoying the music.  Check out OVTLIER’s “Broken Bones” music video , from their What Doesn’t Kill You EP, through their YouTube channel – Richard:

Ascending Dawn Releases Latest Single “Simplify” Music Video

Ascending Dawn is knocking it out of the park again with their single “Simplify”.  I am really enjoying this bands sound.  They are still hitting hard with the hard rock/metal beats, but Marlain Angelides’ vocals come in and smooth it out it a perfect mesh.  If you haven’t picked there album up yet remember to go to you digital vendor of choice and look up their album Coalesce.  The music video that the band has done for this album is a studio album that focuses on Marlain that you can see here through their YouTube channel, so check out Ascending Dawn’s “Simplify” now while looking up their album – Richard:

Black Panther Final Trailer

So who else is pumped for Black Panther this weekend?  I definitely am!  I don’t watch all the trailers to leave a little mystery, but in this one I saw something that would be cool.  I know it probably isn’t going to be the case, but with Disney looking at acquiring 20th Century Fox it would be neat if they had a crossover like Sony did with Spider-Man.  At around 57 seconds into the trailer there is a character with white hair, it would be so cool if that would be Storm from the X-Men.  Like I said I know it probably isn’t so.  Anyway here’s the final trailer for Black Panther through Movie Trailers Source YouTube channel:

Natalie Shay’s New Single “This Feeling”

Natalie Shay is sharing with our listeners her new single “This Feeling”.  “This Feeling” starts out for a few seconds like it is going to be a slower song for the listeners.  Then around ten seconds in the beat starts picking up until you are in the midst of a flow blown fun upbeat song.  Natalie carries the single with a powerful performance with some strong vocals.  Natalie is currently working on new music for release, but this single is available now for everyone to check out.  Enjoy Natalie Shay’s “This Feeling” through SoundCloud – Richard:
