Hannah Featherstone’s Music Video for “Solo”

Hannah Featherstone is giving us “Solo” for our listeners to check out.  In this single Hannah plays with a slower smoother tempo that you get through some Jazz pieces.  The staccato beat the single carries the listener through the slower jazzy parts of the single.  The blending sounds strange, but it works here.  The video features Hannah with a static filter to keep the watcher interested in the flow.  Here’s Hannah Featherstone’s music video for “Solo” through her YouTube channel – Richard:

Ren with the Mane’s Single “Hypnotize”

Ren with the Mane is sharing with our listeners her single “Hypnotize”.  Within this single I love the drum beat and the bird calls that make you feel like you are in a jungle.  It’s just a great illusion that is placed in you mind as you listen to Ren.  “Hypnotize” is a slower song, but the drums and strong bass beat keep the single moving forward to its climatic end.  About two thirds of the way into the single the instrumentals swell into a grand sound with additional instruments coming into play.  With Ren’s smoky voice she captures the listener and takes you on a journey.  Here’s Ren with the Mane’s single “Hypnotize” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Kris Angelis’ Music Video for “Kevin Bacon”

Kris Angelis has given everyone a fun catchy song to enjoy with her “Kevin Bacon” single.  Then along with it she, with director Emma Bell, produced a very fun Footloose homage music video for the single for everyone to enjoy.  This single is placed in the country/pop arena with Kris’ voice shinning through.  You can tell she had fun singing and filming the video for this single.  If they haven’t had Kevin Bacon watch this video they definitely need to, I think he would appreciate it.  Very interested in listening to her EP Heartbreak is Contagious that everyone can download from their digital vendor of choice.  And you know I have to mention the Wonder Woman penciling in the background in the boyfriends bedroom wall, I would love to have that for my collection.  Anyway kick back and have a fun time watching and listening to Kris Angelis’ single “Kevin Bacon” through her YouTube channel – Richard

The Dot and The Line’s Music Video for “Draw Me In”

The Dot and The Line is coming out of the gate strong.  They are sharing with us their music video for “Draw Me In” and that is exactly what they did to me.  It is a slower song, but tell me when you watch the music video and listen to the single it doesn’t draw you in as well.  From the start of this single my mind immediately thought how this would be a great song to place on a soundtrack for a post-apocalyptic movie’s ending credit song.  The music video is done in such a way that re-enforces that concept for me.  This single slows down your day and makes you contemplate.  Nicely done all the way around and see if The Dot and The Line doesn’t draw you in with their music video for “Draw Me In” – Richard:

Midnight Beach’s Music Video for “No”

Midnight Beach is sharing with our listeners again.  This time they want everyone to check out their music video for their single “No” from their self-titled LP.  Midnight Beach still comes out with the electronica sound, but with a slower bass beat.  The mixing for this single is tremendous.  With the softer lead vocals and the heavy bass beat the vocals could have been lost within the instrumentals.  However, the mixer made sure the vocals were a distinct track that rose above the instrumentals.  The music video is crisp and clean and fun to watch.  The dancing is right out of the late 1980’s – 1990’s as well as the sound.  Their self-titled LP is out now!  Here’s Midnight Beach’s music video, for “No”, through Vevo – Richard

No by Midnight Beach on VEVO.

Danny Padilla’s Single “Too Bad”

Danny Padilla’s single “Too Bad” starts out with a encompassing sound that takes you in.  The breathiness of the singing gives it an ethereal quality.  Then Danny comes in with his strong baritone voice that pulls you in even more.  It is more of a ballad song that talks about how sometimes it is hard to get over someone.  This has a beautiful sound to me that I could listen to over and over.  I am definitely eager to hear what else Danny comes out with.  Enjoy Danny Padilla’s “Too Bad” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Yes You Are’s Music Video for “HGX”

Yes You Are is sharing their music video, for “HGX”, with our listeners.  The single has that catchy upbeat feel that gets you motivated to get out and about.  The verse gives you a straight up base beat to get your head to moving and then the chorus comes in and the full band strikes up in an explosive sound that gets the rest of the body moving.  “HGX” has been featured on a Pepsi Max commercial and also in the movie Bad Moms.  The music video itself features imagery of the band in a stylish rendering.  Enjoy Yes You Are’s music video “HGX” through their YouTube channel – Richard:

Charlotte Bash’s Latest Single “Labeled”

Charlotte Bash is giving us another single for our listeners the check out.  This time it is her single “Labeled”, from her Princess Game LP.  Charlotte still gives us her strong voice in a song that reminds everyone it is alright to be yourself.  Don’t let anyone tell you who you should be.  Throughout the single she has a nice base beat going in and out to help “drive” the message home.  Then she has Anye Elite come in with a nice feature at the end of the single to show differences aren’t bad and in this case the different styles of music are complementary and create a great sound.  Here’s Charlotte Bash’s “Labeled” through SoundCloud – Richard:

The Captain’s Son’s Latest Single “Burned Out Early”

The Captain’s Son is sharing with us again.  This time they are treating our listener’s with their latest single “Burned Out Early”.  As you remember I said this group was a time trip for me and “Burned Out Early” is the same.  This time Captain’s Son ventures into the Psychedelic arena, which shouldn’t surprise anyone with the title of the single.  This also shows that the group is interested in different sounds that listeners will want to check out.  Here’s Captain’s Son’s “Burned Out Early”, through SoundCloud, for you to chill to – Richard:

Upsahl’s Latest Single “Can You Hear Me Now”

Upsahl is sharing with our listeners her latest single “Can You Hear Me Now”.  This single has a catchy rhythm and Upsahl has a nice clear strong voice.  The flow of the music reminds me of something you might have heard back in the late 1990’s in the pop arena.  Even though the subject isn’t the funnest thing to talk about Upsahl, who collaborated with Max Frost on this piece, puts a poppy beat to it that people will get into.  With such a strong voice I’m eager to hear more from Upsahl. Here’s Upsahl’s “Can You Hear Me Now”, which is available now from your digital vendor of choice, through SoundCloud – Richard:
