Laure Z is giving us a bright shining song with her single “I Will Follow You”. With the whistling and ukulele this song has a light airy feel to it. The second and third verse goes into a more rounded sound with more instruments coming in giving more of a pop sound. But it is definitely that first and fourth verse that gives one that folk springy sound that is fun to hear during a more dreary time of year with our weather. “I Will Follow You” comes from Laure Z’s EP Girls Don’t Wait, which will be available on December 1. Until then enjoy Laure Z’s springy single “I Will Follow You” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Common Deer is sharing with our listeners again. This time it is for their music video for their single “Glass”. The single keeps with their folk/pop feel that I enjoy. “Glass” is a slower contemplative song that flows around you. The music doesn’t make any hard waves, but is soothing even though it talks about relationships and how there can be waves. The music video is really nicely done and shows all the group as they perform. Take a contemplative breath and enjoy Common Deer’s music video for “Glass” through their The Strombo Show’s YouTube channel – Richard:
Thor: Ragnarok just looks to be a fun film. Remember it’s out this Friday. So make your weekend plans accordingly. Thanks to FilmSelect Trailer’s YouTube channel for this final look trailer:
“The Deep End” takes one on a journey like all relationships are. Oparu gives us a 1990’s style single with the powerful instrumentals and electronic sound. When she goes into the chorus of the single the music swells up over her sound as she is singing “deep end”. For this song I believe that might be intentional, because in the deep end you tend to struggle as the water is washing over you, very nice symbolism. The lyric video takes you on a journey as well through waterways and city scapes. All around a very nice sound. Here’s Oparu’s lyric video for “The Deep End” through her YouTube channel – Richard:

It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t post the trailer for Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built right before Halloween. Thanks to MoviesClips Trailers YouTube channel for the trailer:
They Call Him Zone gives us that European dance club feel with his music video for his single “Death Drive”. Another great song for the Halloween season. With an electro/psychedelic sound the single has the right amount of darkness, but still has that bass beat for the club. Take a ride with They Call Him Zone and his music video for “Death Drive” through his YouTube channel – Richard:
