Cassandra Maze’s “Wait” Music Video

From the opening guitar solo you get the feel of “Wait” that Cassandra Maze is sharing with us.  This reminds me of some old school rock/pop singles.  You have that driving beat that propels you through the single and then you have the pop flavor pouring in throughout the single.  Very nice mixture that Cassandra achieves and one that many will dig.  I love the clock themed music video that was produced for “Wait”.  Cassandra’s look in the video is great as well and conveys a striking image.  All the way around this is a well crafted single and music video.  Her EP Velocity will be hitting soon so keep an eye out for it from your digital vendor of choice.  Until then enjoy Cassandra Maze’s music video for “Wait” through her YouTube channel – Richard:

Mt. Wolf’s Music Video for “Heavenbound”

Mt. Wolf is sharing with our listeners again.  This time it is their music video for their single “Heavenbound”.  This single is very heavy and the vocals add to that sense of foreboding.  The music video tells the story of a man that hasn’t had the best life and is in the process of losing said life in the hospital that he has been brought into with what looks to be a gunshot wound.  This is one that you will have to be in the right mood for, it’s not a happy go lucky song, it’s one that draws you in and makes you think about life in general.  You can find their new album Aetherlight from your digital vendor of choice.  Here’s Mt. Wolf’s music video through their VEVO YouTube channel – Richard:

Brad Byrd’s Music Video for “Highest Mountain”

Brad Byrd has that mid-range baritone voice that is easy to listen to.  With “Highest Mountain” he is working that mix of pop/country, with the pop sound being the most prominent style.  It kind of falls in between genres like John Denver’s music did, it’s pop but not quite pop and it’s country but not quite country.  For me this style works and I enjoyed the single with the instrumentals and vocals working really well together to fit Brad’s voice.  Brad’s music has been feature on The New Girl, Happy Endings, American Housewife, Ben & Kate, and Keeping Up with the Kardashians.  The music video fits the single with it taking place on an actual mountain.  It is also interesting that the director used a drone in the mountain’s to get the shots for the video.  Here’s Brad Byrd’s music video “Highest Mountain” from his album by the same name – Richard:

Miriam Tamar’s Live Music Video for “Come To Me”

Miriam Tamar is sharing with our listeners again.  This time it is her live performance at the Nest, where she performed her single “Come To Me”.  Miriam still uses her voice to full advantage which is pure smoothness to the ear.  With “Come to Me” we still get that international flare to her music that places it apart from other pop songs you might hear on your radio.  The music video is a live performance so it features Miriam and different members of her band.  Here’s Miriam Tamar’s “Come to Me” live music video for you to enjoy, through her YouTube channel, and then you can look her up on your digital vendor of choice for her EP Firedance – Richard:

Monogold’s Music Video for “Naked”

Monogold is sharing with our listeners their second music video.  This one is for their single “Naked”.  The single and music video remind me the early 1990’s.  The rhythm of the single just carries that feel with it and the singers blending with the instruments is the same 1990’s feel.  The music video has a vibe that seems to be an homage to the film Benny & Joon from the 1990’s as well.  I get this vibe because of the look and quirks of the lead in the video.  If you dig Monogold be sure to look for their EP Yolk available through digital vendors.  Here’s Monogold’s music video for their single “Naked” through their YouTube channel – Richard:

Kyle Motsinger’s Music Video for “Midwest Boy”

Kyle Motsinger, with his single “Midwest Boy”, has developed a piece that mixes a couple of time periods.  At the beginning of the single the piano gives it a 1920’s feel and Kyle cements that feeling in the music video.  The first minute, eight second of the music video feels like a 1920’s movie.  After the minute – eight mark the music and video shift into a modern day setting and hits a pop beat that mixes 1970’s and current trends…you can definitely pick up on his theatrical background with this single.  I’m sure Kyle is probably pulling from personal past, but his appearance and friendly face makes it hard for him to pull of a hard ridden Midwest boy.  It’s a fun single that once it starts clipping along and with the upbeat feel I enjoyed it and hope he carries that upbeat feeling into his other music.  Here’s the music video for “Midwest Boy” from Kyle Motsinger’s YouTube channel and then be sure to check out his album Far Away, available June 9, from your digital vendor of choice – Richard:

Rwby “I’m Gonna Be” AMV

Here’s a call back to a single in the late 1980’s with a current anime Rwby with “I’m Gonna Be” performed by The Proclaimers.  The Haras da Hippo edits together the single with scenes from Rwby for “Rwby AMV – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” and it was uploaded last year.  It’s just a fun song so enjoy from their YouTube channel:

Seven Day Sleep’s Music Video “Red Lipstick Murders”

Seven Day Sleep isn’t wanting our listeners to sleep.  They want you to check out their music video for their single “Red Lipstick Murders”.  The leads vocals are really crisp and clear and when the single starts the simple keystrokes sound eerie and then the heavy sound hits fast to lead into the verse which is more of a pop influence and then they band takes you into the metal sound with the chorus.  I really love the beat of this single and the different things that they bring into it.  Seven Day Sleep’s style for this single appeals to me and I think others will enjoy it as well.  The music video they have with the single is fun to watch as well.  All the way around a nicely packaged single.  Their EP A Home For Disgusting Fairies is due out on June 2 so keep an eye out on your digital vendors of choice.  Until then enjoy Seven Day Sleep’s music video for “Red Lipstick Murders” – Richard:

Nozart Releases Story Driven Single “Orphanage”

Nozart is back and this time they are sharing with our listeners their single “Orphanage”.  For fans of songs that are story based, which Logan and I are,  “Orphanage” is made for you.  The opening to this single itself feels like you are opening a book and getting ready to read a story.  The simple rhythm and instruments give this single a fairy tale aspect.  The vocals come through nice and clear and add to the story quality.  It is a slower song, but the quality overcomes that.  We are choosing to show the music video for “Orphanage” from Nozart’s YouTube channel.  One because it is an animated video and we love animation here and two the animation for the music video makes it feel like you are reading a Neil Gaiman story made by Tim Burton.  Props to Noah Kellman on a finely done song and music video.  Here’s Nozart’s “Orphanage” music video – Richard:
