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:
Goodbye Christopher Robin looks to be one that any Winnie The Pooh fans will want to check out. It is rated “PG”, but by looking at the trailer, with it being about how the author came up with the beloved character, it might be a stretch for the younger members of the audience to set still through. But I’ve been wrong before and they might love every minute of it. Anyway here’s the trailer through MovieClips Trailers YouTube channel:
Haneri is sharing with our listeners her latest “Buring Up” singles music video. Haneri is venturing well into the pop arena with this single. The music has a 1980’s style to it and her voice comes through nice and clear, with just a bit of smokiness to it, which makes for a great listening experience. The song takes on a serious message about abusive relationships, but wraps it up in a catchy rhythm that captures the listeners attention. Ryan Tan directed the video for Haneri which she is also the lead in. The video takes her and the watcher on a journey from her apartment through the city discovering that some things aren’t always what they seem. Very well done all the way around and I can’t wait to see what else Haneri shares. Here’s “Burning Up” Haneri’s music video through her YouTube channel for you to enjoy – Richard:

Matt Koelsch is sharing with our listener’s again. This time it is for his single “Incomplete” which is a beautiful acoustical piece. His folk style lends well to this piece with the guitar as the main instrument. The cherry on top is the chorus, when it comes in you get a warm fuller sound with the addition of what sounds like a violin and cello. This is a slower single, but oh so good. I love the sound and Matt’s voice. Here’s Matt Koelsch’s “Incomplete”, from his EP entitled Thinking of You through SoundCloud and be sure to pick up his EP available now! – Richard:
When a cool commercial comes out I like to post them. Wal-Mart has a very cool commercial for one of their back to school ads. It features Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Pink & Red Power Rangers, and Bumble Bee & Optimus Prime Transformers all set to Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again”! It’s just a fun video. Here it is from Wal-Mart’s YouTube channel:
Goldmyth is sharing with our listeners her music video for her single “Has to Be Better”. The style of this single is a techno or electronica slow melody. The instruments are not as brass because of the slow feel and Goldmyth uses a breathy voice for the verse and then transitions into a clear tone in the chorus. I like the breathyness in this single because it adds weight to the single. “Has to Be Better” is basically about a couple that has broken up and one party wants to get back together and the other is saying if this happens it “Has to Be Better”. The music video that was shot for this is a washed out club scene in my eyes. It has the neon and other type of lighting. They single does pick up its rhythm half way through the song, but it is still clearly a slow thoughtful song. The EP, Faded Dreams, that this single is from is available, from your digital vendor of choice. So check out Goldmyth’s music video for “Has to Be Better” from her YouTube channel and then look for her EP – Richard:
Another remake of an older franchise. This time it’s Bruce Willis taking on the role that Charles Bronson made popular in Death Wish. They of course have updated it to modern times, but the question is still the same concerning vigilantes. I’ll definitely watch because you’re talking about a guy that loves the Punisher and Executioner characters. Here’s the trailer through MovieClips Trailers YouTube channel:
