Pearl Lion’s Hot Music Video for “NYC”

Pearl Lion is the persona of the lead guitarist from the Saturday Night Live Band and he is sharing with our listeners his newest music video, for his single “NYC”.  You know I love me some instrumental music and Pearl Lion gives it to us in spades with this rock instrumental piece.  “NYC” starts out with a hard driving beat and doesn’t let up.  If you need something to get you going for the day this single will do it for you.  There are voices in the single, but they are used as instruments as well, with no lyrics to be sung.  The music video takes on the hard driving force and gives the viewer a look at some of the dynamics of New York City.  Falling Awake Films directs the film and Ashley Smith is used as the primary character of the film.  This video has some steam coming off of it as well with a little “afternoon delight”.  And with our sight being interested in comic books I have to mention that the way they dress Ashley for the video is really reminiscent of Harley Quinn’s look from the Suicide Squad film.  Here’s Pearl Lion’s music video for “NYC”, from his EP Dark, for you to enjoy through his YouTube Vevo 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:

Late Night Episode Releases “Talk About Love”

Late Night Episode is a new alt/rock band that is hitting the Summer with a great feeling song, with their single “Talk About Love”.  This single just has a fun rhythm that gets into your body and makes you want to move.  If your like me I dance in my chair even when I listened to “Talk About Love”.  The vocals and the synth echo takes me back to high school in the 1980’s – earlier 1990’s.  Just a fun single for the Summer time.  The group is working on an EP so keep your eyes open on your digital vendors for when they release it.  As of this time I have no date or name of their EP to give you.  But here is a taste of Late Night Episode and their single “Talk About Love” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Lovely.The.Band’s Lyric Video for “Broken”

With “Broken” Lovely.The.Band is letting everyone know they are here.  They are sharing with us their Lyric Video for “Broken” which feels like a music video and if you take out the lyrics from the screen it is a music video, because most lyric videos key on the lyrics, but with this one it gives you movement behind it.  The single “Broken” is a nice clean pop single that, if I remember right, is similar to One Republic’s style on “All the Right Moves”.  Very catchy rhythm and clear vocals make this one fun to listen to.  So know it’s your turn to take a listen to Lovely.The.Band’s lyric video for “Broken” – Richard:

Anna Rose’s “Bury Me Deep” Lyric Video

Anna Rose is back with her sultry voice with “Bury Me Deep”.  If you remember from our podcast featuring Anna’s EP Strays in the Cut the Crew really enjoyed Anna’s style.  She delivers on the rock aspect, but with “Bury Me Deep” she uses her voice and the instrumentality to put together a slower more soulful sound.  The lyric video is done in grey scale with the lyrics fading in and out over the multiple imagery that the director has chosen for the video.  This makes for a more interesting lyric video.  If you haven’t check out Anna’s EP yet, check out this sample she is sharing with us through her YouTube channel and then find her on your digital content vendor of choice.  Here’s Anna Rose’s “Bury Me Deep” lyric video – Richard:

Ryon’s World Latest Single “Grandmas Car”

Ryon’s World is sharing their island infused single “Grandmas Car”, featuring Stu Da Boi.  “Grandmas Car” is a fun little diddy, but be warned for those with sensitive ears, otherwise just have fun with this single and get your body grooving with the beat as you enjoy Spring Break.  Here’s Ryon’s World’s “Grandmas Car” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Mt. Wolf’s “The Electric” Lyric Video

Mt. Wolf is sharing with our listeners their single “The Electric” lyric video.  Mt. Wolf’s lead singer has a nice bass register voice.  This can be a little limiting as I know first hand as a bass as well.  The styles of music you sing you have to sing well or it just won’t come off good.  With “The Electric” Mt. Wolf knows where they want to be for this single and hit it out of the park for me.  The beginning and and ending are a little drawn out that some might not have the patience for, but the lyric video really assists the single in this instance.  For the lyric video the director used old military films for the background and it works really well.  To me Mt. Wolf’s style is a folk/pop sound for this single and I’m interested in what else they might put out on their as yet un-titled album that is in the works.  Mt. Wolf has also been confirmed for SXSW this year so check them out if you will be attending.  Until then here’s Mt. Wolf’s lyric video for “The Electric” through CRC Music’s YouTube channel – Richard:

Griffin Oskar’s Title Track “Hostage”

Griffin Oskar is sharing with our listeners his title track from his EP “Hostage”.  This single hit me just right.  Griffin has a nice clear voice and the rhythm is catchy and got my interest right away.  “Hostage has a pop/folk feel to it and as everyone knows I enjoy that type of music.  The single also has elements of hip hop in it as well.  Griffin’s Hostage EP has already been released so take a moment and check out “Hostage” through SoundCloud and if you enjoy it like I did be sure to support him by purchasing his EP – Richard:

PEP latest single “Get Physical”

PEP wants everyone to enjoy their single “Get Physical”.  If PEP’s sound is consistent with what they are doing with “Get Physical” they could be a fun group for me to listen to.  The group has a few different styles going on with this single.  They have a tribal beat going on that you would hear in something like The Lion King, but when they verse comes in I automatically go back to the ’50’s and thinking of how the Shangri-Las sang with “Leader of the Pack”.  Then with the chorus you get a pop feel that gives you a ’70’s vibe.  It doesn’t seem like all of these types of music would work, but it does and I’m eager to hear what PEP does next.  Here’s “Get Physical”, by PEP, through SoundCloud – Richard:
