I want to apologize to everyone for having such a slow week. We have had some fast turn arounds here. We had the holiday weekend last weekend and when we got back the recording area had water damage that we had to take care of and then make sure everything was good to go.
Then we had a family member on my wife’s side pass away on the holiday weekend, so today we are leaving out for the funeral this weekend.
The next post will be a podcast and then with everything quieting down next Monday we should be back to normal. Again I apologize for this lack of posts this week. I’ll see you on the flip side – Richard
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 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:
Eden Warsaw shared with us his single “Somebody Tell Me” a while back. Now he has the music video up for the single and he wanted to share it with our listeners as well. The video is what I call a band video, where the majority of the video focus’ on the band. So here’s Eden Warsaw’s music video for “Somebody Tell Me” through his YouTube channel – Richard:
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 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 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
