VIDEO PREMIERE: DONNA BUMMER “I LIKE TO WATCH”

July 23rd, 2015

Lovely and yet existentially unsettling video from Donna Bummer, who performs with Tommy Santee Klaws and Bloody Death Skull, too. Much like the song itself, this video (by Chris Carlone) seems simple, and yet really calls all the fragile works of humankind into question. (Or is that just us?) Album release show this Sunday, July 26, at the Virgilmore info here!

July 20th, 2015

Here's a haunting video to go with the haunting song "Dream Has No Friend" by L.A. tenor saxophonist Jon Armstrong and his 22-piece jazz orchestra, directed by Lorena Endara of Producciones Con Sal, a production company she co-founded with partner Eduardo Arenas of L.A. RECORD favorites Chicano Batman. This nine-minute video is an almost slow-motion glide through an L.A. day and an L.A. night, delivered with the rhythm of a short story as much as the rhythm of a musical piece.
