VIDEO PREMIERE: CUTTY FLAM “RUNAWAY”

May 19th, 2017

L.A's Cutty Flam have a new album out on Burger next week, and here's the adorable and ambitious video to celebrate: "Runaway" doesn't have too much to do with Del Shannon, although it does have some heartrending falsetto, but in five minutes it'll tell you plenty about worlds within worlds—or selves within selves?—and how the way in is the way out, and it's got some surprise pyrotechnics, too! Anybody who ever saw a little bit of themselves in Pee Wee's Playhouse or Crybaby—or sang along with Mickey and Sylvia or played five seconds of Super Mario Bros.!—will recognize this particular neighborhood right awat. Shapes of Sound is out May 26 on Burger, and they'll have a record release party the same day at the Hi-Hat in Highland Park!

VIDEO PREMIERE: AHEE “GET HIGHER”

May 18th, 2017

DJ/producer/polymath Ahee (a.k.a. Chris Adams) is nothing if not prolific, releasing multiple projects on multiple platforms year after year after year. And here's another manifestation of his vision in the form of an uplifting little animated video that comes off like Don Hertzfeldt with a (spoiler) happy (and cosmic) ending. "Get Higher" was the lead track on his 2016 release Bass Ship, and this video was put together across nine supremely involved months by Ahee with character design by Dome of Doom's Wylie Cable and animation by Taybrook Mills of Obscuro Studios, with animation assistance by Brian Duffy. You can visit Ahee here and check in with his Dome of Doom work—which is just one part of his mega-discography—here!

VIDEO PREMIERE: TRACY BRYANT “PARACHUTE”

May 17th, 2017

L.A.'s Tracy Bryant is back with his first new work since last year's excellent solo full-length Subterranean, and it's a monster—or really, like the video depicts, it's a ghost, able to move lightly and go where nothing else can go. (Which kinda fits the "Parachute" title nicely, too.)

VIDEO PREMIERE: ETA x TOMEMITSU “OLD AGE / PERPETUAL BABES”

May 1st, 2017

L.A. producer (and all-round creative renaissance man—he's a filmmaker and musician as well) ETA is back with longtime collaborator Tomemitsu (whose split with Alexei Shishkin hit last month) for this extremely dreamy lyric video to "Old Age/Perpetual Babes." This is stuff for twilight at the tide line, and for moments when you make peace with the ebb and flow of forces greater than yourself. ETA and his band PAST HYPE will perform with Tomemitsu on May 19 at Lot 1 Cafe in Echo Park as part of a series showcasing Asian-American musicians for Asian American Pacific Heritage Month, and ETA will put out his PAST HYPE EP later this month as well.
