VIDEO PREMIERE: RHYS LANGSTON “UNDERCLASS DESIGN” (FEATURING JEREMIAH JAE)

May 25th, 2017

L.A. RECORD cover alum Rhys Langston teams up with fellow traveler Jeremiah Jae for "Underclass Design," a smoldering slow-burn of a song and video that's like watching a rocket ignite and launch in slow-mo, while the mutilated VHS visuals underscore just how rotten the world can get. ("I'm hoping people like the inflammatory content—literally and figuratively," he says.) You can stream and download via the SoundCloud above, and you can see Rhys perform at Union on June 28 at the Bananas showcase, and his Aggressively Ethnically Ambiguous album will be out later this summer. Full credits below:

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.)
