Psychic Friend Releases Video for “We Do Not Belong” October 6, 2013

Psychic Friend is a band that should be on everybody’s watch list.  William Schwartz, who also fronts Imperial Teen, called upon an old college buddy to help make a video for the second single off of My Rocks Are Dreams.  That college buddy was Sarah Silverman and the video is “We Do Not Belong.”  Based roughly on a Nova documentary called Secret of the Wild Child, about a young girl who had spent her entire developmental period without societal contact. The young girl, played by Silverman, responds to nothing scientists present for stimulation until music is introduced. “We Do Not Belong” stands as the backdrop of Silverman’s character’s recovery, as she dances throughout the last half of the song, leaving Schwartz’s scientific role feeling both proud and accomplished.  This song and Psychic Friend’s music is infectious with a vintage sound and notes of melodic 70’s songwriting.


Who’s Betty Who? September 22, 2013


The next up and coming pop icon, that’s who!  I have been obsessed with her music for a couple of months now.  She reminds me of early Madonna or an 80’s pop diva, mixed with Katy Perry and a touch of Robyn.  Born in Australia, Betty Who (Jessica Newham) moved to the States to attend Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan, followed by Berklee College of Music in Boston where she met producer Peter Thomas.  She now lives in New York City.  You might have already heard one of her songs without even know it.  Have you seen the video of the marriage proposal with the flash mob?  The song they were dancing to was “Somebody Loves You” by Betty Who.  If you haven’t yet seen the video, check it out here (if you’re like me, grab a tissue).  

Since the video posted on 09/11/2013, the video has 10,066,035 and keeps on growing!  On 09/13/213 she performed a sold-out headlining show at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn with JOYWAVE.  Obviously this was going to grab the attention of some major’s, but RCA made the deal.  Read all the details on here.  Her EP The Movement is still available as a free download on SoundCloud here.  My favorite track fluctuates, but right now it’s “High Society.”  Check out a live performance of the song at NYC’s Pianos last month.  


NGHBRS Premiere First Ever Instagram Music Video September 20, 2013

Long Island Rock outfit, NGHBRS, have released the first-ever Instagram Music Video for their single, “Hold Up Girl,” on The Wall Street Journal, who called it “the cleverest DIY video since OK Go,” Check it out here: In less than 24 hours, the video has acquired thousands of views and wide praise from the music and tech industry-buzzing about the video’s unique concept, perfect execution and the standout track itself, which NYLON Guys calls, “the perfect backyard BBQ tune and full on festival jam.” Instagram has already championed the band’s creative use of the app, tweeting out the video over 26 million followers, fueling a stream of supporting tweets fromThird Eye Blind keyboardist Alex Kopp, Green Bay Packers player Greg Van Roten and Bonnaroo Music Festival‘s official account. Check out the video and be sure to catch NGHBRS on tour this fall with Young Statues.
NGHBRS frontman, Ian Kenny had the idea of using Instagram’s new video function for a music video, but credits the band’s drummer, Jordan Schnieder for pushing the band to follow through as the foursome shot hundreds of individual videos for each scene they cut into the Instagram app.  “It was really challenging to pull off on our own,” says Schneider, who also edited the video. “It was like we were solving some strange two-month long math equation.” The band had to film each scene, map out how to seamlessly time getting from one video to the next. When asked how the band was able to pull that off, Schneider says, “We dove in head first, drank a lot of coffee and refused to sleep. It was totally worth it.”
Hold Up Girl” is the single off NGHBRS released debut LP, Twenty One Rooms, which was released onJuly 16th via Paper + Plastick Records.  Twenty One Rooms is the follow-up studio release to the band’s successful 2010 EP, Hellomind, which earned them high praise, including a write-up in The New York Times and spots on “Top 100 Bands To Watch Out For in 2013” lists from Alternative Press and Purchase Twenty One Rooms on iTunes here:
Fusing elements of alternative rock with catchy melodies, impressive musicianship, rhodes keyboards, and 90’s grunge, 
NGHBRS has made it their mission to always separate themselves from the pack. Formed in the summer of 2009, the band revolves around a strong work ethic, an intense practice schedule, and a constant fire under their belt. Drummer Jordan Schneider and guitarist Thomas Fleischmann have been playing in bands together for the previous 8 years, when they began to collaborate with vocalist/keyboard player Ian Kenny. Excited and intrigued about their new-found exploration, they moved into a practice space even before writing their first song. The band acquired bass player Eric Vivelo, and wrote and recorded their debut EP Hellomind, which was independently released in the summer of 2010. The band’s infectious sound and theatrical live show have landed them on national tours and shows at some of New York City’s most renowned venues such as Irving PlazaHighline Ballroom and Gramercy Theatre.

Music We Can’t Get Enough Of June 9, 2013

John & Brittany is Philadelphia’s latest unique songwriting duo.  Check out their video for hit track “Paper Planes” off their 2013 album Start Sinning.  John & Brittany tell us, ““Paper Planes” is our first music video, and it’s about our inspirations and aspirations. It’s also a pretty accurate portrayal of the dynamic in John & Brittany; we fight a lot but it’s all for the love of rock n’ roll.”

I’ve just started getting into Freak Owls, but can’t seem to get enough of “Optimistic Automatic.”  I woke up the other day with the song in my head and made it my Thursday anthem.

Found another song to add to the ever-growing summer soundtrack, “If You Didn’t See Me (Then You Weren’t On The Dancefloor)” by Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.  For those of you who are Arrested Development fans – check out  Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.’s very own Daniel Zott in Episode 13 of the new season out now on Netflix exclusively. Danny leads George Michael’s band in the episode’s opening scene. Here’s what he had to see about the experience:

When I showed up on set Mitchell Hurwitz looked at me and thought I was the wrong guy. It turned out that my hair had just gotten too huge. After taming my mane I got to meet Michael Cera who was playing the piano in between takes. I’m so grateful that I was able to watch a truly talented actor work out his lines and ad-lib in real time. I’m still not sure I was the guy they wanted, but I made the most of my one line and even ad-libbed a blank stare into MC’s eyes.” – Daniel Zott, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

Latest Jukebox the Ghost Video January 22, 2013

“Don’t Let Me Fall Behind” is a perky pop ditty by indie rockers Jukebox the Ghost, though the upbeat piano and catchy hook belie more melancholy subject matter.  The video is a wonderful accompaniment, exploring the yearning for a former love.  One of the best visual flourishes dappled throughout is a film projecting onto falling sheets of paper, creating the image of pieces of memories cascading to the floor.   – Daniel Edward
