Video Premiere: Wildbirds & Peacedrums “Keep Some Hope”

wildbirds-peacedrums

I’m excited to debut this video from one of my favourite bands, the husband and wife duo of Andreas Werliin and Mariam Wallentin, better known as Wildbirds & Peacedrums. They have such a raw energy, unsettling in the best way possible, driven mostly by Mariam’s vocals and lots of drumming from both of them. If you’re unfamiliar with their music here’s a couple amazing live examples to watch here and here (the 6-min mark of the second link gets me pumped every time).

“Keep Some Hope” is the infectious new single off of their latest album Rhythm. The video was directed by Anders Malmberg, you can watch it below!

Hiro Murai does not sleep! It’s barely been two weeks since that gorgeous FlyLo video he directed hit the net, and he’s already followed it up with an unpredictable video for Childish Gambino’s Telegraph Ave. When this video starts you’ll think you know what you’re in for, but watch till the end (trust me).

Music Video Premiere: Benjamin Verdoes “So Bari”

Benjamin Verdoes (formerly of Mt. Saint Helens Vietnam Band, and half of Iska Dhaaf) released a solo album at the beginning of the year called “The Evil Eye” and I’m excited to premiere the first video from the album.

“So Bari” is sung entirely in Somali and the video, directed by Tristan Seniuk, feels very much like a play as it features a series of tableaus of an imaginary place. Some nice art direction here; they did a lot with very little. Watch the video below!

Kutiman Samples Amateur Youtube Musicians to Create “Give It Up”

kutiman-giveitup

Ophir Kutiel aka Kutiman, is the Youtube generation’s DJ Shadow. He scours Youtube for obscure musical treasures; kids playing piano, guitar tutorials, anything he can use to make a song. Somehow he is able to weave the unrelated clips into something completely new. I’ve blogged about him numerous times but it all started with his project Thru You.

5 years later, Kutiman is set to release his follow up, Thru You Too, and his first single “Give It Up” is a masterpiece. Watch the video below!
