New Low Cut Connie video: Hey! Little Child

Video: Low Cut Connie video: “Hey! Little Child” From Dirty Pictures (Part 2), out now on Contender Records. I heard a segment about this band on NPR last month and upon the recommendation of Ann Powers I checked them out. But the song I listened to didn’t live up to her description of “the essence … Continue reading New Low Cut Connie video: Hey! Little Child

New Jess Williamson video: Wild Rain

Video: Jess Williamson – “Wild Rain” Directed by Eli Welbourne. From Cosmic Wink, out now on Mexican Summer. This is a dreamy slow burner from Jess Williamson whose previous video “I See The White” was moody and impressive. “Wild Rain” is driven by a tremoloed electric piano and Williamson’s sleepy vocals. You say there’s two … Continue reading New Jess Williamson video: Wild Rain

New Matt Costa video: I Remember It Well #2

Video: Matt Costa – “I Remember It Well #2” Directed by Pamela Littky. From Santa Rosa Fangs, out now on Dangerbird. I like Matt Costa.

The song “Sunshine” taught my little guy about harmonizing, or … Continue reading New Matt Costa video: I Remember It Well #2

New H.C. McEntire video: Baby’s Got the Blues

Video: H.C. McEntire – “Baby’s Got the Blues” Directed by Jared Hogan. From Lionheart, out now on Merge. I would imagine that H.C. McEntire gets tired of comparisons to Lucinda Williams. But whatever. If you dig Williams’ literary sensuality and soulful vocals, you’re probably going to appreciate McEntire. Give me a dog in a fight … Continue reading New H.C. McEntire video: Baby’s Got the Blues

Number One Records: Psycho

Video: Post Malone – “Psycho” ft. Ty Dolla $ign Directed by James DeFina. From Beerbongs & Bentleys, out now on Republic/UMG. What kind of dorkus malorkus gets a tattoo of a neck beard?

New Beths video: Future Me Hates Me

Video: The Beths – “Future Me Hates Me” Directed by Christopher Stratton. From Future Me Hates Me, out August 10 on Carpark. What’s up with Australasia? Why do New Zealand and Australia generate such clever guitar-based pop music? Future heartbreak, future headaches Wide-eyed nights late lying awake With future cold shakes from stupid mistakes Future … Continue reading New Beths video: Future Me Hates Me

Ahead of the upcoming release of their new album, Digesting Mirror, Quasar Wut-Wut is “rolling out a few confections old and new.” The band says, “This is a remastered HD version of our first music video off the 1998 stone-cold classic Jalopy.

New Lindsay Lou video: Satellite

Video: Lindsay Lou – “Satellite” From Southland, out now. Lindsay Lou Rilko and her band the Flatbellys started in Michigan playing traditional bluegrass.

New Regrettes video: Helpless

Video: The Regrettes – “Helpless” Single available now. I might be the last person on the planet who is completely unfamiliar with the Hamilton musical. I read the Ron Chernow book, but I dunno.
