GRANDPARENTS NEW VIDEO
“Summers in Portland, Oregon are fleeting moments in time that seem to end as soon as they have begun. Filmmaker Emma Hall-Martin lovingly filtered this concoction through the instant nostalgia of 8mm film, hoping it would yield appropriately melted results,” said guitarist Dylan White about their new video for “Kids In The Hall.”
Capturing the quintessential Portland summer experience by hanging out at the river with friends, performing at a house show, lighting off fireworks, and eating a burger in the bathtub (everyone does that right?), Grandparents give us one last look at summer before the rain clouds move in.

This time she joined up with the production team consisting of Kurt Maas & Dave Rave Ogilvie to deliver more crunchy beats and dark atmospheres.
SURFER BLOOD NEW VIDEO
Though the video might seem strange, The Guardian points out that its story may be rooted in truth: its protagonist is discovered by a big shot music exec — who is later shown surrounded by money while his star signee faces a downward spiral — and Surfer Blood similarly endured a frustrating time at their previous home of Warner Brothers before returning to their DIY roots.
WALKING WITH THEIVES NEW SINGLE

VOID OF SLEEP ALBUM TEASER
“New World Orderrepresents to us a new culmination of our sound,” issues of the band of their latest compositions. “Now more than ever you can call it visionary, sludgy and progressive. It’s an occult, esoteric and wicked metaphor to the modern society as we consider it: with no positive expectations of the future of this world. This album embraces the concept of evil in its purest form. Since the beginning, man has been doomed to consume and enslave and destroy his own kind in an absurd discord to the final extinction.”
BABY BUGGY AND REBECCA TAYLOR PARTNER TO BENEFIT FAMILIES IN NEED
Baby Buggy, a national assistance and support organization for families in need, and Rebecca Taylor have teamed up to celebrate the launch of the Victorian Inspired Capsule Collection and offer supporters across the country the opportunity to shop for a cause, just in time for the holiday gift-buying season.
Beginning September 24, 2015, through October 15, 2015, use CODE RT4BB at check-out when shopping the Collection in stores and online, and 20 percent of the proceeds will directly benefit Baby Buggy.
Proceeds from the partnership will help change the lives of families in cities across the country by directly funding Baby Buggy’s efforts to curb generational poverty.

The Victorian capsule was inspired by Rebecca’s love of the era. The fabrics, pintucks and cotton eyelet details that were specific to that time period reflect Rebecca’s personal style and the collection DNA. She wanted to design a capsule collection emphasizing the beautiful intricate embroideries and craftsmanship juxtaposed with modern techniques and fabrications. The collection delivers a perfectly curated Victoriana vibe while remaining relevant and contemporary. The collection ranges from $325 to $595 and is available in all Rebecca Taylor Stores.
DAVID LANE RELEASES NEW EP
Country rocker David Lane is set to release his sophomore EP Hello Georgia Oct. 23 via MuSick Recordings with the video and single “Blackberry Wine” out Sept. 16. Lane co-wrote all the songs on the EP, including five with Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Member Roger Murrah, who also produced the project. The two began working together in the fall of 2013 as co-writers, a relationship that quickly evolved into Murrah signing on to produce an entire EP, “David is a pleasure to work with, which has made the process a no-brainer for me.”
Hello Georgia kicks off with “Recession”, a hard hitting tell-it-like-it-is mid tempo song about the working man’s struggle, properly preparing the listener that this is not your typical Nashville country recording. Hailing from southern Georgia, Lane pays homage to his hometown state on the title track “Hello Georgia” showcasing his emotional lyrics and songwriting craft. The up-tempo single “Blackberry Wine” is an obvious lead from the EP; Lane shines vocally and cements his own unique blend of country-rock, somewhere between Lynyrd Skynyrd and Zac Brown Band. The projected second single is “San Francisco and You” ─ a haunting ballad about love lost in the City By The Bay, where Lane and Murrah’s lyric and melody prowess shines brightly.
DAVID SABASTIAN AND HIPHOPDX PREMIERE “SHIT JUST GOT REAL” MUSIC VIDEO

Directed by Alexander Hadden and David Sabastian and executive produced by St. Gian and the Anti Society, the socially conscience project addresses rebellion brewing amid the current events of social injustice.
OUTASIGHT “BIG TROUBLE”
To say it’s been a big summer for Outasight would be quite an understatement. Since the Billboard premiere of “The Wild Life” back in April, the track’s uptempo funk, positive vibes and huge hook were the undeniable summer anthem, being heard everywhere from Bud Light’s summer ad campaign to Dancing With The Stars to just about every other stereo you heard on the beach or at a rooftop BBQ. Now that we’re post Labor Day, and the summer has unofficially ended, the LA-by-way-of-Yonkers crooner has set himself up for a Fall that will dwarf the undeniable buzz around OU created this past summer.
AUTOGRAF “RUNNING” SINGLE
Following up on the success of their first original “Dream,” Chicago trio Autograf returns with their latest single “Running,” out now as a free download. Bursting with vibrancy, “Running” is playfully soulful, filled with vivacious vocals, percussions and vibraphones to create their signature funk-infused vibes.
Initially an art-based project, Autograf looks to return to their personal manifesto of “making music for art.” Creating a distinct and original artwork to accompany each forthcoming release, each painting the trio puts to canvas serves as a method through which to further evoke and interpret the spirit of each song. The first in a series, the pop-art inspired artwork for “Running” appears to contain the image of Coco Chanel, a female icon who sought to break societal norms and conventions.

“WERE YOU BORN INTO THE WRONG RACE?”
Veteran television casting director Jacqui Pitman is a true powerhouse in the reality TV world when it comes to finding the right talent for some of TV’s hottest shows. Most recently, her agency, Pitman Casting Inc., has been selected by Screaming Flea Productions, the producers of the critically acclaimed television series “Hoarders,” to conduct a nationwide casting search for a new groundbreaking television series which asks “Were you born into the wrong race?” Pitman is in search of people who genuinely feel they were born into the wrong racial group. Selected parties, who truly believe they have been misidentified racially, will appear on the thought provoking series airing on a major cable network. Screaming Flea Productions, one of the country’s leading producers of non-fiction programming, will produce the series.
The casting call, which is open to all nationalities, is a particularly sensitive one in light of recent current events. Both Rachel Dolezal, the former president of a local NAACP chapter and Shaun King, a prominent leader in the Black Lives Matter movement, have instigated far reaching conversation and made mainstream news headlines with unresolved issues concerning racial ambiguity. Both parties have been accused of masquerading as African American.
Interested persons of all races, who are experiencing a racial identity crisis, should apply by Friday, September 25, 2015 at https://pitmancastinginc.formstack.com/forms/race_project or call 818-666-3606 for more details.
