Brett Dennen Shares Inspiring Video for “Already Gone”
Today, acclaimed singer-songwriter Brett Dennen has shared the awe-inspiring video for his hit single “Already Gone”. The video, directed by Craig Allen was created by the creative agency CALLEN. A branding think tank responsible for last years interactive music video for the song Stained Glass for Real Estate that recently was awarded two Webby Awards. The video features 80-year-old Vera, who has a vast bucket list to complete, but has yet to complete it because she’s been busy with life’s daily tasks and structure. Dennen then steps in and takes over Vera’s chores and duties so that she can check off her bucket list. She does everything from skydiving to streaking, with explosions, confetti, and more along the way.
“We did our own mini casting search / dream search and talked to different people about what their perfect day would be if they had the time available to do it, and why they couldn’t do it,” shared Dennen. “We chose Vera, because she had the craziest, most fun sounding ideas. The only thing holding her back was household chores, which I volunteered to do. This is a part of our year long campaign for spreading positivity. I think it’s important that we make the time to do the things we really want to do. It inspires more good things to come.”
ECSTATIC VISION debut new video “Troublemaker”
“Troublemaker” is ECSTATIC VISION’s take on 1974’s Zam Rock classic from Chrissy Zebby Tembo and the Ngozi Family. New album “Under The Influence”, a collection of six raw, fuzzy, psychedelic slabs of cosmic rock, covering tracks by some of their biggest influences: the primitive stoner doom sounds that came out of Zambia in the early/mid-70s also known as Zam Rock, godfathers of space rock Hawkwind and early kings of Detroit rock’n’ roll MC5, all delivered with EV’s signature bone-crushing, blown-out in-all-the-right-ways recording style.
Mark Lanegan & Duke Garwood Share New Track “Save Me”
The record’s 12 songs are spectral and sinewy, often defined by the spaces in between the sounds. A ghost’s whistle weaves itself around a pulsing single note on “Lonesome Infidel”; “Feast To Famine’s” hard luck story floats above a guitar part so strung out and washed with distortion it’s become barely recognizable. It’s soul music for anyone who’s long since left the crossroads.
Wielding a casual menace and a hypnotic flow, ATL wunderkind SG Tip is Slaughter Gang’s next up. Squadding up in the Georgia woods with a couple dozen of his best friends, including his mentor 21 Savage, SG Tip flexes in “Lifestyle,” his latest video. Produced by Richie Souf, “Lifestyle” is a low-key hustler’s anthem, allowing tip to show off his street bonafides over a melodic trap beat. Premiered by Complex, “Lifestyle” is the latest video from Block Boy Tip, Tip’s sophomore mixtape, following the shiny video for “Mink Coat.” Brimming with headphone-ready trap production from Richie Souf, Trellgotwings, Tre Trax, J Rich, and more, Block Boy Tip is a catchy chronicle of Tip’s lightning quick come-up.
