Stitched Up Heart Release The Music Video For “Warrior”
“I’m really excited about this video because I was able to come up with almost the entire creative vision for it. From wardrobe, makeup, to cinematography. We wanted to go for a visual aesthetic similar to the movie 300. The director, Ron Underwood, went above and beyond taking every idea I had and making it more than I ever dreamed it to be! I’m very happy with the end result!,” states Stitched Up Heart frontwoman Alecia ‘Mixi’ Demner about the music video.
PORN Rings in the New Year with A New Single “A Lovely Day”
In this final act of the Mr Strangler Trilogy and No Monsters in God’s Eyes album series, the convicted serial killer Mr Strangler is facing his death, imprisoned and waiting for his execution while also being studied by psychiatrists. Even though he knows he is doomed, Mr Strangler is escaping his cell mentally, trying to figure out how he can physically escape and get his revenge. For him, if there is a will, there is a way and that’s why for him it is a lovely day. This is a song about hope and perseverance. A little hope can enlighten a miserable day.
Opening up on the story behind the song, Sofia explained how the idea for the track came from the “cheesiest” quote she found – “If you can’t love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love somebody else?” She continues, “I wrote this song while going through a breakup, just admitting that you’re through can be a pretty hard thing to do, but some things can’t be locked out and need to be experienced”.
BLEEKER releases “Disaster”
“Disaster” accepts that life is chaotic and messy, and all we can do is keep moving. Over a wall of electric guitar, singer Taylor Perkins sings with both angst and apathy, letting us know that sometimes it’s okay to feel bad. In all this chaos, Perkins wonders what it would be like to be above it all–he identifies the urge we all have to “just want to drive away.” With its soaring choruses and dynamic changes, “Disaster,” is a true rock ballad that will speak to all audiences.
THE WHITE BUFFALO AKA AMERICAN SINGER/SONGWRITER JAKE SMITH SIGNS WORLDWIDE DEAL WITH SNAKEFARM RECORDS/UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP
The White Buffalo, the touring and recording persona of American singer/songwriter Jake Smith, has signed a global deal with Snakefarm Records — a young label within the Universal Music Group spotlighting roots, country rock, blues, and Americana.
Raised in California with an abiding love of both classic country and punk rock, Emmy nominee Smith has been pursuing his creative instincts under The White Buffalo banner for the better part of two decades. From the start, the guitarist set about establishing a path away from trend and genre, touching on a variety of musical strands — from dark folk through to urgent rock ‘n’ roll — all the while maintaining a strong, signature voice: a rich, conspiratorial, timber-shakin’ baritone that smacks of hard miles travelled and late-night stories told.
