CRAZY ARM – Release Video for “Brave Starts Here”

Putting viewers into the paws of Crazy Arm’s canine pal, Buddy, the video for ‘Brave Starts Here’ uses a GoPro camera to capture a unique dog’s-eye-view of the world. Filmed in the band’s native Devon, from being let loose at the beach to walks in the park, the visuals leave the impression that perhaps ‘a dog’s life’ might not be so bad after all…


Always wearing his heart on his sleeve and with sincerity in both his lyrics and conversations, his recent project Homework is a cathartic body of work, which acknowledges the moments in life that Sam has struggled to deal with and how these situations have changed him for the better.

I Break Horses Share The Field Remix Of “Death Engine” || ‘Warnings’ Out Now On Bella Union

If I Break Horses’ third album holds you in its grip like a great film, it’s no coincidence. Faced with making the follow-up to 2014’s plush Chiaroscuro, Horses’s Maria Lindén decided to take the time to make something different, with an emphasis on instrumental, cinematic music. As she watched a collection of favorite films on her computer (sound muted) and made her own soundtrack sketches, these sonic workouts gradually evolved into something more: “It wasn’t until I felt an urge to add vocals and lyrics,” says Lindén, “that I realized I was making a new I Break Horses album.”

Ron Gallo Shares “White Christmas” (Irving Berlin Cover) Via Glide

A few years ago around Christmas I sat on the floor solo in front of a TV fireplace and listened to the Dean Martin Christmas Album 12 full times on repeat then recorded this cover. I love the old crooner stuff. It’s like a blanket. With how 2020 has been, I’ve leaned heavy into nostalgia as a mental survival tactic so figured I’d give this track a proper release and used a photo of me as a kid on Christmas as the cover art as another way to return to what seemed like “simpler times”.
