OL’ TIME MOONSHINE Release Video For “Hexslinger”

OL’ TIME MOONSHINE have unleashed the spellbinding new video for “Hexslinger”, taken from the latest album Magic. The quartet deliver a rockin’ & rollin’, dynamic exploration of all that is heavy, hooky, and full of groove.

“The song ‘Hexslinger’ has been a favourite in OL’ TIME MOONSHINE’s live set since its introduction, and was an obvious choice to be the second single and video from ‘Magic’. The lyrics are loosely based on the lore of ‘A Book of Tongues’ by author Gemma Files; the song weaves the fantastical tale of a magic-wielding priest and his outlaw gang battling an ancient goddess in the Wild West, played out over a rolling verse and crushing chorus. We hope you love ‘Hexslinger’ as much as we do!”

Schumacher features Volstead’s Emporium, an underground speakeasy in Minneapolis. The video plays off of the lyrics which address feeling trapped in a melodrama.

Danelle Sandoval’s new musical chapter begins with her latest single “Cold” which is her most vulnerable to date. She confides, “I’ve always been curious about how relationships can just flip a switch and how intimacy can be so difficult for everyone, when most of us just wanna feel close to each other.

Jack Swoon hits his stride with seductive new single ‘Come Over’

True to Swoon’s talent for melding genres, ‘Come Over’ lays down a jazzy bassline over a garage-infused house groove packed full of sweet falsetto vocal hooks. “I wish you would come over / Don’t you know that I want you” goes the slinky, pitched-up chorus as delicate flutes fill out the mix.
