God Damn are back and yet again are finding new ways to elegantly destroy your eardrums with the track ‘Heavy Money‘.
God Damn are riding the success of last release “I’m a lazer, you’re a radar”; a track that was loved here at team 7Bit and Heavy Money seems destined to follow in its footsteps.
The video, set on what seems to be a typical Wolverhampton council estate is a tale of recession, depression and dressing up as Batman with a huge dose of revenge. I’m not one to ruin the tale for you so give the video a watch now.
The video for Daniel Johnston’s already unusual track ‘Space Ducks’ contains exactly what the title suggests it would.
The man’s got three decades’ worth of musical history and artistry to his name, but Johnston’s produced this year his first ever published comic – surely destined for the big screen? – to accompany the release of the track (and a Space Ducks-themed upcoming album).
Space Ducks: An Infinite Comic Book of Musical Greatness is no doubt something many will want for the sheer novelty value, but you get the inclination that there’s a lot more to it than that.
The video for Sinkane‘s video for ‘Warm Spell’ is a wonderfully shot thing; Not Safe For Work perhaps, but certainly well worth a watch after work. The track, featured on debut album Mars, is in itself stunning, a blend of influences driven by a encapsulating beat.
Rae Morris enjoyed the enviable fast-track to fame, going from ‘track on a TV show people watch’ to ‘signing with a major label’ within a year, supporting major acts along the way.
It’s deserved: Rae is a remarkable solo talent. ‘Wait A While’ proves it. We’re talking about Ingrid Michaelson/Regina Spektor territory here…
This is K with a debut single that received the kind of backing and support bands with albums (plural) out crave. Films4Life – the charity crew that were behind a couple of Guy Ritchie’s films – came to K to offer their services, not the other way around as you may have expected.
‘Too Young To Die’ was an inaugural moment for both band and crew, as the crew got to experience music video production for the first time and the band got to release their debut single with a professional video to accompany. The end-product is excellent, in both the audio and visual departments.
This release precedes a rapid summer release of debut album Rise, and no doubt a whole bunch of shows to go along with it.
Misty Miller’s making big waves right now. The way things are going, she’ll get past the ‘support act’ phase quicker than expected. ‘Anything For You’ is one of a few new singles from the singer in recent months, and just like the others it’s worth the time of day.
Lucy Buchanan’s looking to replace Florence and The Machine; with ‘These Streets’, under the guise of The Graphite Set that may just be achievable. The commanding vocals are there, as are the crazy catchy psych-folk instrumentals.
You can judge whether or not she’s breaking new ground, but there’s more than enough here to desire going forward, especially given there’s an EP launch in June to look forward to.
