Joe Marson has a new EP out now called Electric Soul Magic and for a taste of his electric soul, check out the video made for its second single, called “Love You Safely”. Process without fear or caution. This New York artist is sure to tantalize anyone who listens and hopefully as his audiences expand, he will be able to see you at his gigs.
Earlier this week, I shared with you a new song from Marilyn Manson called “Deep Six”, and some of you may have thought “I just want to see the video for it.” Your wish has been granted. Directed by Bart Hess, the song is from his forthcoming album due on January 20th called The Pale Emperor (Loma Vista). The Hell Not Hallelujah Tour will begin in the nation’s capital a day later.

In October I posted a then-new video by a singer named I Am Snow Angel called “Crocodile”. The artist, who close friends call Julie Kathryn, sings, writes, performs, and produces her own music, which means her output is completely her vision. As for the video for “Come With Me” was done with help from Alexander Cherney, who shot this in Victoria and New South Wales in Australia, with partial help with a radio telescope from the Australian Telescope Compacy Array.
Kyle Rapps and Hefna Gwap merge for their European Tic Tacs projects and they’ve now made a video for one of its songs, which features Seattle’s own Aaron Cohen. The press release states “Searchin'” “borrows a slick sample of Roy Ayers’ hit of the same title, as originally featured on the ’71 release off his quinquennial LP, Ubiquity.” but in truth the sample is from the song “Searching” (not “Searchin'”) and “Searching” came from his 1976 album Vibrations, not the Ubiquity album (which came out in 1970) and I’m not sure what “quinquennial” refers to. However, hearing this “Searchin'” may make you forget the errors.
If you were around in the 80’s, you will have remembered the British sibling vocal group Five Star, known for “All Fall Down”. While they have been relatively quiet (especially in the United States), vocalist Denise Pearson is stepping out and showing why her voice is still as solid, if not better, than what it was 30 years ago. “Twisted Electric” is a track she did with Italian producer/DJ Danny Darko and the song has been turned into a video, complete with Pearson found within.
The vibe on this one goes back to the mid to late 1990’s and mixed in with a nice trumpet solo throughout, “Your Favorite” by BlaccOut Garrison is not only something that is a throwback of sorts but perhaps a song that describes the kind of hip-hop that should still exist in the mainstream today. The song was produced by BasquiatMusic.
When I read the term “experimental electronica”, I’m game and ready to hear what was done to bring up those words. LeVant is definitely an adventurist, as this could easily be a pop song or incidental music for a film, if not a theme song for one but it takes off going somewhere, making me think of other possibilities. I look forward to hearing much more from this artist.
Scotland’s Mo Evans comes from a rich heritage of musical inclined people: producer Robin Evans is his dad, singer Sam Brown is his mom, and Joe & Vicki Brown are his grandparents. Now, the 19-year old man wants to make a name for himself not only as a descendant of the Brown/Evans family, but as someone who will stand out on his own. His EP is called Spilled My Love and the video is for the title track. Get to know Mo and discover why he may become the next “it” man of pop music.
German producer JR & PH7 worked with Sacramento rapper Chuuwee towards his album called The South Sac Mack. That will be out early next year but you can see how the collaboration worked in “Meanwhile Off Mack”, which has some nice scratching in the second third. Nice cut, be sure to listen to more when it surfaces.
There was a time when many people were looking to Athens, Georgia for anything and everything that had to do with new and good music. You’ll have to look that way with Hand Sand Hands. His new album just came out on cassette and it’s called Good Luck With That. From it is something you should treat very well on your own body, so find out waht Hand Sand Hands has to say about his “Pores”. Or your pores. Or pores in general.
