Melbourne’s Slum Sociable charm with slow-burning “Castle”

Source: All Things Go

With an immaculate flow reminiscent of 90’s R&B, Melbourne’s own Slum Social have done it again in a follow up to their work in 2015. On their latest single, “Castle”, charming snaps punctuate, accenting drums that dance along a heavy line, pulling back just enough to keep it cool. Their debut, self-titled record is set […]

Video of The Day #327 (Premiere Edition): Mandy Sloan

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

On this special day of natural celestial wonderment, it makes me so very happy to premiere this rather special video from Mandy Sloan.

“Drift” is heartbreak and hope knotted together by Sloan’s beautiful, shapeshifting vocals. Sloan, a self-taught talent, covers the conflicted emotional gamut of a post-breakup heart brilliantly, her voice emoting the deep sorrow, longing, and ultimate optimism with her impressive turns of ...

Video of The Day #326: The Cure

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

I’ve been watching the heck out of that classic MTV channel lately, which has been great for getting my much-needed nostalgia fix. Seeing the video for The Cure‘s “A Night Like This” earlier this week reminded me just how much I adore this song, and why it’s one of my favorite Cure numbers. A beautiful, melancholy, gothic love song. The video is just ...

The Week In Shows: 8/21/17-8/27/17

Another pretty humid Saturday morning in August seems as good a time as any to plot ones weekly live music schedule, I think. Let’s take a look at what’s happening in the greater DC metro this week, shall we? Hot diggity!

Have you got your hands on some eclipse glasses yet? Don’t forget to exercise caution if you plan on watching Monday’s solar eclipse. No one wants burned retinas, my friend. That makes it pretty challenging to see shows. And now, without further ado, here’s a look at some of the shows I happen to recommend for the coming week ...

Video of The Day #325: Lost Balloons

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

I’m really enjoying this one, my friends. The deceptively tranquil “Noose” from “2-man summertime pop explosion” Lost Balloons is placidly moody, full of much dreaminess and much introspection along with the late summer night sky starriness of the instrumentation. The video is a visual treat, adding some extra whimsy while capturing the essence of the song just so.
