BAMM.tv Presents: Peter Fenn – "I Remember" from BAMM.tv on Vimeo.

At the end of the day, one of the most important elements to a song is simply whether or not a songwriter really means what he or she says. There’s no doubt Penn Fenn believes every word he sings in this contemplative – and BAMM.tv exclusive – performance of ‘I Remember’. The silence between the vocals and guitar strokes only serves to reinforce the warmth of the song.

In keeping with the bird of prey they’re named after, Oakland’s We Became Owls are really beginning to turn some heads with their heartfelt brand of alt-country Americana. In this exclusive performance of ‘Please Surrender’, Ross Warner (mandolin and backing vocals) provides all the support this sincere, beautifully sad song requires.

“Eat Your Young” comes from Sorne’s House of Stone saga. The concept piece – it’s much more than an album and includes writings, art installations, visual art, performance art, and more – is told from the perspective of the five main characters. Eat Your Young is told from the perspective of the First Born Son. For more, check out www.sorne.com to see just how immersive this project is see the multi-talented Morgan Sorne in action.

1. The Future Sound Of London – Environment Five

When I was a teenager, I was probably listening to FSOL more often than not, so maybe I’m biased here. Environment Five is the apex of what these 2 musicians are capable of. Everything is gentle and unpredictable, no beat “drops”, no melody reaches a climax, no idea is illegal, and sounds that would seem cheesy everywhere else are welcomed on this canvas. Dazed And Confused era guitars dance with wind chimes while relaxing waterfalls give way to something ominous and terrifying in the distance. Nothing short of brilliant.

New BAMM.tv video: Blackbird Blackbird, ‘Tangerine Sky’

Posted on: No Comments

Blackbird Blackbird’s new album Tangerine Sky contains some of most elegant material we’ve heard yet from the burgeoning SF songwriter/producer. Full of surprises, Tangerine Sky takes a creative approach to meshing a wide array of contemporary styles into something unique that can only exist in the now. This is futuristic electronic-pop that doesn’t look back for inspiration, instead tying together elements of forward thinking hip-hop/R&B, space-age folk, and the meditative grooves of house and techno.

Check out the official video for Tangerine Sky’s title track above – an exclusive BAMM.tv production! Oh, and if you want to find out more about this great act, it’s all here
