New BAMM.tv Video: Simone Stolzoff feat. Peter Fenn – “A Window”

Posted on: No Comments

“There were days you smiled big enough for me to feel like I was the only one who knew how many teeth you had, and nights you smiled just enough to make me feel like I embarrassed you.” There are many reasons why you should watch this spoken word performance, but here at BAMM.tv we don’t know of any more compelling than the line quoted above.

New BAMM.tv Videos: ‘Keychains’ and ‘Yosemite’, Phil Lang

Posted on: No Comments

BAMM.tv’s very own Phil Lang steps in front of the camera for this double-bill of musical magic from an accomplished singer-songwriter.

First up, there’s ‘Keychains’. Shot on the rooftop of BAMM.tv’s San Francisco office, this tune locks in on one of those required moments of a relationship that’s coming to an end – the returning of apartment keys.

In ‘Yosemite’, Lang sings “Now I know who I was, now I know who I’m not”, a touching sentiment in this country-tinged tune about being caught between two chapters of life. In other words, a song about coming to terms with getting older.

New BAMM.tv Video – Kendra McKinley, ‘Chestnut Street’

Posted on: No Comments

We’re seeing more and more looping pedals in pop and indie music these days, but Kendra McKinley’s vocal looping on this Jazz piece is delectable. Having a voice like hers – powerful and smooth – sure helps. You’ll be happy to get this melody stuck in your head.

BAMM.TV FEATURED ARTIST – ASH – THEIR TEN GREATEST MOMENTS

We hope you’re enjoying our season of content from our Featured Artist Ash – a celebration of the Nothern Irish rock legends to tie in with the release of some exclusive BAMM.tv performances from the band. We’ve already seen a blistering BAMM.tv rendition of ‘Shining Light’ (keep ‘em peeled for another exclusive live track later this week) and a glowing look back at their classic and contemporary albums.

Now? Now let’s fire up the BAMM.tv office stereo. We’ve handpicked our top ten favorite Ash tunes. Whether you’re a) using this as a long-overdue introduction to the band, b) just reliving some great tunes, or c) can’t believe our choices and want to murder us, we hope you enjoy …

10. SOMETIMES

One of Ash’s most overlooked aspects – as well as rocking out, they also know their way around a pop ballad or two. Sun-kissed and splendid, ‘Sometimes’ is a prime example of this.

Can a fan base be considered gang?

Posted on: No Comments

Update: As of July 10, 2014, the U.S. District Court of Eastern Michigan ruled against ICP. The group will appeal. 

We’re looking today at Juggalos (not gigolos, they’re something entirely different). Juggalo is generally a name given to fans of the ‘horrorcore’ group Insane Clown Posse – they wear clown make-up, love violent and murder-based imagery, and have a very strong bond with each other.

It turns out, though, that the FBI think that Juggalos are more than just a musical fan base. They have listed Juggalos as an ‘organised crime gang’ – and the Insane Clown Posse are NOT HAPPY about having their fan base slandered like this. In fact, they’re suing the FBI and the Department Of Justice demanding that Juggalos are removed from the list.

BAMM.TV FEATURED ARTIST – ASH – A LOOK BACK

Posted on: No Comments

ashband

We’re massively excited to feature Ash as our Featured Artist this week, in order to tie in with the release of a couple of exclusive BAMM.tv performances from this three-piece Brit-rock legend. The first one – ‘Shining Light’ – was unleashed last week, and there’s a second one all ready for you to watch later this week. Excited? Course you are.

In the meantime, however, we thought we’d take a few days to celebrate all things Ash … beginning with a look at their discography to date. Let’s join hands and relax in a blue shimmery light as we Quantum Leap back through musical history …

TRAILER (1994)

For those of us who have been following Ash’s musical trajectory since the beginning, here’s a chilling little reminder of your own mortality: ‘Trailer’, the debut album from a bunch of young Northern Ireland upstarts barely past the point of their school exams, is now a whopping twenty years old. Time flies when you’re having fun. Or even when you’re not.

Luckily, all that’s needed to nullify such morbid musings of mortality (check out our alliteration skills) is to take another listen to ‘Trailer’, and to be blown away by the sheer energy and verve of the band’s first long-player. It’s not as polished as later work, obviously, and the songwriting is a mere foreshadow of what’s to come – but, just as a teenage Metallica arrived fully-formed with 1983’s ‘Kill ‘Em All,’ we can safely say that ‘Trailer’ is the confident, bellowed announcement of a great new talent.
