BAMM.tv Featured Artist – Ash – ‘Shining Light’

Posted on: No Comments

We’ve got a very special Featured Artist season this time around – we’re celebrating the 20-plus year career of Britrock legends Ash, whose glorious power-pop continues to thrill fans around the world. Oh, and did we mention that we snared a TOTALLY EXCLUSIVE BAMM.TV PERFORMANCE from them? Because, y’know, we did.

There’s more to come next week: more exclusive live video, a sprawling Ash retrospective, a look at their greatest musical moments and some great musical recommendation to take you down the indie rabbit hole if you’re looking for further Ash-like sounds.

In the meantime, check out this exclusive performance of all-time classic ‘Shining Light’ …

Our weekly roundup of what’s happening with BAMM.tv’s favorite artists …

TYPHOON

This Portland-based bunch of musical crusaders have previously been our Artist Of The Month, so that pretty much tells you all you need to know (if you’re a little slow on the uptake, we’re saying that they’re incredibly good). Their new album ‘White Lighter’ was released this week.

BAMM.tv Featured Artist: Wallpaper.

Posted on: No Comments

Anyone familiar with reviewer shorthand will know the meaning of the term ‘wallpaper music’. It’s often used to describe the output of MOR giants like Coldplay or Maroon 5 – it’s background stuff, ambient dinner party noise, inoffensive and barely noticeable chatter which uses music more as a pleasant crutch than a blazing center of attention.

Sooooo … if you were a frenzied hip-hop electro-pop mastermind who drops beats like John McClane drops bad guys, you probably wouldn’t want to associate yourself with the word. You’d call yourself ‘Explosion Beast’ or ‘Annihilator’ or ‘Dance Yourself Sick’. That would be the predictable thing to do. The thing is: Ricky Reed – the producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist behind Wallpaper., our brand new Featured Artist – is anything but predictable.

Interested yet? Want to read on as we get all Home Depot on your ass and really start examining Wallpaper.? Or are you just a big old Doo-Doo Face?

(Note: Doo-Doo Face is the title of his first album. It’s just a joke. We’re not really calling you a Doo-Doo Face. Unless you’re a sadomasochist and are into that kind of thing. This is the internet, after all).

Anyway. Let’s continue (after the jump …)

Typhoon: Win Exclusive Signed Lyrics And More!

Posted on: No Comments

Well, it’s been a blast, but all good things must come to an end – so we’re sad to say that Typhoon’s residence as our Featured Artist is winding down. If you haven’t checked out all the great Typhoon stuff we’ve featured so far – interviews and playlists – then you really oughta get on that. Just sayin’.

Anyway, we couldn’t finish things with a whimper (anyone familiar with the band will attest that ‘whimpering’ really isn’t their style). So about this: we’re offering one lucky winner the chance to win an LP/CD (your choice) of Typhoon’s awesome new album ‘White Lighter’, as well as a poster, some stickers, a T-shirt …

… oh, and an illustrated sheet of lyrics penned by frontman Kyle Morton with images by Toby Tanabe. One-of-a-kind-prize much?

All you have to do is send an email – subject heading ‘Typhoon Contest’ – to info [a] bamm.tv before Friday 2nd August. We’ll pick a random winner and get in touch. Good luck!
