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.

The Flashbulb: His Favorites From The BAMM.tv Vault

Posted on: 4 Comments

We asked our Featured Artist The Flashbulb to pick his favorite moments from the sprawling BAMM.tv music archive …

“I think I’ve actually gone through every BAMM video for this process. It made for a splendid Sunday morning. I kind of feel like an A&R guy, but my coffee isn’t expensive enough.

“After watching Who Cares – Show Me Some Change (below), I was reminded of how deceiving looks can be. I expected the sound of “Mouse Rat”, for those of you familiar with Parks And Recreation. The actual sound was an unexpected blend of 70′s Harlem, some open mic’d drums, and a filthy loop that sounds like the groan a baby didgeridoo would make while bashing out police car windows. The point is, this is unique, and it is great. The other point is, I need to grow my hair out and stop wearing tracksuits before I make another video.

Bamm.tv Featured Artist: The Flashbulb

Posted on: 3 Comments

Meet electronic mastermind Benn Jordan. He’s a man of many different names, collecting pseudonyms the way a hyperactive 90s kid collected Pokemon. You may also have heard him referred to as (deeeeeep breath now) Acidwolf, CHR15TPUNCH3R, DJ ASCII, Dr. Lefty, Dysrythmia, FlexE, Human Action Network, Lucid32, rapemachine, rnd16, 66x or Q-Bit.

For the purposes of our Featured Artist celebration, however, we fixing our beady eye on Benn’s most well-known alterego: The Flashbulb.

Benn is particularly direct when it comes to the origins of Flashbulb. “In the mid-70′s,” he recounts, “Lee Jordan and Denise Richardson met while vacationing in Virginia. Many sexual instances later Denise noticed she was more nauseated than usual. 9 months later the band was formed, but did not record music for another 14 years.” In other words: it’s just him. Flashbulb is a one-man operation, and Benn is the brains and talent behind it.
