Posted on: No Comments

We asked some of the great acts who have performed for to pick their favorite albums from the year gone by. Today it’s the turn of Benn Jordan (aka The Flashbulb) and Vandella …

THE FLASHBULB Presents: The Flashbulb – “Virtuous Cassette” (live at SXSW) from on Vimeo.

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 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 production! Oh, and if you want to find out more about this great act, it’s all here

“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 we don’t know of any more compelling than the line quoted above.

New Videos: ‘Keychains’ and ‘Yosemite’, Phil Lang

Posted on: No Comments’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’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.
