New BAMM.tv Video: Peter Fenn, ‘I Remember’

Posted on: No Comments

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.

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

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

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.

Okay
