Posted on: No Comments

We’re almost insanely proud to feature San Francisco rockers The Soft White Sixties as our Featured Artist. If you haven’t checked out our essential introduction to the band, you can do that right here. Seriously. We can wait. Go on.

Back already? Great. Hopefully that’s put you in the mood for the acres of exclusive stuff and The Soft White Sixties have got coming your way in the next week or two … including today! ‘Knock It Loose’ is a real gem from the archives – shot in December 2011, it’s a fascinating feature-length documentary which follows the boys (then a five-piece) on their first ever West Coast tour. We’d compiled all the episodes below into one amazing playlist, for your viewing pleasure. Yeah, we know, we’re too good to you sometimes.

Expect rock and roll, burritos, beer, fireworks and all sorts of general mischief. Enjoy!

Time for another Featured Artist: a selection of great music, exclusive articles and prize giveaways (among other things) from one of our favorite up-and-coming artists. This month we put San Francisco singer-songwriter Diana Gameros under the spotlight …

Soulfulness is a hard thing to quantify. People are a varied breed, and experience tells us it would be foolish to go all-out and categorise emotional response – music that leaves one listener cold may well prove to save the life of another. Music may be universal but the gamut of reactions works on a far more personal level – an innate form of relativism that both unites and separates us all.

Sometimes, though … sometimes you just have to appreciate the resonance of an artist. Opera may not do it for you, but you can’t help but quiver at the bombastic authority of a tenor or soprano. Heavy rock could well be the last thing you’d listen to, but you’ve have to be a cultural zero-mark not to marvel at a virtuoso guitar solo. As for emotive, Latin-tinged, classical acoustic songwriting? That might be outside your sphere altogether, but – frankly – if you’re not massively moved by the heart-stopping performances of Diana Gameros, then you might as well nail that coffin lid down now.

Luckily – here at BAMM.TV – we are big fans of emotive, Latin-tinged, classical acoustic songwriting. And we’re even bigger fans of the heart-stopping performances of Diana Gameros.

Stick around, and you might just find out why.

We’ve been throwing all sorts of great music your way with our ‘Global Scene Live: Amsterdam’ season, and we have even more exciting dispatches from Amsterdam’s legendary Desmet Studios waiting in the wings. In the meantime, though (and sticking around the Netherlands) we have something very, very special indeed.

Jungle By Night are one of the most exciting up-and-coming bands in the world right now. Infact, we were so impressed with this Amsterdam-based Afrobeat collective that we followed them during the build-up to the release of their superb new album ‘Hidden.’ The result? The above documentary, which ranks as one of the most ambitious things has ever done. You’re going to love it.

Aaaaaand one more thing – if you’re an Amsterdam native (or just happen to be in the city on Saturday November 24) then head to the Melkweg cinema for a big-screen viewing of the documentary! Flyer below, more info here
