Video of the Moment #1634: Paula and Karol

By on Sunday, 21st September 2014 at 10:00 am

As their name suggests, the Polish act Paula and Karol began life as a folk / pop duo, though when I first saw them play at SXSW 2012 and then a couple months later at their own headline show at East London’s 93 Feet East, they already had a band with them, helping to make their happy, peppy, positive sound that much larger.

Now the family has grown in size again, and they’ve just released their third album ‘Heartwash’ in Germany and Poland last week. Listen to and watch the video for the title track and also second single from the LP below.

Video of the Moment #1633: Wolf Gang

By on Saturday, 20th September 2014 at 10:00 am

This part action, part performance video for Wolf Gang‘s ‘Lay Your Love Down’, their newest single, is as epic as the sound of the song itself. As someone who is always pining for London, the scenery of both the city and of its prettier, flowery parts is most definitely welcome. The single is also a great taster for the band’s upcoming album ‘Alveron’, which is expected out before the end of 2014. Watch the video below.

I just caught Wolf Gang live here in DC last week co-headlining with LA’s Sir Sly; you can read about that gig experience here.

Video of the Moment #1631: The Last Bison

By on Thursday, 18th September 2014 at 6:00 pm

Carrie included a review of single ‘Bad Country’ in her Bands to Watch feature on The Last Bison last week. The single now has a promo video, filmed on location at the atmospherically rich Triple R Ranch in their hometown of Chesapeake, Virginia. You really haven’t lived until you’ve watched a band perform on a farm while horses run by, am I right? Ha. Watch the video below.

Track by Track: Young Kato – Sunshine EP

By on Thursday, 18th September 2014 at 11:00 am

Just because he’s such a nice chap, it wasn’t enough that Tommy Wright of Young Kato filled me in earlier in the week on what their band had been up to all summer. No, he was also kind enough to give us this play by play, track by track personal analysis of their brand new ‘Sunshine’ EP, out this week on BMG. Take it away, Tommy…

‘Sunshine': Sun kissed, all singing, all dancing single. Wrote this in Sam’s (Henderson, drummer) garden on a beautiful afternoon in June. Feel it really shows everything bright and colourful about this band. Lyrically we tried to capture a holiday atmosphere, an escape to somethin sunnier. “You unravel in the sun.”

‘Ultraviolet': Hugely ’80s pop inspired tune, written over a couple of days in (Joe) Green’s (rhythm guitarist) house. Lyrically, it’s a lust for someone and a want to know if you’re still remembered. “Could you pick me out of a crowd, do you remember me at all?”

‘Light It Up': ‘Light It Up’ is just a ballsy mash-up of a variety of influences spanning from EMF, Duran Duran and many, many more. Lyrically, it can be taken in a few different ways, as three of us pitched in with the content. For me, it’s about being bold and brave in the face of defeat. “When you wish the clouds would part, and reveal a blue like ocean, the pressure tends to start, and the heavens they will open…”

Thanks Tommy!


Video of the Moment #1630: Sinkane

By on Wednesday, 17th September 2014 at 6:00 pm

Ahmed Gallab, who goes by the stage name Sinkane, has been receiving plaudits from all over for his current album ‘Mean Love’, out now on DFA Records. The ultra cool, ultra funky ‘How We Be’ now has a promo video and like Glass Animals‘ ‘Hazey’ 2 weeks ago, features the amazing talents of local dancers. Except instead of bone breakers, more conventional but a no less impressive, dazzling display of step, ballet and breakdancing heroes showing off the varied neighbourhoods in the Big Apple. Watch the video below.

Sinkane’s next live appearance in the UK is on the 1st of December at London Oslo in Hackney.
