‘In The Meantime’ by King

‘In The Meantime’ by King

This L.A.-based trio, who were once mentored by Prince, have a brand new video for this track from their 2016 debut LP We Are KING. Twins Paris and Amber Strother and their friend Anita Bias actually started work on this album about 3 years ago, which was when ‘In The Meantime’ was first released. At the time no less a figure than Prince was championing them, who like an increasing amount of people had cottoned on to them after they started putting their self-written and produced tracks up on Soundcloud. The video, directed by David Devaux, is a clever animation Read more »

‘History Repeating’ by Propellerheads and Shirley Bassey

‘History Repeating’ by Propellerheads and Shirley Bassey

One of the most memorable songs of the 90’s, this brilliant video and song now seem to be more relevant than ever.   “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana Its no secret that since the dark ages the theory of social cycles is taken seriously by many academics around the world.

Fabricated by music journalists as a lazy way of turning a bunch of dissparate acts in to a ‘movement’ it has since become the distorted lens through which many see the rise of indie music in the 90’s, with Oasis and Blur out front, and at most about a dozen other bands behind them.

‘Fire’ by Justice

‘Fire’ by Justice

  I don’t know what makes me happier: that Justice is back or that the video features goddess, Susan Sarandon!   Justice ( Jus†ice) is a French electronic music duo formed by Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay . My God, I am really having a love affair with french electronic music, it´s nothing new, but it is growing by the second. I am still not over D.A.N.C.E. and they have now released a new album which includes this  gorgeous, classic french sound, and a video that makes us remember Thelma and Louise and shows as a gorgeous Sarandon still swinging…both the band and her will Read more »
