The sassy LA and NYC based singer Chantal Claret yesterday released a video for her mesmerizing “Bite Your Tongue.” This girl’s music has got soul and a no brain pop appeal that crosses somewhere between Adele and Duffy. It’s not often that you hit play and within the first 30 seconds are energized enough to shake it all around like you weren’t comatose from allergies the last 24 hours. Just saying.

Video: Juliette – “The World Is Yours” (Nas Cover) + “93 ‘Til Infinity” (Souls of Mischief Remake)

UK soul singer Juliette does a fun little cover for Nas’ anthemic “The World Is Yours.” Loving this flip on a classic tune!

The track is part of an album Juliette recently released called The Take Over, Volume 1, which also includes a rad remake of “93 ‘Til Infinity” by the Souls of Mischief that you can hear below! Really digging her vocal style – kind of reminds us of Teedra Moses at points, too.

Video: Gang Colours – “To Repel Ghosts”

Last time we got down with Gang Colours, it was about fancy restaurants and the like. This time, he’s anteing up against the otherworldly on “To Repel Ghosts.”

The Basquiat inspired music video is a site all its own with some powerful little animated scribbles, with the minimalist piano-driven ambient track complementing the visuals quite perfectly. Sometimes less is definitely more – loving this.
