Video: Johnny Popcorn – “Power”

Awww yeah. Now this is some catchy ish. Hezekiah Davis and Tone Whitfield are Johnny Popcorn, a Philly based rock, soul, and hip-hop outfit. “Power” is a snappy lo-fi garage vibe track which kind of feels like it could be a less dark and dense Hanni El Khatib tune.

The video features a slew of running babes stripping to their hearts’ content amidst good ol’ nature. “Power” is a track off the duo’s March 2012 album, The Crow, which you can stream in full below.

Rambunctious Bay Area soul and funk band The Park join indie-country/roots artist Lee Bob Watson together form Happy Mayfield. Along with the ever dynamic Darondo, this bunch have recently released Silvercloud Time Machine, a project that honors two generations of Bay Area funk.

The first single, “Jesse James” is accompanied by a vintage style video with a thrilling chase scene straight out of the 70s. Turns out the video happens to only be the first part of a longer narrative of “crime, mystery, and romance.”

New Release: Nicholas Ryan Gant – ‘Promises’

 

Nicholas Ryan Gant has been one of our favorite modern soul vocalists for a minute now – there is just something about the vibration of his voice that is unlike anyone else. So it’s no surprise when we say that we are completely and utterly beside ourselves now that he’s released his first solo album! Promises dropped today and is fourteen tracks of yummy mellow soul snacks.

“Over Us/Convo” definitely stands out as our favorite track and the Fresh Daily feature on the title track is rather tickling as well.

New Tracks: Kissey – “House” + “All Night” (Demo) & NYC Show – May 24

 

Swedish vocalist/producer Kissey keeps teasing us with these little leaks! The sassy and elegant young lass recently dropped a couple new gems on us and they’ve automatically been plugged into rotation.

“House” is a quirky 80′s/90′s style electro dance jam that’ll have you chanting the chorus in about two seconds flat.

The “All Night” demo is a dark, chilling ballad with sparse, haunting keys. This lady never fails to show us her marvelous range.

This Thursday, Kissey will be performing her first NYC show in three years and we can’t quite explain how giddy we are. Let’s just say she’s got some tricks up her sleeve that you’re not going to want to miss.
