Video: Quantic & Alice Russell – “Magdalena”

 

Never a dull moment with Quantic and Alice Russell. Their new video for “Magdalena” would invariably light up any dim winter day with the adorable animations and dreamy landscape visuals. The scrapbook aesthetic creates an immediate nostalgia and yearning for something more.

Video: Kendrick Lamar – “Swimming Pools (Drank)” (Live on SNL)

 

Kendrick Lamar gave his much anticipated Saturday Night Live performance yesterday with a live band no less! He performed his two lead singles, “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and “Poetic Justice” with some impressive speed-rapping mixed in there to boot.

His “skit” came in the form of a spoof music video with Adam Levine entitled “YOLO,” with the a general theme of hysteria and ‘isolating yourself and living solo’ to not waste that precious life. Loving Kendrick’s see-through green visor, though!

Video: Valerie June – ‘Pushin’ Against A Stone’ Teaser

 

The ever so charming New York and Tennessee based singer/songwriter Valerie June shares with us some of the journey that’s led her up to her upcoming album, Pushin’ Against A Stone. The sound can be described as blues, folk, country, and thanks to our man Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys who is helping with songwriting and production, some good old soulful rock-n-roll, too.

Gotta love a good hearty musical stew. The album drops May 6 in the UK.
