Video: Dag Savage (Johaz & Exile) – “Cali Dreamin’” ft. Fashawn, Co$$, & Tiombe Lockhart

 

Johaz and Exile have teamed up to create a new duo called Dag Savage. Above is the video for their dreamy single “Cali Dreamin’” featuring Fashawn, Co$$, and Tiombe Lockhart. Loving smooth flow and there’s nothing like a Tiombe hook, man – other worldly. And it’s all further accented by the awesome nostalgic vibes to this video with the LA street vignettes, old photos, and vibrating, flickering flashes of shadows and glows.

New Track: Gary Clark Jr. – “Numb”

 

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/-7iIaW-qEHQ" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

This guy is so damn cool. First time we saw him was at SXSW 2012 when he buzzed about with his eleventy-billion showcases, murderating stage after stage. Hailed by the press as the second coming of Jimi Hendrix after wowing crowds for the last couple years going hard on the festival circuit, Gary Clark Jr. is that dude.

The newest single from his upcoming album, Blak and Blu, comes in the form of a distorted, gritty wonderland called “Numb” and carries a vocal style reminding us a bit of Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys fame. No going wrong with that, either.

The first single, “Ain’t Messin ‘Round,” was released in September and has a crispier, poppier, high energy vibe. The man boasts variety – go ‘head, boo.

Look for Blak and Blu on October 22, and in the meantime take a peek at Gary’s fashion spread in the August/September issue of Vibe, which happens to be shot by our editor, Seher Sikandar. Pretty rad!

An introspective Jack Davey and her guitar let us into Jack’s bedroom with the latest video from her L0-F! (Side A) project. “Eye Can See” tells the story of a reflecting on a life path and recognizing the close of a chapter through hazy, jittery black and white images. Though a simple and short track, the way she sings always seems to hit somewhere deep.
