St. Pete darlings Veiny Hands have been kicking ass for a year-and-a-half now, but they’ve really turned up the heat on this new song/video. The video, directed and edited by Michelle Primiani, features the foursome ripping through the “Mountain Goat” while their movements blur beneath a saturated filter. Enjoy.
In my heart, Fat Night will always be an Orlando band. And I can’t wait until the next time they come to town to rip a dancefloor into funky pieces. Their latest is already a live staple that kicks erry time. If you’re in Chicago, you should consider yourself lucky.
Tokyo is one the hardest hitting rappers I’ve heard in a while. He attacks this beat with constant, machine gun fire bars.
Cool new sounds from a talented DJ/producer/TMD memeber, Blair Sound Design.
The last FayRoy music video I covered was really mysterious. The visuals were esoteric, moody, and subtle. The song itself, “LIFE OR DEATH,” contained the line “It’s these lessons that we learn can be hard and not immediately clear.” For their just released single and video, the Saint Petersburg duo instead craft a story that is word-for-word translated before our eyes — eyes that are then stripped away by an evil spirit to spare our soul.
Inspired by an episode of The Twilight Zone, “Take My Eyes” tells the tale of two men as they come face-to-face with death himself. Drew, guitar/vocals for St Pete band Sonic Graffiti, begs on his hands and knees before choosing to lose his eyes over his ears. Vocalist Zack Hoag concurs in the chorus, “I’d rather live in the dark, then the thought of living without a song. So take my eyes.”
The other man, played by drummer Kyle Fournier, is kind of like a crack addict but with books. He decides to instead lose his hearing. But as deals with the devil usually go, both men end up dead as death goes on a rampage, killing the band just for kicks.
The Fay-boyz have a few ORL dates in December. Catch them Dec 17 at Sweater Fest and Dec 28 with the reunited Le Blorr, Saskatchewan, and Tiger Fawn at Will’s Pub.
A combination of glitchy VHS tapes and flashing colors, TEDD.GIF’s latest video is disorientating, fitting for the sloshed performance by the ORL MC. TEDD confidently slurs through one of the tightest hooks off Lil Mixtape, as LANLORD comes through with a slick beat. The whole joint sounds like it was filtered through some thick codeine. (When the beat stops then reverse, I’m like “oohh.”)
This video is raw. Footage of hazy, party-filled nights, no sleep, no fuckboys allowed. matthew warhol even makes a tiny appearance. S/O Retro Neon Records, TEDD.GIF, LANLORD, Jawl Nini, and Charles Wheatle for putting together another dope piece of art.
