RV Captures Old Nostalgia in “So Easy” Video (premiere)

RV is the perfect package. They’ve got a hot sound that you know but doesn’t overtly bite from the bands of the now. And along with a genuinely entertaining live show, they look tyght as hell doing it. When you see the four of them up on stage banging out jangly rock tunes, you can’t help but want to be a part of their vibe — and I’m not sayin’ this because we all consistently complement each other on how we dress. To put it bluntly, their one of Orlando’s best young bands with grander potential than just about anyone.

In their debut music videothe band perfectly captures what I believe is their aura, nostalgia for a day at the beach that happened before you were born. Does that make sense? See, when I listen to RV, I feel like I’m in the grainy pieced-together world that is this new video. The songs aren’t inherently sad, but something about the way Justin’s voice lulls over the sparkling guitars gives me a sense of longing, but one that doesn’t entirely feel my own. It’s like I’m in the early-’60s, a time when our country still had its blinded innocence — as can be seen by the very alive JFK in the video. Overall, “So Easy” is a great commercial for their forthcoming album Anywhere, out this spring.

Transcendental Telecom Orlando Music Midnite J Premiere

Transcendental Telecom Dive Into R&B On “Midnite J” (premiere)

Growth fosters new ideas, and that’s a good thing. In music, change can add dimension to how you look at a band as artists. Transcendental Telecom is not a band that’s afraid to go outside their box. Released last year, their debut album showcased that in its varied, crunchy and shoegaze-inspired, guitars mixed with Spencer Tricker’s airy voice. Etherise made them stand out from other indie rock bands, and “Midnite J” does the same but in a whole new way.

One part Blood Orange, one part Tame Impala, the latest single takes advantage of synth in a way they’ve never come close to before. Spencer crafts a synth line that flashes over the whole song like a disco ball over speckled teens at an 80s prom. He encourages them to dance too, “All the people on the left, all the people on the right, come on.” The guitars are much more subtle, adding minute details in the distance. You can definitely tell Transcendental is the same band, though. Their sounds hold the same fluidity but in a much more sultry way. “Midnite J” is their version of a slow jam.

Transcendental Telecom’s plan is to release a few more singles and then have them all included on an album this year.

Thrift House – “Wake Up Little Suzie” (video premiere)

Thrift House is a band that pretty much anyone can enjoy. I’ve seen them just as comfortable in a room full of house-loving Body Talkers as they are at the classic blues rock room, Tanqueray’s. In my opinion, it’s the group’s young energy, — brought to music that your dad (maybe even your grandfather) would love — that gives them such a wide reach.

Case in point, the group’s cover of The Everly Brothers’ classic “Wake Up Little Susie.” Originally recorded in 1958, Thrift House modernizes the song by adding garage-style distortion a la The Black Keys. The vocals of Ian Cummings, Joseph Davoli, Robert John, and Kandace Marlon fuse into a smooth groove that pushes the huge chorus forward. To be honest, I thought Thrift House wrote this song; I’ve heard their demo and their originals stand up well. Let’s hope they see light soon. Peak their video below and check out some behind the scenes photos from that shoot. Enjoy.

Fat Night – “Honest Man”

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.
