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.

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.

TEDD.GIF WHOSE MANS VIDEO

TEDD.GIF Drops “WHOSE MANS” Video

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.

Pariuh sad song video

PARI∀H – “Sad Song” (video) | Show Tuesday @ Uncle Lou’s

In their new video for “Sad Song,” Boston/Miami absurdists PARI∀H beat the shit out of multiple birthday cakes. This brutal torture involves waterboarding with Coca-Cola, stuffing the defenseless sweets into Durex condoms (the Great Value of condom brands), and a sprinkle-to-cake ratio that may make young parents form a Facebook group in protest of tooth decay. Both the video and the song are an assault on the senses. The latter combines the sound of photon laser rifles, malfunctioning synths, and overly-distorted guitars to create the perfect noise-pop song.

PARI∀H’s odd aggression will undoubtedly transfer onto the grimy concrete floor of Uncle Lou’s when they invade this Tuesday. Them–along with the equally pissed-off St Pete. trio Piss Ghost–will join ORL natives Harsh Radish and Auto Chlor for what’s certain to be a messy night of ear-damaging jamz. Bring your own cake and let loose.
