The video for Ross From Friends‘ ‘Pale Blue Dot’ captures footage from when his father decided to take his sound system on a tour of Europe after playing around London

The video was shot by the lady who would go on to become his mother in exchange for a seat on the tour bus, bringing their love of HI-NRG, Italo Disco and proto-techno to everything from spontaneous parties to whatever venue they could set up in.

Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Conner Youngblood’s ‘Los Angeles’

Conner Youngblood had this to say about the video for ‘Los Angeles’ in an e-mail; “The idea of the video came about as Johannes and I were discussing the lyrics of the song and sending pictures back and forth to each other. We both gravitated towards pictures of soviet-style architecture as well as of concept photos of refractions through crystal. There was never any treatment written for it, but once we decided on the tone, we both decided that Armenia was the perfect place to film. The story is Johannes’ interpretation of my lyrics, which deal with a fleeting, yet peaceful relationship I once had.”

The release of the video follows ‘Birds of Finland’ from his forthcoming debut Cheyenne, out on August 17 via Counter Records. Both videos were directed by Johannes Greve Muskat.

Cheyenne is the culmination of two years of extensive travelling. Youngblood describes the album as “musical ADHD”. And this is fitting since there are no less than 30 instruments including a harp, a bass clarinet, a tabla, and more, all of which he plays.

He’s heading to Europe in the fall in support of the new album;

Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Calva Louise’s ‘Outrageous’

Calva Louise have unveiled the raucous visuals for their track ‘Outrageous’.

“The video for ‘Outrageous’ shows (sort of) what it’s like to be in a band for us,” the band said in an e-mail. “As a band with no money but with a lot of willpower, we’d go on adventures in our tiny old car, going from London to Berlin to Glasgow, facing, at first, a lot of struggles but always having the maddest adventures and all kind of challenges. In the end, nothing really gets easier, but it does get funnier to experience!”

Calva Louise honed their sound as part of London’s punk scene and they’ve played gigs with Spring King and Anteros. They’ve also received praise for their live shows from BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music airplay.

Catch Calva Louise on the following dates;

28 July – Wonkfest, London
04 Aug – Humber Street Sesh Festival, Hull

Stream Jane’s Party’s ‘Acknowledgements’ for Free

Toronto’s Jane’s Party have shared a free stream of their track ‘Acknowledgements’.

The band wanted to push the boundaries of what they have done in the past and explore new aspects of their musical relationship.

The biggest change is that there are no drums on the song.

“We knew that such a fundamental decision would force us all to get out of our old habits and comfort zones – “shuffle the deck” in a way. With David Spekter’s work on the vocal harmony arrangement, ‘Acknowledgements’ ebbs and flows beautifully, with the lyrics always at the forefront,” the band said in an e-mail.

“Coming up in music as jazz students, we’ve always played and listened to instrumental music yet have somehow never made any of our own. The concept was a 60’s style approach to recording ‘Surfing on a Sinewave’ – a one-day studio session with all four of us jamming together in a single room,” the band said.  “Who better to inspire us and guide us through the process than Leland Whitty of Badbadnotgood? His production work in the studio and throughout the mixing process made for an incredible learning experience.”

Jane’s Party also offered a free stream of ‘Surfing on a Sinewave’;

Catch the band on the following dates;

July 6 – 7 @ Northern Lights Festival, Sudbury, ON

July 26 – 28 @ Beaches International Jazz Festival, Toronto, ON

August 18 @ Village Vibe Festival, Blue Mountain Resort, Collingwood, ON
August 18 @ Crowbar, Collingwood, ON

Stream Falcon Jane’s ‘The News’ for Free

Falcon Jane, aka Sara May, had this to say about her track ‘The News’ in an e-mail; “’The News’ is about losing someone you love and trying to find them amidst the dense, emotional fog of grief. I hope it can help aid those who are grieving by reflecting some of the complicated emotions we are feeling.”

She offered a free stream of the track, taken from her latest album Feelin’ Freaky, out now.

The severe flooding that affected her community Southwestern Ontario also inspired the track, particularly a young child who was washed out of his mother’s arms. May and her partner had driven through the area just a few hours before the tragedy struck. She noted that there were a lot of parallels between the child’s death and ‘The News’.

When the next flood hit, May tried to capture when she and the community had been feeling.

“Water can be powerful and destructive, beautiful and cleansing. Its constant flow reminds us to keep moving forward – yet we are at the mercy of the current, the rainfall, and the floods,” she wrote.

Catch Falcon Jane on the following dates;

June 1 – Maggiolly’s – Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival, ON

June 2 – Vibes in the Valley – Mulmur, ON

June 15 – Hillsburgh Library Opening, ON

June 26 – Monarch Tavern, Toronto, ON
