Video Premiere: Spa Moans “Throat”

We are proud to premiere the haunting new video from Spa Moans for her single “Throat”. The track is taken from the forthcoming mixtape “Obedient Vibrations” which is due out on November 17th via Portland’s Drop Medium.

We were able to ask the label about the making of the “Throat” video which was directed by Andrew Gibson.

"We just wanted Jenny to look very unique and not surrounded by anything or anyone. We had the water be a large part of the imagery due to the songs atmosphere and vague rhythmic structure. We did the smokey chain shots in a closet. We had to buy a lot of old, shitty televisions and just turned them on to static to add some weird lightning effects. I think at the time we were just sort of thinking of spooky sci-fi horror movies and the imagery/ lighting associated with those - movies like The Thing, Videodrome, Crash etc. We definitely wanted it to be hypnotizing and haunting but in a way that supported the song.”

Lucille Furs @ Beat Kitchen

Psychedelic group Lucille Furs recently released their self-titled debut album. It is available here digitally, but clearly feels like it was meant to be played on vinyl. I would not be surprised if it came that this band were actually mystical time travelers. They don’t just pay tribute to Psych bands of the past but fully embrace the sound and esthetic. However, these songs are not gimmicks, they have an artistic core that can not be overlooked.

You can catch Lucille Furs at Beat Kitchen on November 1st with Frankie and The Witch Fingers and Flash Flash Comfort.





Video Premiere: Mike Mentz “Someday"

Chicagoan Mike Mentz is on a mission to personally share his music with the world. He is constantly touring and currently has dates lined up in India, Guatemala, Peru and Puerto Rico.

He recently returned home to create a video for his song “Someday”. It is a creative timelapse video, and utilizes our city as a backdrop. We recently got a chance to asked Mike about the video: "We shot the video for Someday almost entirely in timelapse. I wanted the world to literally fly by this guy while he stared at a screen. My sweet home Chicago provided some super vibrant timelapse backdrops. A River North apartment in the sky, walking the Theatre District, Viagra Triangle from above, and Lake Shore Drive all made for wildly cool cinematic playgrounds."

You can catch Mike at Uncommon Ground (Edgewater) on December 16th.
