In "Bicycle Sounds," a short video from photographer Stephen Meierding (who shot the Biolite Stove!), we watch and listen to an......read more

Fabulous Brown's brooding, Giorigio Moroder-inspired synth track "Alpenglow" has been outfitted with a new video by Greg Bunbury of Bunbury Creative. Made using public domain footage, the clip tells a loose narrative that covers the span of a day, from morning light on downtown streets to sunset over a mountain range.

Gang Colours, "Fancy Restaurant"

watch
Wistful electric soul track laced with vintage visuals made from a mix of original and found Super 8 footage

"Fancy Restaurant," the lead single off of Gang Colours' debut LP, Keychains, is a warm and wistful bit of electric soul, carried by a R&B piano line with some plodding support from a synth bass. The delicate sound runs in sharp contrast to the musical nom de plume of UK producer Will Ozanne. For the video, director Samuel Craven ditched the crispy high-def look in favour of a throwback Super......read more
