Fugdale’s second official music video, “Millicent and Madison” has finally been released on Youtube and Vimeo. “Millicent and Madison” is the story of two awkward and ugly teenagers whose very existence gets them teased and bullied. They are excluded from social circles and never granted invitations to all the wild parties thrown by the stuck-up kids in school. If you’ve ever been bullied, you might identify with Millie and Madie. But, this video takes things to the extreme by presenting these two below-average individuals through the eyes of the bully himself. Read more
ArtiGussy is a one-man instrumentalist, vocalist, and songwriter from Lyon, France. His music recalls John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Boy Least Likely and many other great artists. Lyrically clever, and rich with variety, each song plays harmonically on the ear. ArtiG. knows how to strum a uke and tinkle the ivories as well. He infuses gobs of rich instrumentation from a variety of sources to make each song unique. Check out some of his selections from SoundCloud. I’m particularly fond of “Simply Stare” and “Bitter Sweets”.
Discovered RDTR Productions on Cloudkillers and was blown away at how much fun the music was. Most of it is labeled Hip-Hop on Soundcloud, but this is unlike any hip-hop I’ve ever heard. Take a listen to these two tracks to discover for yourself.
Seattle artist Jon Joslin’s music feels moody, solemn, fleshy and poignant. He seriously needs more SoundCloud followers. This awesome stuff is just waiting for an audience.
Italian instrumental band, Calibro 35, has a 70′s jazzy detective style and groove. This video, directed by Francesco Brunotti fits their musical style perfectly. Using retro, paper cutout graphic animations mixed with noir film sequences, it really fills your mind with cop-film madness.
Funk/soul musician Carson Henley heats up downtown Seattle in this video for “Fire”. It’s full of gymnastic flips and Parkour stunts as he and his friends bounce around the city on the tail of an elusive girl. Anyone from Seattle should get a kick out of seeing these folks jumping from site to site. And Carson’s music has a funky groove which perfectly fits his soulful bluesy voice.
This guy, Lapis Lazu, is very original, comedic, quirky, odd. A little Tiny Tim, a little Laurie Anderson, a little Weird Al. His music is bouncy, odd, disturbing and unique. I love it!
One of the tracks shown above is about peppermint and the other is about spitting a dental filling into a drink and then visiting Sue at the hospital. Talk about original lyrics.
This piece is very moody and haunting. Close your eyes and enjoy it’s cinematic movements. Check out Matt Le Mare’s other pieces on SoundCloud.
An instrumental ditty full of piano, guitar, drums, digital riffs, chicken squawks, and telephone operators. Quirky, light, electronic fun.
“I hate a song that makes you think you’re not any good”. This isn’t one of those songs. Fun little reggae number from Dreadzone.
