To Kill a King has been one of my favorite new bands of 2012. Their music is unique, beautiful and diverse folk-rock. And we were first introduced to them through the Ralph’s Balcony Session, “Choices.” But recently, the entire Ralph’s Balcony Sessions were released on bandcamp. This is a truly amazing collection of music and artist. There are 19 songs, each featuring another artist playing along with the band. Not only is this a great way to hear a bunch of new and fantastic bands, but it is great to watch and listen to how these musicians interact. Different personalities and styles make each song different from the next. Above is one of my favorites from the session called “We Used to Protest.” It features the whimsical Emily Wood, who soft-spoken voice fits perfectly with this stripped down To Kill a King Song. Check it out above and download the whole album on bandcamp, it’s well worth it.
I know, I know. Everyone is sick of all the sad agnsty songs out there and the videos to match. But this one really stuck with me. This music video was made as part of a Music Video Race and was completed within 48 hours, though it may not look it. The video is simple but powerful and the song reminds me a bit of Elliott Smith (and perhaps and Alphaville homage in the chorus?). Check it out above and be sure to look at some of WATERS other videos here; they’ve got some good ones. Also, check out their debut which is currently in stores.
We’ve got some new goodies from Bravestation, this time in the form of their first music video. This fan-funded endeavor features the band playing and participating in a party of well dressed men and women, popping pills and drinking colorful drinks in a ritualistic quest for youth and tribal togetherness. It’s incredibly well done and you can check it out above.
