Introducing Beautiful Beasts

Beautiful Beasts describe themselves as stuck in a puddle of influences somewhere between Fleetwood Mac and Faith No More. Their goal is and has been to create and capture feelings in song that are appropriate to the emotional message of the moment. Sharing with you their feelings of kindness and love alongside the deepest darkest reflections of self. Pop music is how they do it best, they use it to serve the moments cause without apology in a true reflection of who and what they are.

It’s this kind of attitude and transparency that has allowed Beautiful Beasts to expand beyond their roots in Melbourne and Victoria, Australia, and leap into the global fray of talent. But for all the acknowledgements of their diverse influences and approaches, Beautiful Beasts really delivers a remarkably cohesive sound. Frontman Andrew Pope pulls no punches in his passionate delivery, and the band behind him consisting of bassist Matisse Burton, drummer Tyler Campbell, keyboardist Jordan David, and guitarist Andrew Dobrowokski, are never short on ideas on how to take every song and create an infectious and accessible song that hits all the right notes.

The video for “Right” captures the beautiful side of these beasts. A melancholic mix of acoustic guitar, pianos, upright bass, shimmering electric and the unmistakable combination of male and female vocals provides the soundtrack.

PREMIERE: PIXIES “Ring The Bell” via

Capture pixies 2

When Lital Mizel and Adi Frimmerman filmed a sleepover in Mizel’s bedroom back in 2005, lip-syncing and dancing to the Pixies’ song “Hey” as a birthday present for Frimmerman’s boyfriend, the two had no idea the clip would go viral to the tune of 34-million YouTube views (as of 9/2014) or catapult the two promising filmmakers to internet cult status. Nor, when the two attended the Pixies’ show in Israel this past June and went backstage afterwards to meet them, did they ever dream a half-joke of offering their services to make another video clip for the band would be met with a green light. But both incidents happened. Conceived and directed by Mizel and Frimmerman, the brand new music video for “Ring The Bell,” from Indie Cindy, Pixies’ first new album in more than 20 years, is available today and can be seen here. The clip follows two girls (Mizel and Frimmerman) traveling with a supermarket cart, collecting discarded items from the streets. With this “junk,” they arrive at their sanctuary in the woods where their “Generation-Y” friends gather to celebrate a kinder, happier, but faded-away world of PacMan, boomboxes, plastic charm bracelets, VHS tapes and cassettes, Care Bears, record players, roller skates, cornrows, mirror balls, round sunglasses and bubble blowers, now replaced by a 24/7, plugged-in mentality. Explained Mizel, “The way we see it, the song is about that moment of ending, where you look back and long for those moments in a time and place that will soon fade away.”

Today was the exciting premiere of the Pixies new music video “Ring The Bell” via Check it out here!

Introducing Robyn McCorquodale

Music Video
Robyn McCorquodale’s musical journey began with a 60 day adventure singing in Southeast Asia for a notorious playboy Prince and his Harem. This is one of the many engaging stories that Robyn loves to share with her audience. In a world fueled by power and excessive material wealth, her lasting memory of time spent in notably one of the richest places in the world, is the vivid and haunting impression of the many sad eyes she left behind, including her own. This life altering experience defined the direction of Robyn’s music career: to write and share meaningful songs that would uplift, inspire and empower.

Her newest release, Sleeps With Angels, is a powerful mix of influences of jazz, pop, blues and country that are all filtered through her formal training as a classical musician. The result is a contemporary pop style that exudes Robyn’s uplifting personality and giant heart. Sleeps With Angels is a collection of 12 songs that celebrates the mystery and joy of life, always championing to follow your dreams and to believe in love. Great American Song Contest says it best about Robyn’s vocal and writing skill: “perceptive and thought provoking … excellent both lyrically and musically … a great talent for songwriting … a great voice!”

With such a worldly attitude and and seasoned pedigree, it’s no surprise that both of her new videos portray such a strong sense of outer love and inner peace. In the “Ready To Love” video, we tag along through all of the butterfly-in-your-stomach emotions as Robyn is on the receiving end of a loving long-distance romance. This uplifting clip is a testament to being ready to find love again and that despite what may have happened in the past that we can all find love. Sometimes he even shows up on your doorstep in Vancouver!

In the video for “I Still Got The Dream” Robyn shows a more intimate and contemplative side. She looks absolutely fabulous as she strolls through the serene coastal landscape, always taking the time to stop and smell the flowers (literally and figuratively). Another striking visual is her painting a banner that states “BREAK THROUGH THE WALL.” This is not only a message to herself, but to all of us. This empowering clip is a stark reminder that all have it in ourselves to follow our dreams and always live for your own happiness.

Sarah Jaffe Lights Up Chicago

Music Video Promotion
Kirtland Records MVP Sarah Jaffe has been on tour in support of her acclaimed new album, Don’t Disconnect, and she’s been making fans by the hundreds. Check out this awesome review of her show recent at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, Illinois with Astronautalis via She’s on her way toward becoming a household name. Just watch.

“Jaffe commands the stage in the same sexy and magical way Astronautalis does. She doesn’t hold back, and throws her entire self and emotion into her performance. Jaffee played many songs from her new album, Don’t Disconnect out of Kirtland Records. The set was full of everything from sexy synth to Jaffe taking center stage to sing “Don’t Disconnect” acapella. This was stunning, simply beautiful. It was such a lovely takeaway, to see the softer and more vulnerable side of her. So much so that it gave this viewer the shivers.”
