Directed by Spool, “On The Highway,” is Pennan Brae’s lead single from his third album, Early Rise. Shot in LA and Las Vegas during the summer, the video features talented Los Angeles actors Caitlin Bray, Liesel Kopp, and Keaton Shyler.

A nice story accompanies this video allowing both visual and audio pleasures as…

"Hypochondriac" - Kunvuk

The video "Hypochondriac" by metal band Kunvuk is metal to the extreme. Shot in abandoned farmhouses in Adelaide and Leeton, "Hypochondriac" is supremely intense, both musically and visually. Shot from different angles and camera speeds, the viewer is treated to the band’s performance of the track. You may begin to wonder if you’re losing it before it’s all over, but you’re not. Just be prepared to hold on for the ride through this metal sensation of inhibition and insanity. The…

"I Found You" by Barley Station

“I Found You” by Barley Station combines the elements of melodic pop/country with a distinctive rockabilly with a Johnny Cash kind of country feel. The lyrics tell the story of a man who has finally found his true love and is happy, carefree, and enjoying life. Rootsy alternative country at its best, catchy guitar riffs, driving rhythms, and a contagious harmony with simple but cool, happy go lucky lyrics make this a likeable and great track that’s easy on the ears and warming…

Chinese Songwriters Are Mad and They Ain't Going To Take It Anymore

A fair amount of fuss was made regarding Music Copyright Society of China's (MCSC) announcement that it had reached an licensing agreement with Baidu, China's top online infringer of copyrights. MCSC even announced that they had received their first royalty payment from China's largest search engine (Yes, Baidu is like merging Google with the old Napster). Finally, a major breakthrough that should please everyone, especially Chinese songwriters, right?

Not quite. On the same…

Redline Addiction - "Sadie (with The District Revival)"

"Sadie (with The District Revival)" is the first single to be released from "Letters." The track has a nice intro with acoustic guitars and cello, and is an emotion evoking piece expressing true love for the lovely Sadie to whom life and love have not been kind. The singer soothes her with sweet promises and strong lyrics, beautifully matched by a mix of electric and acoustic guitars, the cello, and a harmony sung just right."…

F.L.Y. DreamStar - "Kush and Pain"

Set in the backdrop of the inner city, F.L.Y. DreamStar’s video “Kush and Pain” is a cool slow tempo hip hop/rap track. The talented rapper uses his rhymes to tell the world that that he’s moving on and up. He proclaims that “Life’s a b**** and she’s having fun with me,” and it does indeed appear that he’s taking it all in stride, having fun and just rolling with it all. Interesting visuals as the video keeps it simple and real, shot mostly on railroad tracks surrounded by…

"Venomous Love Affair" - Cutting Edge

“Venomous Love Affair” by the indie rock band Cutting Edge addresses the attraction of Las Vegas and how it can seduce one before they are even aware of the seduction. Those of us who have been to Sin City knows that you can find anything you want there – gambling, drinking, women, or the night life in any form in which you may be seeking it. The music is full of universal sounds that surround you with a bit of everything. With the backdrop of Las Vegas, the music along with the…

R A D I A T E - Rick Denzien

Rick Denzien’s “R A D I A T E” is a mid to slightly fast tempo, very upbeat, uplifting, and enjoyable video and track. With a voice reminiscent of John Anderson or Phil Collins, and a musical style very close to R.E.M., Denzien hits the mark with “R A D I A T E.” In this soft rock number, Denzien beautifully harmonizes lyrics that tell the story of radiating love – the kind that comes from deep inside the heart. It’s a pure and touching reminder of what we should all be doing –…
