New Music Video. Jeremy Loops – Sinner.

On Tuesday, local pied piper Jeremy Loops premiered his new video for ‘Sinner’ on Billboard.com. While any video with a narrative runs the risk on being a bit cringe-worthy, the story-telling nature of Jeremy Loops songs made this ambiguous tale set just outside Cape Town ideal for the track. ‘Trading Change, Loops’ debut album, will drop during January 2015 in the United States via YEBO Music. The LP reflects Loops’ time growing up in a small town in South Africa, and how he decided to pursue a career in music after graduating from business school and deciding a career in... Read more

New Music Video. Allah Las – Follow You Down.

Allah-Las’ second album, Worship The Sun, just yesterday was released as a follow up to their 2012 maiden effort. It expands on their foundational sound, bringing in a little bit of Latin percussion and electric folk to their Californian aesthetic, without losing the sense of timelessness that comes with anything they do. The band plays off a bygone time, but with summer just around the corner it’s going to be the perfect album to end off the year. Here’s the new video for ‘Follow You Down’ off the album, which you can listen to in whole below: Worship The Sun by... Read more
