Tameca Jones Debuts Video For Sandman From Her Naked EP

Tameca Jones released her Naked EP last year and today she debuts her video for “Sandman.” Jones and her paramour spend romantic times together before he disappears and she wakes up from her dream. The Austin, Texas singer’s soul and blues combined sensibilities made her an in-demand local performer and earned her an appearance on Gary Clark Jr.’s The Story Of Sonny Boy Slim. Jones is finding her way as a solo artist and this year she will be an official artist at the SXSW Music Festival.

Kilo Kish Drops Video For Obsessing & Going On Tour With Vince Staples

Kilo Kish and Elliott Sellers co-directed her video for “Obssessing” which features her running through a parking lot while her sanity unravels. Kish says, “The song was called “Obsessing” before it was written. It was one of many prompts of different social subjects I placed in front of myself when I started writing. I like to explore man-made spaces and boxes we create in which to live more comfortably. The mind is one of those things, boxes inside boxes and sometimes it can become stressed. I’m also kind of obsessed with this image of an individual malfunctioning, a cog in the flow of society. One walking the wrong way up the stairs during rush hour or whatever. Something not working perfectly well in its surroundings. Blending, but not exactly. Boring suit, boring parking garage and some girl (me) just exploding. So for this video, I was excited to play this game.”

Kilo Kish released her Reflections In Real Time last year and she is going on Vince Staples’ Life Aquatic Tour in February. See tour dates below.

Indie Rock Duo The New Up Debut No Fly Zone Single

San Franciso-based rock duo The New Up are getting ready to drop their debut album, Tiny Mirrors in a few weeks. “No Fly Zone” is an impassioned appeal about denouncing the things that separate people against a palette of moody guitars and synthesizers. Noah Reid and ES Pitcher have been recording as The New Up since they met at a music festival years ago and Tiny Mirrors is their first recording with an outside producer (Jack Frost). Pitcher had this to say about their sound, “The music that we love—the music that really speaks to us—takes risks and makes an impact, and there seems to be less of that in this day and age. We wanted to bring back that punk-rock edge with a message of equality and peace reminiscent of Bob Marley and U2, but with our own unique sound.”  The New Up is giving a free show this Friday at Yolo Brewing Company in Sacramento, California and they have other shows coming up after the release of Tiny Mirrors which can be pre-ordered at their site.
