Black Milk Questions Society On True Lies Single

Black Milk takes society to task in “True Lies” from his forthcoming album Fever. He questions the school system over a track that is equal parts funk, rock and hip-hop. Black Milk said in a press release about “True Lies”:

“I talk about how traditions and institutions are used to keep people from questioning the world around them and from demanding more for themselves. When I made the track, I envisioned a world full of zombies being told what to believe. Only a few come to realize most of what they’ve been taught about and within the institutions, like church, school, and government, around them are lies to impede both personal and collective progress.”

Fever will be released via Computer Ugly and Mass Appeal February 23rd.

Cherri V Shares Video For Swimming From Brown Eyed Soul

Cherri V is getting closer to the release of her Brown Eyed Soul debut and she has shared the video for “Swimming” featuring Roxxann. The singer-songwriter attends a house party and is introduced to a guy by her friends. Cherri V explains,

“There’s nothing like meeting a guy through friends, ones who can vouch for him and give you that casual introduction. No pressure, just friends amongst friends, getting familiar in a relaxed setting.  “I’m glad Asylum 33 (who produced the video) were able to capture that house party relaxed feel. I also wanted to take a little more of a casual approach for this video, compared to ‘Leave Me Be’, and shove my real friends in front of the camera lol. The shots in the pool were a highlight for me! I’m really proud of this visual.”
