Alex Ferreira Premieres “Cambio” Music Video on Rolling Stone Spain and Mexico via No Shame

Screen Shot 2015-03-26 at 11.53.45 AM

 

Alex Ferreira has just premiered the official music video for the previously released single, “Cambio”, on Rolling Stone Spain and Mexico. “Cambio” is the first single from Ferreira’s upcoming LP Cinema Tropical, which is due out this summer. The video is a campy, mock-80s clip, featuring Ferreira playing drums, break-dancing, hulla-hooping, learning karate, and – ultimately – flying off into space. Yes, it is exactly as hilarious, ridiculous and amazing as that description makes it sound.

Rolling Stone Spain, had this to say (translated from Spanish):

“Neither the song nor the video lacks detail to recreate the eighties, with its ‘electro’ sound as an aesthetic prop, a change in sound that is abound in Cinema Tropical, Ferreira’s upcoming LP, which will arrive this summer.”

Pompeya premiere video for “Liar” on Entertainment Weekly

L9ZI3Vylfrxi_rt4AbQeP3vE97ttqX8h2Y2UpbRqy4w

 

Pompeya have released the official music video for their most recent single, “Liar”, from their upcoming album, Real. The video was filmed at the Golden Palas Casino, in Moscow, and features a cast of dark and mysterious characters. It was directed by Alexander Khudokon and Leyla Masharipova, who explain the themes and characters:

“During the ‘90s in Russia, the kingpins ruled everything. It was a very violent, corrupt time that we grew up in. We always wanted to make a video that showcased a small part of this lifestyle. ‘Liar’ felt like a good contrast musically, and lyrically it fits quite well.”

To help launch the release, Entertainment Weekly has premiered the video on their site, saying, “the visuals create a fascinating counterpoint to the song’s perky New Wave guitars and Cure-like shimmer.”

The “Liar” single is available for digital purchase, right now, on iTunes. Watch the video here, and click here to read the whole premiere.

Pompeya will also be out on a short tour, at the end of this month, playing shows at SXSW, Los Angeles and Brooklyn. See a full list of dates below!

alex2-700x467

Alex Ferreira – No Shame’s most recent signee – has just announced the title of his upcoming album: Cinema Tropical. The record was made with Andrés Nusser, the songwriter and frontman of the Chilean group, Astro, and was written/developed in four different cities. In terms of sound, Cinema Tropical marks a change in Ferreira’s normally guitar-centered songs, and focuses more on synth textures and electronic beats.

Cinema Tropical is slated for a summer release, but for those of you who can’t wait that long, Ferreira has premiered the first single off the record “Cambio” on Remezcla, who had this to say:

Cinema Tropical (out via No Shame) was developed in four cities and is already promising to be one of the most relevant albums of the year. The first single is appropriately called ‘Cambio’ and showcases the new musical direction Ferreira is taking.

“Cambio” is available on iTunes right now, so pick that up here, and read an exclusive interview with Ferreira onRemezcla, at this link.

punXyqaGjLG7VcVId25QykXbpJIDpqe4VrreWxteZ8g

 

Real, the new album from Moscow-based band Pompeya will be released May 5 via No Shame. Real follows the band’s 2014 Night EP, which received immediate critical buzz, and their 2013 debut LP Tropical. SPIN hailed Night as “shimmering…upbeat, frisky disco”.

As a special preview, the album’s lead single “Liar” is now streaming at Vice’s Noisey blog (click here to view). They had this to say about the track:

“A slinky cut of new wave-ish indie, it’s like an upbeat incarnation of The Cure (sans the white makeup and black hair dye) doing a dance with an updated Duran Duran (sans the mullets and penchant of popped collar pastel trenchcoats). And then, just past the three minute mark, they throw in a damn saxophone. So Rob Lowe in St. Elmo’s Fire. Love this.”

Click here to check out the rest of the premiere, on Noisey, and the tracklist below:

1. Anyway
2. Pasadena
3. OOOOO (Cry About It)
4. To the Orient

Black-Taxi_Web-banners_Facebook-1

 

Black Taxi has released their video for their song “Take Off the Edge.” The quirky clip, directed by Carlos López Estrada, will keep you fully entertained for its duration.

“Life has been tough for a lot of people this last year,” said vocalist Ezra Huleatt, offering a keyhole view into the meaning behind the video and the song. “Sometimes it is important to shake the weight of the world off your shoulders for a few hours, realize that your problems are fairly insignificant in the grand scheme, and let loose.”

He furthered, ‘Take Off the Edge’ is in celebration of those moments when we shine, despite the darkness. I’ve been a fan of Carlos Lopez Estrada’s music videos for a long time so it was exciting to finally collaborate with him.”

Carlos López Estrada is a music video director and a Latin Grammy Award recipient.His music video for “Me Voy,” by Mexican pop band Jesse & Joy, earned the title of Best Short Form Music Video at the 2013 Latin Grammy Awards.

He also co-directed “Kangaroo Court” for the band Capital Cities in 2013, as well as  Carried Away by Passion Pit.

Watch the video here…

The band released its latest album, Electroshock Death Grip, on which “Take Off the Edge” lives. You can pick up your copy on vinyl and CD digipak, at the No Shame store, and digitally on iTunes.

Black Taxi are also doing a residency at Rockwood Music Hall in New York. Check out the details and ticket links below.

Loveskills Premieres video for “Chanel” via Village Voice, No Shame

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 12.06.24 PMLoveskills has premiered the video for “Chanel”, on Village Voice. The video – directed by Yuichi Uchida, who also worked on the “Fine Lines” video – is, as the Voice describes, “woozy and endearingly hazy”, and features Latiana Blue, running in and out of the narrator’s imagination. Loveskills, Richard Spitzer, explains:

“The story is like an unobtainable dream. I’m trying to get a clear vision of this girl but the memories are too abstract and too hard to find.”

You can check out the video below, and the full premiere – including an interview with Loveskills – at the Village Voice.
