Pompeya Releases “Pasadena” Music Video via No Shame

pompeya-2015-real-no-shame

The music video for “Pasadena” from Pompeya is premiering now at My Old Kentucky Blog here. Of the song, the band explains, “While we were in Pasadena only once in our lives, the meaning of the place is like so many others. You have an idea of what a place is, and create a new context for it with your imagination. The name sounds romantic, almost cinematic. Again, completely removed from what the place itself may be in reality…We’ve created our own romantic reality in its place.” “Pasadena” is off the band’s latest release Real, out now.

In addition, limited edition vinyl of Real will be available July 31. The vinyl comes with a digital download of the album including bonus tracks. [Preorder here]

Real is receiving widespread critical acclaim:

“…danceable grooves and funky baselines…the definition of pop.”—NPR

“…perky New Wave guitars and Cure-like shimmer.”—Entertainment Weekly

“…a glitzy, neon-sunset, convertible cruise down palm-treed lanes, which is all very confusing because, again, they’re from Moscow, a city not exactly known for its synth-lush indie exports…the escapism feels great.”—Stereogum

“…an album that’s buoyant and catchy while exploring new sounds.”—Paste

“These guys bring colorful music to the gloomy landscapes…”—MTV

“A slinky cut of new wave-ish indie…”—Vice’s Noisey

R3LqlKsFz26-9uvV_FLiWLUkPCP5jm1YFicKDWiBNgk

Felix Da Housecat has just released the official music video for his track, “Is Everything Ok?“, the first single released from his upcoming LP, Narrative of Thee Blast IllusionThe stunning and surreal video explores societal prejudice towards unconventional relationships through the lens of forbidden love between a human woman and an extra terrestrial. It’s a perfect fit for the track’s futuristic Drive-inspired synth melancholia. The video was premiered earlier today on Blackbook, who had this to say about the track:

Premiering today on BlackBook is Felix Da Housecat’s video for “Is Everything OK,” a spacey track with sticky percussion, robotic vocals, and an uplifting chorus that will get caught in your skull and refuse to leave. It sounds like something that might have come out of Daft Punk’s latest album.

You can check out the video and the full premiere on Blackbook, at this link. Be sure to pre-order Narrative of Thee Blast Illusion, on iTunes, at this link!

To help celebrate the announcement, Vice THUMP helped premiere the album’s first single Is Everything OK?. Here’s some insight from Felix, via the interview:

“I’ve always been about albums, but in 1992 I said to myself, ‘no one is doing albums,’ and I wanted to tell a story… that’s always been my thing. For me, [albums] aren’t fun, they’re draining. When they’re done I’m glad, and when it comes out, my brain has been released to the universe!”

Alex Ferreira releases “Cambio” (Acoustic) Video via No Shame

10sXsKs8g_v8q-rDbfekHMKJrQ1rulaCIWn5qNwitxM

Alex Ferreira has just released a video of him performing a solo, acoustic version of his newest single “Cambio”. The clip was shot immediately after the filming of the official music video, and recorded in one take. As mentioned before, “Cambio” is the first single off of Ferreira’s No Shame debut, Cinema Tropical (out June 16, 2015).

Longtime fans will find this solo arrangement more in line with the “classic” Alex Ferreira sound, with its more traditional acoustic guitar/vocal accompaniment. Regardless of whether you’re new to Alex or have been following him for years, this performance offers a stark and formidable contrast to the more dance and synth heavy instrumentation of the original.

You can check out the video below, and purchase the “Cambio” single, on iTunes (click here for link).

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.”
