Flood Magazine: Debut Of Fletcher C Johnson’s Video For “In My Time”

With Georges Méliès as his muse, Johnson converted his living room into a makeshift movie set for a series of eye-popping magic tricks, recalling the confounding imagery and physical comedy of one of cinema’s godfathers. By some miracle of trick photography, CGI, or simple editing software, Johnson’s video is nearly as playful as his music.

The Southern Sounding: Debut Of My Golden Calf’s Video For “Flavor Packets”

Filled with eclectic and compelling arrangements, their songs tell persuasive stories of characters and emotions bound together in a whirring atmosphere of pop and rock creativities. Memorable hooks and arena-sized melodies vie for your attention as the music submerges your senses in a wash of gauzy rhythms and early ‘90s rock movements. The band has released two albums – “Rituals to Make New” and “Perfume Brute” – and have recently shared a one-off single called “Flavor Packets,” which finds the band exploring a more dreamlike rock sound which brings to mind artists like Deerhunter and Grizzly Bear.

For The Rabbits: Debut Of Good In The Dark’s Video For “If You Feel It”

A band who are always happy to add a dance-beat to everything they do, If You Feel It is a particularly frenetic affair; as the band explain, “we wanted to explore noise and tempos and vocals that spike and plunge and work their way up to a fury again. And because it’s us, it had to be danceable”. It’s the sort of track that instantly transports back to us the dance-punk scene of the early 2000’s; scratchy Rapture-like guitar riffs, bouncing bass lines LCD System would be proud of and yelp along vocals the match of Le Tigre or early Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
