The Brummies Release “After Midnight” Music Video

The Brummies offer a little spice and flavor to the work week with the 80s themed, black-lit music video for “After Midnight.” The Nashville-based, Alabama-bred trio rock out in the basement alongside choreographed aerobic dancers and some creatures of the night inspired by the 1989 family fantasy flick, “Little Monsters.” The band even enlisted some family members and close friends to jump in on the adventure.

“Dazzling summer jam…an irresistible listen, effortlessly riding a wave between shiny pop and rock ‘n’ roll.” – Variance

“Polished, rhythmic rock” – AL.com (Alabama)

“A fluffy hug of indie rock touched with soulful harmonies, funk rockish guitar licks, and blessed by a synth wave softness. The production feels like the all-inclusive hybrid funk rock jams of the 70’s with a twist of big pop that makes it timeless.” – American Pancake

“Certainly a welcome slice of escapism.” – American Songwriter

“Lush” – Rolling Stone

“Shimmering” – Billboard

The Brummies are composed of John Davidson, Jacob Bryant, and Trevor Davis. Known for their fresh blend of urgent rock & roll, dreamy indie-folk, and piercing songwriting, the band has a timeless sound crafted by three players in possession of an almost telekinetic musical shorthand.

“This is our dark disco song,” said Jacob. 

“It started with me playing this rhythm on keys one night,” continued Trevor. “At first, it was this long rocking jam that went into this dark halftime outro.”

“[The harmonies were] particularly fun. I was looking for something that deviated from the main melody in the chorus.” said John. “This song started on a synth, which is the first thing you hear in the song. That was always compelling and it eventually evolved into what is now “After Midnight.”

Variance Magazine, who originally premiered the track, said “It might seem like summer is quickly disappearing (or maybe it feels like it never arrived), but “After Midnight” may just have you thinking twice about that, delivering the perfect escape from these weird times.

Only two years ago, The Brummies made their debut in 2018 with the full-length album Eternal Reach, which received high praise from critics and featured GRAMMY award-winning, singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves on the song “Drive Away.” The band returned this year with “Hillside,” which featured in the trailer for Dads, a film-festival favorite directed by Bryce Dallas Howard. Their last single “Sunshine” captured the essence of the late Bill Withers, and now “After Midnight” takes listeners to the darkside.

Fun Lovin’ Criminals Release “Daylight”

Multi-platinum New York trio Fun Lovin’ Criminals return with new material for the first time since 2010 with the release of ‘Daylight’ today and upcoming UK/European ‘Another Mimosa’ tour.

A reworking of the Bobby Womack / Georgie Fame classic; ‘Daylight’ features a guest appearance from renowned vocalist Rowetta of The Happy Mondays. ‘Daylight’ is the lead single lifted from forthcoming album ‘Another Mimosa’, set for release on January 18th 2019 in the 20th anniversary year of their cult album ‘Mimosa’. A variation on the theme of the 1999 album, which became a cult classic with Crims fans for featuring clever re-imaginings of classic covers, remixes and rarities, ‘Another Mimosa’ draws on their seminal influences from the last 20 years.

“Another Mimosa is a continuation of a long tradition of the FLC paying homage to those great songwriters that we stand on the shoulders of,” notes Huey, from our love of hip hop, to soul to jazz and rock we humbly offer our fans another taste of our unique cocktail.”

Recorded in London’s Gibson Studios with life-long “fourth member”, the Grammy-award winning engineer Tim Latham (Hamilton soundtrack, A Tribe Called Quest, De le Soul, Lou Reed), ‘Another Mimosa’ is a collection of beautifully crafted, eclectic ‘original covers’. From Tom Petty’s ‘Mary Janes Last Dance’ switched up with HipHop beats and a classic Rock influence, to the raw blues of Freddie King’s “Going Down’; Ice Cube’s classic “You Know How We Do It” is made their own with Huey’s smoky drawl and the grace of Neil Diamonds’ “Hello Again” receives the FLC treatment. Alongside a high energy reworking of their own ‘Love Unlimited’ and ‘Southside’ and a brand new FLC track ‘Sunset’; its an album that turns charms and intrigues.

The Another Mimosa tour kicks off in Birmingham on the 31st January, and wraps up in Leeds on the 31st March 2019, the UK leg of the tour will also see FLC travel to Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle, Nottingham, Southhampton, Norwich, Worthing, Oxford and London. Tickets for the Another Mimosa tour are available to purchase here .

Still a mainstay on the festival circuit in UK and Europe, FLC are Europe’s best-loved “cousins from New York”, whip-smart story-tellers in smarter Saville Row suits who, through comically tall tales of living large in the neon metropolis, launched a career in music. They burst onto the music scene in 1996, gate crashing the euphoric Brit-pop party with unforgettable finesse. Heralded for their generation defining blend of styles and effortless Lower East Side charm, FLC’s refreshing cocktail of rock n’ roll, funk, blues, soul, hip hop, jazz and latin, gave the Crims a unique timelessness that is still apparent three decades on. The Lower East side trio consists of frontman turned Sony Award winning BBC broadcaster Huey Morgan, his founding partner Brian ‘Fast’ Leiser on bass, trumpet, keys and samples and the groups longest-standing drummer Frank ‘The Rhythm Master’ Benbini.

WELLES – “Rock N Roll”

WELLES video for “Rock N Roll” is a nostalgic, animated trip premiering via JUXTAPOZ.

  • Debut LP, “Red Trees and White Trashes,” available via 300 Entertainment
  • Touring with Dead Sara this September/October
  • Praise from NPR, Pigeons and Planes, NYLON, Consequence of Sound, Paste Magazine and more.

Via Juxtapoz: Take a step inside the world of 23 year old musician, Welles in the psychedelic video for his track, “Rock N Roll”. A song that in Jesse Wells’ words is “a tune in the style, in reverence to, and for the sake of rock n’ roll.”

Having just released his debut record, “Red Trees and White Trashes,” with his unique and jarringly emotive vocal stylings that might sound something along the lines of Kurt Cobain collaborating with Zeppelin, Welles is continuing where the rock greats before him left off.

It comes as no surprise then, that the video for “Rock N Roll” is a nostalgic, animated trip. Created by Diego Huacuja from Basa Estudio out of Mexico City, the visual artist wanted to “visually communicate the personality and vibe of the song,” noting how there’s a “heavy rock and roll tone mixed with a certain indifference and absurdness within the lyrics that I was really drawn to.”

Huacuja continues – “All of the elements and characters represent the lyrics at that moment of the song as well as how I think Jesse would imagine and draw those lyrics. Like the “square” parents. We all know parents are (sometimes) square. The fictional character of Jesse just wants to be free, hang out everywhere, and enjoy the moment.”

“The same happens with the style of illustration. We decided to represent that freedom in the strokes, shapes, colors and adding a fanzine texture which I personally love and think really fits great with the whole video. The artwork has no rules, no walls or floors, we just wanted to create a rad animation video for this cool song.”

Wells is already writing hooks that any of his heroes would envy… The sound on this album is huge, putting Welles in the same league as the smart bands reviving rock’s mainstream… “Red Trees and White Trashes” has the heft and complexity to likely earn a few Grammy nominations.” – NPR
