VIDEO: In “Burning The Ground,” Justus Proffit Keeps The Candle Burning

Bar/None Records Artist Justus Proffit has released “Burning The Ground,” a single from his upcoming sophomore album, Speedstar, coming out August 20th, along with an accompanying music video, and his low-key indie folk-rock vibes are formidable.

The track opens with lazily-strummed acoustic guitar sharing space with gently chorused lead guitar lines. A placid bass faithfully hits the root note, establishing a solid rhythmic foundation. The tom-forward drum kit begin to tumble dizzily during the chorus, giving the song an added sense of dimension and avoiding the possibility of sounding repetitive. Meanwhile, Proffit’s lead vocal mirrors the laconic lyrics in his offhand delivery, as if you were listening to him in a chair across the bed from which he’s performing. The package as a whole is as meditative as it is catchy. 

As a whole, the track gives off strong Elliott Smith vibes, combined with a bit of the stoned effortlessness of Kurt Vile. The video, meanwhile, finds Proffit alternately ambling around a cemetery in daylight, relaxing in a very candle-lit bath tub, and dripping red wax over glass heads and religious statuettes. Shot with a VHS look, its amateur look evokes the visual work of alternative artists from the 80s and 90s, and subtly fills in the more gloomy blanks of the music. Hopefully the album will similarly ride the line between depression and dynamism. Gabe Hernandez

 

 

 





Static In Verona "Let Us Be Reckless"

Static In Verona (aka Rob Merz) is preparing to release his latest full-length album, Let Us Be Reckless, on June 25th. This is Rob's third album in the last four years, and he claims it may be his last for a while.

The album's most recent single is called "Savages" and it is slow rocker focused on the various forces that impact relationships.

VIDEO: on “See It,” The Bots Take The City By Skateboard

Rock band The Bots (led by songwriter Mikaiah Lei) have released a video for “See It,” the first single from their new album in seven years, 2 Seater, due for release on Big Indie Records September 8th.

The track begins with a hard-hitting beat, electronic squiggles, and a guitar riff reminiscent of Red Hot Chili Peppers, quickly heating up into a punk-like anthem perfect for soundtracking your latest headphone-focused skateboard spree through your local urban ruin.

The visually dynamic music video, meanwhile, portrays a day in the life of the band members as they engage in the skater lifestyle on the streets on Downtown Los Angeles, pulling off tricks and prowling the urban sprawl, and generally getting up to no good. It’s a near-perfect complement to a catchy, aggressive track that makes one eager to get outdoors after over a year of quarantine. Gabe Hernandez
