Published

on

The Weeks just released a performance video of their single “Two Moons” and announced five headline shows across their home state of Mississippi.

The live clip was filmed at the Columbia City Theater in Seattle, WA on the band’s headlining North American Fall Tour in support of their latest album, Two Moons. It was directed & produced by Keirda Bahruth, edited by Rick Ballard, and filmed by Keirda Bahruth, Domenic Barbero, and Rick Ballard.

Two Moons was recorded in Nashville with Eric Masse (Rayland Baxter, Mikky Ekko, Robert Ellis). Visit the band’s store at crookedletter.net for exclusive bundles including limited run vinyl, cassettes & CDs.  

Raucous Mississippi rock combo The Weeks got its start in 2006 while all four members were still in high school. Staffed by twin brothers Cyle (lead vocals) and Cain Barnes (drums), Samuel Williams (guitar, vocals), and Damien Bone (bass), they released their debut album, Comeback Cadillac, in 2008. Their swaggering, sludgy, and slightly southern indie rock was further expanded with the release of five total albums including four studio albums and one live project.

The video can be watched HERE. See all tour dates below.

Artist Mndsgn Announces new Mini-Series Ringoo In Colour

Published

episode still

On the heels of Mndsgn’s latest album Rare Pleasure, he returns to announce a new mini-series and release its first episode. Ringgo in Colour aims to show a different side of the artist and unpack his various influences, as the first episode dives into his love of illustration, the artist himself creating all the artwork for the album cover and singles. Shot and directed by Ross Harris.

Speaking on his aim with the series, Mndsgn says, “the world isn’t so black & white, rather a vast spectrum of hues. This is just Ringgo in colour.”

Director Ross Harris adds, “I feel like Ringgo approaches his art whether it be music or drawing or paint from a place of playful curiosity but always ends up someplace deep and truly resonant. I aspire to the same process.”

Ringgo in Colour also includes appearances from Devin Morrison, who is in Ringgo’s live band and sings on the record, and arrives after the aforementioned Rare Pleasure was released earlier this month via Stones Throw Records. Mndsgn’s third album on the label, the record, which SPIN called “a monument to life’s basic delights,” truly shows the artist’s evolution from his roots as a heralded beatmaker to vocalist, songwriter, and arranger.

Though he began writing for the album in 2018, the final recordings took just a week in studio with the help of trusted collaborators: Swarvy on bass, guitar and as Musical Director for the sessions, Stones Throw label mate Kiefer Shackelford on keys, drum work by Will Logan, the blessed percussion of Carlos Niño, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson on strings, and accompanying vocals from Fousheé and Anna Wise.

The follow-up to 2016’s Body Wash, Rare Pleasure includes the previously-released singles “Medium Rare,” “Slowdance” and “Hope You’re Doin’ Better” and follows his virtual release show and his two sold-out shows at The Lodge Room in LA earlier this month. Inspired by soundtrack music, samba, exotica and ’70s/’80s library records, the album is intensely intimate, sourcing lyrics from Mndsgn’s family and interpersonal experiences, and reflective of the world at large. Despite the tenderness of the recordings, the music is joyfully vibrant and draws on Mndsgn’s formative experiences as a b-boy, showcasing a range of rhythms that will make you want to groove. Take a listen to Rare Pleasure here.

Rema drops Afrobeat track dedicated to women around the globe

Published

on

Rema by Niyi Okeowo

For the third week in a row, Rema is set to release “anotha banga.” Dropping on Mavin Records/Jonzing World, “Woman” is a song that expresses his appreciation and admiration for all females. 

Recently crowned Apple Music’s Up Next artist – previously awarded to Billie Eilish, Khalid & H.E.R – Afropop’s prince Rema has now released a trio of singles throughout June and July. He kicked things off with “Ginger Me,” a song created in a late-night studio session in London with UK producer The Elements. Quickly followed by trap-influenced track “Alien” which took us on a trippy journey through the mind of a young heartbreaker. 

Crediting his parents for introducing him to Fela Kuti & 2Face, Rema draws influences far beyond West Africa with Bollywood, Trap, Afrobeats, and Pop all becoming part of his trademark sound. With co-signs from the likes of Drake, Barack Obama and now Rihanna, Rema is on his way for a global takeover.
