Pinky Pinky debuts ‘All the Birds’ visual amid North American Tour

Published

 LA-based music duo Pinky Pinky just dropped a new video from their debut album, Turkey Dinner. “All The Birds,” directed by Ryan Daniel Browne, is a whimsical and surrealist visual. The pair dips their hands into all sorts of hijinx including performing for a life-size bird, eating bite-size whole turkeys, and starring in a kawaii-style ramen commercial. 

Vocalist/drummer Anastasia Sanchez shares about making the video, “The video’s director, Ryan Browne, had the idea of making a video inspired by a series of bizarre Japanese food commercials that he had seen. The song is more or less about losing touch with reality and we very much thought that his video premise and the song married perfectly. We had a blast shooting it (part in our parents’ backyard), but in the LA summer, our friends just about got heat stroke while dressed in the mascot costumes.”

The video arrives in the midst of Pinky Pinky’s lengthy North American tour in support of The Growlers. They’re still set to play Chicago, Detroit, and Washington before heading off to Europe with BRONCHO in October. 

Produced by Hanni El Khatib and Jonny Bell, Turkey Dinner finds the band maturing sonically as the two, while maintaining the rambunctious energy that fuels their experiences as LA youths. The album includes previous releases “Loose Change,” “Mr. Sunday,” “My Friend Sean” and “Do Me Dirty (Charlie),” and follows last year’s Hot Tears EP.

Common faces Fatherhood in ‘Show Me That You Love’ video featuring Jill Scott

Published

on

Twitter/@Common

Common’s resume is that of a 21st-century renaissance man: GRAMMY Award-winning rapper, renowned activist, recipient of an Academy Award for his song “Glory” from the 2014 film Selma and a key influence in the emergence of a movement of thoughtful black culture spanning from Dave Chappelle to Ta-Nehisi Coates. However, in spite of all of this success, one phone call from his daughter Omoye — in which she told him that he was falling short as a father — caused his world to crumble. He had to reevaluate fatherhood, love, faith — everything.

The emcee now debuts the video for “Show Me That You Love,” which depicts this big bang moment that sparked a period of therapy and self-examination that led to the writing of his New York Times best-seller Let Love Have The Last Word and the creation of his new album, Let Love (out August 30th on Loma Vista Recordings).

Let Love finds Common sounding as vital as ever, with a soul-forward sound that delves into issues of fatherhood, masculinity, self-care and more. With contributions from A-Trak, BJ The Chicago Kid, Leon Bridges, Daniel Caesar, Dwele, Leikeli47, Jill Scott and more, it’s a radical statement that is among hip-hop’s most incisive, insightful albums this year.

Watch the video for “Show Me That You Love,” directed by Sadé Clacken Joseph.
