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.

Ambar Lucid vibrates higher in new ‘Questioning My Mind’ music video
On the heels of the release of “Questioning My Mind,” Dominican/Mexican-American songstress Ambar Lucid shares the accompanying video. Directed by TheVideoboy, “Questioning My Mind” sees Ambar following her younger self, slowly enveloping herself in vines as time goes on. The visual is the second from Ambar this Fall, following the Edward Allerton-directed “Mar De Llanto.”
Ambar shares about the song, “I wrote ‘Questioning My Mind’ during a time when everything in my life was beginning to change drastically. My music career was becoming more stable and I noticed how it made people in my life act a bit different. It made me question many things about myself and many things that were once familiar to me. I came to the realization that just because someone is close to me, it doesn’t mean they’ll always be positive towards the way my life is going.”
The visual for “Questioning My Mind” arrives in the midst of a wildly busy and successful year for Ambar. She released her debut EP Dreaming Lucid, shared the documentary Llegaron Las Flores, which chronicles her journey to reconnect with her father after he was deported to Mexico, and toured North America with Cuco, Omar Apollo, and Mon Lafarte.

Quiet Luke’s ‘Berlin’ is bona fide electronic Heaven
New York-based singer-songwriter Quiet Luke has released a new song from his forthcoming debut album. “Berlin” is a nostalgic meditation on being in love, the artist remembering a surreal period in the city of the same name infused with electronic and pop elements. The track is his third release this year, following visuals for “Something To Lose” and “Interference.”
Quiet Luke is an NYC based singer-songwriter and producer from Hollywood, Florida. His experience creating an identity as a first-generation American while being simultaneously exoticized and outcast serves as the bedrock for his artistic dialogue. With a unique perspective on culture and history, the artist utilizes the canons of rock ‘n roll, the avant-garde, and sci-fi/fantasy escapism in conjunction with a musical foundation spanning classical, beat making, and pop music as tools to build a new world.
Coming of age in a fractured world metamorphosing into something even more sinister, the artist found himself in his “blue period” between 2015 and 2019. He released two EPs, Beholden in 2016 and Your Happy Place the year after, admittedly prototypes, while he meticulously crafted his masterpiece. His forthcoming debut album, 21st Century Blue, is a thesis on the first third of his life in the form of an “epic.”
