“WANTED YOU MORE” – LADY ANTEBELLUM
This new country song will be heading straight to the top of the charts. The wholesome, All-American, Lady Antebellum mix things up with a video that is edgy, intense, and almost has a Twilight kind of feel in the ending. Written during a tour soundcheck, they described the song as the next stage in their “Need You Now” saga. Fun fact about Hillary Scott, the opening acts for Tim McGraw’s 2010 Tour were Lady Antebellum and Love & Theft. Chris Tyrell drumming for L&T and Hillary fell in love during the tour. Since then, they’ve gotten married and he’s the new drummer for Lady Antebellum!
“THE WIND” – ZAC BROWN BAND
Mike Judge created Beavis & Butthead and King Of The Hill on TV plus movies like the cult classic, Office Space. What’s he up to lately? Producing and creating the new video for the Zac Brown Band. The bluegrass styled video for “The Wind” is animated and Zac gets remade as a Robo Redneck following a crazy swamp accident. The new CD, Uncaged, by the Zac Brown Band is set to release today. Two notable collaborations, “Day That I Die” with Amos Lee and a Caribbean-styled jam with Jason Mraz on “Jump Right In”.
“INVINCIBLE” – MGK Ft ESTER DEAN
Who’s the first white rapper to ever win at the famed Apollo Theatre in NYC? MGK, aka Machine Gun Kelly, got his moniker after his lightning quick rhymes. He’s a guy from Ohio who created some mixtapes, got noticed by MTV’s Sucker Free show, and Jimmy Iovine and Diddy signed him to Bad Boy. First impression is “white rapper”, oh no! but he’s got a great flow here on “Invincible”. Hearing Ester Dean with the great hook though, keeps reminding me of Eminem with Rihanna during the song.
“UNACCEPTABLE YOU ” – THE YOUNG PRESIDENTS With Corey Glover
A new two man rock band out of New York that aspire to bring back the “power trio” of rock: guitars, bass, drums. Love that their heroes are Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, and Nirvana! Yet, the reason I added this video is that they got Corey Glover from Living Colour to sing on it. WOW! That powerful voice, Corey’s music has always been on the verge of “too much” but what a great surprise seeing his return here. Did a little search on Corey, Living Colour released a CD of new material in 2009 (who knew?) and he’s leading a new band called Galactic, based out of New Orleans.
