Party Lines’ sophomore release presents a strong danceable and emotional contribution to the Rad Summer catalog!
Party Lines make their return with Fool for Losin You, their second release on Rad Summer. The lead and title song sets the tone for the entire five track project with the group’s trademark 80’s influenced synth funk sounds. Between new lead singer Ed Lanier’s soulful voice and a noticeable maturity in song writing, Party Lines have crafted an EP that is not only danceable but also lyrically compelling. Watch for a video to follow soon!
It has been almost two months since Indianapolis MC Sirius Blvck dropped Light in the Attic, the final piece in his trilogy alongside produced Bones of Ghosts. Since the December release, Blvck has continued to hold the public’s interest by performing live, providing guest verses (listen to this smash), and also a steady stream of visuals off of LITA.
Prior to right now, we have seen visuals for both “Yung Vultures” and “Tribe Quest” (above and below) and today we are happy to premiere the music video for “Backwoods”, quite possibly my favorite track on the album. All the videos have been directed by Sam Mirpoorian and the newest video is a perfect slow motion companion piece to the relaxing, smoked out single that I can’t stop playing. Watch it up above and let us know how you feel. Let this trio of visuals dilate your pupils and know that this is not the last music video from Sirius that you will see this year.
After a brief hiatus and some lineup changes the boys are back! Come see Party Lines perform their new EP, ‘Fool For Losin You’ in it’s entirety Friday, February 20th at The White Rabbit Cabaret. They’ll be joined by Oreo Jones and the GhostGunSummer crew plus The Professor and The Hustler, Mr. Kinetik & Rusty Redenbacher! Only $5 and their new EP will be available at all fine digital retailers Monday February 23rd.
Oreo Jones just dropped the LSD inspired visual for “Fhloston Paradise”, the first single off of his upcoming album Cash 4 Gold!
“Fhloston Paradise” is OJ’s ode to Naptown, inspired by the interstellar vacation destination from the Fifth Element. The video for “Fhloston Paradise” finds Oreo connecting with frequent collaborator and direct of Let’s Do Lunch Nate Karamanski. These two previously collaborated on the vid for “Dream Babe” which also featured DMA. The pair’s style can most simply be described as lo-fi psychedelia. Cash 4 Gold is set to drop this spring!
