John Stamps – 1999 (Official Music Video)

The offical music video for ‘1999’ off of John Stamps’ House Plants EP is here! This visual is the product of eating one too many mushrooms in the desert and deciding to shoot a video. The EP itself finds Stamps reuniting with frequent collaborator KNags for their signature blend of melodies, atmospherics and snapping drums. Check out the project in it’s entirety below!

Jarrett Michael drops his Rad Summer debut with What A Year, an ode to the many changes that have inspired the young rapper.  His blending of snappy 808s and intricate story telling immediately grabs your attention, but his soul baring vocals on tracks like “answered?’s” will leave you possessed.  What A Year is the throwback hip hop album you’ve been waiting for this spring!

Sirius Blvck – me, myself, and all my friends (Official Music Video)

In his new video for “Me, Myself, And All My Friends,” he mobs around the streets with his posse. The tint throughout on the visual feels like you’re in a dream of his, which would fit the theme of peering into his mind. “Me, Myself & All My Friends’ music video gives you an inside look at the brewing hip-hop/arts district in my city of Indianapolis,” writes Sirius via email. “Crawl through the crowded streets with me and my team of miscreants, savants, punks, poets, addicts, prophets and painters.”
