SIRIUS BLVCK – Backwoods (Official Music Video)

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.

Oreo Jones – Fhloston Paradise (Official Music Video)

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!
