Noleac Yahsin Releases New Music Video For “Par.T” Amidst Launch Of New Mixtape

Snippets of red ballons, party-goers, and a cosmic sky splice the images of a sullen girl singing “… she just wanna party” in Noleac Yasin’s latest music video for “Par.T.” DJ and producer, Devyn Symone, says Noleac Yahsin is a joint effort between her and singer/songwriter Caelon Reed. “When I’m creating beats, whatever flows out of [Reed’s] mouth, goes on the track. Whatever we both like.” That’s why the pair choose not categorize themselves into any particular genre. Influenced by Timbaland, James Blake, and Amy Winehouse, the duo create neyo-soul rhythms, interposed by driving trap lines, all under alluring, relaxed vocals in the latest single. “Par.T” tells the story of Reed in the aftermath of a break-up, looking to find peace in others, and finally finding it in herself. “Par.T” can be heard on Noleac Yahsin’s forthcoming mixtape, Maktub, to be released November 11th. For now, get hooked on the indie-esque music video for “Par.T” below. –Sade A. Spence

Best of CMJ 2014: Malatese

From Jake's report of day 3 of the CMJ Music Marathon 2014: "Virginia's Malatese (from Harrisonburg, which JUST makes it into the area of our coverage) plays something that may be referred to as post-no-wave-pre-post-pre-punk music.  Their melodies/jams/grooves/whatever you wanna call 'em are dissonant and aggressive, drowned under a wave of distortion and Travis' noisy vocals.  Their music is already a little strange and head-tilt inducing, but Travis adds this extra little element of weird that brings it to a level of ingenuity.  First of all, he runs his vocals through a 404 sampler, using all the weird delay or pitch bending effects to add this monstrous ambience.  He's also got a generally hilarious stage presence, what with this funny shake dance that he does, all the weird noises he randomly spews out and the funny faces. He's not afraid to look like a little stupid up there because he's having good ol' tortured fun, which in turn means I'm having fun; if he brought it to an even further level of crazy he could be a regular Iggy Pop.

Anthony Pirog's video for "The New Electric"

 Anthony Pirog may be the best electric guitarist on the East Coast, and his new album, Palo Colorado Dream, is his best work yet. The album covers as much ground as the electric guitar allows, and is impossible to describe in just a few words. One could call it "avant" something, like "jazz" or "indie," but what it really is is Anthony Pirog incarnate. The guitar has become an extension of the man, his technical brilliance limited only by his fantastic imagination. How Anthony found time to craft such a gem is a mystery, as he's the most in demand guitarist in the area, part of countless other projects. Yet craft this he did, and it's gorgeous, and he made a video to go along with it too. Check out the video below, and follow the link to the album above for more. Take some time with it; you wont be disappointed. --Natan Press

Baby Bry Bry releases new EP, I Learned to Drown Myself Out, Part I.

 It's finally here! Last night, Baby Bry Bry & The Apologists played the release show for their new "single," a four song digital/casette release titled I Learned to Drown Myself Out, Part I (Part II is coming "soon"--I want it NOW!). Baby Bry Bry's live shows are action packed and exhilarating. The Apologists, some of the most accomplished musicians in DC, provide the rocket fuel that launches Bry Bry's stage presence into the stratosphere. Every show wins an entire new room full of fans, and as the rooms get bigger, they stay just as crowded with crazy kids rocking their faces off. It's been a year since Bry Bry's last release, Is It Anything Or Is It Everything, but it feels longer. 

Bry Bry's style is all over the place, ranging from blue-eyed soul to wild and crazy punk, and the first two songs off I Learned to Drown Myself Out, Part I are a perfect example of his range. "Lately"  starts similarly to Nirvana's "Territorial Pissings," and for about a minute it's a straight up old-school punk-rocker. But then there's a little bridge with a sweet vocal melody and background harmonies. And then a vicious guitar solo. And then more sweetness.

"Just Because It's Art (Doesn't Mean It's Good)" could be on a late Ween album, or The Pretenders. It's a dancey island kind of thing. Yacht-rocky, but with punk-rock sounds. Humorous and hummable and head-bobbing good, with some fun changes throughout.

If you get the cassette you also get a cover of Big Black's "Bad Penny" and a song called "Slumzzz." There are only 50 copies of the cassette, and a lot of them got scooped up at the show, so ACT NOW! --Natan Press

DJ Wise B Prepares To Remaster His Mixtape Called I.F.O

Rashad Brockington, better known on the 1s and 2s as DJ Wise B, is gearing up to remaster the latest EP off his record label, called I.F.O. Inspiration For Others. DJ Wise B prides himself on spinning an energy packed set, go-go style. “It’s interactive, a call and repeat with the people in the crowd,” describes the DMV native. The 22-year old turntablist and hip-hop producer started DJ-ing thanks to his pops challenging him to a rap battle- winner gets to pursue a rap career. Brockington lost the battle, but was gifted with a set of turntables instead. “My dad said everybody needs a DJ.” Daddy knows best! Brockington now runs the music label CAMP 421 and has acquired the rapper Supreme Elite, but is looking to reach others outside of the hip-hop persuasion. “I want street artists and opera singers all kinds of artists” envisions Brockington. Supreme Elite and DJ Wise B will release their two-point-oh version of the I.F.O. EP in early November on Spotify, Pandora, and iTunes. Until then, take a listen to the heavy bass and driving trap beats of the original I.F.O EP below. –Sade A. Spence
