Music Video Premiere: Lemme Adams – Toys Director’s Cut

We have an awesome premiere for you today! San Francisco based psych alternative rock band, Lemme Adams has given us the opportunity to premiere the Director’s Cut of their award winning music video, Toys. You may have heard that Toys has won top honors (Best Song) for 2014's Music Video Race.

This semi violent, anti/uber masculine music video is drenched with dark humor and irony. Putting a motion picture behind Adam’s dark pop songs is probably one of the best ideas…ever. We watch him teeter between childhood and manhood while obliterating a number of archetypes that are supposed to represent what it means to be a male human being on planet Earth. It’s all done in a starkly exaggerated manner, and we can totally tell why this music video won an award.

Enjoy it. Dig the art, dig on the humor but try not to soak in the testosterone spurting moments in the video too much! Or you can, but it might not do you much good because Lemme Adams and his bandmates are really sweet guys and we’re always into covering their badass releases and music videos. -je

You can catch Lemme Adam's next show in San Francisco at Elbo Room with Hungry Skinny and Talk of Shamans on September 19th.


An Aussie punk in Brooklyn, Wax Witches releases "Celebrity Beatings" LP on 09.09

Australian Alex Wall’s solo project, Wax Witches, is a display of, and an ode to, an upbringing immersed in the fast-paced three-chord blast beat ballads and sludge bangers of the 80’s California punk culture. The one-man brain-baby released its sophomore LP, “Celebrity Beatings,” last year: a pissed off sixteen-song tantrum of a record, purporting attitude, discontent, and refusal to conform in every note sung. Wall, who is also the frontman in the Gold Coast’s Bleeding Knees Club, plays every instrument on the record, incorporating some psych influences immediately apparent in his heavily delayed vocals. Wax Witches is everything a bare-bones punk fan would ever need, as it comes from the heart of a lifelong bare-bones punk fan. His follow-up LP, titled “Centre of Your Universe,” is currently out in Australia, and is due for a worldwide release on September 9th under Burger Record's wing. He is currently touring the US. – JP Basileo

Young Statues Opening for The Early November at WCL Aug. 5 & 6

For the next two evenings, Young Statues will open a pair of sold-out shows, headlined by The Early November, upstairs at World Café Live. The quartet brings a youthful exuberance, accompanied by unshielded emotional narrative elements. However, while the lyrics take on a personal shape and sound, the overall instrumental notes are a positive, crisply composed boost of adrenaline. Young Statues reveal enough lyrically to connect on that relatable level, while holding back just enough to not fall in the deep. Get to World Café Live early, and catch them opening, followed by Michigan husband and wife duo Empire Empire! (I was a Lonely Estate), who are set to release a new LP You Will Eventually Be Forgotten, via Count Your Lucky Stars Records, later this month. The Early November will then perform an intimate acoustic set of their greatest hits. World Café Live, 3025 Walnut St. 8pm, $15, All Ages - Michael Colavita


NYC Artist Ryn Weaver goes viral with 'Octahate' + releases new single 'Promises'

Listed first on Billboard's Emerging Artist Chart this past June, Ryn Weaver is the latest NYC example of how well produced electronic music can generate viral web interest even in the absence of a "real world" presence. From debut track "Octahate" (streaming) - which gathered over a million plays on Soundcloud - to the second very recent single "Promises," Ryn's tunes show a welcome edge probably at least in part ascribable to Passion Pit's frontman Michael Angelakos contribution - he produced the first single. Other prominent names such as Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat have also shown support for Ryn, so don't feel shy to spend some time with her music. We are looking forward to see her in a live setting. - Rebecca Blandon
