Spotlight Time :: The PNTHN Visits KTSW 89.9 For ‘Studio C Sessions’

In the information age, everything happens at an accelerated pace.  The process of forming a band, writing a catalog of songs and developing a rapport and chemistry with one another used to take years, but those days are over.  Take The PNTHN, based out of San MarcosTexas.  In what seems like a matter of months, they’ve dropped a couple of projects, a handful of music videos, have played shows throughout Texas, and recently stopped by KTSW for a Studio C Session.  Check it out, give it a like and a share, and definitely support these cats because they’ll be doing bigger things sooner than later.

Moving Pictures :: The ‘Against Shadows’ Trailer Intrigues

While combing through my timeline (as ususal), I stumbled across a trailer for an upcoming dance-based film, Against Shadows.  What immediately caught my eye was the backdrop for the thumbnail : the soon to be relocated Hope Outdoor Gallery in Austin.  Upon further research, I discovered that Stephanie Patrick and team’s vision was to do 5 scenes involving 10 dancers that takes place in both Austin and San Francisco.  A second video provided a bit more insight into the project…

I will definitely be on the lookout for this one.

Warning Signs :: L.Dot And Menace Talk ‘Savage’ On New Music Video

Emcee L.Dot, representing Killeen by way of D.C., is here to make it plain and simple what he’s all about.  On the video for the latest single, SavageL.Dot and collaborator Menace trade bars about what qualifies them as savage, as well as what sets them apart from others making similar claims.  All of this is done over a banger of a beat from TroubleOnTheTrack and Dubb-Z.  CoolyFilms stepped in with the visual assist, and the final product is definitely something that stands up against the competition.  Definitely give this one a like, share and comment if you’re missing hip-hop with substance and heart from the local level.

Wandering Soul :: Cameron Elise Releases ‘Eternally’ Video

Singer-songwriter Cameron Elise has an old-school aesthetic, but she is always looking to move forward and expand her horizons.  Her latest music video, Eternally, was shot while travelling in Mexico, and it shows her living many aspects of the things she speaks of.  The video is as candid as the song is forthright, but it is definitely a glimpse into her soul and her love for making music that speaks to listeners.

Overly Dedicated :: ‘No Sleep No Breaks’ Coming Soon

Those in tune to the Austin hip-hop scene are well aware of MDK (Mindz of a Different Kind) and all the moves they’ve been making over the years.  Blackchyl and Chiclopz have teamed up with Fum Fum KO productions in an effort to express the essence of what they’ve been doing in the form of a short film.  No Sleep No Breaks, from the looks of it, may serve to be an honest look at what it’s like to devote your heart and soul to the culture while still struggling to maintain from day to day throughout the worldy madness and obstacles.  This is one that I am very much excited about, and hopeful that it gets the attention it seems to deserve upon release.
