Mass Effect :: Blastfamous USA Drops ‘BUSA Flock EP’

The collective that is busa flock continues to grow and intrigue.  Recently, Blastfamous USA introduced us to the busa flock concept via the Pull Up video, which featured an amalgamation of Blastfamous USA and Blackillac.  Now that the EP has hit the airwaves, the picture is much clearer in regards to the membership… on top of those previously mentioned, MobleyFort Never and BLXPLTN all pitch in to help create a project with equal parts energy, urgency and intellect.  Blastfamous USA has made it crystal clear in their short existence that they are a force to be reckoned with, and now that the flock has a roster of hard hitting peers, there’s no telling how far they can all fly.

Upward Momentum :: Fort Never Drops ‘Fly High’ Video

Alejandro Jodorowsky would be proud of Fort Never.  The group, known for their deeply emotive and thought-provoking music, decided to take on the monumental task of making the music video for Fly High an homage to the cult classic The Holy Mountain,  and I’m here to tell you that they did it justice.  The track is moving, with its heavy percussion, chanting and soul-stirring sitar work, all wonderfully supporting Chantell Moody‘s lyrics about learning to let go of the steering wheel and let fate be the pilot.  For a band with such a small video catalog at the moment, the strides they are making from video to video are making that catalog quite the formidable one.  Definitely a video of the year contender.  Props to Fort Never and Travis Hoggard, director of the video, for their stellar work.

Mixed Symbols :: Fort Never’s ‘Paradigm’ Is Visually Stunning

Sadly, I am not very familiar with Fort Never, but it is apparent that I need to get familiar as soon as possible.  Paradigm, solely as a song, is strong and captivating.  This music video, however, takes a solid foundation and builds a castle on top of it.  2017 continues to be an amazing, stellar year for Austin music videos, and this not only continues that trend, but I’d argue it raises the bar.  This is the closest thing I’ve seen to Losing My Religion from our endless supply of local talent.  This video demands multiple watches.  Give it a few, like it, share it, and encourage others to do the same.
