Social Network :: ChurchCough Celebrates Collaboration With ‘ChurchCough & Friends’

artworks-000458499030-zhb7ku-t500x500

Like George Clinton once said, ‘the funk can not only move, it can remove’.  In my opinion, he meant removal in the sense of healing, and the healing power of music is undeniable.  With that in mind, I think of ChurchCough as both therapeutic and entertaining the way that they bask in positive outlooks and affirmations.  For ChurchCough & Friends, if it’s not obvious by the title, ConductHer and NonsenseSpence called in the help of some fellow like-minded artists to multiply the positive vibes.  I’m honored to have been a part of this project alongside TokenEddie Baty, and Lemur & Dream Puppy.  Check it out, share it around, and keep supporting your local creatives!

Permanent Vacation :: ChurchCough And Nathan Bailey Combine Forces For ‘Off’

When ConductHer and NonsenseSpence first joined up to form ChurchCough, I was immediately interested in their approach and aesthetic… it reminded me of the most free spirited aspects of bands like Yacht and Hot Chip.  The beats are tight and driving, but the vocals are sparse and stream of consciousness.    Their debut video, Creek, was a nice thunderclap in the distance… a sense that a storm was coming.  For Off, the crew reconnected with Nathan Bailey, and this time you’re dropped right into the eye of the hurricane of creativity.  The video is driven by a handful of strong images, immaculate lighting and a sense of purpose that comes off as a statement piece.  If this is an indication of what’s to come for ChurchCough, I’m doubling down on my seat for this ride.

Quiet Storm :: ChurchCough Enters The Game

San Marcos has always been a nurturing haven for creative souls, and over the years, the city has really seemed to fall into one of the best creative strides it has ever been in.  Many, many groups are arriving on what has become a scene in flux, and yet, these groups are still finding inspiration and ways to thrive.  ChurchCough, made up of members ConductHer and NonsenseSpence, is one of the latest to arrive, and their ambient sound is a breath of fresh air on a scene heavy with rock, hip hop and electronic music.  I am looking forward to hearing more from them, but for now, this self-titled debut project will hold me over just fine.
