a2611407190_10

After much anticipation and a top notch single/video rollout, Protextor and Brother Bear have dropped American Neon on us lucky listeners.  I have not yet had a chance to listen, but when it’s getting props like this via the Bandcamp listenership, I can trust that it will be well worth the time it takes to give it the listen(s) it will deserve:

Boogie Nights :: Protextor And Brother Bear’s ‘Not Tonight’ Video Arrives

In anticipation of the American Neon release, partners in crime Protextor and Brother Bear decided to drop a highly entertaining and visually stimulating music video.  Protextor already has a handful of admirable videos under his belt, and with the slight shift in sound direction this upcoming project is taking, it seems fitting that the video for Not Tonight should take on a heightened sense as well.  Director Zack Scott managed to take the familiar confines of Spiderhouse Ballroom and turn it into a glam-style roller disco ready to be rocked out.  Protextor and Brother Bear ooze charisma, and the cast of characters employed to make up the world of the video are perfectly placed.  This one will stick around with you for a while.  As a bonus, the crew even threw in a quick behind the scenes video!  Check them both out, throw some likes and shares around, and always support local.

Sound Expansion :: Protextor Spreads His Wings On ‘Not Tonight!’

Falling into the trap of expectations will more than often leave you far behind the curve.  Sometimes, even as a blogger and a listener, you think that you know what an artists’ new song will sound like before you’ve hit play for the first time.  Every once in a while, however, expectations are blown out of the water.  It was nice to check out Protextor‘s new single, Not Tonight!, and walk away with that ‘what the hell just happened?’ feeling.  In no way, shape or fun was I prepared for the amount of fun this song was.  Protextor completely owns his Robbie Williams‘esque persona on the majority of the song, while sprinkling a few bars on the back-end.  Brother Bear throws in some assistance on this track as well, and now I have no idea what to expect from the upcoming album American Neon… isn’t that honestly the best way to anticipate an album?

Small World :: The VelociRapTour Hits Disneyland

Austin-based crew Space Camp Death Squad (Protextor and Secret Levels) recently embarked on the wonderfully named VelociRapTour, and as anyone who has ever been on tour knows, things get interesting and wild.  Luckily, the fellas decided to document what had to be one of the better stops, DisneyLand.  The result is a wonderfully entertaining video in the happiest place on Earth.  Props to the fellas for bringing some culture to the grounds.  Enjoy!

Quality Time :: Protextor’s ‘Marks’ Video

Protextor‘s Shift album has been a wellspring of creative videos (in addition to the wonderful music).  One of the videos that I have been wanting to share is Marks, but with its adult content, it has been a bit of a process determining the best way to share.  In the end, I have decided that clicking the picture is the best option, as it will take you to the extremely sensual and provocative video (directed by Protextor, featuring production from Mikulak).  Enjoy, and if you’re watching at work, keep an eye over your shoulder!

Topic Roulette :: …&More… Stop By ‘The Hot Conversation’ Podcast

OVRLD‘s The Hot Conversation podcast is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite podcasts out there, local or otherwise.  The latest episode contains almost the perfect storm of ingredients and topics : Protextor and JRo (as per usual), Scuare and no1mportant (…&more…), and topics ranging from DVD rot to racism in the Star Wars universe to Star Trek color shirt significance to sexy Prince posters, and all kinds of fun stops in between.  This had me laughing so hard at work, I had to make sure to keep the laughs down.  Great stuff.
