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:
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.

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?
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!
