Melodic Moods :: Typical Girls Releases ‘Memories Of Old Love’

Some of my favorite rock music comes from bands based out of central Texas.  It seems that something about this area pulls in artists with musical abilities, musical virtuosos with talent in multiple dramas, walking encyclopedias of music knowledge and those with a deep DIY ethos that find ways to connect and form bands.  Typical Girls has always been one of my favorites from the area, as their sound somehow manages to sound like the Austin bands I grew up with while at the same time sounding like bands from New YorkPortlandLondon and many more places that shaped my love for alternative rock and roll.  Memories of Old Love, even at just under 20 minutes, is able to take listeners on quite the emotional and sonic journey, giving us tinges of nostalgia while managing to still sound fresh and ahead of the curve.  Definitely check this one out, support if you’ve got the money to do so, and if not, stream it on your favorite streaming service and encourage others to do the same!

Stranger Things :: Jack Henry Releases Music Video For ‘Stranger’

After testing the waters a month or so ago with the release of the stranger single, Jack Henry is back at it with a wonderfully strange music video.  Directed by Izzy Gazette, the video is a fun romp through visual silliness, a stark contrast against the very solid sound Henry has created for his era-shifting single.  That being said, the video itself is a fun one, and certainly worth checking out, so give it a view, leave a like and a comment if you dig it, and share it around so that Jack Henry can become a household name.

Walking Dead :: Worm Suicide Drops Video For ‘Lead Pipe’

When it comes to being an independent band, making the most of your promotional material is a must.  Budgetary limits tend to be a bit of a constraint, but with a little creativity and ingenuity, classics can be created out of little to nothing.  In the case of Worm Suicide, they used a green screen, some patience in the editing room, and an assist from the public domain in the form of the original Night of the Living Dead, and the result is the hilarious and infectious Lead Pipe.  Check it out, give it a like and a comment if you dig it, and spread it around for others to enjoy.
