Moving Pictures :: The ‘Against Shadows’ Trailer Intrigues

While combing through my timeline (as ususal), I stumbled across a trailer for an upcoming dance-based film, Against Shadows.  What immediately caught my eye was the backdrop for the thumbnail : the soon to be relocated Hope Outdoor Gallery in Austin.  Upon further research, I discovered that Stephanie Patrick and team’s vision was to do 5 scenes involving 10 dancers that takes place in both Austin and San Francisco.  A second video provided a bit more insight into the project…

I will definitely be on the lookout for this one.

Warning Signs :: L.Dot And Menace Talk ‘Savage’ On New Music Video

Emcee L.Dot, representing Killeen by way of D.C., is here to make it plain and simple what he’s all about.  On the video for the latest single, SavageL.Dot and collaborator Menace trade bars about what qualifies them as savage, as well as what sets them apart from others making similar claims.  All of this is done over a banger of a beat from TroubleOnTheTrack and Dubb-Z.  CoolyFilms stepped in with the visual assist, and the final product is definitely something that stands up against the competition.  Definitely give this one a like, share and comment if you’re missing hip-hop with substance and heart from the local level.

Deep Concentration :: Lady Valore Drops Knowledge On ‘IRL’

a4280642828_10

In my quest to become the Superman of indie blogs, I think that Virgil Wolfe has become my Jimmy Olsen.  One trip through his timeline, and I manage to keep finding dopeness.  This go-round, it’s SavannahGeorgia-based Lady Valore that caught my attention.  Her latest release, IRL, did all the right things to catch my attention… dope cover, interesting song titles, and a guest appearance by another recent Virgil Wolfe discovery, cunabear.  Naturally, I decided to dive in, and I was certainly not disappointed.

Lady Valore has a very conversational style and delivery, making her come off as the underground hip-hop version of The Ancient One from Doctor Strange.  Her lines of rationale and observation are interesting and thought-provoking, and the production (the lion’s share of which is done by 5AM, with contributions by DRMAMatty MeatloafSunglow and (‘i’s’)) is abstract enough to stand out, but strong enough to support the unique flow.  For a name your price purchase, you really can’t go wrong with this one.
