Rising Sounds :: Mélat’s ‘No Bad News’ Video Hits The Internet

Mélat, the Austin-based self-proclaimed ‘eccentric soul of R&B’, has recently released a stunning music video for No Bad News, the final track from her latest album MéVen.  The song is a beautifully presented inspirational statement on chasing your dreams regardless of obstacles, and the video compliments this sentiment brilliantly.  Mélat is continuously shown as a strong, centering force throughout the video, and the literal demons used to represent the evils and shortcomings of the world contrast her brightness perfectly.  The track, produced by The SevenTH, gives me Portishead feels in the best ways.  Being introduced to her music last night at the live version of The Hot Conversation was a pleasant surprise, and I look forward to seeing her continue to excel in Austin music scene and beyond.

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.
