Thankful Days :: Virgil Wolfe And Punk With A Camera Visually Express ‘Gratitude’

Virgil Wolfe brought the musical vision, Punk With A Camera brought what it took to capture the vision in music video form, and Rib Fest Records helped make it all possible.  The result is a testimonial style slice of life in the form of Gratitude, where we find Wolfe reflecting on all things big and small worth pointing out, because all of this shaped him into the man he is today.  Punk With A Camera helps make everything easy to relate to, keeping the environments grounded rather than forcing Wolfe to posture like someone he is not.  These are the kind of videos that both resonate good vibes and help you unlock your ability to do the same.  Give it a like, a share and a comment, and keep supporting your favorite indie creators.

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.

Scary Hours :: Cunabear Presents ‘Sidequest 01’

a1064895580_10

Virgil Wolfe has proven to be not only a man of considerable talent, but a man of good taste as well.  If he recommends a piece of music, it is definitely not meant to be taken lightly.  When he recently posted about sidequest 01, a project from Savanna, Georgia-based cunabear, I was so fascinated by the cover art that I had to listen.  Needless to say, I was not disappointed.  The music is as textured and mysterious as the album cover, and the beats take you to some very distinct places in regards of mood.  Definitely top notch work.

Stay Working :: Another One From Virgil Wolfe

There’s something about creating an album that opens up the creative and introspective floodgates.  It seems that, in the wake of Before the World Wakes Up (no pun intended), Virgil Wolfe has been consistently dropping moving and thought provoking singles.  His latest, I Wish, speaks of growing up protected by those that love you, wondering what it would be like if you knew then what you know now, but still loving those for understanding why they chose to protect you, and all in under 3 minutes time.  Virgil Wolfe is definitely doing all that he can to leave a mark on 2018, so I recommend keeping an eye and an ear out… it’s all been wonderful thus far.

Son Rising :: Virgil Wolfe Releases ‘I Can See The Day’ Single

While getting to know Virgil Wolfe both personally and as an artist, there is one aspect to him that I completely respect and enjoy : he understands the value of getting the most out of each day.  His newest single, aptly titled I Can See The Day, is a celebration of waking up with a plan on your mind and a vision of what the day will present.  The production is handled by Calamity, and it has the vibe of waking up with energy and motivation.  This one is a perfect way to start off your day and your week.

Insomniac’s Night :: Virgil Wolfe Releases ‘Before The World Wakes Up’

a2186681931_10

Not many MCs straddle the line between confidence and humility better than Virgil Wolfe.  The Baytown resident is known for dropping extremely thought provoking, and sometimes coded, lyrics in a manner so laid back that much of the information may be missed through the first listen or two.  Before The World Wakes Up is a project that revels in that realm.  A unifying double-theme of putting in work while everyone is sleeping and being ‘woke’ in the midst of the oblivious is executed masterfully.  Production duties were handled mostly by Calamity, with Virgil Wolfe handling the beatsmithing on Donahue.  This one is definitely dope, and perfectly placed in terms of release date to make me rethink my whole Best of 2017 standings for the homies.
