BabyJake – Bread & Butter (Official Visualizer) (Video)

Today, singer, songwriter BabyJake drops his highly-anticipated debut EP, Don’t give me problems, give me wine—listen HERE!
https://babyjake.lnk.to/DGMPGMWPR
The seven-song genre-blurring EP includes his latest single, “Head In The Clouds,” out now.

Don’t give me problems, give me wine jumps from exuberant pop to moody sunset-slicked folk. The EP features BabyJake’s breakout songs, “Confidant,” “Blue Cellophane” and “MadHappySad,” alongside four new tracks, “Head In The Clouds,” “(Consumption)(Addiction),” “Bread & Butter” and “Anywhere,” which are each accompanied by unique and compelling visuals shot by Alex Hall.

Of the EP, BabyJake says, “‘Don’t give me problems, give me wine’ is a special project for me. It’s the first time in my life I’ve really felt like the songs all make sense and have a genuine feeling. It took me awhile to figure out who I was as an artist, and this project fully embodies that,”

This past spring, BabyJake teamed up with Dillon Francis on his tracks, “You Do You” and “Touch,” which Billboard Dance praised, saying, “Florida vocalist BabyJake delivers the track’s smooth-as-silk vocals over Francis’ slinky production.” The singer, songwriter capped off 2019 with over 25 million streams across his first three singles and live performances of “Blue Cellophane” and “239” for Vevo DSCVR’s ‘Artist to Watch’ 2020 campaign, which he was 1 of 20 emerging artists selected.

More about BabyJake:
Jake Herring, the artist who records as BabyJake, has a complicated relationship with music. Growing up in Fort Meyers, Florida, Herring first picked up the guitar when he was eight years old. “My dad actually played guitar,” Herring says. “He used to sing in the Navy band and taught me ‘Smoke on the Water’ on guitar, and from there I just picked it up on YouTube and started playing.” Like a lot of other kids his age, Herring’s interest in music happened to coincide with the release and subsequent ubiquitous popularity of the Guitar Hero video game, which emphasized guitar theatrics over quieter playing. “I was listening to AC/DC…you know, all the classic records that you would hear on rock radio. I didn’t even want to be a singer. I just wanted to play guitar.”

Herring, it should be noted, is 6’ 6” and very athletic. By the time he was in high school, he was juggling a deep, somewhat private love of music with genuine enthusiasm for sports and partying with his friends. He didn’t feel like he fit in in any specific social group, and soon felt alienated. “I was just kind of sad,” he says. “I remember always feeling like I wasn’t in the right place.” For solace, Herring turned to his dad’s folk records, favoring the low-key contemplative sounds that resonated with the sense of alienation that he was feeling. “When I was in a mood, when I would feel anger or sadness, I’d go to the guitar,” he says. Though he maybe wasn’t conscious of it at the time, Herring was priming himself to be a sort of musical chameleon. Well versed in the building blocks of rock music, the intimacy of folk, and with an innate understanding of the rap and pop music he grew up around, he was constructing a well of disparate influences to draw from when he eventually made a serious go at a music career, it just took him a second to get there.

First, Herring gave college a try, thinking he’d maybe get a marketing degree while also living it up and partying. About a year in, he realized he didn’t want to be at school, and he was maybe interested in partying a little less, too. “I got depressed again, and I started playing the guitar and writing heavily, and I just fell in love with it again,” he says. He and his friends made “Bright Blue Eyes,” a song he says, “sounded really bad but got a little bit of notoriety on Soundcloud.” That song, along with one other key moment, was enough to convince him that maybe he could try to leave college and make a go at this music thing. “One of my best friends is named Aaron,” he says. “The turning point actually came from him. I was drunk one night and went to his apartment and I was playing guitar and I remember closing my eyes and jamming and then probably 30 minutes later [he was like], ‘You’re pretty good at this. You should try to do something with it.’” Herring brushed him off, but Aaron grabbed the neck of his guitar and said “No seriously. Do something, because you don’t want to be here.”

Herring dropped out of college and started writing songs as often as he could, and after narrowing down his six favorites, he convinced his dad to give him a loan so he could record them in a local Florida studio that gave him a Valentine’s Day discount. Before too long, he had his first official body of work: The Little Mess, which evolved into a multifaceted career that currently involves his own music as “BabyJake,” a record label called daycare with an added merch/streetwear line, and a budding career penning and producing songs with artists like Dillon Francis. Herring and Francis’ collaborations, the club-ready “Touch” and poolside dance gem “You Do You” both have more than five million streams combined to date.

Herring debuted as BabyJake in 2019 with his viral single “Cigarettes on Patios,” which has accumulated over 35 million streams to date. The piano-led anthem is accented by subtle snaps and booming drums that follows a night of party-hopping, but with a slightly dark edge. This theme of partying and coming down, of love and regret, of anger and frustration, is a crucial part of his music. Herring’s perceptiveness is what makes him a good songwriter and is a common theme throughout his music.

Toward the end of 2019, BabyJake was named one of VEVO DSCVR’s Artists To Watch 2020, and now he is preparing to release his debut EP, Don’t give me problems, give me wine, a seven song collection that jumps from exuberant pop to moody sunset-slicked folk, and even includes a psychedelic digression on substance abuse. The EP opens with “Blue Cellophane,” as Herring meditates on loneliness, addiction, and the pitfalls of giving yourself over to another human over a warm guitar stomp that evokes dimly lit blues halls, and a country swing that is present in so much of the music of the ’70s that he loves. Elsewhere, on “MadHappySad,” Herring combines disparate influences—think Kanye circa 808s and Heartbreaks by way of vintage Police—to create a modern, tense reggae inflected breakup jam. While on the bouncy, jangly “Head in the Clouds,” he explores the hidden weight of emotional escape, juxtaposing bright guitarwork against moody lyrics about self-defeat and the pitfalls of depression and avoidance. “Confidant,” (over 3.5 million Spotify streams to date), on the other hand, is about navigating the knotty feeling of bitterness that comes from being jerked around in a relationship. But on the last two songs—the one-two punch of “Bread and Butter” and the choir assisted “Anywhere”—Herring steps away from the party, slows down, draws on the warmth of lush ’70s southern rock, and the moody crawl of the folk music he grew to love to create a mature, horn-drenched suite that feels like the result of an artist older than his years, someone who has lived recklessly and loved hard and is ready to put it all on record.

bloody white – tongue tied (VHS HOME VIDEO) (Video)

VIDEO RELEASED for bloody white’s undeniably catchy, lo-fi pop/electronic single “tongue tied.”

In the lead up to his September 9 debut EP release “you’d walk right over me,” bloody white has self directed and edited a series of VHS home videos for each single, with the catchy lo-fi pop electronic song “tongue tied” being the first. Everything about bloody white is DIY, including his entire EP which was self-written, produced, performed, mixed, mastered all on his own.

bloody white is part of the new wave of fearless artists emerging with refreshing and exciting sounds. The 20 year old, self-taught singer/songwriter/producer has been crafting electronic beats since he was 11, from his bedroom.

“With a layered production of frenzied electro-tinged chords and sharp basslines, “Tongue Tied,” centers around the relatable burden of counterproductive decisions. While the chorus – “hey! hi! how’s it go? send a text and let me know,” – is wonderfully catchy and simple, a closer look at the transparent lyricism reveals the loneliness, desperation and self-destructive instincts of humanity in vivid clarity.” -Earmilk

“It was really important to me that my first videos feel real and represent the small town I’m from near Santa Barbara. They had to be true to what I grew up around and look nostalgic, too, and the most honest way I could do that was by recording with my old VHS camera I got when I was 7. My friends and I shot a lot of footage together for more than a year. Small town California is the backdrop for all the videos. I’m calling them VHS home videos because that’s what they are,” says bloody.

“tongue tied” is the first for opportunity for his early and new fans to get an inside look into his world. Since, unlike most 19-year-old’s, he has remained pretty enigmatic on social media – but this is no coincidence, as that’s his thing. bloody white’s mystique is just part of what makes him so fascinating.

José María – BODY – Track #5 from LQQK – A Visual EP in Six Parts (Video)

Picked from The New Masculinity: José Maria Debuts Provocative Visual ‘LQQK’ EP.

After a wildly successful Kickstarter residence and campaign in Fall 2019, recording and performing artist José María is ready to share their LQQK visual EP with the world. The project features six tracks that explore the concept of gender, toxic masculinity, and transformation.

José María: “Each track has its own music video where I progress from James Dean into a non-binary Mondrian,” says José. The LQQK EP takes a deep dive into society’s ideas about masculinity, turning the concept on its head.

José María : “I’ve always loved pop music. For a long time, I was scared to admit what I liked about female-driven pop and why. And then I finally asked myself: why can’t I be a pop princess? Who made the rules for how someone has to write? Think? Act? Why can’t I wear heels with my f***ing Carhart jacket while I lay a pipe? If Joan Jett could subvert and thus empower femmes and feminity, then I sure as hell can claim my sexuality and power by embracing the fullness of my non-binary identity.”

Indeed, the opening track, “EDEN,” opens with the artist sporting a rockabilly pompadour, white T-shirt with rolled-up sleeves, and black jeans – all accentuated with killer stiletto-heeled Pleaser boots. The song opens with a haunting six-part harmony before exploding into an alt rock groove set over a pounding beat.

Later tracks such as “BODY” find José in a colorful bodysuit and makeup, joined by Mãr Galeano and Ashton Muñiz. The catchy R&B-infused pop track muses on life, the future, and the inevitability of change. All of the music for the album was written by José, along with Cesar Gonzalez, Alexander Ronneburg, and Karl Ronneburg. The six part music video series was filmed by the queer femme savants at Proteo Media + Performance.

José María : “The music is earnest and sexy – stuff you shout-sing along to in your mom’s car,” José continues. “Our sound is inspired by the intersection of noise and new music with pop vocals, with SOPHIE, Tristan Perich, Meredith Monk, and Queen as references – I sing from my gut.”

It’s not José’s first foray into the intersection of music and visual art. Born in the Bronx to a working-class, Puerto Rican/Italian American family, José started singing and writing as a small child. They had entered the world of contemporary and postmodern dance at 18 when they were accepted into the NYU Tisch School of the Arts on a full ride MLK Jr. Merit Scholarship. At 21, José created their first “musical painting” that incorporated camera, dance, fashion, music, and performance to tell a universal story – and they’ve never looked back since.

José has showcased their work via YouTube, Radio City Music Hall, La MaMa ETC., NYU Tisch, and The Flea Theater. They have been featured in The Advocate , on Logo NewNowNext, and WNYC/NPR. Recent projects with artists Sam Pinkleton, Ani Taj/Dance Cartel, Meredith Monk, The B52s, YouTube’s Queer Kid Stuff, and some fabulous early covers are available online.

Command Sisters – I Like It (Video)

“‘I Like It’ takes the listener into the exact moment I realized I was falling extremely hard for someone,” says Sarah. “It was intense, scary and exhilarating all at the same time.” Charlotte adds, “When I was writing ‘I Like It,’ I was inspired by those exact relationships where falling for someone feels like jumping off a cliff…but you like it and jump anyway.”

“I Like It,” was recorded in Los Angeles by award winning producer Tim Pagnotta (Walk The Moon, Weezer, Blink 182, Neon Trees, Elle King). Shakers, a cash register sample and a groan of distortion give way to a seductive verse as the vocals flutter just above a skittering beat. Guitars kick on the hook as they confidently announce, “I’m on fire.”

The new track follows the duo’s debut single, “I Can Do What I Want To,” released in May. Watch the official video, which was personally shot, styled and directed in the band’s apartment during quarantine and filmed D.I.Y. on an iPhone.

ABOUT COMMAND SISTERS
Command Sisters—Charlotte and Sarah Command—wield the power to turn popular culture red, the color being a signature feature of a finely-crafted image. After playing together since childhood, the siblings honed on a distinct sound and style that has brought them to what you get today. Sarah drew on a lifelong love of shred gods, such as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Orianthi, as Charlotte nodded to the songcraft of Sia and The Weeknd, cultivating a sharp signature sound steeped in mind-blowing musicality and tight hooks. Their sense of style got just as loud with a crimson take on high fashion. This careful presentation turned heads. Not only did they perform across the United States and Canada, but they attracted partners such as Martin Guitars, PRS Guitars, Marshall Amps, MAC Cosmetics, and Boss/Roland, to name a few. Additionally, they cultivated a fervent social media following through consistently eye-popping posts. Mind you, they impressively did all of this without one official release. After inking a deal with 21 Entertainment, Universal Music Canada, and Republic Records, Command Sisters are primed for a bold breakthrough with their 2020 singles “I Can Do What I Want To” and “I Like It.”
