Silversun Pickups had their record release party for Better Nature at Fingerprints Music in Long Beach, CA. Brian and Nikki performed an acoustic set that included: “Nightlight”, “Circadian Rhythm”, “Panic Switch”, “Latchkey Kids”, “Kissing Families”, “The Pit”, “Lazy Eye”, and “Growing Old is Getting Old.” The two would introduce songs, exchange banter, tell stories and Brian disappeared once mid-song to get some beer.
The store was packed and every single fan was mesmerized with the duo. Afterwards, the entire band was on hand to sign records for everyone in attendance. They chatted up with fans and were delighted to meet everyone in line.
The event was a nice treat to introduce the new album and a rare opportunity to spend some time with the band. The atmosphere was chill and welcoming, exactly like SSPU.
LA-based, rock group Moshav dropped their new music video for their single, “World on Fire” featuring none other than the amazing, Matisyahu.The track is awesome and has a great video that showcases the song’s important message of kindness. Check it out above.
The American-Israeli band will be releasing their album, New Sun Rising later this year and it promises to be a mix of alternative rock, reggae, funk and folk all rolled into one.
I find myself always looking forward to the next track that Meg Myers releases. She just knows how to make a song truly artistic. Meg teamed up again with producer Dr. Rosen Rosen (power duo!) for “Heart Heart Head” and unsurprisingly it is fantastic. Her songs generally have that edgy sound to them, but yet she manages to add a new spin to each one that makes them entirely different. That’s talent for you. The music video is pretty cool as well and the craziness in the end is just awesome. Check it out above and share it…it’s too good not to.
