Video Of The Month: “Overdose” By The Good Fortune

We love the NPR Tiny Desk Concert Series, which has produced a whole bunch of great live, stripped-down performances, captured in the NPR studio. They’ve introduced dozens of new and emerging artists to the masses (well, the NPR-listening masses anyway), ourselves included. A nice by-product of the Tiny Desk Concerts came about when NPR put out a call last year for submissions from independent artists for a chance to be part of the series. We’re not sure how many submissions came in, but we’ve come across several great ones from OurStage artists in recent months, including this one, which just made the Top 20 in our Video channel last month. It’s by Roseville, California’s The Good Fortune, and it’s a stunningly great performance, with equally excellent production. It’s different enough from the studio version of the song to make for enjoyable side-by-side listening. It’s our video of the month and can be seen featured on the homepage, as well as…right here:

Pre-order Late Cambrian’s New Album

Look, I think we’ve been very clear that New York’s Late Cambrian has been doing damn good things, so let’s get to the point. It’s been about three years since the release of their last full length, Golden Time, and since then, the band has morphed considerably from a catchy guitar rock band to a lean electro pop duo, who have released a series of carefully crafted singles and videos in the interim. Now, finally, Late Cambrian is readying the release of their new LP, Sweet Cambrian High, Vol. I & II. It’s available for pre-order now as part of a PledgeMusic campaign, and will be released on CD, cassette, and limited edition colored vinyl. So, if you like unique, infectious, and clever music – and we know you do – get to it now.

Chris Fields’ “Crown” Video

Though Chris Fields‘ single “Crown” dropped over a year ago, the Brooklyn MC has given it a new life with a brand new video, released June 1. The song, which first hooked us with “a simple but menacing horn sample, with an even more intense chorus,” certainly deserves to be heard by a wider audience. Hopefully the new video helps toward that end. “Crown” is from Fields’ LP Dreams Are Forever. Get it at www.cdotfields.com.

Yonas Returns With “You F#cked Up” Single And Video

Get ready; Bronx rapper Yonas is back at it with a new single and video, with more on deck. The latest is “You F#cked Up,” a head nodding, mid-tempo jam that sits alongside his best singles. The video − another successful collaboration with director Mike Squires − depicts a torrid affair with a be-wigged mannequin. Watch it below. The new single is part of Yonas’ #SummerMonDaze series, which portends a solid summer of new music.

NSFW, obv.
