Shannon Hurley Looks To Belinda Carlisle For “I Found You” Video

For her new single, the wistful, ’80s-inspired “I Found You,” singer and songwriter Shannon Hurley turned to an icon of that decade, solo artist and former Go-Go’s frontwoman Belinda Carlisle. Hurley and director Matt Dinan created a shot-for-shot remake of the video for Carlisle’s hit “Mad About You,” complete with beach frolicking, Ray-Bans, convertibles, and looking great in black. You can buy the single here.

Yonas, ‘About Time’

At long last, the newest LP from YONAS, About Time. We recently previewed the first single, “All Rise,” and the rest of the album (14 tracks, including a couple of short musical interludes) is similarly intense, in contrast with some of the Bronx MC’s lighter remixes and one-off singles. On About Time, Yonas returns to the darker vibe that marked his 2013 album The Transition, supremely confident, but starkly honest, with unvarnished thoughts on the ups and downs of success, mortality, fatherhood, and building a legacy, no matter what else the work yields. Toward the end of About Time, the inclusion of some of those previous singles (“You F#cked Up,” “King of the Summer,” “Wait a Minute”) lightens the load a bit with some universal pop appeal. As usual, the production is stellar and the album just sounds great. Listen to a few tracks below, and click here for the full length.

KAZE’s “Weapon”

[UPDATE 6/29: Official video posted below] We’ve got another new track from UK band KAZE. “Weapon” is a politically charged outcry in response to the social regression, reactionary isolationism, and common violence of the last few years. Beneath this, KAZE’s music remains unpredictable and angular, with expectant rests and explosions of sound, glued together with melody and polished with clever production. It is a concerted and well-timed marriage of lyric and sound.

Video Of The Month: Kyle Bent, “Running” (feat. ANoyd)

New video of the month for you here. It’s Boston-based rapper Kyle Bent, featuring ANoyd, with “Running.” It’s a great track, with a throbbing beat and Bent’s baritone, contrasted nicely with ANoyd’s tenor flow. Check it out.
