READ — Bedouine in the Los Angeles Times

August 31st, 2017

“She sat at a window in her whiskey phase, writing songs and blowing smoke over Sunset Boulevard, listening to the rattle of buses, the whispers of passersby, and the way the night moved in spectral cadences that made the wanderer in her feel alive and alone in the latest city she called home.

When the noises grew too loud, which they often did, Azniv Korkejian escaped into a closet with a guitar. She sang and recorded on an iPhone, sketching sparse and intimate meditations on love and the things you gather, the pieces you leave behind. She took on the name Bedouine, a fitting alias for an Armenian born in Syria, who is at once a minimalist nomad and a musician in search of the stillness between notes.

Her acclaimed debut album, “Bedouine,” is an arresting mix of country funk and ’60s folk that moves in timeless meandering often accompanied by string and horn arrangements. The songs have a destination but the journey is a soft circuitry of words and phrasings that at their best evoke the imagery of Leonard Cohen and Carole King with the lingering mournfulness of Nick Drake.”

LISTEN – DJDS ft. Khalid & Empress Of “Why Don’t You Come On”

August 29th, 2017

DJDS (Sam Griesemer and Jerome Potter), the Grammy nominated duo, just dropped a new single for “Why Don’t you Come On.” It features 2017’s MTV Video Music Award’s Best New Artist Khalid and Empress Of.

On “Why Don’t You Come On” DJDS says, “We had a rough idea for this song for a long time, but it didn’t really go anywhere until we met Empress Of and she started writing to it. We can’t say it enough, Lorely really gave this song life. It wasn’t going anywhere without her. We were also working on Khalid’s album at the time, so we played it for him and he decided he wanted to get on it too. He cut his part and it sounded amazing to us. Right now we’re trying to make music and collaborations exist that we’ve always wanted to hear, and it was a dream to put these two together. Happy it worked.”

WATCH — Grieves’ “What It Dew” + Tour Dates

August 24th, 2017

In anticipation of his fifth studio album Running Wild set for release Friday, August 25th on Rhymesayers Entertainment, Seattle rapper and producer Grieves shared a new video for “What It Dew.” Directed by HELICAL, the video pokes fun at his more serious subject matter, laid over electric guitar textures, pulsating beats, and an insistent bassline.

In the video, Grieves finds himself trapped in purgatory – forced to entertain a crummy dive bar in perpetuity where the patrons appear to be the living embodiments of our vices, the seven deadly sins. Ultimately, we see Grieves make a good time out of a bad situation. He comments, “ Not everything is a crisis. Some things are simple and easy. Feel good and let go with this one!”

WATCH – The Weather Station’s “Thirty”

August 24th, 2017

Toronto folk/rock musician Tamara Lindeman going by the name of The Weather Station released a new video this week via THE FADER for the song “Thirty.” The video features The Weather Station, performing alone before a dozen unimpressed men. “The song is (in part) about feeling loved and rejected at the same time,” she told The FADER. “Which is directly analogous to the experience of being under the male gaze — and also to being on television. So we staged a fake television show, with a male audience … Would it feel uncomfortable? Who would you side with, when you watched?”
