New Music Video: "The Waking World" (Feat. I Break Horses) - Lushlife + CSLSX

Philly emcee/producer Lushlife, fresh off the release of his new album Ritualize (Western Vinyl), has a new hazy video for "The Waking World," his collaborative effort with CSLSX and Swedish shoegazers I Break Horses. It features a montage of vintage clips with the occasional Lushlife silhouette overlay and choice words from his rhymes. The video - mostly still frames and quick edits - is about as wide-ranging as the present influences on his latest record. While vast, the clip choices are far from random - each one either directly or indirectly referring to his lyrics. The bleary, dynamic footage is contrasted by Lush’s sharp-as-a-tack rhymes and stone-cold flow.

Austin's Most Exciting New Hip-Hop Act The Bishops Releases First Music Video

Damn, those Bishops are some hip-ass, musical-ass, Austin-ass kids. We showed you their stellar chilled out (but brained up) debut track ‘Blood Ring’ a few weeks ago, and dang if the trio hasn’t gone and put a nice video to the music already. In it we see the three family members strolling with confidence, and some real fine clothing, through Austin’s streets, most particularly in a striking scene going down the middle of the iconic 183 underpass. These kids are solid from the beats to the look to the way they step toward the ever-receding camera with understated assuredness in their own abilities, and this is likely be the first of many glimpses of these three faces of the future of Austin hip-hop that the city will get. Be one of the first on this good, good shit by taking a look below, and follow The Bishops at their FB page for more as this triad of dangerously talented kin release it.


The Last Artful, Dodgr drops first music video

A good beat and some sick rhymes. When the search for a banger becomes a more arduous task than need be, these two key elements can make or break a song. Thankfully, The Last Artful, Dodgr isn't green to what makes a hot track. Pigeons and Planes premiered the first release she's had since the Fracture's EP this past Tuesday. "Squadron" also happens to be The Last Artful, Dodgr's first music video. Her raspy tone hijacks Australian producer WNTD's beat in this nod to your #squad, but the whole package is one worthy of playing on repeat. It's the most fire two minutes you'll hear today, and the video will make you want to roll one up.

Interesting tunes coming from this Toronto group Two-Bit. Experimental jazz hip hop may have an odd ring to it but these fellas have some really cool vibes going. Really nice hip hop beats with tripped out vocal samples mixed in. Their tracks have an atmospheric element to it that could make you lose direction. You might fall asleep listening to them but you'll have THE most intense dreams. There appears to be a bit of a mystery surrounding this group Two-Bit. One way to figure it all out is by seeing them LIVE at the Central on Saturday. Wine Lips and Hold'Em also set to appear. - Kris Gies


OTC3 Doesn't Want to Fight, But They Will In New Political Video for "Black Rose"

You’ve probably noticed, but shit is damn weird out there in America these days. In the midst of all the violence, oppression and division comes new Austin hip-hop act OTC3 (Out There Conscious Commercial Concepts) with a deeply striking new music video calling for us all to band together and fight the evils in this modern world. Called “Black Rose,” this video is striking both visually and mentally, pairing a gorgeous high contrast look of all blacks and whites with a high concept message of people of all colors- black, white, brown and everything else there is- joining in solidarity against oppression and injustice. “We don’t want to fight/We will, we will, we will” sings featured artist and soulstress Tree G in the song’s hook, which plays over the rooted, heartfelt reggae bass that is the track’s backbone. It’s just some good come together music with a nice 90s hip-hop style “talking straight to the viewer,” up in the camera approach, plus some nice interpretive dancing and a very fun little funksoul part at the end. It looks like they filmed that part right out in the middle of a downtown street, and much of the rest on the steps of the Texas State Capitol itself, lending an immediacy of place and a further edge to an already powerful video. It’s heady, it’s good soulful shit, and it bodes well for this trio that just came together themselves last year. We look forward to seeing more from OTC3, and we stand with them in their mission of solidarity and change for the good of all people. Check it below.
