Mic Capes Celebrates Black History Month with "Black Pearls"

Celebrating blackness is something that should happen year round and for those of us that fall under that racial designation, it does. But as far as the rest of society is concerned, February is the one month to give the most recognition. For Mic Capes, this is part of his identity, but in the spirit of Black History Month he's dropped a new video for his track "Black Pearls."

"Black Pearls" comes off Mic Capes' debut LP, summer 2016's Concrete Dreams. It starts out with a spoken word feature from Lauren Steele, before breaking into grooves permeated with R&B as Capes and singer Aaron O'Brian Smith play lyrically and vocally. The actual video itself doesn't feature Lauren Steele, but subs in visuals of model Teresa Patterson mouthing lines from the poem while surrounded by a waterfalls, rocks and gorgeous greenery. Other shots include a black mother feeding her children, an appreciation of different black hair and fashion styles, a little girl blowing bubbles and a variety of black women smiling, giving the video an overall jovial air toward black culture.

Though Black History Month is coming to its close, our celebration never stops. Watch the video for "Black Pearls" below, and catch Mic Capes perform next at a Soul'd Out Festival-hosted show at the Wonder Ballroom with JID, EarthGang and Brown Calculus in late April. 

New Dark Blue Single Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

Caroline Rose releases "Loner" LP + plays Rough Trade on 04.03

New York-based songwriter Caroline Rose has reinvented her sound on her sophomore LP Loner. Dawning an ironically sporty aesthetic, Rose delivers poignant tales of loneliness and disillusionment with a cigarette in hand. Contrasting the americana sensibilities of 2014’s I Will Not Be Afraid, Loner combines elements of 70s punk and straight ahead pop. She's heading to Austin for SXSW, and will be back in NYC to play Rough Trade on April 3rd. - Charley Ruddell
