New Music Video: “The One Moment” by Ok Go

Ok Go became an internet sensation with unique and interesting music videos, dating back to the 2006 sensation “Here It Goes Again” featuring the band dancing between treadmills.

Over the years the band has released more creative music videos, such as “Needing/Getting” and “I Won’t Let You Down”.

Well, they have released another great music video yet again for the song “The One Moment”. The music video features 4.2 seconds of pure madness…which is then put in slow-mo to match the speed and rhythm of the song.

The creativeness of Ok Go never ceases to amaze me. Each video is so unique and entertaining. Ok Go is proving that music videos are not dead, they are still a great expression of art.

The band and music video are supportive of the company Morton Salt’s #WalkWithHer campaign promoting people that make a positive difference in the world.

Give It Back to You- The Record Company

Need some good old-fashioned bluesy rock’n’roll in your life these days? Look no further than the L.A. band The Record Company. Their debut album, Give It Back to You, has just about everything you would look for in the blues. Deep, heavy and a whole lot of attitude.

Listen to these boys, you would never guess that a three-piece band could make so much noise. But with the amount of talent that bassist Los Feliz jams with, the gusto of drummer Marc Cazorla, and versatility of lead man Chris Vos, it a surprise they don’t make more. Their sound carries that grungy soulful rock-blues sound, easy to move to and sing along with. This album will have you singing, screaming and dancing. You may blow out a few headphones or speakers listening to this album as the only way to enjoy their sound is a full volume.

I had the pleasure of seeing them perform at the Outside the Box music festival in Boston and they know how to put on a performance. They are currently on tour for the summer, and will be returning to Boston in October for a show. Highly recommend checking them out when they return to town.

 

Jam of the Day: Anchored at Sea by Act As If

Anchored at Sea is a rock song by Los Angeles based an indie rock band Act As If. Anchored at Sea was featured on the band’s 2014 album “Steady”.

This song captures emotion, has a great melody, and passionate vocals. Both singers on the track, Peter Verdell and Sara Lindsay, do a fantastic job and there voices blend together beautifully. The track build up for most of the song, but then finishes with the calming vocals of Sara Lindsay.

This song would be a great song to have at a wedding; it is very well written, while being beautiful and relaxing at the same time.

 

Filthy Man by Least of These

‘Flithy Man’ is a song about a man looking back on when he became a Christian; the stubbornness, and pain that came along with that.

The man clearly had some internal conflict, with wanting to do things on his own, but feels God is calling him to live another way. The song ends with the man recognizing that he is a filthy man, but also understands that the cross redeems him from that.

This song really captures an emotion for me. You can sense the internal conflict, of the man wanting to follow God, but at the same time pushing God away. I know it is a conflict I have experienced in the past, and many people probably have as well.
