Gloom Balloon-“Brush My Teeth” Video Premiere

The third (and possibly last) Gloom Balloon album came out a while ago. Patrick Tape-Fleming made videos for all the songs, so he’s sitting on some great stuff and I’m relieving him of another great clip. Previously I premiered the video for “Alone In My Head,” which featured the singer spinning on a merry-go-round. “Brush My Teeth” does not show Patrick at all; instead it … Continue reading Gloom Balloon-“Brush My Teeth” Video Premiere

Interview With The Zombies’ Colin Blunstone

He’s almost as kind as he is talented, which is saying … Continue reading Christopher The Conquered-I’m Giving Up On Rock & Roll

H.D. Harmsen-Song For Judy (Video Premiere)

Early this morning I got an email from H.D. Harmsen asking if I’d like to premiere his video for “Song For Judy.” His album had it’s debut on Paste Magazine’s website. A step down today, for sure, but I’m thrilled that he asked me. If you don’t know Harmsen, he had his hand in a couple of my favorite albums last year. His own release … Continue reading H.D.
