Another episode of Bongo Boy TV’s Indie Music From Around The World is here. Another great collection of videos that rock.

Radio Drive, featuring Kevin Gullickson are back for another week with ‘A Taste Of Heaven‘.  This band from The United States song combines a strong melody, sweet riffs and a 1980’s feel. Add to that some great visuals, and you have one dynamite video. http://www.radio-drive.com/ A German entry, Hella Donna, featuring None Like Joshua (NLJ), the American rapper, offer ‘Gimme Lights, Camera, Action‘. An interesting fusion of elctro-pop and hip hop  showcases this woman’s great voice, and some wonderful video techniques. http://www.helladonna.com/  An English entry, ‘Hard Heart‘ from Sharp Practise, is a wonderful blues song, with a video appropriately shot in black & white. There are way cool special effects, nice transitions, and some cool keyboards. http://www.sharppractise.com/  Another American entry, Rob Rise On Belief, gives us ‘The Chosen One‘, is an amazingly interesting video. There is acoustic guitar, and dynamite vocals, that kicks into a way cool rock tune, with great guitar and wonderful harmonies. An incredibly powerful song. http://www.robriseonbelief.com/   Also from the United States, Saydah with ‘Bound2Break‘, shows how to make a great music video. Amazing vocals, great piano, and some very cool synthesized horns, filmed in black & white. The minimal instrumentation keeps the focus on this woman’s voice, as it should be. http://www.saydahzufilms.com/  Chand K Nova, delivers ‘Solar Bliss‘ all the way from England. This is a way cool animated video, set amid an instrumental that showcases amazing guitar. All in all, way cool.http://www.reverbnation.com/chandknova

Added to this episode, you lucky viewers, is a sample of Jana Peri’s “Ballerina Of The Bowery“, featuring clips of Jana, Gar Francis, and Kurt Reil, and a drop in spot by Bruce Ferguson of The Easy Outs. What else can I say. The show rocks.

BONGO BOY TV-Indie Music From Around The World-Episode 1030

I felt quite honored when Bongo Boy TV asked me to preview each episode of their Music Videos From Around The World show, and to write a few lines about what I had seen & heard. Rozii Chaos an English entry packs a solid song into a cool, glossy video. “The Beginning Of The End” , a power-pop track with rock instrumentation, has an unforgettable hook. The visuals are dynamite, I mean, there’s not much better than a leather clad woman playing guitar! This is just plain sexy as hell. “Slow It Down“, a U.S.A. entry by The Wild Fruit, is a great rock-blues tune with great vocals and some very cool changes in tempo. The video cuts in and out of footage of the band playing in what appears to be a Louisiana swamp. Americana is captured by the ever present white Camero, and the female drummer may just be sexier than a female guitarist. Way cool. There can’t be a representation of American music without the inclusion of Hip Hop. B Bless ft. The Gipht provide “She’s Looking Good“. With its great vocal effects, and special visual effects, this video is surprisingly entertaining.. Secret Wish, an entry from Belgium offers “Ivory Tower“. A keyboard centered sound helps to create a video filled with young women swaying and dancing to a 1980’s electronic pop song. Wonderful to look at and an interesting listen. A Canadian entry, Blow Flyy,  gives us “My Wings Will Take Me“. The black & white footage presents a wonderful backdrop for the electronic effects of this Hip Hop song. With some visual Film Noire elements, this is fun to watch. Radio Drive, ft. Kevin Gullickson submitted “New Direction“.The fast pace of the video edits is great amid the slower feel of the song, which by the way, has me thinking somewhere between Chris Issak and Chris DeBurgh. The drumming is exceptional, and the lead guitar made this song memorable. Another American entry, Joey Evans‘ “Blue Skies Ahead“, is a cool country-pop song, playing amid quick edits of this singer-guitarist in various guises-cowboy, folk artist & mod rocker, standing in locations befitting his various incarnations. There are way cool transitions into and out of a drum & hand clapping break. The lead guitar work is dynamite, and the bright red Rickenbacker is very cool. Well, There you have it. Check this show out. The songs are good, and the videos are creative & interesting.
