Kill Lincoln – Ignorance Is Bliss

Congrats and happy album release day to Can’t Complain, the first full length from ska legends Kill Lincoln in 7 years. “Ignorance Is Bliss” is the album’s first music video, and it accurately reflects the social distance we all must practice. The original idea for the video involved a “giant dance party with all our friends”, but KL still made a fantastic, energetic vid thanks to the high jumps of dedicated hypeman Drew Skibitsky. Tune in at 8 PM tonight for the live listening party!

BONUS! Kill Lincoln also recently posted two live videos from Tokyo and Fest 18, and now we miss live music more than ever.

Cecily – Clumsy

Back in June we were honored to hand off our #DCmusic podcast to two fantastic hometown musicians of color, rapper Ardamus and soulful R&B singer Cecily for cool dialogue and song picks. Since then Cecily debuted the music video for “Clumsy” on no less than BET. The video is sensual and emotional, with director Torell Shavone beautifully showcasing Cecily and her video co-stars. “Clumsy” is the first single from Awakening Pt. 1, Cecily’s 2019 EP she describes as “the story of my awakening to Love – of learning to work on myself so I don’t unintentionally hurt my loved ones, of learning to forgive myself so I can love myself without condition, of surrendering to the beautiful flow of love in my life. These are stories of learning how to choose trust, patience, compassion, honesty, and kindness. These are stories of choosing love over fear, and I hope these songs serve as a reminder to you to do the same.”

Clones of Clones – Mine

Indie rock band Clones of Clones was already a studio-only band well before the 2020 lockdown, so no release shows were canceled in the run up to their new EP Super Available that dropped July 10th. Instead, CoC often delivers insanely pretty visuals for their music videos, as is the case for the EP’s first single “Mine”. Animator Tezo Don Lee, originally from South Korea and now residing in London, applies the soft tenor of singer Ben Payes to a lipsticked, neon-haired lounge singer in surprising, seductive style.
