Spoonboy – Great Mistake Maker video

Singer David Combs splits his prodigious creative energies between well known DIY pop-punk group The Max Levine Ensemble and his solo moniker Spoonboy. His musical output in 2014 consisted of collaborative split releases with Philadelphia’s The Goodbye Party and UK bands Martha and Color Me Wednesday. Spoonboy’s prepping for a February UK tour by releasing a new music video for “Great Mistake Maker”, a feel-good pop song with a positive message from the split 7″ with The Goodbye Party. It’s ok if you can’t resist the urge to dance when watching this video. Catch the reunited Max Levine Ensemble this Saturday at Positive Force’s Net Neutrality benefit show this Saturday at St. Stephen’s Church with The Black Sparks, The Rememberables and Philly’s Radiator Hospital.



Here’s another great video we missed during the winter break. You all know that electronic pop outfit Astra Via is Jarrett Nicolay from Virginia Coalition and Olivia Mancini from her Mates, right? Right! Late last year they released a 3 song EP called SUPERBESTLUCKYSONGS and made music videos for each song. But instead of releasing them separately, why not stitch them together in one epic twelve minute long melange? Watch Astra Via’s goofy and lovable videos for “Good On You”, “And It Tried To Rain” and “Action Junky”, then buy the EP from Aerobic International.

Winter break is over, 2015 is here and it’s time to get back to the daily grind of making sure you all don’t miss these top notch DC music videos. Today’s video comes from dub funk rockers See-I, still holding down their long running Wednesday night residency at Eighteenth Street Lounge.

Yes please.
