Shooting Down Asteroids – Drown

Shooting Down Asteroids is very worried about our planet. The indie rock band initially formed in 2015 around singer-songwriter Carlos Martin Vizcarra and now includes a full lineup of guitars, bass and drums. Their name is clearly a reference to the somewhat maligned 1998 Michael Bay film Armageddon, which is still enshrined in the venerable Criterion Collection as a lauded classic. Their debut album Fine. Well​.​.​., entirely performed and recorded by Vizcarra, came out back in late 2015, but their new music video for the climate change theme song “Drown” is up to date with copyright-free footage from our government agencies NASA and NOAA and many pointed jabs at science-denying elected officials. Confrontational protest music like this is just what 2017 needs most.


Kirbie – Human

Kirbie Rose Parker showcases humble compassion and her sparkly style in “Human”, the first single from her just-released album Melon Soup. The music video, shot around the under-loved Rosslyn neighborhood in Arlington, embodies the sympathy Kirbie inspires with her lyrics, while a smooth groove flavored with soul and jazz propels the song along. This young singer-songwriter is one to watch!


Kingpen Slim – Disconnected

DMV rapper Kingpen Slim just won’t take the hint in his new music video for “Disconnected”, a bonus track from the Deluxe Edition of his most recent full length album Life After Doubt. Slim’s dark tale of lust that won’t let go is visualized by director Jay Gregory with help from Kacey Williams, singer for DC go-go band Black Alley.
