Loi Loi – Sliver Light

Saturday night is going to be here before you know it, so now’s the time to brush up on Loi Loi before her album release show Saturday night at Comet Ping Pong. “Sliver Light” is the second music video from the recently released Me Dystopia on Blight Records, another glitzy narrative from director Jen Meller. Alexys Forrest of Danger Sluts, Krystal Ashley of “Scenes from Backstage”, Jax Caruso of The Galaxy Electric, and Freddie Heinemann of Fisk co-star in this tale of four women ditching unappreciative partners for a psychedelic dance party. Loi Loi’s seductive, retro-futuristic synthpop hits the stage and packs the dance floor Saturday night, with opening sets from Born Dad and Light Beams.

Loi Loi – Egipto

We kicked off this week’s Hometown Sounds podcast with the super-dancey lead-off track from Loi Loi‘s brand new album Me Dystopia on Blight Records. To experience more of the depth and range of this accomplished release, watch the music video for the album’s first advance single “Egipto”. Directed by Jen Meller, “Egipto” sees singer Kristie Di Lascio revel in sparkly sensuality, accompanied by Luna Honey’s baritone sax player Madeline Billhimer and Pedram Rahmatabadi as statues transformed by Di Lascio’s magical alchemy. Listen to this song late at night, with someone special, and you too will be transformed. Mark your calendar for Loi Loi’s album release show Saturday March 16th at Comet Ping Pong with Born Dad and Light Beams.

Br’er – Help Me Live

In addition to helming the growing yet very tightly-knit Blight Records empire, Ben Schurr also creates innovative work under the handle Br’er. His newest music video “Help Me Live” dropped earlier this week, coming from last year’s iconic release BRUNCH IS FOR A​$​$​HOLES. Shot by Renee Regan, Ben Usie and Zak Forrest, the vid presents Schurr’s vividly lit face referencing both hospital life support and edgy kink. You can and should see Ben performing as part of trip-hop flavored label-mates Luna Honey at their album release show Friday night at Hole in the Sky.

Blacklodge + em.g – Unknown

Did you ever play around with the iTunes Visualizer? Back in the day, before we all gave up managing messy libraries of MP3s in favor of all-you-can-eat streaming, Apple’s flagship desktop music app contained a cool feature to generate trippy video controlled by the audio. I much preferred watching that to angry pundits or reality shows. Modular synth devotee Blacklodge (not so secretly DCDIT’s Alex Tebeleff) and vocal collaborator em.g (Margaret Gilmore) expand on that tradition with the new music video for “Unknown”, the long finish of their recent EP Will You Be Reduced from Blight Records. Baltimore based electro-acoustic composer Rob Neubauer delivers some remarkable abstract visuals that deserve viewing on a large screen TV. Blacklodge + em.g open for Kelly Lee Owens at Union Stage this Sunday night.

Loi Loi – You May Be

The title of Loi Loi‘s debut EP Viva La Vulva came from a pithy sign spied by singer Kristie Di Lascio at last year’s Women’s March in DC. The release of the EP’s third music video for “You May Be” displays impeccable timing as the #MeToo campaign evolves and the second annual Women’s March swept social media this past weekend. The song’s production drips with vintage late 80s goth-y synthpop from Depeche Mode and early Nine Inch Nails, while the video from Blight Records visual director Jen Meller casts Kate Ida and beloved DC expat Seán Barna in a blood red subterranean club full of tension and furtive looks. Someone resurrect MTV’s 120 Minutes again and get this video on it.
