Magnus The Magnus feat. Seinabo Sey: Keep on Lovin’
Composer/producer Magnus The Magnus (aka Magnus Lidehäll) teamed up with fellow Swede Seinabo Sey for “Keep On Lovin'” and it’s an unexpected, dynamically-layered track. Sey’s lush vocals morph into a chopped-up and pitch-altered version—which hints at her natural, soulful voice in brief glimpses. A bit of a deep cut, the song proves Sey and Lidehäll’s partnership (he produced her record Pretend) remains wildly successful.
While most who tuned into the Twin Peaks’ season three premiere were perhaps elated by the new Angelo Badalamenti scoring, a musical performance that closed out the spectacle delivered a very different sort of Lynchian experience. Portland’s Chromatics played their 2015 track “Shadow” for those at the Bang Bang Club. They followed this up with an official video for “Shadow,” where they perform in front of the Black Lodge’s billowing red curtains.
Lion Babe: Hit the Ceiling
With a summertime swagger and brightness, Lion Babe’s latest—”Hit the Ceiling”—is about staying up and being involved. Singer Jillian Harvey’s soulful vocals emphatically soar while producer Astrow Raw brings nothing but positive vibes. This is their second non-album single of the year, with more hopefully on the horizon.
Elton John: Bennie and the Jets
Musical legend Elton John just released three new videos for three old, iconic songs. An animation for “Rocket Man,” a road trip-themed “Tiny Dancer,” and our favorite “Bennie and the Jets.” Made by Jack Whiteley and Laura Brownhill, the video is a black and white short film, in which fashion meets sci-fi and gorgeous choreography. It’s a daring take on a classic tune.
