Welcome to the Monday Music Discovery playlist where I feature a mixtape of both new music video videos and singles of all genres of music by local bands in Oklahoma. In this Monday Music Discovery, I have new songs by Jarvix, Matt Moran, and BASH. If you’re interested in having your music video or new single highlighted, connect here.

Artist Statement: In Fall of 2017, Brian Winkeler of Robot House Creative approached me about doing a parody song, and a very specific one at that. The challenge was to have fun with familiar, Oklahoma-specific advertising tropes under a deadpan reinvention of everyone’s favorite Donnie Darko tune, “Mad World.” This would then be performed live at the 2018 Addy Awards, which has a different theme and presentation for each annual gala.

After months of collaborative edits and rewrites, this is the result. I had the pleasure of debuting this live at the Bricktown Event Center on February 24, 2018. Special shout out to Digital DK’s Steve Jones for knocking this video out of the park.

This is….Adworld.

Credits: Created for the 52nd Annual Oklahoma Addy Awards, presented by the OKC Ad Club. Concept by Brian Winkeler of Robot House Creative. Written by Jarvix in collaboration with Robot House Creative. Song arranged, recorded, and performed by Jarvix. Video edited by Steve Jones of Digital DK. Based on “Mad World” by Tears for Fears as covered by Gary Jules.

Artist Statement: I recorded this on a Tascam 414 mkII four track tape machine to capture the raw creative sound I feel is often lacking in today’s digital realm.

Artist Statement: No I is the first song and video released from BASH. BASH previously went by Gabriyella and her songs can be found on SoundCloud under such. BASH showcases a new sound and style.
