Monday Music Discovery for April 15, 2019
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, there’s new music by Flock of Pigs, Jacobi Ryan, and Mad Honey. If you’re interested in having your music video or new single highlighted, connect here.
Tiny Desk Contest Submission 2019 by Flock of Pigs
Artist Statement: Flock of Pigs is proud to present their entry into the NPR Music Tiny Desk Contest 2019!
Anchored by a dollhouse desk, this is our entry into NRP Music’s annual contest to be chosen by a panel of judges to perform in the Tiny Desk Concert Series at the NPR offices in Washington, DC.
The video showcases a blend of one of our older and newer songs. The first, “Rad City” is inspired by a house in Norman that members rented while attending OU and one of the places where the band was founded and captures the wild experiences and energy of the place. The next track features wider instrumentation as the band takes you on a smooth journey while vocalist Joe confronts feelings of heartbreak and confusion.
For sensitive audiences the video contains mild profanity and references drug use.
The video was filmed and edited by Jessica Hunt and audio was recorded by Chris Sanders.
Money in the Way by Jacobi Ryan
Artist Statement: Week 13 in my #52in365 Campaign is titled, “Money in the Way”, and it is available right now on all streaming platforms.
Money in the
Blue & You by Mad Honey
Artist Statement: MAD HONEY FINDS HOPE IN A BLUE WORLD
OKC band Mad Honey releases a dreamy music video for “Blue & You”. Combining the surrealistic style of the video with the helplessly hopeful lyrics of the song, Mad Honey creates a captivating debut video.
Directed by Emmy and VMA award-winning Blake Pickens and upcoming director Caleb Vesely, Mad Honey creates a world that matches the ethereal, dreamy tones of their song “Blue & You.” The video follows a woman looking for something she’s lost. As she conquers the obstacles in her path, she finds that what she’s looking for isn’t so far away.
The world around her is blue, a visual representation of the lyrics “if all the world remains this shade of blue, I’ll forget it all but you.” What really matters to her stands out in a deep red.
Mad Honey is just returning from a short tour through Arkansas, Nebraska, and Kansas. They are playing at the Opolis Stage at Norman Music Festival. Look for their EP coming soon.
