January 11, 2013

We’re not done with the best videos of 2012, but we needed to take a break to highlight the new videos of 2013 so we don’t fall behind. Some sad news, it was just announced K from Pay money To my Pain passed away on December 30. You will be missed!

Keishi Tanaka- “Wonderful Seasons”

Keishi Tanaka has kept busy since his band Riddim Saunter broke up in 2011, releasing a solo EP and an album as part of the supergroup The Dekits last year. Now Tanaka is ready to release his debut solo album. “Wonderful Seasons” is a happy little song celebrating the little things in life.

I hope you all had a pleasant Thanksgiving.

the HIATUS- “Deerhounds”

The HIATUS are back from their hiatus with this Where the Wild Thing Are inspired video. I’m actually surprised how much I like this song. Must be the underlying flutes.
