Today's Video Share: Dandelion by Just Micci

This is one of my earliest songs I wrote when I was about 15. But the idea of it still resonates with me.

Dandelions are just beautiful flowers in the wrong place. They are perceived as weeds, only to those who don't take the time to learn about their awesome super powers. So here's to all the underestimated and beautiful weeds in this world. You are loved. <3

Today's Video Share: Dark Light by Castle Black

Castle Black is a Brooklyn-based rock trio, bringing a powerful and thunderous sound, full of hard-hitting jams, never sacrificing the hook. Described as drawing from punk, post-punk, grunge, alternative and new wave, Castle Black refuses to be pinned down to a genre. Each song careens through an almost stream of consciousness depiction of life stories, social anthems and raw emotions. Gritty female vocals, delicate back-up adornments, roaring drums, canny bass and guitar-forward hooks collide, staying in your head for days on end.

"Dark Light" was the first single off their sophomore EP, Losing Forever. The video was filmed, directed and edited by Jeff Allyn Szwast, and was shot in Brooklyn, New York. The video careens through the dystopian and unsettling images of the song, offering multiple viewpoints and interpretations.

Today's Video Share: Winter is Coming by Chantmagick

My name is Marilyn McNeal and I am a musician, composer and videomaker working on folk pop, experimental roots music, and mobile phone videography.

In 2017, I started Chantmagick, an alt folk music and video project dedicated to original instrumental and vocal harmony driven music.

Chantmagick is my place to make folk/pop music and atmospheric soundtracks that weave together acoustically and digitally generated sounds.
I draw my influences from American roots music, West African music, indigenous and hand made musical instruments, Gregorian chant, English folk ballads, and nursery rhymes.

Currently, I am composing on acoustic guitar and piano, but at the beginning of the project, I focused on chanting over electronica. I have over 50 songs of this nature.

"Winter is Coming" is a change of season tune that pays tribute to shifts in nature and the passage of time. i included footage from around the UC Berkeley campus, Vallejo, California and my own back yard!

Today's Video Share: Go by Shana Strange

"I was in a tough place at this season when I wrote 'Go', torn between two realities. One being my passionate desire to dare to dream really big and fulfill my purpose for being alive; and the other reality was that I was flat broke trying to chase this dream in my heart that I felt God had put in me. So you can hear the struggle in the verses about the lonely, scary places that I had to walk through but you can also hear the bravery in the chorus when I decide to just do it anyway."

Today's Video Share: Color The Air by Magen Tracy

Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections, from Boston, MA, combines soulful vocals, poignant songwriting, and piano-driven pop-rock with a dash of sleazy swagger and alt-country twang. Their new video, “Color the Air”, features the dance and choreography of Whitney Hoke, and was recently nominated for the Boston Music Awards 2017 Video of the Year (Unsigned Artist).

“Color the Air” is, at its core, a song about loss; an older, long-ago loss–the one you're supposed to be over but that creeps in when you let your guard down. More than that, though, it's about the way artists take losses and lean into them, turning them into something performative. It's about the process of mining older pain, and the moments when you've created something that moves someone else. Whether you are dancing for yourself or playing to a room of people, you're reliving those moments of sadness not to wallow in them, but to transform them into something universal. At its best, this is what art can do, for the creators and the audience.

Today's Video Share: Fairy Tales by Eline Chavez

The driving desire behind this video was simple, I wanted to help give a voice to the voiceless. My name is Eline and once upon a time, I was all of them. I felt alone, misunderstood, and was picked on or made fun of...I wanted all those that felt that way to know that I was in their corner. I wanted them to know that they were not alone and that I was rooting for them. I wanted them to know that there are a lot of people who care about them and want to see them shine.
