Never trust a contract written by a two-faced lady, even if you're at the circus. Or maybe especially if you're at the circus. Holly Miranda learns this the hard way as she makes her way through a vivid circus where illusions and danger lurk around every corner.
"Black Stone" appears on the just released Monuments album.
Visuals: shot organically using paint and various liquid mediums. Layered on picture with the use of projection and skill and effects in post-produciton editing; golden hour peering through weathered wood in the still of late winter.
JJAMZ singer Z Berg — you know her from The Like and she's the Z of this this acronymous group alongside Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine of Maroon 5, drummer Jason Boesel of Rilo Kiley, Phantom Planet's Alex Greenwald and solo singer/songwriter Michael Runion — flashes back to a frightening time known as the '80s in director Eddie O'Keefe's homage to high school slasher movies. --> watch "Heartbeat"
Ever wonder what happened to Dazed & Confused character Woody Wooderson? As you'll see from this epic Butch Walker video with Matthew McConaughey reviving his breakout role from the 1993 cult classic comedy, Wooderson hasn't had much of an interest in keeping up with the times other than hitting whatever spot the young ladies are most likely to be at. And could you really expect anything less from the man who said, "That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age." --> watch "Synthesizers"
While this video doesn't really answer the question of whether actor Seymour Cassel would be a great director — he does seem drunk and pushy enough to handle the job quite fine — "Summer Of '89" does prove that actual director Shane Valdes probably still has nightmares about the "golden" age of music videos. Much like the song gives a nod to "Summer Of 69," the video pokes fun at the questionable stylings and creative decisions that helped make many videos so timelessly dated. Luckily, Butch Walker and The Black Widows look good and sound good enought to overcome all the surrounding crap. --> watch "Summer Of 89"
