3-30-15 Analog, 80s Inspired Music Videos: Check It Out!

Hey y’all! And thanks to all the new people who have been subscribing, I really appreciate your readership!

I thought I’d share these three new analog, 1980s-inspired music videos with you. It’s new music too. It’s crazy how the the ’80s VHS look is so hot right now. But I think it’s cool in our super-digital-clarity world. Thanks to my peoples over at PIAS and BBGUN Press and for the heads up!

STEALING SHEEP – NOT REAL (okay, maybe not ’80s looking, but definitely Retro!)

Big Data were energized when they hit the sold out Bowery Ballroom Tuesday night in support of their new album “Big Data 2.0″.

Big Data’s social satire was great!

If you liked Lana Del Rey’s first album, you’re going to love Hannah Cohen! There was suspense and expectation in the air Monday night at The Standard: East Village Penthouse. Surrounded by a nearly 360 degree outside terrace, it was an awesome space! The room soon packed and I was lucky enough to be in the front row. Ms. Cohen was there to sing songs in support of her new album “PLEASURE BOY” which will be on sale from label Bella Union on March 31st. Here’s a link to the first single from the album: “Keepsake”.

Dear readers,

In two days, March 18th, I will mark one year of blogging weekly! It’s a big step for me and it’s been a trip!

I want to thank you all for supporting me and swinging by Mondays and Fridays to check out what I have to say. THANK YOU so much!

And I feel like I’ve grown in this last year: I’ve begun reviewing and photographing concerts on Gabriel.Press and blogged about photography, video and my creative process. Heck, I even changed the name of my blog!

Thanks so much for all the support!
Gabriel
