VIDEO: Boogarins’ “Erre”

Boogarins’ brand of trippy rock’n’roll gets visually turned into something that is very much eye candy, as the sound is ear candy for anyone who listens to this band. “Erre” is the song, As Plantas Que Curam (Other Music Recording Co.) is the title of the album, and Brazil… well, you know.

What you will find out are tour dates, as Boogarins will be hitting the road starting tomorrow. This will definitely be a must-see concert and tour, do not pass this up. If you are going to SXSW, head to their performances.

VIDEO: Lumerians’ “Smokie And Lady Chronus”

Lumerians “Smokie and Lady Chronus” from m m on Vimeo.

When Lumerians released The High Frontier (Partisan) a few weeks ago, I’m not sure if they imagined one of the videos they would make would be considered NSFW. But here we are, in September of 2013, and we’re going to watch something naked.

Note I said “something”. This is the video for “Smokie And Lady Chronus”. If naked things are offensive to you, or you would prefer to watch something more sensitive, a clean version has been made.

VIDEO: Lumerians’ “Life Without Skin”

Lumerians – Life without Skin from m m on Vimeo.

Can you imagine a “Life Without Skin”? Suntan lotion companies would go out of business, but skin cancer would no longer exist. Unfortunately, that might lead to human meat cancer, and that wouldn’t be a good thing. Fortunately, Lumerians have wondered about what it would be like to live a life without skin, and they decided to make a song about it, which can now be felt even more with this handy music video. The song is… well, let’s consider it a preview of their forthcoming album, The High Frontier (Partisan), due out on August 27th. They are sure to make Oakland proud with this one.

Pre-orders for The High Frontier are available below through Amazon.

SOME STUFFS: Lumerians release a new cassette gem

VIDEO: Lumerians’ “Crazy Horses”

Chevaux Fous from m m on Vimeo.

Give credit to any band in 2011 willing to do an Osmonds song, especially one of the good Osmonds songs. In truth, there are many but the group (and the Osmonds in general) have always been looked at negatively because they were wholesome and clean. Yet “Crazy Horses” was the exception to the rule, and many will consider it their favorite song even though they may not know (or are in denial) that it was an Osmonds classic.

This live performance by Lumerians was done live on San Francisco public access television, so you have to love that on that premise alone. Maybe there is indeed something on that Oaktown water, and there’s no reason to doubt their dosage.

The band will be releasing a new album in March called Transmalinnia, so if you like their approach, find out what the band are about by heading to
