French musician and producer, Olivier Libaux (Nouvelle Vague) presents ‘The Lost EP’. It is the second volume of songs under Libaux’s project, ‘Uncovered Queens of The Stone Age’. The collection of songs according to the Wall Street Journal “flips that manly air on its head with a dozen of versions of the band’s original songs sung by women”.
A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Devin Kennedy is a musical prodigy, teaching himself guitar, piano, and drums from a very young age. He released a number of singles during 2018, all of which were well received, and today October 4 – which also happens to be his birthday – the Los Angeles native releases his new EP, ‘You & Me, That’s Enough’.
The video for ‘Miranda’, by Lesibu Grand, looks like it was a lot of fun to make. It’s got costumes which shift from 1950s suburbia to space suits which look as though they’ve come straight out of ‘Lost In Space’, or ‘Star Trek’. Filming locations are lush as well, opening on a beautiful mid-century modern house I’d not say no to, there’s also a fair bit of green screen as well, with the couple in the clip flashing between their average American dream to travelling in time and space – complete with rayguns.
Owls & Lions aren’t just your usual wedding band. The New Jersey group show that you can have not just live music, but a band that plays original songs, with an original sound and approach. They make celebratory, stylishly rustic folk-rock, equally suitable for ceremonies, singalongs, parties, and quiet reflection, and their latest single, ‘God Bless You & Protect You’, although addressed to a child, could as easily work for a spouse, a parent, or a dear friend.
