Playtime!: Brian Bonz @ His Brooklyn Rehearsal Studio – CMJ 2010


We had the amazing opportunity of filming Brian Bonz on the last day of CMJ at his Brooklyn Rehearsal space. Bonz and his incredible band played a couple of songs for us and we couldn’t ask for a better way to end all of our festival filmings. Sit back, relaz, and enjoy the soothing and incredible music of Brian Bonz. (ps. stay tuned for the interview!)

Playtime!: Christopher Paul Stelling “The Lives of Saints” @ His Brooklyn Apartment – CMJ 2010


Christopher Paul Stelling is an amazing up and comer who is currently living in Brooklyn. We caught up with the man himself one afternoon during CMJ in his apartment where he performed for us “The Lives of Saints.” With a haunting voice and music that touches your soul, let us introduce to you your new favorite artist.

Playtime!: Golden Bloom & Neutral Uke Hotel Perform on North 6th Street in Brooklyn @ CMJ 2010


We had the pleasure of filming the boys of Golden Bloom / Neutral Uke Hotel during CMJ for our Playtime! performances. The band was ready to play wherever they could and we think hands down, this is our favorite set in the series so far. It examplifies what we strive for with Playtime! The people walking back and fourth fit perfectly with the songs and it oddly seems like they should actually be there. Nothing got in the way of the boys when it came to pouring their hearts and souls into the music…not even the dog that was sitting by watching them. Well, maybe he did. Check out the two videos below. One song they play as Golden Bloom and the next, as Neutral Uke Hotel.

Former Ghosts Premier New Video, Album On The Way

Former Ghosts are releasing a new album November 9th and in order to prepare you for it, they have come out with a new video.

You can catch the video for the song “Taurean Nature” right here. The video features Freddy Ruppert impersonating Elvis, although not quite in the way you’d expect. It’s not very flattering, and features a lot of junk food.

Furthermore, Former Ghosts are giving a sneak peek (or listen, as it were) of their upcoming album New Love over at Self Titled Magazine. Check out the link here and look for Former Ghosts latest full-length November 9th.
