400? 200? Whatever’s cool with me.

Guess what. Daykamp Music TV is now playing more than 400 videos from 200 artists. Pretty cool, right?

Maybe you want to see some of the Boston Music Awards nominees for Video of the Year? They’re in there. Check out the work of Kingsley Flood, Mean Creek and Parlour Bells. You won’t regret it.

What else? We’ve got the new ones from Parks, Walter Sickert & The Army Of Broken Toys and Coke Weed. We’ve got old vids from Juliana Hatfield and Cold Water Flat. We’ve even got new and old videos from today’s Video of the Day artist, Dinosaur Jr. Whatever’s cool with me.

Mellow Bravo
“House Party”

Mellow Bravo covering “Ain’t Nothin’ But a House Party”? This is some chocolate and peanut butter stuff right here. If you’ve ever seen Mellow Bravo and you’re familiar with the song then you already know what this is gonna sound like. All that’s left is to go download it. Need more incentive? All proceeds go to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan via the American Red Cross. Pony up some dough for a good cause and boogaloo!

Preacher Roe @ Radio 11.1.2013

Despite playing numerous shows with bands I’ve seen multiple times over a span of many years, I somehow never saw Preacher Roe. I’m still baffled by this. Well, that’s all in the past. I finally got to take in a set from these no-frills rockers at Radio to kick off the month. Phew.

Sinnet – Year Of The Whale (2013)

Year Of The Whale

Remember that Sinnet song I loved so much? “Year Of The Whale”? Well, it’s now available on vinyl! Yay! The B-side is “Searching For Spectors,” which continues the band’s ability to walk the tightrope stretched between natural feel and slick production. The harmony vocals really shine on this one. Oh, and the handclaps. Can’t forget the handclaps.

But wait, there’s more! The download that comes with this record is for a four song EP. In addition to the two songs on the vinyl, you get a couple of bonus tunes. The first, “Nitetime Creepy Crawlies,” is a real gem. It’s the poppiest number of the bunch. It wears that distinction with pride. “Everybody Into The Pool” brings back a haunting piano sound, like the one in “Year Of The Whale,” before launching into another quality indie rock number.


The grooves of this small-hole, 33 ⅓RPM 7″ are pressed into cool dark gray marble vinyl. The rest of the package is the tried-and-true white sleeve/fold over/vinyl bag combo.

Mellow Bravo – RiPPER (2013)

Mellow Bravo

Oh, what’s this? Mellow Bravo have a new EP?* That’s nice. I’ll just download it and OH MY WHAT THE HOLY GEEZUMS HELL YES! THIS F’N RULES! Look, I love Mellow Bravo. Strut is a great party record with moments that hint at something more. Their self-titled album dug deep to show the world their guts. This one here, RiPPER, cuts through you like a chainsaw through brie. “Feel Like Dancin'” and “Party” are both destined to be perennial set openers. “So Pretty” is right there with the riffs, too. Mellow Bravo close out the EP with the devastating “Low Ain’t The Bottom.” They back off the gas a bit to deliver the knockout blow. RiPPER just became my favorite Mellow Bravo release. JUST GET THIS, OK?

Where to get it:

* Yes, I know it’s not brand-spankin’ new anymore. I’ve been too busy listening to this thing to write about it, OK? Back off.

Garvy J. And The Secret Pockets Of Hope And Resistance @ T.T. The Bear’s Place 10.18.2013

Garvy J. And The Secret Pockets Of Hope And Resistance blow my mind every time they take the stage. Their presence at The Daykamp Poster & Photo Show was no exception. Their sound bends the space–time continuum as much as it blends genres. They are diametrically opposed to themselves. Garvy J. And The Secret Pockets Of Hope And Resistance are the tranquil freak-out.
