Kim Richey has never been keen on making music videos. So she asked her fans to help. And help they did. They each sent in a photo of themselves with a word from the lyrics of "Wreck Your Wheels", the title track from her new album. The result speaks for itself.
When we talked about making a video for the title track from “Wreck Your Wheels” it was agreed by all that there was little point in making a regulation performance video. Farrah’s “Swings & Roundabouts” had been a success so we thought we’d try a similar fan-enabled concept. With a nod to D.A.Pennebakers footage of Dylans “Subterranean Homesick Blues” (from “Dont Look Back”), we struck upon the idea of asking fans to take a photo of themselves with a word from the song. One photo for each word of the lyric. Taking the idea further we agreed that Kim had to be in the video but we could avoid the fakery of lip syncing all together by only having Kim in the video when she wasn’t singing.
The footage of Kim was shot on digital SLR (stop-motion) in London’s China town, South Bank and Bedford Square.
US pop god Bleu will be making his first visit to the UK in October to support the release of his new album “Four“. Released in Europe on Lojinx and, following his hugely successful (495%!) Kickstarter campaign, his very own “The Major Label” in the US.
Who says June is a hump month? The sun is shining! It’s the start of summer! And it’s the release of the new Farrah and Kim Richey albums!
We here at Lojinx are busy worker bees and are so excited about Farrah’s newest self-titled album – it’s already received 4-star reviews in The Independent and Uncut and looks sure to be a summer favourite!
Kim Richey’s gorgeous new album “Wreck Your Wheels” has already received glowing reviews and loads of radio play all over the country. She’s touring the UK right now so look out for a show near you.
Out now is Josh Fix‘s debut European release in the form of “This Town Is Starting To Make Me Angry“. The follow up to last years top-10 botherer, “Free At Last”, this betwixt albums release see Josh on familiar form – a “post-Radiohead Elton John” indeed.
We here at Lojinx are really excited to be releasing “The Only Bridge I Need” – the debut release from Brooklyn alt-country troubadour Nate Campany and his musical band of brothers The Serenade.
Nate’s unique hybrid alt-country/pop sound is built upon a voice like burnt molasses, great arrangements and brilliant infectious songs.
We had the enormous pleasure of seeing him play live in the states a few weeks ago – first of all in Philadelphia with his band The Serenade, where he blew away The World Café; then at a more intimate show on the lower east side at NYC’s finest music hall, the Rockwood. It was simply Nate and a guitar, and he owned the room.
What’s even more exciting than “The Only Bridge I Need” being now available for pre-order in advance of the May release? The fact that Nate is touring the UK in May. You can catch him live all over the country – just him and his brown biscuit of a guitar – playing his special brand of Americana that’s a little bit pop, a little bit folk, a little bit country and a little bit rock n’roll. Think Harvest-era Neil Young meets Sweetheart Of The Rodeo era The Byrds and Nate fits in somewhere inbetween.
