New Video: Father - “Heartthrob”

written / blake matthews

“Better call the cops, I’m ‘bout to run up on yo’ block.”

Our favorite progenitor Father spills the supple visuals for his summer release “Heartthrob” and it’s nothing short of the Atlanta-bred style and grace. Ramez Silyan partners with the Awful Records’ general to create a colorful, innocent and heavily subtle aesthetic around the single’s child’s-play like sound. Successfully placing HEARTTHROB merch-line spots and the beautiful Avalon Lurks contours well and shows Father isn’t *always* dripping with fantasized drug lust. (Well shit, maybe he is and not like that’s a bad thing.) I remember meeting Father back in May and hearing him on his stance with the drug scene domestically and internationally. “It’s what you make of it,” he begins as he jaunts into the greenroom. “Its overrated but sometimes you like to be apart of the crowd experience when the music is involved. I’m coo’ tho. I’m tapped out,” followed by laughter. Genuine words, genuine art. I’ve watched this video about 10 times already. Don’t @ me.

New Music: RUDE - “Everyday”


Seattle’s newest duo RUDE drops another confident track rightfully titled ‘Everyday’, speaking on the daily grind for paper notes. RudeAssMogli and Crow: this interesting combination of sharper lyricism styled to one that carries us over sensitive (but hitting af) drum hooks. I’ve enjoyed seeing this creative pot boil. I wonder what we can expect before the end of the year? *thinking emoji* - b.
