Evan Russell Saffer - Chemical Marketplace

Evan Russell Saffer's new video "Chemical Marketplace" from his debut solo album Neon Gas begins with Saffer going to see a doctor, who instead of nurses, has two very intimidating looking "gents" who open the door, speaking every word in sync as those their minds have been melded together. He finally gets to see the doc, proclaims that he's not feeling very well, to which the "doctor" replies: "I think I have something for you." He is then held down by the in sync twosome, while the doc gives him a "shot". The video then switches scenes back and forth between the office and Saffer performing "Chemical Marketplace" in a club setting. It's a fitting video for the song, which starts off with a frenzied but very much in control electric guitar with hard rock drums, which are then joined by a second electronic guitar and an anthemic wail of rock that leads into the first verse. The track is dubbed a floor-it-with-your-head-out-the-window drug anthem, and you will bob your head, move your body, and let your senses go wild with this sensationally well put together masterpiece. It's non-stop hard rock at its best.

AO Music Sings A Universal Message

AO Music captures the true essence of heartfelt worldly music on their track 'Ena Na Lena'. This song is beautiful, light and uplifting. It begins with Michael Cooney's celtic penny-whistle that breaks into an incredible African world drum beat. Singing on this track is Johannesburg's Bishop Bavin St. George's Children's Choir, and they give the song a feeling of innocence and deep meaning. The music video that accompanies this track displays images of nature and people from all over the world in their native element. 'Ena Na Lena' is a Afro-Celtic world anthem that foreshadows the power of love and unity by bringing together people from every corner of the world.

One World, One People, One Voice: the message is in the music of ....and Love Rages On! With their new album, released today, AO Music have created a collection of global grooves that manage to be both soothing and propulsive. The music's cinematic sweep and an impressive dynamic range combines booming, percussive cadences from all over the world with melodic vocal and instrumental interludes – recorded in real time by real musicians -- and the sounds of children's choirs from the United States, South Africa, China and the Republic of Georgia.
