MusicDishTV Presents "This Old Radio" By Alternative Harpist Anna Cate

video

"This Old Radio" is a harp-based indie track that combines both subtlety and emotion. The entire video focuses on Anna Cate playing her harp and singing the song in her living room. This gives a certain intimacy to the song, kind of like getting to hear a private performance with no one else around. She sings about this old radio, one that a loved one used to play her favourite song on. The cinematography suggests that there is a longing in her life, perhaps for a life she used to have. The shaky, indie style of the camerawork allows the viewer to feel her distress and see that she truly means every word that she sings. To accompany the voice, she focuses much of the video on her fingers playing the harp. Her hands move with such grace and makes such a difficult instrument seem easy to play. Anna Cate's video is certainly one not to be missed.

MusicDishTV Presents "Fallen" By Americana/Country Rocker Eliot Wayne

video

What a way to capture a solid rock band! The producers of Americana/country rock Elliott Wayne's "Fallen" did a great job shooting this driving quick tempo song with well-placed cameramen, with the first stage right, the second stage left, and another behind Elliot and to the left of the drummer who was giving the performance of a lifetime. Another camera in front captured the energy of the band with close ups of Elliot's guitar as he played with passion and intensity. The edits were excellent, adding to the energy, and excitement of "Fallen". The harmony on this song is powerful with strong open intervals between Elliot and the backup vocals of his bass player. The guys were dressed "garage band" casual, but be advised, they are most definitely a strong rocking trio, and it's hard to believe that they were unsigned in 2011! Kudos to Producer Chuck Miller and editor Alex Henley for very smartly done cuts on this video.

MusicDishTV Presents By "Livinin Love" KC Jockey

video


As a tribute to "the soldiers who died fighting for our country," KC Jockey's "Livinin Love" music video is the story of a soldier who deals with losing and gaining love. Being at war in Iraq causes his girlfriend to grow impatient of being apart and break up with him, but once he returns from war, love conquers all. The soldier returns to the smiles and cheers of his beloved family and friends, as well as into the arms of his apologetic girlfriend. The scenario makes you wonder whether or not the girl would stick around if her boyfriend had to return to war again...

The positive message and optimistic vibe of the actual song is unexpected after watching the soldier and his girlfriend argue and break up at the beginning of the video. With a rhythmic and dynamic percussion, "Livinin Love" speaks about being in love and being thankful for what you have. It is a feel-good anthem that could brighten anyone's day by encouraging them to just smile and be happy. The downers, pessimists, and ungrateful beings of the world should take a listen to it in hopes of recovering from their dark days and moving on with their lives. As for our valiant war heroes, after being exposed to so much hate and violence, and defending their nations so that the rest of us can live in peace, "Livinin Love" shows them what they're fighting for and what we wish for them.

MusicDishTV Presents "Hello" By Award Winning DJ JP

video

"Hello", a new animated video from the award winning DJ JP, explodes onto the screen with a massive bass and Electro pop track. The low voice speaks in English, and it's very humorous and entertaining with very simply drawn characters moving around on a black background. The bass has an elastic sound, and a moving line that sounds like a jazz walking bass. A little man in a hat is searching everywhere as he walks past the country side flowers, and through the rain storm to find someone he's trying to talk to, but can't hear. The music becomes more intense as the kick drum and high note keyboards keep climbing higher in tension, and the poor little man just keeps trekking through the city traffic. Ahhh, finally the payoff comes as night falls, and our hero is joined by many friends that came to dance, and party! "Thanks for coming!". This will be perfect when fans come to hear JP spin at one of his shows! Smartly placed social buttons are on the end of the video for social media sites, offering fans numerous ways to connect with DJ JP.

MusicDishTV Presents Robert Nix’s “Walk Down The Street”

video

Robert Nix's video for "Walk Down the Street" is one that's difficult to explain, but incredibly pleasing to watch. He is a post-contemporary composer, but his music is so much more. The video follows Nix as he records the various instruments in the song, creating a fully experimental and pop-rock fusion track. He throws in some cut scenes of himself walking aimlessly through his home-city of Toronto to represent the theme of his song; being lost. The cinematography supports the theme as well, as the dissonance of the shaky camera certainly makes the viewer feel a little lost. The compassion in his voice and power in his presence in the video allows the video to almost attain a sense of spirituality.

All in all, this is a fantastic video from top to bottom. Robert Nix is a mastermind and he displays a true love for his craft. Teaming up with filmmaker Rohit "Badmash" Thakur was a terrific decision and "Badmash" certainly fulfilled his responsibilities.

MusicDishTV Presents "Everything's Going To Be Fine" By American Brit Rocker Barry Keenan

video


American Brit Rocker Barry Keenan's song and video "Everything's Going To Be Fine" are very good. Keenan has a great singing voice and does a fantastic job with this very touching and inspirational song. The video shows a young boy and his drawings, which depict the song's lyrical content about how in spite of all of the bad things going on around us, if we concentrate on the love that's inside each and every one of us, everything will be alright. It's very creative to use a child, someone who is so innocent, to convey something that seems to be so complex to so many adults. If a child knows this, why don't we? The lyrics are solid and Keenan obviously has a very deep connection to his spiritual side and with the word. The folk music and vocal performance deliver the message solidly and with conviction.

MusicDishTV Presents "Breath" By Sound Liberation And Chanda Rule

video

Sound Liberation, accompanied by Chanda Rule, has collaborated with Luma Launisch to create a beautiful artistic video for the song "Breath". This video juxtaposes two layers of video; the vocalist's emotional performance on one and a landscape style shot of an everyday city on the other. The artistic prowess of the video is made evident from the first dissonant synth hit that builds into a great indie-R&B fusion score. The vocalist demonstrates incredible power with a strong, confident singing voice. She guides the viewer through various cultures of the city, exposing the beauty in everyday life. This video is clearly a first-class production and the results is an amazing video.

MusicDishTV Presents KUNVUK - Rapture Pt 1 (Incite)



The official HD video for "Rapture, Pt. 1 (Incite)" from the Australian unhinged metal trio Kunvuk's second LP "Consume Rapture" is almost indescribable. The opening moments of the video with flickering shots interspersed with blackness brought up memories of the movie Paranormal Activity for some reason. Recorded in the rehearsal studio while the band was preparing for a tour behind the new album, the video captures the insanity and chaos that unfolds when the band launches into their music. The first half of the video is chaotic, full volume, and definitely hyped up to the max. In the second half of the video, the band begins playing a very cool sounding up tempo number that is definitely music that metal lovers will enjoy, and the "chaos" subsides. KUNVUK is a very talented band, and if rehearsals have this much energy, the live show must be one non-stop adrenaline rush.

MusicDishTV Presents "In Dreams With You" By Contemporary Singer Lily

video

The video and track "In Dreams With You" from the contemporary artist Lily, who calls the West Australian port city of Fremantle home, and has a rich Eurasian heritage, is a simple, but very engaging experience as viewers see Lily belt out the tune, which can only be described as country with soul. Lily has a beautiful, powerful voice, and this ballad, which includes a sexy guitar solo, and commands this song with the expertise of an artist who has passion and raw talent. The song is hauntingly beautiful, and it's one of the best and most memorable singles that I have heard in a very long time. The arrangement and production, combined with Lily's stellar vocal performance and the great musicianship of those playing behind her make this video memorable and the track one that is a must have. No matter what genre of music you like, "In Dreams With You" will touch your heart and soul.
