    Wes Youssi Releases New Outlaw Country Single, “Crazy Train”

    Wes Youssi offers the whiskey drenched heartache single off of his upcoming album, Down Low, due out January 19 on Never Lucky Records.

  • 4 Targeted Spotify Playlist Ideas Your Fans Will Love

    This article appeared first on Sonicbids.

     

    Getting on spotify playlists is one of the best ways for bands to promote their music. It can also be a bit of an uphill battle to simply get a Spotify curator to add you to a playlist.

    Over my past few articles, I’ve focused on how you... read more

    Karla Kane -- "Don't Hush, Darling" (music video)

    Karla Kane's video for "Don't Hush, Darling" features dancer/choreographer Tara Pandeya and contains an important message for all mothers to their daughters.


    Kane explains the empowering feminist message:

    "At a school where I once worked, when it was a student's birthday, they would get to choose whether to be the king, queen, prince or princess of the day. While the boys invariably chose king, the girls, to my dismay, always ended up as princess. This song is an... read more

  • One of the highlights of my time writing online was getting to interview the amazing Françoise Pascal, the star of my favorite Rollin film The Iron Rose, for Fascination: The Jean Rollin Experience just over 7 years ago so I am very excited to announce that I recently had the chance to interview Françoise again for a follow-up chat for my print only publication Art Decades. This new interview with Françoise focuses on a number of topics including her thoughts seeing Rollin for a final time, more on The Iron Rose, her autobiography, recent work, future plans and more. This 13th issue of Art Decades also includes an exclusive sneak preview of Spectacular Optical's book on Rollin Lost Girls featuring a number of contributor interviews and an excerpt. The issue will be available to order via Amazon and eBay in July and I will be unveiling our special Francoise Pascal cover here very soon. In the meantime, head over to Francoise's official site for more information on her and her remarkable career.
