Self-proclaimed grunge pop baby talker’s latest venture is a cover of an iconic mid-2000s rock track – TV on the Radio’s “Wolf Like Me.” It’s a high energy, lyrically passionate song that talker manages to make her own. The music video is quite simple, showing talker and the band recording in a studio, which allows for the music to be the focal point. talker’s voice brings a unique, edgy femininity to the song. Her cover is cool and effortless, and it makes you want to dance around until its time to press replay again.
Imperfect Fifth is largely located in the midwest. So, we kind of get the brunt of the weather, to say the least. It should be all showers and sunshine, and we went from weather in the 30s this weekend to 83 today. Who even knows what’s going to happen? I guess the only reliable thing this time of year is new music and incredible new music videos, that truly seem to be popping up like flowers everywhere! So take a break from the allergies and any stress to get lost in our favorite new video releases of the month.
(Check back all month for more additions!)
Scott Lavene‘s latest video for his track “Broke” is quite the theatric accomplishment. The song itself has its quirks – as Lavene seems to be known for his tongue-in-cheek references already -, comprised of spoken word over ridiculously calming layers of instrumentals. If it were up to us, it’s your time to get lost in the fabulousness of this new visual. Check it out below, and let us know what you think! (Then perhaps down some champagne in a top hat in a park somewhere?)

Today, rhythmic R&B collective Tank and the Bangas – comprised of Tarriona Ball (Lead Singer/Poet), Norman Spence (Aux Keys), Joshua Johnson (Drummer/MD), Merell Burkett (Keys), Etienne Stouflet (Tenor Saxophone), Albert Allenback (Alto Saxophone/Flute), Jonathan Johnson (Bass), Anjelika Joseph (BGVs), and Kayla Jasmine (BGVs) – releases the live performance version of their gorgeous, fun track “Nice Things”. The amazing news is that those of us who are not lucky enough to have ever witnessed them alive will be able to catch up with the rest of the world. Their style, energy, and talent are insanely palpable in this video, and we’re over here just ready to make some new best friends.
Check it out below. Then catch them next time they’re live in your city. Because, honestly, there isn’t much better than that.

Taken from her new album Texas Honey, blues/rock songstress Ally Venable drops the new music video for her track “One Sided Misunderstanding” right here, right now. Comprised of beautifully shot footage from what looks to be a studio session, the video displays a little bit more of Venable’s attitude and a whole lot of her live performance flare. You’ll fall in love with the guitar chords, as they dance around her vocals and make you feel just a little more alive than you already did. Explains Venable of the track, “This song is about when you are you are in a situation that seems as if you’ve been put on the back burner, and blamed for something that you didn’t do.”
Take it for a spin below!
