Lando Chill finally drops Coroner

Monday, May 2nd

Ladies and gentlemen I present to you, your melancholy song of the summer.  Lando and his camp have been sitting on this one for a while, and to say we’ve been waiting to share it with the rest of you with eager anticipation is an understatement.  The track was conceived when producer Tom Johnson (aka Triceratops of the rap duo Headlock) gave Lando a beat.  A dreamy, blown out piano and hi hat hook, paired with Lando’s sing-songy style, create an anthem that speaks of loss and regret in our short attention span age of inter web speak.  Directed by Malcolm Critcher & shot by Symeon Platts of Mild West.

Jivin Scientists release Abigail

Runt & Phen (James Owens and Ryan Truncoso respectively) are members of an interstate, on the grind, Hip-Hop collective known as the Jivin Scientists.  For the video – Abigail, JS made a late night dash across the state line to New Mexico.  They met up with their artistic partner and video director Concept Flux (Phillip Torres et Crew) for a 48hr, multiple location, little to no sleep shoot.  Runt’s narrative about Abigail, tells a story about a pretty yet sad neighbor girl.  She has him at the crossroads of crush and concern, and he’s hesitant to make a move out of equal parts shyness and respectfulness of her self imposed cage.  Phen’s production sees layered vocals over an 8 bar guitar sample and a steady ebb and flow of percussive builds that Torres, in turn brings vividly to life.  Now on their third collaboration together, Jivin Scientists & Concept Flux have found a lovely kind of  synergy that hopefully keeps bearing fruit.  And with Runt & Phen already putting the finishing touches on a new album for 2015, that seems very likely.
