The Avett Brothers

The Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country,punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, indie rock, honky tonk, and ragtime to produce a novel sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the “heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision ofBuddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones.”

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.
