Montreal rapper CeasRock presents the ilovenewyork.usMedia-directed video for “All My $”, the new 514IndoRecordz-produced single from his Zero Gravity EP which features Uness, Loe Pesci, I.Blast and Boy 6lue as well as production from Vincent Pryce and DeeJay IZ. Born Sam Karimi, Ceas is a spokesman for Montreal urban site Mook-Life.com, as well as founder of his own movement, REAL LIFE. Videos have already been released for “Faceless” (click to watch), “10.5” (click to watch), “Mook Life Pt. 1” (click to watch) and “M.O.E.” (click to watch). “While I was writing for this EP, money was definitely on my mind,” says Ceas. “From how I was to earn it, to how much of it I needed to spend, it was looming over my thoughts heavy. I wrote All My $ from this perspective. I was hungry and I didn’t know how I was supposed to eat. The verses depict that hunger from a young desperate man’s view, and an older, equally hungry, man’s perspective. I didn’t feel like performing the verses in the video because the verses weren’t necessarily about me. So I focused on the feeling instead of a literal depiction of the lyrics. I recently graduated from university, but I have no intentions of using my degree to get a job. So, with that in mind, one day I was cleaning out my garage of about ten years worth of school papers, textbooks, old bills, etc… I thought to myself, I didn’t want to just toss it out, I wanted more closure. So I had the idea of burning them in a ceremonial bonfire. I’m burning the old me..I’m burning All My $.” Zero Gravity is available now on Ceasrock’s Bandcamp page.

Brooklyn rapper Logan P. McCoy presents the Dylan Verrechia-directed music video for “Black Morning”, the new single from his EP Strength Of Character. “Black Morning” captures the frustration I felt as a young man in desperate need for personal change but without a clue as to how to bring about this change in my life,” says Logan. “We all go through growing pains and we all have our unique ways of dealing. In my alcohol and weed fueled meditation, I reached the conclusion that death might be the necessary catalyst for the change that I was so desperately seeking.” Logan describes the Strength Of Character EP as “an experiment that became the foundation of a new sound. Initially my idea was to poke fun at ’90s style rock/pop music that MTV had made popular. Being first and foremost an underground MC, I thought it would be funny being that I didn’t play any instruments and knew nothing about making rock music. Having no band or instruments to craft the sound I had in mind, I decided to follow the Hip Hop tradition that I came from of flipping what I had to accomplish my goals.” Strength Of Character is available now on Logan’s Bandcamp page.

Montreal rapper CeasRock presents the 5Pound Media-directed video for “Faceless”, the new 514IndoRecordz-produced single from his Zero Gravity EP which features Uness, Loe Pesci, I.Blast and Boy 6lue as well as production from Vincent Pryce and DeeJay IZ. Born Sam Karimi, Ceas is a spokesman for Montreal urban site Mook-Life.com, as well as founder of his own movement, REAL LIFE. Ceas believes that every single object, person, place or theme can be rapped about in an interesting way. “It’s all about the context” he says. Ceas has done R&B-flavored collaborations with the Uness and Crime In The City collective (click to listen) as well as live interpretations of soulful cuts on his Coolest Cats tape (click to listen). Videos have already been released for “10.5” (click to watch), “Mook Life Pt. 1” (click to watch) and “M.O.E.” (click to watch). “Faceless is my way of saying we’re all just numbers,” says Ceasrock. “It’s that feeling you get when you watch everybody go to work on the train in the morning. All these people have a story, but who cares? In the first verse I speak on my own story as an emcee, and how being relatively unknown is shaping me and the decisions I make. The second verse addresses the female population that is faced with a double standard of expectations on the daily. Both verses end with words of encouragement to keep it moving in this rat race we call life. The video is meant to symbolize this feeling of censorship through different depictions of facelessness.” Zero Gravity is available now on Ceasrock’s Bandcamp page.

Anything can seem impossible until we see someone do it.”

Malmo Sweden’s THIS IS HEAD releases “Repetition” EP featuring a video for “Repetition Radio” one of the 3 new versions of the song “Repetition”, which highlights the bands take on krautrock/electronic grooves within their progressive indie pop songs. With a handful of EP’s released in the US in 2013, including remixes from PRINCE RAMA, KORALLREVEN, EL PERRO DEL MAR and others, THIS IS HEAD played and a handful of choice shows in Toronto and NYC in late March 2013, and will be back in early Feb 2014. The full album, The ALbum ID will be released in North America in Feb 4 2014.

“This is Head make expansive, widescreen pop that doesn’t rely on “whoah-ohs” to convey emotion. There’s an expressive use of dynamics on the band’s new longplayer, The Album ID.” Brooklyn Vegan

” The video to their second single off the album, “Illumination!” It’s a comically-creepy look at the supernatural with music that is so infectious it’s enough to put you in a trance itself.” FILTER

“The moment just feels right for epic psych pop, doesn’t it? At least that’s what we thought when we saw the video for This Is Head’s delightfully aqueous “Time’s an Ocean.” That’s why we’re sharing it with you now. We want you to feel like you are floating gently in the ocean of time just like we do.” MTVIGGY
