Music Video: “This Life” by Vampire Weekend

20 May

Okay let’s call it what it is, Father of the Bride, one of the best albums of 2019! Vampire Weekend went ahead and created a masterpiece. First release in six years, re-upped with Ariel Reichstad to produce the record, some slick guest appearances, etc. but what excites me more than anything so far, the music video for “This Life” which was directed by Emmett Malloy!  Also the director for “Harmony Hall!”  Selfishly I’ve loved all the Malloy Brother films (Thicker Than Water and A Brokedown Melody, specifically) and they’ve directed some videos of some legendary songs so not surprising I love this video below. Give a watch and see how they also celebrated Passover in Palm Springs.

This Is America

This Donald, we’ve been waiting for someone like you! History already has a place for this video, this message, these lyrics, the symbolism and yet it’s still being written, dissected, shared, conversed, thrusted into the spotlight. Time to wake up! Thank you, Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino. The world is watching and listening.

If you’re into music, you very well know the Chance the Rapper song, “All Night” and probably all of the lyrics. But how about who sings the hook on it?  Knox Fortune, that’s who and he just released a new song in the past week, “Lil Thing.” Give a listen!
