The Late-In-The-Week Music Video Mini-Reviews Youtube Round-Up – 3/8/14

Happy Saturday, dear friends. It was a glorious late Winter/pre-Spring day here in the Mid-Atlantic area! But for those of you that may find yourselves indoors with some time to kill this weekend, here’s the latest batch of music videos for you to check out from the past week. Also, don’t forget to set your clocks forward!

The Bar – “Coming (to America)”

I’d be lying if I told you that The Bar’s Barkada isn’t one of my most anticipated project. We’re only a few days away, but thankfully we also have this new video from Pro & Bam. The video is full of community support, even if it’s not the sharpest visual ever. But I’m loving this soulful Hip-Hop track with it’s sprinkle of culture and Tagalog.

Clara C – “Wildflower”

The MV for Clara’s latest single is a promotional tool for Girl Rising, a movement dedicated to raising awareness and funds for girls’ education worldwide. So not only do we get a breezy new single from the artist, but we get a simple but supportive video for an important cause.

Tim Be Told x Michael Lu – “Fools Marching” (Strings Version)

If you haven’t heard TBT’s Mighty Sound yet, then you’ve been missing out. But you can get a new spin on one of the the project’s tracks with this video for “Fools Marching”. They’ve re-arranged it to prominently feature string work by Michael Lu. The video is more of a simple montage of studio clips so there’s not a whole lot to look at, but don’t let that discourage you from checking out a great song.

Toestah – “Dark Thoughts”

Toesteeezy brings us a moncrhomatic visual to promote his track “Dark Thoughts”. The watch isn’t quite as compelling as the listen, but overall it’s a dope Hip-Hop joint. I’ve let the video run multiple times in the background just to stream the song.

Kina Grannis – “Genevieve”

This isn’t one of Kina’s newest songs, but she’s brought back into the spotlight to also highlight and promote Girl Rising. This stripped, acoustic rendition is a pretty way for her to show her support for a worthy cause. It follows a similar format to Clara’s “Wildflower” video, with it’s mix of new footage and home video of supporters of the film/movement.
