Trash Blog Live Review: Black Hay at Speak No Evil 24.07.14

Trash

Kate from Trash Blog and BSTV came down to the last Speak No Evil night at the Macbeth in Hoxton. As I’ve mentioned previously, Speak No Evil is the monthly music event we help organise along with our friends in Georges Kaplan Presents… and JB Newman & the Black Letter Band.

Kate has written a really flattering blog piece about that night, and a rather complimentary summation of our musical efforts on the Black Hay front, including our “wonderfully croonerish quality that references the darker side of Johnny Cash” and “beautiful, maudlin textures” amongst other things.

Many thanks, Kate.

‘I Feel Something’ featured on Sex Music Blog + Free Download

Sex Music

SexMusic.tumblr, also known as http://xmusic.fm has featured or song ‘I Feel Something’ on their blog. Given that their blog is dedicated to ‘music to have sex to’, we must admit to feeling right at home with the sentiment and bang-on target.

The track is available for a limited amount of time as a free download and you need only visit the link below to claim a download code for the track. Isn’t that splendid?

Video: I Feel Something

And on a similar note, we’re also very happy to be able to finally share the video we made for this song, our single I Feel Something.

It was all self-produced, financed etc. the inimitable Joshua Kahan came up with the initial concept for the video and directed it.

We had the privilege of working with some great people on this – patient, thorough, committed. True professionals.

We were also graced with the presence of Missa Blue, who if you haven’t heard of you should check out some of her performance videos immediately. She does some crazy things with candles.

Full list of credits on the video:

Video Directed by Joshua Kahan
Editing: Alessandro Zangirolami

Featuring:
Anna Tosh Hall
Missa Blue

Personnel:
Ben Millar – Director of Photography
Patricia Delgado – 1st Camera Assistant
Anton Badstuber – 2nd Camera Assistant
Alice Woodward – Make Up/Props

Thanks to Shoot Blue

Let us know what you think of the video. Would love to hear opinions and feedback as there are plans to make more of these jobbies in the future.
