J*Davey- No More (live) Southpaw BK

J*Davey- No More (live) @ Southpaw BK

I must say that I had a great time at this event, which was buzzing on a night when Talib Kweli had a free outdoor concert, and Flying Lotus also had a free show. As you may have heard Zoe Kravitz and her band Elevator Flight were invited to perform as one of he opening acts…. so that brought out some famous fans of hers including her father Lenny Kravitz and Drake.

But this night was all about J*Davey… building anticipation for their forthcoming album New Designer Drug. I made sure to get a spot at the front of the stage, because I needed to get better footage than last show at SOBS in April. Let’s just say they didn’t disappoint they had a lot of surprises for the audience including Brook’s solo songs, and Miss Jack Davey with a special announcement… you can check the video for more.

Sorry for the delayed post on this but I’ve been spending so much time just enjoying this Free EP!!!! This reminds me of the early J*Davey record Beauty In Distortion… but sonically so much better!!! At this point I think I’m hypnotized by the sound… Ms. Jack Davey’s vocals…. over the lush production….. all I need. Get the free download before it’s too late!!!!

ECC further delves into the sound that J*DaVeY has been pioneering for years and showcases the multifaceted nature of their music.

J*DaVeY will also be touring with rapper Blu from San Francisco to Austin for the annual SXSW music conference and the East Coast in April and Europe in May.

J*Davey – Get Together (Video)

Get Together
Directed by- Veronica “V Chip” Hinds

This is the video is from the FreeEP Boudoir Synema: The Great Mistapes, Get Together is my favorite song of that project. The look for this video is dark and moody it kind of reminds me of Eyes Wide Shut or The Shining for some reason. I just want to know where are they going? And what is behind that door?
