Video Hits:: The Russian Futurists, Meligrove Band, Sun Wizard & Gramercy Riffs

The Russian Futurists - The Weight's on the Wheels

It’s Thursday, so how about a serving of videos from your friends here at the hill? Upon going over the four videos I compiled for this edition of the Video Hits, it almost seems as though my subconscious was on the hunt for some peppy, spring-like music. Or maybe I just went with the videos that I hand on hand, who knows? But let’s do this.

 

If you’re like me, when you see a song by “The Russian Futurists featuring Ruth Minnikin”, your first reaction is one of surprise as you might not expect a roots/folk type like Ruth to show up on a track by a purveyor of electro pop like Matthew Adam Hart. I knew the Ack loved the latest Russian Futurists record, but I have to say, when I watched the rather plesant boy-girl-meetup video, I had to admit that the combo works really, really well. I’m surprised I haven’t seen this song around the interweb more, but perhaps this video will do the trick.

I like this video from the Meligrove Band, mainly because I randomly clicked on a link to it last week or something, and had no idea it was an actual video for the song. I was all like “Whoa, this guy LIKES the Meligrove Band!”. But then I was like “Waaait a second, Jason Nunes has his own replica frames???”, and then I figured it out. Nice try Meligrove Band and The Coburg Boys, you were close, but ol’ sharp as a tack Shane spotted your ruse somewhat quickly! I love the all the Meligrove merch in the video though, I hope they made multiples of everything.

It might just be that my springtime musical thoughts were spurred on by this Sun Wizard song, World’s Got A Handle, from their recently released album Positively 4th Avenue. The Ack mentioned the summertime vibes emmanating from this song previously on the hill, and it could be that listening to the song a few times after he put up that post has pointed my subconscious towards the springtime sounds. Or it’s just a great song which now has a fun video.

I was sure I’d posted this Gramercy Riffs video on the hill before, but that seems impossible - perhaps someone else used this footage for a video? No idea, but the Gramercy Riffs are possessors of easily the best Warriors-related name, and this song & vid seems like a good follow up to the previous vid, so there you go.
