Holidae, “Darkest Shade”

Holidae‘s first music video is a sci-fi novel, dance routine, and musical performance wrapped up in one. What could tie all those things together? Ashley Gold, her facial recognition software-defying make-up, and Gold and Garrett Neal’s song “Darkest Shade.”

Sa-Roc, “Queen Ting”

Rhymesayers’s new signee, Sa-Roc, is dropping a video every week in a series called Wisdom Wednesdays. In this first one, she never shows her face, steering viewers toward the lyrics instead of anything to do with image.

Prof, “Standout”

As YouTube commenter Matt Borchert called it, “Easily the most internet thing I’ve watched all day.”

Jon Storm, “Undeniable”

Minneapolis native Jon Storm strolls past Twin Cities landmarks and lots of Pianos on Parade, aiming to raise awareness of music nonprofit Keys 4/4 Kids.
