Friday Videos: OKGO, George Usher and Skeleton Staff

OKGO_gravity
OKGO is back to making viral videos that you can’t avoid. “Upside Down Inside Out” is exclusive to Facebook and Okgo.net – no youtube embeds yet. The band choreographs zero gravity acrobatics to the music.

Great photo montage video “Not The Trembling’ Kind” from the master, George Usher. From the upcoming compilation “George Usher -The End And The Beginning 1990-2009” Learn more about this song on George’s Blog.

A long time in the making using Disney styled animation techniques “I Told You I was Poor” is the first standout track from Skeleton Staff album “Psychomorphism”.

Singles: Luke Potter, Ryan Hamilton, The Outryders and The Well Wishers



Luke Potter
has been on our radar for a while, this nice Halloween themed video displays “Ready or Not” an original that has plenty of funk, and a catchy chorus that sticks in your head.

Ryan Hamilton – this video of “Records and Needles” is a sweet tribute to rockers of the past. See how many classic LPs you can name being parodied here (it’s pretty easy). We reviewed Ryan’s debut “Hell Of A Day” earlier this year. Also check out the video for “Four Letter Verb.”



The Outryders
make no apologies for the fact that they are happily stuck in the period of late 80s and early 90s melodic guitar based pop. The band is the duo of Joe Algeri (Jangle Band, The JAC, Britannicas, Jack & the Beanstalk, Summer Suns) and Paul Colombini (Roadstar, Cherrytones) and no tricks here, these singles are a FREE downloadable treat!



The Well Wishers
(aka Jeff Shelton) delivers us an obscure cover of Abba’s “Suzy Hang Around” an album cut from their “Waterloo” LP. This is another goodie for your audio treat bag, being a FREE download.

Singles: Squeeze, Bill Lloyd, The School, Mia Milan, SA Reyners

The Video Jukebox
Here is a sampling of some new singles from Power Popaholic’s picks. Some artists are new and some are old, but they are highly recommended, and deserve to be heard!
Squeeze returns with “Happy Days” from the upcoming album “Cradle to the Grave”


Bill Lloyd “Yesterday” from the upcoming CD “Miracle Mile”


The School “Do I Love You” from their upcoming album “Wasting Away And Wondering”


Australian singer Mia Milan “I Won’t Cry”


New Zealand’s own SA Reyners “The Other Way”

The Solicitors “(You Should See) The Look On Your Face”

We reviewed the Solicitors Blank Check last year, a very strong power pop album. Here is the latest video that is both funny and creepy at the same time! The new single “(You Should See) The Look On Your Face” is a slight departure from the bands raucous signature sound; dropping a few beats per minute from their previous offerings but keeping the spiky guitars and dry wit that has become synonymous with the group.

Holiday Music: “I’ll be drinking this Christmas” and “Bad Sweater Christmas Party”

Scott Gagner features probably one of the most popular activities this holiday seaon. From his LP Rise & Shine which I reviewed early this year.

I always enjoy a new jingle-jangle classic and The Bishop’s Daredevil Stunt Club has a shiny new single that’s ready to be unwrapped. It’s a free download and it has a pretty neat-o B-side “Never Be Big Stars,” which reminds me a lot of Cheap Trick. Thanks for present guys!
