UNDER THE RADAR: Latasha Alcindor – “Revoke Thee”.

Brooklyn native Latasha Alcindor gets straight to the point with her “Revoke Thee” video. It’s about the bars. The record, which is based on a true story, is tense and aggressive, as L.A. goes straight at the necks of two people in her life who tried to get her caught up.

Latasha explained to Dinner Land that the song is of her Teen Nite At Empire project, which is set to release in early 2017. The project is dedicated to “nostalgia, the adolescence of acting out, bootleg Hot 97 mix tapes and resurgence of femme lyricism and storytelling.”

UNDER THE RADAR: Foxygen Have a New Video for “Upon a Hill”.

Foxygen often blows a lot of their work out.The psych-rock outfit are totally comfortable crafting an album more than an hour long. The band will record six-minute tracks and musical suites that run several songs. Maximalism, in some ways, is the band’s calling card.

That said, “Upon a Hill,” from the band’s new album Hang, is short and to the point, and so too is the new video for the minute-plus track. There’s little more to see here than some goofy dancehall theatrics and red-stained shots of creepy toys crowding the screen. From a band who so often go to 11, it’s refreshing to see a touch of restraint.
