Today’s tune comes from Dutch band Bettie Serveert. “Brother (in Loins)” appears on the band’s 2016 album, Damaged Good. The band recently released a music video to accompany “Brother” and I love its 1980s feel. The […]
Today’s tune is one of my favorites from Death Cab for Cutie’s 2015 album, Kintsugi. The Japanese term “kintsugi” translates to “golden joinery” or “golden repair,” which is the art of repairing a broken piece of […]
Vinyl. Lou Reed. Mechanic shirts. Black-rimmed glasses. Sounds like a teenager in the 1990s… or a 2010s hipster. Fergus Brown pokes fun at the hipster subculture in his song, “Nerds in Love,” referencing all of those things […]
Do you believe in soulmates? The gorgeous music video for “11 Miles,” directed by Ben Stamper, explores this idea using the “red string of fate” concept. The red string of fate is a belief originating from a […]
The television and film industries have seen plenty of remakes and reboots these last few years, with even more rumored to happen.

Weather-wise, not much has changed since last week’s Tuesday Tunes post. In fact, I’m not sure it ever truly stopped raining.

For this week’s song, I figured if we can’t get sunshine outside, we can at least get some in this music video – literally.
This week, I’m busy with writing assignments, getting over a cold (fun!), and rehearsing for a vocal recital so today’s post will be a little shorter. SMS [Shine] is an inspirational song from the David Crowder Band with an amazing music video made with a Lite Brite. I wasn’t one of the cool kids who got to own a Lite Brite so I used to watch the commercials with wonder and amazement. Even as an adult, I watch this music video with that same sense of wonder. It’s so amazing to see how the band turned a children’s toy into a brilliant storytelling tool. Fair warning, the video
might will make you cry.
