We’re cruising right along in the eleventh season of the Bongo Boy TV Show brought to you by Bongo Boy Records. This exciting music video focused TV program features an international selection of indie artists and showcases their music and visual accompaniments to an extensive audience of fans. The program airs on Channel 29 in Portland, OR, and is followed by heavy rotation on more than 72 other channels across the country (see TVGuide at bongoboytv.com for your local listing). This week we have Episode 6, appropriately featuring six talented artists across genres spanning from classical to hard rock, and plenty in between.
Opening this week’s program is ROB Rise on Belief with their track Mirror Mirror. A hard-hitting modern rock group, this track is full of intricate guitar solos and driving rhythms, tied together by the lead vocalist’s signature growl. The accompanying video is a dark and dramatic production that matches the high-octane intensity of the track. This is followed by Robert Slap‘s Why Can’t We Live Together? This is an inviting blues/soul number with a restrained but powerful energy, bolstered by heavy electric guitar effects and the song’s mournful, pleading message of peace.
ARTIC BABA is next up with the track Mr. Crazy. This eclectic alt-rock track is distinct and brimming with the band’s individual style, from the lead singer’s unique vocal tone to the theatrical, quirky costumes that drive the imagery in the track’s music video (but don’t sleep on the incredible guitar solo at the track’s halfway point). For a change of pace this is followed by Karen Salicath Jamali, a Denmark-born classical composer and pianist (you can read our full review of her album Hope of Angels here.) Angel Gabriel is an excellent representation of her moving, powerful compositions, and the accompanying nature-themed imagery serves as the perfect complement to the track’s gentle timbre.
The NEW Bardots‘ track Put A Little Love In Your Heart is a stand out on this episode. It’s a fun and high-energy true classic rock ‘n roll number with an extraordinarily catchy hook, and the initial visuals of children growing up right before our eyes is a good reminder of why we should, in fact, put a little love in our hearts. Then, closing things out we have Durango McMurphy with Another Gandhi. With its otherworldly visuals and hints of eastern elements in the production, this is a textured electronic-based number with a danceable beat that serves as an excellent conclusion to this week’s dynamic episode.
