Music Video Monday: My Name is Eustace

Actually, No, it's not. It's actually Christopher, but I thought I would go with the bizarre intro. Welcome to the Columbus Day Edition of Music Video Monday. In some sense, we will be treading into uncharted territory this week, and will be featuring some videos with "animal Magnetism" so to speak.

We begin with another band which is completely new to The Night Beat. Benjamin Dunn and The Animal Orchestra. They are part of a new wave of bands that are redefining both alternative and synthpop by expertly blending the two groups. From the new release Fable, this is My Name is Eustace.

We continue with Abandoned Pools. No, this isn't swimming pools we're talking about. This is Synthpop with a strong Joy Electric sound mixed with Alternative. This is the title cut for Sublime Currency

We can thank Billboard Magazine for our next video. The magazine named Karyn Williams (the Daughter of Orlando Magic Founder Pat Williams) their Best Bet for Christian Music in 2012. She has a nice voice, and while her debut album Only You didn't impress me enough to make the Platinum Vinyl Pool, she has great potential, and deserved to be included in the Best New Artist Pool at least. This is the video for the Title cut.

We finish with another switch up to a completely different style. Lecrae returned to the studio to tackle matters of Gravity. This is Lord Have Mercy (feat. Tedashii).

We are making some great progress through the fourth quarter videos. We may have to return to them in the future as there are probably videos still in the pipeline. Until then, and until next Music Video Monday, happy Columbus Day and as always, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
