All Of The Changes

WHEW! I can’t believe the last time I posted was July 16. The things that can happen in the matter of a half of a month…

I decided to forgo full time freelance work for awhile and accept a job with a really awesome company called Crowd Surf. I’m working to connect artists with their fans via social media and digital marketing. I work for/with some pretty awesome artists (Ellie Goulding is one of them, which I’m personally super pumped about), so it’s prettttty rad! If you haven’t checked out Crowd Surf, DO IT!


Some of you already know this, but I was asked to be the Music Editor of an INCREDIBLE website called You, Me, and Charlie. I’m really excited to be primarily bringing you new music via YM&C. I’ll still be posting here every once in awhile, but for more regular updates feel free to follow that little diddy too! Lots of incredible exclusives coming your way there. Best part? It’s re-launching TOMORROW. Get into it!

How could I leave you without some tunes? Here’s my favorite track of the new Passion Pit record. Get ready to trip out a little bit. This videos a doozy.

Happy Sunday!

What. A. Weekend!

The past few days have been some for the books. Full of art, film, music, West Side drives, a little DIY photo-shoot, and delicious wine (a weekend can’t be a weekend without it!), I had one of the best weekends I’ve had in quite some time. Here’s a little peek at a few things that made me happy this weekend!

I FINALLY watched Hugo on Friday. While I was a little disappointed by the lack of robot (haha) use in the video, it was altogether something I’d absolutely watch again. And the score? Someone gimme the soundtrack! Absolutely perfect. The old French influences in the score really complimented the visuals.┬áMartin┬áScorsese did it again!

The always solid Lady Danville released their new EP “Operating” a few weeks ago, and it was definitely on constant rotation this weekend. Their incredible harmonies and catchy lyrics bring me right into Springtime. Check out their video for “Better Side”, off the EP, above!

I had the best time assisting Claire Oring on her collaborative photo-shoot for the ladies of You, Me, and Charlie this Sunday. Not too much can be said about it just yet, but check out and follow Claire’s Twitter here and you’ll be the first to know when the “art-etorial” will be released!

What did YOU do this weekend? Did you watch anything blog-worthy that I should know about? Commmmmment or @reply me and tell me all about it.

Happy Monday! x

Music + Media = Lots of Amazing Music Videos

Woah! Has it really been eight days since I posted last? It’s been a busy week, but I’m back with something fun I discovered today from You, Me, And Charlie, a really awesome blog I’ve been thoroughly enjoying.

I’ve been really digging Imagine Dragons lately, and when I saw this acoustic video, I was even more impressed by their music than I had been before. I was even MORE impressed by the awesome video produced by The Occidental Saloon!

All of the videos by The Occidental Saloon are really incredible. Here are a few more of my favorites:

See what I mean? How cool are these videos? And speaking of cool videos…

We just released another amazing video for Stevie Scott! Directed by the incredible Claire Oring, the video takes viewers through the stars, from a simple meadow to the vast universe in Claire Oring‘s beautiful stop-motion style. Enjoy Stevie’s cover of Ellie Goulding’s Starry Eyed.

Thanks for reading and watching. I hope you were inspired by these videos to create something of your own today. If you were, share it with me via twitter! @spencerrjames.
