Check out the latest video from folk singer/songwriter Jeremy Stricklin's project Oh, Jeremiah, "Beautiful Monster", a Josh Ritter-esque take on Americana.

The video for Oh, Jeremiah’s “Beautiful Monster”, a cut off of its latest EP, Our Very Own Kingdom, is indicative of the sonic the band has created for itself. Shot in a cozy, bookshelf-adorned room, the group—fronted by Jeremy Strickin, who wields a nifty parlor guitar—spins a yarn about the dangers of falling for someone that you know is dangerous. The band’s style on “Beautiful Monster” brings to mind Josh Ritter at his most intimate: warm, inviting, and altogether pleasing to the ear.

Johnny Marr describes the video as, “A ‘high times in low rent England’ kind of thing whereas the song ‘Easy Money’ is more of a ‘low times in high rent England’ kind of thing.”

The talented London-born, NYC-based Sofia has offers up a sparse, Auto-Tune accented acoustic cover of Beyoncé's "Partition".

As one particularly insightful Saturday Night Live skit showed the world this year, there’s a special kind of devotion that comes with being a fan of Beyoncé. Viewing people’s reports of “Queen Bey” and Jay-Z‘s recent On the Run Tour over social media, one might get the impression that seeing Beyoncé live is some kind of religious experience. One might think, then, that taking on the task of covering this world-renowned artist to be a daunting task.

Leading up to the release of the String Cheese Incident keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth's newest solo effort, Speed of Life, you can stream the entire album here at PopMatters.

Kyle Hollingsworth no doubt has a lofty task as a member of the String Cheese Incident; being in a group known for dynamic jams heavily reliant on tight interplay, Hollingsworth has no doubt had to build some serious chops as a result. Unsurprisingly, then, Hollingsworth has taken his creative energies into other realms, including solo work. Speed of Life, his latest outing, marks his third solo album, and in addition to Hollingsworth you’ll hear musicians from the String Cheese Incident, Big Gigantic, and the Motet.
