“What do you do when a dream becomes a lie?” is the central question of “When Cinderella Dies”, the latest single off 21st Century World (2017) by singer-songwriter Bruce Sudano. Produced by Mike Montali (lead singer of Hollis Brown), the song is among the highlights on Sudano’s sixth, self-penned solo album. Director Katherine Paige renders the story to haunting effect through glimpses of insidiously surreal imagery, glued together by Audra Bryant’s powerful dance performance.

No one wrings profound moments of clarity from ephemeral thoughts quite like Mississippi songwriter Andrew Bryant. Singing, “Iron Man was on the TV / I was pouring myself another beer / Thinking about all the pain that’s in my heart / Thinking about Robert Downey Jr.’s scars,” the suburban mise-en-scène Bryant paints on “Robert Downey Jr.‘s Scars” devolves into an adrenaline rush of rock and determination.

Brilliant UK artist Kate Tempest raps her way through a deeply socially conscious track in “Tunnel Vision”, which appeared on her Mercury Prize-nominated Let Them Eat Chaos. With her gift for words, Tempest is a poet of the left behind people in this era of neoliberalism. She also critiques the abuses of the capitalist system and the cult of the individual: “The myth of the individual has left us disconnected, lost and pitiful.” Tempest’s music is meant to enlighten and educate, as well as to entertain.

Trombonist Ryan Keberle and his quintet Catharsis are one of the most versatile “jazz” groups in New York today. And not what you might expect. Featuring vocalist/guitarist Camila Meza, the band uses riveting contrapuntal arrangement for horns to frame songs that communicate directly. This new video is for Keberle’s take on the Beatles song “The Fool on the Hill” from the protest album, Find the Common, Shine a Light, released earlier this summer on Greenleaf Music.

“‘Wanted’ is about public image and the human gaze,” says Becca Richardson of her latest single.

“For the video, I played with the idea of personifying the gaze into this antagonist who is haunting me and manipulating my image, restraining my body at times, putting their fingers on me and leaving a mark.”
