Open Mike Eagle's NPR Tiny Desk Concert

Open Mike Eagle had one of the best albums of 2017, that's no surprise.  He took to NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series with songs from Brick Body Kids Still Daydream and beyond, and the results are pretty amazing.  '(How Could Anybody) Feel At Home' and 'Daydreaming In The Projects' come from the album, and 'Very Much Money' is a perfect finale, taken from Dark Comedy.  He's joined by Jordan Katz, Josh Lopez and Brandon Owens for what is an instant favourite Tiny Desk Concert.  Watch below!

VIDEO: Open Mike Eagle 'Hymnal' ft. Sammus

Open Mike Eagle is in the running for album of the year, and definitely has outdone himself when it comes to the videos he's released from Brick Body Kids Still Daydream.  'Hymnal' comes from Dark Comedy Ministries, in which Mike Eagle takes on yet another unexpected role.  It's similar to what he did with 'No Selling', only this time he's inhabited the character of Alobar Crowley.  If you're not familiar with Open Mike Eagle, then you NEED to check out his album, Brick Body Kids Still Daydream and if you want a closer look at what it takes to make it as an independent rapper then his show Dead Ass is a must!

VIDEO: Open Mike Eagle & Paul White - "Dang Is Invincible"

"Dang Is Invincible" from Hella Personal Film Festival by Open Mike Eagle and Paul White.  The video for this track is the work of Studio Doulzia.  It's a 2D animation studio focused on creating feature film animation reflective of groups unfairly censored or underrepresented in media; POC and LGBTQ people, while refining Doulzia’s house aesthetics.  Doulzia founder Alex Pierre directed the video outlines the vision for the project: 

“Conceptually the video parallels Mike's stream of consciousness and the narrative style of rap. The video follows Studio Doulzia's Noul (the protagonist of their film concept Skeletonblood) moving through train cars in a New York Subway Q Train. Noul anxiously looks for a train car where she can feel at ease, her journey speaks to finding assurance and humor in the subtle unfamiliarities that exist within the atmosphere of intimate settings like train cars, that otherwise could make a person feel vulnerable. The song felt really visceral, and we wanted to capture that as much as we can visually.”

The video really is a perfect match for one of our favourite tracks from this album.  Get Hella Personal Film Festival here.
