Alternative, Indie | Scott Helman Gets Emotional in “Papa” Music Video

Posted by on August 6, 2020

“Papa” is the first piece of music off of Scott Helman’s forthcoming Nonsuch Park – an album series – will be released on September 4. Papa” is a new single and music video that shows home videos of Helman and his family over the years, and also shows his emotional reactions to some of the clips. The song was dedicated to his late grandfather. Check out a quote from the rising artist below and watch his video above now. Keep your eyes peeled for his upcoming album series, Nonsuch Park, due out on September 4th!

“This album is mostly about me – my changes, my growth, my hardships, my celebrations, my fears, my courage and my love,” says Scott. “It encapsulates many of the winding roads of my life, how they’ve diverged and converged to create a tapestry, and it documents the lessons that tapestry has taught me. If each person has a sanctuary within – a place they can return to where things make sense, where the tides are kind, where colours are bright and their lives feel meaningful – I think we all have a physical destination too where those things manifest. For me that place was the large park just down the road from my Papa’s house in Sutton, UK – Nonsuch Park. It was here where we would walk and cackle at awful jokes, lean in for the stories, make peace with our busy lives and draw meaning from the lessons we had learned since our last visit (made all the more powerful by the fact that we only had a couple more days together). If my past works have been displays of discovery, this work is a declaration – a declaration of love, meaning, questions and truth, and it is all dedicated to you, Papa. Thank you for helping me piece together the fragments of my life and giving me the space to do it.”

A little late on this one but the Summer vibes are very real on this one and I needed some Summer in my life today. This catchy little tune was co-written by good friends Jack Fiskio and TJ Hickey who both hail from Boston. Jack on the hook and TJ shredding the verses was the perfect formula for this catchy tune.

Eprosounds is an artist that’s been on my radar for a good time now and with his latest release “GW Bridge” it was about time I introduce him to FNT. If you’re from the NYC/NJ area you know all about the GWB. I can’t help but reminisce over this original old school hip hop production by E-Pro, and his laid back non-chalant flow centered around a bridge that’s been a huge part of my life growing up. This is the MC’s debut single off his upcoming free album “The Divine Mind,” which will be available February 13th, and I invite you all to check out. This is a must listen and a must download!

Progressive House | LarsM feat. Mona Moua – Air

The two words “oh wow” when said together by a short, yet kinda tall blond girl, or anybody really, will always make me smile and think back to an awesome thing that transpired in my life that is now forever associated with those special words (it’s not a sexual thing I swear (it is)). I didn’t audibly say those two words but I definitely thought them when I first heard the powerful melody in the build of this song. LarsM, a 19 year old Polish producer who has a vast catalogue of past releases, of which most are free, is known for his (hold on, I’m going to reach into my bulging sack of overused blogger adjectives) “happy” sounding tracks. To say that he is on the same level as Avicii when it comes to catchy melodies might be a bit of a stretch, but he is not far behind. “Air”, his latest original, features the impressive vocals of Mona Moua and boasts an incredibly euphoric melody and drop. I have also included his older song “Earthlike” because it is one of his best tracks and it showcases his ability to create those outstanding melodies.

Chill, Dubstep | James Egbert – Exit Wounds (Murtagh Remix)

First off, I would just like to apologize for the scarcity of my posts. A few weeks ago I gained access to a Brazzers account and my life has been in shambles ever since. Not only that, but a few days ago I accidentally checked out the new guy at my work. He had long hair and was wearing a lululemon sweater so there was really nothing I could do there. It was crazy. Also, as if that wasn’t enough, my mom bought me candy cane scented hand soap but it doesn’t really smell like candy canes. It smells like how I imagine a candy cane would smell like after it had been sitting on the street for a few weeks and then thrown at my face by a smelly person.

 

In addition to wondering why Taylor Swift is always kissing a different guy in her music videos and how I wish I was one of them, there has been one other thing on my mind for the past few days and that has been this song. It is not often a song opens with 2 minutes of atmospheric piano and slowly building strings before switching gears entirely and becoming a chillstep track but that is what Murtagh did with his remix of James Egbert’s “Exit Wounds”. While I do think the intro could have used maybe an extra synth or two to liven it up a bit, it is still incredibly cinematic and well done. The uniqueness of it and the fact that it’s free makes this a track worth checking out.
