SeepeopleS Capture the Human Experience in New Single “Shame”

The animated music video for SeepeopleS’s newest single, “Shame”, is a must-watch. This follow up to their video “New American Dream”, also animated by Pete List (Celebrity Death Match, MTV), portrays a child experiencing the emotions that one can relate to all too well, like feeling like an outsider, entering an imaginable world.

This colorful video is pleasing to the eye and impactful; the lyrics attached with these images make us empathize: “Living isn’t waiting for an angel or a savior,” the band sings. “We never seem to learn from the obvious mistakes … Guess we’ll all share the blame / You know it’s a shame”. Their striking sound and visuals are fitting for the upcoming spooky season. This video is its own world.

“Anti-genre indie pranksters” SeepeopleS have been making music for 22 years via their own RascalZRecordZ. The band, created by bandleader/songwriter/producer Will Bradford, explores genre to the widest degree, and covers all of the bases.

SeepeopleS has performed/toured with acts such as: Death Cab for Cutie, Franz Ferdinand, Cracker, and Phish. They are still on their way up their vast musical journey. Field Guide For Survival In This Dying World, their upcoming eighth studio album, is set to release on Oct. 7. Find more information about SeepeopleS at

Zaii Valdes of Violet Silhouette Discusses Musical Heritage

Zaii Valdes of Violet Silhouette discusses new album and proud roots in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.
The sound of Violet Silhouette is unlike anything else you’re likely to hear. Their music blends rock and electronic with dance—with a great deal of mystery tossed in for good measure. But however it’s classified, their sound is rather unique.

Singer/guitarist/drummer Zaii Valdes is joined in the group by Dan Potvin and Justin Gianoutsos. The group’s latest EP, “FEVERBLUE,” drops October 20. In anticipation of the latest release, Valdes spoke with Alchemical Records about the new record and, in honor of his Cuban extraction, Hispanic Heritage Month—which kicks off September 15.
How did you first get involved in music?

Being of Cuban heritage, music and dance were very much a part of [my] cultural and familial experience. Not to mention, there was a spiritual aspect to it—trance states and such that could be achieved from rhythm and beat.
