Cherry Glazerr – Call Me (feat. Portugal. The Man)
Earlier this year, Miami-based artist, Steven A. Clark released his excellent sophomore LP, Where Neon Goes to Die, via Secretly Canadian. Today, he shares a behind the scenes look at the album’s recording process.
Through the process of recording Where Neon Goes to Die, German producer and DJ Boys Noize and Clark built up a close working and personal relationship. The two bounced the music back and forth over email, until they finally came together at Boys Noize’s Berlin studio for the final sessions. Director Lil Internet documented the recording process between Clark and Boys Noize. The resulting footage culminates as part of today’s just-released mini-doc, which speaks to the process into the making of Where Neon Goes to Die, Clark and Boys Noize’s admiration of each other, Clark’s motivations, influences, and more.
Where Neon Goes to Die is a portrait of Miami built on ten songs: eight songs written by Clark, two written by Clark’s uncle. Miami is where Clark’s lifelong love of music became a full-time gig, and it also happens to be an enormous playground filled with temptations for a budding young artist. Fittingly, Where Neon Goes to Die explores a complex relationship full of highs and lows. From sultry pop to heart aching ballads, the album retells Clark’s travels through the city’s nocturnal fantasyland through hooky, R&B-infused synth pop that (maybe ironically) could fill the floors at the same clubs he’s singing about.
Cherry Glazerr today release their video for “Call Me,” their new single featuring Grammy award-winning Pop/Rock Group Portugal. The Man.
Cherry Glazerr - the Los Angeles based trio led by front-woman Clementine Creevy, made their late night TV debut on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden last night. Joined by Reggie Watts, the band performed his remix of “Daddi,” the first single from Stuffed & Ready, released earlier this year.
Today Alex Cameron releases his third album, 'Miami Memory.' As with 2017’s 'Forced Witness,' Cameron’s flair for narrative and character are on full display, yet for the first time, 'Miami Memory'’s most frequent narrator is himself. 'Miami Memory' is Cameron’s love letter to his partner; a vulnerable, tender, and at times lustful, dedication to the one he loves.
Following “Far From Born Again, “Divorce,” and “Miami Memory,” Cameron now presents the album opener and final pre-release single, “Stepdad.” Cameron has become a major presence in his girlfriend’s children’s lives, and “Stepdad” is an ode to the oft-mocked peripheral parental role.
