Phoebe Bridgers - Garden Song (Video)

Photo credit: Olof Grind

LA Folk Rock artist Phoebe Bridgers's new video is a bit of an odd one and that's because the song is about, "recurring nightmares I have on tour," Phoebe explained. She also mentioned that the song also features her tour manager on backing vocals, she noticed his voice by chance when they were singing along in the tour van and decided that his voice would be a great addition. I'm glad that this nightmare turned into something dream like. "Garden Song" is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.

Benjamin Lerner - Liquid Fentanyl (Live Video)

In August 2010, just 3 days before Mac Miller released his legendary mixtape K.I.D.S., Benjamin recorded “Smoke Rings” with Mac in Pittsburgh. Mac went on to find fame, fortune, and critical acclaim while Benjamin went on to lose everything to addiction. He sought treatment for his heroin and crack cocaine and addiction addiction on June 13, 2016 and has been clean and sober ever since. Having stepped away from music to focus on his sobriety, it was only after Mac passing away that he felt that he couldn't be silent anymore and needed to share his story. The classically trained musician raps while playing the piano on new album Clean, which tells his true story of surviving the opiate epidemic. Watch Ben's rousing performance of "Liquid Fentanyl" below which is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.
