KHUSHI – “Phantoms” (Official video + Sofar Sounds session)

Ahead of the official release of the “Phantoms” EP this coming Monday (3 March), two new KHUSHI videos have surfaced online – the official video for the lead track, directed by Ryan Goodman and Amer Chadha Patel, and also a live acoustic performance of the song at a Sofar Sounds night in London.

Watch both of them above. Don’t forget the EP can be pre-ordered on iTunes and also on white 10″ vinyl (mp3 download code included). KHUSHI plays his biggest headline show to date at Electrowerkz on Thursday 6 March to launch the EP (tickets here). This follows on from his recently completed dates with London Grammar, where he opened for them in Bournemouth, Birmingham, Bristol and Brighton.

Someone wore their Gary Clark Jr. t-shirt to a Black Joe Lewis show

After a less than perfect experience at the Arctic Monkeys show last week, I decided not to write a blog. The fact that my significant other bought the tickets as a gift only made me think, “why work for free?”

Actually, she bought the Black Joe Lewis tickets as well, HA! But Marissa personally misses my musings, Mike reminded me he wanted to shoot and the photos are fucking fantastic, so…

 

 

As anyone in Columbus can attest, there’s something special about Newport Music Hall. No disrespect to any of the higher capacity venues, but Newport is as big as I’ll be going for the foreseeable future. If a show gets moved to the LC I can get a refund right?

 

 

Anyways, the show was great. Lewis has definitely logged some hours on the guitar and its starting to show. Personally, I’m a sucker for bands with brass sections and when combined with proper blues in a great sounding room there’s nothing negative I can say about Black Joe Lewis or The Honeybears. Here are two pictures:

 

 

Oh, and the drummer is Omer’s doppelganger.

 

 

I hope I got at least one person to check out The Courtesy Tier, they’re good. Do you think watching Chapelle’s Show while writing this affected my tone? Well, below there’s a Black (and White) Joe Lewis and let’s all cross our fingers that the St. Vincent show stays at The Newport.
