VIDEO: Adicript – “Martyrs of the Blanket Hand”

Here’s a new lyric video from prog rockers Adicript of their song, “Martyrs of the Blanket Hand”. A dynamic song structure makes you think and the musical styling / heavy grit will make you want to throw some chairs around the room. Keep an eye out for these guys as they rock more and more heads in Sonoma County.

BIO: Adicript is a Santa Rosa based progressive rock band that strives to bring an uncompromising blend of technical musicianship and accessibility. The band formed in early 2013, with the creative chemistry between guitarist George Allen Cudworth and drummer David Gray as the catalyst, and the addition of singer Dustin Covington as the final piece of the puzzle. Since then, the trio has played numerous gigs, recorded the Ad Initium EP, and produced a large body of constantly evolving material, carefully crafting and refining their sound into something truly special. With George’s driving and articulate guitar work, David’s dynamic and layered drumming, and Dustin’s soaring melodies and poignant lyrics, the band hopes to share their musical vision with the world, and to do their part to bring rock back to the forefront of the music scene.

We’re just scraping the bowls of our pipe dreams
Finding means with our noses in the corner
In room well lit and infinite
Making province on tradition and pocket lint
Painted skies, thick primer normalcy
Red meat and my bootstrap gumption
21 gun salute
To bid adieu to salvation
Perfect morons beat chests
For oxymoronic bliss
Star spangled smiles ain’t biased
Because god’s on our side, choke down the biggest lie
Belaboring naïveté
You trip on truth like a bad drug
In a life of severed tongues I’m taking cause with
My psychedelic mouth
Well you wrote the song that started the whole world dying
And I sing, sing, sing
We coexist in dissonance, you are the blindfold hymn
I’m the caged bird beating my lungs
And leave here breathless
I don’t mind
I cleanse these lungs of stale air
This nothing you cycle to us
No matter the amount of time
No matter if they collapse
Nor if I’m the death or life of the matter
This is a matter of fact
Well you wrote the song that started the whole world dying
And I sing, sing, sing
We coexist in dissonance, you are the blindfold hymn
I’m the caged bird beating my lungs
Star spangled smiles ain’t biased
Because god’s on our side, choke down the biggest lie
Belaboring naïveté
You trip on truth like a bad drug
I distort the wool in your eyes taking cause with
My psychedelic mouth

Having played shows all over the west coast as well as well other places, the band won Top Overall Honors in the 2013 Project Independent contest and will be playing dates on the Project Independent Tour in 2014.

VIDEO: Cuban Cigar Crisis – “The Cad”

SoCoRock favorites Cuban Cigar Crisis have done it again. Check out their latest music video, entitled “The Cad”. A seemingly odd time signature gives a tug+pull effect, yet reveals itself as standard 8/4. A great song accompanied by a very well made ‘rustic’ video with a colonial/oppressive theme – 2014 alternative rock at its best.
