The Chariot x Karina Mia
The Chariot recently finished their farewell tour. I made the effort to see them in Seattle on this tour and this video pretty much sums it up. It features a cover of the song “Speak” by Karina Mia and the new melodies capture the feel of the original while still making it a whole new song.
Video by Micah Bearden. Listen to Josh Scogin’s latest project here.

Phantogram - “Bill Murray”
It’s no secret that we’re excited about Phantogram's latest, Voices, so here’s a mellower track from the album, but just as solid. The album drops February 18. Listen to "Fall in Love" and "Nothing But Trouble".

"Birth in Reverse" - St. Vincent
Even though "Prince Johnny" is easily the best track St. Vincent has released from her/their upcoming self-titled album, “Birth in Reverse” is the only one available as an mp3 so far. To be honest, it’s hard to get excited about any new St. Vincent since that one riff in "Cruel". Here’s the download widget:

"Night Fantasy" - Umberto
Umberto made ISO50's #1 of their overlooked albums of 2013. A solid song with that synth that feels like an 80s sci-fi movie soundtrack. Click here to see our overlooked albums so far.

Broken Age is the new game from Double Fine and the visuals are absolutely perfect. The record-breaking Kickstarter campaign for this game hit nearly $3-million more than their original goal. Not sure how the game plays—not since the 90s have I played an adventure game of this style, if it’s what I think it is—but I have a feeling the beautifully drawn visuals and the story would make up for any lackluster game-play.

Sarah Lee - Your Love Covers Me
Sarah Lee was featured in our top songs of last year. Her newest video is a sing-a-long of a new song, and if you live in Vancouver and were fortunate enough to make it out (don’t worry, there will be more!) you know that the atmosphere was something very powerful. The video captures that nicely, with the audio raw and the voices of the crowd very present.
It also happens to be videoed by DJ Righteous’ very own Joshua Nichol.

"Come Alive (ft. Toro y Moi)" - Chromeo
Toro y Moi and Chromeo is a welcome collaboration. Naturally, the result is quite entertaining. The new album White Women (whenever it gets released) is shaping up to be of the same caliber as Fancy Footwork. Watch the video here.

Overlooked 2013 - Part IV
"Intro ft. Jay Harris (God’s Gift Freestyle)" - Eshon Burgundy
You might hear “Christian rap” and immediately write off the whole genre. Thankfully, there are voices out there like Eshon Burgundy, a truly good rapper, who redefines my own presumptions about such a genre. I’m not sure what part of this song is “freestyle” (possibly the end?), but rap this good shouldn’t be overlooked.
Pay what you want for the album at NoiseTrade.

Tomb Raider Definitive Edition
Video games is not exactly something we post about regularly, but the level of design on the update to Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider, the 2013 reboot of the 18-year-old franchise, brings a new appreciation to the art (and science) behind video game design. If you’ve played this at all, you know that you see a lot of the back of Lara Croft’s head—so the tress effects on the hair will be a nice addition. It is merely a visual update, so not worth repurchasing, but a game worth playing to begin with. The Definitive Edition hits stores today.

Some absolutely stunning pastel artwork of Greenland icebergs by Zaria Forman. Incredibly real, yet retaining that at-closer-look painted feel.
