Samantha Crain — Kid Face


Folk

Zach Hale
Take away the album name — and its cover — and you’d never know Kid Face was released by a 26-year-old. The most alluring weapon in her arsenal, Samantha Crain’s voice resides somewhere between Nico’s husky croon and Joni Mitchell’s tuneful elegance.

Music

Joshua Boydston

Bread + butter

Local music video directors LAMAR+NIK are making serious waves in a quietly thriving art form.


Music

Zach Hale

If you think the music video is a dying art form, you haven’t being paying attention. Sure, it has probably been a good decade or so since MTV has shown one, and if a Top 40 track does get the video treatment, it’s usually not the most artistic visual representation.
