VOTD: Ben Rector wants to feel the heat with somebody

The Tulsa singer pays tribute to the late Whitney Houston.

You’d think playing all the instruments on a single track would be intimidating enough, but former Tulsan Ben Rector took it a couple steps further at Norman’s Blackwatch Studios. Per the video below, Rector commands six different instruments (seven, if you count that man-pretty voice of his!) on a cover of one of a much-beloved late diva’s most-beloved songs. That being my favorite Whitney Houston jam, “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.”

Compare the two for yourself. Would love to hear opinions in the comments:

VOTD: ‘Off the Wall,’ indeed

French producer Yuksek impresses with this trippy clip.

You know how Macs have that Photo Booth program?

Well, you know that one effect you can put on it where the middle of the screen splits out, showing a mirror image of whatever’s there on each side of the screen? Well it looks like Yuksek did a really, really impressive, highly trippy version of that to accompany his infectious track “Off the Wall.” It’s way cooler than that time you tried to make it look like you had two heads.

Be amazed:

VOTD: Bells tolling

Watch a video and stream an album for an indie band with Okie ties.

Originally from Lawton, Benjamin Curtis played drums for Dallas alt-band Tripping Daisy and UFOFU before starting The Secret Machines with his brother Brandon and Josh Garza.

Now he’s with Alejandra Deheza in the decidedly shoegazey, ambient-rocking act School of Seven Bells, which just released its third studio album, Ghostory; on Vagrant Records last week.

Get a taste of the song “Lafaye” in this video below, and stream “Ghostory” below that, if you so desire:
