Wednesday Rewind

New cuts from Ume, Bob Schneider, and the Black

Wednesday Rewind

Ume's latest scorcher "Captive" is gaining some serious traction. While the video, directed by Matt Bizer and filmed in an abandoned building outside Austin, might strike a little too close to home after the devastating Bastrop wildfires, it premiered on mtvU yesterday and has been in regular rotation ever since.

Ume "Captive"

Bob Schneider "Honeypot"
Speaking of quality television exposure, local favorite Bob Schneider performs live Thursday on the nationally syndicated talk show Rachel Ray. Here's the accompanying video for his new single, “Honeypot.”

The Black "Now I Am Here"
Director Daniel Hill has previously shot videos for the Strange Boys, YellowFever, and Harlem – fine company for the Black to keep. This is a good reason to revisit the band's 2010 sleeper, Sun in the Day Moon at Night.

Black Pistol Fire "Well … All Right"
In case you missed it, here's a sample of Black Pistol Fire at the Chronicle's latest Paper Cuts session. The local duo raves on Buddy Holly's "Well … All Right" better than most of the acts on Charles Hardin's recent tribute albums. Hear more at Austin Music Weekly.
