A Week In Videos... She might have just wrapped up her Set The World On Fire tour, but the promotional drive for Alicia Keys fifth album Girl On Fire rolls on, with the multi-million selling songstress putting out a video for the third single from the 2012 Billboard number one LP. The video for 'New Day' sees clips of studio-shot footage of Keys dancing down back alleys, interspersed with footage of the star performing live in various instances. Given that her last single Brand New Me reached a meagre 103 at the tale of end of 2012 in America, it's going to be hard for 'New Day' to make much of an impact.

Kurt Vile's Wakin On A Pretty Daze was his most commercially successful album yet, going close to the top 40 in the UK and making 47 on the US Billboards. Yet the American psych-wizard is about more than sales figures, and pleasingly his fifth album also perhaps marks his most accomplished to-date, a record of dreamy soundscapes and hazy Americana tale-telling. Given the woozy nature of 'Never Run Away,' we wonder just exactly what that smoke coming out of the bus at the beginning of the video is...

Walk Off The Earth - R.E.V.O. Album Review

Recent years have seen the term 'internet sensation' become an overused phrase, yet it can accurately be attributed to Canadian quintet Walk Off The Earth.  A video of the group performing a cover of a hit song with all members simultaneously playing one guitar clocked 35 million views in 2 weeks, impressive figures by any standard.  No doubt it has led to this, their major label debut, and third album overall. 

Walk Off The Earth - 'R.E.V.O.' Album Review

The aforementioned reinterpretation of Gotye's 'Somebody That I Used To Know', organic in sound and with impressive harmonies, sits in the middle of this offering, but the rest is original material.  The title track builds on a simple riff to develop into a power-pop anthem with an inescapable feel-good factor, while the potent mixture of male, female and harmonised vocals make it easy to see why 'Red Hands' has been pushed as a single. Country and folk influences are prevalent across the duration of the record and are particular successful in producing enjoyable moments in the shape of 'Gang Of Rhythm' and 'No Ulterior Motives', which could easily be a Jack Johnson number.

It's unlikely that there are many non-compilation releases that would see roots-influenced pieces interrupted by a turn at hip-hop, but that's exactly what happens here with 'Sometimes', a solid if unspectacular track that shows another string to the bow.  It is followed by a stand-out moment of the album, 'Shake', a mid-tempo acoustic affair that has the sort of chorus that instantly banishes cobwebs and makes the world seem a brighter place.  This exemplifies what Walk Off The Earth are about - making organic and fun music - and even if this isn't your cup of tea, checking out their video catalogue of covers is hugely recommended.  You'll see a group of talented musicians for whom thinking outside the box is the norm and usually the results are delightful.
