"Directed by Jameson Mangan, the video is an eye-popping kaleidoscopic collage that finds Bootsy and his collaborators breezing through the upbeat funk jam. The psychedelic visuals are put to particularly perfect effect when Castro appears to unleash his dazzling guitar solo." - Rolling Stone (READ HERE)

"Directed by Jameson Mangan, the video captures the song’s essence perfectly, taking the viewer on a colorful journey through time and space that evokes every emotion imaginable. While the video’s theme is, of course, the passage of time, Mangan highlights its relativity, juxtaposing images of prehistoric creatures alongside a disco beach party, or astronauts floating through Ancient Mayan edifices. The very idea of a linear time structure is thrown away in favor of a less tangible interpretation of the concept. Aside from the interplay between the song’s meaning and the abstract imagery in the video, “Timebomb” comes at a perfect time, given the current global climate." - Live For Live Music (READ HERE)

"The prog-fusion rockers provide an eccentric visual compendium in the official music video for their new single, “Think,” where a dynamic array of blissful visuals, symmetry, and clear-hearted expression emerges.

Today we premiere a dynamic animated video for “Sundown,” from the forthcoming record. Banjo player Torrin Daniels tells Relix, “When I finished this song, I had been working on this riff for quite a while in a sort of banjo-metal fashion. I wrote the lyrics during those “peak quarantine” days in the Spring of 2020, and the verses definitely reflect my mental state at the time. The phrases about time receding and the hourglass running slow reference the elasticity of time, and how our minds can warp when we’re confined to one space physically. I think almost everyone can relate to that now.” - Relix (READ HERE)

“New Orleans funk powerhouse Dumpstaphunk has released ‘Where Do We Go From Here,’ their first full-length in seven years, and undeniably the most powerful and politically pointed album of their career.

“The clip, directed/produced by Dani Barbieri and starring Chris Brouwers as the Frasco Eggplant and Casey Dworkin as the Peach, follows the couple through the highs and lows of cohabitation in Brooklyn in the age of COVID. Day by day, they learn to live together, learn to live with themselves and, eventually, help each other rediscover the outside world once again." - Live For Live Music​ (READ HERE)

“The “Plug” video features footage from various 2019 Big Something concerts. Mangan put it together in a way that takes viewers on a psychedelic trip in and out of the band’s shows. “Like the visuals in the video, the lyrics to this song are kind of abstract and deal with illusions we create in our minds,” explained Big Something’s Nick MacDaniels. “I think it can be interpreted a lot of different ways but for me personally it’s about the struggle to hold on to reality within yourself.” - JamBase (READ HERE)

“Along with the album’s release, Dumpstaphunk has also shared a new music video for the title track. As frontman/keyboardist Ivan Neville explained in a statement along with the track’s initial release, “’Where Do We Go From Here’ really comes more from my perspective on life in general, than being specifically about Katrina or the unprecedented events of the last 6 months. “The song remains an optimistic point of view towards facing the challenges of the future and the unknown.”” - Live For Live Music (READ HERE)

Throughout the 52:15 minute album, fans are greeted with the familiar imagery found on the Escape videos, which have included performance footage from the livestreams. Edited together as a cohesive whole, the album acted as the band’s first full-length studio effort since 2018’s The Otherside. The new video shared on Thursday was co-produced by BIG Something alongside Jameson Mangan, and features a mix of grainy, retro-inspired outer space visuals combined with some of the song’s lyrics." - Live For Live Music (READ HERE)

“There is a unique phenomenon that occurs when one sees black and white footage of the Civil Rights movement that gives the impression that these events were so long ago. In reality, however, many of the crusaders who fought for equal rights are still alive, and this effect only serves to further the antiquated notion that the struggle for equality was resolved back in the 1960s. But this psychological illusion is dispelled as the footage switches to present-day video of Black Lives Matter protests from the summer of 2020, also presented in black and white.


I was looking for a creative way to frame this footage, both literally and metaphorically,” director Jameson Mangan said on Instagram. “I was aiming to compare two separate movements in two very different times in order to highlight just how far we have left to go as Americans. That’s when I stumbled across some old stock footage of two men demonstrating optical illusions.” - Live For Live Music (READ HERE)

“‘Where Do We Go From Here’ is a sharply relevant statement, even more-so than the group anticipated during writing and recording sessions just prior to the unprecedented events of the last year.
