(CBS)- It's Thursday, and do you know what that means!? Time for the 2nd installment of "The Feedback"!
I'm going to start of this week with a song that dropped a little over two weeks ago, but now has the new video above to go along with it. With a nice summertime beat and the vocals of Dev to go along with verses by Shwayze and the Cataracs, this song is beyond catchy, yet still substantive. The Cataracs Ft. Dev are one of my favorite groups in the game right now, so if you would like to hear more from them, click HERE. In all, it is a good song that will have you nodding your head and singing along while the clever video just adds to its allure.
Next up we have my favorite music video of the week. The song, "Keep Your Head Up" by Andy Grammer, delivers a simple yet important message, and with another feel-good beat, Grammer is able to showcase his impressive vocals. But the star of the show here is the video, as it is interactive, allowing you to dictate the entire course of the experience (and even sound). With a total of 7 choices requesting your input, you have the ability to have a new experience every time you watch the video. So, be sure to Keep Your Head Up, and see if you can find Rainn Wilson's cameos in the video (I've found him twice so far).
You may remember Norwegian Recycling from last week's edition of the Feedback, and if so, you know I am a big fan. Every time he releases a new track he increases his grip on the title (that I've given him) as the master of the mashup. What I really like about this mashup, something he has been doing recently, is that he tries to maintain the lyrical concepts of the main track. For this mash, "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None The Richer is used as the track's concept. Other songs used in the mashup are:
Bruno Mars - Just The Way You Are
Maroon 5 - She Will Be Loved
Savage Garden - Crash And Burn
Jason Derulo - In My Head
Jason Derulo - What If

Last up, we have a great and brand new video and song from the famed film/audio remix artist Pogo. From the YouTube page, Pogo explains:
"This is the video for my track "Bloom", a patchwork of vocals and musical chords from various Disney films. I recorded the harp sample from "Sleeping Beauty", and a series of chords from "A.I: Artificial Intelligence" to form the base of the chorus. The vocals are sampled from Disney films, each of which are illustrated in this video."
I'm not personally crazy about the audio here, but the video lines up so well the entire time that it makes up for that entirely.
Thanks for reading all, if you would like more music updates throughout the week, be sure to check me out over on NotSomeKid (I post as Adidef) and tune back in next Thursday for the 3rd installment of "The Feedback." Cheers!
