These have been floating around Facebook for a little while, but I just caught ’em today: Video collages from Lenny Bryan, lead vocalist of the sadly defunct Ho-Hum who’s now recording as Mama, that preview tracks from his forthcoming album, “Chung.”

I think “Sea of Love,” above, is my favorite, visually and musically, but they’re all worth checking out. The title track sort of reminds me of this Justin Vernon side-project, but better and if Arthur Russell were singing.


I caught a little of Self Defence Sistem’s debut set last night. It was rad and similarly visually arresting. At one point they sampled Ho Hum’s “Til the Cows Come Home.” Maybe a remix of Mama is in order?
