NEW ATLANTA MUSIC: Rigel Gemini

‘I Can’t’ video re-released after being removed on YouTube

I CAN'T: The cover.

After the release on YouTube last month of transplanted Atlantan Rigel Gemini’s first music video, the femme-forward “I Can’t,” it was abruptly pulled from the site with no explanation.

Featuring Gemini, Alyssa Edwards, Gia Gunn and a varied cast of Atlanta influencers, friends and family, the video is set as a Zoom-style party. With a musical throwback to Technotronic and Blondie, the celebration of queer and trans culture and community captures the cast dancing, lip-syncing, and spreading the sassy message of “I Can’t,” all while the individuals follow COVID-19 guidelines and safely shelter-in-place in during the filming. A trash-glam pastiche of queer and trans eye candy, the video was reaching over 110,000 views on YouTube and over 100,000 Spotify plays, when it was taken off YouTube with no explanation, and the momentum it was building from Atlanta to Australia plummeted.

In a press release, Gemini admits to being devastated that something he poured so much time and effort into — not to mention the substantial amount of savings he put into it —  could be yanked off the internet because of the complaint of one troll without him receiving a warning or given a chance to appeal the decision. He says he has heard from others posting on YouTube of similar complaints and removals targeted at LGBTQ+ content creators.

“I was shocked. The video was removed a few days before my birthday so that was extra sad. I had spent weeks preparing the song and building the video with a cast of 15 amazing people, including some of my icons and queer and trans people of color from the community. The video was a celebration and it was getting such a positive response from the queer and trans community for spreading joy in a time of darkness (during) the coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19 quarantine. It was crazy to me how much power these social media companies have over the lives of artists and creators… with the click of a button. No rules were broken, nothing was done incorrectly. It was unfair and unfortunate.

“A troll who made themselves known to me did not like the video because, in my opinion, they are homophobic and transphobic. They called the video ‘sexualized and inappropriate.’ … YouTube never even allowed me to appeal or provide my side of the story. So I have decided to re-release the video myself. I can’t get caught up in the upset of the moment, I just need to try to bring this video back into the world.”

After being down for nearly a month, the video is now available on these streaming platforms: Vimeo, Dailymotion, Facebook Watch, and Patreon. And even Youtube has allowed it to be reposted, with it garnering over 5000 plays in less than two days.

  string(1986) "The Atlanta-based Rare Birds release their first EP officially Monday, June 15, but you can hear it here now. The four-piece band includes Brandon Neal, vocals and guitar; Shawn Thacker, drums and percussion; Joe Abramson, bass and vocals; and Andrew Cylar, guitar.

The quartet creates original music inspired by the best of ‘70s rock, blues, gospel and soul, following the likes of Humble Pie, early (really early) Fleetwood Mac, Savoy Brown, and Wishbone Ash, groups that were the cornerstone of much British blues in the late ‘60s and ‘70s, recalling their gritty approach and ringing guitar solos. And, just as the Allman Brothers Band drank from the same bottle, you can hear echoes of Duane and Gregg in Rare Birds’s songs.

First getting together during the blood moon of 2018, Rare Birds formed  with members of Truckadelic, 68-75, A.R.S. and Southern Gothic. The new EP was engineered and recorded by Jeff Tomei (Ray Charles, Mother's Finest, Smashing Pumpkins, Beastie Boys), with additional tracking by Keith Evans. Justin Senker, a founding Rare Bird, plays bass on “Gold Plated People” with noted musician/producer, Marty Kearns on piano. Although the EP is yet to be released — that occurs Monday, June 15 — it is already receiving airplay in the United Kingdom.

Moray Stuart of Plunger Music UK describes Rare Birds as “stop/start Zep-meets-The Doors supercharged roadhouse blues,” with (the video) “Gold Plated People” “a touch of ABB jazz-funk sophistication: its very danceable groove topped with two surprisingly raw and fierce outings for the guitar (and to Plunger’s ears a Bettsesque three-note twiddle!)” He ends the review writing, “Rare Birds is a very tasty hors d’oeuvre for hopefully more to come soon!” That’s something else we can all agree on.

The entire Rare Birds EP may be downloaded on iTunes, Deezer, GooglePlay, Amazon Music, and Tik Tok, or,  give it a listen on Pandora, Spotiify, and Souncloud."

The new single is a taste of what to expect from their upcoming album. The new song is the perfect way to kick off the summer and is sure to make you feel sexy and at your best. The visual to “American Dream” will stream tonight on the Big Ass Telethon, hosted by Wussy & SFQP, at 8 p.m. The visual showcases the "debutante dream pop” sound that Clementine cites to be the basis of LCFP's music.

Lady Clementine is using music to shed light on sex work and, specifically, her experience while dancing at The Cheetah Lounge. Atlanta's LCFP flourished last year with the release of their debut EP, Clementine's Season, followed by a series of music videos for the EP. LCFP received recognition for their music video “Clementine Season x East Coast” from the Macoproject film festival and the Atlanta Film Festival 2020.

The LCFP will soon announce new plans and new ways to connect with them.

The new single can be heard here and streamed on Apple Music, Spotify, and SoundCloud."

  string(1027) "Chelsea Shag sets a new groove on her first single in two years, “Time To Get Strange,” out today on Madison Records. The song blends pop sensibilities with a decidedly R&B feel that grooves and moves.

Canadian-born and Atlanta-based, Shag cites music of the ’60s and how it helped to frame the struggles of that era — the Civil Rights movement, the political turmoil, and a country steeped in anger over the drawn-out Vietnam War — as inspiration for helping her express her own convictions at a time when this country is starting to face many of the same problems … again. Spreading her message of love through music is more important to her now than ever before, “I just want to be myself for others,” Shag says.

She’s doing exactly that in the studio, as the new single attests. Shag notes, “I've finally found my stride as a songwriter and producer in the studio and my sound is more me than ever.” Listen to “Time To Get Strange” here, or, through your favorite streaming service here."
