HIP Video Promo presents: Bruce Sudano releases nostalgic music video for "Back in the Neighborhood" on The Big Takeover

Bruce Sudano

Bruce Sudano – Spirals Vol. 1

He's resigned to the inevitability of the passage of time, and steeled himself against changes yet to come.

NEW YORK, NY, USA, July 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Watch "Back in the Neighborhood" by Bruce Sudano on The Big Takeover

For nearly six decades, Bruce Sudano has maintained his faith in the expressive power of pop-rock. The veteran songwriter and guitarist sees pop music as more than just a place for big sounds and big beats: to Sudano, it's a vehicle for big ideas, too. That was true in the late sixties when he topped the charts with the spirited Alive N Kickin', and it was just as true in the seventies and eighties, when Sudano composed country-pop for Dolly Parton, electro-funk and disco for Donna Summer, and sheer FM-radio gold for Michael Jackson. In his solo career, Sudano addresses subjects that most popular artists won't: the difficulties of daily life, common human experiences, and even the rude fact of mortality. He sings it all in a bright, flexible voice that foregrounds his compassion and incisive intelligence.

Spirals, Vol. 1… Not A Straight Line To Be Found, his illustratively-titled new set, is an Americana album, but there's nothing staid about it. It's Americana animated by the spirit of pop: a version of folk-rock that's immediate, and communicative, and sometimes downright danceable. Sudano favors acoustic guitar, but the sense of rhythm and soul that made him a natural collaborator for Donna Summer, the Jacksons, and Michael Omartian is apparent in every measure he plays. And as always, his lyrics are trenchant, pointed, and emotionally evocative, and cover much more territory than you'd ever expect from a three and a half minute song. "Back In The Neighborhood" is a sharp-eyed reflection on Sudano's upbringing in mid-20th Century Brooklyn. Although the singer allows himself some nostalgia for what we've lost, he's resigned to the inevitability of the passage of time, and steeled himself against changes yet to come.

A track this heady – and emotionally provocative – demands a video to match. Sudano has delivered with a clip that pairs his magnetizing solo live performance with gorgeous footage of Brooklyn in the 1950s and 1960s. The vintage signs, old storefronts, grungy sidewalks, old cars, and magnificent, slightly-faded images of the bridge will play as a revelation to those who know what these streets look like today. Sudano's world is submerged, but it isn't entirely lost. Echoes of the "Neighborhood" he knew are audible in modern Brooklyn. If we listen close enough, we're sure to catch them, understand better where we've been, and maybe where we're going.

The Bodhi Mantra, a New "blue" Vinyl LP from Howard Givens and Craig Padilla, Now Available from Spotted Peccary Music

blue album cover

Using pure organic tones within their many analog, digital, and modular synthesizers, Howard Givens and Craig Padilla have created hypnotic and meditative music to stir the heart, embrace the soul, and free the mind.

Howard Givens of Spotted Peccary Music, releases new vinyl album – The Bodhi Mantra – with Craig Padilla.

Synthesizer bliss and harmonic music arrive with The Bodhi Mantra, a meditative music release pulsing with sound and the good vibes of collaboration.

I believe that this whole 'conversation' of music is complete when the listener then becomes involved, creating their own vision, their own experience with the music.”

— Howard Givens

PORTLAND, OR, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — That sense of déjà vu you may be feeling is there for good reason, signaling yet another sublime collaboration between Howard Givens and Craig Padilla, (their third) and this time there is a stunning blue vinyl LP to show for it. A complement to any collection, The Bodhi Mantra is a formative work of deeply immersive music — harmonic, somewhat melodic, and occasionally rhythmic — that shares the idea of an individual looking within one’s identity to recognize the power of the soul – the true self, and to continuously reach above and beyond the limitations that we have come to believe in, recognizing the greatness of that existence.

The album is available now on Spotted Peccary Music in vinyl LP disc format, and also in 24-BIT AUDIOPHILE, CD QUALITY LOSSLESS, MP3 and streaming formats. The LP is a factory-sealed deluxe 140 gram 12" vinyl record of THE BODHI MANTRA, pressed on teal and blue splatter-colored vinyl with premium polylined sleeve, and color insert with liner notes about the music and its inspiration. Myriad consumer sales and streaming links to Spotify, Apple, Amazon, iTunes, Tidal, Deezer and more are available at this link: https://orcd.co/thebodhimantra

With this third collaboration, Givens and Padilla continue a musical journey that follows the concepts introduced in their previous album, Being of Light (2017). Created together in studio last Fall 2019, the duo embrace pure organic tones within their many analog, digital, and modular synthesizers; with intention, this duo has created hypnotic and meditative music to stir the heart, embrace the soul, and free the mind; music that is based on their appreciation of experiencing the perception of consciousness. Delicate, breath-like pulses set an intention of mindful solemnity, punctuated by moments of fulfillment and enlightenment, and underlining discovery of the ultimate relationship with the one true self.

The music, the method and the message, are intertwined, in a way, according to Padilla. “Howard and I continue to grow as a musical duo every time we create music, both solo and as a duo. This new album evolved from our personal journey of music, which is based on our appreciation of the way we have been experiencing the perception of consciousness. This is The Bodhi Mantra. Bodhi is a Sanskrit word translated as 'enlightenment' or 'awakening' which relates to a Buddhist concept, wherein Bodhi is synonymous with the state of nirvana, being freed from hate, greed and ego. The Mantra is the musical expression of this serene offering. We represented this idea in the music by making it sound warm and peaceful; hypnotic and uplifting.”

Givens, who is a founder and co-owner of Spotted Peccary Music, shares “There’s a powerful experience that comes from the synergy of working together especially when those moments of an unspoken, mutual tapping into a stream-of-consciousness flow happens. That’s when the magic really happens, at least from my perspective. I believe that this whole “conversation” of music is complete when the listener then becomes involved, creating their own vision, their own experience with the music. So ultimately it’s the goal of my work, with audio, composition, visual art, etc. and the goal of Spotted Peccary Music, to create and present as transparent an expression of the art form as possible, hopefully inviting a deepening space for the listener to participate in.”

The Bodhi Mantra was mastered by Howard Givens, and the vinyl format arrives inside an exquisite package designed by Daniel Pipitone, with a richly printed jacket and sleeve combination.

Spotted Peccary Music, a Portland-based label, also launched its popular annual Summer Sale on Bandcamp today, which includes The Bodhi Mantra, offering its catalog at 25% off with the code “summer25”. (https://ambientelectronic.bandcamp.com/album/the-bodhi-mantra)
