Every so often new music pops on my radar and I just absolutely must signal-boost. “Ungodly Hour” is one such tune that calls for “Crank it Up” treatment.
Seriously: this tune has such an addictive chorus-hook that you’ll be caught, filleted and served for dinner before you even realize.
Sparse, kinetic, futuristic video directed by Alfred Marroquín and R&B duo’s title track written by C. Bailey, H. Bailey, Guy Lawrence & Howard Lawrence. Purchase info available here. 🎹
Will Pollock is a perpetually crabby New York City escapee based in Midtown Atlanta. He’s a freelance multimedia journalist, media analyst and author of two books (award-winning Pizza for Good & Leaving Triscuit), with more on the way.
In 2001, Will earned his Masters from The Medill School of Journalism, graduating with highest honors from the magazine sequence. As permanent member of Journalism’s National Honors Society, he’s been active in monitoring, writing and blogging about media and journalism ever since he graduated.
Obsessed with good storytelling and journalistic excellence, Will uses snark, humor and reason to distill dumb shit and make it fun. He’s a seeker/maker of non-consensus news, and helps you cure crankies by finding the nut in every story.
As for-profit media continues to fail us, it’s more important than ever to find reliable sources. Authentic storytelling exists—you just have to look for it. On this blog you’ll get ideas, not ideology. Sass with class. Reporting with rapport. Evidence with a touch of evil. You get the idea.
