Adrian Younge Presents Venice Dawn “Lovely Lady” Music Video ~ Waxpoetics

“Get familiar with…” recently Tweeted by the Waxpoetics team directs you to a video post showcasing the musical styles of Adrian Younge. Shot in a community setting, the lifestyle of collecting records is a notable backdrop for this nostalgic video from the 1960’s. The beauty of the outdoor landscape blended with venue scenes set the tone for this story. Could this be the prelude to another black film? Recently re-released by Wax Poetics Records this project represents the soulful music that the label is known for. We’ll have to stay tuned to see whats going with April. As the video states… “To Be Continued”.

“The Something About April album depicts the trials and tribulations of an interracial couple, circa 1968,” says producer/musician Adrian Younge, adding, “it’s a concept album. Each song chronicles certain moments within the overall story.” On this album, out now on Wax Poetics Records, Younge collaborated with Motown guitar legend Dennis Coffey for the old-school soul track “Lovely Lady,” which, says Younge, “depicts the point in time when the couple actually meets. She is shy and falls in love; she constantly dreams about being affectionate with her male companion. Her candid dreams take her from slow dancing, to shower scenes with him. In writing this song, I sought to stimulate that old feeling of romance: a kind of romance that was seldom questioned. Some call it ‘love at first sight.’ Hopefully, our project audio-visually captures this notion.”
