AF THE NAYSAYER - Status (Music Video)



AF THE NAYSAYER Status (Music Video)

This is my second music video. Here's what Tiny Mix Tapes had to say about it:
Lousiana-based mindkiller AF THE NAYSAYER is doing just that all over the east coast right now, sharing his brand of lurching, head-nodding beat-craft from NOLA to NYC. His brand is the particular headspace between G-funk and that west coast technicolor instrumentalism that Adult Swim helped proliferate through the Fly Los and Spazzkids of the world. With “Status,” AF let’s the rhythm break into a DJ Shadow sort of crunch; the loop zones out into warbling synths as the ride descends into sublime, chill enviros. Scope the grained-out video above that sees the track backing a timeless ritual.

AF THE NAYSAYER - Sunday (Music Video)



AF THE NAYSAYER Sunday (Music Video)

This is my very first music video. Here's what Vanguard Red Magazine had to say about it:
Taken from The Autodidact Instrumentals Vol. 1 (forthcoming) Made up of some beautifully shot and poised footage of grizzled freestyle BMX bikers swerving and pirouetting across smooth concrete floors inside a large car-park building, the Tyler Russell directed video clip for ‘Sunday’ by slow-burning southern (US) beat artiste AF The Naysayer sits in perfect contrast to the synthetic vibe music palette he paints with the throughout the song. Finding those restorative moments of calm in otherwise unsettled times, it’s yet another compelling work of complete art from a musical talent deserving of substantially greater acclaim.
