Down-tempo/hip-hop producer Derek Dumont earned props from national critics for his production of "Mia Wallace" and "Number 16" from Wiz Khalifa's 2012 mixtape release, Taylor Allderdice. Well, prior to those placements, Dumont could often be found at the Shadow Lounge's open mic showcase. As he's seen playing in this new music video, Dumont is never far from his MPC drum machine. In the new video, "Home Sweet Home," Dumont is seen stopping by some of his favorite spots in Pittsburgh, such as the legendary Jerry's Record Store. The video was directed by Vernacular Observatory and features apparel by ISVERA.

Today, we're premiering a brand-new video from Bluebird Midwest. If you like it, feel free to check Roger out tomorrow night at Brillobox; Bluebird Midwest is playing there on a bill with Eureka Birds and Horse Or Cycle, in a show put on by the local music blog Draw Us Lines.

A couple months ago, I told you all about The Long Time Darlings. This week, we're premiering the band's brand-new video, for the song "Downtown Sugar." It's directed by Chris Lockerman, who's done a number of other local music vids. When last we talked with frontman Brett Staggs, he said his dream was for "things to get out of hand." In this delightfully ridiculous video, they seemingly have.
The Long Time Darlings play this Saturday, Feb. 18, at Club Cafe; it's the late show (10:30) and Molehill and Casino Bulldogs (who are releasing a record) play as well. Without further ado:
