Bag Raiders – Shooting Stars

One of my favorite tracks got the video treatment.  Been loving this tune for sometime and the video is a fun showcase of Southern California which features the dancing machine, Keith Apicary.

Bag Raiders – Sunlight (ft. Dan Black)

Bag Raiders has just released their full length self-titled album today, which you can preview here.  Off this release is track two, Sunlight featuring an AudioDrums favorite on vocals, Dan Black.  It’s an upbeat affair with a poppier vocal delivery for Dan Black.

And back in 2009, Bag Raiders track “Shooting Stars (ft. Ted Rhys from Ted & Francis) made my best of list at the number 2 spot.
