BFD Subsonic Artist Amp Live Releases New Video for Single “Penny Nickel Dime”

By Alyssa Pereira

Amp Live is releasing his latest solo project, Headphone Concerto on August 5, and it has a pretty classical twist. The album is structured like a traditional concerto in three distinct movements, meant to be listened to in three parts, and boasts guest appearances from Big Gigantic’s Dom, Eric Rachmany from Rebelution, and a mix of live classical instruments in a hip hop context.

If you caught Amp at this year’s BFD, you got a pretty good taste of it—he brought an electric cello on stage with him.

A long ways from his work with Zion I and his incredible Radiohead mixtape if In Rainbows (which you can download for free on his official site), Amp Live is giving his take on the role of a symphonic composer, incorporating drum machines, live instruments, singers and rappers into the new record.

In the meantime, Amp is releasing “Penny Nickel Dime,” a jazzy cut exploring the pitfalls of wealth.
