NMM SoundBytes: The Stone MGs Drop Music Video for “I Need You”

Austin TX based garage rockers, The Stone MGs, know a thing or two about rock n’ roll. In the vein of modern rock acts like Kings of Leon and The Black Keys, The Stone MGs blend old school R&B and soul into a new rock sound creating something that is equal parts Rolling Stones and Artic Monkeys. Pop oriented hooks and a throwback vibe mean that this is a band that oozes “cool”, while making you tap your toe.

Their latest single, “I Need You”, dropped with an accompanying music video earlier this month. The video is by Nalani Williams and is truly unique. The lyrical content is far deeper than a lot of today’s radio hits, detailing the power of addiction. Powerful lyrics and upbeat rock really work together, as evidenced here. Check out the tune and get this holiday week started with some good ole rock and/or roll.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
