Sometimes life feels like a perpetual summer for the boys of BFA. “Funk With Us” is a dose of that ethos, the first drop from the crew’s forthcoming Windows Down, due this — you guessed it — summer.

Armed with a press pass for the weekend, 206UP sent our intrepid photographer Rafael Ochoa into the Sasquatch! fray. He emerged exhausted and sunburned, but triumphant in his efforts to grab some dope shots of Seattle hip-hop artists doing their thing. Check it out below.
In advance of their Locals Only show coming up this Saturday night at Neumos, Brothers From Another (featuring Mario Sweet crooning and Nima Skeemz and Elan Wright on production) present a synth-heavy, bouncy pop ditty, “Love Yourself.” A musical pat on the back in preparation for summer.
Good things happen in empty parking lots on rainy Seattle nights. Brothers From Another come a little harder than you’re used to — albeit not without a dose of their trademark playfulness — in “Windows Down” featuring fellow Seattle rap youth Dave B. From BFA’s recent 3-Peat EP. Video directed by Jon Holman, track produced by Gus Goldman and Nima Skeemz.
Seattle media giant Miss Casey Carter celebrated her company’s four years in existence last Friday night at Neumos. Gifted Gab, Brothers From Another, Bruce Leroy, Tre Ross, Leezy Soprano, and Sneak Guapo all shared the bill (in addition to some surprise guests). Photographer Rafy Ochoa paid camera respects for 206UP.

Old enough to know that the youth is wasted; young enough to not care. Brothers From Another stay breezy yet again in their clip for “Blame It On My Youth,” directed by Jon Holman. Track devised by Nima Skeemz.
This is tight. Brothers From Another bring a dope concept to an effortlessly fresh video for their new track, “Running Home.” BFA play genial Love Scouts in what appears to be a beautiful aligning of souls between two nameless people. A little Wes Anderson, a little low-budget DIY charm — it’s the nimble BFA crew making it all look easy, as usual. Video directed by Jon Holman, track produced by Nima Skeemz.
Under the best conditions, life is simpler in the summer. Who better to tell it than Brothers From Another?
