Please, do not press "play" on the video two paragraphs down. You're going to anyway, of course, and, well, that's up to you. But don't say we didn't warn you: You will not get "Dirty Hands" by A2VT out of your head for the rest of the day, and maybe the week.

Then again, that's exactly the point of the song. (And we're kidding. You should absolutely watch the video, earworm-y hooks and all. Go ahead, we'll wait… )

When the music teacher at Edmunds Middle School in Burlington emailed parents to suggest that families make music videos together to pass the time, professional tenor Adam Hall got right to work with his daughter Ruby, 13, and son Edward, 9. The trio transformed the Proclaimers’ “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” into “The Corona Virus Song (5 Feet).”

The hilarious piece of work on YouTube  made it to the local evening news the same day Hall emailed it to the music teacher.

In these troubled, turbulent times, it's likely you've found yourself thinking, Self, you know what I could really go for? A gorgeous, rock-tinged, soul-snuggling new single from Dwight & Nicole, that's what. Also, at the risk of getting greedy, maybe a cool new video, too.

Well, guess what? On Monday, July 24, the Burlington-based trio released "Wait," the A-side for a forthcoming  45rpm release. Today, the band unveiled the video for said single. Let's just jump right in, shall we?

Indian pop star Shael may not have a huge following in the Green Mountains. But what local fans the  Punjabi singer does have probably noticed something awfully familiar about his latest video, "Meri Jaaan." That's because it was shot in Burlington.

Since leaving Vermont for Brooklyn, the band members have shed much of their earlier, folksy leanings and embraced psychedelia for their 2016 debut effort, Callisto. Alpenglow take their farthest trip over the electro fence with  "Flicker Flutter."

Local soul and blues man Dave Keller is really, really happy to share his latest album, Right Back Atcha. In 2014, Keller released the intimate and personal Soul Changes, a self-described "divorce album." Though it was fueled by personal misfortune — largely due to the crumbling of a 17-year relationship — he snagged a Blues Music Award nomination for it.  Flash forward to now, and Keller is ready to have some fun again.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won the New Hampshire primary in convincing fashion earlier this week — superdelegates be damned. But ol' Bernardo didn't hog the media love for himself. In share-the-wealth fashion befitting a democratic socialist, he shared the national and local media spotlight with a number of Vermonters in the wake of the primary.  

Here's a quick roundup of those getting some shine this week.

Vermont musicians were featured prominently at Sanders events, official and otherwise, in New Hampshire, most notably Kat Wright and Brett Hughes and Dwight & Nicole. A picture of Hughes and Wright made the print and digital editions of the Washington Post. And Wright, Hughes and Dwight Ritcher — aka the "Bernie Sanders Singers" — were the subject of the short New York Times video below.

The news about Alan Newman buying a stake in Higher Ground ate up most of this week's Soundbites column, so a few items got bumped. With the weekend nearly here, let's take a quick look at those bits and pieces.

Last fall, local experimental music composer Greg Davis served as the first-ever sonic artist-in-residence at Champlain College. As part of that endeavor, he curated a music series called the Signals Series. It featured notable experimental composers from around the country, including Jeffre Cantu, Ben Vida and Davis himself.

The series was such a success that Davis and Champlain College are bringing it back for the spring semester. The first installment is tonight, February 5, at the Lounge Gallery in the Center for Communication and Creative Media at Champlain College. This one presents Montréal duo Le Révélateur. Here's what you can expect, according to the artists themselves:
