Was going to volunteer this afternoon at Rock The Cradle – a ROCK FEST for kids – but I’m buried in about 17 inches of snow and rising. So here’s to the little tikes that may be stuck at home like me – though, I don’t know if they’ll appreciate it as much as us 80’s kids.
JPOD the Beat Chef’s little EP of a thing, covers a good portion of the 80’s shows I grew up with, though there’s many more I wish I could see wobbled up like these. I can only imagine wompin’ around to these in the 80’s, but damn it would’ve been a fun time!/kinda […]
Never been much a fan of Khalifa, but now I see his appeal. The Five One take his original lyrics from “Never Been” and remix it to one laid back beat. But what makes this track is their use of Khalifa’s lyrics – chilled and served smooooth.
“They follow me everywhere my plane go”
I’m a little late on this Vday gift from Grieves & Budo, my own eat up all the time I had on the 14th, but I had to give ’em due credit.
“Pack It Up” is a soulful take on the duds we face on our quest for that “paper heart”. Check out the vid, it’s a good visual of Grieve’s lament.
Their LP, Together/Apart, should be dropping sometime this summer.
Bassnectar keeps impressing with all these dubstep remixes. I haven’t seen many dustep artists continually pull it off without trying to over embellish an already showy art.
This time he takes another classic, “Walk Like an Egyptian”, and dubsteps it to a modern vibe. It was done back sometime in ’03, but is still as fresh as ever.
Here’s a collection of my favorite love songs. The first four were really the driving force to make this list, but every one of ’em is sexy as hell. The list ranges from contemporary R&B to classic rock to trip-hop instrumentals and everything in-between. Although, all of them won’t be appreciated by everyone, I guarantee you’ll each find a gem of your own.
If I get enough response out of this, I’ll make up more of these love makin’ lists – there were many I couldn’t include due to lack of time. So tell me your favorites and what you want to be included on the next list, so we can find more love makin music together.
Lastly, this may not be a comprehensive list, but forget about what it doesn’t have and get into what it does. Thanks to all who helped with this!
Syfy’s Being Human just threw me for a curve. When Solid Gold‘s “Who You Gonna Run to” played on their fourth episode, “Wouldn’t It Be Nice (If We Were Human)”, I remember thinking to myself, no fucking way.
I’ve been a BIG Solid Gold fan for the past year now and I couldn’t have been more happy for them. I love when films & shows throw in some good music and Solid Gold is […]
Saw this on TV and instantly knew I’d heard this before. About one or two seconds later I knew it was Atmosphere. Googled “Be The Match Shaq commercial” and found out this was “Puppets” – never been good with names.
Enjoy and make sure to join the bone marrow registry.
As far as reports go, Damon Albarn & Jamie Hewlett, creators of Gorillaz, were bickering about each other’s dedication to the band. Jamie complained about Damon’s involvement with other projects and Damon about Jamie’s “party lifestyle”. Whatever the reasons may be, Gorillaz are on an extened vacation for now (euphemisms always help ease the pain). As saddened as I was when I heard the news, I tried to look at what they’ve given us.
Not only have the two created three groundbreaking albums, along with many side projects, they’ve also ushered in a new genre/sub-genre/style (whatever you wanna call it). I haven’t been the biggest Alt Rock fan over the past years, but Gorillaz and the few groups like them have helped me find a place to start in the clusterfuck of a sub-genre.
To honor my favorite cartoon band, here’s a mini memorial featuring a few of my favorites from each of their albums. Hit me up with your Gorillaz favorites in the comments below.
Last week Pretty Lights Music announced the creation of their new label’s website, featuring Paper Diamond, Break Science & Michal Menert as the label’s first signed acts. As if that’s not enough, now PL music is releasing seven never before released remixes, appropriately named Pretty Lights Unreleased 2010 Remixes.
The seven set of songs consist of a range of genres, but where the set shines is in the classic rock remixes. Pink Floyd’s “Time” & Steve Miller’s “Fly Like an Eagle” get straight electrofied to a new millennium vibe. The rest is still an amazing set to rage to – with Derek Vincent Smith, ya can never really go wrong.
I gotta admit what initially attracted me to this song was Coyote Kisses’ promoter, Abigail, who I thought produced it at the time. It’s hard to come by good female producers, if any, and a track like this with a female behind it would’ve been so damn sexy!
But after some digging around, I found the track was done by the male dominated duo, Coyote Kisses. I may have been a little let down at first, but after getting into their music, it could’ve been composed by a damn donkey for all I cared.
Since then I’ve listened to a handful of their work, but their Anthem still hits the hardest – although their other shit still blows me away. It isn’t just some dirty dubstep beat with overly coiled industrial grinds […]
