Broken Bells…James Mercer x Danger Mouse

I’m so excited about this…super collab between James Mercer (from The Shins) and Danger Mouse (from Gnarls Barkley and producer of The Grey Album). This is seriously one of the greatest combinations i’ve dreamed would never happen. The album is due to come out March 9, 2010. Be ready for a storm.

vids…OK Go | Lowry

These videos have blown my mind…i know must repair it and take artistic action…

1. OK Go – “WTF?”

this is right inside my doorway. take an effect and play with it. have fun and orchestrate your art. that’s what i’m trying to do…

2. Lowry – “Whiskey”
Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about "Lowry – Whiskey", posted with vodpod


this is a pretty fresh indie band i just discovered through the Guilt By Association Vol. 2 project in which they covered “Africa” by Toto. i feel like the video tells the story pretty well with not too much performance shots and not too much “couple” shots. the video is for a project called 99DollarMusicVideos.com…i think they accomplished it better than any one else i’ve seen on the site.

peace, and videLoVEs.


passion pit: sleepyhead…S>O>T>W>1

Song Of The Week: 1st Edition!
Here’s a great song, from a very good album, with my favorite music video right now!
Passion Pit – Sleepyhead

I love the use of samples, sped up. Plus the dudes voice is GREAT (you just might need to take a little time to get used to it)…i love it though. This is wonderful music, and it is what indie music is right now! Really a great song…enjoy!!!

Peace, and sleepyhead love.

btw…these Song Of The Week editions, if you don’t get it right away, that’s okay. the point is to provide you with songs you might or might not know about, but i think they’re both important and really rad for particular reasons.


wasalu jaco…japanese cartoon

I knew it. I think most of us were sure. But it’s a’fish, Wasalu Jaco, a.k.a. Lupe Fiasco, a.k.a. Percival Fats, pseudo-european english accent and all, is the lead singer and mind-horse of indie punk rock band Japanese Cartoon.

It’s being made pretty clear though, that Lupe (the rapper) is NOT the lead vocalist. In interviews he’s been denying this for a while, and I guess we still forgot to peal back the layers of Wasalu the Onion. Never underestimate this cat.
Peace, and japanese cartoon love.
