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.
Broken Bells wiki
Here’s the first single “The High Road” (download after the jump)…
Peace, and broken love…
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.
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.
Mr Hudson is having a remix contest for his next single Anyone But Him. The song is from his debut solo album Straight No Chaser on Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint. It’s an incredible album but is only (legally) available in the homeland (read UK) currently. It gets released here tomorrow according to wikipedia though I can’t find really any other information on it. Please find a way to get it and immerse yourself in heartache.
If you’ve got what it takes you could feature on Mr Hudson’s next single ‘Anyway But Him’, which is set to be released in the new year – Kanye West features on the album version but it could be YOU on the digital release.
Mr Hudson is looking for fresh UK MCs to record their original verses onto an instrumental of the track. Whoever lays down the sickest 16 bars will get the chance to hit the studio with Mr Hudson and will feature on the song which will be digitally released on March 15th.
1. Download the ‘Anyone But Him’ MP3 Instrumental for free by registering your email address in the box below.
2. Write & Record your original rap over the Instrumental.
3. Submit your finished track to Mr Hudson’s Dropbox (see Right)
The entries will be judged by Mr Hudson & the best verses will be posted on Mr Hudson’s website & online profiles. The winner will get to record the final track in a professional studio with Mr Hudson.
You can enter as many times as you like.
Anyway, the remix contest says it is for UK emcees, but I feel like if a rapper from elsewhere in the world submits something and it’s super ill…why would they deny it?? The original track features a Kanye West verse (which is dope in its own right and I don’t understand why they’d change it?..but)
So in the light of hope for the extension of personal expression…find the instrumental here and record your best translation of self absorbed jealousy in 16 bars.
Peace and al green love…because.
peace and flashing lights love.
I couldn’t decide if it would be more cliche to not pay tribute on here, or to say something. I guess the one thing i can say is he is the greatest solo artist of this modern day. Whether you grew up on his music directly or not…you must understand, pop music is what is today and was yesterday because of Michael Jackson. Him as a performer, a singer, video producer, song writer, artist. He had the greatest individual impact on modern music and pop culture.
They asked, “Will their be another Beatles?” There was, it was Michael Jackson, and he was one man. Crazy.
Here’s the first and only (of a shit ton for sure) dedication i will likely post on here.
The Game, Diddy, Chris Brown, Boyz II Men – Better On the Other Side
My only problem is, Diddy makes everything cheesy and lame. But i guess it’s still cool. Everything else about it feels at least semi-genuine.
I was at work and we decided to put on some MJ (for nostalgic tribute i suppose)…Man In The Mirror was the first song to come on. I about cried. God damnit all.
Be on the lookout for new MJ music. I read that a few months ago he said he has over 100 songs recorded that will be released posthumously to support his kids. It feels sick…possibly too soon to say, but i’m looking forward it.
Peace, and greatest love to MJ.
