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.


questlove…sandwich ep

via: nahright

Sandwiches are the sets they play before and after commercial breaks on Late Night.

In honor of making 1000 of those original compositions, Questlove liberated 22 of them on twitter and All The Way Live compiled it into an EP.

The Roots – Sandwiches EP

also. click on the twitter above, then click on the swift.fm link and listen and read the descriptions to each track…questo really knows music and it’s so interesting to see what inspires him and how it makes him feel and think.

peace, and be well rounded love.


wale…kanye tracks that never tracked

Wale talks about 4 (potential bp3) tracks Kanye flew in to play for Jay-Z before a show. he wanted a couple of them, specifically “A Star Is Born” for the intro to Attention Defecit (in stores now!! it’s pretty ill!!!)…i would have liked it better with Wale, don’t really like the Jay version HONESTLY.

Kanye producing “Let The Money Fall” for Wale, KiD CuDi, Drake…dope. could still come into fruition??

peace, and remember to smile, love.


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.


M&M (eminem)…new old music

I picked up 4 never before heard (until today) unreleased exclusive raw ill…ok sorry…”M&M” tracks.
Here’s a couple of goofy pictures to kick this post off. Features Eminem with producer Manix and partner in rhyme Chaos Kid (making up the group Soul Intent).


Eminem & Proof – Hammer vs. Vanilla (Bassmint Suckerin Rhyme)
It just keeps goin, haha. Here’s an explanation as to what “Suckerin Rhyme” was…

Basically, the ‘Suckerin Rhyme’ was a way for us to have fun by freestylin. We would record the sessions to play back later and laugh at. They were never intended to be released to the public. They were purely for our own amusement. The term ‘Suckerin Rhyme(s)’ was derived from an old-school hip-hip slang term called ‘Sucker M.C.’ which was used by rappers to describe someone who sucked, hence the title ‘Suckerin Rhyme’. So the attempt was to, in a humorous way, represent a wack or ‘Sucker M.C.’. That was the only thing premeditated about this stuff! So much of hip-hop was so serious in its competitiveness and this was a way for us to unwind and warm-up to do some serious music we had written and intended to release to the public. In retrospect, I think some of these tracks are entertaining enough in their own sense to be released to the public finally. Anyone who enjoys the spirit of spontaneity in music and humor – impromptu, improvisation, or ad-lib, which came to be coined in hip-hop as the ‘freestyle’ should hopefully find some degree of merit and entertainment in these moments captured on tape.. Enjoy! -love, Snafu

Eminem & Chaos Kid – Unrealistically Graphic
Eminem & Chaos Kid – Poo Butt
Eminem & Chaos Kid – Artificial Flavor
Funny cause he totes started off just effin around (Poo Butt?). Jokin and freestyling…now he’s being put at the top of Greatest Emcee lists. Dude was still ill…i wonder if he ever paid Big Daddy Kane for this style (ha!).
Peace, and exclusive love.

Supposed to be set up and feel like a movie. Hopefully no skits.
I think it’s a fail to put “Make Her Say” and “Day N Night” (the single version) on the album. He should revamp “Day N Night” and maybe put a new verse on, but “Make Her Say” should NOT be on there. We’ve already paid for the single, seen the video, it’s a nice little buzz internet song. For the most part, the album is going straight into iTunes anyways, so why would we want to pay for the song again? I’d much rather pay for a comparable song (or another one that is BETTER). I hope he reads this and makes an executive decision (ha!).
Still pumped for this none the less…but i’m givin him my thoughts when i meet the dude.
Peace, and man in the moon love.
