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.

Here’s the first single “The High Road” (download after the jump)…
Peace, and broken love…
Peace! If you’re in the Indianapolis area, stop by to check out InfeRed making an appearance at this open mic night.
Should be a good time, Red never fails to put on a ill live set. If you make it out, let us know what you think on here!
Peace, and open your heart, to love.
2nd Song of the Week…i guess it’s more song of the day, cause it’s just a day that i decide to post a dope song. but dig it…
Blackroc – On The Vista feat. Mos Def
This is so ill. I love mos…especially when he teams up with dope production. Just download this and support them when they drop…good shit.
peace, and soul bass love.

above, the video for the single “The Top” if you haven’t seen it already or are interested in what they sound like (commonly referred to as an updated Prince and Phil Collins..but don’t limit them)…
peace, and open your minds to good music love.
Drake feat. Eminem, Kanye West & Lil Wayne – Forever
Honestly…I think overall the vid is kind of boring. I dig certain parts but it moves a little slow for me.
I really don’t like Drake’s performance. Kanye’s is better, his pyro technics are pretty cool and I like how they die out toward the end. The LJ stuff thrown in is done pretty well in general (mainly just before wayne’s verse). I like Wayne’s performance enough. I like the red lighting, feels sort of drunk. Eminem’s performance is dope, even though not much happens…His verse is just way more interesting I guess. He just looks hungry when he spits…plus they feature Slaughterhouse (the crew…yes, including Royce!). Rumor has it the pieces are in place for a Slaughterhouse and Em track…I’d love to hear Royce and Em (bad meets evil) back together. I really like that last shot of Drake alot! It left a good taste in my eyesockets.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
What ya’ll opinions??
Peace, and forever love!
Oh…and in case you missed the post…here’s InfeRed’s debut music video for The Higher…

Update: Interesting, Lupe talks about his record company holding him back during a concert and not even 10 hours after a video of that popped up on YouTube (the one I posted above), they (WMG) removed it.
You can’t tell me that this is because of copyright reasons because all of the other live clips are still online, they just don’t want people to know what Lupe said. I wrote it all down though, so check it below!
Album Nr. 3, LASERS – Love Always Shines Every-time Remember 2 Smile.
I picked Lasers because Lasers are life, Lasers shine, Lasers are the future, Lasers are progression, Lasers are revolutionary, Lasers are NOT Losers!
Lasers are different, Lasers are weird, Lasers are eclectic, but Lasers are NOT Losers! We’re winners that’s what we are, we’re winners! All the freaks, all the ones that don’t know what they are, all the indecisive ones, We’re Not Losers, We Are Lasers!
This next record (Shining Down) is the first record off the new album and it’s a testament, it’s a testament to what you can do when people are holding you back.
My record company did not push this record at all but yet in it’s first week we sold like 30.000 copies…don’t be scared to put records like this on the radio, this is what we need! It’s not what they want, it’s what they need!
They need to know that it’s people on top that recognize what they do, that feel what they do, that are where they’re from, who don’t really care about money and none like that, who don’t care about fame, who don’t care about being on the internet in front of some stupid-ass camera talking about what they wore this morning and what they had for breakfast yesterday. Fuck all that!
We Are Lasers and we shine goddammit, we shine and we gonna shine either with your support or without your support, we gonna shine muthafuckas and we gonna shine down on you!
More footage from the concert can be found HERE
Interesting…he’s speaking of Atlantic Records as his label not pushing the “Shining Down” record.
Good music will shine through whether or not the labels push it…he may not be getting the milllions Jay-Z is pumping into his shit, or that Interscope will put into Soulja Boy. But understand, WE the people have and are gaining control of the music. The people will hear what they want to hear.
That is why we are seeing the tabels turn, and fully independent labels and artists coming up and being equally successful. Trust in us.
Peace, and independence love.
