Buried Treasures

St. Vincent is Annie Erin Clark, a musician as talented as it gets. Gearing up to release her third album, Strange Mercy, on September 12th. In this video, she subjects herself to some quite nasty procedure. Take a look, and then check out the rest of her superb discography

 

 

Wayne’s World

Posted by DJ • September 03, 2011 at 08:09 AM

After a short spell in prison, Lil’ Wayne returns with his much anticipated album, Tha Carter IV (avaliable for download on iMesh). As the Genre continues to get more and more commercial and unchallenging, there’s a lot of weight on weezy’s shoulders to prove that he can still be the Saviour of Rap.

Has he delivered the goods? The jury is still out on that. In the meantime, here’s the video for John, featuring Rick Ross.

 

Hot Truckers

OK, so this is not a proper new video from the Foo Fighters, but when Dave Grohl & Co. pose naked in front of a camera, as a bunch of porn loving, gay truck drivers, who are very comfortable with their sexuality, we simply have to present you with the evidence…

Set against Queen’s Body Language, this short clip was shot to promote the Foo Fighters’ upcoming US tour. Obviously, this is going to be hot!

 

 

It’s the Muppets show!!

Posted by DJ • August 30, 2011 at 07:47 AM

One of TV’s all time greatest creations, The Muppet Show is back for another round on the big screen, and to get our appetite going, we are blessed with a special album, The Green Album (available now on iMesh), in which some of the greatest rock acts of the moment pay tribute to these little furry dolls.

In this video, the kings of Youtube, cover the Muppets theme song, while giving a small nod to themselves.

 

 

Radio Gaga

1o million views in a week are probably evidence of Lady Gaga’s fame and omnipresent persona rather than proof of the new song’s quality, especially as the shock value wears off.

Anyway, You & I is another post modern mix of pop culture quotes and no original narrative, but who cares? By the time you finish reading this, there are most certainly another million views accumulating on the youtube meter…

 

 

 

Ghetto Dreams are made of this

Posted by DJ • August 25, 2011 at 07:46 AM

When Kanye and Jay-Z are making all the headlines, it’s easy to let this one go under the radar, but on any other day, a collaboration between Common and Nas is big hip hop news.

The two conscience rappers deliver here another grim tail of ghetto life disillusionment, with hard beats and sharp lyrics.

Get the track on iMesh

 

The return of the ginger headed star

Posted by DJ • August 24, 2011 at 11:31 AM

Florence’s first album, from two years ago, was not an instant success, but gradually  it became a worldwide hit, positioning Florence & her Machine on the brink of mega-stardom. And if you think that a quirky English girl is not made from the right stuff, think again. Think Adele..

Anyway, Florence’s new song is everything we hoped for: upgraded production, soaring melody and irresistible delivery.

 

It’s raining Chili Peppers

Posted by DJ • August 23, 2011 at 07:41 AM

 

A new album by the Red Hot Chili Peppers is always a cause for celebration, especially when it’s been 5 years since the last one, and guitar maverick John Frusciante is no longer with the band.

Having said that, the band are back in their home base, California, and doing the obligatory “we are playing live on a roof” bit, which became a staple after the famous roof gig. The song, The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie, finds the Chili Peppers in typical poppy mode, with a healthy dose of cowbells, which can always be a good thing…

 

Thank him now

Drizzy is back, with his much anticipated follow up to last year’s Thank Me Later LP.  The new album will only be out in a couple of months, but thankfully, there are a few tunes to whet our appetite.  Marvins Room, featured here, is a surprisingly downtempo, introspective affair.  By the way,we’re still trying to figure out if Marvin in the song title is a reference to soul’s legend, Marvin Gaye.  What do you think?

 

 

 

He’s got soul

Posted by DJ • August 18, 2011 at 08:30 AM

Two years ago, Mayer Hawthorne popped out of nowhere with a couple of beautifully crafted retro soul gems on the fantastic Stones Throw label.  It seems that he is now about to cross over to much larger crowds, which he totally deserves, so we think the timing is perfect for a short introduction to his classic single from a couple of years ago
