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

Finally, the most anticipated album of the year, is here. Jay Z and Kanye West, arguably the most important people in the rap game in recent years, have joined forces on Watch the Throne, a powerful display of their mutual skills and talent.

Otis samples an old song by soul legend, Otis Redding, and it’s goes a little something like this…

The end of the Kingdom?

This may be a bit premature, but rumours are circulating that Kings of Leon are on the verge of calling it a day. If it’s true, their reign may have been short, but it was fun while it lasted..

Straight from the Jacket

Posted by DJ • August 05, 2011 at 09:32 AM

Holding on to Black Metal is probably the best cut on My Morning Jacket’s latest album, Circuital. Don’t know if this is rock, country, alternative or what-not, we simply call this good music.

The album is available now for download on iMesh

 

Introducing: Cults

Posted by DJ • August 04, 2011 at 09:29 AM

 

Over a year ago, Cults were an anonymous duo, doing the regular rounds on music blogs. “Go Outside” took them slowly but surely from the underground and granted them a deal with a major record company, making them one of the most interesting acts out there to watch.

Here’s the official, yet somehow enigmatic, clip for the song.

 

New! iMesh People Profile

Posted by iMesh • August 03, 2011 at 02:50 PM

iMesh is all about creating a meeting point where music meets social and where you can listen, share and discover new music and make new friends.  We wanted to let you know that we have a great new format called: iMesh People profile.

With iMesh People profile you can tailor iMesh to do some new cool social stuff, such as :

1.  ”Play My Station“– listen to your friends’ “stations” right from their profiles. You can see what music your friends like, what new songs are out there and what music you can share with your friends.

2.  “What’s up” – interact, comment and respond to your friends’ newsfeeds. From now, when you visit someone’s profile, the “What’s Up” tab will give you an update on what that person has been up to

3. New photo gallery – share more with bigger photos, faster load times, and better comment privacy.

4. New profile layouts – edit your profile to express your individuality with new themes. You can even upload your own background entirely.

 

Evolve with us and become a new social iMesh’er, and don’t forget to socialize with us and let us know what you think  :-)

 

 

Happy birthday, MTV

Posted by DJ • August 02, 2011 at 08:36 AM

30 years ago, a new TV channel revolutionized the music industry. MTV, short for Music TV, was simply a TV channel dedicated to music videos. The channel was essential to many flourishing careers in the 90s, and to making the video clip an art form.

Here’s a clip by Dire Straights, one of the signatures of MTV’s golden era, before it became yet another reality TV channel. Because after all, who needs a Music TV channel when we have youtube..?
