Boardwalk Vampire

Posted by DJ • April 30, 2013 at 08:36 AM

Actor and director genius, and star of the HBO series  Steve Buscemi, is in cahoots with New York’s indie poppers, Vampire Weekend. The collaboration produces a series hilarious promotional videos for the band, produced by Buscemi, and targeting mainly him as an out of touch character.

The second video in the series places the band in the subway, and later, playing bowling together. Take a look.. and if you’re here only for the music, here’s Dinae Younge, a teaser from Vampire Weekend’s forthcoming album.

Back to the Basement

Posted by DJ • April 20, 2013 at 01:52 PM

Basement Jaxx are a UK duo, responsible for ground breaking dance music in the 90’s & 00’s and some of the greatest pop moments of the previous decade. They are now back with an infectious new song, Back 2 the Wild, which is a great piece of psychedelic, tropic pop, with an extraordinary video.

Give this a spin, and see how you are drawn back to the wild, listening to the cries of mother nature!

 

Lana at the reception

It requires a big set of kahunas to boldly cover a famous Leonard Cohen song, and Lana Del Rey, surviving an internet-wide back lash against her, is standing up on her two feet, and shakes off the criticism by approaching this song with an untypical minimalistic approach, and with a lot of respect for the original.

Chelsea Hotel No. 2 by Lana Del Rey. She’s still here, folks, and it looks like she’s gonna stay a bit longer.

Jack White, formerly one- half of Rock n’Roll revival duo White Stripes, is launching his new project and his first proper solo album, which is scheduled for April 2012.

Judging by the sound of the first two songs to be leaked from the album, White’s sound is stripped from electricity and noise. It looks like he approached his songwriting from a more traditional point of view of: country, blue-grass and blues.

Here’s the first track, Love Interruption.

Inside the forest

Bon Iver, former Kanye West collaborator, has just released this new video clip for his most controversial track yet, Beth/Rest.  The track is lifted from his latest album, one of 2011 highlights without a doubt. On this track he sounds mostly like a forgotten Peter Gabriel track from his mid 80’s phase. What’s your opinion, do you like this minimalistic 80’s throwback?
