Cute Look.

Made up of the awesomeness that is The Park Jazz Band and the talent of Ms Novena “BabyStone” Carmel…. Zoowax releases their first video for their first single, “Nine to Five.” All about leaving the everyday life for your extraordinary dreams, this video is filmed partially at my favorite Jazz/Kickin It spot, Angel’s out on Wilshire and 26th. Loving it muchly. Zooming right past Retro and headed straight for 20s flapper girl, you know I’m going to love the old school theme behind this cute lil video. Play it for me and let me know what you think.

Asked by a friend to identify this song, I was surprised (and somewhat impressed) I was actually able to. Read the rest of this entry »

Mayer Hawthorne – Impressions: The Cover EP. Links:

leave a comment »

Unexpected Win.

 

Always finding new and impressive ways to up and surprise me, Mayer Hawthorne comes through with his latest project, “Impressions: The Covers” EP. Filled with with wonderful covers of everyones old school favorites, like ‘(I got) Work To Do, ‘Fantasy Girl,’ and ‘You’ve got the Makings of a Lover,’ Mayer is basically establishing his talents and dominance in the awesome niche of Retro Soul, and music overall. And its free. So there’s really no losing involved in any of this right now. Unless you dont download it.

This boy is good, I’m a believer after this little joint. As If I wasnt before.

Anyways, you can download the EP in full by heading here. Break it open on Sunday morning, get your breakfast game on, sit down and listen to this, and enjoy.

Amy Winehouse's new album is looking official. Like, "Completed" Official. Links

with 9 comments

Early January 2011. Looking good.

Now after anyone has a run like Amy has the last few years, naturally you’re going to be a bit wary and cautious when news pops up regarding new music, new tours… anything. Getting caught up in boyfriends, drugs and family drama will hold anyone up/make anyone flakey for a while. And after seeing Amy probably hit bottom and blatantly not giving a fu*k for a while… it’s a wonderful thing when things really seem like they are starting to turn for the better. And it honestly looks like they are.

In the last year, after looking like she had re-engaged herself to the asshole, she’s finally ditched the douchebag boyfriend Blake and moved on to someone new… and it looks like he’s doing her right. Don’t know if that’s long-term, but who cares. As long as she’s moving on with her life. In the meantime, it looks like she’s been taking care of the little things, as well as the important shit. On top of starting the effort of making sure her Visa and Passport are clear for travel in 2011 and starting a small tour in brazil, She’s supposedly rallied some of the best talent around her on the low to start building her new band and sound. Along with teaming up with Questlove and Raphael Saddiq for new music and to start some kind of super bands…. It also looks like she’s secured Cee-Lo Green in support of her new album as well. And even though she keeps claiming January as the target for her new album release… knowing how the industry is, we wont get it until fall at least. But at least it looks real. It looks very, VERY real. Click the links. I researched this.

Please Musical Jebus. Let this be real. Amen.

Come listen to what Mark Ronson and D'Angelo are sounding like together. Link

It's just nice to hear his voice.

As one of those foolish people who consistently held out hope of hearing D’Angelo on a track again, you get geeked when you run across links like the new Mark Ronson/D’Angelo collaboration, titled “Glass Mountain Trust.” ThisĀ  D’Angelo’s first real appearance on a record since showing up randomly and suddenly on Snoop Dogg’s “Imagine,” on his “Blue Carpet Treatment” release.

Now while I’ve listened to it several times at this point, I’m not too sure on how to feel about it just yet. I don’t adore it the way I want and I don’t hate it in the least… but I think the updated sound along with the obvious changes in D’Angelo vocal stylings has me a bit thrown right now. At the end of the day, I’m really just happy to hear the dude singing and actually see him actively recording with talented people. Just… keep that up for now, while I let this song grow on me.

You can listen and download Mark Ronson and The Business Intl – Glass Mountain Trust Featuring D’Angelo HERE.
Tell me what you think, and enjoy.
