That Nas leak from the new "Life Is Good" Album… it definitely does NOT suck.

leave a comment »

Again… short sweet and to the point. When I got done running errands, doing some work on the internets and cooking dinner, It looks like Nas (or someone) leaked a brand new track (possibly the lead single, wouldn’t be mad) to the internets for us to review. And I have to tell you… this does NOT suck in the least. Not at all. As in, I’m geeked to see what else this dude comes out with. Nas is back to “Nasty.”

With a HEAVY 80s influence, dope break beats, and everything that ever made me happy as a kid growing up in hip hop, Nasty Nas is basically letting you know hes back. And its GREAT times.

Since Haiku player is acting a bit funny right now… just go ahead and listen/download the link by clicking here. And spread the word. This is nice.
*Update: Or just use the player I got going for you right here.

Ummm, That new Sade is pretty Awesome. Listen. "Love Is Found." Link:

Waow.

I can work through computer armageddon when its Sade.
Sade is one of the greatest bands of all time.
Note that I said BANDS. Of ALL TIME. Google It.

Continuing her recent streak of win, Sade release a new single (for what, I dont know. Who cares. Its New Sade) for what I’m hoping will be a new album. If it is, I’ll be shocked, as Sade is known for taking 5 year breaks in between her recording awesomes.

With a wonderful jazzified symphonic introduction that leads into a pulsating beat and deep driving bass line that pretty much catches your attention instantly, it becomes very hard for me to hide my total fanboy appreciation for this woman and her musical career.

Guitars and Concerts. Blessings and Breaks. More on what that means when you Click Here:

The first 3....

So what are these Blessings, you ask? I was just offered a wonderful writing position with the KICKASS site, Autostraddle. Wow. Wowwee wowwow. Now, if you’re from the old school, you remember that Autostraddle was one of the first sites to show love and appreciation to me… just at a time where I really needed it. Well ever since then, we’ve been following each others awesomes and plotting out the right time to form like Voltron to give you some of the best fucking music you’ll ever be exposed to. Crystal and the amazing editors at AS have decided that now is that time. *humbled.*

Guitars and Concerts? Well tonight was an amazing night. A fairly normal night for what I do, but still amazing nonetheless. You can’t complain after an evening of wonderful music provided by Zoe Keating and her SuperCello, Kaki King and her 9011 guitars… sitting backstage in the house Jon Brion built. Real Instrument Playing Appreciation Night. Its going down. Not to mention my bestie Matt Melvin making the drive from San Diego to hang out for a while. I was surrounded by win this evening. It was a great feeling. Windy is all over the video, as usual.

Anyways, with that being said… here’s where the Breaks part comes in. When the boss is in town, its time to get to work. There will be traveling involved, so I won’t be on my computer (like THAT) for a minute.  Also; with the new writing gig

...and the other 4. 7 is the magic number.

at Autostraddle… along with kickin it over at the World Famous Potholes… I’m going to have some writing pieces Ima need to focus on. I have to sound like I’m creditable and like I know wtf I’m talking about… so we’ll have to gear all my good vocabulary and vernacular that way for a minute. But I’ll still be here, randomly writing my ass off about whatever, and then not editing the shit, making me look like a total dork.

On top of all that… Its time to start getting serious about finishing the archival for the site and new layout. You guys know ive been wanting to update my baby for a while, but the health of my friend who is doing this site take priority (hey Chris… I love you. Get Better). The less I post, the faster it can get done… so we’ll see how that goes.

I wont be going anywhere. I’ll be around to update you and hopefully post up the new Dee-1 Interview I just finished.  Until then, just go through the archives, because im sure you havent read everything I’ve posted. You do that, and I’ll see you guys in a few days.

Love,
Me.

p.s.
I LOVE ANITA BAKER OH MY GOD.
That is all.

Sleigh Bells. If you don’t know by now, Just listen to the glory.

I'll be wearing out their album for a while.

Sound: Thrashing Guitars over Hard 808 Drums and Hip Hop Beats, Melodic Electronica and Synths with airy Vocals. Basically Everything I ever loved.
Album: Treats (2010)

Why?
Dude, if you haven’t heard the hype behind these kids, you’ve been MIA for a while. Speaking of MIA, she’s the one who signed these two crazy kids, who were musicians for long periods of times before randomly meeting through one of their moms who happened to know the other one via her favorite Brazilian restaurant. Fate and Destiny are a powerful thing… because it sounds like these kids were meant to be.  In a serious way. With songs that range from Dance Pop you could put on in a club, Hip Hop Influenced beats that sound like they could come off your favorite rap album, an synth-out edge they add to her voice… It’s just win. An awesome mix of The Ting Tings and Blood Red Shoes.

Seriously. Listen to ONE of these songs and tell me it’s not winning.

Rocked out Song You listen to it below, or watch the rather awesome Official Music Video by clicking Here, since the YouTube Nazism Continues.

Hip Hop + Electronica and Synths =

The Theme Song for MTV’s new Teenage Sexfest, “Skins”

Other Random awesome that confirms how I’m feeling right now. Also, possibly the creation of a whole new Genre.

Yeah. They go motherfucking hard. Dig through their YouTube. Heard about these kids a few months back, when my friend did an awesome interview with The New York Times. But it wasnt until recently when I accidentally ran across a link to them did I realize the glory. And I’m glad I got on it. You need to get on it too.

Enjoy. I did.

Cee-Lo just changed my entire life with his new single, “Fuck You.”

with 92 comments

Greatness.

This will be a short blog, but it must be posted; simply based on the strength of its awesome.

After taking a brief break following his last supercreation with DJ/Producer Danger Mouse, Cee-Lo has completed his new album, titled “Lady Killer….” and he’s back to being fucking amazing; not only pushing the boundaries of  Hip Hop music (Goodie Mob; Outkast)… but he pushes the boundaries and your ideals of what Soul, Retro and Pop-Rock are too.

Currently the greatest song in the history of the world, “Fuck You” is a wonderful combination of the classic Pop-Infused, Retro Soul formula and updated, upfront, fairly harsh, keepin it 100% real witdatass lyrics dedicated to that gold digging bitch you shouldn’t have fallen in love with, and her basic, trickin’ ways. There is basically nothing I can say to describe the greatness that is this song. You just need to listen to it.

Since he’s currently at work at social networking and a Full Video, Cee-Lo has hit us with the temporary Lyric (teaser) Video, breaking down every “Fuck You” for you to see.

Enjoy this, and spread the word of this Wondrous Victory.

*Update (9.29.10)
If you loved this song, and you’re a total geek… Youre going to have to check out the Cee-Lo “Fuck You” 8-Bit Nintendo Remix. Seriously. Click this, and watch it NAO.

Thanks for stopping by.
