Madlib & Georgia Anne Muldrow

February 16, 2012

Now you know these two names together have got to equal one mind-blowing combination. If this single is any indication, the full length out at the end of March is going to be crazy soul power.
Somethin’ soulful and funky is around the corner!

Feb 14th … Part II

February 14, 2012

Ok, so maybe my previous Valentine’s post was laced with a bit of  cynicism. I apologize. To rectify … one of the greatest love songs of all times.Otis Redding, I could listen to you sing this, a million times over.

Feb. 14th …

February 14, 2012


(i know the video won’t play –annoying– worth the click to youtube though. b/c the song is great)

**although, really, really, what I want to post is 20 Van Halen videos circa the 80’s. Because that is what I think about on Valentine’s Day.

Diver Down and such.

M.I.A.

February 3, 2012

It’s been a good week for me! All kinds of releases. M.I.A. just released the “Bad Girls” single from some album that will come out someday … supposedly this year. Highly produced video, I’ll leave it at that. Tribal beats … Now bring on the rest.

Charles Bradley

February 3, 2012

The documentary about Charles Bradley – Soul of America – debuts at the SXSW Film Festival next month. The trailer looks loaded with live performance and life drama, the man has had many a turn in his life.  His album No Time for Dreaming is all kinds of soul and funk … a first album at the age of 62, is in every way a life’s work. Raw and real.  

Santigold

February 1, 2012

How I love thee Santigold and how I’ve been waiting FOREVER for new music. Bam. First listen off the new album Master Of My Make-Believe – “Big Mouth” – freaking love it tons! And the video is just as rad. It’s got a great afro-beat vibe going. Exciting and can’t wait for more. Irritates me that it’s such a great song and all people seem to be writing about is the posibility of a Gaga diss in the song. Who cares!
