Put Some Moves To That Beat

April 8, 2011

It is so wonderful to see Daft Punk still making fantastic music.

Music Video Eye Candy

August 4, 2010

he new Jo*nsi video just released, “Animal Arithmetic”. It’s about to hit the fan because everyone loves the Jo*nsi. I sure can’t resist him, trust me when I say I’ve tried… At least this time we can all understand what he is saying (for the most part).

*I tried making accent mark over the ‘o’ but WordPress wanted nothing to do with it.

I Heart New York City

August 3, 2010

am about to polish off my last four days in New York City. When I go back to Columbia there will be no recording artists and managers, no explorations of fabulous food, no club openings and definitely no VIP. I will survive without these things, but they will be missed greatly.

I thought I would post the articles that I wrote for BlackBook Magazine since most of the content is music.

Suggestive Guidance

July 14, 2010

ree Downloads:

Owen Pallett EP, Lewis Takes Off His Shirt.

Another Free Music Monday.

I am obviously in the sharing mood, so here are some bands that I have been listening to lately (I left the well-known bands out of this list):

Soft Cat

Maximum Balloon

Kelis My brother showed me this rad video, her whole album is inspired by her new baby boy and I totally dig the huskies (dream dog).

Goldfrapp Loved her forever and it seems from her new album that I always will.

The Glitch Mob

White Belt Yellow Tag They need to smooth out their sound but they are decent. 

Magic Bullets Don’t worry, they don’t sing about the Magic Bullet 

Turin Brakes

Ghostface Killah

Sparrow & The Workshop Present day Peter, Paul and Mary? I think so.

What Laura Says


Timber Timbre Pretty mainstream now, so beautiful.

Lissie She cover Kid Cudi, she has to be cool.

!!! Free mp3 download.

Die Antwoord Transcribed an interview with them, fascinating (but dirty) band from South Africa.

Freelance Whales

The Do

t work I get “paid” in free promo music, these are the bands that aren’t worth checking out (don’t deserve a link):

Black Francis

MC Frontalot

Job Garcia- cool cover art, crappy music.

Alrighty then, sorry if that was overwhelming. That is just a fraction of how I feel every day. So many wonderful musicians, and that doesn’t even include beneficial podcasts! Let me know of some of your new favorites.

Another Free Concert Weekend in NYC

July 14, 2010

very Saturday from July 17th through September 11th there will be free music, beer and a slip-N-slide. Could you ask for anything else? Maybe if you lived in the Upper East Side, but luckily the Jelly concerts are in Brooklyn.

The 10th Annual Siren Music Festival is happening from noon to 9 p.m. this Saturday at Coney Island. My plan is to post-up at the beach and the stages whenever I feel inclined. Anyone want to join?

Here is the fantastic line up:
