There are some artists for whom imposing restraints and limitations upon their art would have a negative effect, making them unable to fully express themselves. Zeppelin wouldn’t have been the band they were had someone told them ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’ should be 3 minutes long. Yet there are those who actively need restraints […]
It is a common occurrence for artists with long careers to try and change their surroundings in order to give themselves new stimuli, and therefore reignite the muse. Paul Simon did it with his trip to Graceland, as did Justin Vernon with his well-documented cabin in the woods episode that resulted in Bon Iver and […]
Fresh from releasing his acclaimed and rather brilliant album Until The Quiet Comes, FlyLo popped up on Diplo’s BBC1 show for a cheeky guest slot, playing tunes from his new album plus a few unreleased tracks. The first of these tracks that he recently said were knocking about on his harddrive, ‘Flotus’ is a beauty. […]
The sad look of a man who thought fishing in his own jacuzzi would be a lot more fun than it was.
Well the film was great. It exceeded our expectations and made us all the sadder that the band has come to its end. However, we can relive the show and the film, and we plan to do exactly that (likely on Blu-Ray with surround-sound). All we can say is if you missed it, get it. If […]
Coming from Flatbush, the same area as Joey Bada$$’s Pro Era crew, The Underachievers are another hugely promising East Coast rap group. Although they hail from the same area, The Underachievers’ sound comes from a completely different planet to the classic New York – Nas and Wu-Tang- inspired sound of Pro Era. Gold Soul Theory […]
So this isn’t a massively up to date track, nor some retro gem that has been rediscovered. It’s simply something we cannot stop listening to, and as part of the on-again-off-again “summer” we’ve been having, the sun has been beautifully complemented by this. Initially caught from the Tensnake Fact Mag mix (check it here) it’s been some […]
Not a lot needs to be said really, we’re loving TNGHT and what they’ve been doing. This is a mix that shows what they’ve done and things to come (via Rolling Stone), download it here. 1. John Carpenter – “Back to the Pod (Version 2)” 2. SpaceGhostPurrp – “Get Yah Head Bust” 3. Dj Zirk […]
Bat for Lashes has released the cover, release date, and first single and video from her new album, The Haunted Man. It will be released on the 15th October in the UK, and below is the about-as-naked-as-you-can-get album cover. It’s been three years since we’ve heard from Natasha Khan – even though it seems much […]
Last week Frank Ocean posted this statement/prose piece that was intended for the liner notes of his forthcoming album, ‘Channel Orange’, in which he outs himself as bisexual. It is not only a very beautifully written piece but also a very brave move, for although in 2012 this shouldn’t be ‘something that matters’, the fact that a […]
