#6-BIG BOI-Sir Luscious Left Foot…The Son Of Chico Dusty (Def Jam)

An iconic example of the malaise the record industry is suffering from, Big Boi’s solo debut has gone through so many tracklist and release date changes waiting for a track that could break as a hit –it finally arrived with ‘Shutterbugg’-, that even songs formerly launched as advance singles didn’t make the final cut. This has become common practice within the R&B market and led many people to doubt about the final product having much to do with the album as it was conceived. However, as it was to expect from a half of Outkast, ‘Sir Luscious’ was such solid and slick piece of work that didn’t suffer in the least from all the obstacles on his way; the best proof of the superb shape the rapper from Atlanta’s is still in.

The Month In Videos: Part I – The Hits


Nearly a month hiatus since we stopped our weekly recap to attend ATP Pavement, we are back with a bumper monthly edition divided in different posts, the first of which is a selection of the best videos released during the last few weeks.

The first part is dedicated to those tracks and artists that have already been huge in our loop but didn’t have audiovisual support yet. Beginning with the exception that is Flying Lotus’ brand new track ‘Heave (N)’, a discard from his superb recent album ‘Cosmogramma’ whose quality lets you know what a beast of a record the experimental beatmaster has produced. ‘Heave (N)’ is followed by a selection of recent promos that should need no further introduction.

The Week That Was (20-03-2010): Videos

Plenty of interesting videos this week, beginning with the smashing 9 minute epic, Tarantino-esque video for Lady Gaga’s ‘Telephone’; a visual extravaganza that recalls the golden days of MTV, when every clip was a world of surprises and Michael Jackson and Madonna reigned supreme. She even managed to convince Beyoncé to appear as her love subject… We haven’t exactly been the biggest fans of the ubiquitous star, but ‘Telephone’ is a new career high that confirms her unrivalled status as the best pop artist in the conservative waters of today’s mainstream music. The video is one of the most clicked ever in the story of youtube. Check the track’s remixes too. The likes of Passion Pit, Crookers and even Alphabeat have worked on it.

Hot Chip – I Feel Better

Hot Chip | MySpace Music Videos

Hot Chip brought a superb new video, ‘I Feel Better’, in which even the supernatural powers have had enough of boy bands and unleash their furious vengeance on one of them in the middle of club perfomance. Good song, too! Other video highlights of the week after the jump.. Read the rest of this entry »

2009 MUSIC A-Z: B for Belle & Sebastian vs. Beirut

BEIRUT-La Llorona

It looks like the B of 2009 is going to be quite disputed, with two of our favourite chamber pop bands returning. The first of them, Beirut, is meant to release a new album in the autumn, but before that there’s a new record compiling two EPs that showcase Zach Condon’s two different musical directions: His usual, gypsy-flavoured, itinerant orchestra has carried on travelling the world, moving from turn of the century Paris to the Latin American latitudes of Oaxaca, Mexico in “March Of The Zapotec”; back to back with a return to the laptop electronica of his origins, under the moniker of Realpeople, in “Holland EP” .

The second, Glasgow Finest, Belle & Sebastian, will be following the steps of many of their heroes from the sixties and fulfilling another of their pop dreams with the release of their first musical movie, for which they have been auditioning in search of two new female vocalists. “God Help The Girl’s” soundtrack, scheduled to see the light by the end of the year, will include brand new versions of popular classics next to a whole lot of new tracks and could become one of the year’s most pleasant highlights.

Other noteworthy contenders for the B: Read the rest of this entry »
