miami’s snakehole have carefully assembled images from someones tumblr utilizing their imovie pro and outputted it into “music video” form for their song “reincarnate”. images of satan, witchcraft, thoroughbreds, and burzum flash in a sequence-less pattern atop their unpolished lofi garage punk noise.
remember eddie vedder? our grunge-era thom yorke? well… im sorry to say hes rearing his grungy head by way of a new solo album “ukulele songs”. consisting of original tunes and covers all performed on a… ukulele, this album is sure to be a winner.
vedder has invited some friends to collaborate, like cat power and glen hansard of the frames/the swell season. perhaps im being a bit brutal. an all ukulele album with fun collab guests might actually be more interesting than yet another pearl jam snoozer or solo album consisting of pearl jam outtakes.
“ukulele songs” hits your digital music stores may 31, ok?
toronto alt r&b project the weeknd have dropped a free mixtape called “house of balloons”. i didnt think r&b could be tolerable considering the abundance of popular auto-tuned r&b pop crap. a couple tracks on “house of baloons” feature samples of brutal faves beach house. theres probably some other hip samples buried in there.
busy p (the p diddy of electro) has slammed disney for cashing in on the tron and daft punk brands by pulling a common record industry practice of releasing a remix album of starbucks counter caliber quality.
the former manager of daft punk calls out disney a&r for being a shopper of electronic music at airport kiosks. ouch.
we owe it to bros with clout like busy p to call out brutal moves by the powers that be that hurt the quality of the music we know and love. he took it upon himself to soften the blow by digging out a rejected re-interpretation by belgium’s goose.
i thought mtv unplugged was dead but i guess everything old is new again. guards played a sweet lil acoustic set for mtv (who i thought had nothing to do with music anymore). watch them jam on “dont wake the dead” below or catch their full set over at mtv hive.
a prolific vimeoer by the name of stephanie cafarella has “produced” a music video for tamaryn‘s dreamy “choir of winter” shoegaze banger which turns out to be nothing more than a computer screen saver. maybe this is an unreleased screen saver from the forthcoming mac os x lion?
charlie sheen has showed his love for drugs ‘n partying ‘n dubstep but has spurned an offer to grace the cover of new ep by grave wave witch housers †‡† (ritualz). too bad cuz a young ‘n seXxXee ‘n whorey lindsay lohan has been smacked on the album art instead.
“ghetto ass witch” is †‡†’s new ep and it vibrates of beats ‘n claps ‘n witchy vibez. stream and d/l it below. but dont rapidly share it cuz †‡† will get m▲d.
