And you will go to Mykonos with a vision of a gentle coast and a sun to maybe dissipate shadows of the mess you made.â€
The Harlem Shake is an 80â€™s dance that started in Harlem and was again popularized in 2000 through a P. Diddy production called â€œLetâ€™s Get It.â€ Watch the little kids do it in that video – fly. The extremely stylish dance was all over Manhattan during my senior year of high school, it was overdone but not done enough, it is one of the most entertaining dances youâ€™ll see.
While these Brooklyn rockers may not exactly live up to the name, they do make some pretty good music.Â Strictly Game is one of their better tracks from the upcomingÂ Technicolor Health. I was a big fan of theirÂ Burning Birthdays EP back in â€˜06 but hadnâ€™t heard from them in a while, the new stuff soundsÂ a little more polished for better or worse but definitely a group to look out for.
Make a lot of money, take a lot of shit. Feel real bad then get over it.â€
Iâ€™ll admit, these guys may be a little too experimental for some ears but if you have the imagination and interest your in for an incredibly trippy/amazing musical experience. One of EMPTâ€™s favorite unsigned bands. High quality psychedelic pop.
Iâ€™ve probably heard about 7 or 8 versions of this song by now, doesnâ€™t get old. Quality production and even better feel. Itâ€™s from their 2008 LPÂ The Rhumb Line,Â definitelyÂ their best effort to date. Great song.
Well she called me up, she said I love you in the middle of the night
I said In the middle of the night everybody loves everybody else these days
She said Oh, in the middle of the day I love you very much
I said Everybody loves each other these daysâ€
Been followingÂ BÃ©atrice Martin since she was a member of Bonjour Brumaire, but it was her solo projectÂ Coeur de Pirate that hooked me in. Sheâ€™s been playing the piano since 3 and writing since â€˜07. I canâ€™t get enough of her voice and her songs are just as good. Comme des Enfants is one of the standouts from her debut album,Â Coeur de Pirate.
Kelley Polar is a former classical violinist/composer (astronaut) who found this website and started making Space Age love music. â€œA Dream In Three Partsâ€ is one of the standouts from his album, though the album isnâ€™t short of good tracks. A full exposure of all his influences, it is borderline weird like all his stuff but still very musical and engaging.
Some of the most profound lyrics youâ€™ll ever come across.
Oh iâ€™m not making love to anyoneâ€™s wishes, only for that guide I seeâ€¦â€
Hip-hop producers arenâ€™t the only oneâ€™s who can transform completely off topic samples into something fresh and relevant, Passion Pitâ€™s â€œSleepyheadâ€ is a glimpse of where sampling could go if used creatively, itâ€™s truly endless. I got their Chunk of Change EP when I was in Boston and got reminded of it yesterday by the always on point Steph Lund. I have to admit though, there is a big difference between â€œSleepyheadâ€ and the rest of the EP. This is a great song though, very fresh.
â€œPassion Pit is an instantly likeable (bordering on joyful) new band out of Boston thatâ€™s the product of Michael Angelakosâ€™ inventive imagination. This guy must dance when he dreams.â€ – www.ohmyrockness.com
I posted the White Stripes version of this song a few days ago but had no idea it was a cover. The song was written by Corky Robbins and performed by Patti Page way back in the 50s.
Hereâ€™s a version of the White Stripes cover not too many are familiar with, the acoustic mariachi version, fresh.
