Star Slinger – Free

2013-10-09-starslinger_jpg_630x640_q85

This is arguably one of my favorite weekend’s of the year. It being the weekend we celebrate Halloween in the States. When you get to see a slutty bumble bee make out with a Blue’s Brother or find yourself dancing with a strapping gentleman who is dressed as a half Batman / half regular guy sort of costume (Yeah, we get it. You don’t care but had to do something). It is a magical time where you get to pick some random thing to be for a day. I love it. This year, I have collected the essentials to pull off being Margot Tenenbaum. Mainly, so I can wear a blond wig and chain smoke without questions. Isn’t that the point of a good costume though? A free pass to be what you want for a night? This is excluding the sexy bumble bee or cat people. Unless you are in to that and also cat’s are sort of slutty in real life so not too far fetched I suppose. I digress.

Being able to do something different and be something else is just a treat though. A night off of you.

On that note, this new track from Star Slinger definitely embodies a different style and sound from his previous releases. Free, which will appear on his debut LP with a tentative release of early 2014, is a track which transcends his previous work. Star Slinger, or Darren Williams, brings us this track which highlights his ability to mix genre’s of music and creating catchy dance hall numbers with a heavy bass, playful sax riffs, and pitched vocals to make you move.

Be sure to add this one to the list for the weekend as it is sure to knock the hot pants off your date in no time.

Osborne – All Night (Tuff City Kids Remix)

October is a month of late nights. The summer mindset is still wearing off, and in some places the Santa Ana winds are blowing and it’s in the high 70s late into the evening. Holiday vacations are close. You can catch up on sleep then.

Of course, there’s Halloween. If you don’t watch the sunrise on Halloween, I’m sorry. Cackling like a witch or howling like a feral werewolf as the giant pumpkin rises from the east is a worthy annual tradition.

Or you can not dress up and be a crank and go to sleep early because you’re too cool for school. “I have to be up early for work tomorrow, I have responsibilities” and all that. Let that feeling slip aside for one night, and embrace All Hallows Eve with medieval spirit and hysteria.

Oh, you’re down? To clown? Frankly I’m not a clown guy myself, and have always found those “scary clown” masks distasteful. But I get you’re meaning. You want to go out and ride that candy corn high to the early light.

Osborne, via Tuff City Kids, has the prescription. From club to car to subway to dewy lawn, stretched out at dawn, heed the thump n’ bump call: “A-a-a-a-all night.”
