JAMIE LIDELL “The Ring” MUSIC VIDEO

The next single from Jamie Lidell’s upcoming album finds him looking up to funk kings Parliament compared to the previously released “Compass.” Spaced out and wacked out, Jamie let’s us know that he hasn’t toned down his soul and explodes in this new video. Definitely displaying a bit of his dual-personality in a fuzzed out split screen, Jamie goes wild on both sides. But according to the information provided:

The video, shot by Lindsey Rome in double vision through the barrel of a dusty camera’s sights finds Jamie returning to the songs birthplace, the beaches of Western Australia, to shout it out from the sands.

Joined by Chilly Gonzales and Dan Rossen (of Grizzly Bear), the track is reminiscent of the mad scientist experiments from Multiply.  Jamie’s new album Compass seems to be following suit.  The album will be released May 18, 2010 via Warp Records.

CULTS "Go Outside" MUSIC VIDEO

Cults in Maui

It’s still a mystery.  But maybe the duo from New York are really from Hawaii?  Either way, Gorilla Vs. Bear posted this video by Helene Park using “Go Outside” by Cults.  Shot on the Canon 7D, the music video and music go along really well.  Maybe the music by the Cults were meant to be surfed to or hula’d to at a luau.

My investigation continues…

NITE CLUB "Genorate" LIVE MUSIC VIDEO

Nite Club is heading over to the east, FAR EAST. Tonight they played their last show for quite some time before heading out to Japan.  Performing at The Deli Magazine’s Bushwick Music Festival they rocked one of their newest songs and possibly one of their soon to be biggest hit. “Genorate” is a new track that melds the loungy electro sounds from their album My Tronic and adds a lot more UMPH to it.  A tune that could easily placed at one of New York’s chic clubs and make the likes of Jay-Z or Kanye West jealous.  This could be the jam to that takes Nite Club to new heights.  Hopefully the elitist ears of this city will keep their eyes closed and open their ears up and just bump & grind along.

PENGUIN PRISON “The Worse It Gets” (R.A.C. Remix) MP3

Penguin Prison

Browsing through the interwebs at abnormal hours may lead discovering some musical gems…sometimes.  But hitting up Big Stereo did just that.  Finding out that New York’s very own Penguin Prison got remixed by R.A.C., I had to download the track.  Long and behold my ears were treated to a simple and as Big Stereo described it, a “pleasant” surprise.  Gifted by a “voice of an angel” (claims The Guardian UK), Chris Glover’s voice sweetly sings over some disco-thumping tracks ala DFA blending itself with the glamorous vibes from Scissor Sisters.

SOLID GOLD Daytrotter Session + Tour

Solid Gold

The Minneapolis indie rock kings recorded a session for Daytrotter back in January.  Recording  new tracks “Elephants” and “One In A Million,” a cover of Chris Isaac’s “Wicked Game” and hit song “Who You Gonna Run To?” the songs are an exact replica of their moody live shows.  Full of groove and warmth my attraction to these songs are still as strong as they are when listening to the excellent recordings in Bodies of Water.  Download the complete session here.

But now having blasted through last week’s SXSW 2010, the band is about to head out on a short tour sporting new songs and maybe even cover.  Check out the tour dates below:

04.02.10 @ Bar & Grill in Morris, Minnesota
04.03.10 @ The Annex in Madison, Wisconsin
04.04.10 @ Subterranean in Chicago, Illinois
04.06.10 @ DC9 in Washington, DC
04.07.10 @ M Room in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
