Fans had to wait a pretty long time to listen to N.E.R.D's new record. This album was firs supposed to be released this summer. You problably remember that the single Hot'n Fun is already available for a long time. Some even had the time to say that two female singers were going to join the band which wasn't true.
Things have been a little arduous this time. The band threw many songs away before having this nice feeling of satisfaction. Anyway here they are with a great single. Pharrel Williams said some times ago : “It’s almost like we did this whole entire album with our eyes closed, not because it was that easy but because it was that important to reconnect with what we feel and I would say this album is like scrapping everything and starting with nothing.”
Alberta Cross, whose British take on American southern-blues-rock has attracted the attention of Rolling Stone and the New York Times, is giving two very lucky fans the chance to attend their show aboard the Temptress, a 50's-era former Navy vessel that floats on the Hudson River, that is sure to pack nearly 500 die-hards for their show on November 9.
Coming off a massively successful tour after the release of their 2009 album Broken Side of Time, where they opened for Them Crooked Vultures, the New York based band is now simultaneously headlining their own tour and recording their next studio album. Gaining global recognition with their rock-driven, soulful undertones, Alberta Cross is not only a band to keep an eye out for in the coming months, but also one that you have a chance to see for free.
Zach Deputy is by definition a one-man band. No, not the perfunctory phrase used too often to describe a talented musician, but really - a one-man band. Deputy plays more than 250 shows a year with his island-infused music that comes naturally with his roots steeped in the Caribbean. With his funky melodies, no one is left standing at a Zach Deputy show, where he uses live loops that layer sounds to create a full band effect.
With Deputy taking the Bamboo Stage Nov. 9 at the Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery, 2621 N Federal Highway in Boca Raton, Mike Rothman grabbed a few spare minutes of this touring machine’s time to talk about his influences, upcoming music and why fans need to check him out when he takes over Boca like the Pied Piper.
Unless you have completely isolated yourself in your room creating your one-of-the-kind Halloween costume for the last 2 months, you have surely heard that Daft Punk is doing the soundtrack for the new Tron: Legacy movie. Watch the music video for the first released track, "Derezzed below.
Spunky dance-rock duo Matt & Kim got a little rambunctious during their sold-out show at Webster Hall on Tuesday. Talking nonstop to the audience and to each other, furiously pounding their instruments, and even jumping into the crowd, Matt & Kim's enthusiasm for their music and live performance was downright infectious.
Before Matt & Kim made their highly anticipated appearance, Brooklyn indie rockers the So So Glos kicked things off with their Clash-like punk anthems. Atlanta rapper and self-proclaimed “best friend” of Matt & Kim, Donnis, followed up with his own southern brand of club-ready rap.
Ghostface Killah is a man that needs no introduction, so I will be a man off few words.
He is one of the best Mcs of what some would call "real hip hop". He is terrific with the Wu Tang, and pretty great on his own.
So what are you waiting for guys ? A surprise guest ?
Well they might be a surprise guest, rappers love that. But I just don't know, and it would'nt be a surprise after all.
Run baby run to the ticket store.
Ghostface Killah at he Roxy Theatre on November 12 (9.00 PM)
The little electro-pop princess is back with a new record and a usual promotion tour. Your probably have heard of Robyn in the previous singles such as "konichiwa bitches" (great name), and "With Every Heartbeat" (great song). Robyn has a great artistic sense that can been noticed in her music and her videos.
Get your tickets, a blonde wig, and get ready for a great show.
Robyn will perform at The Warfield on November 23 at 7.00 PM
I am a nice guy so here is the brand new video.
Check out those Venoms mixing a heavyweight electro stuff. Those two guys come from Italy, or Hell I don't know. One thing is sure : they know how to party. This a kind of universal great electro, every one should like.
Their music is not basicaly very sophisticated, but who cares ? It's loud and heavy. It's made for vibrating your guts. I think the video speaks for itself.
Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77 at the Mezzanine on November 2. 8.00 PM
