Oddisee: You Know Who You Are (Acoustic)

by

A friend of mine posted the original version of this track on his Facebook page about a week ago and within the comments, he also posted this acoustic version. I absolutely fell in love with the sound of this particular version, so I thought I would share it with you.

Oddisee is a Sudanese MC, whose music you guys should definitely check out.

Frank Ocean has a voice. A talented voice at that, and he definitely knows how to use it, creating stories through the records he releases.

Check out his new record, “Channel Orange”, where he manages to prove himself once again as a lyricist, vocalist and producer.

What Colour is Your Music?

by

Unless you know me, you’d be surprised by what you may find in my iPod.

An interesting video has come out of the i am OTHER channel (by the one and only Pharrell Williams) which leads to some controversial views. Can we truly label music by color, race, gender or ethnicity anymore? Can you really tell what someone has in their headphones based off race and appearance?

Azealia Banks: Liquorice

by

Last time Azealia Banks released a video, it pretty much went viral in an instant, and that was the video for her song ‘212’ (I suggest you Youtube it if you haven’t seen/heard it yet) so she had a lot to live up to with her visuals for her next single, ‘Liquorice’.

Already a fan of the song itself, I didn’t really care what the accompanying visuals to this track was like but I watched it, and she did a pretty good job, turning everyone’s expectations upside down. So fresh!!

Nardwuar vs. Curren$y

by

If i was a musician, the only person I would want to do an interview with is Nardwuar the Human Serviette. This guy is like the encyclopedia of music.

Check out his latest interview with (but his third time interviewing) Curren$y. Entertaining. Hilarious. And as always, awesome gifts from Nardwuar.

Concert Review: City and Colour at the Enmore Theatre

by

A couple of weeks ago on a Monday night, after 12 hours in the office (so much for the 5 to 9 life) and lots of Red Bull in my system, I headed to the Enmore Theatre to watch one of two sold-out side shows of Dallas Green aka City and Colour.

What was the result? A performance that was amazing, intimate, powerful, open, honest, and one that seriously gave me goosebumps.

MS MR: Hurricane

by

A new song has been stuck in my head for the past few days and the culprit is ‘Hurricane’ by MS MR.

Poppy, powerful, polished and just downright catchy. Take notice and press play!
