Last week, we interviewed Girl Talk and talked about touring, layering samples, and the infamous live shows…
Limerick, Ireland’s comedy hip-hop duo, The Rubberbandits, have exploded into fame with the release of their hit single “Horse Outside”. The single stands out from their other works with a much more electro-influenced sound I would love to hear more of. The music video is filled with hilarious Michael Jackson-esque dance moves, and makes a pretty strong argument for using a horse as your main source of transportation, instead of a car.
If you want to hear more from the Rubberbandits, you can check out a series of very funny prank phone calls, as well as their other music videos on youtube.
A friend and I were talking the other day about Luther Vandross and how many children, including our generation, were conceived off of music like his back when our parents were younger. My friend went on to say how she disliked Luther Vandross because every time one of his songs played she thought of her conception. Her comment got me to thinking about something. Who is the Luther Vandross of today, or is there? R&B has taken a drastic turn from what it used to sound like back when The Temptations and Jackie Wilson took the stage. So what I guess my question is, what type of music will our generation use to conceive children? Is hip hop the new “it” genre for baby making? Take the song “You See Right Through Me” by Nicki Minaj for example:
After my celestial experience with 2008’s charmingly haunted In Ghost Colours, I couldn’t imagine the terms in which I’d be similarly effected by a Cut Copy album clearly preoccupied with an impending doom (see album cover). However, when a close friend sent me an email saying, “Cut Copy – Zonoscope / For the love of God,
download buy this RIGHT NOW”, I couldn’t resist.
