Seu Jorge & Almaz – Everybody Loves The Sunshine.

City of God and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, two of my all-time favorite movies, have one man in common: the throaty, gravelly-voiced Brazilian crooner Seu Jorge. For the latter, Jorge recorded an entire album of acoustic David Bowie covers, which I listen to whenever I’ve had my fill..

Paul White – Ancient Treasure (ft. Guilty Simpson).

Guilty Simpson is the underground Busta Rhymes when it comes to collaborations. In this case, Guilty lent some bars to Paul White’s “Ancient Treasure” for a 12″ that will come with the deluxe version of the album Paul White & The Purple Brain, which is some nasty neo-psych rock. Guilty’s..

Fa Fa Fa Funky.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5-G2_1Zj6c[/youtube] Did you know that Dee Dee of the Ramones recorded a rap album as Dee Dee King in 1989? This single is not on the album but still terrible and entertaining in a kind of car-wreck way. Seek out the whole album if you hate your ears. I like..

Phish Lights Up Hampton in Reunion

(img source) So, if you haven’t heard about Phish’s comeback tour after breaking up in 2004, then you must be living under a rock. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get tickets to their three night opening run at Hampton Coliseum in Virginia, but the band was kind enough to release free soundboards..

Don’t you love that feeling when you hear a track so good from an artist that’s new to you that you seek out their whole catalog. That’s the feeling I had when I had this funky electronic track come across the ML e-mail box a few day ago. I went..
