Thanks Lifetime!

My friends at Lifetime Collective invited me out for a BBQ on their patio and then a few (million) other people showed up to hear Lightning Dust, Ladyhawk, and Constantines make some noise. It was a great party! Lifetime is a brand that fully supports the scene, and they’re also the ones behind the magazine I mentioned before, Selector. Cheers fellas!

Theresa Andersson / Birds Fly Away

Oh. My. GOODNESS! Theresa Andersson. You had me at hello, and at the 3:34 mark I decided I would marry you (I’m sorry you have no say in this matter). Look at those little feet go.

Zelda hip hop remixes!

This is ridiculous. Team Teamwork just dropped 10 remixes using music from Zelda! The image below has nothing to do with the project but the album artwork was so wack I decided to post this instead. The remix of Aesop Rock’s No Jumper Cables using the music from Goron Village is perfect.

Kutiman remixes Youtube!

This is where you scream ‘why didn’t I think of this???’ and jump off a bridge! Israeli musician Kutiman has crafted an album entirely from Youtube clips, and it is nothing short of brilliant. Dj Shadow, Mike Realm and Pb Wolf look out. Thanks to Dutch for the heads up!

Jay Dee / 40-Piece Orchestra

AWESOME. A 40-piece orchestra interpreting the music of the late great Jay-Dee. Arrangements by Miguel Atwood Ferguson. Lots of cameos throughout – here’s Pos and Talib doin Stakes is High and then the show closing with Illa J (Dilla’s little brother) singing over Fall in Love (footage courtesy of DERT).

There was a film crew there and it looks like it will be released as a DVD! It will be a must-have (at least for me). Thanks to YesYesYall for the heads up!

Radiohead with marching band!

Apparently I missed the Grammys the other night, I never seem to know when these big award shows are on. My only regret is missing this performance by Radiohead (just Thom Yorke and Johnny Greenwood) with the USC Trojan marching band.

I would love to hear the whole album performed like this. Amazing.
