This week’s giveaway is courtesy of Sony! They sent me out a pair of their latest Bluetooth headphones and there’s nothing basic about these. The headphones are high-resolution compatible meaning they can handle audio files higher quality than mp3 (FLAAC etc), and are wireless (Bluetooth and NFC syncing).
I have two pairs to give away (one for Canada, one for outside of Canada). So if you’d like to snag a pair of these leave a comment below and tell me: What’s the first song/album you’re going to listen to with these headphones? Also, make sure you tell me what city you live in! We’ll pick two winners in two weeks.
I saw Vikesh Kapoor perform the other night, armed with a guitar and a harmonica (there were some Bob Dylan vibes for sure). I wanted to share one of his songs with you called “Bottom of the Ladder”.
The video below was made by Randy Sterling Hunter and Zia Anger, the same ones who did that video for Angel Olsen. Once again they’ve exposed and re-wound a single roll of 16mm film to create the visuals.
Producer Amerigo Gazaway has created a masterpiece here, turning the dream of a collab between Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and Marvin Gaye into reality. To call this is a mash-up album simply does not do it any justice, this is a thing of beauty.
*Amerigo Gazaway has been served with a takedown notice from RIAA, the link I posted still works for now but probably won’t for much longer – better hurry!
