23. Feb. 2010, 18:58 von wajzgajHere's some new stuff I've been listening in 2009. As far as hip hop goes there weren't many interesting records. There weren't any great records really, just a couple of solid ones. I haven't followed new stuff from other genres as much. Pretty much just new releases from my old favourites or random acclaimed record here and there.
Themselves - Crownsdown, The Freehoudini Mixtape
Dose One and Jel decided to get back to basics with their material in 2009. Though 'going back to basics' doesn't tell us much coming from these two. I can't say these two records sound like their earlier ones. More like version of their influences i.e. classic rap records from late 80s/early 90s. Dose is in fast rap mode here with occasional singing and all that other stuff he does. Jel is bringing in dope drums as usual. The mixtape came first as sort of an intro to the LP, giving an idea of the sound we're gonna hear on the official album. They've used the opportunity to invite all their past collaborators from the hip hop field to join in. …

Have your say - is Hip-Hop (Alternative / Underground) your fave genre?
Hip-Hop has been a bit flat of late, sadly. Except in the case of this powerful industrial beast!

“JOSEPHINE” single release show
01.30.10 Music Hall of Williamsburg
What a fucking full sensory experience! I haven’t had so much fun at a show in a long time. The line-up was Finger on the Pulse, Burt fox, Telephoned, Cage and his band, and Cubic Zirconia. I thought I knew what I was in for, but honestly I had no idea. I went to this show under the guise of a hip-hop/dance performance, but what I got was so much more. There was a sexy dance troupe (LICK) performing to the music the DJs spun between sets. All things considered, it was the most well-oiled show I’ve been to! The flow from act to act was smoother than silk. The entire show was a celebration of the release of Cubic Zirconia’s raging second single, “Josephine.” It’s too bad PartyFM isn’t around anymore because I could totally hear the track being played on there. Telephoned performed some wicked dance renditions of pop songs, that I could totally also hear on PartyFM. …

26. Jan. 2010, 18:33 von AlexanderSteele10. The Dead Weather – Horehound
Dark, sexy, and full of Jack White's unique funk we've all come to know and love, the Dead Weather's 1st album surprised me, so much that I dare say they are my favorite of all of White's projects. The White Stripes, though catchy in their cool minimalism, got boring to me quickly, and the Raconteurs, an able attempt at a more layered rock sound, were a bit generic and not nearly daring enough to turn my ear. The Dead Weather cuts a fair balance between simplistic and complex, and adds plenty of dark undertones while doing it.
One thing that may surprise a lot of people, it's not fronted by Jack White. Even so, the Weather's female lead singer (previously of the Kills) has an enticing, jazzy hiccup to her voice, which adds an interesting amount of emotion to her delivery. The entire album is solid, easy to listen to but not without an amount of depth, both to the lyrics and the composition. As a bonus…
