The City Has Eyes

29 04 2009

nighteyesIf you happen to be in the mood for some local, weird, electro-pop, I suggest you check out, Eyes. Wicked popular in the U.K. (on Seed Records), somehow unsigned in the U.S., I personally like these guys because they entice people to attend their shows by saying that they want to make babies with them. That’s my kind of band, kids.  Check Eyes out here – http://www.myspace.com/iieyes

The Hip-Hop Violinist

24 04 2009

I like to think that I have my finger on the pulse when it comes to music, but every once in a while, artists get by me. Miri Ben-Ari is one such artist. I had the pleasure of learning of Ms. Ben-Ari’s amazing musical ability last weekend when I saw her perform at the opening of the Illinois Holocaust Museum. I was mesmerized. This Grammy winning artist is a classical violinist who has crossed the tracks to the urban music scene having worked with a various sundry of hip-hop superstars including Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Wyclef Jean.

Miri Ben-Ari came to America from Israel by herself, with no money, and unable to speak English. Her incredible skill with the violin and ability to think ahead of musical trends has made her a superstar. Check her out, I guarantee that you will fall in love. Below is Miri Ben-Ari’s video for her latest hit, Symphony of Brotherhood, featuring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Oh, did I mention that she’s a civil rights activist and incredibly beautiful as well? Yeah. Falling in love over here.

Justice Remixes Lenny Kravitz

24 04 2009

I love Justice. I used to love Lenny Kravitz when I was a hormonal teenager in the 90’s. Therefore, despite the obvious tone of, “this is crap” in the stereogum article that I read this morning, I was still excited to see that Justice has remixed the Kravitz song, Let Love Rule. Even more exciting, you can get it for free on Lenny Kravitz’s web site if you sign up for his email list.

Free music for the price of your email address. It reminds me of when I used to sign up for credit cards in college for a free tee-shirt. My parents weren’t so happy when I came home for summer break after my freshman year with ten new tee-shirts and ten new credit cards. Clearly the lesson wasn’t learned as I gladly gave my email address in exchange for the free Justice remix this morning. It’s not the best that I’ve ever heard from either artist, but it’s worth the download. Check it out here.

Röyksopp Brings Robyn To First TV Appearance In Years

22 04 2009

Röyksopp hasn’t had a television appearance in seven years, so I guess if you’re going to make a comeback, you might as well do it right. The Norwegian duo teamed with Robyn at Senkveld to perform the track that she guests on, The Girl And The Robot. Enjoy.
