Another wild track from that Free Amazon sampler, "Scandinavian Gold."
This time it's Wildbirds and Peacedrums' "There is No Light." Wildbirds and Peacedrums hail from Sweden and are made up of husband and wife duo Mariam Wallentin and Andreas Werliin. This track can be found on their album "The Snake," but you can also download it along with a few other tracks I've been listening to for free by clicking on the "Scandinavian Gold" album cover below.
Bonus Video: If that wasn't stripped down enough for you - here Wildbirds and Peacedrums take the song to the street:
Die Antwoord are more than just the greatest Zef Rappers in the world - they bring their shit to the ultimate next level and that level just happens to be the paranormal.
It's not enough that Ninja and Yo-Landi brighten our lives with some amazing rap, they now also provide important public service announcements. Watch as Die Antwoord go in search for the South African demon, The Tokoloshe. There is definitely fear in the streets, but our heros get to the root of the evil and refuse to leave us hanging with the problem - watch as they visit a witch doctor to find a solution!
This video may not be safe for work, however, I guess it all depends on where you work.
You can also find The Tokoloshe featured in Die Antwoord's "Evil Boy" video - Click Here.
Thanks to Pitchfork for turning me on to this great video of former Bikini Kill singer, Kathleen Hanna, telling her story of an evening that got a bit out of hand, the planting of the seeds to a song that changed contemporary rock and roll, and the personal effect, or rather domino effect, it continued to make on her life.
The story is a touching, bittersweet and funny tribute to friendship, loss of innocence and the recklessness of youth. Kathleen punctuates the story with a rousing version of her Riot Grrrl anthem "Rebel Girl."
This video should be considered NSFW.
Bonus video: Kathleen lends her dance skills to Sonic Youth's "Bull In The Heather" video.
The Puppini Sisters - Lipstick, jewels, vintage threads and a soulful lament for all our financial woes! Hopefully these three chicks realize that they still have plenty going on for themselves...and that they will eventually find that missing "cash."
Rockin' out with my fave down and dirty French blues band - Jesus Volt! This song is from their album "In Stereo" which has to be their most consumer friendly titled album when you see it sitting next to "Electro Button Funky Coxx" and "Halleluyah Motherfuckers" - Strangely, all albums in my mom's record collection!!!
All of Jesus Volt's albums rock out with a great mix of bad ass, grungy blues and funk. Jesus Volt tours pretty consistently throughout Europe, but have yet to cross the waters to the United States - come on guys - get those passports in order and take a tour of the land littered with voodoo infested motel rooms!
Plus, Bonne anniversaire a Magic Doudous! Kick out the Jams!
