New favourite track: Origins by Tennis [or is it the other way round?]
So, having complained that there are in fact bugger all ‘ones to watch 2012′, I have been pointed in the direction of Red Kite. They release first single Montreal as a very limited edition on Dec 5, and if it’s anything to go by, a large part of 2012 might well be theirs.
So, after hours of listening to ‘ones to watch 2012′ tracks posted on Soundcloud by various PRs and record labels, the only one which really did it for me was Lana Del Ray’s Video Games, which has been kicking around for months now. Still, it is good. Like her description of herself as ‘the gangsta Nacy Sinatra’ too.
Current favourite song, Breaker by Low. Can’t stop playing it. Had it on constant loop for hours. Be warned though, the video will put you off cake forever.
Two amazing Japanese TV ads from the ’90s starring the one and only James Brown.
A prime example of how some people can be and can act so uncool that they become a whole new definition of cool. Far from being his ‘sell out’ moment, the ever individual Brown embraces the act of selling just-add-water-instant-noodles so fully, and with such complete disregard for what the viewing public might think of a legend of his stature and credibility quite literately selling his soul, that he delivers a soul-selling-noodle-ad like only James Brown could, and that in itself is amazingly cool. Misoba!
Trying to kick yesterday’s heavy heart back into life. Think this might just do it.
Such a good track.
Fantastic track from an incredibly stylish man.
