  (::MADE:: IN:: HEIGHTS:: “Skylark Interabang?!”) Like all the cool stuff I’m listening to of late, I first heard this one on 91.5 (KEXP.org). It’s by far the best music station in NYC.     Here are my STORIES and info on my Novels

Crystal Castles – “Not In Love” feat. Robert Smith

 (Crystal Castles – “Not In Love” feat. Robert Smith) The version of this video is in high def. so give it some time to load up. This is a fantastic electonica song with some samples that sound like they date back to OMD’s Dazzle Ships album in the early 80’s.   (I think this is the […]

http://youtu.be/JpNPl06z0e4   (Video) Here I am on a Friday night thinking this is the best song ever… Whatever. (Live audio) (Joy Division – Stephen Morris, Ian Curtis, Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook – uncredited) Here are my STORIES and info on my Novels

Tonstartssbandht – “Black Country” – Song

  (Tonstartssbandht  – “Black Country”) I heard this song a few times on 91.5. Kexp. Tonstartssbandht sampled Big Country’s “In a Big Country.” The melody also reminds me of the Icicle Works song, “Whisper to a Scream.” As far as the video, all I can say is that it had the best audio I could find.

(MGMT live at Leeds & Reading Festival – “Kids”) MGMT is one of my favorite new bands of the past few years. The music video below for “Kids” has close to 30 million hits on YouTube. So I guess I’m not alone… (MGMT – “Kids” music video)   (MGMT – Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, L-R) Here […]

“Ceremony” – New Order vs. Joy Division

 (Joy Division – “Ceremony”) I would image the above version of “Cermony” is the famed tape that was the bridge between Joy Division and New Order after Ian Curtis’ death. I think I had read how Bernard Sumner had to work to decipher the lyrics. Then New Order re-recorded the song. (New Order – “Ceremony”) The […]

Our Slavery did not begin with slave ships – Music Video

Filed under Everything Else, Music, Video

This is a fantastic video. Great images. Great song. I guess the music is a remix of Nas’ “If I Ruled The World.” The title of the documentary segment is “It Started With Slave Ships.” I think someone added the music and retitled the piece on YouTube as “Our Slavery did not begin with slave ships.” There is also […]
