Tuxedo – “Number One”

Music for… the lovers out there who still express themselves through the art of the mixtape. But this ‘aint no sappy filler track, this is the ‘put that wine down and dance wit me girl’ jam you should be opening side A with. Let her know of the bat you mean serious, sexy business.

Location: West Coast, same as 1/2 of Tuxedo, Los Angeles’ Mayer Hawthorne.

Future: More “slaps & claps” here. The full length album on Stones Throw Records 3.3.15

[VIDEO] Music Video Roundup – 6.29.2013

Music-Video-Roundup

Boom! Another collection of eye wrinkling weirdness passed off as music videos. You know I don’t like em unless they have some meat in em. I say that metaphorically but two of this weeks videos have meat of some kind… Robin Thicke’s ubiquitous sex jam has an even sexier NSFW unrated video you need to be watching. Plus Wavves has actual animal flesh. Mayer Hawthorne just has actual animals. Acting like people. Story of the Running Wolf has people acting like mythical creatures. And J.views has dancing and levitating. Get weird! Read more

TBE-DIGEST-30

Brandon’s TBE Digest 30 – [11.3.2011] New Jams, Remixes, & Covers!

Artwork by Jacob Youngblood Ziegler

Brandon’s TBE Digest is a place where I gather up all the recent jams that are worth a listen (or 10) but don’t necessarily need their own post. Here you will find new tracks by known bands, remixes, covers, and even mashups if they are interesting. My favorites of the lot are in bold.

A big batch of goodies this time round. Plus, since it’s a nice round number Jacob Youngblood Ziegler hooked us up with a fancy Anniversary Edition of the TBE Digest art. Stare at it in awe as you listen.

For more jams by any of these artists use the ‘tags’ links at the bottom of the post!

NEW RELEVENT JAMS

♫ Phantogram – Don’t Move / Phantogram return with the Nightlife EP and this is a great sign of the continued sexiness these two are working with.

♫ Body Language – Seeds of Sight / More spaced out sex funk from one of Brooklyn’s finest.

Vacationer – Gone  While not nearly as good as previous track “Trip” this shows good promise of more magic to come from this Body Language collaborator.

REMIXES

♫ Katie Herzig – Free My Mind (RAC Remix) / Like I said yesterday, there is no Read more

How Do You Do

[QUICKIE] Mayer Hawthorne – HOW DO YOU DO

♫ Mayer Hawthorne – Can’t Stop (ft. Snoop Dogg)

Ok album. Easy listening but the debut’s magic charm is missing somehow. But sweet video for “The Walk” and I like Snoop’s appearance. 5/10

[Quickies are mini-reviews that can fit into a 140 character tweet. They are of albums that people already know of but perhaps are curious about our take on it. What did you think of the disc?]
