A Real Music Video — NSFW El Guincho: Bombay

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Finally a music video that encompasses everything a music video should; sparkles, water, a fat man, a crow, girls, girls, girls, 70’s filter, a bit of science and a really good song. The video is actually a trailer for a film, called Bombay, directed by Nicolás Méndez. This is El Guincho’s, aka Pablo Díaz-Reixa, second album, “Pop Negro” which he mixed with Jon Gass (Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston), released by Young Turks / XL Recordings (The xx).  El Gincho grew up on the Canary Isles, the Spanish-owned archipelago off the coast of Northwestern Africa; starved for 80’s pop culture and later found a talent for music while in Paris and Barcelona. He describes his music as a kind of “space-age exotica”.

Bands Making Their Own Way

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

Bands Oasis and Jamiroquai are just two of the bands that are rumored to be following suit to give away their music. Neither of the two bands are currently working under recording contracts, which will allow them to experiment with the promotion of their new albums.

After Radiohead announced last week, that they would allow fans to download their music without charge, their site jumped from number 43 to number 1 of top UK music websites. HitWise, an internet monitoring agency recorded an 11-fold increase in internet hits after Radiohead made their announcement.

How do these bands intend to make money if they give their music away for free? Well they are counting on concert ticket sales and merchandise.

Several bands that are out of contract are planning to do the same. Robbie Williams’ management company said this of the concept, ““I think a lot could follow. You’ve got to be sure about your fan base but why would you sign your career away to a record label when CD sales are falling so rapidly?”

Brave regarding who? Us or her?
Now that the teenage, badass, ghetto “Jenny from the
block” image has long worn-off and JLo is finding it impossible
to generate any kind of buzz whatsoever, it’s time to get Brave!
And yes, her spawn is well under development, and with new
song titles like “Hold It Don’t Drop It”, I can only hope she is
talking about baby and not a Starbucks!

JLo, ya bore me!

Come get it!
