The Child of Lov — “One Day” [ft. Damon Albarn]
Off of soulfully funky sounding up-and-coming Cole Williams’ aka The Child of Lov’s debut album, Pineapple Camel Funk (released on Monday!), which also features MF DOOM on another track (listen here). If this LP isn’t going to be a hit and still be the most fan-funkin’-tastic album since Gnarls Barkley’s St. Elsewhere I don’t know what is.
Shameless plug: Call me a hipster, but my music side-blog Tunebrothel has been posting about this dope dude since he came out with his very first (badass) song, so why don’t you check out if you like that blog enough to follow it?
Queens of the Stone Age — “I Sat By the Ocean” (live)
New track off of their newest album, “…Like Clockwork.” Sounds wicked! Love the octaver pedal and Josh’s falsetto.
Beck reimagines David Bowie’s “Sound and Vision”
In collaboration with Chris Milk, who directed the performance, Beck and an orchestra of more than 160 diverse musicians, including the Dap-Kings, a string orchestra, a gamelan ensemble, members of the USC marching band, a Peruvian charango group, choirs, guitarists, a musical saw player, a harpist, a Theremin player, and Beck’s dad David Campbell as the conductor, covered Bowie’s Low classic “Sound and Vision,” live at Fox Studios, L.A., this week. This is the most amazing thing you will hear and see today.
Video is private now, here’s an alternative link.
David Bowie — Where Are We Now? (music video, dir. Tony Oursler)
Imagine that. A decade after giving us his last studio album, Major Tom is home and about to release another LP. It’s called “The Next Day” and is accompanied by some provocative cover art. The record’s out on March 11th, but you can already listen to its first single and watch its video today, which incidentally is also Mr. Bowie’s 66th birthday! The video was directed by Tony Oursler and correlates with the song’s lyrics reflecting on Bowie’s time spent in Berlin in the 70s.
Bowie is back.
