Q-TIP: Man Woman Boogie
Q-TIP - New Music Video - Man Woman Boogie Q-Tip | Myspace Music Videos Latest music video from Q-TIP’s recent release The Renaissance. Glad to see Q-TIP back on the scene having fun and doing it in style. Lovin’ the bass player and the fact that the video takes place in a subway car. Ya it gets a little cheesy at the end, but hey you can’t pass on an impromptu underground...

Modern Times: Evade Against the Machine
United Artists 1936 Leave it to an old silent film to be one of the best comedic commentaries to reflect the economy of the past and yes, even the present economy. Like the wheel that fits just right, Modern Times may be Charlie Chapin’s tour de force. Made amidst the Great Depression, it’s fascinating to see just how similar life can be in any age when suffocated by society. And if...
Lydia - Illuminate
Low Altitude Records Released: September 16, 2008 Fans of Copeland, Number One Fan, or Eisley will find Lydia a great addition to their muisc collection. If you’re looking for some new tunes, then may I suggest Lydia’s Illimunate. I stumbled upon this album through Amazon MP3’s daily deal and I’m so glad I did. As a big fan of the now disbanded Number One Fan, I think...
Abandon - Abandon EP
Forefront Records Released: July 22, 2008 Wedged between The Killers and Mute Math, Abandon’s self-titled EP is a good starter for this new 5-piece from Texas. Abandon has the goods to really break in to Christian market with a bang, but I can’t say it’s because they are completely original—but then again, who is anymore? As usual, a friend of mine turned me on to...
Where The Light Is: John Mayer Live In Los Angeles

I was browsing the music videos section of Red and came across this incredible cover of “Free Fallin” [seriously, click this link, you...
Coldplay - Prospket's March EP
Capitol Records Released: November 24, 2008 Coldplay’s latest EP is simply an extension of Viva La Vida and a darn good one at that. I reported a while back how you could purchase this album for 99 cents which is amazingly cheap, but by no means is that a reflection of the quality of this album. In fact, that’s pretty much a steal for this new 8 song EP they’re calling...
