The Internet's constant rush of new music is great. But time and time again, audiences come back to the old stuff. As of last year, catalog sales outpace new music sales . People who lived in the era of whatever that "old stuff" is seek it out for nostalgia and young people who never lived in that music's era long for a time in music history they never lived in. But how does the constant rush of quality new music get winnowed down and become “old stuff” or canon? Converting the varied ages at New Orleans Jazz & [...]
We've been sitting on this track for over a month now, so we figured it's about time we show it some love, especially considering we've been listening to it non-stop. If you put a track like this, with it's crunchy synths and heavy-hitting basslines, in front of us it's pretty much guaranteed we're going to love it. This collaboration between London's funk aficionado Blende and the Istanbul-based duo Surrender! is amazing, and the comparisons to the sounds of Justice and Daft Punk are easily justified. Circus is one cut off Synapse, their three track EP released [...]

Michael Jackson, 1978 1978 was a year when it was hard to find anything that came close to R&B that wasn't wrapped in polyester and smothered in a strobe light. 1979 was a bit better, though, with the debut of Prince, a classic album by Michael Jackson and the last great single by Issac Hayes making up the Top 10 R&B hits of the year. 10. Prince - "I Wanna Be Your Lover" When he showed up on his first album wearing panties and stockings, it was safe [...]
Back When… Rappers still put Oliver samples in their raps. We need more of that.

Despite popular belief due to the name of a famous American sitcom it's not always sunny in Philadelphia. Even for a group like the wonderful retro-pop newcomers WORK DRUGS, who are currently one of the blogosphere's most buzzed bands it seems. The wave band around masterminds Thomas Crystal and Benjamin Louisiana prefers the sunny side
L'idea è venuta a Frederic Forestier e Thomas Langmann, due giovani registi francesi. Ed è stata subito un successo: fare un film a base musicale ripescando alcune delle più grandi stelle del proscenio New Wave ma anche della Varietè Française ed in generale del Pop anni '80. Francesi e belgi, soprattutto, ma non solo. Il titolo: Stars80. Nel film e nella colonna sonora troviamo anche artisti di altri paesi compresa l'Italia. Niente di inventato, sia chiaro: il film racconta in chiave comica uno dei più grossi successi della storia musicale francese recente, ovvero [...]

But what is really amazing about this Earth Wind and Fire song is the trippy music video! It is spacey, psychedelic and retro-futuristic. I don't know if Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter watched the video before forming Daft Punk , [...]
