Were Beach House to up roots and relocate to the West Coast, only to find themselves further perturbed by the heinously superficial Californian default MO, they'd doubtless wind up sounding like Los Angelino trio Boardwalk . The troop comprising Mike Edge, Amber Quintero and lead guitarist Alex Scally Mark Noseworthy may be yet to emerge from the looming shadow of the Baltimore duo, but with début track I'm To Blame they lay down some astonishingly solid foundations to build upon, with Quintero's spectral coo perfectly matched by whirring organ drones, rudimentary drum machine tones and dizzying guitar lines blearily awakening [...]
If you aren't familiar with Submotion Orchestra before reading this post, then I am very upset with you, go and sit on the naughty step. Now come back, because these guys need to become firmly wedged in your cerebral cortex... Hailing from the English city of Leeds, the multi-instrumental collective formed in 2008, unleashing their unique blend of soul, electronica, dubstep and jazz on unsuspecting crowds - since then the seven-strong posse have developed a large and varied fan base - and rightly so. They really know music. The guys (and gal!) in the band [...]
It's true man. It's changed me. Ladies and Gents, last weekend, a glorious sun-soaked weekend I made my way to Manchester in order to bask in the glow of Parklife Festival . Now then, let me tell you a little something about Parklife. Three years ago, in 2010, Parklife was teeny tiny small. A one day event, in a medium sized city centre park, Parklife attracted all student types in a 50 mile radius. However this year - Parklife graduated. Moving to the 600 acre situation of Heaton Park , the festival has expanded to a [...]
Is anyone even listening to The Dream's music, coz DAMN these videos are the heat. Words on the street be like "twerk it", "express yourself" ... The Dream speaks of "equestrian"... poetry. Part 3 of the "IV PLAY " hype.
By now, everyone knows the drill when The-Dream drops a new IV Play video, right? Don't press play if there's another human being within a 20 foot radius. Filthy McNasty Nash didn't just cast one chick to do his dirty; this time there are two! Again, NSFW but safe to enjoy. Previously - Here’s To Hoping The-Dream Drops A Naughty Video For Every ‘IV Play’ Song
Italo Dreams by Aufeinneues on Mixcloud Anscheinend muss es nur spät und warm genug in der Nacht werden, damit ich in eine Youtube-Schleife fallen kann. Es ist eigentlich unwichtig, nach welchem Italo-Klassiker ich eigentlich suchte. Auch als ich ihn gefunden hatte, konnte ich nicht aufhören, mich entlang der Youtube-Vorschläge von einem Video zu fünf weiteren zu hangeln, in einem schier endlos erscheinenden Strudel aus überwiegend mäßig guten, aber dann auf einmal doch immer wieder so [...]
CAUTION: PEEP THIS ALONE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS This power threesome, The Dream featuring Beyonce and 2 Chainz colabs to produce yet another ratchet ass clapping track and video enough to cause a natural disaster in a bathtub. Part 2 of The Dreams new album hype, appropriately named "IV PLAY"
R&B songsmith turned troubadour The-Dream teamed up with a few musically inclined friends last night for a performance of "Too Early" on Fallon. Between house band The Roots and guitar wiz Gary Clark Jr., Dream had all of his instrumental bases covered, and the power trio put on one heck of a sultry performance. Catch [...]
The-Dream performed "Too Early" with Gary Clark Jr. and the Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Watch the video below: ...
In continued support of his new album, IV , The-Dream appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. He was joined by guitar prodigy Gary Clark Jr. and The Roots for a terrific rendition of "Too Early" - watch the replay below.
The-Dream has been channeling R. Kelly to varying degrees his whole career. It’s never been full-on imitation, more like tasteful (or because it’s R. Kelly, sometimes tasteless) homage. From dedicating the closing song on Love vs. Money – his second and arguably best album – to Kelly’s 12 Play , to sharing his predecessor’s penchant for amusingly blunt songwriting, the connection has always been noticeable, if not omnipresent. When The-Dream retitled his fifth solo album IV Play , it seemed like yet another overt tip of the cap. But any attempt [...]
I've been a fan of Denmark's Jens-Ulrik Kleeymeyer for about a year now, and I just now discovered that he is also a member of another favorite of The Record Stache, Green Lives . If these names are new to you, please do yourself a huge favor and look them up. You'll thank me later. Recently, Jens released the "Dolphin Version" of his song, "Land". The new take isn't too far removed from the original's sound, but it definitely fits with the rapidly warming weather. Have a listen to both versions below. Oh, and keep up with [...]

Who knows how many of these saucy, softcore IV Play visuals The-Dream has up his sleeve, but who's complaining? For his latest entry, Mr. Nash gives hound dogs everywhere another NSFW video, this time for the track "Turnt," featuring 2 Chainz and Beyonce. If we're being critical, the only way he could've improved this is to have asked Beyonce to participate in the video. That's just being picky (and wishful!) though. Anyway, hide your kids and the wife. It's about to go down as soon as you hit play. [...]
Get your 3d glasses out kids and prepare for a hypnotic journey of light and color. Manhattan via Montreal's xSDTRK music started with a foundation in classical piano, and you can hear these roots in his chord progressions. Add some pulsating 808 percussion, twitching synths, and ethereal vocal samples from Coco Baudelle and you have a track that is simultaneously massive and intimate. The video is an absolute wonder to watch, 3d or not, s/o to the director Geoff Webb . You can also grab an mp3 of this track right here . [...]
True fans of music spend countless hours searching for that next great song, album or artist, whether it be online or in a local record shop. The beautiful thing about music in today’s age is that technology has created an infinite supply of great music that is available to us at the click of a mouse. How perfect is that? We can discover a brand new artist on the opposite side of the globe in seconds without a radio or a music television channel. It only makes sense that a website so dedicated to this gorgeous universe of music would [...]
A song called Pussy obviously has a NSFW video, but we give you the packshot of The Dream 's album, so you will know what's that weird thing on her pussy.
Mp3: DREAMS - ღ MEMORIES OF LOVE ღ
You may have read last week that David Byrne and St. Vincent have followed up their excellent Love This Giant album from last year with a new EP entitled Brass Tactics . Apart from the fact that it contains a previously unreleased track, the most notable thing about the EP is that they're giving it away for free, making it the latest addition to an ever-increasing volume of music that you can download — legally! — for free right now. There's so much, in fact, that it's kind of overwhelming. [...]
