FALCONS

Introducing FALCONS and their new video for "Nigeria"


Little is known about this group but in their webpage we come to know that FALCONS "consists of Vancouver/ Oakland based musicians TightMike and KayleoStocko, whose musical tastes range from world music to southern rap, and everything in between". Their sound is absolutely amazing, combining soul vocals, R'n'B, uptempo beats, tri-hop, who knows...
A few days ago they released the video for "Nigeria"(Juicy Records) that you can see below and download for free here.



You can also check other sounds from FALCONS in their soundcloud page. Like this one. Enjoy.

The Weeknd - "Echoes of Silence"

The album isn't fresh new but it really deserve's to be apart of this blog.


Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd is a Canadian recording artist and record producer originally from Ethiopia. He's first album, House of Baloons, was considered one of the best in 2011 where few months earlier no one new the artist. After that the hype around Tesfaye grew and today he's considered one of the best up & coming artists of the year. He already released a second, Thursday, and third album, Echoes of Silence. This last one was released on December 21 and doesn't get behind or below the previous two. It's like a good mix of both of them. Our favorite one is "Initiation", a mix of tri-hop beats and vocal's distortion that results in a beautiful piece of the new 21st-century music art.



Nevertheless, the whole album is very good and justifies,and reinforces, the hype around the artist. You can stream and download the full album below.Enjoy.

The Internet

The Internet is a duo formed by dj, singer and producer Syd Tha Kid and producer Matt Martians from OFWGKTA ( Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All).


Their debut album, Purple Naked Ladies, was released on December 20, 2011. In general, the album isnt brilliant in the sense that doesn't bring anything new in their genre. It has some up's and downs's, more down's really, but there are some good exceptions like "Fastlane".  Combinig  some soul beats and Syd's smooth vocal, "Fastlane" is a chill journey throughout the crazy world of OFWGTKA. The official video was released on January 19. Enjoy.




Also, we leave you with a brilliant remix The Internet did on Lana Del Rey's "Blue Jeans".

Lianne La Havas - Forget (Official Video)

We love Lianne La Havas. We love her new video too.


Actually, we love more the acoustic version of "Forget" that is available for free in her Live in L.A. EP but that doesn't mean that this original version is bad, on the contrary. As we said before, expect big things from this girl in 2012. Enjoy.

Miike Snow – Paddling Out

 Just before the end of the week listen to a new track from Miike Snow.


Miike Snow droped a new track from their forthcoming album Happy To You that will be released in March. With some more electronic influence that we are used to from the band(not a bad thing), the music is dancier, intense and with very happy feelings into. It's a excellent preview form what the album could be. Enjoy.

Jhameel - Shut Up

Director, Producer, Performer, Editor e Choreographer...Jhameel did it all!


Jhameel himself raised all the money to make the video. In Kickstarter the artist stated that "The concept is much like a modern take on the music video for "The Way You Make Me Feel" by Michael Jackson in the sense that it is centered around dance". The result is an explosive video with some sick moves that results very well with the music. Enjoy.

Lianne La Havas

Rising artist, Lianne La Havas, is an English folk and soul singer that has been nominated for BBC's Sound of 2012 poll.


 In February 13, Warner Brothers will release her new EP called Forget as the lead single for Lianne La Havas' upcoming debut full-length. Her voice is a breath of fresh air and definitely an artist to reckoned this year.



As impressive as the original song, is the remix of Shlohmo. He places the amazing vocals in synth tones and hip-hop or post-dubstep beats. The result is a passionate and tremendous music. Big up to Shlohmo.
