Video Wave!

M.I.A. - Galang: I don't know much about this artist other than M.I.A. are totally awesome and they're on XL Recordings. The beat is rad- full of electro bass squelches and all sorts or random synth noise. The video is something fantastic too. These have to be the best collection outfits any one pop singer has worn in one video ever. It was directed by Ruben Fleischer who has also done videos for Wiley, Ellen Alien, Electric Six and Dizzee Rascal among others.

Rozzetta- Fantasy: This video was made by a Swedish girl named Jenny Mortsell as part of her Graphics design masters degree. She cranked out an awesome piece of Italian Disco with the help of producer Karel Post and a hairdresser named Lilli. I know the inclusion of the hairdressor seems unnessecary here, but I just don't believe people can make this kind of music without the right hairdo. Okay. Watch the video, you'll see what I mean.

I am due for a large shipment of records in the mail this week, so hopefully I will once again have music to post.

Shout outs to Stuart at 20jazzfunkgreats who has some great tracks up this week from the likes of Dead Combo (including a live cover of Bowie's Let's Dance done at CBGB's) Martin Rev and Xinlisupreme and a first annual Suicide week. Suicide being the "band" not the "act of."

M.I.A is an Englishwoman by way of Sri Lanka. Galang first appeared on a promo Mix CD put out by EMI/Astralwerks for the launch of the Richard X album in summer 2003. Great mix - also the first appearance of Jackson's remix of M83's "Run Into Flowers".

Anyway, "Galang" was produced by Ross from Fat Truckers and Steve Mackey of Pulp. It was originally promo'ed on ShowBiz records, and has been floating around for just over a year. Maya (M.I.A.) got signed to XL shortly after and recently put out a second single, "Sunshowers" which is pretty good too - though the b-side "Fire Fire" exceeds it.

Galang is coming out in the US in the next month or so. Still a banger.
