Ham Sandwich – Ride A White Horse (Goldfrapp cover)

20 Jul

This is by far the best cover of this song I have heard. Love the natural feel of the acoustic instruments and of course, her voice ist just fantastic.

(Ham Sandwich live at Tower Records, Dublin for the launch of State Magazine.)

Studio Killers – Ode to the Bouncer

19 Jul


The lovely animator/illustrator Eve Wineberg introduced me to the Studio Killers a couple weeks ago. I’ve been loving the provocative elements, mix of cg and traditional animation.
A Denmark/UK trio recently released the a teaser music video for their upcoming debut album. Already it’s started a buzz on the interwebs—partly due to the elusive air about them.

From what I’ve gathered, the Studio Killers are a female trio, Cherry (vocals) Goldie Foxx and Dyna Mink. Note these are aliases. The actual artists don’t prefer the spotlight (or perhaps it’s PR) and hired a animation/design shop to create avatars, giuving them a kind of Gorillaz front. I could continue to prattle on about this, but go ahead and check it out for yourself.

Eddie Vedder ‘Without You’ on ‘Letterman’

25 Jun

While we’re still a few months away from Pearl Jam’s big 20th anniversary fiesta in September, Eddie Vedder continues to do his own thing. He’s supporting his latest studio effort, Ukulele Songs, taking the Hawaiian-soaked tunes on the road. Last night, he trucked on over to The Ed Sullivan Theater to appear on the Late Show with David Letterman. “I really like this next guy,” Letterman admitted, alluding to their longtime friendship by adding, ”He was nice enough to give me a guitar, and it occupies a position of honor in my home.” Nice. Nearby, Letterman’s trusty partner-in-crime Paul Schaffer joked that he should get a ukulele this time around. Letterman shrugged, said it was up to Vedder, and sprinkled the introduction by insisting that the scruffy rocker’s “single handedly made playing the ukulele cool.”

Cool or not, Vedder maintained a strong presence as he sat on-stage alone. It’s hard to forget this man once dove head first into crowds, splintered stages apart, and dangled from ceiling rafters. Yet, as he strummed away at “Without You”, the light uke chords hinted at another strong facet to his character: the sage-like observer. Hey, the album might not draw you in, but it’s impossible to dismiss this guy when he’s at the mic. As Letterman stated, shortly after the performance, “If I had this voice, you could all kiss my ass.” Well, good start Dave, but you need the beard, the hair, and the 20+ years of authority, too.

Then we’ll talk.


*Vedder paid tribute to Clarence Clemons during the appearance. Vedder tributed the E Street Band member Clarence Clemons with the late sax legend’s first name painted across the front of his ukele; Clemons passed away last Saturday following a stroke at his Florida home.

Damon Albarn Plans Even More New Projects

23 Jun

Recording in Congo, possible Blur U.S. tour, instrumental album with Flea

Blur/Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn likes to stay busy. And a new Albarn profile in The Guardian gives us a bit more indication of just how busy Albarn will be in the coming months. Albarn’s big current project is his theatrical production Dr. Dee: An English Opera, a musical account of the life of Queen Elizabeth I’s medical and scientific advisor. Albarn wrote the opera, and he’ll also star in it; it premieres July 1-9 at the Manchester International Festival. But that’s just a tiny sliver of what Albarn has planned.

As The Guardian reports, after Dr. Dee wraps up its Manchester run, it’ll play next year at the London Coliseum as part of the Cultural Olympiad, in conjunction with the Olympics. Albarn is also planning to visit the Democratic Republic of the Congo soon for “a project in which DJs and producers will record and sample Congolese music, and aim to complete a record in not much more than a week.” The Guardianalso says that the reunited Blur “may” finally return to the U.S. to play a few shows. Um, yes please. (Asked about the possibility of any new Blur music, Albarn wasn’t willing to say much.)Last year, we reported that Albarn is also part of a new trio with Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and Fela Kuti drummer Tony Allen, the latter of whom was already Albarn’s bandmate in the Good, the Bad, and the Queen. According to The Guardian, the trio is finishing up work on a “mostly instrumental” album. Allen also contributes to the score of Dr. Dee, a production that, according to Albarn, is intended to evolve rather than to maintain a static existence.Below, check out video of Albern playing an acoustic version of “Apple Carts”, a song from Dr. Dee, on British TV.
