Cold War – Janelle Monae

We typically reserve the music posts for Friday, but we just realized this masterpiece is back online.

For all of you who didn’t quite fit in, like us … this came out before Katy and Gaga:

“I try to find my peace. I was made to believe there’s something wrong with me. And it hurts my heart! Lord have mercy ain’t it plain to see?”

Watch the whole thing. Please watch. It’s a Cold War.

Friday Music – tUnE-yArDs, Bizness

These kids are taking “Captain! My Captain!” to a whole new level. And we like it. It’s too nice out to write a blog, so enjoy this video from the tUnE-yArDs. Hope it brings as much sunshine to your day as we’re enjoying in LA!

Friday Music: Lykke Li – I Follow Rivers

We are loving the newly released Wounded Rhymes by Lykee Li. Here she is performing a stripped down version of “I Follow Rivers” at Victor Wynd’s Little Shop of Horrors.

Music for your Friday listening enjoyment

Walkabout (feat. Noah Lennox) – a song by Atlas Sound we totally dig – just came up on our iTunes. Then we found a video for it featuring a rocket! Jackpot! So, what did you want to be when you grew up? Are you doing it? We’re not, but this social media thing wasn’t around in the 80s when we were kids.

Music for Friday afternoon

We’re loving Erykah Badu‘s hypnotic song “Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long” off her recent New Amerykah Part II: Return of the Ankh. Lucky us: the video, directed by Flying Lotus, is cool as hell, too. It even features a rocket at the end! Enjoy. We did.
