Röyksopp Missed It So Much


After the success of their 2005 album The Understanding, Röyksopp missed it so much that their back with their new album Junior, which was released earlier this week. Junior features the likes of Robyn, Lykke Li, among a few others not really worth mentioning, Im not really sure why i even mentioned Robyn. Lykke Li tho has time and time again proved that she is the new Indie-Pop queen with the success of her 2008 album Youth Novel, which was heavily remixed and guest vocals for N.A.S.A.. The track Missed It So Much is no exception, with warm weather textured beats and Lykke Li's intoxicating feminine vocals, i've had it on repeat for days and i may have already played it out, maybe. Ahhhh here comes the sun, it seems like years since its been here.

Pretty Lights




"Pretty Lights is the musical vision of the ultra-versatile Colorado based producer Derek Vincent Smith, accompanied in the live setting by drummer, Cory Eberhard. Together these two achieve a raw energy rarely reached in the realm of electronic music. At a time when music lovers from almost all subcultures, and genres are finding common ground in the basic form of bangin' beats, Pretty Lights is giving the people what they want; electro organic cutting-edge party rocking beats that fill venues with energy and emotion, and send dance floors into frenzies. What makes Pretty Lights truly different tho, is that these beats have serious soul. Derek's latest album, "Filling Up The City Skies" is a two disc, 26 track journey through past, present, and future. He juxtaposes collages of beautiful vintage samples against backdrops of futuristic synthesis and dirty broken beats, creating a sound that can snap your neck while simultaneously shedding your tears. The album has been downloaded over 30,000 times from the Pretty Lights website in the short 3 months since its release, proving that the PL sound is not only getting around, it's spreading like a virus." - Jam Base
Sorry i couldnt give you my fresh assessment of Pretty Lights, I have to get to work and im in no mood to come up with some witty critique of a sound that at times is indescribable. Seriously tho this is the hot.
If you like what you hear you can give Pretty Lights a big myspace high-five and head over to their site to download the two albums. DOWNLOAD

John Mayer's Twitter Addiction


Twitter just turned 3 and most people i know are slowly becoming acquainted with the new social media outlet let alone the whole Twitter revolution thats swallowing the world. Usually i don't get into the celebrity gossip thing, i leave that to the pros like Perez Hilton and Pukee but when that gossip leaks into the social media world im all over it. According to UK's The Telegraph, Jennifer Anniston kicked John Mayer to the curb over his twittering ways. Apparently John Mayer was spending hours on Twitter, twittering away and telling Jen that he was too busy to get in touch with her. Twitter ruins lives.

Oh and no matter how much hype Rolling Stone gives to John Mayer i still feel hes one of the most underrated guitar players today.

Obama and the NCAA


Obama's a modern man who loves the fine game of BasketBall and the occasional bit of gambling. It's March Madness time with the start of the warm weather, Peakin' at the Beacon, and the first round of the NCAA championship. Everyones preparing/ed their brackets waiting to win that pot of gold at the end of the tournament and even our illustrious president has given a peak at what he thinks is in store. He's really a swell guy who knows a hell of a lot about a hell of lot, swell guy that Obama.

"The memory of Magic, and Bird, and [Greg] Kelser, all those guys … it was an unbelievable game, and invigorated not only college basketball but ultimately pro basketball as well," Obama said. "So for any kind of basketball fan, Indiana State-Michigan State, that still is one of the greatest games of all time."



"I can't be staying up until 2 in the morning man,
I've got work to do."

Ronald Jenkees

During some random searching on YouTube one day, I stumbled across a young gentleman by the name of Ronald Jenkees.  From a young age Ronald has just gotten keyboards, he received his first one as a christmas present when he was 6.  He didn't take to music lessons well, and instead simply taught himself how to play, all simply by ear.  This man, who appears to me to be some sort of 'mad scientist' or just downright genius, creates a variety of music ranging from techno to rock & roll with his trusty keyboards and a computer.  Here are a few tracks from his 2007 self-titled album as well as some video action of him playing at home!
