Chill Bump

Do you like hip-hop with a side of wobble. Chill…. I got you covered with a little Chill Bump. Hip-Hop is definitely not dead, as Chill Bump proclaims in their massive song “It’s Alive!”. These guys sound like a cupcake baked with a little Yelawolf/Eminem MC sprinkle and iced with that milky/buttery soft wobble that even your grandmother will want to sink her teeth into – no matter whether they are fake or not. Follow the link above for a free download of thier EP, if these songs ignite your salivary glands.

10 Bands You Should Be Listening To.

I don’t think it is possible for Of Monsters and Men to produce any music that is not worthy of a listen. This band is for the Edward Sharpe/Mumford and Sons lover. They have one of the most solid albums out today from A to Z.

Of Monsters and Men – Little Talks

The next Eric Clapton, is straight out of the ATX? I don’t know, but the buzz around Gary Clark Jr. is pretty intense. He was definitely one of the headliners of SXSW, and has gotten some outstanding press as of late. For good reason. The one show I want to see more than anything right now.

Gary Clark Jr. – Bright Lights

I did get to see the Alabama Shakes and their lead singer turned abso-f’n ROCK goddess during SXSW. Not only was I impressed, I was sold. I will follow every movement the Shakes make from this point on. They freaking kill it live, and any crowd will love the Janis Joplin/Tracy Chapman esque performance that Brittany Howard will slap your face with. Get their debut album Boys and Girls, April 10th.

Alabama Shakes – Hold On

This is just some plain good upbeat music. These guys constantly produce solid song after song.

Savoir Adore – Dreamers

Thanks to a recommendation from a friend I recently started listening to Cloud Control and haven’t turned back. You can littleraly put on their album and just let go for a while.

Cloud Control – Gold Canary

The  – “Oh yeah, by the way we haven’t even graduated from UGA yet” group, who brings a energy packed show that would be expected of any college aged kids, who seem to be just as trilled with their talent as everyone else in the crowd. One of the best live shows I saw at SXSW, easily.

Reptar – Stuck in my ID

Humor. One liners. Beats. Culture. Das Racist is blowing up. Don’t miss out.

Das Racist – Rainbow in the Dark

This is what I call “Happy Indie.” Makes you want to be on a boat with a popsicle and a Margarita. If you like Vampire Weekend you will surely dig Hooded Fang.

Hooded Fang – Straight Up The Dial

For the sensitive soul, Motopony will scratch your back. Or for anyone making the preverbal mixtape for their female friend… Motopony should be where you turn first.

Motopony – Wait For Me

This is my favorite song on the whole list. For some reason Orange Blossom just captures “cool” for my ears. At any point and time you might catch me listening to Gardens & Villa.

Gardens & Villa – Orange Blossom

Outdoor Bar that could be a DIY

Now this is a perfect example of if you can dream it – you can build it! loll Designs has “designed” this seemingly simplistic boy scout afternoon project and is charging $400 for it!!!! But, you can get it in any color. Screw that, I admit it is a cool thing that I would buy at a better price, but at $400 – go to Home Depot and buy some wood and materials.

Gardens and Villa – Orange Blossom

Gardens & Villa – Orange Blossom

Gardens & Villa on “Orange Blossom” :

This is one of our favorite songs on the album. It’s playful, sexy, woozy, and really dirty. We had this studio in the back of our old house that we rehearsed in, and after practice I was messing around with this funky guitar pedal on my bass. I was trying to emulate some old Sly Stone tracks by myself with the new sound. Everyone was having a cigarette outside listening to me play and slowly started filtering back in and adding little parts along with it. Adam added the drunken synth chords and chris jokingly brought in his flute to play along with us. Little did we know that the song would become the crux of the album and flute would be used all over the tracks as well. It became a gateway to the feel of the album as a whole.

Kanye and Jay-Z’s Otis Video Maybach to be auctioned…

Last year Jay-Z and Kanye West destroyed an amazingly expensive Maybach in the Spike Jonze-directed video for their Grammy Award-winning song “Otis”.” Now the duo are auctioning off that decimated car for charity. The vehicle will sell at Phillips de Pury auction house in New York on March 8, 2012 with proceeds going towards Save The Children. The 2004 Maybach 56 expected to sell for between $100,000 and $150,000, much less than its original sticker price of $350,000.


Texans give more money to Colbert’s PAC than to Romney’s

WASHINGTON – How popular is comedian Stephen Colbert’s semi-serious Super PAC, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow?

In Texas, it’s more popular that Mitt Romney’s leading Super PAC.

Federal Election Commission records examined by the Houston Chronicle indicate more Texans have donated to Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow than to the pro-Romney Restore Our Future.

Colbert, a popular TV satirist, created Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow as a means of educating his cable audience on how Super PACs could affect the 2012 presidential election.

Donating twice

Houston resident Rebecca Stewart is the among the Texas donors. She says she decided to donate not because she was a fan of Colbert’s Comedy Central, but because she was upset with the Supreme Court’s ruling that led to the Super PAC craze.

The Supreme Court decision “just opened the doors for election to be bought and sold,” said Stewart, who has made two donations of $250 since the Colbert Super PAC began. Colbert “took something complicated and brought it to a level where they show what it is and how it works and what a Super PAC can be.”

$6,716 from Texans

By the end of January, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow raised $1,044,615 – $6,716 from individuals citing a Texas address.

While the amount raised by the Colbert Super PAC is dwarfed by the tens of millions of dollars presidential campaigns have received, it did better than Romney’s Super PAC in Texas, with 17 donors over $200 compared to Restore Our Future’s 15.

“I think (Colbert) has a large fan base and a lot of younger educated people feel the same way,” said Lauren Schmied, another Houston resident who contributed $250 to the Colbert Super PAC. “I think a lot of people are waiting to donate.”

Mary Boyle, a spokesperson for Common Cause, a nonpartisan campaign reform advocacy group, said the number of Colbert donors was “significant” and speaks to the Super PAC’s success in educating millions.

“I think he has played a role in helping to raise that awareness,” Boyle said.
