killers

A legendary director, live animals, and a Killer(s) show.

OK, I admit it.  I cave into my musical crushes on a daily basis.  My latest one hails from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and his album Signs & Signifiers makes me wanna back comb my hair, smack my gum and shake what the good Lord gave me.  Close your eyes and for a moment you might […]

Willie’s still the man

Not that we needed any further proof, but a little reminder every once in a while doesn’t hurt.  Check out his cover of Pearl Jam’s “Just Breathe,” and go merrily into your holiday weekend.  Happy Friday, y’all. Gini.

Bahamas standard (prime) time

Check out Bahamas on World Cafe Bahamas opened for Noah & The Whale at Club Dada last summer and my life hasn’t been the same since.  Frontman Afie (yes, that’s AY-fee, not Alfie) Jurvanen and Co. stole my heart and swallowed it in a single gulp.  And did you hear them on World Cafe the other night?  If not, just […]

Bhi Bhiman.  Pronunciation-wise, think “bee” – then “beeman.”  You’ve got it!  He’s the second-generation Sri Lankan-American songsmith destined to win the hearts and ears of the 2012 SXSW crowd – and hopefully yours, too.  Thirty Tigers has just put out his second album – simply titled Bhiman.  It’s a subtle, soulful investment – well worth your time.  […]

Francophiles and sci-fi freaks, this one’s for you.  French electro-duo Air was commissioned to come up with the soundtrack for the newly-restored and colorized ‘Le Voyage dans la Lune’, the 1902 classic from ‘cinemagician’ Georges Méliès.  Check out NPR’s interview with Nicolas and Jean- Benoit and the history of the restoration project via the Academy of Motion […]

What’s sweeter than a dozen Gold of Kinbalu orchids or a special delivery from Dude, Sweet Chocolate or Coco Andre?  Dallas duo Smile Smile’s “Tempo Bledsoe” getting some national attention in the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Valentine’s Day commercial, that’s what.  Go, Ryan and Jencey!

http://www.youtube.com/watch/?v=isfQZhCXhOM Before the grinchiness and/or cynicism kicks in, try this one on for size.  It’s Matt Pond PA’s muy brilliante cover of Lindsey Buckingham’s “Holiday Road,” from the 1983 Chevy Chase blockbuster, National Lampoon’s Vacation.  I dare you to be in a bad mood after hearing this.  Go on.  I double-dawg dare you. – Gini M.
