In case you missed it - You shouldn't have, but just in case you did.
Another strange week of my existence being overtaken by Netflix and Crosstown Doughnuts. It's actually go to the point where I want to do guest posts on my own music blog about things that aren't music. Because rarely I do actually like some things in this universe and I think it would be cool to share those in some capacity. But at the same time, I already have quite a lot on so... who knows.
Keep up to date with all of the daily goings-on over at WIIHAMB Daily.
You know when you’ve been waiting on something for so long, you didn’t actually even know you were waiting on it? No, me neither until I realised it’s 2015 and Sam Manville aka FTSE is only just about to release his debut album. It’s really difficult to describe what FTSE’s music sounds like, which is completely fine because you can just listen to it right here, but ‘post punk hip hop’ on Manville’s Soundcloud page seems to sum it up quite nicely.
Cool things that I did not know: Digital Farm Animals is from London and he is just one guy. Cool thing that I did know: new DFA single ‘True’ is a massive house BANGER. I’m really into the video, like really into it, and I’m not sure that I totally understand the entire concept but it all looks pretty sick and there are guns and a car chase and lots of animal masks.
Look, I know it’s been a mere four days since I last posted Kwabs, and I know I’ve already posted a 2014 track that Fetty Wap has breathed new life into this month, BUT IT’S BEEN EXACTLY A YEAR SINCE I FIRST POSTED ‘WALK’ SO IT’S MEGA TOTES RELEVANT AND STUFF. *Deep breath.* ‘Walk’ was and still is incredible in its own right and Fetty Wap doesn’t rrrreally add much to this other than some lolz and ‘1738′s and that’s fine, I guess.
‘Loves The Jobs You Hate’ sounds new and fresh and cool. This track is the first to be taken from the duo’s forthcoming ‘Over Lover’ EP due out at the start of September. I’m really into the “go fuck yourself” line and the proceeding “oooohhhhh”, that’s nice, that “oooohhhhh” bit, clever, that is.
I actually really didn’t like Kelis when I was younger, I don’t know why, I loved ‘Milkshake’, but wasn’t particularly fussed about anything else. At 22, I can now see the error of my ways. ‘Millionaire’ is great, right, and I think it was Andre 3000′s verse in the middle that I didn’t really like here, but that’s great too. The video is also PRETTY DAMN GENIUS.
So I’m not really into this whole punk/grunge/emo/whatever it is thing that’s really big at the moment, it’s just not for me. BUT I LOVE THIS. Iona Cairns’, of Great Cynics fame, vocals are just the coolest… well, they would be the coolest if it wasn’t for her cousin Savanna who stars in the video who is actually the coolest. Cairns’ vocals though, just make the lyrics and stuff feel really real, and believable, just that authenticity kind of puts you in her shoes.
How Heavy Was Hevy Fest 2015?
Last weekend I went to Hevy Fest in Kent and it was really cool and I've written a review type thing about it.
