Willow Smith – “Sugar and Spice”

 

Listen to Willow Smith’s beautiful and gloomy new song “Sugar and Spice.” The song samples Radiohead’s dreary track “Codex” from the album The King of Limbs. 

With lyrics like  “I tried to be sugar and spice, but I’m melancholy and can’t do anything right / The monsters under my bed keep making noise at night, I just want silence”  the track evokes whats currently going-on in the US (world ) right now; Sandy Hook, Suicide, Bullying, etc. There is tremendous maturity bursting through this track, it’s hard to believe that Smith still only 12 years old.

Smith’s debut, Knees and Elbows is schedule to drop sometime this year.

What do you guys think of this track?!

WAZU – ROBOBO [Album Review]

Embrace your darker side, at least for one bone-chilling night. Nodding back ever so graciously to the synth sounds of neo-80s, this orchestra of goth, horror-punk, dance & electro is sure to entice.  Wazu’s full album Robobo released this past Halloween gives us a deeper darker insight into their feelings of disdain & haunting gloom. Surprisingly their deep dark voyage gives way to a hopeful outcome.

This eccentric pair comprised of Matt & Rizz, natives of Sydney Australia and now based in New York City have formed a sound that can be comparable to that of Depeche Mode and even newer bands such as Ariel Pinks Haunted Graffiti & Crystal Castles. Even though slightly reminiscent to others in certain ways, Wazu has definitely managed to cleverly carve out an original sound that is enjoyably fresh in this rapidly growing field of “me too’s”.

Ingenious lyrics accompanied by energetic dark grooves and ghostly vocals work together so seamlessly in danceable tracks like “It’s a Trick” & “Councilor”. As we progress, the melancholy feeling of “Ghost Years” is haunting on so many levels. And alas, a beautiful ending to an already compelling piece of art is “Irene” with wonderful guitars and deep vocals that end in an array of atmospheric fog. Robobo is a brilliant journey full of emotional high & lows that I was more than happy to experience. by Wil Rodriguez.

Tiga – “Plush” [New Video]

 

So what do we think of Tiga’s brand new still-video for the Gary Numan-esque track, “Plush”?? I think it’s creative… but a bit lazy, don’t you think?

The track in the other hand is insanely good! Old-school techno beats drenched in 80′s funk and glam…what’s not to like?!!  This is the Jam!!

What do you think of the video? Does it work for the song or no?

“Plush” is taken from the mix LP Tiga Non Stop out now.
