This is the first offering from Kelleher Records, the kind of song you want to play over and over (preferably with headphones). Ronan Kelleher is an extremely talented musician who plays multiple instruments as well as composing. You would never guess that this polished, sophisticated song is by a 14 year old. Pre-order this song to get it as soon as it comes out in a couple of weeks (itunes, amazon, etc.)
Here’s a song about people who get on a bus with the promise that they are going to a party with food and other good stuff. They don’t notice that the bus is driving backwards, away from where they think they are going. The bus driver, is so not-taking-care-of business that while the bus drives he shaves and eats spaghetti.
Machel Montano and Angela Hunte both have songs to Ti’ Punch Riddim and the same background track (as far as I can tell). I like both songs and want to hear what they would sound like together at the same time. Today I put the two songs together in Audacity to see. I didn’t do anything to them except synch the start, so the background is too loud, Angela Hunte’s vocals are not load enough, etc. I don’t know anything about mixing and am using the final songs. That said, the songs do work together and would sound good if mixed right.
This is the new video for the song Tous Les Mêmes. It is a complicated, conceptual video with dance, lights, and post production effects. Part of the complexity is that Stromae plays both members of a couple at once, by switching which profile is showing. It must be hard to choreograph always walking one direction when it’s the man and the other direction when it’s the woman. There are also red and green lights which show who’s turn it is. Stromae did a good job of switching between roles in the first video when it was a solo. The old video is lighter, but the song is pretty dark.
Papaoutai is another excellent Stromae video.
