Shilpa Ray & Her Happy Hookers are performing at Pianos this Friday

We won't be able to see the amazing Shilpa Ray & Her Happy Hookers because we are getting married and planning it takes more time than you can imagine. In the meantime, go see her. She will rock. She always does. The lineup also includes Headless Horseman, Android Lust, Sunny Ali & The Kid, and Po Po.

Radiohead - "Lotus Flower" Video

Gonna help this Radiohead trend go up and up. My first listen to The King of Limbs was one of disappointment. Not much melody. But as I get into listen three, there is a lot of texture and it sounds like a sadder Eraser. And although it is not the best Radiohead album it may be the worst. Not sure yet. But even to be the worst it is still pretty good, right? The video below for "Lotus Flower" is for one of the best tracks in my opinion. Check out Mr. Yorke doing some wild dancing.

Been chillin' with this new Money Making Jam Boys mixtape. It's Black Thought from the Roots, Dice Raw, Truck North, STS, and P.O.R.N. and it's pretty rad. Get it now. Pretty sure this is leading up to a new Black Thought solo album.

Anika - "Yang Yang" Video

I know this video isn't quite new but I have been listening to this album by Anika almost non-stop. It's on Stones Throw and it's produced by Geoff Barrow (Portishead). It sounds like punktronica. Does that make sense? See below.
