WATCH: Das Racist “Ek Shaneesh”

If you’ve been searching endlessly for the perfect mix between M.I.A. and Asher Roth… then I have a surprise for you! Enter: Brooklyn’s ecclectic trio, Das Racist.

Check out their video for “Ek Shaneesh” and commiserate with me that we’re unable to see them at this year’s SXSW in Austin, Texas. And for those of you lucky enough to see them… I want to be you.

 

Watch: Odd Futures on Jimmy Fallon

Holy crap…Odd Futures performance on Jimmy Fallon was..well…odd. And yet amazing! Jumping around the stage like crazy people, jumping on Jimmy Fallon’s back at the end and to top it off Mos Def showing up? Watch below.

Rocking the Ukulele: Jake Shimabukuro Plays “Bohemian Rhapsody”

I have never thought to myself “hey! I need to go purchase a Ukulele based album.” At least not until watching this video of Ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro covering Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. I’ve never been one for strictly instrumental songs but if they sounded like this I would be snatching up every album out there. Jake, who has been playing Ukulele since he was 4, has toured with Jimmy Buffett and was featured on Yo-Yo Ma’s holiday album. Check out the video below and if you like what you see go to Jake’s website.

WATCH: Vampire Weekend vs. The Black Keys in a “Sell-Out Off”

Well played Colbert…well played. The Black Keys and Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra stopped by the Colbert Report to help Stephen decide on “Best Alternative Album” for the Grammys. The game is the “Sell-Out Off” and shall be determined by who whores out their music the most. It’s actually funny to see all the commercials both bands’ songs have been in…they gotta make their money somewhere people! I would try and stay neutral on the two bands but everyone knows I absolutely love Vampire Weekend. So much that while drunk at the bar the past weekend some dude asked me what the best album of 2010 was and I answered Contra. I don’t necessarily agree with my drunken self on that but it was good. Anyway, if you want to check out the funny clip  go to Colbert Report on Comedy Central!

WATCH: Vampire Weekend on Jools Holland

Oh how I love Vampire Weekend. I saw them back in September at the Hollywood Bowl and I have deemed it the 2nd best concert I’ve ever been to, they are amazing live. They recently performed on the Jools Holland NYE bash and per usual are great. Watch the video below!
