If you haven’t seen or heard this song yet, you HAVE to check it out. Be warned, though, it is addictive. Luke Million’s clip for the catchy dance track Arnold shows us a young Arnold Schwarzenegger’s lead up to the 1977 Mr Olympia competition in Los Angeles. Funny. Yet serious. One more time.
Jonny Telafone is one of my favourites at the moment. There are other songs I like more, but I figured I’d post this as its one of his more arresting numbers. A brilliant mind.
Rarely has pop art met music which such stunning affect. Produced by Japanese pop art king, Takashi Murakami, actress Kirsten Dunst was directed by Hollywood big-wig McG in a video for the song Turning Japanese by The Vapors. It’s a joyful four-minute riot of cartoon-esque colour.
The reaction to Claps And Autotune For Lovers has been amazing. To be honest, it was a record I kind of just stumbled upon. I literally woke up one morning after a show and decided to screw around with some clapping patterns. I called my engineer and just recorded the mess that was being painted in my brain.
The great thing about some classical music is that it can be dressed up in beats, pieces, and all manner of outrageously kitsch outfits and still sound awful, as this effort from Adya and Geisha attests.
Ok, Reggie Watts’ song Fuck Shit Stack is a full-on and hilarious lampoon of hip-hop, but it’s also a great hip-hop song with some subtle references to very specific hip-hop icons of yore.
