Our regular round-up of what’s happening with BAMM.tv’s favorite artists right now …
Chilean hip-hop superstar Ana Tijoux has released new single ‘No Al TPP’, which is a savage political attack on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (more details here). Check out her BAMM.tv performances here.
Our weekly roundup of what’s happening with BAMM.tv’s favorite artists …
The fantastic Wild Child (seen below in one of the greatest BAMM.tv videos to date) have announced a release party for their new album ‘The Runaround’, taking place at Austin City Limits, TX on October 11. It may seem like a while away, but demand will be high – so grab those tickets now! And if you can’t make it to Austin … make sure to pick up a copy of their new album anyway!
Lookin’ for some live music a little closer to the here and now? You’re in luck – wonderful singer/songwriter Kelly McFarling has just begun her East Coast tour of the US. You can find out if she’s playing near you riiiiiight here.
THE KANDINSKY EFFECT
We love this jazz-fusion three piece from Paris, and it seems that other people are becoming quite fond of them too – such as New Music Mix, who included them on their new online jazz mix (along with a host of other exciting artists).
This Portland-based bunch of musical crusaders have previously been our Artist Of The Month, so that pretty much tells you all you need to know (if you’re a little slow on the uptake, we’re saying that they’re incredibly good). Their new album ‘White Lighter’ was released this week.
Colombia’s Monsieur Periné – along with fellow BAMM.tv favorites Hollerado – are quietly and confidently creating some of the best and most interesting music videos of the moment. Their promo for new single ‘La Ciudad’ is the usual visual feast (below).
Well, the week which saw the release of the amazing BAMM.tv app is over. No doubt you’re going to spend much of your weekend exploring the app, but – in the meantime – let’s enjoy our traditional Friday playlist. This week we’re delving into the musical tastes of BAMM.tv CEO Chris Hansen …
1. “The Divided Sky” – (Junta, 1988) – Phish
It’s impossible not to be inspired by this song. Trey’s guitar is six strings of victory throughout.
2. “Layla” – (Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, 1970) – Derek and the Dominoes
Another epic interweaving of guitar and piano and the perfect running tempo.
3. “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” – (‘Pendulum’, 1970) Creedence Clearwater Revival
One of the first songs I’ve ever truly loved, especially the bassline. This short but sweet melody carries us into the next phase of the mix.
4. “Nulla in Mundo Pax Sincera,” (from the soundtrack of Shine) – Antonio Vivaldi
At this stage in the run, I’m usually coming up on some kind of landmark–AT&T park, the Bay Bridge, Coit Tower, etc. One Saturday I happened to be running by the farmer’s market at the Ferry Building when this song came on and it was transcendental. I may have just been lightheaded, but I think it was the song.
5. “The Only Redeemer” (The Only Redeemer, 2002) – Noiseshaper
And now for something completely different. If you have any love for dub and deep house, this song will make you “move your feet to the promised land.”
