We’ve got a unique twist for our final Best Of 2013 round-up (before the New Year comes a-crashin’ in: BAMM.tv’s Nick Hansen has stepped into the time machine and selected the highlights from the end of 2003, which was remarkably a whole decade ago. We’ll let Nick explain further …

Farewell to 2013 with nostalgia for what 2003 sounded like in a 40 minute package of dirty little memories. I know not all the tracks were actually from 2003, but hey ya, go on, have a break, put your feet up and sing along, you know the words.

BAMM.tv Best Of 2013 – Fatima El Filali

Posted on: No Comments

We’ve been asking the BAMM.tv team what their musical highlights of 2013. Today it’s the turn of Fatima El Filali, whose wonderfully eclectic choices can be found below …

1. Mashrou’ Leila

The hipster band of Lebanon (as my friend calls them)!

Raasuk (below) literally means “they made you dance”. It is safe to say that this is a track from a very political album. I think the whole album plays around the idea of the rulers making the people dance, which makes it conceptual too. The video for the single is also playing with the same idea, the title literally means: for the nation.

Below is one of my faves from their previous album, and also a fave from their first album.

Posted on: No Comments

Incredibly, 2013 is almost over – and while the year might have sped by like a freight train, that hasn’t stopped the BAMM.tv team from amassing some favorite musical moments from the last twelve months. Oh – and we’re not sticking to that boring old ‘Albums Of The Year’ format that a billion zillion other outlets like to recycle. Instead, our team have chosen a category close to their hearts/talents/creative outlook.

To kick things off, BAMM.tv Media Director Jeff LaPenna has compiled his favorite Special Effects Music Videos of 2013. Here’s the list …


1. Beyoncé – “Grown Woman”

Her surprise new album was a late entry for ‘Musical Surprise Of 2013′ – but that’s not the list we’re dealing with here. ‘Grown Woman’ fuses nostalgia, retro video effects and psychedilic verve with typical Beyonce power:

TYPHOON

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.

BAMM.tv Featured Artist: Wallpaper.

Posted on: No Comments

Anyone familiar with reviewer shorthand will know the meaning of the term ‘wallpaper music’. It’s often used to describe the output of MOR giants like Coldplay or Maroon 5 – it’s background stuff, ambient dinner party noise, inoffensive and barely noticeable chatter which uses music more as a pleasant crutch than a blazing center of attention.

Sooooo … if you were a frenzied hip-hop electro-pop mastermind who drops beats like John McClane drops bad guys, you probably wouldn’t want to associate yourself with the word. You’d call yourself ‘Explosion Beast’ or ‘Annihilator’ or ‘Dance Yourself Sick’. That would be the predictable thing to do. The thing is: Ricky Reed – the producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist behind Wallpaper., our brand new Featured Artist – is anything but predictable.

Interested yet? Want to read on as we get all Home Depot on your ass and really start examining Wallpaper.? Or are you just a big old Doo-Doo Face?

(Note: Doo-Doo Face is the title of his first album. It’s just a joke. We’re not really calling you a Doo-Doo Face. Unless you’re a sadomasochist and are into that kind of thing. This is the internet, after all).

Anyway. Let’s continue (after the jump …)
