Sean Price — Boom Bye Yeah Video


This has been out for awhile but D.L. Chanlder dug me out of
hip-hop ignorance the other day and everyone else I know
seems to have already become hip to Sean Price’s style.
Boom Bye Yeah is about 1/3 electro production with a slinking
synth setting the whole thing alfame before Sean spews
sentences so memorable you don’t need his name as the Chorus
to remember this one.

Nuevo, Kronos Quartet

Matt sent me this one last night.

Truly amazing takes on traditional Latin American
melodies including El Llorar. Kronos brings them to
life by giving each piece an urgency similar to Michael Nyman’s work
only with a Latin flair. Perhaps the most enjoyable album
I’ve heard so far this year.

Richie Spice and The 5th Element Roster



With so many 7000 dollar shirts going around it’s amazing how few 7000
dollar websites adorn the musics of the FUBU conscious, but you can
excuse Richie Spice and the 5th element crew hailing from Kingston
because they ain’t at the P-diddy level yet. Profiled here by Xlr8r’s
Thomas Palmero The 5th Element crew is using the
electro-klunk of 90s raging thug infused dancehall for the traditional
pilgrimage back to the roots movement that marks any music that sells
more than 5 copies worldwide. Richie’s Galang Yah Gal might be
the perfect compliment to Dizze’s grime anthem Stand Up Tall,
but most of Richie’s output emphases the soul-full joints that mark
Wackie’s 12″s and studio one plates. He’s a crooner more than a MC.
Similar, if not higher compliments, can be thrown at Chuck Fenda who’s
riddims and approach remind of Sizzla’s more roots-ee numbers. Even
Anthony Cruz, who’s press photo is priceless, sounds good. So much good
music in a site that’s use of flash is so primitivist it might one day
hang in a museum next to
Bill
Traylor

Los Latigos

Kinda like a blend of John’s Children, The Velvets, and Twink in one
package.
Another charmingly eccentric child of the southern continents, Los
Latigos
hail from Argentinean and definitely nail that British shoe-box quality
of
pop post-mod but pre-beatles with a touch of the softish guitar that
made
say early Flaming Lips so enjoyable.

Luces Sensacional

No Te Expreses

I might add a lot of Argentenian’s
Secsy
Disco’s
label is quite
good.
Pornois is good new wave.

Yula Yayoi

Yula Yayio is an enigma, no one seems
to get her records out of Japan except brief, but inspired
segments on compilations. Her website now lists
a few mp3s for download. Some of vapid j-pop and
others worldy inspired vocal arrangements that remind
of Middle Eastern vocal arrangements and African Choral
groups. Call and response with her self, Anne Briggs like
solo pieces all add up to an amazingly eclectic body
of music all pointing towards one rather cute mouth.
Comparable to Julie Tippets or Maggie Nicols.
