Music and other modern musings

Love them, hate her.


Well maybe I don’t hate her, but I do love Italian hip-rockers, Crookers.

Amanda Blank!

Philly’s female misogynist, Amanda Blank, is nothing short of amazing. Her solo tracks, which have been produced by the likes of Spank Rock and Pace Rock are urban but playful, her collabs with queens of all things cool, M.I.A. and Santogold redefine the role of women in the hipster-hop and her style, well look at her. I’ve not yet seen her live but hope to grab the chance when she hits either the MTL or TO stage with Santogold in early June. Blank’s debut album I Love Youdrops July 14th and is produced by the sensational Diplo, Switch and XXXChange!

Diplo learns circus acts.



Philly based Diplo, or Wesley Pentz, has layed out some pretty wild performances in the past couple of years but I must admit that his production skills have become somewhat stagnant over the last. However, this remix of Spears’ Circus is a clear example of the mastery he holds in remixery…No clowning around here.
