Video: Ka - Off the Record

I'm sure this video resonates with those that received their introduction to quintessential nineties rap through vinyl records and tape decks. My first rap album was Puff Daddy's No Way Out, on CD (fml), and it's a shame to Read more

Hey Sholay – Go Easy Tiger + A Strange Dream For A Boat

Hey Sholay

Despite their uninviting band name, I think Hey Sholay is sitting on the edge of inde pop stardom. They just dropped an album in September tittled ((O)), and have an EP on the way already. I don’t quite understand the deeper meaning of ((O)), but if you just give these two tracks a listen, you’ll see that their music is a lot better than their ability to name shit.

Kasket Club – “Moody Melody”

They are probably exclusive, but I don’t think I’d ever want to be a member of Kasket Club. Not because it’s a casket club and to me that means Gary Jules groupies, or the Six Feet Under, fans for Michael C. Hall click – it’s because I don’t altogether trust people who spell things wrong on purpose. In the same way I’ll never take my future children to the Kids Dental Kare office, I will never ink pens with the Kasket Club. Not that it really matters. Like I said, they’re probably… Xlusive. Ohhhhhhhhh!

For real though Kasket Club is Thomas Vesseltun and Tobias Gautier Teigen from Norway. They are new on the scene (just created a KC Facebook Page 2 weeks ago!), and describe their music as indie pop/chillwave. I guess I’ll call  it that too. In future conversations. No need to repeat it now. Here’s “Moody Melody.”
