007

I’ve always liked this little gem from Desmond Dekker & The Aces, and Trojan Records just posted a video for this 1966 song, “007”:

If that doesn’t ring a bell, you might recognize them from their more popular classic, “Israelites.”

Watch Sufjan Stevens Perform Carrie & Lowell Live

You can now watch a full performance of Sufjan Stevens’ Carrie & Lowell in all its glory live.

According to his label, Asthmatic Kitty Records, Sufjan Stevens explores the feelings following the sudden death of his mother in the album Carrie & Lowell.  Much of the videos we see in the background of the performance are family videos, many of Carrie, taken by Sufjan’s grandfather, Nick Marabeas.

Sufjan had this to say about the performance:

I found that performing these songs live allowed me to work through my suffering by giving it away. In sharing this music with the audience, I could surrender it to them as a gift, that they might be able to go home and contemplate death with an open heart. It was important for me to create an experience of sadness and exuberance, and to remind people to live everyday as if it were their last.

In addition to getting to experience the full album live in this video, you can also watch him do a cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” which is rumored to be available in September!

Max your screen and enjoy the goodness.

Shabazz Palaces return with a new follow-up to their 2014 album Lese Majesty with the song “Shine a Light”  from the album Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star, which is set to be released this July 14th.

The album tells the story of Quazarz, a sentient being who visits Earth to find himself in the “ethers of the Migosphere here on Drake world.”  Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star is set to feature, “in body or spirit,” Julian Casablanacas, Thundercat, and more.

In “Shine a Light” Shabazz Palaces samples Dee Dee Sharp’s “I Really Love You,” forging a song that is both otherworldy and nostalgic, with a touch of romance.
