!! OMG, so -erm- summery: Young Galaxy’s ‘New Summer’ !!


Soaring over a seascape of crimson flares, the viewer is taken ashore to witness some sort of explosion-centric inner city mushroom cloud mayhem, yet Young Galaxy’s song sounds upbeat with it’s synthesised steel-drum chorus and percussive reverberated verses.
Canadian outfit Young Galaxy’s album ‘Ultramarine’ is out NOW, get it before it explodes…I guess !?!

!! OMG, cruise-a-palooza-cousin-looser: Kalup Linzy’s One Life to Heal !!

Giving R Kelly’s ‘Trapped in the Closet’ a run for it’s inheritance money, Kalup Linzy’s ‘One Life to Heal’ is a hefty boat-load of family business choose your own mysterious delirious.
Taiwan Braswell and Kaye Braswell’s enetertainment hour song is all some sort of Mariah and Pavarotti double trouble, whilst Michael Stipe’s Christian Jones ‘POAM’ raises the pubic hairs on the back of your neck:

“You see me on the cruise
I won’t drink too much booze
You see me on the cruise
I won’t be on the news
You see me on the cruise
Let me be your muse
You fools be cool
Shooby-doo dooby-doo”

Well brown angels never spoke so holy a Cassio-keyboard-hornblast-backed verse as this!
Giving me all kinds of Goldie Hawn in ‘Overboard’ black family value realnesses, my mantra is now and forever will be “don’t ever forget the bullshit you commit”.
“…to be continued” ?! praise the lord above, aboard and overboard…PRAYmen!

!! OMG, blood bathing: Blatta & Inesha’s ‘We Don’t Know’ !!


Italian scallions Blatta & Inesha are serving some pool party techno beats, millennial electro flumpy whirs and a whole vat of summer punch, which is giving me pool party FOMO.
it’s OK though because I’m off to the ‘7/11’ to grab some dish soap, and I’m going to have a one person IPHONE STROBE FOAM PARTY in the bedroom closet, and anyway that knife-wielding chicken soup lady neighbour is making me reconsider whether this is the sort of party I’m looking to crash, and my one person party is going to be doing beer enemas in the next half an hour so whatever.

!! OMG, BUTT HEADS: Heather Dewey-Hagburg’s ‘Stranger Visions’ !!

Info artist Heather Dewey-Hagburg is a full on dirty scab; she’s been going around picking up cigarette butts…ewww!
But I completely take that back really because she’s then been analysing the genetic traces left behind to construct fully formed busts which she exhibits as a sort of show-and-shame hall of litter-bug shame which I think is totally passive aggressive artistry hilarity.
Jump in to see some of her garb-ARGE vis-ARGE creat-ARGE.

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]

!! OMG, treestruction and heartbreak: About Group’s ‘All is not Lost’ !!

Environmental artist Henrik HÃ¥kansson uses footage of condemned exploding trees and ‘butterflutters’-in-flight from his own project, ‘Symptoms Of The Universe Studies’ for About Group’s latest single ‘All is not Lost’ from their second album due out in July.
NOWNESS spoke to [plus Hot Chip] frontman Alexis Taylor about his top 5 heartbreak songs, and how he went about writing this particular track:

“[the song is] almost like a modern-day 12-bar blues or gospel equivalent, that you can hear in Monica’s “The Boy Is Mine,” “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” by Jennifer Lopez, “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay” by Whitney Houston and almost every R. Kelly ballad on the album R.”
