Championship Vinyl: Week of 5/15/11 - 5/21/11

Ever since I got this new job I've been buying a ton of cd's via Amazon or Zia Records (or from artist's sites). I get paid every week and after I get my check I head to Zia and throughout the week I just order them off Amazon. I thought I'd start sharing my purchases with this segment. As most of you know, the title is a reference to the High Fidelity film. I thought it was appropriate because I want this segment to embody the same pretentiousness that the record store embodied in High Fidelity. I'll try to post 1 music video from each album I post along with a link to Amazon (or the artists' site) to purchase the album.

Sly Fox Strikes Again... (Video x Article)














Well, well, well, if "Sly Fox" isn't at it again. Fox News is no stranger to bashing hip hop and this time, they're latest target is beloved Chicago emcee, Common. Because when you think of Common you think, "Oh yeah, that's a controversial rapper." All of the fuss is being caused by Michelle Obama's decision to invite Common to perform during Poetry Night at the White House in front of students. Fox News even went so far as to call Common "vile". The source material that has been used against Common is his poem "A Letter To The Law" performed on Def Poetry in 2004. HipHopDX published an article on the matter which you can read at HERE.

Kid CuDi - Falling Star (R3K Remix)


Producer R3K brilliantly mashes up CuDi's part on Dan Black's "Symphonies" track with Florence + The Machine's "Cosmic Love". The mash up hardly sounds like a mash up and more like an original track. Well done R3K.

The Walkman Chronicles: Issue #1

This is the 1st edition of a segment dedicated to spotlighting great LP/EP's found on BandCamp. Physical copies of all releases included in this segment are available for purchase. Hence the title. I'm a fan of physical copies and if an album is only available for digital download, that's usually enough to prevent me from buying it. As you know, TOTR is all about indie music and is firm believer in supporting the artist so please, don't just try to mediafire these albums. Some of these artists are even shipping you their CD's directly from their apartments. That's about as indie as it gets. FYI: I have purchased all CD's in this featured in this segment.

Holy Ghost! - Wait & See (Video x Audio)

The New York electropop duo of Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel have released "Wait & See" as a free single from their debut, self-titled album (in stores now). The two men in the video are NOT Nick and Alex but instead, they got their dads to portray them.

In Alex's words: "for a long time Nick and I joked that our dads should take our press photos. At some point our go-to director, Ben Fries, came up with the idea of actually making a video with them playing us and “Wait and See” seemed like the perfect song to do it for. At first both Dads were a little apprehensive -- and rightfully so: My dad was appalled at the sizing options at American Apparel. But when we explained that the joke wasn’t on them -- that it was actually kind of making fun of us getting older and still living like teenagers -- they were game. For the record, they agree: We need to grow up."

"I decided to start off May by just putting some thoughts out for the fans. I’m working on a lot of things but sometimes it feels like I’m not doing anything. So to quench the thirst of the people, I will be releasing Fearless which is a first of 7 releases with streamless conscious flowing. Aka a freestyle that’s actually thought out and well written.

First one is my attempt at tackling Drake’s Fear. I called up a couple of my fans and let them hear the verse as well as even putting a conf call # out to cipher with them. I have a deep appreciation for my followers and I hope this accepted by them.

I now present Fearless!"
