Foals – One (Your Name) (Swedish House Mafia Cover)


British band Foals decided to take a stab at one of 2010′s signature summer bangers, Swedish House Mafia‘s “One.” Insert lead singer Yannis in place of  Pharrell and replace the synth with Foals’ instrumentation and minimalist pop sound and you have yourself a completely new song. Though the song is not an electro banger, the live instrumentation breathe a new life, giving it a slightly dark feel to it. With a bass line that sounds like something Jack White would conspire, and the aura of the Arctic Monkeys, this song could earn Foals some new fans, check it out.

Bangladesh Speaks About The Pusha T. Collabo


“I’ve been running into Pusha T. for a while now but we never got up. I don’t know what kept happening. I just kept hearing from people he was trying to get in with me. But he was really serious about making it happen this time. I like Pusha T. and I like a lot of artists, but I like it even more when they want to work with me. Then, you know what to expect. You don’t got to be going through 200 beats trying to find the perfect thing for somebody. And they ain’t trying to get you to do something that you really don’t do. It was good because he fucks with me and he’s open to what I got.

He wants to hear what I like. It’s good to work with people like that because the product comes out to be how you like it to be. There’s no happy mediums where you gotta sacrifice this for that and the music starts sounding funny. It wasn’t none of that. It sounds like it’s supposed to sound. “He was like, ‘Give me something hard.’ We went into the studio one day, I played him a few beats, and he picked [a beat]. He went home the next day. I’m thinking he’s gonna write to the joints. He came back to the studio like, ‘Man, I like these beats, but I want to hear some more.’ So I played him some more, but I was running out of things to play.

I was like, ‘I ain’t got much left to play but I can make you something right now.’ Then I remembered this beat I had been making in L.A. I put that beat on and he just went crazy. He was like, ‘This the beat I was talking about!’ The song I’m talking about, you wouldn’t expect him to be on it. With the G.O.O.D. Music thing and The Neptunes, you never heard Pusha on shit like that. And he was even saying, ‘They ain’t gonna expect that.’ It’s gonna kill the game.”

Robin Thicke Brings Soul To Hard Rock Hollywood Opening


‘I just wanna keep it Hard Rock Cafe, not soft rock café,’ crooner tells MTV News before his energetic, sweat-filled set. Rock returned to Hollywood with the grand opening Thursday night of the Hard Rock Hollywood Cafe. It marked a fitting return to a city rich in rock history, boasting hometown heroes like the Doors, the Runaways, Mötley Crüe and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Nestled between the iconic Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and the Kodak Theatre, the venue itself is fit for rock royalty, with a full stage in the middle of the café and music memorabilia adorning the walls. Some key pieces of memorabilia in the Hollywood collection include a Michael Jackson fedora that he wore in the ’90s, a suede jacket worn by John Lennon for the Beatles’ Rubber Soul album cover and a sheer nightgown worn by Gwen Stefani in her “Wind It Up” music video.

Cali, Cali, Cali Music Video To Air Today, Alyssa Bernal’s Philly Recap

According to Wong Fu Productions, Alyssa Bernal’s Cali, Cali, Cali” video will be premiering on Myspace this Friday the 22nd, and her youtube VEVO on the 25th and check out her latest Recap Tour video this time from Philadelphia.

“This is our first time working with Alyssa, AND it’s our first time making a music video for a female solo artist! Not only that, but it was one of the most stressful times this yr putting together the project. We had a little over a week to go from “Hey WF, wanna do this?” to “Rolling! Action!”(concept-preproduction). Normally, this is something WFP has done in the past, tight schedules, no prob… but this was different because we had never worked with a record label, on the scale that they expected. So there was A LOT of learning, frantic moments, and last minute decisions and miracles.

But… it all came together. Somehow, we were able to deliver in the end. I rarely ever boast, but I’m extremely proud of ourselves for pulling this together. The label was thankfully impressed with our work ethic and final product, and gave us much creative freedom which was really awesome of them. Alyssa of course was outstanding. She was so sweet yet professional, sticking through long shoots, giving it her all, performing naturally, all while looking beautiful and composed.”

Kanye West Talks CRS Album Again


Kanye screened his upcoming 35 minute film called “Runaway” in L.A. yesterday. Once again he talked to the audience and once again he brought up CRS, just that what he said this time was much more serious. The Associated Press reports that the producer-turned-rapper said that after “My Dark Twisted Fantasy” – recorded in Hawaii with the likes of Q-Tip, DJ Premier, RZA and Pete Rock - he will release an album of songs with Jay-Z and another with Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell Williams under the name Child Rebel Soldier.

N*E*R*D x Dallasobserver.com Interview


It may not seem like it, but N*E*R*D has been around for almost 10 years now, playing their genre-defying style of urban crossover rock. Featuring Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley, the band brings its experiences from the mega-successful Neptunes and puts it into a unique rock experience that falls somewhere between the score for a dance club and a mental hospital. It’s been a successful blend, too: In recent years, N*E*R*D has opened for the likes of Kanye West and Jay-Z alongside selling out tours by themselves. These days, they’re opening for Gorillaz as part of the Escape To Plastic Beach World Tour, promoting their fourth album, Nothing. The new album comes on the heels of the scrapped album Instant Gratification. It’s possible you may have heard the single “Soldier (feat. Santigold and Lil’ Wayne)” that came from that album, but the band ultimately scrapped the disc, wanting, instead, a more focused song that reflects the current times.

To get that more focused sound, they decided to shy away from the more experimental sounds of Instant Gratification and their third album, Seeing Sounds, instead opting to go for a more classic sound that gets its inspirations from older artists such as The Doors, Neil Young and even Queen. N*E*R*D’s members have gone on record claiming that this album is going to have not only a more timeless sound, but also one that’s more timely. In anticipation of the band’s tour stop at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie tonight, Dallasobserver caught up with Pharrell yesterday to chat about the new disc, the current tour and his constant collaborations.

Dallas Observer: Y’all had a single “Soldier” that y’all were promoting, but then it disappeared. What happened?
N*E*R*D: Because that was on the old album. It was a lost album that we did last year. We decided to go in a different direction.

DO: What was the inspiration behind the name Nothing?
N: Because we actually scrapped the last album and started with nothing, so we decided to call the album Nothing.

DO: A lot of people have talked about the album cover. It feature feathers and a helmet. We’ve heard that it’s a comment on how these are times of war and peace? What got you into that vibe?
N: Just looking at the news. This album is basically a time capsule of what’s going on, but it’s taking elements from another era to make it timeless. The album is like one big news report.
