There are rock bands and then there’s Rock Band. Not the video game series but instead an installation created by artist Neil Mendoza.
It takes the idea of rock music to its logical conclusion because it uses actual rocks, which are thrown through the air, to make music in this instance a cover of The Beatles ‘Here Comes the Sun.’
Irish music duo Rubberbandits, who have a song featured on the new T2 soundtrack, have released a new music video for their track ‘Donald in the Distance.’
Like everything these days it relates to a certain US president, and has Blindboy Boatclub, one half of the duo, interviewing a horrifying version of Donald Trump that’s straight from your nightmares.
Squidward Tentacles is the cranky octopus from SpongeBob SquarePants, not the type of character you expect to see rapping some contemporary hip hop.
Which makes this mashup from New York-based video editor Adam Schleichkorn, aka Mylo the Cat, which sees Squidward rapping Big Sean’s 2016 hip hop hit ‘Bounce Back’ all the more amusing.
If you don’t know about Takeo Ishii, the legendary 69-year-old Japanese yodeler, then now is time to get acquainted with his incredible skills.
In this video from the The Gregory Brothers he sings about a chicken attack while a chicken ninja fights other, normal ninjas—don’t worry, no one really has any idea what’s going on either.
In his latest mashup of kids cartoons with rap music New York-based video editor Adam Schleichkorn, aka ‘Mylo the Cat,’ gives us Daffy Duck as Coolio.
Which means we also get Porky Pig as L.V. as classic Looney Toons cartoons are cleverly edited to perform Coolio’s 1995 hip hop hit ‘Gangster’s Paradise.’
It’s not often that rappers make songs about their cats, even less frequent that they actually rap to their cats.
But Dan Bull isn’t your ordinary rapper and in this song from his new album ‘Hip Hop Hooray’ he delivers some lyrics about his beloved feline.
Jim Jarmusch’s new film Gimmer Danger chronicles the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands of all time and history.
It chronicles how Iggy Pop and the Stooges have, for nearly fifty years, been defining music with their brand of raucous rock—and Iggy isn’t looking like he’s going to stop just yet.
You’ve heard the sound of it many, many times and you’ve no doubt made some shapes on the dancefloor to them—it’s one of the greatest synths ever, it’s the Roland TR-808 drum sequencer.
As an instrument, it has been responsible for shaping the sound of everything from hip-hop, to dance, to pop— and a new documentary chronicles its incredible legacy talking with artists and producers to find out what makes it so special.
