The Cranberry Show released their eagerly awaited “Cinema” video today. I just got the chance to check it out now, because I was busy working on a video of my own. It’s really awesome to see when people take time with their videos, creating a great end product. This is just another example of the great end product that comes from avoiding a cookie cutter video formula. Check this out:
The Cranberry Show recently got back from a trip to New York City, where they signed a management deal with a division of Violator Management. On the way through the city, they stopped at ThisIs50.com’s headquarters and shot this interview. Check out the ridiculous freestyles in this thing. Oh, and if you want to see them live, they’re at The Rave with Asher Roth tonight. Actually, in a few hours from now. I’ll see you there.
So… I really don’t need to post this. The Cranberry Show doesn’t need my help spreading this track around. This album was released today on DonutsAndMilk.com and DJBooth.net, which are both substantially bigger blogs than mine. But I just want you to hear this album. If you don’t download or listen to anything else that I write about, at least give The Cranberry Show a shot. And I’m not just saying that cause I produce for them once in a while. This is a solid album front to back. Click on the major hip-hop blog logo of your choosing to download the album. They’ll also be at The Rave tomorrow night, co-headlining an album release show with Mike Stud. I’ll be in the building. You should be too.
The Euroclub has been working on some big things lately. This kinda flew under my radar, but once I got a chance to listen to it, I was really amazed at how the different sounds on this mixtape all came together. There’s a lot of big name Milwaukee talent on here throughout the whole tape, and it all flows. Click here or on the album cover to download this tape from the Euroclub.
Also, here’s the song that’s been stuck in my head from this tape. Deletah’s “This Sound Dope”
If you haven’t heard of Jon Frost, be prepared to be thoroughly impressed. I feel like this EP is a how-to for aspiring pop singers, almost. “Can You Hear The Colors” is a 6 song free EP sample of his album of the same name, due out at a later date. It’s everything a fun, catchy pop record should be. Many of the synth-heavy tracks on this EP sound to me like they could easily be sung by some of pop music’s biggest stars. Needless to say, many of these tracks are radio-ready, and the hooks are so catchy you’ll be singing them by the second verse. Frost also has some very credible production work under his belt, doing not only his own music, but working with The Cranberry Show on their album, as well as Rhymefest. Click the album cover to download the EP.
Still not convinced that it’ll be good? Check out his first single, entitled “The Make Up Song”:
While we’re at it, here’s my favorite Jon Frost song, “I’ll Wait For You”. It’s not featured on the EP, but it’s so catchy. This is how you write a love song.
This might be my favorite TCS video so far. Shot by Haz Solo, take a look at “Last Score”, produced by Dylan Thomas. This is off of their upcoming mixtape “The Ballad of Pretty Tony and the Switchblade Kids”, due out this October 1st.
So, it’s been a couple weeks, but I finally put together the video that I shot from the Mifflin Street Block Party this year. The video was really just to test out my new editing software, but I uploaded it to Youtube. Why not, right? Especially since there is a movement to shut the annual party down before next year’s event, due to some unfortunate violence by a select few of the thousands that attended this year. With that said, I urge everyone to go support the Save Mifflin cause on Facebook. Take a look at the party you’ll be saving. The video contains music from ¡Oye! and Klassik, The Cranberry Show, F. Stokes, and SAFS Crew representatives Dukalion, RTystic, and Seismic.
I like The Cranberry Show. I like Sleigh Bells, Why wouldn’t I put up a link to this? This is the latest Sunday Steeze track from TCS, over the Sleigh Bells song with the same name. Big beats like this really fit them well. And the picture that comes with it is sick, too. Click the picture or right here to download.
This is the first installment of TCS’ Sunday Steeze series, in which they are giving out a new song every Sunday in April. I got this track in advance this week, and so far it’s gotten almost 20 plays from me alone. That sounds kind of self-obsessed, but TCS brings it every time.
