January 4, 2010

So loads of media types had The XX as their top album of last year and I thought they were just hyping these guys up as the next best thing but then I actually listened to the album, its really good…I mean really good! Check it out.

I’m not too hot on the dubstep scene…I’m getting too old to follow what dem’ youth are listening to. Anyway I was intrigued by the collaboration between Four Tet and Burial. This is only out on 12″ vinyl in very limited quantities, its very trance-like but I like them both ( they are the ‘A’and ‘B’ side tracks) :

Shakira Vs Beyonce

Man this is awful…which one is Shakira and which is Beyonce? Towards the end of the video they seem to be having a competition as to which one is the better booty shaker. Strike one for the feminist movement ;). I bet the whole thing is one big conspiracy aiming to hypnotise men with their booty shaking and the use of a high frequency voice being played over the track, that only men can hear, saying “You must respect women…You must respect women”…what else would be the point of this video?
