    American music culture 101, from Country to Rock to Pop to Hip-hop, in 3 easy steps:

    1. when black americans invent it, initially detest it, mock it, claim it is destroying american youth and proper sensibilities

    2. realize it isn’t going anywhere, co-opt it, engage in it and profit from it

    3. obscure its origins and repackage it in such a way that the next generation understands it as a product of white american excellence


  2. I decided to take a Disney classic and put a darker spin on it. Kiss The Girl is usually in C major so I switched it to C minor and added my own flavor. Enjoy!

  3. Soundhog, did a mashup of The Beatles’ Helter Skelter vs. Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love. Holy Shit! Like really, holy shit! Please! You MUST hear this!

    The New Orleans Swamp Donkeys - Game of Thrones Theme Song (Cover)

    Look, I find Game of Thrones to be pretty much perfect as it is. I’m not one to mess with greatness but I’m glad The New Orleans Swamp Donkeys dared.

    Calling this a jazz cover of the title sequence song of Game of Thrones is an understatement. The use of brass is clever—a kind of contained chaos , the tonal variations are skillful. The upbeat transformation of the song still encompasses the visceral reaction the show evokes. Just a different one.

    And those solos? Stunning.

    I’m just into it.

    Brooking Bound, the album opener, is the first taste of the low-key, cozy and…
