Tori Kelly – Suit and Tie (Cover)

Can’t believe it took me so long to stumbled on Tori Kelly’s cover of JT’s Suit and Tie.  If I forgot how amazing she was on the One Man Woman duet cover with Jeremy Passion, my memory and fingers are quick with the rewind and repeat due to this new cover. Unfortunately her handful of tour dates have not reached me yet but I got my fingers crossed that she will be performing here in the near future. Tori Kelly, I look forward to seeing you live!

solange+black cab sessions

2013 should just be renamed the year of solange. this acoustic set of ‘bad girls’ off the true album keeps me wishing her tour dates would expand and include a few in the northwest. until then, i’ll probably have to make do with these youtube and vimeo clips.

Ariane Moffatt – Je Veux Tout

Recently coming across ‘Je Veux Tout’ (translates as ‘I Want It All’) by Francophone artist Ariane Moffatt makes me wonder if we should all start taking note of the Junos. Nominated in 2009, Ariane has since released a total of 4 albums (one of which is bi-lingual). Pop over to the MySpace page to hear more of her mix of folk-pop and electro.

Animals Eating Animals

 

What do you get when you have one chef and one bartender scouting out delicious but slightly out of the ordinary dishes in NYC? Six episodes of must try food places and dishes for your upcoming trip (or if you’re a local, six new spots to try out) courtesy of Beagle’s chef de cusine Jeffrey Ryan Creager and Dutch Kills head bartender Jan War. Everything from foie gras donuts to lamb testicles, brains and heart, picky eaters do not enter.

Solange….

Try to hate but you can't deny that Solange has continually brought some impressive tracks for the ears. The throwback nostalgic lighting, 70s fashion, catchy chorus evokes the sentiment we all feel with the arrival of fall: summer's gone and another year will soon pass. But the rush of time might slow down a bit with this song on repeat...so we might as well re-play these particular moments in time again and again.

Impossibly Awesome Photo-ness

Looks like analog is getting another boost thanks to the Impossible Instant Lab team. As much as we all love snapping away on our iPhones*, these special/not so special moments in time never quite make it to the printer or photo lab. Call it procrastination or whatever excuse you want to throw up, the Impossible Instant Lab team makes digital photos as easy to develop as taking a Polaroid photo…which it kinda is.

Check out their kickstarter account for the full video demo and become one of their donors. You know want to.

Rebranding Game of Thrones

Take a Nike designer and a love of Game of Thrones and you got yourself one of the coolest posters around. Unfortunately with a limited edition run of 250, these are now long gone. But like Game of Thrones with its unexpected twist, designer Darrin Crescenzi might reconsiders and lets fans fight over a few more.

Aaliyah…Enough Said

Maybe someone should send Drake a thank you note for dropping this track as a teaser of more things to come. Produced by Noah “40″ Shebib, Aaliyah’s voice definitely lit up more than a few smiles today. This one will have to tide us over until the next one.
