It's finally here! The legendary Synergy Live has returned to Cape Town and Johannesburg this weekend, and i hope you're ready! I was ridiculously bummed that i couldn't make last year's festival (i had
The story goes something along the lines of: James Franco and Seth Rogen were quite bored on set of their new movie “The Interview”… and so being Franco and Rogen, decided to do a little ode to Kanye West’s new “Bound 2″ music video.
This is still less cringey than the original (if you can believe it)… but still way more laugh inducing. I have no doubt that if Kanye steps down off of his cloud for 5min, and sees this, he’ll throw a massive tantrum on Twitter or something.
If you are a big fan of “Pitch Perfect” and the song ‘Royals’ by Lorde, then you will love this cover. So here are the Florida State University “AcaBelles”.
This man is absolutely glorious. There is no other way to describe it, i just hope that one day i might experience this euphoria…
Their music teacher, Aaron O’Keefe, decided he’d do things a little differently with his music students and get them to to do covers of epic tunes. This video below is undisputed proof that music will, in fact, get to a point in the next 10yrs where some never thought it would. Too many people go on about all the terrible music these days… we don’t have more terrible music, we just have more music. Period.
Children are getting access to instruments (and a wide variety of them, long gone are the days of everyone having to do recorder) a lot earlier, and a lot easier. I also feel like there is just so much more inspiration that is readily available. Music is everywhere and so damn accessible. I’m excited to see what the next generation can produce with all the awesome shit at their fingertips.
The drummer is a tiny little demon on those drums. The bass player was killing it, in fact, all of the guitarists were nonchalantly murdering their parts. The tiny firecracker of a lead singer is just POWER… that emotion in her voice can’t be taught. BUT we all know who real hero is: the six year old rocking the rhythm sticks. You play those rhythm sticks, lil buddy!
Fender is essentially the brand that started it all! They offered the first mass-produced solid-body Spanish-style electric guitar, the first mass-produced electric bass, and the Stratocaster (Strat)
We're less than a month away from Vodacom In The City 2013! The line up in INSANE, and pretty much kicks off an AWESOME season for music fans in South Africa. We've got so many truly amazing live acts
I'm sure by now you've heard the good news! Bastille are heading to S.A early January 2014. These guys released one of the best albums of 2013 by far (Bad Blood), if you haven't got a copy, get one!
The brand new music video for Mumford & Sons "Hopeless Wanderer" has been released.... and let's just say that's it's a little different to what you would expect from these banjo playing Brits.
This cover turns me on more than i can describe. I honestly believe that Ellie Goulding is my Spirit Animal! Here, she does a sort of sensual vaguely jazz parlour-esque cover of Alt-J’s Tesselate.
Alt-J are coming to South Africa this year, more specifically (and importantly) to ROCKING THE FREAKING DAISIES! I could not have chosen a better place to see them live! *SQUEEEEEEEEE*
