The Concretes: "Chosen One" Video
During a press event in San Francisco today, HP shows off two new WebOS-based smartphones. The Pre 3 updates the previous model with improved display quality and HD video recording, whereas the Veer is the company's smallest WebOS phone to date.
In this video we take a first look at the Nokia Asha 501. It has a 3-inch touchscreen and a colourful design but only uses 2G data. It's cheap though, to help it appeal to emerging markets.
"I Steal The Leaves," the first song by Priscilla Hernandez. The music video was produced and directed by the artist in the Fall of 2003 in the El Pijaral Forest (Tenerife). With a humble zero-cost production, the video is colourful and almost psychodelic with a magical feeling and celtic air. See the "fairy" in action.
Hot Swedish electro artists The Knife?s third studio album Silent Shout will be in stores on July 25th. Based in Stockholm, Sweden The Knife create subversive, shape-shifting soundscapes that defy categorization. Moving between realms, from highly danceable to tightly intimate spaces, theirs is music left of center and on the avant tip. Silent Shout, The Knife's third album, debuted at #1 on the Swedish charts. Mute will release Silent Shout, The Knife's first domestic release on July 25, 2006. "Silent Shout," the first single and title track, will be released on 12" and CD June 27, 2006 and features remixes from Shinedoe, Troy Pierce and more. Brother and sister, Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson, began making music together as The Knife in 1999, releasing records under their label Rabid Records. Deftly utilizing technology to strip, break down, defile, rebuild, and renew, their self-titled debut album The Knife, released in 2001, was followed by a soundtrack for the independent film Hannah med H, and their second artist album, Deep Cuts, both in 2003. The Knife is also famously responsible for penning ?Heartbeats?, a soul-tugging track made popular by Mute label-mate (and fellow Swede) Jose Gonzalez.
A psychedelic cartoon cat stars in the video for this gently rocking Concretes number.
Whether from the recent "Six Feet Under" soundtrack or from her unmistakable vocal work with chill-out champions Zero 7, Sia's star is on the rise. Her song "Breathe Me" has become an instant sensation, setting the stage for her full-length album "Colour The Small One." A mesmerizing collection of heartfelt, deeply personal songs, the album captures Sia's many sides - at once soulful, somber and playful.
This is an animation video for RachelAPP's song "my pain". Using simple animation movements and characters, the video highlights the song's central theme, loss, in an almost childish way. The song's central theme revolves around the loss of someone close, and the pain it brings. The music is upbeat, as if the person left alone is trying to cheer herself/himself up. The video translates this by using simple animation, bubble-gum colours and characters and yet, it depicts a situation of loss.

The Sonim XP1300 Core is more than durable, It will keep on working after you can put it in concrete and dip it antifreeze.
It may be hip-hop, C-Mon & Kypski are, more than anything, all about adventure, freedom and fantasy. A recent journey to Morocco is a good example. After two years of intensive touring (from Amsterdam to Istanbul, South by Southwest to Eurosonic), the guys of C-Mon & Kypski (Simon Akkermans, Thomas Elbers, Daniel Rose en Jori Collignon) decided to give their fantasy a helping hand. With unshaven beards they left with a camper van full of ideas and recording equipment to Morocco. Over a period of four weeks they created what is now their third and latest album 'Where the wild things are'. The album title, 'Where the wild things are', which is refers to the famous children book from 1963, written by Maurice Sendak. The most concrete product of their journey is the new single' Bumpy Road', which recieved it's name from the circumstances of the recordings. It is by far the happiest C-Mon & Kypski song till now, and irresistibly invites it's listener to explore the wide world yourself. No wonder the music of C&K does not have any musical borders. At first the group made it easy for themselves to be put under the genre of hiphop/turntablism, but not any more. C-Mon: "it really is a C-Mon & Kypski album, but some influences have decreased, some added. Especially rock plays a big part whereas we didn't use guitars before. Most important, we don't cut and paste anymore, we used less samples for this album and played a lot more instruments ourselves. We've grown in creating a sound." And so C-Mon & Kypski unite a whole lot of genres into their own sound, from afrobeat to electro, a psychedelic dreamtrack that is coverted to a pumping rocksong. Where do you find klezmer and tango seamless united into one song? Of course, C-Mon & Kypski.Until now C-Mon & Kypski did every dirty job on the album themselves, but on their new album they thankfully make use of the services of rappers Sadat X (Brand Nubian, USA) Pete Philly and Kain (The Last Poets, USA) saxophone player Benjamin Herman (New Cool Collective) The Amsterdam Klezmer Band and the rockers of Voicst also collaborated on the album.
