Quadron Video: “Buster Keaton”

Danish duo Quadron brings us the second video from their self-titled release on Plug Research. The soul/electronic act provides an entrancing visual take on the proverbial hoops women jump through in the many transitions from “teenagehood” to adulthood. Perhaps the emotional “Buster Keaton” video questions why women seem to float through life wearing the classically stoic Buster-Keaton-silent-movie face – either that or it’s a hoola-hoop commercial. Let us know what you think!

The World According to Jonesy – Radio Show #19

This edition starts off with a tribute to the late Lena Horne, who was known for her civil rights activism as much as for her music.

International music sensation Rocky Dawuni describes his new album, recorded during the recent transformative U.S. Presidential election and released today, as an uplifting exploration of social and global consciousness. The music was crafted to reflect the common spiritual, political and social aspirations felt by people around the world. Hymns for the Rebel Soul features melodic acoustic tracks like “Jerusalem,” a personal ode to the Holy City as well as the poignant social commentary of “Walls Tumblin Down” and the “Lover’s Rock” vibe of “Extraordinary Woman.” His track “Download the Revolution” appears on Electronic Arts’ video game FIFA Soccer 2010 which has already sold millions of copies and is now available on iTunes. “African Soccer Fever/African Reggae Fever” was also just released on EA’s FIFA World Cup 2010 Videogame.

A percentage of Hymns for the Rebel Soul‘s proceeds will go to Africa Live!, a non-profit organization founded by Dawuni, whose mission is to preserve, restore, and reinvigorate the Ghanaian live music scene.
