Arcade44 got the chance to chill out with J*Davey when they came from LA to play the Brooklyn Bowl. If you’re not familiar, the duo here (Miss Jack Davey and Brook D’Leau) will give you a glimpse of what to expect from their upcoming Warner Bros debut. Check out their Myspace here and one of our favorite videos after the jump.

New music from Cee-Lo! A great way to start the day even when it’s just a teaser video and and there’s a big Fuck You coming right at ya. Expressing hatred with a smiley face and gospel chorus: only a man like The Soul Machine could pull that off. The full-length, Cee-Lo Green is the Lady Killer is coming, not nearly soon enough.
Despite the bad weather which kept us off the rooftop, we were very grateful for Gilles Peterson‘s secret performance at NYC Soho House on Sunday; he played a killer set and naturally got the crowd moving. If you too want to be included in the hippest swanky events, always featuring quality music, follow our tweets for exclusive event entrances, plus crafty art and vinyl contests.
This week on GPWW, Gilles Peterson features the words and sounds of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Their interview reveals a lot about the group: from their introduction to brass instruments and what they’ve been through to what’s next for them as a band. The first part of the show is mostly old favorites interspersed with brand new music from artists like Nia Andrews and Marcos Valle.
Obviously we’ve been waiting for this video (even though it’s been available on iTunes for a few days), the same way we’re waiting for the full John Legend & The Roots album Wake Up! In the meantime, check out the video of The Roots, John Legend, Melanie Fiona and Common reworking an old soul classic.
