[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/ve8BV-XxlJ8" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

A beautifully shot conversation between Lianne La Havas and VV Brown. Lianne discusses how she first got into music when she was seven years old, what she listened to while growing up, what “luxurious, velvety, gravely” voices (what a description) inspire her to sing, and meeting Bon Iver, amongst a few othen fun tidbits. Who can be mad at two pretty talented ladies chatting about music, fashion, and inspiration, really?

Video: ERIMAJ – “Social Life” (Live At The Loft)

 

Our friends at Live At The Loft have done it yet again and topped themselves with a lust-worthy video of nostalgic visuals and all too sexy sounds. Featured are none other than some more pals of ours – ERIMAJ. You might remember these folks from their addictive little tune, “Conflict Of A Man,” that we featured last year.

The video above for ERIMAJ’s live performance of “Social Life” is absolutely just rude – can they tone down the awesome like a little, at least? Man – so good, too good – spine tingling bliss.
