The adorable Yuna does a cover of her favorite Frank Ocean track, "Thinkin Bout You." Watch the video of the recording at her Los Angeles home. Interesting implementation of a cappella type vibes for the backing track.
The tingling "4th Stranger" by Szjerdene gets a sped up treatment a la the FS Green remix that dropped this week. A little housey, dubby, tropical, bouncy - just all around booty bumping goodness. Enjoy the stream below!
The swinging sounds of the Dirty Projectors are twirling around in our heads doing a marvelous dance right now. Earlier this week, the Brooklyn band released Swing Lo Magellan. The album traverses a plane of homey, familiar, cozy sounds through dissonance, folky nostalgia, vast soundscapes, and quirky croons. Loving the playfulness and nostalgic vibe of this project.

Paloma Faith not long ago tickled us with her YouTube acoustic set of performances - you may remember our post for the "Agony" acoustic. Now the songstress has got a new video for song called "30 Minute Love Affair." Just the title alone tantalizes.
The track is actually a recollection of an actual experience Paloma had - a fleeting connection in London’s Leicester Square at the age of fourteen. An older, sophisticated Paloma dawns a dainty look in neatly pressed curls and a shimmery dress singing coyly against juxtaposed scenes of a smoky burlesque show scene. Quick love indeed. Loving the 80s pop vibe on this track.
Her upcoming album, Fall To Grace will be hitting the US soon.
Arthur Baker has put together a pretty fascinating documentary on "how the Roland TR-808 changed the musical world starting from its most seminal record Planet Rock." Catch interviews from Questlove, Diplo, Skrillex, and many many other influencers. Interesting little mash up style to the trailer above, too. Look for Planet Rock and Other Tales of the 808 to drop in 2013!
