Video: Emeli Sande – “Clown”

 

In this poignant black and white military themed short film, Emeli Sande sings fervently as she’s shown standing up for her beliefs and her freedom. Got to respect that poise she keeps around all those belittling men. And judging from how we’ve seen Emeli speak in interviews and at shows, it’s clear that she carries the same resolve and courage in her real life as well. Stand up!

New Release: Captain Planet – ‘Mystery Trip, Vol. 1′ + Limited Edition Cassette & Walkman + Hand Painted Boombox Contest

 

Captain Planet is just continuing to knock ‘em out with absolutely no shame. His most recent release, Mystery Trip Vol. 1, is quite the special one with all the goodies that come along. Firstly, we strongly advise you to listen to the entire mixtape below and get to percolating.

The globetrotting man blends together obscure cuts from around the world and original production to create glorious whirlwind of sound. On this mixtape, you’ll travel across generations and continents, visiting Senegal, Jamaica, Ghana, Puerto Rico, Peru, Brazil, Italy, Korea, Guadeloupe, and Zimbabwe.

This mix will be released digitally and as limited edition cassette tapes. The limited edition sets will also come with an exclusive batch of hand-painted walkmen with one-of-a-kind designs by Captain Planet himself. You can peep those photos after the jump.

Another snazzy component to the release is Turntable Lab’s sample-spotting contest, which includes the grand prize of a hand-painted Boombox (vintage 1982 Panasonic RX-5110) designed by sir Captain Planet himself – none like it exist anywhere else!

Enter the Turntable Lab contest to win a vintage boombox hand-painted by Captain Planet.
