Culture Bully & DJ MDSB Present: The Best of 2007

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: , , .

#1) LCD Soundsystem Sound of Silver It’s not that Sound of Silver is the best album of the year musically speaking, but lyrically it’s what touched me most in 2007. Don’t get me wrong, the churning, building piano on “All My Friends” and the progressive girth of “Get Innocuous” are just two examples of James […]

Best Music Videos of 2007

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

10. Liars “Plaster Casts of Everything” Recasting scenes reminiscent to that of David Lynch’s mind-boggling Lost Highway might seem something horribly inappropriate given the context of the standard music video. Given also that it crosses disturbing light projection with brutally honest images of the human body, the video sound more and more like something inconducive […]

The Top 5 Albums That Should Have Been Really Good, But Weren’t: 2007

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

5. The Chemical Brothers We Are The Night Long since past is the time when The Chemical Brothers delivered their “Block Rockin’ Beats” but 2007 developed as a year in which electronic artists were given their window of opportunity back into mainstream pop music. Veteran acts such as Cassius released new material to critical praise, […]

Atmosphere “The Rooster”

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

In 2001 when Atmosphere was introduced to my loosely knit group of friends, Lucy Ford appeared as apart of a sect of hip hop that we hadn’t heard yet. Lyrically the music appeared urban as it tossed around words about the nature of streets life and the surrounding environment; but the album (cassette tape at […]

Dave Hill’s Best of 2007 & Seasonal Employment

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Even to me it seems like I’ve been posting way too much Dave Hill content as of late, but in all fairness he’s bringing more pain than a hundred girls and a hundred cups…or something to that extent, I still haven’t watched the video so I don’t know what all the fuss is about. Anyways, […]

Billy Childish & Accepting Interpol as a Business, Not Art

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Up until watching this Soft Focus feature Billy Childish was but a name I had merely heard along the way to this day. The following research that went into further figuring out just who this Childish character is lead me to a realization that I had a better understanding of his work than I previously […]

America Has Spoken: And It Wants Diet Cherry Chocolate Dr. Pepper with a Splash of Tay Zonday

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

When does a novelty act become a superstar? When such a novelty is a key ingredient in a blazing new ad campaign, that’s when. Given that I too would probably take the pay day (rent ain’t cheap boss) I cannot really say anything bad about Mr. Adam Bahner (aka Tay Zonday); but I can say […]

Just When You Thought Hyphy Was Forever, Whitey Crashed The Party And Ruined Everything (Again)

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

As with most things in American culture, one can gauge how far past a trend is by how white is becomes. That being said, it seemed only a matter of time before hyphy went the way of the crunk – white and tired. Did it peak with Mistah FAB, Ghost Ride The Whip: The Movie, […]

The Top 10 Musical Performances on Late Night TV of 2007

10. Peter, Bjorn & John feat. Victoria Bergsman “Young Folks” from Late Night with Conan O’Brien 01/29/2007 Does anyone remember the embarrassingly unimportant issue of Peter, Bjorn & John using a whistle track during their live performances? ‘Round the turn of the new year, just as the band was breaking the American market, things got […]
