Flux Pavilion “Bass Cannon” Video

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

“The scientist Flux and his minion Doctor P perform some perverted audio experiments on some unwilling candidates in the official video to Bass Cannon!” A video far more amusing to watch than its premise might suggest, “Bass Cannon” is the most recent single from UK Dupstepper Flux Pavilion. [This post was first published by Culture […]

Gold Panda “Marriage (Star Slinger Remix)”

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Produced by visual artist Anže Sekelj and photographer Lucijan Kranjc, this video for Star Slinger‘s “Marriage” remix is engrossing in its mesmerizing light display. Transposing objects without having them ever actually move, the creative draw of the team’s visual display is melded nicely into the various beats and punches of the track. The original version […]

Beastie Boys “Hot Sauce Committee Part 2” Review

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

Aside from breathing new life into a nearly 25 year old meme with the celebrity cameo-heavy Fight For Your Right Revisited short film, it’s no wonder that the campaign behind the Beastie Boys‘ Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 has been so tightly focused on building a sense of nostalgia around the group. For fans who […]

Lykke Li on Later… with Jools Holland

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

What is there that can be said to deflate the power of Lykke Li‘s “Get Some“? Since it first debuted last October there’s been little negative to come from her entire Wounded Rhymes release in general, but the lead single stands as something particularly unique from the album’s nine other tracks. Could it be the […]

Britney Spears feat. Nicki Minaj & Ke$ha “Till the World Ends (Remix)”

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

It could be that “Till The World Ends” is simply just a fantastic base to build any remix from, but this new version of the Femme Fatale track featuring Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj is sounding exceptionally killer. Led with a sharp-tongued introduction by Minaj, the song itself features harsher breaks (especially later in the song) […]

Erin Manning “Back and Forth” (Influenza)

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

It’s rare that music can appropriately be labeled as deceptive, but such an explanation might hold true for Back and Forth, the new EP from Nashville’s Erin Manning. Though physically unimposing, the petite vocalist maintains a commanding presence with a voice that is peppered with far more passion and explosiveness than her appearance or singer/songwriter […]

Chaz Kangas feat. Mac Lethal “Scrambled Eggs”

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

A Personal Reference by Chaz Kangas While being far from confrontational, the tone of New York MC Chaz Kangas’ new album A Personal Reference has the potential to be very divisive. He’s funny without being snarky and remains true to his voice and interests without satirizing, but in sounding musically similar to Atom and His […]

Beyonce “Girls (Who Run the World)”

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Leading the way from Beyonce’s forthcoming solo album is the vivacious “Girls,” a drumline heavy call and response banger that aches to be played at full volume. In light of recent releases from the likes of Britney Spears and Lady Gaga it’s encouraging to hear another big name drop some new material, and fortunately its momentous […]

Racism in Rap

[Note: This article uses language which some readers might find particularly offensive.

Matic Lee “Flyin’ Nimbus”

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

Originally having no prior idea as to what a flyin’ nimbus was (personally), Matic Lee is back with a bit of a lesson in pop culture to accompany one of his latest free-flowing joints. The Dragonball wiki (what, you thought there wasn’t a Dragonball wiki?) explains a flying nimbus as “a yellow magical cloud that […]

Vast Air “Nomad” Video

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

It feels like a lifetime since Vast Aire’s new release was first announced — it’s been about four months since we first heard his Cappadonna collab and the phenomenal “Sour Diesel” — but despite the LP simmering on the back burner for months, Can Ox 2010: A Street Odyssey has now been given a street […]

The Kills Perform “Satellite” on Conan

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

The Kills performing “Satellite” on Conan with a trio of backup singers to kick in that extra bit of soul? Where do I sign up? Perhaps the setup leaves too slick a sound for your liking? You’re in luck: in addition to the television performance a second web-exclusive video has been released of the duo […]

RJD2 “Might As Well Step Forward”

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Directed by Brad Hasse and featuring the phenomenal B-boy stylings of Quest Crew comes this new video for “Might As Well Step Forward” by RJD2. While the Inversions of the Colossus feature would likely offer itself as a great soundtrack for any visuals to jump off from, the LA dance collective immediately feed off the […]

Cheap Time “Another Time” Video

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

Ever feel like life puts too many tangents in the way between you and a good time? If you’re in need of some straight ahead, no frills snarling garage punk, Cass Records is here to help with the latest release from Jeffrey Novak and Cheap Time, offering up a money-back “no tangent guarantee.”* “Another Time” […]

If Nardwuar Can Do It, You Can Do It, Too!

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

For those still unfamiliar with Nardwuar (his Odd Future SXSW interview ring a bell?), the Canadian radio and television personality has been going strong and doing his thing for well over two decades. One of the higher profile aspects of “his thing” has been creating a niche for himself as one of the world’s most […]

Arctic Monkeys “Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair” Video

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Today the Arctic Monkeys released some psychedelic visuals for the band’s single which premiered this past Monday on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show. Like any number of DIY found-footage videos, “Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair” reinforces the idea that (for the most part) once you’ve seen one trippy acid-dream video you’ve […]

How to Avoid Pissing Off Music Bloggers (And Several Other Handy Tips for Artists)

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

This week Culture Bully is celebrating its sixth anniversary and in looking back on the years it quickly becomes evident that even during such a short amount of time the online musical landscape has changed immensely. While the blogosphere on the whole has made many complex advances over the years, music blogs in particular have […]

Foo Fighters “Wasting Light” Review

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

The release of Wasting Light from the Foo Fighters carries with it an unusual sense of urgency that hasn’t been experienced for quite some time with the band. Perhaps the gravity of the release is due in part to the new documentary tackling the Foo’s history and recent tribulations, a film which has been largely marketed […]

Adrian Champion “Stars & Stripes” – A White Stripes Remix Album

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

The most immediately attractive aspect of Stars & Stripes is the robust character that resonates throughout the release. White Stripes remixes aren’t exactly a new invention — hell, one of my favorite mashups from 2005 was DJ Riko’s reworking of Ludacris’ “Stand Up” with the duo’s “My Doorbell” — but the album isn’t as simple […]

Rihanna feat. Britney Spears “S&M (Remix)”

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Whatever your opinion was of the original version of Rihanna’s “S&M,” chances are you’re going to hold the exact same feeling toward this newly released remix featuring Britney Spears. The original is a bit tacky both lyrically and musically and introducing Britney to amp up the kinky anthem only goes to emphasize that aspect even […]

Coolio Está Demasiado Caliente

Published in Blog. Tags: .

A few weeks after “Wonderwall” had captivated listeners in the UK, Coolio returned with a flow back in your ear. One of Coolio’s greatest assets was that you didn’t have to be a rap connoisseur to get down with the man’s music back in the ’90s; much like the Spin Doctors, I think that some […]

Ryan Adams Ain’t Got Shit on the Pops

Published in Blog. Tags: .

Q: What did you think about Ryan Adams’ version of “Wonderwall”? A: It’s shit to me, man. I like Ryan Adams and I like some of his songs. But I hated what he did with “Wonderwall.” That quote comes from a recent interview Liam Gallagher did with MTV, largely discussing his new band Beady Eye […]

The AK “740”

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

Though not as intense as much of the trunk music which flowed with his Kaby’s Day Out mixtape, the AK‘s “740″ is setting a strong trend for what’s to come with another upcoming release, Stigmatic. Not only does the track offer a chill vibe and a few humorous verbal stabs along the way, but it […]

Black Lips “Modern Art” Video

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Following “Go Out and Get It!,” the music video for “Modern Art” offers the second taste from the Black Lips’ forthcoming album Arabia Mountain. It’s going to be interesting to see how influential Mark Ronson was in terms of guiding the LP’s production, but the first two tracks seem to suggest that the theme which […]

Nas & Damian Marley “Land of Promise” Video

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

While Distant Relatives hasn’t exactly achieved the level of critical acclaim (or commercial success) that the combination of Marley and Nas are capable of garnering, it still stands to reason that the album may become more attractive to the masses as it’s given years to breathe. “As We Enter” remains a personal top 10 track […]

Sun Soakin’ Bulges in the Shade

Published in Blog. Tags: .

Yesterday’s glance back at “Big Me” from the Foo Fighters triggered a thought about another music video that was released right around the same time as it; that being the clip for “Peaches” by the Presidents of the United States of America. Actually, after scouring the the web for some information I was able to […]

The Fresh Fighter

Published in Blog. Tags: .

With the new Foo Fighters album becoming available online during the past 24 hours it felt appropriate to continue this journey back into the ’90s with a look at the group’s first crossover hit: “Big Me.” With other standouts from the Foo’s debut album including such hard-hitting tracks as “I’ll Stick Around” and “This is […]

Openmic “Can You Blame Him?”

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

Following a drop of “The Code” last week with a listening party over the weekend, Nashville’s Openmic is slowly revealing his forthcoming For The Rebels mixtape as something that demands a bit of attention. In “Can You Blame Him?” his continuous flow offers countless lyrical subtleties that are easy to overlook — “Dreamin’ like I […]

Danger Mouse, Daniele Luppi & Jack White “Two Against One”

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

New music was unveiled today from Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi’s Rome project, which will see its official release May 16 in the UK and May 17 stateside. It was announced earlier this week that the duo’s “Two Against One” collaboration with Jack White and “Black” with Norah Jones will both be featured on an […]
