I don’t know what it was that led me to Kasabian’s webiste just right now, but I was quite awe struck about finding out the change on their site, as well as the press about their new album, Empire. Meanwhile, I also found out that they were about to perform at Letterman in just a few minutes. I was fortunate enough to catch them.
Anyways, make sure to have a listen to this group if you haven’t already. As I’ve said before, “these blokes rock rat-ass!” So what about it eh?! Give ’em a play and I promise you, you’ll hear nothing more than pure exhilaration!
This is an extemely sad day. We have lost one of the greatest producers of all time, period. That fact is not even up for debate. For us fans and for those that were lucky enough to know Dilla, this is a tough pill to swallow. What makes it worse is knowing that the majority of the hip hop world will not mourn this loss like those in our community. We can only hope that one day the world will know his music the way die hard Dilla fans do, and he will posthumously recieve the respect and admiration that his influence commands. RIP Dilla Dog.
James Yancey passed around 8:00 this morning in Los Angeles, California. His latest album, Donuts, was released earlier this week.
M.I.A. (aka. Maya Arulpragasam) will be in SF this week. She’ll be over at the Virgin Megastore doing an in-store performance and signing this Wednesday, October 5th at 6pm. Hope to catch that and get some picks of her in action.
