Once again, M.I.A. makes most other videos look lame. M.I.A. has an uncanny ability to put together tough tracks and videos to match. See her latest video “Borders” which plays tribute to refugees. Just like her “Bad Girls” video that had her rocking in the desert top side leaning on a BMW while she was doing her nails, M.I.A. is back at it with another music video that shines. M.I.A. directed this video and it’s extremely captivating. The track is so stellar that it’s hard to not play this several times. (How can you review a song without listening to it at least 10 times anyway? – you should hear something new each time)
The hook is straight classic M.I.A. singable and well put together. The beat is killer and the combination of the video and the track is A+ material that is rare. The bass is 808 heavy and lulls with it’s own humming sound that most producers can’t engineer. Watch the video below
Download #SaintCecilia EP for free! available now at foofighters.com The new EP is a 5 set of previously unreleased music from the band that continues to show recording and touring longevity. David Grohl and company put together another solid collection of music and you can download it for free. On the website you will see the message from Grohl to Parisians. Listen to the EP and you’ll hear the same style of slashing guitars and power chords the band is known for with a combination of postpunk/grunge. The song “Iron Rooster” has less of a raw sound and employs some clean guitars. Saint Cecilia is a good listen. The history of of music has only had a few artists who have overcome the tragedy of losing a lead singer and led successful careers – we can only think of a few, Joy Division which turned into New Order and Grohl’s Foo Fighters. Good to see the music (although different) lives on.
The bass on this track is straight ridiculous. Listen to this remix of “I’m Here,” from the Australian group Bankrupt Billionaires.

Fetty Wap is back with new music. He has just released a new song called “GrandMa” with a pretty unique theme. It’s not a “Dear Momma” type of song and is a bit less serious. “My grandma says her grandson crazy... the track starts as Fetty Wap explains why his pants sag. In a very creative way, he tries to bridge the gap between generations by explaining a few terms to Grandma. Grandma say’s “I don’t know what bandz is baby?” – And of course Fetty explains that’s he’s caked up with cash which causes stress to his gear…. .. Listen to the song for yourself – it’s only a couple of minutes long – you’ll probably play it back a couple of times..
Checkout the smiley faces and the fun times being had in the new video from TDot-ILLDude called “All Good”. The video came out like the name suggests – all good, with people having a good time – worry free.
