At this point in musical history the merger of rock n roll and hip-hop is not anything crazy. And we have some amazing highlights in the past with Public Enemy & Anthrax, The Roots, the Black Lips & GZA, and we have some not so spectacular moments with Jay-Z & Linkin Park and the late 90’s. And while this Fuel performance of label mates Mellowhype and Bass Drum of Death isn’t anything spectacular, they didn’t disappoint either.

Leftbrain looks happy and full of flow behind the keys, while BSDD are, and excuse the pun, a little mellow in their performance, but that could just be the weed. Hodgy Beats as always is entertaining as hell, even in this slower number, “64.” Easily becoming everyone’s favorite of the Oddies (come on everyone’s fav is still Earl), Hodgy has a stage presence lathered in the same mystery why so many people can’t stop but stare at Iggy Pop when he is in eyesight.

Mellowhype’s BlackandWhite is set to be re-mastered & reworked and will see the light of day this summer, while Bass Drum of Death are releasing GB City this Tuesday April 12, 2011.

I ran errands today, and i stopped by a small thrift store and bought pearl jam's "10" on cassette tape and "the freshman" with matthew broderick. i came home, ate a sandwich and put in the vhs. at some point in the movie, while still good, i picked up my computer and double dutied it.

i came about some great new and old music. i miss those days of discovering. it felt new today. everything. enough of that sappy shit.

expect some cool new explorations.

i leave you with this.

"Paki Not Indie" - Sunny Ali & The Kid

A couple of months ago I heard of a band from Philly called, Sunny Ali & the Kid. I was intrigued because it features, Hassan Ali, guitarist and fallen member of of the all Pakistani brother band, PO PO.

After a conversation with Yvynyl, I was informed that Ali wanted to ditch playing punk and concentrate on making country music. I'm sorry Ali, but at this point I'm not sure you can't stay away from your punk roots, but this isn't a bad thing. On Try Harder, the bands first release, SAK do have hints of country two-steppin in tracks like "Cand Stand You" and title track, "Try Harder." The band also have two acoustic heart hitters that really make me worried for the mental health of Hassan. My favorite track on the EP is the humorously titled, "You Know What Jawad," a goth-country jem both scary and catchy.

Check out their bandcamp site and download this EP for free before they take that feature away. Also with tee's, like the one below, how can I not love this band ::
