Drake – Best I Ever Had (One Minute Rule)

30 06 2009

After pulling a couple horrifying tunes from Pitchfork’s Best New Tracks, we’re back to the Billboard charts for today’s One Minute Rule. It was a fun journey checking out “music” by groups like Passion Pit and Bowerbirds, but I prefer my shit sugar-coated as opposed to all Pabst-soaked and vegan-y. I will however probably go back there eventually for a little change of pace.

The song “Best I Ever Had” by Drake is currently at the #27 spot on the Top 100. Just for clarification, I’ve never heard of this guy or this song before. I did however, just do a Google image search and there are some pictures where he looks a hell of a lot like Kid Cudi. I’m going to assume that he’s a rapper, but I have been thrown off in the past by R&B singers posing as rappers. Hitting play now…

Here’s the singer with a laptop walking around Japan. Pretty cool idea for a video I think.

Reverend Beat-Man – Global Music Project (Switzerland)

28 06 2009

Reverend Beatman

After finding about four or so incredible artists that I will listen to for probably the next few years, I’m really starting to enjoy the Global Music Project, despite the many frustrating hours I’ve been spending on Myspace to find them. When I do finally find an artist that is worth writing about, it’s always very refreshing and inspiring but  Switzerland’s Reverend Beat-Man damn near knocked me out when I hit play. To put it bluntly, he makes Tom Waits sound like an optimistic silver-spoon-fed little bitch.

Reverend Beat-Man’s music sounds like WWII-era jazz mixed with trashy rockabilly and the unbridled anger and passion of early grunge and punk bands. The end result is  a strange and beautiful mixture that could easily fit right into any scene from a Quintin Tarentino movie. To date, he’s released seven albums through indie label Voodoo Rhythms. It also looks like he tours quite frequently and will be demolishing the United States until mid-July of 2009 so check his Myspace page if you want to see him live.
