FEATURED INDIE POP QUARTET: ALT- J

This song is great. But in particular the video, is an amazing creative 21st century version of the famous painting The School Of Athens by Raphael, using characters of lower socio-economic status in a room similar to the painting's background. But the song is about love and loss. And the triangle is his favourite shape. Nice.

"Let's tessellate"

THE FRATELLIS - WHISTLE FOR THE CHOIR


So if you're crazy I don't care you amaze me
Oh your a stupid girl, oh me, oh my, you talk
I die, you smile, you laugh, I cry
And only, a girl like you could be lonely
And it's a crying shame, if you would think the same
A boy like me's just irresistible

RAP CULTURE: SOMETHING FROM NOTHING - THE ART OF RAP (DOCUMENTARY FILM)


We can't wait for this to be released! The truth be told about it now

SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP is a feature length performance documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is Rap music. At the wheel of this unstoppable beast is the film's director and interviewer Ice-T.

According to Billboard, Ice-T has enlisted 50 different legend emcees, including Eminem, Kanye West, Dr. Dre, Common, Nas and many others, to discuss the science behind their lyrical craft. He said that the current influence of pop music in Hip Hop led him to want to make a film discussing the serious art of rhyming.

"I've interviewed 50 emcees - everybody - [from] Kanye West, Ice Cube, Eminem to Melle Mell, Grandmaster Caz," explained Ice. "The Hip Hop scene [has] bec[o]me so pop. I was like, 'I'm gonna do a movie about real rappers and what inspired us.' Maybe that'll hit a reset button on the game and let these kids know it's not just about a pop record. Rap can do a lot."


The Art of Rap
also features powerful appearances from rap veterans and originators like Ice Cube, Melle Mel, Grandmaster Caz and Immortal Technique. A trailer for the film can be seen below.
