I imagine that mothers and fathers everywhere can relate to this one. I’m still on #TeamIceGrill though.

Aloe Blacc – Green Lights (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on August 20th, 2011 by Hyphen

“There’s so many things to do / So many people I need to talk to”

Coming off a few days worth of vacation in Canada, that quote kinda sums up how I feel about life right now.  One of my favorite aspects to visiting a city like Vancouver is that the people up there are just far more friendly and outgoing (and interesting) than my fellow Americans.  Sorry folks, it’s true.  Every time I stepped out in Van City, I had fun conversations with people left and right.  Plus, they all instantly treated me like family.  Much appreciated y’all.

There are so many experiences I’m looking forward to having in life and if I can get green lights all along the trip like Aloe, life will be good.

Aloe Blacc x Miki x Jaybo – I Need A Dollar (live)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on July 30th, 2011 by Hyphen

Aloe’s given us numerous awesome performances of this record (remember this one?), but it’s so classic that it deserves yet another. Between the suit and the drink, he’s got a sort of Bob Harris, “for relaxing times, make it Suntory time” swag going on.

If you missed the time Aloe came to the Sound Session studios and absolutely demolished a live version of “Politician” for us, enjoy:

Aloe Blacc – Politician (Live on Sound Session)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Live Performances, Sound Session, Videos on August 15th, 2010 by Hyphen

Aloe Blacc visited us last week and while here, he blessed us with a live performance of “Politician,” singing soulfully and eloquently about our government officials. The full interview is coming soon, but I wanted y’all to see this video ASAP.  Nailed it in one take…

Be sure to cop Aloe’s Good Things album on Stones Throw, coming out September 28th.  Support good music!

Aloe Blacc & The Grand Scheme – Loving You Is Killing Me (live)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on August 1st, 2010 by Hyphen

Aloe’s about to drop one of the best albums of the year with September 28th’s Good Things.  It looks like he might be headed up to Seattle next week, and if so, we’ll see if he can stop by the SNSS studio.  Great to see this longtime MC get some shine with his new project.

Aloe Blacc – I Need A Dollar (video)

Woah…not only do we get some dope visuals for this great record, but halfway through, Aloe flips it and gives us a sneak preview of another song off his upcoming Good Things project.  Very few artists are as talented all around as this man…I once saw him kill a whole show just playing the trumpet and not even rhyming once.
