Just picked up this tip from Angry Asian Man: Kero One‘s new single, “Asian Kids” drops on May 18th! Check out Dumbfoundead talking up the track (and a short clip of the new hotness) here.
You can pick up the new single from Amazon or iTunes.
Blue Scholars has been known to lay down some funky goodness in the past. But here we find Prometheus Brown taking things to a political level with his “ode” to Michelle Malkin. Now, we’re not a political blog and we’re certainly not interested in getting into that sort of conversation… But this song is kind of awesome, if for no other reason than the Sade sample is pretty sick.
Free download available from the Blue Scholars website.
I don’t really watch American Idol. But there’s a guy named John Park who sounds phenomental. Check out his audition here:
I suppose it’s a little weird that everyone keeps commenting on how “surprised” they are at his voice. I guess William Hung’s legacy still haunts the American Idol audition rooms… But aside from that (and Shania’s obsession with his “bottom end” and his “lips”), the man can sing.
John Park, you’ve got my vote.
What a great songwriter Big Phony is… As he explains at the beginning of this new video produced by The Mighty Fifty:
“I don’t really write love songs ‘cuz I’ve never been in love… But this is more of a promise to love.”
Check it out:
Big Phony’s new album will be out this fall, and you KNOW BIC is going to be all over it! Can’t wait!
I am TOTALLY diggin’ on this new video from Blue Scholars. It’s called HI-808 and it is pretty awesome:
They’re coming out with a new EP entitled OOF! very soon… For more on that, check out their website here! (you can even download a free mp3 of HI-808!)
The performers for Kollaboration Acoustic III got together to record and film this cover of Michael Jackson’s “Heal The World.” Seen in the video are Alfa, Mike Isberto, Jinah Kim, Gerald Ko, Megan Lee, Yoori Park, Susanna Yoon. The promo was directed by Roy Choi.
The show will be at the Ford Amphitheater in Hollywood, CA on 8/22/09. You can purchse tickets for the show here!
