Passion Pit – The Reeling

by Justin Andert on March 26, 2009


The first single from Passion Pit’s new album Manners is titled The Reeling. It features New York Children’s choir PS 22 (watch video below). The single follows the obscure sounds of their single Sleephead, but has a more widespread appeal.

Metric released the video for their single Gimme Sympathy earlier this week. The video follows lead singer Emily Haines through a live performance of the song as she moves from instrument to instrument. Watch the video below to see how it was made. The video was shot in one take, which makes it that much more impressive.

Movement ’09 Initial Line-Up Announced

by Justin Andert on March 19, 2009


Paxahaus has done it again. The initial line-up is looking very good for Movement ’09, Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival that takes place every Memorial Day weekend. Flying Lotus? Bassnectar? RJD2? Z-Trip? Don’t mind if I do…..



Alice Russell brought her unbelievably powerful pipes along with her British soul to the Cedar Cultural Center on Saturday night. Her set featured a full backing band and showed off her absurd vocal power and range. The Cedar catered to the people’s desire to move to her beat as they opened up the center of the auditorium for standing/dancing.

Her live rendition of The White Stripe’s Seven Nation Army will put you on your arse.

Soundset 09

The Midwest hip-hop festival, Soundset 09, has moved off the burning asphalt of Minneapolis’ Metrodome parking lot, and onto the lush grass of Canterbury Park (Shakopee, MN), and judging by the first round of artists it’s going to be just as hot. The festival is May 24, 2009, but locals get the jump, as Rhymesayers Entertainment is offering presale tickets and a FREE screen printed festival poster to the first 100 tickets sold (which are probably sold out as I type) at Fifth Element in Minneapolis. Check the release for more presale info.

Confirmed Main-Stage Artists (more to come):
MF Doom
Brother Ali
Sage Francis with B. Dolan
Immortal Technique
El P featuring Mr. Dibbs
Eyedea & Abilities
Abstract Rude and I Self Devine
