Mark Ronson – Bang Bang Bang (ft. MNDR & Q-Tip)

Took me a couple of listens but I finally figured out who MNDR (pseudonym of Amanda Warner) reminds me of on this track, it’s Missing Person’s lead singer, Dale Bozzio – check her  out here:  “Walking in LA“.
So Mark Ronson (as in Grammy winner – produce of the year 2008 for Amy Winehouse’s, “Back to Black”) is set to release a new full length titled, “Record Collection”, from which this is the first single.  And damn, it’s good.   Great jam for summer with its breezy vibe and 80’s esque keyboards.   Mark gets help on this track from not only MNDR but also Q-TIP.  This is an automatic for my iPod.

Ceo – Come With Me

My new favorite song as of this morning.   Really well crafted track that makes creative use of a string sample.  It’s just the right amount of twist on the sample that makes this track stand out.  This track is taken from the forthcoming full lenght album titled “White Magic” due out June 29th.
Ceo is the solo project of  Eric Berglund of The Tough Alliance.

NEW: Whitey – Dinosaur

After what has felt like an eternity since his last release, albeit a leaked version of his album, “Great Shakes” back in 2007 is a new full length from the man himself, Whitey!   His new album is titled, “Canned Laughter” and can be purchased here from Amazon:  Canned Laughter.      On this particular track whitey incorporates more dance floor ethos with a driving rock edge floor stomper in Dinosaur.  And all i have to say is, welcome back Whitey!  By the way the track starts off with “canned laughter” so let this track breath for a minute for it to really build.

He also has a new blog up here: http://njwhitey.wordpress.com/

Lyrics:

DINOSAUR
DIDNT KNOW, HE WOULD FALL
-NOW HE’S GONE.
YEARS GO BY, SO MUCH TIME..
NUMBER ONE, LIVING IT, KILLING IT
-NOW HE’S GONE.
FORM TO FORM, LIFE KEEPS ON

EACH IN TURN
HAS A DAY IN THE SUN.
LIFE GOES ON
FORM TO FORM- TOOTH AND CLAW.
YOU AND ME,
AND EVERYBODY YOU CAN SEE,
ARE ANIMALS –
AND ANIMALS RISE AND FALL.

WE’LL NEVER END
WE CARRY ON
AND WE CAN NEVER KNOW
WHAT WE’LL BECOME.
IT’S SOMETHING OF A SYMPHONY
WHERE THE LITTLE NOTES
WERE YOU AND ME.
SKIN AND BONE, THATS ALL OF US
BECOME THE PAST, BECOME THE DUST
BUT WE’LL NEVER END — WE NEVER END.
