It’s been a while … but Mar is back with another variation. This time the Aphex Twins’ track “Avril 14th” has been reworked into a fragile sounding ballad accompanied by heartwrenching visuals. He gets a little help from one of my favourites Sjerzdene.

KID CUDI – NO ONE BELIEVES ME (MUSIC VIDEO) by Noggy

The Fright Night remake will drop pretty soon in a cinema near you. Even though it’s meant to be a comedy of some sort, I don’t think I will be attending any of the screenings.

You are probably scratching the back of your head and wondering how “Fright Night” and Kid Cudi add up?

Wonder no more cause there is a very simple explanation. Kid Cudi’s latest track “No one believes me” will be featured on the Fright Night soundtrack and frankly the sound and visuals fit the purpose.

Personally I really love the slightly sinister song. The video, however well directed, is kinda creepy. But hey … see what you think. You can’t say I didn’t warn you…

I could just blog the video, but the back story to this live performance video is way to interesting not to share. When the “official” music video for “Close your Eyes” came out at the of 2010 I thought it was okay and moved on to whatever was next.

Obviously I was not paying attention cause there is a lot more to The Bullits their soon to be released debut “They die by dawn and other short stories”.

The album combines visual & audio elements and basically is the story of Amelia Sparks, an ice-cold murderess awaiting execution on death row. First heard on their  debut single ‘Close Your Eyes’ Sparks character is narrated by Lucy Liu and weaves in and out of the albums tracks revealing her story and the actions that lead to her formidable position.

The events are also played out in real time on The Bullitts Twitter page (http://twitter.com/#!/thebullitts) where Amelia’s diary is serialised in of the moment tweets – it also features an illustrious cast of actors such as Idris Elba who plays detective Saul Emmanuel.

Of course it’s not all gimmick cause this release features some of the worlds most respected and celebrated artists  like Tori Amos, Jay Electronica, Mos Def and Roisin Murphy. Curious? … You are going to have to wait till fall of 2011.

It doesn’t really matter if it’s soul, pop, rock or opera … this man can sing anything without losing credibility.It should come as no surprise that he rocks the hell out of the Soft Cell classic “Tainted Love”.

There is not much left to say about Mr. Blake … his highly anticipated, selftitled album is pretty much well received. The only thing left to keep the buzz going are the music video’s. His lates, the music video for Lindesfarne, is most certainly a unique experience.
