KILLER COVER: STEVE’N’SEAGULLS COVERS AC/DC
This cover is great. Steve’n’Seagulls. I don’t know much about this band. And their Facebook page doesn’t really help me either … it’s in a foreign language!!! … but their cover of hillbilly/folk cover of AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” is internet gold.
MUSIC INSTA-BABE: SHANNON BEX
So, I just read that females pop/R&B group Danity Kane has broken up again. Though many of the people are more partial to either Dawn Richard’s slender figure of Aubrey O’Day’s curvy features, I’ve always been partial to Shannon Bex. Unfortunately, Shannon is married, but that doesn’t mean we can’t ogle her on her social media profiles.Why don’t you follow here, and there other members of Danity Kane (I’m assuming that following their band profile won’t do you any good). : @Shannon_Bex.

THE WORST USE OF HIP HOP IN A CAR COMMERCIAL
Hip-hop has been used to sell a lot of products over the years, but we’ve come a long way from Eminem’s Chrysler commercial. Toyota made a commerical for the Sienna line, and …. it … is … just … terrible. I hope that Busta got paid a a nice penny for being a part of it.
MUSIC NEWS/STUFF YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
Tom Petty scores his first-ever No. 1 album with “Hypnotic Eye”. It’s about damn time, Tom! lol.
I’m a music attorney, so I’m pretty familiar with the difference types of income that come in from the exploitation of a sound recording. Billboard.com put together a pretty nifty “cheat sheet” to help you musicians navigate the basics.
I’m not going to Outside Lands, but if I were, I would pick up a bunch of the stamps they are selling at the music festival. Why? Because they will debuting Janis Joplin Forever Stamps! Don’t worry about me though … I have friends in low places.
It sucks when musicians, who are trying to speak out on important social matters, get the assaulted for speaking their mind. Apparently, Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes was assaulted by Lollapalooza security guards after speaking out about police brutality. From having his apartment burn down, to getting beaten up by guards that are supposed to be there to protect him, I feel bad for the dude.
Devonté “Dev” Hynes is a British singer/composer/songwriter and producer who performs under the stage name “Blood Orange”. What you may not know about him, however, is that he is a prolific song writer who has worked with high profile recording artists like The Chemical Brothers, Florence and the Machine, Sky Ferreira and Britney Spears, to name a few.
He performed at Coachella in support of his fourth solo album “Cupid Deluxe”. Critics have described his music as alternative dance, “chill wave” or indie electronic, but his 80’s and 90’s influenced music can simply be described as … for lack of better words … “sexy-time” music. The mood Dev Hynes sets with his compositions is amazingly seductive. I would have preferred a set time in the evening- that would have really enhanced the overall mood of the set- but even under the blazing, desert sun, I noticed couples grinding to the music.
For his performance at Coachella, he was accompanied by several of the vocalists who appear on “Cupid Deluxe”: Caroline Polachek of Chairlift (on “Chamakay” and “Chosen”) and Friends‘ Samantha Urbani (on “You’re Not Good Enough” (my personal favorite), “It Is What It Is” and “Always Let U Down”).
