AWOPBAMBOOM – Vol. 14 – Music 4 Music People

From the North Of Nine to the Biebs, here’s what orbiting our musical universe this week:

Who We’re Listening To:

Elle King

Can’t wait to enter a club this summer and hear Elle King’s “Ex’s & Oh’s” turned up to the elevens.  “Always want to come and never want to leave.” Purrrrr-fect!

Circa Waves

These fine Englishmen are fresh on the scene following their 5-track debut album, “T-Shirt Weather.”

Anthony Lewis

Anthony Lewis is certainly new to the industry at 17 years old but he’s talented and working with T.I., which helps.

Toro y Moi

His album What For? drops on April 7thth. Till then, here’s a splishy splash of a tranquil track:

 

North of Nine

You’ll actually be able to find some of their tracks for free on iTunes. Our guess, they won’t be for much longer.

 

The Mowgli’s

Presenting Southern California’s finest alternative rock…

Classic Music Videos

The Darkness, “I Believe in a Thing Called Love”

Easy to say the 2000s inspired some wacky videos.

Dusky, “Yoohoo”

Diggin’ the 80s dance vibe effused with modern day electronica in this one.

Pulp, “Common People”

If David Bowie and David Byrne had a boy child together, it would probably look and act like Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker. Don’t believe us?

NEWS: The Roast

Justin Bieber 

For his 21st birthday bash Justin Bieber volunteered himself to be roasted on Comedy Central. Airing last night, the roast is already regarded as Comedy Central’s biggest hit. Roasters included Martha Stewart, Shaq, Snoop Dogg, and Roast Master, Kevin Hart. From off-color jokes to recaps of wayward antics, the Biebs seemed uncomfortable all night. Following a surprise roast appearance from Ron Burgundy, Bieber was given a chance to make amends, but not before making some jokes of his own. Check out Billboard’s top 21 jokes from the night in the link below.
