The Beatles – “Strawberry Fields Forever” (Love Version)

The Beatles – “I Me Mine” (Let It Be Naked Version)

an incredible remix done by the man, the myth, the legend George Martin and his son Giles. off the Love album released in November of ’06, as a soundtrack to the Cirque du Soleil show, “Strawberry Fields Forever” is built off an early acoustic demo made by John. Martin takes the song’s coda concept and runs with it, creating an incredible collage of themes from throughout The Beatles catalogue.

this brakes down the writing and recording process of “Strawberry Fields Forever” and here’s a killer link to get some of those early versions. speaking of their writing process, below is a highlight from their last original release.. the ‘Let It Be’ film, George Harrison’s “I Me Mine”. complete with John and Yoko making out and waltzing in fine fashion..

TV on the Radio – “DLZ”

tv-on-the-radio3

TV on the Radio – “DLZ”

there was a conversation not too long ago about whether or not music could be intellectual and enjoyable at the same time. either way you like to look at it, TV on the Radio is one of the few bands that can walk that fine line, making music with progressive ideas while maintaining a level of enjoyable pop sensibility. off Dear Science, “DLZ” has grown to be a favorite..

Anuhea – “Big Deal”

anuhea

Anuhea – “Big Deal”

reggae and r&b from hawaii’s Rylee Anuheake’alaokalokelani Jenkins… thankfully better known as Anuhea. she’s got some seriously sultry pipes, and “Big Deal”, off her new self-titled record is a solid summer jam that teaches us Anuhea has no shame about keeping her ego in check.

purchase if you dig..

Portugal. The Man – “Do You”

Portugal. The Man – “People Say”

a few from their fourth coming album The Satanic Satanist due July 21st. portugal. the man are a particularly prolific and consistent band.. four albums in four years is definitely an accomplishment, especially considering they’re all pretty dec. only US dates are lolla and outside lands this summer, stoked to hear the new stuff live. “what a lovely day yeah we won the war, we may have lost a million people but we got a million more… it’ll be alright… all the people they’ll see” you know, just telling it like it is..
