Who we need to cut over this Aretha Franklin autotune?

rafi-dangelo:

Man….I started listening to Aretha’s cover of “Rolling in the Deep” and I still ain’t been able to put my face together.  How do you autotune Aretha Franklin??  Who did this!  I can’t find any producers for her new album of diva covers other than Babyface & Andre 3000 and my heart just doesn’t want to let me believe they really did this to her.

Y’all.  Everything about this is already a mess.  Who let Coco Montrese do Aretha’s make-up?  I thought we decided garage-door solid brows-to-lashes monotone went out in 1993?

this is literally just a minute of pop punk bands saying the word “friends” clipped together and it is amazing

EPISODE 10 - yr hosts (again)

Here’s the tenth episode of Swoonstep, a podcast where brilliant, cute, hilarious women talk music and crushes. This week on Swoonstep, your babely hosts are back solo to talk about a topic near and dear to their hearts: women in music and pop culture criticism. We also discuss our favorite music in 2014 so far. Plus, we cover a couple of weird crushes that just…haven’t come up in an episode of Swoonstep so far, including Crystal’s love of cheeseball Pitbull, Megan’s love of sad boy Burial, and our dislike of indie rockers (sorry boys).

We say this every week, but if you’re a woman (or non-cis dude) who wants to talk about music and talk about musician crushes, please reach out. Swoonstep aims to be a space where women are allowed to rant and rave and swoon with abandon because, for real, women are really the best. Women are thoughtful and deliberate and kind, biting and hilarious and brilliant. That’s important to us, so come hang out with us and let us hear your thoughts. Thanks for listening!

Around the 3 1/2 minute mark this turns into such a beautiful piece of ambiance.

I already posted this song called Good Life when TJH87 released it on their Soundcloud-page, but now we have a clever video too. See if you can recognize all the album covers that float by there. This version of the song is almost two minutes shorter though.

In the end of the video it says "In Memory Of Stupido-Shop Record Store 1995-2014". That record shop, last address on Helsinginkatu 16 in a part of Helsinki called Kallio, has been central to many local record crate diggers and I am sad to hear that they had to close down due to economical difficulties. Finding classic albums or unknown greats in record crates often inspires great new music.
