Ten Tigers, a song by Bonobo on Spotify.
This song is awesome - love “every day” samples. The album comes after the release of Cirrus which has an incredible animated video clip, taking the trend of using stock footage to another level.
Really solid tunes that make me wish I was pool side. Reminds me of this little gem from way back too.

The first gif video? Maybe not the first, but the first I’ve seen.
Jamie Lidell’s self titled is his 5th on Warp Records, yet this album is a step in a different direction for the Brit born artist.
With a bombastic voice and killer beat boxing skills, Lidell has always had some serious mouth talent - his one man laptop band has explored a huge range of genres; mostly tinted with a raw, soul sound.
On this album he seems to have turned to slick electronic production, paying homage to Prince and the 80s with his band Super Collider. The first single, You Naked, is a great tune and surely the best track on the album. Its edgy synth bassline, popping percussive accents and unusual, soul-style melody makes for an absolute banger of a pop tune. Other standouts for me were Big Love (talk about the 80s), What A Shame (down and dirty pop with hints of dub and a whole lot of overdrive) and In Your Mind (did Michael Jackson come back to life?) An interesting addition was why_ya_why - almost sounded like a Gorillaz track.
To me, many of the songs on the album are awash with too many layers of sound, and with almost every one hitting the four minute mark I find myself wishing for an aural break every once in a while.
A seasoned player in the music scene, Lidell is embracing the possibility of a well-deserved, successful pop album. Will his old fans like this direction? For now I think this is a fun record and an interesting change for the experimental and eclectic, Jamie Lidell.

I think I just made the worlds greatest salad. Candied walnuts (homemade), raisins, avocado, green apple, feta, cocktail olives and baby spinach. (Taken with instagram)

Such a beautifully constructed video and awareness concept. Watch the whole thing. Get involved. I personally know amazing people who have been working for Invisible Children for years, and I am grateful to them for all they’ve done for this cause, and to make it so easy for everyone to help out.
It is actually incredible the way Invisible Children have created something so modern and cohesive with today’s technologically saturated society - it makes me excited to get involved.
