Soul Kid Klik

Posted: 27 Dec 2008 11:00 AM CST

Soul Kid Klik, a hip-hop crew based in the Bronx, was formed in the early 90's. The members are G-Clef, Infamous, Blakspik, Goodfella Mike G, Storm the Ghetto Mutant, Malik Kahaar Ali, Skinslaya and DJ Spinbad. It all got started when original member G-Clef released an album with his group Ghetto Philharmonic (G-Clef, DJ Spinbad, B-Natural) in 1994. The album released by Tuff City was supposed to come out in 1993 but only came out late in 1994. After problems with Tuff City, Ghetto Philharmonic left the label. After G-Clef became managed by what was then known as GZA Entertainment, which was co-owned by GZA from the Wu-Tang Clan. G-Clef then started to promote his crew Soul Kid Klik. Their first 12" release was "Mortal Kombat" which came out in 1995. It became a minor hit and got spun on underground radio shows. They would release one more 12" single but after problems with GZA, Jay "Wax" Garfield, and even the group, they would eventually disband and abort their album. Only SKK member, Goodfella Mike G, was able to release a solo album in 1996 before the breakup. It's a dark, and raw album that was done by a "real" Sicilian mafioso. In 2002, G-Clef was able re-release all the SKK tracks(demos, unreleased, 12") into one CD. In my opinion, it's an underground classic! Just hardcore, raw, and real!

Everything That Happens Will Happen Today

Everything That Happens Will Happen Today David Byrne and Brian Eno retreated to pop's periphery years ago, but their influence is suddenly front and center. There are echoes of Byrne's old band, Talking Heads, in the avant-funk of LCD Soundsystem and other dance-rock bands, and you can hear the singer's workaday hysteria in the cadences of Arcade Fire's Win Butler and Modest Mouse's Isaac

Rascal Flatts' just scored their 9th number one country single on Thursday. In honor of their achievement, I put together a playlist with all of their official music videos. There are 19 videos in the playlist, and you can watch them all in the video below. It's amazing how different the guys look now compared to their first few videos. Joe Don especially. He actually resembles Justin Timberlake in their first couple of videos. Enjoy!

The Delicious - The Delicious The Delicious

Posted: 26 Dec 2008 09:15 AM CST

I'm getting tired of bands like The Delicious. They're solid players, they write strong songs and they manage to fuse a diverse variety of influences into their own unique sound; what bugs me is that all they seem to want to do is goof around. Of course, it's no crime in rock to have fun and goof off and many would even argue that that's the essence and genius of rock. The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Who and scores of other bands that established the form and function of rock as we know it were known to goof off and have a good time with their music. So what's wrong with The Delicious goofing off a bit?

The difference between the aforementioned and The Delicious is the difference between a Judd Apatow movie and other contemporary comedy movies. Like Apatow, all the aforementioned bands knew that comedy and fun and such were just as much a part of life as pain, sadness, love, hatred, etc. and they combined them in equal measure in their music (just as Judd Apatow combines all the above in his films) to end up with something that feels multidimensional and thereby represents the multidimensional personality (or personalities) behind it. On their debut album, The Delicious arrive and depart without ever having revealed any depth of personality…not even in the song about corn syrup, aptly titled, "Corn Syrup".

Really though, that's just their shtick, and The Delicious The Delicious isn't so bad. I'm sure the band will have no problem attracting a demographic that isn't looking for the meaning of life in their iPods. Their songs are quite strong and from start to finish, The Delicious The Delicious is an enjoyable romp through various styles and genres that shows a talented band having a killer time making an album.

It's not hard to imagine plenty of people getting a kick out of the Weezer-like "Dearest Duchess" or the Starvin' Hungry-esque "Every Other Night". And when there's harmonica solos coming out of both channels on the folk-joke song "Math", it's easy to just sit back and enjoy the band's zeal. The Delicious The Delicious is a fun album that's well written and put together, but like a quick snack, it's enjoyable while it lasts, and then it's gone and forgotten.
