New Music: I.R.O.K.

It took me a couple of minutes to get in to this, but as it turns out I’ve decided it’s my track of the week. I would describe this as N*E*R*D on steroids. Check out here.

 

Take a jazz singer and let him have a go on Azealia Banks’ ‘212’

Jamie cullum did it first years ago with his cover of ‘Frontin’ by N*E*R*D, and it hasn’t really been done since. Then I see this cover by Wouter Hamel, a Dutch jazz/pop crossover artist. It felt  a bit wrong but it comes out good in the end. I think…

Live: N*E*R*D and The Hoosiers at the Album Chart Show

Just came back from this TV recording of the Album Chart Show for Channel 4, being filmed at Koko in London. Playing tonight were N*E*R*D, The Hoosiers, The Klaxons and The Script- but we only stayed for the first two (I’m not a huge fan of Klaxons or Script, and we had to wait something like 15 minutes between the sets so we just got old and went home instead). Check out the pics from the night on my Flickr right now. We were right at the front -thanks N*E*R*D for winning us some tickets! The Hoosiers were pretty good, but Pharrell and N*E*R*D were OUT OF THIS WORLD! You have to go see these dudes out when they hit a town near you.
