SXSW

SXSW has come majestically swinging around yet another year.

If you didn’t know, SXSW is 2 weeks of an incredible combo of music, film, and technology usually held in Austin, TX. A realm of discovery on many levels, SXSW helps artists and creators grow personally and professionally.

Obviously, the women of TCIR are missing out but we’ll work it out for next year.

SO MANY ARTISTS that I don’t even want to being naming in fear that I may forget some.

THERE are still a couple days left, if you can make one of their 5,000+ events, go for it.

Head over to SXSW.com for the schedule!

Luckily, the good people at Forbes gives us some insight on how to enjoy SXSW from afar!

PreOrder Ready – Neil Gaiman

Finally got the email I was waiting for, you can PreOrder signed copies of The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman through B&N. The pre-order for signed copies is of course, until supplies last and non signed books will be available as well.

I can’t wait to see what tale of wonder Mr. Gaiman weaves for us with this book.

I first fell in love with Kevin Michael’s sultry FUNK after hearing his self-titled Debut LP from 2007 (which I still have in my present day rotation).

Since then, he hasn’t been distributing from a major label standpoint BUT he has been delivering quite the bit of sexual, futuristic sounds since!

Here’s his recent project, “B R A I N W A $ H”! Download (name your price) & Give it a listen!

Leave your thoughts on this body of work below!

Anticipating Eargasms in 2013 from…

  • Jessie J – This SUPER vocalist has enlisted Sia & Diane Warren for her Sophomore project set to be released later this year. Sounds like brilliance already…
  • Mali Music- Gospel Beast Mali Music has finally announced Feb. 13th as the day for his OFFICIAL single entitled, “Ready Aim” from his highly anticipated sophomore project (TBA) to drop.
  • Bridget Kelly- Her single “Special Delivery” & “In the Morning” ft. Meek Mill has me wanting more from this Brooklyn-bred talent signed to Roc Nation!
  • Jhene Aiko- Don’t have to say much about this songstress, I am here for her when she decides to release her next body of work & I’m PRAYING that it’s this year because I have worn “Sailing Soul(s) out.

My personal list goes on for decades but I just left you all with a few to dive into (&youtube)!
