Hola Personas,

Check out the latest Miike Snow video “The Wave” from their new album Happy To You.  This highly anticipated sophomore full-length hit cyberstores this week (March 13th).  The eclectic trio is currently supporting it by kicking off their road trip and rocking live at SXSW in Austin, TX.  Swedish director Andreas Nilsson gets apocalyptic in theme on this one.  You can catch them on St. Patty’s Day in Vegas, or peep a local show in your town as they tour North America beginning this month.

WZRD: Teleport 2 me (Live on Conan)

Whatitdo Wurld,

Well, this is rather interesting.  WZRD (Kid Cudi, and Dot Da Genius’ group project) has finally released their long player about a week ago.  As some of you “Cudder” fans may know, the critics are not being too kind.  There are some great moments on this album, in which the single Teleport 2 Me is definitely one of them.  However, most of it is a bit “experimental” to say the least (due to Cudi’s freshman-like rock guitar prowess). Lots of press has been released about Cudi being upset w/ his label for treating the group as a “side project” and not distributing it as a “real release”.  Well, it’s definitely made it’s mark on Billboard charts already. Here at SwitchFlip, we think it was a good effort and await to see how the live performances are received.  We were not disappointed with their recent live rendition of the single on Conan O’Brien.  Actually, Cudi’s delivery and stage presence really captured the essence of the song and the band’s concept.  Pleasantly surprised, “Teleport 2 Me” is now #SwitchFlip Certified.   What do you think?

French Montana: Shot Caller ft. Diddy & Rick Ross (Remix)

Whatitdo Party Peeps,

You wanna be a Baller? Shot Caller…

Leave the rest to French Montana, Diddy & Ricky Rozay!  Finally the new official signee to Bad Boy Records puts out a video that gets it really poppin’ on his own cut by placing the big dawgs in “reverse rolls” as featured guests.  Montana’s been everywhere as a featured artist for a few years. It will be interesting to see what he brings as a “real debut release” via the Diddy Bop!  We guess his new deal IS sweeter than Peach Ciroc…
