Tanlines: All Of Me x Brothers

Happy Friday Earthlings,

Here’s the latest single from Tanlines entitled “All Of Me“.  We added “Brothers” as well, so you get to know this new Indie/Experimental Rock Duo.  The Brooklyn Duo’s debut album Mixed Emotions was release this week (March 20, 2012).  They’ve been touring the U.S. and Europe w/ big acts such as Julian Casablancas (The Strokes ) and Delorean.  Peep’em and let us know what you think!

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?

St. Lucia: We Got It Wrong

Wussdascience Wurld,

Jean-Philip Grobler (aka St. Lucia) has officially signed to Neon Gold Records!  The South African Native definitely has his own distinct take on dance music.  After “coming of age” in the UK and NYC, the Brooklynite is about to drop his debut EP later this month.  The vocalist-producer-instrumentalist has been treacherously remixing for the likes of Club Feet, Charlie XCX and even Foster The People.  Riding a high from St. Lucia’s residency at Pianos last month, we are keeping an eye out on new releases as he builds his blend of upbeat African rhythms and futuristic electro-synth wall of sound.  Click the first image below for his official “We Got It Wrong” video release.  We’ve also included a remix version below (it’s cool to see a remix producer get his own songs remixed).  #SwitchFlip Certified fo shizzle, my nizzles.

M.I.A. : Bad Girls

Happy Friday Earthlings,

Here’s the new long-awaited single from M.I.A Riding the controversial coattails of her  Super Bowl XLVI halftime performance featuring Madonna, M.I.A. finds herself with another catchy chart topper.  The video rolls action packed with clever stunts and neo-middle eastern swagger.  Oh by the way, if you haven’t heard, Madonna isn’t too happy about the M.I.A. incident now known as “Fingergate“.  The Material Girl accepted her apology, but officially stated that M.I.A’s actions went against the positive unified energy of the performance.  The NFL will pass the network fine along to M.I.A.  We smell a publicity stunt, as her single just dropped the week of the Big Game…whatcha think?
