We convinced her to report for MCB and she was running hard
but all good things come to an end and she had to head back to New Zealand.
She will be chiming in from time to time because we miss her!
I am back on MCB...What's Up Bitches?!
STOP! Listen to this song real quick:
May is New Zealand Music Month. So you have no idea how proud I am to be here writing about one of New Zealand's coolest bands! Here in New Zealand, The Black Seeds are a household name for anyone under 40 who doesn't live under a rock. They've been around for 12 years, and have just released their 5th album which is available worldwide!!
Dust And Dirt is the fifth studio album from our multi-platinum selling group whose unique brand of reggae-funk fusion has seen their fan base spread around the world in recent years.
Song Pippy Pip, also on Dust And Dirt, offered fans a rare opportunity to become part of The Black Seeds' history. By following instructions on a YouTube video, budding musicians were able to send in their own vocal samples. Most of the 90-odd entries can be heard, in some form, at the end of the track.
Check out the video here:
Now I know I'm here to talk about how awesome their new album 'DUST & DIRT' is... But hell, I want you all to start from the beginning!! These albums flew off the shelves here in nz when they were released.
'KEEP ON PUSHING' 2001
'ON THE SUN' 2004
'INTO THE DOJO' 2006
'SOLID GROUND' 2008
If you need more of a push to buy their music - Flight of The Conchords 'Bret Mckenzie' used to be a member for the first 5 years! Check out this cool video clip of the making of one of their earlier music videos - featuring 'Brit' himself:
The Black Seeds mix well with hot days, cold beers, good mates, road trips, parties, BBQ's, and when mixed well you get good times.
NOW PLEASE GO AND BUY THE BLACK SEEDS!!!!
Now if only I could get tickets to there Christchurch show later this month I'd be one happy chick....
MCB says they can get me an in person interview....and from my work in Detroit I believe them!
