WATCH — Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet – Part 9 (Featuring P.O.S)

February 2nd, 2017

Within Marvel Comics’ Black Panther, written by The Atlantic national correspondent and National Book Award winner, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Black Panther’s sister Shuri is reborn anew… New powers, a new codename and a new target: the Midnight Angels. The newly independent Dora Milaje make their final accord with Tetu and The People… T’Challa takes an audience with the voice of dissent, Changamire. But will both men finally listen to reason?

Continuing the excitement surrounding Marvel’s celebrated Super Hero T’Challa, the Black Panther, the latest episode of this revolutionary multi-artist hip-hop-inspired video series samples “Born A Snake” from Doomtree’s P.O.S.

WATCH — Sylvan Esso “Kick Jump Twist”

February 1st, 2017

“Recently, Sylvan Esso performed “Radio”, their first proper single in years, on The Tonight Show. This week, Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn are showing some love to the track’s B-side, “Kick Jump Twist”, by releasing a new music video.

Directed by Mimi Cave, known for her work on Danny Brown’s “When It Rain” and tUnEyArDs’ “Bizness”, the clip follows dancer Gary Reagan as he works through a feverish routine. As it was filmed just days after Donald Trump won the Electoral College — emphasis: not the American vote — one can’t help but find catharsis in Reagan’s pointed moves.”

LISTEN — Cilantro Jukebox “Love For Money”

February 1st, 2017

Drawing from diverse musical backgrounds, Austin’s Cilantro Boombox creates an energetic, positive vibe that flows from the dance floor to the soul. Initially a casual collaboration between bassist Félix Pacheco and saxophonist Joe Woullard (of Black Joe Lewis and Ocote Soul Sounds), the duo blossomed into a working unit with the addition of Andres Villegas (Guitar, vocals) and Christopher “Zumbi” Richards (Trombone, Vocals). Subsequently bolstered by Joshua Thomson (alto sax), Micah Shalom (trumpet), Jason Murdy (percussion), and Greg Clifford (drums), Cilantro’s explosive sound merges elements of Latin, Pan-African, brass bands, and electronic musics in a unique flavor as bold as its namesake.

The band’s eponymous, 11-track debut album was self-released in 2012, followed by the single, “Fears Away,” in 2014. Every song, chord, and lyric of Cilantro Boombox’s repertoire lifts the crowd up; their contagious energy is hard to surpass, even amidst the worthy, diverse competition of the Austin live music scene.
