Murs & 9th Wonder: I Used to Love Her (Again)

Directed by Jon Maztck. From the Murs & 9th Wonder album Fornever.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis: My Oh My

"Dave Niehaus was not only the voice of the Seattle Mariners, he was the voice of my childhood. Some of my most prized memories, growing up as a kid, are accompanied with his voice narrating the moment. He was more than just another radio announcer. His on-air personality was so genuine, that you had a sense who the man was and what he stood for, by simply listening to him call a game.

I understand that people might not know Niehaus. A large portion of my fan base either lives outside of the Northwest, are too young to have listened to him, or just not a fan of baseball. I get it. But I believe that as musicians, it’s our responsibility to pay homage to the people that made us who we are. For me, Niehaus was an imperative part of not only my upbringing, but of Seattle’s unique history and culture. From his signature “My oh my” catch phrase, to the heart and passion that exuded from the radio, his presence will be greatly missed by the community. And for those of you outside of the area, hopefully you’ll listen and get a glimpse of not only a Town legend, but one of the greatest announcers to ever have ever called a game."

One of my current favorites. Such an amazing song. I had no idea this was a cover (originally by The Source ft. Candi Station). A year and a day ago they posted this video so i figured I'd re-post it on here.

Aloe Blacc: You Make Me Smile x Use Me (A Tack Away Show)

These Take Away Shows that La Blogotheque do are so dope! Aloe Blacc has an amazing voice! The old school camera lens used while shooting this (at least that's what it looks like they used) goes perfectly with his sound and voice. I love the concept of bringing music like this to a public place. This whole video makes me smile. The Bill Withers cover at the end is the cherry on top.
