Blitz the Ambassador - Native Sun (full album film)

MusicLoad.Com presents Blitz The Ambassador - Native Sun

Blitz The Ambasador should be a top contender for the Artist of the Year award for his fantastic rap and lyrical abilities, seriously grooving music and outstanding ability to create captivating music video presentations. Even if one is not a big hip hop fan, most will appreciate his music as it weaves through numerous genres of jazz, funk, soul, reggae and other hybrid feels. The entire album was turned into a video that is a journey of messages that goes beyond the lyrics. A must see! Enjoy :) GC

Little Columbus - Warsong

Posted by Gregory Chamberlain

A Canadian artist known as Little Columbus delivered a excellent raw webcam style recording of an original song he wrote entitled Warsong. Anyone who is willing to question a war is all right by me.

Blodwyn Pig - See My Way

Posted by Gregory J. Chamberlain

Never really knew much about the band Blodwyn Pig, or the Jethro Tull connection, until reading Bob Leftsetz' blog post the other day. According to a note sent to Bob following his post from George Varga, Pop Music Critic for the San Diego Union-Tribune, this Blodwyn Pig song below was one of the most popular songs in Germany where he grew up. This video is from Beat-Club, a German music television program that ran from September 1965 to December 1972. Enjoy!

On a Balcony in Turkey: ON YOUR HORIZON

Posted by Gregory J. Chamberlain

Amongst my favorite sources of great emerging talent in cities around the globe is from an Irish lad named Stephen O'Regan and his Balcony TV, where songwriters, bands and solo artists take to a balcony for a live and usually acoustic/unplugged performance.

Here is a tasty group, On Your Horizon, performing on a beautiful balcony with a serene view in the country of Turkey. When a dog starts barking in the background, it seems to go with the music! Enjoy!

Songwriters at work: Morgan Cameron Ross and Robyn Dell'unto

Posted by Gregory J. Chamberlain

I always enjoy going to writers in the round sessions to see and hear songwriters take turns playing their songs, unplugged style with their acoustic guitars. Here is Morgan Cameron Ross and Robyn Dell' who had just written this little ditty and did a quick recording of the tune in a grainy audio and video form that is like a nice cup of organic tea. Enjoy!



First heard of Morgan Cameron Ross back in April 2011, when Morgan made a video from Tahrir Square in Egypt as the uprising against Mubarak was underway. Wrote about him and featured his Tahrir video and some of his work here: http://blog.musicload.com/2011/04/morgan-cameron-ross-also-of-birds-of.html

NNEKA - Soul Is Heavy

Posted by Gregory J. Chamberlain

This is Nneka's latest video released ahead of her upcoming album Soul Is Heavy.



Nneka is a artist I discovered back in early 2009 and I fell in love with her powerful activist sound that made her stand out in my mind as sort of a female Bob Marley. She has a lot of courage to sing and talk about what she does. Her lyrics often start off in what seem to be love songs, only to get heavily political.

The Perverted Hymns

Posted by Gregory J. Chamberlain

I received the following e-mail from the member of a rocking band:

My name is Ryuji Kanno and I play bass for a NYC based hard rock band called "The Perverted Hymns".

It would be great if you could consider linking us or doing a review of our first album, "Book One: Caught In The Fix".
(letter continues below video)



(the letter continued)
Our songs can be streamed at the link below: http://www.thepervertedhymns.com

The vibe of the band - ranging from hard rock to a softer melody, subject matters from warfare to personal loss. I hope you like what you hear.

The Perverted Hymns: Vocals/Guitar: W.H. Willy, Guitar: Chris Kane, Bass/Guitar: Ryuji Kanno, Drums: Clevio.

We began playing in 2010. We have gigged through out the Lower East
Side of Manhattan and Brooklyn - we are looking to expand our gigging and tour in 2012. We are also working on our second album.

Thank you for your time.
Sincerely,

Ryuji Kanno

Emil Inc. - Man On The Throne

Posted by Gregory J. Chamberlain

Always digging for patriotic/subversive political music and feel there needs to be more of it. Revolutions do not exist without songs that mean something.

Song by Emil Inc, with strong political message.


Lyrics:
Man on the throne
Man on the throne
We are not together
I'd rather stay alone
And when you will decide
To stop smoking cigarettes
Don't count on me
Man on the throne

I'm sitting in my house
Safe and relaxed
When danger comes around
I'll pull the trigger fast
So, when you will decide
To take my guns away
Don't count on me
Man on the throne

The sun will rise
It always will appear
The blue sky will be above us another million years
There is freedom in the air
There is freedom in our minds
Just back off for good
Man on the throne

Freeloaders are a threat!!!
They think that it's their turn
To take without a sweat
Everything I earned
So, when you will decide
For me to share my wealth
Don't count on me
Man on the throne

Absurdity and craziness
Are turning men to fools
Stupidity and laziness
Now are making rules
And when you will decide
For me to pay the price
Don't count on me
Man on the throne

The sun will rise
It always will appear
The blue sky will be above us another million years
There is freedom in the air
There is freedom in our minds
Just back off for good
Man on the throne

Man on the throne
Man on the throne
We are not together
You will end up alone
And when you will decide
For me to save the world
Don't count on me
Man on the throne

Nitin Sawhney

I found this first song titled Sunset without seeing the video and really loved it. I danced in my socks. I like to turn it up and almost everything decent sounds great when I do, because that's what great sound systems do, they sound great!... but anyways... As I looked into the artist, Nitin Sawhney, I discovered he is one of the world's biggest music collaborators, contributing to and putting out music with multitudes of different vocalists and side men, in multiple languages. The vast world of music never stops refreshing. GC
