Culture
[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Hello, I'm Kurt Wolf from Download Music, and welcome to the brand new Cross Fade TV. It's actually the same music show that you've known and loved for a while now, but we've come up with a new name to coincide with our brand new music blog, Cross Fade. You can find the blog on our site, music.download.com. Now my pick this week is the new album from Devendra Banhart called Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon. ^M00:00:27 [ Music ] ^M00:00:32 >> Devendra is known as the figurehead of the so-called "freak folk" scene. But these days his music is still slow and dreamy, but it's also a lot more electronic and psychedelic. Check out the song we have for download called Seahorse. ^M00:00:45 [ Music ]^M00:00:52 >> The song is 8 minutes long, and it builds from a quiet intro into a full-on tripped out guitar extravaganza. ^M00:01:00 [ Music ] ^M00:01:06 >> It's going to take a while to unravel everything he's saying and everything that's going on under the surface here. Still, I think Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon is well worth checking out. >> Hey, this is Peter Gavin and my pick this week is Iron and Wine. He has a new album out called the Shepherd's Dog, and one of the stand-out tracks is called Innocent Bones. ^M00:01:23 [ Music ] ^M00:01:27 >> He's definitely evolved past his low-five four-track days, but Sam Beam's [assumed spelling] whisper-like vocals are still the focus. There's a lot of interesting percussion and guitar overdubs on this album. Check out the single Boy With a Coin. ^M00:01:39 [ Music ] ^M00:01:46 >> We have these two tracks from the Shepherd's Dog plus from other downloads from his previous albums. So take a listen by searching for Iron and Wine on music.download.com. [ Music ] >> Hey, this is Mike Tao, and my pick for this week is Percy P's [assumed spelling] Perseverance on Stone's Throw Records. ^M00:02:02 [ Music ] ^M00:02:06 >> Percy is best known in the late '80s for his innovative fast rap technique -- ^M00:02:12 [ Music ] ^M00:02:14 >> After 15 plus years of waiting, his first solo album is finally in stores now thanks to Stone's Throw Records. ^M00:02:23 [ Music ]^M00:02:30 >> The production was handled entirely by Mad Lib [assumed spelling], so you know the beats are going to be sick. Check out Watch Your Step, which is the first single on our site right now. ^M00:02:40 [ Music ] ^M00:02:46 >> And if you still can't get enough of Percy P you can download his music session podcast interview at studioc.cnet.com. ^M00:02:56 [ Music ]
