Culture
[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Hey, welcome to Crossfade TV, I'm Anngie DeHoyos and these are our picks taken straight from our site music.download.com. My pick for this week is the most addictive collaborations to merge in the last two years. They go by the name Gnarls Barkley. They're kicking off the New Year with the new single called Run. ^M00:00:21 [ Music ] ^M00:00:26 >> The project Gnarls Barkley consists of rapper and singer Cee-lo Green and producer Brian Burton, also known as Danger Mouse. They made it big with their debut record St. Elsewhere and something tells me they might be able to do it again. After listening to the old school soul samples found in Run. ^M00:00:42 [ Music ] ^M00:00:49 >> The album suitably called Odd Couple is set for release in April. Until then, warm up with Run plus the classic hits that bloat the careers of this odd couple. Just be sure to visit music.download.com and search for Gnarls Barkley. >> Hey this is Kurt and my pick this week is U.K. guitarist James Blackshaw. His most recent album is called The Cloud of Unknowing. ^M00:01:09 [ Music ] ^M00:01:12 >> Blackshaw plays 12-string guitar instrumentals and the tradition of fingerpicking legends like John Fahey, Leo Kottke and Robbie Bashaw. You can hear what I mean on the song Running to the Ghost. ^M00:01:21 [ Music ] ^M00:01:26 >> We also have a second Blackshaw song on the site called Spiralling Skeleton Memorial, which is from an album paying tribute to another acoustic guitar great Peter Walker. ^M00:01:35 [ Music ] ^M00:01:41 >> The Cloud of Unknowing came out 2007 and Blackshaw has been touring lately to support it. He is amazing Live and I highly recommend catching him if you can. >> Hey, this is Mike Tao and my pick for this week is Boston's emcee Akrobatik who's about to drop his latest album Absolute Value on fat moves. ^M00:01:57 [ Music ] ^M00:02:01 >> Now, Ak has made some noise throughout the years as a solo artist in the indie hip-hop scene with the [inaudible] released is on Detonator, Rawkus included to our records. ^M00:02:10 [ Music ] ^M00:02:13 >> His first single Put Ya Stamp On It from his Sophomore album features hip-hop vet Talib Kweli, trading flaws that were [inaudible] track from late great J-Dilla. ^M00:02:22 [ Music ] ^M00:02:27 >> The rest of the album style were collaborations from heavy weights like Little Brother, Bumpy Knuckles, Chuck D and B-Real. And if you like what you hear, check out Ak's group The Perceptionists on our site as well. ^M00:02:38 [ Music ]
