“8 people with 5 instruments from 4 Continents speaking 3 languages for 1 song.” – Cain Masni
That is the simple way to describe Jam Session 2.0. More difficult than getting everyone on board and doing it? Actually creating a great song that you want to listen to and not have it be just something cool that a few musicians threw together for fun. I can listen to this song and not know that it didn’t come from an album and was completely created online using the everyday communication tools that we all use.
The brainchild of Brian at Cain Mosni, he had this to say about the virtual jam session:
We put together a virtual “jam session” with musicians from all over the world! Music was inspired by Galt MacDermot’s amazing “Coffee Cold”. Handsome Boy Modeling School (Prince Paul and Dan the Automator) flipped that song with J-Live and Roisin Murphy from Moloko and called it “The Truth”.
Now that you know what went into this, check out the video or you can listen to the song below. I’ve also included the lyrics as well as the links for everyone who participated in this musical collaboration.

The infamous DJ Earworm has done it again! This famous mashup artist has taken the “Top 25 Billboard Hits of 2009″ and made one super-fucking-duper mashup of all of them! DJ Earworm attempted (and accomplished) this feat last year and has once again done what most mashup artists only wish they could.
If you love mashups as much as I do, then bask in the goodness of United State of Pop 2009 (Blame It on the Pop). With 25 songs clocking in a 4 minutes and 37 seconds, this mashup is another stunning example of how talented DJ Earworm is. I’ve included the track to listen to, the official mashup video, as well as the link to download the song. Here’s a nice farewell to 2009 and I’m looking forward to what DJ Earworm has in store for us in 2010!

I absolutely LOVE the animated music video for the song Hey by the alternative Israeli band Eatliz. The 3D video is described as a “Sci-Fi Fantasy journey of a little girl with a special pet friend, a huge toad. Once the girl loses her pet, which drifts in the sky in a form of a balloon, she is going through different adventurous scenarios by chasing it.”
Not only should the video be considered art, you should definitely check out this band. Be sure to visit the official website and if you register for their mailing list, you get freebies. How nice is that?!
Now watch the video and fall in love with gorgeous animation and Eatliz.
My name is April and I’m an addict. My drug of choice is music. Just saying the word music makes my stomach feel all tingly like I have butterflies in there. From the time I wake up in the morning, to the time I go to sleep, I live for music. I can always be found listening to something new I found or a classic that is timeless. It all sounds the same to me and I just can’t help swayin’ to the groove.
I think my love affair with music started when I was a young child. I was born in 1980, back when MTV was still a fledgling network and didn’t have us begging for our MTV quite yet. 1980 was a sad year for music lovers everywhere, as John Lennon was assassinated in December of that year. I don’t remember that, but when I think about how much he brought to the world with his music and words of peace and love that I can only imagine the pain of losing someone so special. I only have John’s music to listen to but it fills me with a sense of him, as if listening to his music keeps him alive and makes me feel a personal connection with him. I’d like to think that anyways.
I know this video has been online for a bit now, but since I was neglecting my blog I never posted it. I think it deserves to be added, so here it is in all it’s jizzy glory. Cheers!
It’s awesome in HD! If you want to see it in HD, click the link for the video to watch it on vimeo, or just click here.
