Cree Summer

One of those great timeless songs that never really got heard, yet, by one of those extraordinary talents who is still a little bit too obscure. Cree Summer is badass. This video is more than a video.... it's work of art. Enjoy! GC

Radio Radio - Guess What?

The Indies presents the music of Radio Radio

They sing and rap in French and English. At first I assumed that this act off the Bonsound imprint called Radio Radio was out of Europe, but it turns out they are Canadian.

The beat at the beginning of this first track, below, bored me from the get go and I just about clicked to another song. But then the lyrics start: "She makes more money than me, she drives a better car than me... I eye ... just wanna cry eye". This song made me laugh many times and served as long overdue morning laugh therapy. As I heard more of this unique and interesting project, the music really grew on me. And so did the seriously excellent film making. Enjoy. GC

Radio Radio - Guess What?

The above video, Guess What?, was directed by the talented director of photography, Jonathan Bensimon. It was produced by Cherie Sinclair/Sarah Siddons/The Field. The colorist/SR. Flame was Daniel J. Kelly and JR. Flame was Nicolas Pellicelli. The Editor was Geoff Ashenhurst. Post Production by Motor/Flame Artist with Post Producer Catherine St-Hilaire.

This next track is strange... Feels like some sort of suspended reality, like being put to sleep on drugs in the hospital. The video is strange... Strange is good. I like it.

This next video is far out and the track itself is great, even though I have no idea what they are saying in French, yet. I'm digging the groove and the flow of the rap.

The Mowgli's

When thinking of San Francisco, some think of Bill Graham days, or modern day things like the band Train which emerged from there. Now there is The Mowgli's with their song titled San Francisco. Thanks to Ryan for the tip.... can't remember Ryan's last name... darned beerzheimers.

The artist out of Spain known as Bigott might know how to push some people's buttons with song titles like "God Is Gay" and songs like Cannibal Dinner, espcially after the lunatic man ate off the face of the homeless man in Miami, Florida.

Democracy Now! - The Ultimate Indie

Posted by Gregory J. Chamberlain

As I listen to Democracy Now! I am always amazed by their real organic depth. Run out of a old historic firehouse in New York City, this hard hitting real news show connects with sources and voices on the ground, around the world including some of the hottest burning war zones in the world. And, on the streets of their own neighborhood, they devoted much time today to the problem of stop & frisk stops in New York. Even if you don't live in New York, one realizes that America is a place where racial profiling not only exists, but is the norm where the Mayor thinks it's something to be proud of. Are we really free under these conditions? Should we, the people, tolerate such a police state? Democracy Now! thinks not and it fights the fight through exposing voices of reason and action.

They spent a big part of today covering the so called "War on Drugs" with a long speech by a activist that broke down the realities of what the "war on drugs" really is and how it's tied to mass incarceration and the prison business, which became a growth industry.

If you believe in real freedom, true peace, equality and justice for the downtrodden, you'll love watching or listening to Democracy Now!

In my particular case, I admire and cherish Democracy Now! for it's pro peace, anti-police state stance. Sure, they lean in a certain direction when they dig for sources, the opposite direction of the mainstream media, but they dig for the truth and I consider them to be trustworthy on these issues.

On certain issues, such as immigration, Democracy Now! stands solid with those who are considered "illegal" by many. And so I may not lean with the way Democracy Now! leans on issues such as illegal immigration, however, they share voices of real people who are victims. And, when I consider how flawed U.S. Government policy is in terms of actually protecting our boarders, vs. policing boarders of countries in far away lands, instead of focusing on our's here at home, I must say, hearing the other side that Democracy Now! has become a valuable tool in evaluating the side of the news that is rarely, if ever reported.

Democracy Now! airs Monday - Friday at 9AM Eastern Time/6AM Pacific Time and is posted online shortly afterward and all shows are archived and easy to view, going back years. To find a TV or radio station that airs Democracy Now! or to view the daily one hour stream and archives, visit DemocracyNow.Org
