Extra Golden – Ok-Oyot System
May 12th, 2011 by lo-budge

YouTube – Extra Golden – Ok-Oyot System.

From Chris:

Happy Birthday to the golden child, Gregory!
I picked this band to post today because they share a surname with Greg and they are an awesome blend of Afropop and rock. The band hails from Chicago and Kenya. They wrote a song called “Obama” before he was prez, in honor of then Senator Obama’s assistance in securing US visas for the kenyan band mates.
These dudes were doing indy-rock afropop waaaaay before Vampire Weekend!

PS: Next year’s posting for Greg’s birthday is going to be the video from his 16th birthday party. And that’s a promise.

Echo & The Bunnymen – The Killing Moon
May 5th, 2011 by lo-budge

YouTube – Echo & The Bunnymen – The Killing Moon [Music Video].

I have been absolutely swamped at my job and other obligations lately, and there is no end in sight, thus the sporadic video posting.  I hope Chris continues to send me stuff on Fridays, but anyone who wants to post something here can just e-mail me a link to an embeddable video with their comments on it and I’ll happily post it as I have had no time to do this lately.

One day I’ll get more involved in this site again – there’s still some stuff I need to archive.

Anyway, this song came on yesterday afternoon when I went with my co-workers to a “team building” exercise at a bowling alley in Bellevue.  The hodge-podge of music that was playing on the PA while we were bowling was hilarious, and this song was one of them.  Why did this corporate chain of bowling establishments have this particular song in their rotation? I wish I could have seen the CD collection they were pulling from.  This song was sort of a fluke compared to the rest of the tripe that was being played.
