Chan Marshall is the definition of a true “indie-rock” rock star, —the mercurial singer-songwriter A.K.A. Cat Power.
Born in Atlanta, Marshall first emerged with her debut album, Dear Sir (1995), during the golden age of the mid- ’90s Alternative Nation. I guess we were all alternative; since life seem to flow as opposed to stop and go and everyone or most every one seem to have a project or something worthwhile to do, and the World seemed to be turning an auspicious corner…then came the rest… Continue reading “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” »

Havana Brown is a Melbourne based DJ. She came to the profession almost by default, while living in London and pursing a career as a musician, once the band she was a part of broke up she took refuge within London’s booming club scene but was not that impressed with the DJ’ing she found there; I wanted them to play music I wanted to hear, music people could dance to. As Fast as you can say good luck in your new bed she was back in OZ with a driving ambition to pursue a life behind the decks. It was a struggle at first: you know it’s like getting into the boys locker room wanting to play football…and as I started getting gigs the playback was well she is a girl and she is hot!

They gave me the music and with no budget, no time, and no resources I was promptly asked by a kind producer at a record label to come up with something. He gave me a new artist (Bee-Bop) and three of her tracks to mashup, and my friends (most of whom have never done anything in video before) ran into the woods in 30F-40F foggy weather and came up with this on the spot without even a damn script lol. It was a very fun, challenging weekend. Continue reading “The Doll Lab: Be Bop-licious” »
