THE MYNABIRDS, NAS + SNAPPED ANKLES

Sorry it’s been a while, June was super hectic and yes I’ve been a bit slack and to be honest not that much has been grabbing me until the last few days. I’m not going to blog just for the sake of it, now there’s some decent New Music seducing my ears let’s talk about it.

I annoy myself let alone any music loving feminists who happen to be reading when I refer to the looks of an artist, yet sex, certainly sexual attraction is part of the power of music, THE MYNABIRDS look hot, deal with it. And their track ‘Generals’ is hot in its own right independent of the aesthetic appeal of the individuals bringing it into being.

I’m enjoying the relaxed, soulful vibes of NAS’s new single ‘Daughters’, also enjoying a HipHop track that far from featuring the far too regular misogynistic  (I do realise the irony of taking a stand after my previous track) ‘I’m going to bend you over and you’ll love it la la la’ rantings actually appears to be a half sex ed/ half personal development ode to the unique human dynamic that is the father-daughter relationship.

SNAPPED ANKLES win immediate Brand Nu Points for having a great name, of course the whole ‘I love that name’ sensation is normally followed by musical disappointment, wishing the artist had applied similar vigour to their track creation as their name creation. Not the case with SA, their song ‘I Want My Minutes’ back is totally ace and I make no apologies for sounding like I’m blogging in 1987, ok? Super duper.
