It's possible that Beyoncé should have won over Beck, but it's definite that Beck should have performed instead of Kanye.

As a newly independent musician I really appreciate this discussion and sensitivity on hand regarding this modern conundrum. Here's my two cents. Let's say there was a band that was willing to shamelessly self promote and capitalize on the feelings of good will towards musicians in the hopes that it would make them a few bucks in exchange for some sense of self worth. i.e. they went on a popular music blog and created a discount code pandering to it's sister site that would save readers 15% off the download of that band's latest outstanding release. Sort of an in joke code to be entered at checkout valid through xmas, we'll call the code "facetaco". If, for example, the band's bandcamp store was located at www.ilovedeleon.bandcamp.com, do you think the other commenters would take advantage of the amazing deal and download the album? This hypothetical thought exercise is the kind of thing band's do and/or need to think about a lot these days. Major labels used to sign a lot of bands in the hopes that one would get big. Indie musicians need to try a lot of different stuff in the hopes that they can buy lunch.

Sure is! Classic Andre verse. Slim performed it every night of that tour, and every night of that tour I ate it right up. One time he asked me if I had rubbers. Blush.

Here's my album review: 10 years ago I was in a band that was touring with Outkast. One night while passing their bus Big Boi leaned out the window and said "sup playa, wanna smoke good?" I replied "yes, yes I would like that, thanks." I proceeded to smoke great with the likes of Big Boi, Slim Cutta Calhoun et al. This album gets 5 out of 5 stars.

I'm sick and tired of people missing perfectly good opportunities to use the word 'defenestration'.

The new DeLeon video is suuuper beautiful. I recommend it if you like Mexican countrysides and epic journey videos. http://youtu.be/ngAU9xykXcU

I'd like this album a lot more if I'd never heard ATLiens.

I'd like to watch this but I live in Mexico. Will someone mail it to me? In fact, will someone just mail me the internet? Thanks!

Chuck has officially busted loose from his physical constraints but the groove and all night party he pioneered continue to rage on. Like Jim, I'm from DC and grew up on go-go. Chuck is a legend where we're from and the city mourns his passing.

Srsly. Anna Calvi should not be ignored. Nor should DeLeon for that matter. Take another listen to their album Casata from this year and get back to me.
