Beastly Bits #24

It's been dubbed "snowpocalypse", "armasleddon", and plenty of snOMG's have been thrown around...but I like to think of yesterday as a much needed break from our daily technological grind. Sure, we did a bit of work, chatted with a super rad dude for an interview to be featured later this month, and ultimately watched more seasons of TV on DVD than we could have asked for, but now it's time to get back up to speed.

To rectify our absenteeism yesterday, there's a ton of really great info below. Like a ton. A verifiable snow drift of songs and stuff. I went there.

Talk about overcoming odds! Brooklyn band, Ambassadors, are hitting Santos with a comeback show on February 18, after their keyboardist, Casey Harris, went through kidney transplant surgery. Also, Harris has been legally blind (90% vision loss) since birth. Go ahead and complain about your life now. I'll wait.

Introducing: Tinashé

Being hailed as a "next big thing" would scare the heck out of me. On one hand, it's pretty rad to be considered as "ready to break out", but on the other, that's a whole ton of pressure. One cat, who's got his stuff together, while being lauded as a lad-to-listen-to is London cum Zimbabwean, Tinashé.


Tinashe

A brief intro, from the man himself, then we'll dive into the goodies.

I was originally shipped over from Zimbabwe so I could eventually grow to become a doctor/lawyer and wire money back home via Western Union. That didn't go so well...I blame/thank MJ. I smiled & nodded to avoid bullying over my African accent at school until the Eastenders elocution lessons started to pay off... I can now slip in between both rather seamlessly... I grew up in Hackney. I will always be a Hackney boy but I'm enjoying being in a state of flux. Life is bigger than London. I'm currently more in love with my guitar than I have ever been. I make guitar music. I am not ashamed to say l love pop music. That's what its all about for me. Good music fueled by the world around me.
