Nina Simone - Revolution

Painting of Nina Simone by a fan named Paintedgrass
In a time when few artists and bands have anything meaningful to say with regard to bringing about revolutionary change, it does not hurt to flash back to actual changemakers and revolutionaries who would be raising hell if they were still here today. GC

Chicago - America

MusicTelevision.Com presents Chicago and the music video to the song America

The man who is probably the most powerful player in the music business, Irving Azoff, re-tweeted: "Dear Congress, it's not just Chicago sayin' it...". The tweet was originally from the band Chicago who recently released a new song called America. In a time when too few artists and bands are attempting to embarrass politicians who have been fucking up our once great country that has become a arrogant war mongering, currency diluting, drone using, bomb dropping, paranoid, spying police state, it is great too see any attempt whatsoever to embarrass the culprits and encourage American people to actually do something.

Never get enough of Trixie Whitley

This is the latest Trixie Whitley music video to the 2nd track of her most recent 11 song record titled Forth Corner. The song is titled Never Enough.

It's sort of hard to pigeonhole a particular genre of music Whitley plays in. Her songs are more of a alternative pop/rock sound with all sorts of interesting electric guitar sounds. Her music has a certain intrinsic etherealness to it, that is all her own... it's original. Bubbling & brewing at the roots of the songwriting seems to be a soulfulness with a real syncopated funk. I wonder if a funk band will ever cover her songs? Regardless of everything, Whitley is an original with integrity, not clawing for fame, just keeping it real. She is one of my top 10 favorite emerging artists over the last few years. She has the kind of songs that grow on you, not always upon first listen. Da Kine Creeper :) GC
