Bombay

October 19, 2010 Leave a comment

Yes, I haven’t updated the blog in way too long. However, I plan on changing my infrequent posting habits in order to promote well-being for you us all by sharing the most universal thing of all – music. What else causes our souls to quiver unceasingly?

Anyway, this may be one of the coolest music videos I’ve seen in a long time. A lot of these shots are genius, and the ones that aren’t at least look cool. The song is “Bombay” by El Guincho from his new record Pop Negro on Young Turks/XL. The single is firey, and the album pulsates with this crisp and dense production that work very well with El Guincho’s dark pop sound. He cites Luther Vandross and Babyface as influences on the album, and I can definitely hear the subtle, sexy throbbing of R&B undertones giving his cheery pop vocals a fantastic edge. Love love love this video as well as tons of love for his new album. It came out last week, be sure to check it out.
