TUNE IN TUESDAY, Ed. #7

September 7, 2010

I’m thinking of changing the name of this blog to Dirty Fucking Hipster Who Wants to Experience Cee Lo’s Naked Body in a Totally Heterosexual Way dot com. Check out the official video for “Fuck You;” I apparently posted the unofficial (whatever that means) video a couple weeks back. This one is much better.

This dirty hipster highly suggests pre-ordering the soon-to-drop EP, The Lady Killer from Cee Lo’s website.

“Fuck You,” song of 2010? Thoughts?! -DFH

Arcade Fire: Sold and Re-Sold

September 2, 2010

Never was a big Arcade Fire fan. Then they had Terry Gilliam direct an online live webcast of their sold-out concert at MSG. Not that I give a shit about the director of Teen Wolf 2, but the production of that concert was top-notch. Fortunately for the band, the concert itself was also terrific. Following that, I was sold. Arcade Fire are certainly among those brave, adventurous modern bands that are both doing something new while keeping it accessible and attractive enough to invite new people in.

Then I caught wind of their latest music video. You want to talk about pushing the envelope. Consider it pushed. And consider this dirty fucking hipster re-sold.

Do your bored self a favor and check it out here: http://www.thewildernessdowntown.com/

Arcade Fire have achieved a seamless integration between their band, the band’s music and the technology that exists around them. The sort of integration that had previously not existed; not within music, not within art on the whole, and not within any brand or other commercial outlet. They are certainly carrying the torch for the internet generation, and proving what good, what creative good can be made of the web. This lazy hipster is certainly impressed, perhaps even motivated? Well, we’ll see…

If you didn’t at least deeply appreciate that video, stop reading this blog, you’re a mental case and I have no use for your eyes. -DFH

Two Post from Deli Mag This DH Endorses

September 1, 2010

Saves me doing a lot of work I don’t feel like doing. Nice work, Deli Mag!

FIRST: New Video from The Drums (I still have something to say about this new breed of Indie music that is somewhere between a satire and a blatant copy of a previous style of music, but I’ll save it for another post. This particular song is still very good, regardless.)

THE DRUMS – “Down By the Water” (Would like to hear from the readers about whom the band resembles/might be portraying; I’m thinking The Righteous Brothers. Hit me.)

SECOND: A really great NYC band this dirty motherfucking hipster loves. Apollo Run doubtless puts on a top-tier live show. Don’t be a dipshit. Spend $8 of your freelance paycheck and go see them. According to their myspace, they’ll be playing next in NYC at Rockwood 2 on Sept 16.)

“Fuck You!”

August 27, 2010

Dude, it’s Cee Lo. That means it’s good. Though I be a straight man, with how awesome this guy is, I have to admit that I kind of want to see his rod. I imagine it being really, really fucking cool. This this:


Cee Lo’s latest single

Bueno? -DFH

New Video from Yeasayer: They’ve Done Weirder

August 17, 2010

It seems that in the several months since the release of Odd Blood [read the review here], Yeasayer have taken a half-step toward reality. That is not to say that the band's marketing and imaging isn't still very strange, but compare this video to that for "Ambling Amp" and you, as the viewer, will feel as though you are experiencing something from the realm of Earth rather than, I don't know, Middle Earth?

Regardless, it's a terrific song and certainly an entertaining video.

TUNE IN TUESDAY, Ed. #4

August 17, 2010

While this is a music blog, for this edition of TIT, this dirty motherfucking hipster has decided to share some non-musical, YouTube chatter with you all. It’s partially out of malaise and laziness and partially out of a desire to illustrate just how fucking fantastic the internet can be, and show the awesome comedic potential that useless video-garbage has. Enjoy!


Reminds me of home


Mr. Dodson has some pretty killer rhythm and timing


Schizophrenic word salad sure can be funny. Do you like space?

Good for a few laughs, no? -DFH

Kanye Gets Artsy, or, New Adventures in Hi-Fi (Not by REM)

August 5, 2010

Yesterday, when I discovered this video, there were 341 views on YouTube. Today, of course, it seems to be old news with over 50,000. No matter, this is something you’ve got to see. Would be a lot cooler if someone I liked more than Kanye were involved in this project, but I will nevertheless keep the name Marco Brambilla in the ol’ memory bank. This dirty hipster recommends you do the same.


“From Civilization to Power” by Marco Brambilla”

It’s not very often that an art form finds itself completely original and eye-opening, but Mr. Brambilla seems to have created something new – and it’s beautiful. -DFH

No Real Article Here, Just a New Video from Harlem. Word.

Something good got posted on Stereogum today. It was the new video for your-friend’s-favorite-band, Harlem. Fuck parents, right? Yeah – fuck yeah!
