White Williams: Violator

White Williams: Violator

Considering Joe Williams’ background in noise rock, one would think that his debut album under the alias White Williams would be a flurry of shrill guitar feedback and abnormal strong structure. However, Williams’ freshman album “Smoke” was obviously inspired by the neo new wave movement sweeping the avant-garde music crowd. Complete with minimalist electro pop groove the album sounds eerily like a mixture between a young Beck and Moby. It was revealed late last year that Williams recorded most of “Smoke” on a single laptop in various apartments. This is not that surprising when the listener is engulfed by soft synth stabs and guitars that contain an immediately recognizable do it yourself ethic. Lyrically Williams can be ambiguous but his penchant for infectious melody and natural boyish charm over comes all pretensions. The song “Violator” off of the album quickly became a fan favorite especially during Williams’ live performances. Williams has finally appeased his die hards by releasing a video that perfectly matches the easy new wave vibe of the track. Mimicking the slow driving bass of the intro the video shows moving black liquid and visuals of Williams staring nonchalantly into the camera. The simplistic vibe of the song is shown on the video in what appears to be an ode to weird 80s early MTV electro videos.

Lil Wayne feat Kanye West: Lollipop (Remix)

Lil Wayne feat Kanye West: Lollipop (Remix)

Say what you will about Lil Wayne, but it is obvious that he is quickly becoming one of the most dominant artists in not just hip hop but in music over all. The New Orleans natives’ relentless work ethic, his ability to unconsciously string together similes and metaphors and his penchant for virtually transforming his vocal timbre into a flow that almost becomes a musical instrument over tracks has made him omnipresent on the radio, videos and mix tapes. Though still a young man Wayne is a seasoned veteran whose skill has grown by leaps and bounds. He routinely releases energetic verses that play with rhyme patterns and tweaks flow in a state in hip hop when MCs all seemingly rely on the safe conventional conversational approach. His subject matter is almost a schizophrenic as he bounces between the humorous and emotional but it culminates in a formula that has garnered him the respect of certain legendary MCs and the wrath of others. However, with popularity comes backlash and eventually unabashed hatred. Seemingly unaffected by the new crop of naysayers Wayne continued his onslaught on the listening public by releasing “Lollipop” the first single of his highly anticipated, long delayed “The Carter III”. The track is a hazy codeine induced song the combines a slow down tempo electro hip hop sound complete with auto tune vocals. When released, the song went number one on the charts almost immediately ensuring the public will hear the track all summer long and confirming Wayne’s popularity. Not content to rest on his laurels Wayne has recently released a remix to the song with arguably the other most popular MC on the planet Kanye West. On the remix, the playful vibe of the original is shifted a bit as the track becomes a trade of verse amongst two MCs who are now safely heavyweights in the game.
