Sky Ferreira's Video for 'Easy'

Sky Ferreira's role in Baby Driver emerges from the boundaries of the film, and creeps into the soundtrack.  When a movie comes along that is so deeply rooted in the music, those songs keep the story and the characters in your memory.  With 'Easy' Sky Ferreira and director Edgar Wright have done exactly that, with such unmatched grace that we've never seen it done so well...

LIZ: 'That's My Man' prod. Pharrell

Over the last year and a bit, we've been loving the sound of Liz's voice and the prime selection of producers that she's worked with.  Linking up with Mad Decent, and releasing her first singles on Jeffree's was a brilliant start to what is shaping up to be an exciting career.  The latest development following her 'Just Like You' EP is a single on the soundtrack to a serious blockbuster movie.  As the film version of The Amazing Spiderman 2 is about to be released in theatres, we want to remind you about the soundtrack. 

Liz appears on the album with the single 'That's My Man'.  It's produced by the prolific Pharrell Williams, and the result is a combination of soul and funk on this unforgettable pop track.  Get yours on iTunes!

Classic of the Day: Thunderclap Newman - Something in the Air

1969 saw the creation of a new band by the Who's Pete Townshend.  In starting the group Townshend aimed to build a musical outlet for the songs written by the Who's chauffeur; John Keen.  The multi-instrumentalist wrote a song for the Who, and was one of the musicians Townshend hoped to work with on a project, around the same time as Tommy.  

Keen, guitarist,  Jimmy McCulloch and jazz pianist Andrew 'Thunderclap' Newman were all on the roster of artists that Townshend had embarked on projects with previously.  For the sake of time, Townshend was persuaded to merge all of the three into what would become Thunderclap Newman; focusing on the new band and the Who.

Keen wrote the song 'In The Air' for the soundtrack to the film 'The Magic Christian'.  The film is not as well recieved as the song has been since their release.  In 1970 it was part of 'The Strawberry Statement' soundtrack, which helped propel the song up the charts.  In recent years it was used in the film 'Almost Famous'.  The band broke up in 1971, after one album.  In 2010 Newman released 'Beyond Hollywood' with a new lineup, including Josh Townshend the nephew of the founding member of the original band.
