Video: Straight From the Harp – “When the Sun Comes Up”

Straight from the harp

Sex + Religion, the new EP from Berlin based Danish electro blues duo was recorded in Austin, Berlin and Copenhagen. The music is a energetic and dirty meltdown of gospel music of the American south and the cool electronic sounds of Berlin. Check out the video for the track, “When the Sun Comes Up” below.

Shunda K & Snax Get Funky

Shunda K of Yo! Majesty, a lesbian, African American rapper, and Snax, a gay, Caucasian producer and rapper, didn’t know that the quickie music video they shot in a Berlin grocery store over the course of a day for their fun party jam “It’s Time To Get Paid” would rack up 600,000-plus YouTube views in a week.  They also didn’t know they would be dealt a dose of reality about the state of tolerance in our country.

 The clip, for the latest single from Shunda K’s album The Most Wanted generated hundreds of homophobic, racist and anti-Semitic (though neither artist is Jewish!) comments over the course of the time that the video was featured on YouTube’s front page as part of a playlist celebrating “National Coming Out Day.”

 Neither artist set about to justify the hatred with direct commentary on the site itself, but Snax issued an insightful and bitingly humorous commentary via his website “World of Snax” at snaxonline.org.  That post has now been re-published by The Huffington Post. In the post, Snax states, “I can’t stop you from doing anything. Know this, though; your tossed off, poorly written and childishly expressed ranting is nothing more than hurtful and destructive…”

 The clip for “It’s Time To Get Paid”  was shot on location in Berlin at Netto Grocery Store and Monster Ronson’s Ichiban Karaoke Nightclub. The clip also features an appearance by everyone’s favorite “F**k The Pain Away” performer, Peaches. Filmed, directed and edited by Robin Thomson, the video is accompanied by the release of a remix of the tune by DJ Dickey Doo, who also recently remixed the R.E.M. single “Alligator Aviator Autopilot Antimatter.”
