TGIFF: Belated Volume 5

Posted in Uncategorized by Joie on July 1, 2008

At this year’s Gay Pride Celebration in SF, Wild 94.9 FM hosted the “Latin Stage” with special guest, Crystal Waters, the early/mid-90s dance music queen who was seen more prominently on cheesy compilation-album infomercials than in real life. Lip-syncing no less, Crystal Waters was able to multi-task, showing off her many talents including the art of being man-wiched and hollering “Work it, motherfuckers” to the audience. Ending with this raunchy remix of a popular reggae hit, “Calabria”….that same catchy saxophone riff heard recently on the new Girl Talk album, Waters’ performance reminded me that the best things in life are (or should be) free of charge.



Juvelen: SWEDISH PRINCE (OR THE ARTIST FORMERLY KNOWN AS). PERIOD. Well, minus the R&B, more synthesizers, with an acoustic guitar on his back, like the guy from the film, Once.

Latest album: 1

Think: See Above

Juvelen – Don’t Mess

Juvelen – Hanna

Coolest video featuring the model rejects of last spring’s American Apparel catalog or this greyscale abstraction inspired by GAP:


Air France: Tropical pop duo reminscient of their record label producers, Tough Alliance. Melodies that melt away everyday troubles, inducing one to settle down on some abandoned island dreamt up by Terrence Malik, before realizing Dr. Moreau or a group of wild English boarding-school boys were there first, or worse, Tom Hanks and his volleyball Wilson.

Think: M83 + Air + Stereolab

Latest album: No Way Down

Air France – Beach Party

Air France – Collapsing At Your Doorstep

Don’t know whether it’s Air France or AIR FRANCE, and who’s promoting who:
