Underground System's Wild Stop-Motion 'Go' Video: Premiere

New York's supergroup Underground System is unleashing its debut album, What Are You, and the first lead single entitled "Go," is a far-out funky electric beat that'll shock you right down to your dancing soul!

The collective group formed in 2010ish, and after eight years (yes 8 years) of experimenting and developing their sonics, the band is evidently highly influenced by Afrobeats and by the music of Fela Kuti, a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, musician, composer, pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre (the group is even named after one of his songs).

"It wasn't until a few years ago we started to formulate what I feel was an original concept behind the group," said the big boss co-founder and mister finger licking guitarist Peter Matson. "This is the first time we're really making a statement, but it's developed from... a straight-ahead Afrobeat band to bringing in all these other influences we have. We grew up on a diet of rock music and jazz, pop music from around the world. It was a big challenge but I feel like we're just starting to get there with this sound we're developing."

Mister Matson specifics the sauciness of the bass-driven track "Go" to be indicative of Underground System's journey. "It's definitely one piece of the puzzle, which becomes pretty evident when you put together a few of the tracks. The song 'Go' is relatively straight-ahead in terms of an identifiable verse and chorus-type song structure. It's a very New York-centric kind of dance rock and post-punk. The lyrics stem from some dark personal experience, but it's a very energetic tune."

The bubble pop electric animated, one stop-action video, created by co-band member Alice Cohen. "It's a really cool process," Peter Matson spills. "She does (the animation) all by hand, cutting out of books and magazines and actually shooting frame by frame and piecing it all together slowly and then finally editing on the computer. That's what we appreciated the most, beyond the aesthetic, was the craftsmanship. That's the way we producer or music, too. It's all recorded audio, not dealing with samples, bringing in musicians we know and kind of structuring all these things from the ground up."

Get ready to shake a tailfeather and dip and do it to Underground System's marvelous dance groove "GO"!

Lisa Marie Presley still asks for Elvis’ help 41 years after his death

Here Ye, Here Ye! Long Live The King!

"Death hasn’t gotten in the way of Elvis and daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s relationship.

The singer-songwriter, 50, revealed she still feels a closeness to her father 41 years after his death during an interview with UK talk show “Lorraine.”

Speaking about their new duet, “Where No One Stands Alone,” Presley said, “I just felt really emotional. It’s never pleasant to sing and cry. You just can’t do that in a good way. I had to keep my composure, but I felt very connected to him and to the song.”

Asked if she ever asks her father for guidance, she said, “I wouldn’t say I talk to him … I just remember everything. I can sort of pull out of the files whatever memories I have and stuff like that. And occasionally ask for help. Which was the case with this record. I just felt like a hand come down to me, it felt like that a little bit.”

Presley, who explained she feels most comfortable when she’s upstairs in the living quarters of Graceland by herself, also described how she felt upon recently stumbling across a quote from the King about fatherhood for the first time.

“There was a quote on the wall as I was leaving the [new Graceland] exhibit, it said something like, ‘Becoming a father is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.’ I had never seen it before, last night was the first time I saw it, so that was really cool,” she said.

“I knew there was a great love there,” she added. “There was a really strong connection there since the minute I can remember. It kind of reinstates what I felt was the truth, which is that I felt like I was the most important thing to him.”

Elvis died of a heart attack on Aug. 16, 1977, when he was 42 years old. At the time of his death, Lisa Marie was just 9 years old.

“Where No One Stands Alone” appears on the new album of the same name, a collection of reimagined Elvis gospel songs. It was released last Friday." -

The moment has followed the rapper for quite a long time –– even former President Obama called him a “jackass” for interrupting the pop singer’s big MTV moment." -
