Pursuit of Happiness

Well, Kid Cudi's back. With a choon of a song called as you may of guessed "Pursuit Of Happiness". Being released yesterday I thought I'd bring it to your attention as, well, Cudder deserves the attention.

The song shows you whats inside of Scott Mescudi, a deeply tormented soul, one comparable to a martian due to his introverted nature. Its shows his sensitive side and how he deals with inner torment "Tell me what you know about night terrors/ Nothin!". Portraying a man who feels he's alone on his journey in life, being the lonely stoner that he is. Sure this my not be as much of a head turner as Day N' Night, but, you can imagine it being on the radio as Cudi transforms himself into hiphop-rap-indie hybrid, one style of music which, I definitely approve of.

There's also an amazing remix which was released some time ago by Steve Aoki, which is one of the best remixes I've heard in a long . It gives you a whole new perspective on the song and gives it more than the meanings you first interpret the song to give. It makes it seem as if CuDi's still aiming and "get, get get(ting)" what he really wants from his music career, check it out here.

As usual, here's the MP3s you want:

Frank's New MUSIK

He's back! After. Well, not too long really, but its great to see that Vince has gone back straight into making music after what he'd probably think was a under performing debut album, one which to me was throughly underrated.

So now onto his new single, being called "Losing Streak", quite fitting really, Frankmusik, or Vince as he's known to his friends has had a year of ups and downs with none of his singles reaching the top 20, yet his album was the largest selling new male album in the UK for the most of 2009. Which is a huge achievement. He deserves every plaudit he recieves.

Currently recording his new album "Follow The Leader" in LA with producers which include Computer Club, its quite clear Vince is moving away from the pop scene and is becoming a little more club. Its apparent in Losing Streak with his incredibly catchy lyric " "If you let her she will swallow, not your dick but your brains cause everyone is the same". This is why I love Frankmusik. He's both witty and charming?

I know this is a new year and my first post is of my favourite artist of 2009, but, well, I don't see myself ever moving away from Frankmusik, and theres a goddamn good reason too! Listen to him... Then you'll realise.

As ever here's a few mp3's to give you a taste of the true Vincent Frank aka FrankMusik.
