week&groove – Mr. Zebra


This week’s track is Mr. Zebra by Tori Amos. A dark story perfectly disguised in a child’s lullaby. We love this eclectic interlude that would be a great bridge between two tracks in your car cd of week&groove. This could be a song about a woman who was abused by her husband before poisoning him and burying him alive. Or about abortion and women’s rights. Or about veiled allusions to celebrities. Or just about some kinky Amos laying her many layers in such a short track. I have a feeling that even after the millionth time I hear this song, I will still think, what is she talking about?

week&groove – White Christmas

This week’s track is White Christmas by Corporal Blossom. Well today is a snow day in my intimate part of Beirut, and I have an urge to start feeling the holiday flavor. Radio doesn’t help. These stations should start selling cheese instead of playing infested Christmas tunes. What better way to re-educate the world on the true meaning of musical sharing than by a snappy version of “White Christmas” sung by multiple artists (Louie Armstrong, Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Diana Ross and The Supremes). The (de)construction was conceived by New York artist “Corporal Blossom” who appears on multiple “Illegal Art” projects as part of the continuous fight against digital copyright restrictions mainly using mp3 sharing and thrift store vinyl.

Meet BeirutRestaurants.com

I have just discovered this website, a resourceful online directory for restaurants in Beirut city. It is, without any doubts, the most updated database for restaurants around, and has a diverse selection for residents or tourists visiting Lebanon.

So if you are looking for any information on any restaurant in Beirut, you can find it there. It offers a ranking of the best 10 restaurants, pictures and detailed description of each restaurant as well as a service of localization accessible through Google Maps.

Watch this video if you want to know more. Badeeh Abla is the managing director of Beirutrestaurants.com, talks about this great project.

week&groove – Black Cats (Callin In Sick Remix)

W&G-smallogo

This week’s track is Black Cats (Callin In Sick Remix) by Bertie Blackman. I just discovered the newest remix of this song, and it’s fixed on repeat since then. With a really catchy beat, this is definitely a floor filla! The track is anchored by the yearning honey-drip voice of the Aussie fire-starter Bertie Blackman. The talent is undeniable, the future seems perfect, and the guitar parts are just terrific. Calling In Sick has stepped up to the plate and have produced a killer remix with a beat that will probably be stuck in your head for week(&)s.

week&groove – You’ve Got The Love (The XX Remix)

This week’s track is You’ve Got The Love (The XX remix) by Florence + The Machine. Mysterious and sonically stylish, The XX were the ambassadors of the very first edition of week&groove and they definitely don’t need any further introduction. Florence is the hip artist of the moment, she writes her best songs when she’s drunk or has a hangover. Flo’s soaring, epic vocals, quirky melodies and self-contained musical world have already won her the 2009 Critics Choice Award at the Brits. Some compare her to Kate Bush. You’ll also find touches of Tom Waits and Nick Cave in her dark visions, and if you heard a little of Bjork too, she’d find it a compliment. If you thought for a second that maybe this track wasn’t going to adhere itself to your heart, then you haven’t heard it twice.

In their veins flows the train

The concept: a short-film student competition around the concept of travel (by train) in 3 minutes and only with mobile equipment (mobile, camera, digital camera). “In their veins flows the Train” won it all.

Everything stopped in 1995. Abandoned carcasses, a deserted station in Beirut… No train has run in Lebanon in sixteen years, but those who used to drive them have not forgotten. Two French students in journalism, Guilhem Bertrand and Marc-Antoine Bindler (ISCPA, Paris), went to meet them, with a small digital camera.
