New song from Swamp Dogg featuring gorgeous, gorgeous vocals from Jenny Lewis.

The little bit of Swamp being driven around at the start is people as I love to see them. With heart.

Red Hot Chili Peppers play a smoking cover of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" (video)

At a 2006 performance in Copenhagen during Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante's first triumphant return to the band, the band busted out this smoking hot impromptu cover of Donna Summer's masterful Moog disco number "I Feel Love" (1977). It's a beautiful moment for Frusciante and Flea.

The band has since performed the song multiple times since Frusciante's second triumphant return in 2019.

One of the best songs written IMHO, and a gorgeous rendition to boot. This video of the RHCP is a short one, and I know you'll be ready to boogie down after it is done, so here 12" version of the original in all it's over-eight-minute glory.

I'm really enjoying this whole series of short grab interviews exploring themes around hip hop. It is mostly a grab of three questions per artist featured, and seems to be about five questions in total. I admit that I wasn't totally impressed by the questions that have been asked, yet remains some extremely insightful comments around the nature of hip hop at this point (stated as the 50th anniversary of hip hop, anyone paying Herc yet?).

I'm a long term Del fan, so I would likely be biased to his views, though still wanted to share his take on these questions as they reflect an approach I aspire toward.
