Walkmans & Cassettes by TNR

tnr_walkman_1

tnr_walkman_3

Remember the days before mp3′s, ipods, or even discmans…way back when we used walkmans and cassettes. Personally, I had the giant yellow Sony Sport walkman…that thing was indestructible!

The Toronto band Times Neue Roman has just released their full-length album, only available on cassette as part of a package deal that includes a walkman (designed by Monika Lynn) with headphones and batteries. It’s great to see a refreshing and creative way of releasing music in an over saturated market. The walkman’s have already sold out, but TNR is looking to create more!

We have an exclusive track from the cassette, check it out below…

Kudos to TNR.

The Phone Demos

Another rising star in the dynamic Toronto music scene is the beautiful Saidah Baba Talibah. She’s constantly winning over her audience each and every time she sets foot on stage. Some of you may have witnessed her incredible live show at this years Honey Jam? Since then she’s been working on her new project called “The Phone Demos” which is a raw and gritty recording of her latest material. It has a classic feel, with just her voice and a guitar, reminiscent of old jazz recordings. Let us know what you think?

No More – Saidah Baba Talibah

Stay tuned, the full EP is available for download on the 20th!

Good Hair

goodhair_poster1

I was fortunate to get tickets to the screening of “Good Hair” at the Toronto Film Festival this year. Chris Rock’s quest to uncover the lengths some black women will go for their hair was revealingly funny.

Personally, the expression “good hair” wasn’t a term that was broken down for me when growing up, but it was one I understood at a young age. Go to any Black Hair Salon and you will witness what some black women label as “good hair” and what some will do to obtain and maintain it!

But with a movement of black women, including myself, embracing natural textures and hairstyles, I think we need to redefine what good hair is.

Ladies, and/or gentlemen…comments please?!

Film opens today in Toronto.

Timeless From Toronto

The words vintage, retro, and throwback have all been poorly used and exhausted, when used to describe music. Most throwbacks actually should be thrown back to wherever they were.

Then there are some songs that no matter when they came out, what hairstyle you were rocking at that time, or what grade you were in. When you hear that song it has a way of evoking the same emotion. The type of song that you memorize the videos and sing the ad-libs, these songs are defined as Timeless.

From time to time Brock and I will submit an entry for the 1loveto.com Timeless From Toronto vault, if you have any suggestions please leave a comment. Once the song is posted on the blog it is up to our readers to decide if it is indeed Timeless from Toronto.

time⋅less  [tahym-lis] - By our definition are the classic songs that have the same impact every single time.

throw⋅back  [throh-bak]- By our definition are old songs, yes just an old song that is not a classic just because it’s old.

Above is my first pick EZ on the motion by: Ghetto Concept, shot in Rexdale, Jane n Finch, and Jungle.
*Directing debut for Lil X*

Let me know, is it Timeless or merely a Throwback, WHICH ONE?
