Check out the trailer for "An Oversimplification of Her Beauty," an indie film directed by Terence Nance that screened at Sundance Film Festival last year, among other places. Apparently, along the festival circuit, it caught the attention of Jay-Z, who is now co-executive producing a version of the film for a wider release. Also note the score by glitch-hop mastermind Flying Lotus.
According to Pitchfork, "An Oversimplification of Her Beauty" is part animated, part live-action that "documents the relationship between Terence and a lovely young woman as it teeters on the divide between platonic and romantic." By the looks of the trailer, it could be a much-needed breath of fresh air for Hollywood.
For now, the only dates for screenings are April 26 at Cinema Village in NYC, or May 17 at Downtown Independent in LA. Hopefully this film will ride the wave of buzz into many more theaters sometime soon.
After looking over this weeks Top 5, four out of the five songs are really that kind of zone out to music so I hope you all get that same feeling that I did when I was putting this list together. Lets not waste anymore time and get into these tracks.
Easily the most anticipated song that so many people have been looking forward to in a long time. I compared it to the Mayan calendar, and though the song didn't live up to all the anticipation that it had recieved it still did better then the Mayans. I think it was a solid return for Justin, an I'm still pretty confident that the final album is going to be dope as hell.
There isn't much that can be said about this song that hasn't already been said. The obvious new attraction to this song is hearing Big Boi and Andre 3K on the same song again. Hopefully we won't have to wait another couple of years before we hear them together again because this just reminds us how great they are together.
This is a song that I fear people might have over looked because of the unfimiliar name, but your hearing it here first. Mr. Gage is dope. I've known about him because I'm homies with his camp SUH, but this is my first time hearing his music and I am very impressed. Stay in tuned with this guy.
Murph Watkins finds himself in my Top 5 yet again. Every time I hear new music from him I can't help but to think a better version of Curren$y and this song furthered that idea. Listen for yourself and tell me I'm wrong.
The final song on this weeks list is a definite change of pace compared to the other four songs on the list. When I listen to this it serves its purpose, which to me is club/riding music. If your looking for a dope track to kick off the night to "Millions" is for you.
So that's this weeks list, hope you liked it and if you didn't feel free to tell me about it.
A busy Sunday in entertainment and sports today, huh? It kicked off with the NFL Playoffs resuming with one of the best games of the year - Atlanta's two point victory over Seattle, then was followed by New England's advancement into the AFC Championship Game, the Golden Globes, which saw Homeland, Daniel Day Lewis, and Jodie Foster amongst many winners (Foster also delivering an odd, yet touching speech where she came out with the simple words, "I'm single."), and to cap it off - new music from Justin Timberlake.
With the new single featuring Jay-Z and longtime collaborator behind the boards, Timbaland, also comes the news of a new album to be released this year by JT entitled, The 20/20 Experience. You can listen to "Suit & Tie" below. JT fans, what do you think of the news and new single?!
The hotly anticipated new comeback single, off the newly revealed upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience.
What do you guys think?
My first impressions: Not really feelin' the intro, and overall... just mediocre. I can see this growing on me and I can see an upwards trend of the Suit & Tie combo once this single hits mainstream consciousness (and that's a good thing. Let's keep it classy, fellas.) But ehhh... just 3 stars from me. Rate it yourself below!
UPDATE: No new song today, but instead a one-minute teaser to new music entitled "I'm Ready" (which has no new music) and a countdown to 3 days from now (which is likely the real release of new music... but who knows?). And then Billboard is reporting that sources say JT is planning on releasing an album, entirely produced by Timbaland, sooner than later, with 20 tracks having been recorded already. Looks like everyone was teased pretty good today.
The track may come out tomorrow, but for now... Create-A-Caption!
01.09.12 11:58pm CT: Tomorrow morning, rumors are looking more and more clear that Justin Timberlake is making his return to music - accompanied by music's biggest power couple: Jay-Z & Beyonce. Produced by Timbaland.
And given JT's tweet, it looks like we'll find out for sure tomorrow morning. (But hey, he could be counting down to a late breakfast or somethin...?)
