Nancy Magoo’s Weekend Mixup #23: Ladies I Love

Spring Breakers

 While I can’t go past some old warbling Mariah, I’m not usually into that type of female voice. Instead I like some with a bit of substance, soul or snarl. I really didn’t mean to make that alliterative. Here’s some ladies to start the weekend. No Taylor Swift, because I’m not 13.

Currently watching: Disturbing documentaries on YouTube

Serial Killers I’ve always had a fascination with serial killers. Are you born inherently evil? What events in your life turn you into a abhorrent killer? Is sociopathy a result of nature or nurture, or both? Can you tell if someone shows tendencies to become a serial killer when younger? Lately, instead of my usual routine of watching Law & Order: SVU episodes before bed and falling asleep to Detective Munch being the best character on TV, I’ve been indulging my love of serial killer docos on YouTube. Here are a few of my favourites.

Some other really fascinating documentaries are those on abuse, these cases of the worst types of nurture show the extreme detrimental effects of abuse can have on a person.

New Title Fight!

Title Fight

The four piece form Pennsylvania, Title Fight, will be releasing a new album in January 2015 entitled Hyperview and I am super excited. I saw these guys twice in London in 2011 and I loved them. They’re high energy and great fun to watch, although I didn’t last long in the pit. They also grace my lap top and the track Shed is on my playlist for when I practice on the punching bag.

Lap top

They have a video out for the track Chlorine which is an up-coming track off the new album. Check it out. Also check out the album Shed (2011) while you’re at it. Hopefully I’ll get to see them if they’re in Australia for this album.

Nas Australian Sideshows

Nas

 

Nas will be performing his ’94 classic Illmatic across the major cities in Australia before and after his appearance at the festival Sugar Mountain. While there’s something uniquely douchey about Nas he does produce some great music. Just forget about that Kelis period when he treated her terribly. Love you girl.

Darkness is Laughing

Hollow States

The talented Hollow States graced us by filling out our Q&A a few months ago. You can now stream the debut EP titled Darkness is Laughing over at Soundcloud. Check it out. I’m loving it.
