It’s interesting to see that for as much as we are pushing forward technologically (I’m looking at you Mac Book Pro Retina, you sexy beast…), there are still those of us who are fascinated with recreating music using the relics of our past. That is exactly what Inverse Phase did with Nine Inch Nails debut album Pretty Hate Machine. Using eight different 8-bit systems, he recreated the entire album in chiptune, a style of music that uses old video game systems, computers, and other outdated electronic hardware to create vintage sounding tones. It’s a really cool take on songs that I’ve heard probably far too many times. Check out the stream below and, if you want to buy the album, you can snag it here! READ MORE
When I was growing up, Robert Davi was one of the few actors that truly stood out for me. My dad loved showing me James Bond movies, so I saw him as villain Franz Sanchez in License To Kill. I also saw him as the bumbling henchman Jake in The Goonies. Then there was FBI Agent Johnson in Die Hard. From good guy to bad guy, kids movies to rated-R features, Davi seemed to be able to tackle any role he took on.
Now Davi will show the world his other talent: singing. When I first heard that Davi was going to do an album of Frank Sinatra covers, I immediately was very skeptical. One listen was all it took to convince me that not only could he pull it off, but that he is PERFECT to undertake such an endeavor. I really thought I was listening to Ol’ Blue Eyes himself.
Davi Sings Sinatra: On The Road To Romance comes out Oct. 24th. Check after the jump for a short, must-see trailer.
