Duvet's Eye Candy: Secret Music Play With T.O.Y.S!...WAIT! Get In Now And Thank Me Later Because You Need To Know About These Guys!!...FURTHER! Not Much To Know About These Guys, So Peep The Video That Doesn't Show The Men Of Secret Music But Does Show That Creepy Dummy From The Movie Magic!

A shadowy duo indeed...Secret Music
One of the perks of being Bob Duvet your "music valet" is access my Duvetians. With so much music being run up the flag pole, sometimes you need a middleman to do the saluting. Hence, the need for this blog and others like it. I mean can you really trust the 1% over at With the preamble out of the way, I give you this diamond in the rough and soon to be adorning the blog-o-sphere's middle finger (another way of looking at the flagpole/salute metaphor). Today we are hollering about Secret Music! I know extremely little about the seeming duo from Brooklyn, other than I love them and want you to have the opportunity to fall in love as well. A source close to the band has allowed me to preview their as yet untitled, upcoming release and we are bullish on Secret Music here at WDS! The music has a BIG, multi-layered guitar approach at its core with plenty of oblique hooks to keep you interested. I'm reminded a bit of another Brooklyn-based purveyor of noisy glory, Japanther, with a bit of The Naked and Famous to keep you swaying in place on that cliff the Cure's Robert Smith dances on in the "Just Like Heaven" video. The songs are all consistently in the red, with big beats, anthemic chorus and impossible to ignore dance floor remix potential. There are plenty of dynamics to be found in Secret Music's music. Sheets of sound suddenly clear to reveal a bassline washing up on a sonic shore and then suddenly hoisted back into the sea by an army of distorted guitars. This is dense music with extreme care to production. A welcome return to 90's production sensibilities in fact and hopefully a trend to combat the staid glut of bedroom recordings. Below you will find the video for their single "T.O.Y.S", as directed by TV Carnage, easily one of my favorite videos of the year. Also, check out their digital 7" available on their Bandcamp site or via Black Bell Records

Bob Duvet Gets Exclusive Access To Kreayshawn @ SOBE's Mansion: "One BIg Club Full Of Mediocre Bitches..." PLUS! A Fistful Of Furries...AND! Much Anticpated Matchup Between Dolphins And Radiers Goes To The Dolphins...

Light em' up! Kreayshawn surrounded by HYPE! photo..HFC
Bob Duvet took his blogging Dog & Pony show on the road to Miami Beach this past Friday night. Armed with nothing but a "banana sling", Axe body spray, and a soon to be maxed out credit card, he descended on South Beach to support the Yeah Area's own, Kreayshawn. First off, BIG UPS to the fine folks at Exclusive Access/EAN5's and Thaddeus McAdams for hooking me and the Mrs. up with two FREE passes to one of SOBEs HOTTEST clubs, Mansion. I highly suggest you go and check out both Exclusive Access' and Mansion's websites because in both cases, "a picture says a 1,000 words..." Mansion is undeniably, like Miami, a one of a kind playground, with an AMAZING sound system. Friday night's DJs AFFECT and EFX knew how to get the most out of it - playing a SLAMMIN' mix of hip-hop backed by some hard-hitting house music. The accompanying light show, dance floor replete with stripper poles and manned by some of the FINEST dancers to work said poles, and a provocative coupling of two furries in the middle of the VIP, set the stage for Kreayshawn's Miami Beach debut. Kreayshawn is riding a hype wave generated by the viral success of her video for the song "Gucci, Gucci". The young rapper/video director/budding fashion icon/SWAG -generator/Twitter feed-a-holic and rumored to be a signee to a multi-million dollar record deal with Columbia, was in Miami to play a set as part of Mansion's "We Rock Hip-Hop" event. Yours truly, while a veteran of many club shows, admittedly, is not as well-versed in the nuances of Da Club shows, so the expected set time of 1am came and went without so much as a fist pump from the clubbers in the direction of the performer and her crew gathered in the VIP to the right of the stage.

Kreayshawn, V-Nasty, various dopplegangers and attendant crew happily texted away and snapped camera phones pics of each other flipping the bird. SWAG. This went on for close to 90 minutes with the DJ revving up the crowd only to have someone whisper in his ear that there were still Tweets to deliver and birds to be flipped. This was a bit of a disappointment to the faithful gathered in front just outside the VIP's hazy Valhalla. Kreayshawn's army were ready and awaiting their MOBBIN' orders! Bartenders and dancers alike were festooned in over-sized, black-rimmed eyeware and Edie Sedgwick eye makeup, in contrast to all the, "Gucci Gucci, Louie Louie, Fendi Fendi, Prada..." toting "basic bitches".  We were ready for the Bay Area to represent and blanket Miami Beach in SWAG fog. We waited and no one seemed to care one way or the other. Just one BIG room full of bad bitches and the men who love them. By the time Kreayshawn and crew hit the stage (and by crew I mean anyone who happened to be remotely connected to her entourage) at 2:45am any good will and hype that I felt going in was squandered. Maybe I don't quite understand the idea of partying with your friends, just out of reach but in full view of your fans, is supposed to endear me further to a performer. It all felt just a little douchey, for lack of a better word. I'm told it was V-Nasty's birthday, which might explain why the DJ prior to Kreayshawn's set seemed preoccupied with asking, "WHOSE BIRTHDAY IS IT UP N HER'?!?!" Regardless, I would have thought KILLIN' one of the top club spots in the country/world would have been a higher priority for both Kreayshawn and V-Nasty. Instead, those that were anxious to see what all the fuss was about got treated to a two song set of "Bumpin' Bumpin" and "Gucci Gucci".

That's right, two songs...six minutes. Kreayshwan was no match for the sound system or Grey Goose being passed around prior to her taking the stage. Both rappers affected the same indistinguishable tone - somewhere between a whine and a thugged-out cadence delivered under the effect of helium. There was little energy in the performance and no attempt at puttin' the smack down on SOBE. It felt a lot like watching Kreayshawn's hometown Oakland Raider fans all decked out in make-up and ghoulish costumes menacing for the television cameras, while the team on the field limps to a 4-12 finish. Earlier in the day my wife and I coincidentally ran into the diminutive rapper at a pizza place on Lincoln Road. She was sweet and seemed excited to be in Miami for the first time. I wish that enthusiasm made its way onto the stage at Mansion.  I had seen Kreayshawn in August at San Francisco's Slim's where she delivered a high octane and focused 35 minute set. She hit the stage with energy, purpose, and tons of her signature SWAG! Where was that girl in Miami Beach?
