That’s right, true believers, JM+FFD are releasing another album THIS THURSDAY (January 12th, 2017)! It’s called Heart Tones and it is excellent (I was given an advance copy to listen to last month because I’m just that awesome).
Here’s the video to my fave songo from the album, featuring another musician friend of mine, hip-hopster Chris Blount!
The CD release show is happening at The Crocodile in lovely downtown Seattle.

My wife and I will be there! We wouldn’t miss it. Would you? WOULD YOU!? DO NOT!
President of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aimé appeared in all of his awkward glory on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last week, ostensibly to debut the new IOS-only (for now) Super Mario Game, Super Mario Run. You can watch the whole segment here if you like. It looks like a fun game, even though I’ll have to wait for the Android version before I can play it myself. But there were two great surprises during the segment. The first was Reggie brought out the upcoming Nintendo Switch console and let Jimmy play the new Legend of Zelda game on it. The other (and better) surprise was the creator of Mario & Zelda himself, Shigero Miyamoto, was a surprise guest in the audience:
Miyamoto-san is so happy to be here!
But the best surprise was yet to come: Shigeru Miyamoto himself sat in with The Roots and they all played the Super Mario Bros. overworld theme song together! It was something to behold—you can behold it right here!
Sometimes good things happen. Isn’t that right, Miyamoto-san?
It’s a green-screened, multi-headed sonic adventure, as JM+FFD are layered and re-layered and cross-faded and layered over each other (and themselves) some more! There’s also a charming, fourth-wall-breaking moment where you get to see Julia struggling to get Matt properly green-screened:
Get ‘im screened, Julia!
Anyhoo, enough from me; watch the new video here:
The new album, HeartTones, is being released in January! They’re having the Album Release Party at The Crocodile on January 12th at 8:00 PM (get tickets here). I’ll see you there!
Well, the band AJJ has created one of those 1-take videos that blows all other 1-take videos out of the water. This is the greatest 1-take music video in the history of music videos. Watch it below, and keep watching after the video ends for some mind-blowing behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. You’ll lose your mind from overwhelming amazement when you watch this:
The timing is just exquisite.
Oh, and the song, “Goodbye, Oh Goodbye” is from AJJ’s upcoming new release, The Bible 2. Check it out!
The rare sequel that’s even better than the original!
