kennedy.


you will love kennedy from california. and the weird thing is that although he is associated with warner and already had a couple of his tunes used in flicks of the american pie and national lampoon's series, i have never heard of him before.

kennedy blends yesterday's disco with today's production and laces the tracks with surf-flavoured uplifting vocals. in a world where everything makes sense, kennedy should already have heavy radio airplay by now but obviously no one felt like making some serious promotion for him yet, so i guess we'll have to go and see what the blogs can do.

i am not even sure how old or new or released or unreleased these tracks are but 'karate' seems like a perfect french house-flavoured summer jam (reminding me of phoenix) which will definitely get the girls dancing on the floor and 'john and yoko' features the former blog house princess yelle, has some heavier guitars and real heavy and driving percussions. lighten up your day!

kennedy - karate
kennedy - john and yoko

i'll try and keep you posted about kennedy but you should add him on myspace anyway and more importantly: you fellow bloggers out there are more than welcome to spread the good word.

that song "who's lovin your mama" got pretty decent airplay a few years ago. it had a really funny and a little bit annoying music video.

"Karate" is a few years old (though re-released on an EP last year), but one of my favorite Kennedy tracks. However, more Kennedy exposure is never a bad thing.
