Gerard Edery paints with an impressive palette of color on this soothing album. With a fondness for spacious atmospheres and a pastoral quality, there is an intimacy that ties the entire album together. Sung with such passion, Gerard Edergy proves to have a deft ear for melody, featuring arrangements that positively teem with life. A communal spirit appears throughout, as the songs offer a celebratory, joyful spirit. Instrumentation feels particularly rich, with light delicate rhythms and lush guitar work. By far the true heart and soul comes from Gerard Edery’s resonant vocals that grace every piece, imbuing it with a strong sense of life.
Setting the tone for the album the ornate “Bin El Barch/Ki Eshmerah Shabbat” introduces things on a high note, with triumphant guitar work and tactile percussion. Regal in temperament “Los Ejes de mi Carreta” has a mysterious aura to it. Thoughtful and contemplative “Chacarera de las Piedras” chooses a nimble path, with guitars merging together with a slightly theatrical flourish. “Lie Down Beside Me” strips things down the essentials, with shimmering tones and deep, lovely vocals adorning the entirety of the piece. A brightness permeates the highlight of the album, the tender “Tres Morillas”. An autumnal presence underlies the spirited “Des Oge Mais”. Ending the entire album on a comfortable note the rich “Where Corals Lie” neatly summarizes all that came before it.
On “Best of Gerard Edery Vol. 1” Gerard Edery brings together elements of folk, classical, and jazz into a compelling, fully complete whole.

If you know anything about Tyler The Creator, you know he jokes all the time when he’s in public. Recently the Odd Future front man, A$AP Rocky and crew took a trip to Target that turned into an all out laugh fest as Wolf Haley went wild in the store.
Pretty Flacko captured the video on his phone, which included shorts clips of the ride to the Target and Tyler playing ballerina at the cart station. Inside the store the antics continued as Tyler went cart surfing. He attempted the trick a number of times, even trying to get fancy and hop in the cart while it was in motion, almost falling more than once. On his last attempt he almost knocked over a display while hanging out the cart on one leg. All this happens in front of stunned shoppers. The kicker to the whole video has to be Rocky’s uncontrollable laugh which sounds like a garden sprinkler..
Tyler recently announced the dates for his 2016 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival. The event will take place November 12 and 13 at Exposition Park in Los Angeles. The lineup has not been unveiled yet, but the fifth annual event is sure to feature some huge names, as last year included artists like Snoop Dogg, Mac Miller, YG, A$AP Rocky and more.
The visual for Rick Ross’ song “Quintessential” off last year’s Hood Billionaire album just dropped.. Featuring an appearance from Snoop Dogg, the video features the lavish opulence and boss behavior we’ve come to expect from classic Rozay videos. Ross does some hustling with his negotiaing skiils in a intro skit selling a blonde to a pawn shop owner. Dope track and Las Vegas visual.
Not very many of us have $4 million dollars lying around to purchase a high end vehicle but this guy does. He goes by the name of Kris Singh and he owns one of the two Lamborghini Veneno’s in the United States. If you’re not familiar with the Veneno, it is a historical gem of the Lamborghini’s line up and is a highly limited production supercar. Based on its predecessor, the Aventador, the Veneno was produced in 2013 to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary and only 3 of them in the world were made, which may explain its exorbitant price. Kris Singh, an American businessman and a car collector, is one of the few lucky people to be able to afford such an extravagant vehicle. With a net worth of $200 million, $4 million for a vehicle isn’t that much money to Singh. Before he purchased it, he didn’t even know what it looked like and blindly bought the highly respected Veneno. This vehicle features a 6.5 liter V-12 engine, 740 horsepower, and a top speed of 221 mph
