It appears that twitter trolls have put their attacks to some interesting use as of late, taking a stunning amount of space to barb Russell Brand and his new, sententious book, ‘Revolution.’ The viral rebuke against his verbosity began with Dan Barker, who hilariously suggested that “Russell Brand’s writing feels like someone is about to shout “PARKLIFE!” at the end of every sentence.'” The term stems from the title of a song by the British band Blur, which features ridiculous spoken lines by actor Phil Daniels, which are continuously interrupted by the word “Parklife.” Many retweets later, Brand is now bombarded with the titular term, and he’s drowning in hashtags. I suppose the guy deserves it. After all, if a comedian is going to wax on about politics, he can expect some powerful pushback, and this is brilliant. Listen to the song below, followed by a parody video of Brand.
With a devoted underground following and impressive mainstream success, Delta Spirit has become one of the most in-demand live shows to see. Originating from San Diego, the five-piece power group are promoting their fourth full-length Album, ‘Into the Wide,’ and their live performance at The Satellite beautifully balanced their well-known Americana elements with the modern rock transition of their most current material. Delta Spirit’s shift in sound is largely influenced by their move to Brooklyn, a transition that created just enough moody tension to incorporate city angst into their heavier record. Seeing Delta Spirit live at the Satellite confirmed their status as music’s must-see act, most notably the incredibly impressive drumming of Brandon Young, who captured my attention for most of the evening. Listen to ‘Live On’ below, and purchase their record on iTunes.
