Hanni El Khatib: “Head in The Dirt”

Hanni El Khatib released his new album “Head In The Dirt” in Canada a few days ago. Produced by Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys, the music is everything you’d want it to be: sexy, dirty, and borderline destructive. Be sure to check him out on the 14th of May @ The Commodore with The Black Angels; I’ll see you there. Enjoy Hanni El Khatib’s single, “Family“, below.

Winnie Reviews: Kitty Pryde @ Fortune Sound

Kitty Pryde is one hot mess of an act.

She’s “been a bitch since 97″, and hails from Daytona Beach… but I wouldn’t count on that being legitimate information, her branding is frustratingly inconsistent. “But that’s the point, doy” — yes, thanks for making it easier for us.

The show was good, and it helps that she is damn cute. Missing tones, screwing up, and acting unprofessional on stage are all part of the act; it was quite charming. Kitty is definitely doing her best to hit a specific micro-demographic and hoping it will spread… and hey, Nardwuar seems to have taken a liking to her.

It’s simple, Kitty Pryde is one of those artists you’ll love or hate. Which one are you?
