LMFAO’s Redfoo Brings the Party to LifeMinute

March 28, 2016  |  CELEBRITY BUZZ, MUSIC  |  Comments Off on LMFAO’s Redfoo Brings the Party to LifeMinute

We all know his Party Rockin jams from LMFAO….but now Redfoo is going solo and taking things up a notch with a new debut album, a fashion line and of course more PARTYING! He stopped by the LifeMinute offices to tell us all about it…
image1And of course, as soon as you look at him you think nothing but fun….BUT there is a whole other side to the party rocker that most don’t know. Like, bet you wouldn’t have guessed that he used to be a day trader and is really good with numbers. His favorite hobby is putting data into spreadsheets. He likes to see the big picture all spread out in front of him.

Screen Shot 2016-03-23 at 12.04.07 PMRedfoo also shared that his dad, Berry Gordy (founder of Motown Records) told him he didn’t have the voice for rap. But did that stop him….hells no! It actually made him push even harder for what he wanted and now look where he is.

The Ting Tings Take It To Studio 54

Another monumental moment for us at LifeMinute! Getting to hang out with Jules and Katie from The Ting Tings for an hour, chatting about Studio 54, dressing like a toddler and how not getting drunk before going on stage is really working out better than they thought.

image3And if you’re asking yourself…who are these people?? Maybe the band name isn’t ringing any bells but their hits, “That’s Not My Name” and “Shut Up and Let Me Go” should definitely resonate. Did I just get you back? Good!

Their new album Super Critical is a different vibe than what we’re used to hearing from this pop-duo…more of an American late 70s, early 80s disco funk thing going on. Something straight out of Studio 54, it’s super fun and addicting.

Also addicting…their delicious British accents…take a listen for yourself and check out the full interview. lifeminute.tv/music/video/ibiza-usa-ting-tings-do-it-again

My favorite part was when Katie described her personal style as “dressing like a toddler.” Which I guess is true but she pulls it off with ease in a leather romper, lace top, sparkles in her hair, black tights and converse sneakers. LOVE!

Wyclef Jean Is Back

Most known musically for his times with The Fugees, Wyclef Jean is back with a new album that brings out his hip hop/reggae sound we love.

Little Greens Cars parked it in our office yesterday for a little private performance. The Dublin band just played the packed Lollapalooza (one of their fave performances so far) however, we think they might reconsider after rocking out for us!…

The Joy Formidable Just Wants Us to Feel Something

The joy was definitely formidable when we sat down with the cheerful Welsh band at the Music Hall at Williamsburg.

Screen Shot 2013-05-17 at 12.54.10 PM

Ritzy, Rhydian and Matt headed for the states tight on cash but big on passion. Now that the group is on their second album, Wolf’s Law, it is clear that their risk paid off.

Screen Shot 2013-05-17 at 12.54.52 PM

And what exactly is Wolf’s Law you might ask? We were wondering too… cue Rhydian with a little lesson in biology….

“Wolf’s Law initially is a scientific theory and it talks about how when you put stress on bone on your body your body adapts to deal with it. We kind of borrowed it and made it our own symbol for the record I suppose. “

Ooooh!

Screen Shot 2013-05-17 at 12.56.13 PM

But besides scientists, the trio also draws inspiration from a wide spectrum of musical artist. Matt is hooked on Frank Zappa, Ritzy digs 90s’ Dance Music, and Rhydian loves our girl Shirley Manson from Garbage!

However, the group told us they are trying to make their own mark…“We want them to go away feeling something” Ritzy explained to us.

Their biggest fear is being “bland”, “nice” and people walking away without an opinion on anything. Don’t worry Ritzy we won’t be forgetting The Joy Formidable anytime soon!

Matt Pond and Chris Hansen (not the guy from Dateline) popped in for an impromptu performance off their new album, The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hand.

Fun Matt fact: He dreams of songs to write and wakes up in the middle of the night to sing into his phone. Unfortunately 90% of them are crap he says.

Not too sure about that, all of your songs sound good to us Matt!

They’re back and better than ever! We’re talking the ’90’s alternative rock band, Garbage and we caught up with them in Montclair, NJ at the Wellmont Theater.

This was the first show on the last leg of their tour in support of “Not Your Kind of People”. They were very appreciative of their fans, particularly with the move to their own label for the new album.

They also did a duet with Screaming Females lead guitarist and vocalist – Marissa P – “Because The Night” which they recorded with her for Record Store Day.
