From the Department of LMFAO. As you watch this video, you--like YouTube commenter mimilashay--might find yourself thinking, "ooooooooooooooooooooooooooomg. he is so sexy i cant believe it who is dis guy he wicked dis tune is banging!!!!" Well, the Beastmaster's name is K'Dre (pronounced KAY-dray, not kuh-DRAY), and while the video says he's with UMG, I checked their website and I'm pretty certain that's not true at all. And I'm going to take a wild guess that "Starnimals" is a combination of the words "star" and "animals."
I discovered K'Dre while I was watching a block of music videos on
NPT Music City Arts Channel 9 last night with my roomies. They often play some fantastic stuff, and while watching I caught videos and performances from Menomena, The Gossip, God Help the Girl (tweedar alert!) and locals including safe-ass SafetySuit. But there's one more thing I'd like to challenge local bands to do: If you have music videos, send them in to the arts channel! And if you don't have videos, make some and then send them in! I'm absolutely certain that these folks will play them. That, of course, is not to say that I don't want to see more shit like K'Dre.
