FYF Fest: One Day, One Artist
Australian electronic producer Chet Faker has taken the world by storm with his soulful and entrancing beats (watch his cover of “No Diggity” for a refresher). So much, in fact, that he just made Hypemachine’s Music Blog Zeitgeist making him one of the most blogged about artists of 2014 so far. Just yesterday the video for “Gold” was released from his new album Built on Glass. The Australian producer, whose real name is Nick Murphy, told Londonist “Gold” is actually the oldest song on the album, written two years ago. But after watching the new video filled with badass rollerskating chicks strutting their stuff on dark paved roads, the track is fresher than ever:

THIS DAY IN MUSIC

1956:

Elvis Presley appeared on ABC-TV’s Milton Berle Show. While singing ‘“Hound Dog,” Elvis performed his infamous and suggestive “gyrating” movements for the first time on television. It was the uproarious response to this performance that caused Presley to be filmed from the waist up for his future TV appearances.
