Jam of the Day – Stillness is the Move Against Hip Hop

Yesterday, at the final JellyNYC pool party of the summer, featuring performances by Grizzly Bear, Beach House, and Vega, Jay Z and Beyoncé were in attendance. This has been all over the news today for some reason, mostly for Jay Z’s praise for Grizzly Bear and indie rock in general, for pushing the envelope in music and giving Hip Hop a reason to go further. As he told MTV, “They’re an incredible band … The thing I want to say to everyone — I hope this happens because it will push rap, it will push hip-hop to go even further — what the indie-rock movement is doing right now is very inspiring … I hope that they have a run where they push hip-hop back a little bit, so it will force hip-hop to fight to make better music, because it can happen, because that’s what rap did to rock.” Not everyone will agree with Jay’s comments but it can’t be denied that there are some really ground-breaking acts out there these days.

Another Brooklyn band who has been getting a lot of notice lately for their music and innovation, and happen to be great friends of and collaborators with Grizzly Bear, are the Dirty Projectors. Their latest album Bitte Orcha, released in June, has recieved some rave reviews. With Beyoncé on their list of top friends on myspace, they could be next in line to get pulled into the hip hop game. They make their national television debut tonight on the Late Show with David Letterman, so they seem to be on the move.
