Movits



Remember a while back when I said the only problem I see with American Hip Hop is that you can actually understand the words and they are rarely appropriate for mixed company. Now that problem has been eliminated by the group, “Movits.”

Movits is a bunch of toe-headed Swedes that have a unique hip-hop sound in their album,Äppelknyckarjazz. It is what you would get if you loaded Abba, Eminem, Django, Stan Goetz, Paolo Conte, The Flowbots, The Decemberists and Waldeck all into a bus and they melded together after a horrific crash.

They can usually be seen dressed in Tuxedoes and old style basketball sneakers and big Woody Allen glasses. Aside from this gimmick their music is really good and better yet, I can’t understand a word of it and unless you are a native Astorian you won’t understand it either.

Check out their Video!

How do you find this stuff? I liked the video that you linked to, but like the song A-kasseblues better.

Verrry Interesting (as Arte Johnson would say). Oh, it's tow head (spell check missed that one)...From the German for flax or hemp touw , the expression tow head literally means someone flaxen haired. Other variations are towhead or toe head, the later being a misspelling that does not relate to the word origin.

Excellent.... And if you want a real hoot, go check out the vid Attack!Attack! It's almost enough dichotomy to make your brain explode. 20's music, black wigs and head banging moves and swedish rap. Holy snap!

Pam, they were on Colbert last week.

Terry, thanks for that correction. Considering I live in touw head land one would think I'd know that by now.

Darev, Holy Snap says it all.

Tango, I live to please you, Darlin.
