Now, QR codes are nothing new but the way in which they are being used seems to be evolving.
The innovative people behind Lupe Fiasco have teamed up with Red Laser to use a QR code to promote his upcoming album Lasers. In Union Square New York, a QR code was projected and offered fans a chance to pre-order and get additional bonus content of the album. A fun and innovative way to promote a new album – certainly got Dats Cool’s attention!
Check out a clip of the projected code in Union Square here!
r your iPod so we are super excited about the Zeppelin Air!
We loved how the original Zeppelin had great sound dispersion which meant that your tracks simply filled the entire room – surround sound at its best. It’s the awesome shape of the speaker system we have to thank for that we are thrilled to hear that the Zeppelin Air takes this to another level with some tweaks to the internal system.
What’s more? The Zeppelin Air allows you to stream audio from any of your Apple devices without having to attach it to the dock. No wires and looks awesome? Definitely welcome in my house Zeppelin Air!
One of the best albums out this year. Eddie Vedder tells a young man’s story on a soundtrack to Sean Penn’s Into the Wild.
It’s fitting that Eddie Vedder’s first full-length solo album tells the story of another man’s solo journey. Described by Rolling Stones as ‘…..weighty baritone onto earthy, folky tracks that temper the romance of absolute freedom with an eerie foreboding.’
Into the Wild is based on a true story about Christopher McCandless. He was in his twenties when he shunned society and ventured off (with few supplies and even fewer survival skills), but his live-off-the-land dream turned into every parent’s nightmare when he was found dead several months later.
Vedder plantive voice and soulful lyrics take us through this journey of freedom and teaches us the dangers of nature as well as the danger of wanting more than you have or need. Eddie Vedder has also raillied against materialism and greed and instead of running into the wild to prove his point. He has chosen music to get his message across.
