I look forward to hearing more from Milky Chance (Vote for Milky Chance as “Best German Act” at MTV EMA.). Enjoy.

Speaking of Toki Wright, here is a great video of him performing the title track off of his latest effort A Different Mirror on 89.3 The Current. As you can see in the video, this dude can flow mad tight and has a great deal of talent. Please do yourself a favor and go pick up his album, he’s reppin’ hard for the Mighty Minneapolis. Thanks to the homie Shake on this one.

According to Gimme Noise, the Minneapolis metropolitan area has taken over the airwaves at MTV2 and MTV2.com this week, where they’ll be hosting interviews and performances that they taped two weeks ago during Soundset and such. To start the week off, Subterranean has posted a video of the local boys in Tapes ‘n Tapes showing off their acoustic skills on a rendition of “SWM”. Pay attention to MTV2.com throughout the week for more performances with TC artists such as P.O.S., Mike Mictlan, and more.
For today, I’m back with a round-up of the week in music videos and live performances that I cared to watch (except for one – if I find a d/l of the awesome Faith No More set from Download Festival that I live-streamed, I’ll be sure to post it later). Enjoy the list I’ve compiled; you’ll need to set aside a good chunk of time if you want to watch them all!
