Matt and Kim Stream ‘Lightning Remixes’


Matt and Kim made headlines a few weeks back when they released the album work for their remixed album, Lightning Remixes which showed the duo portraying Adam and Eve with drummer Kim Schifino completely topless (which can be seen above, if you didn’t already notice).

If you’ve ever seen her perform live then you know that it’s nothing, but like most things, some people blew it out of proportion and took offense to it.

Schifino’s response? To simply apologize to her family via Instagram.

“To my family…I am sorry but my boobs are on the Internet today. Good news is they are the same size as when david and I or even heather and I took baths together so it shouldn’t be that weird! Xo,” she wrote.

Now that’s badass.

Today, the full album has been posted on Soundcloud where all ten remixed tracks ca be heard. Lightning Remixes is set to be released on October 1 through FADER.

ASL Interpreter Steals the Show

It might have been the return of Wu-Tang Clan, but let’s just say that it wasn’t the staple 90s group that stole the attention of many at this past weekend’s Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, TN.

Their American Sign Language interpreter, who has only been identified as Holly, stole the show signing along to everything that the hip-hop group threw at her. The way that she performed, with such self-assurance and confidence took the attention off of the stage and onto the space in front of the stage.

But that wasn’t the only place that our dear friend Holly showed up, she was even called on stage to perform with Matt & Kim and did some ASL and show off what she got and even better, she got called on stage to perform with R. Kelly.

Don’t believe us? You can see the video of Holly signing for R. Kelly here and where it all started, with Wu-Tang Clan.
