While on a world tour to support their fourth album, Love in Flying Colors, The Foreign Exchange stopped by the Tiny Desk to rev up a Friday afternoon. I've followed Phonte Coleman and Nicolay in their 10 years as a band — and it's evident their writing and production are honest and downright pungent at times. But when it's time to perform, it's all about fun.
Backed by keyboardist Zo! and percussionist Boogie, Phonte, never short for words, lays down some quick ground rules. He then proceeds to interpret lyrics to meld three stripped-down highlights from their latest LP, including one of our top sleepers from last year.
Enjoy this Tiny Desk Concert that also serves as a church sermon and stand-up act. --BOBBY CARTER

I still remember the day my friend first showed me connected. It was Summer 08 in Sydney Australia. We would always scope the discount section of the hip hop albums at a retail store called JB HI FI. My friend's hip hop knowledge back then was much more diverse than mine, so he knew what too look for. I was already familiar with Little Brother and adored their sound, but I guess you could say I wasn't to in tune with more "underground" artists/groups. One day whilst browsing at JB he found this album and was so ecstatic that he did. He proceeded to tell me the story of how Phonte and Nicolay had made the album without having ever met each other and had corresponded through email to create the album.
We rolled up a fat joint and listened to the album in his car....it changed my life forever.
There are few vivid memories I have of hip hop changing my life (Hearing Luv Sic and finding out who Nujabes is, Blu & Exile; Below the Heavens) and listening to Connected was one of them. Needless to say the album helped shape so much about me and my taste in music.
Excellent set, however the audience is wack as hell. You got three great musicians: Phonte, Zo! and Nicolay and no one in the audience is really feeling them. Fuck the staff at NPR, they should have got a real audience in there.
samgames12 download 'videoder' app it lets you pull audio files from the videos here and on FB, soundcloud and some other shit. It goes from a video to a song on Youre phone in about 2 min over Wifi. Its pretty dope. Enjoy.
+*DrinkMoWater* Welp, you see what drugs and alcohol have done, to my short-term memory, family*lmaoooo*........!!
But, it is good to encounter you on here, again; and, I shall be SURE to remember the moniker, for our next link-up, no doubt.
Good Morning to you, brother...
+*DrinkMoWater* Appreciation for that, brother...may I ask who this is, since: I get the feeling we definitely are familiar away from these YouTube walls...??
Either way: the pleasure is my own, family...!
One of my fav aspects is that his singing voice, while not great is authentic. Not all those gimmicks and computer tricks. Dude is genuine when he sings and I can definitely appreciate that. Love their music.
Ironic that this album is entitled "Love In Flying Colors" because I truly travel when I listen to FE and and inwardly I do see a myriad of colors and images that really expand my worlds(inner and outer world(s). FE's music will stand, 20 or 30 years from now I believe that I will still be able to relate and fish out memories from the music they have and will make.
We went to the Philly saw this past weekend and it was fantastic. The band was stellar. Phonte is a brilliant frontman. His picture is next to the word "Charisma " in the dictionary. They're clearly one of the best bands on the road today. My daughter was blown away too.

The level of manual tasks, duplication and non-value added activities in the payroll process often prevent staff from providing the reports that management require on a timely basis.
The best practice for providing management information that is timely, useful and relevant is automating, simplifying and standardising as many processes and tasks as possible, to eliminate unnecessary complexity and inconsistencies. This will reduce opportunities for error or fraud and make it easier to track the quantity and quality of information flowing to payroll.
A holistic approach that considers factors across all business dimensions, including strategy, structure, people, process and technology, creates reporting that is highly sustainable and scalable.
If you do not feel confident in your reporting capabilities or would like to improve your reports, technology could be a valuable ally providing master data that is clean, up to date and which can be relied upon.
