SANDY KIM ‘SKY2K’ RELEASE PARTY ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 15TH AT THE BRAND NEW MUDDGUTS SHOP IN BROOKLYN. THERE WILL BE A SHOW HANGING AND A SPECIAL MUSICAL GUEST. COME BUY A COPY, HAVE SANDY SIGN IT AND HANG OUT. IT’S GONNA BE REALLLY FUN.
‘You Already Know’ sounds like exactly like The Smiths! So you basically have a mash-up of The Smiths and Arcade Fire? What else could you want you spoiled bastards!
Pitchfork hated it, but then again they have always had it in for any band from SF that wasn’t Thee Oh Sees. Besides those dudes have been getting it wrong for some time now.
Another AC masterpiece. I love you buddy. You make the best mixes and somehow make even Vampire Weekend seem cool. Thanks for teaching me how to trade.
The W Hotel’s Gangs of New York summer music showdown ended with a Warriors-like gathering of emerging crews, but it was hip-hop’s OG prankster who stole the show and brought each crew together. Superchief waded through the smoke in the MC’s hotel suite to catch up with the man himself, and discuss what he’s into now, the difference between the 90′s and today, the victories in the movement to legalize marijuana, “How High 2″, and of course, that episode of Cribs.
James Murphy is all over this supposed AF single and I can’t say I’m mad at it – though maybe it’s a little boring?
Damn maybe it’s all the Xanax I’m on or something, but this mix chilled me the fuck out. And not in like an ambient way – in a pop way. Do you know how hard it is to find pop songs that can mellow you out?
Like all overproduced albums this one loses the fucked up, playfulness of a teenager with a great voice and comes off instead like someone told him what it “should” sound like. If you liked ‘Out Getting Ribs’ before this album, do yourself a favor and skip the new version forever.
That shitty Nokia ringtone in the into makes this whole joint for me. In fact it inspired me back in 2002, to use the T.R.O.Y. saxophone sample as my ringtone for about the next decade.
This by far takes the top honors for weirdest mix. If this were art it would be performance art for sure. Like the kind where chalk-faced Japanese children dance around in flowing robes while stabbing each other and making “blood music”. Or something.
If you forgot already, these are some of our favorite dudes, doing bizarro guitar riffs fuzzed into oblivion with some 60′s garage influence and heavy reverb on the vocals. It’s equal parts catchy and abrasive. Basically this shit is the best.
Sounds like dust and sweat and fun all drenched in reverb with just the right amount of fucking up thrown in for good measure.
Oh shit, is it not June anymore? My fault – Guess we’re not taking the internet very serious lately.
This is some of that throw the kitchen sink off your rooftop type shit
Summer mixtrades on this blog can can only mean one thing – stacks of dusty rock vinyl, dug out and played over the image of sun drenched avenues.
Shot where the Beastie Boys filmed the “Pass the Mic” video, the track features the oh-so familiar “All About the Benjamins”-Love Unlimited sample, and something completely new and solely Juiceboxxx-y. There’s skateboards, burritos, a kid with a massive helment on a bike, not to mention Juiceboxxx’s original “The Source Family” Robe. For serious, what more do you need?
L.A. is rife with young punks straddling the line between aping their regional punk-predecessors and pushing the L.A. sound into new territory.
Now that it’s nice out I have no excuse not to walk everywhere. The only thing is I hate walking.
So far 2013 has my head all screwed up. The new Deerhunter albums sounds like what The Strokes new album was supposed to be and The Strokes new album sounds like Daft Punk or some shit.
San Francisco electro-hop duo Double Duchess, have a new music video. If you like whips and sexy shit, you should watch it.
