Holy shit son. Holy shit. How I’m feeling about this is real. This album is The Electronic Future. The Techno Way and the light.
SBTRKT basically just came through and make me like some shit that I usually dont like. And were passing “like” status. Were getting to “playing this shit daily” type-love. Its serious. Real talk? Fuck all that Frank Ocean shit.

This is where my attention is for now. Read the rest of this entry »

If you didn't know already, Beastie Boys + Nas = Flawlessness. Too Many Rappers [New Reactionaries Version]:

with 3 comments

I mean, if you didn’t know, I just want to highlight this. Hopefully theres some kinda video treatment in the works for this already. Please. Please Music Video Jebus.
Too Many Rappers [New Reactionaries Version]. Beastie Boys Featuring Nas. From the somewhat epic and worth the wait Hot Sauce Committee Part Two. My favorite song on the album thus far, possibly for the long run. I love everything about it. The 80s style only they can do, the (somewhat minimalist) beats, the crazy sounds used to make music, the weird synthesized sound fading in out the song like a siren or light of warning. Its so ill. I love Hip Hop like this. You guys can party to Make Some Noise if you want to, I’m over here with this song.

Witness the Haiku Power and Press Play. Or click the link. From your cellphones or iPads. You can play it.

..and then check the completely different version of it sitting on YouTube I just found.

Enjoy this in all of its awesome, please.


The 'LA Rising' Concert = Rage Against The Machine, Lauryn Hill, Muse. For Starters.

Did we talk about the Big Boi and Modest Mouse Collaboration? Because its actually happening.

leave a comment »


So after hearing the rumor of this odd yet amazing combination happening for a while, and silently waiting for some kind of confirmation… it finally comes through via the wonders of Big Boi’s Twitter and Twitpic. Then Pitchfork came through with the confirmation. Swipe from them, because I really don’t feel like typing all this sh*t out right now:

Last week, OutKast MC Big Boi revealed on his Twitter that he’s been in the studio with Modest Mouse, working on new music. To put things lightly, the news took a whole lot of us by surprise. MTV recently spoke with Big Boi about the collab and filled in a few blanks, though we still have no idea how this collaboration might sound or when we’ll get to hear it. According to the man himself, he’s serving as a producer on Modest Mouse’s new album, as is frequent OutKast collaborator Chris Carmouche. Thus far, Big Boi hasn’t done any rapping for the band. The crew has been working together at Big Boi’s own Atlanta studio, Stankonia. Talking to MTV, Big Boi described the collaboration in terms that only he could use: “I’ve been a fan of the band for a minute… We’re all musicians and producers and artists, and it’s just like a big-ass brainstorm, a brain-stormin’, tsunami, typhoon, tectonic-plates-movin’ kind of thing. We do all types of music, so to get the chance to jam with a jammin’-ass band, I knew it was going to be cool. We had a vibe too. We made a couple of records that are just jamming. It’s a hodgepodge of funkiness.” Modest Mouse has been a highly successful, critically acclaimed band for about a decade and a half now, but this still might be the nicest thing anyone has ever said about them.

I don’t want to overhype things, because when you get really excited for albums, they can sometimes leave you disappointed. But I will say that my brain exploded from reading the music awesomeness that is occurring somewhere out in this universe.

As things develop and music is released…. I will find a way to get it to you.

Stay tuned.

Lil Wayne: The Carter IV – Official Album Cover:

leave a comment »

When I saw it in Termanology’s Twitter Avatar, I thought they were joking. But they are not joking. And its kinda awesome; 1987 REPRESENT.

Here is your official cover to “Tha Carter IV:”

I still don’t get it, but I will laugh at the continuing hilariousness as it goes on.

Still not posting fulltime, I’m sure some of you notice. Let me work out some kinks on the site and get some writing done for Autostraddle, and I swear I’ll be back at being awesome soon.

I love you, Potholes In My Blog. When I’m slippin, you’re right there with a musical cushion to catch me.

For the first single off their newest album (which also made Potholes Most Anticipated Albums of 2011 list), MMJ kinda leave behind their trademark Pedaled-Up technique and  take you on a 7 minute melody changing, bluegrass and country influenced, uptempo little journey that somehow leaves you wanting more even, though you just spent a good chunk of your time with it. Hard to pull off nowadays… but easy for these kids who are on their 99th album already (no not really. But you know what I mean).

You can right click-save as right here to download, or just click it to enjoy. (OOOOOh. I’m learnding MacBook. LOL).
