For you Spoon fans out there, you’re probably already aware that Spoon’s new album Transference is due out in January. Here’s just one of their new singles, played live here at the Fillmore West. They played 3 nights, essentially covering their entire new album…you can hear the rest of it here:
At age 15 Hudson Mohawke (real name Ross Birchard), then known as DJ Itchy was the youngest UK DMC finalist, ever. Originally from Glasgow, Hudson Mohawke is signed to Warp Records and just released his debut album Butter on their label this October.
You can go listen to his myspace page, OR for another 6 days you can go here and listen to just about everything he’s put out:
Straight outta Brooklyn, upcoming Body Language has a sound that I can get behind. I would paraphrase, but I gotta get back to work, so I’ll just quote this from their FB page
“Busy saving the city from the brick wall arm crossing and the casual head nods, Brooklyn’s own Body Language has risen from the DIY venue basements armed with the kinetic dynamite you would expect from the name. Their original music was born from weekly dance party remixes crafted by Merck Records artists Grant Wheeler and Matt Young, and graced by the soul stylings of Ms. Angelica Bess. Their efforts, which illustrate their arrival in Brooklyn, are delivered in a five track EP called “Speaks” now out on Moodgadget Records.
Since the EP release, Body Language has been burning holes in New York City dance floors appearing with the likes of Passion Pit, School of Seven Bells, Theophilus London, We Have Band, Ninjasonik and Jimmy Edgar. This beat-driven crusade continues with an appearance at the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival featuring the Juan McClean, Designer Drugs and 33 Hz. Listeners should also expect some wonderful contributions from the trio with the hit, “Work this City”, appearing on Ghostly International’s Nocturnal Suite, a free four-part ‘Influences’ DJ Set, as well as a “Speaks” Remix Compilation, featuring the likes of Toro y Moi and Machinedrum.”
If you haven’t seen this yet & if you’ve ever wondered what Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips looks like naked, well, here’s your chance. This was filmed in and around Portland, OR and having lived in Portland for 6 years I can tell you this: you CAN and DO see people biking naked around downtown, & drunk, on certain dates usually around midnight. So this video makes some sort of sense.
