Apparently Gangsta Gibbs and Madlib have been hard at work on a full-length album which should be out some time later this year. If it’s anywhere near as good as what we’ve heard from them so far, it’ll be one of the better hip-hop releases of the year. In the meantime, their latest EP is available over at the Stones Throw Store. You can listen to the title track above for a taste. Also check out the video for “Thuggin,” a title-track cut from their first collaborative EP.
Here’s the video for Monotony, a cut from antifolk musician Willis Earl Beal’s (whom I fell in love with after seeing him perform live some time ago) debut album Acousmatic Sorcery. It’s out now on XL imprint Hot Charity; buy it here and/or stream it below.
As Brooklyn Vegan points out, Laurel Halo is releasing her debut full-length through Hyperdub, a favorite here at COOG Radio [see The FewTure with DJ Arc]. Laurel Halo has released two excellent EP’s, King Felix and Hour Logic. Her new LP, Quarantine drops June 5th, with another EP due sometime between now and then.
Here’s a new track from Big Baby Ghandi, which will be included on his upcoming mixtape, NO 1 2 LOOK UP TO. The track features local Houston favorite, Fat Tony, one of our own COOG Radio DJ’s from this past fall. Both of these artists are signed to Greedhead Music, one of a few labels on The Fader’s list of “Labels to Watch.” So yeahh. Reppin’.
If you dig shoegaze at all, check out this band. If you don’t dig shoegaze, check them out anyways, I bet you’ll like what you hear. For the CD, go to Amazon, it’s cheaper. Likewise, the vinyl’s cheaper directly from the label, Tee Pee.
Hahaha. What I look like a year later re-releasing my last album? Not icey. Bitch I’m icey.
Yeahh, so if you were hoping for a hard copy of Nostalgia, Ultra., too bad. One of the songs to be included on that non-release was “Whip Appeal.” It’s already been taken off of Frank’s soundcloud, but here’s a vimeo version. We’ll see how long this video lasts.
Sunny weather calls for shimmery jimmy-janglin’ guitar rock, and Real Estate make some of the better music in that genre I just made up. This is a B-Side from their single for “Easy,” a highlight off of their album Days, which is being released on vinyl on April 10th. You can pre-order it here.
