In the immortal, self-congratulatory words of MASE, "welcome back!"
I know it's been a while, everybody, but I'll spare you guys the excuses. October is my favorite (and, factually, the best) month of the year, so I thought this would be a good time to dip my toes back into the fold. I've got a mixed bag today; not really looking to say much as I'm still de-cobwebbing the old blog gland. First, a couple brand new ones from me...
Radiohead vs. In Flagranti - "My Iron Incarnation" (Ozton. Mash)
Basement Jaxx vs. Q-Tip - "Twerk & Stop" (Ozton. Mash)
Austin's Learning Secrets have been bringin' it pretty hard over the past few months. The party they threw with Annie Mac was great, and their gig with Holy Ghost this Friday looks to be even better. You get mad respect points in my book as a promoter/promotion company when you seem genuinely knowledgeable about the type of music you promote, and LS leader, Ian Orth's sets are just as much of a draw as his headliners.
Michael Jackson - "Get On The Floor" (Holy Ghost Edit)
Lastly, for a number of reasons, I'm sure nobody needs to be "turned on" to Neon Indian any longer. The new album is great, but I had to post this track up for it's blatant rip of "What a Fool Believes" by the Doobie Brothers. Now, as much as I'd like to, I really have a hard time believing this sample was cleared. Somebody please, enlighten me! I love Vega, and I'm really proud that both of these groups (constructively) come from my hometown - say it ain't so! (And don't give me any of that "fair use" garbage, Gregg Gillis - self-serving though it may be, they don't fall under fair use).
Neon Indian - "Laughing Gas"
