Video: Das Racist – “Girl”

Dancing, hot girls, mullets.

Video: Shad – “It Ain’t Over”

Canadian MC Shad raps over some classic Lenny Kravitz and gets super nostalgic.

Iceland Bound

I finally got my flight rescheduled for this evening, which I wasn’t sure was going to happen in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which has just decimated NYC. Check back through Sunday for my coverage of Iceland Airwaves for Paste Magazine.

Video: Tamaryn – “The Garden”

Can we still talk about shoegaze? I think so.

Sounds: Black Lips – Halloween Mixtape

Sounds: R.L. Grime – Goosebumps Halloween Mixtape

Sounds: Crystal Castles – “Affection”

Another new track from the excellent forthcoming new Crystal Castles album, III, out 11/12.

Video: Hint feat. Profisee – “Watch The Media”

Fresh UK hip-hop, excellent video from Hint and Profisee.


Video: A. Chal – “Roses on Your Silhouette”

Lots of bass.

Video: The Alchemist – “Don Seymour’s Theme”

Teaser for new album, Russian Roulette.

Iceland…. Postponed

I was supposed to be heading off to Iceland today to do some traveling and then cover the spectacular Iceland Airwaves festival, but clearly that ain’t happening. Fingers crossed that I’ll be heading out tomorrow… or Wednesday… Sandy, this shit is weak.

Video: Danny Brown – “Witit” (NSFW)


Video: Paul Banks – “Young Again”

Interpol singer goes back to school. Good song, better than anything on Interpol’s last album.

Video: Masta Killa feat. Kurupt – “Cali Sun”

This West Coast funk sound is a real change-up for Masta Killa, so his new album, Selling My Soul, due out 12/11, should be interesting.

Video: M83 – “Steve McQueen”

I think M83’s videos are just becoming a little too epic.
