In Rainbows From the Basement

Recently Radiohead got together in producer Nigel Godrich’s studio to perform their most recent album, In Rainbows, for VH1. View the performance here. I haven’t actually seen it because VH1 has decided to shutout Canadians from viewing any of their content online. THANK YOU VH1.

Despite VH1′s best efforts I have managed to get the entire thing in mp3 for you all, and considering the fact that Radiohead is one of the ugliest bands EVER this might be the best way to experience their performance anyways. I think it’s a lot easier to take a band seriously when everyone in it is ugly, I mean they definitely weren’t put together to market anything – they are too ugly remember! Oh to have the skills of an ugly person who remains in the spotlight for any extended period of time! Anyways…

New J Dilla?

J Dilla might be pulling a Tupac on us here, it’s been a couple years since his death and there seems to always be unreleased material of his popping up. One such track circulating the net recently is Trucks – Dilla’s take on Gary Numan’s Cars. Although the vocals are kinda whateve, the beat is undeniably neck snapping Dilla goodness.

MSTRKRFT make bad music good.

Looking for just the right thing to throw into your cd player onto your ipod to please all the hipsters coming to your BBQ? I present you a collection of remixes by the Canadian duo known as MSTRKRFT. Both dudes were associated in one way or another with the criminally slept-on band, Death From Above 1979 (Jesse was the bassist and Alex produced their second album). I don’t know how they didn’t get more popular… How many bands do you know only have a drummer and a bassist AND the drummer is the lead singer??? BAD ASS.

It is hard to deny their ability to take a mediocre, sometimes downright terrible, song and turn it into a dancefloor hammer. Enjoy the remixes and bonus videos after the jump! Read More

Chem Trails!

The first track from Beck’s 8th studio album, Modern Guilt just hit the net! Production by everybody’s grandma’s favourite producer Dangermouse. This album should be amazing (fingers-crossed it’s not Sea Change Beck and it’s not The Odd Couple Dangermouse).
