New Animal Collective



Animal Collective recently performed at Norway's fantastic Hove Festival along with Jay-Z, St. Vincent, The Cool Kids and others. Videos from the festival are sprouting up on Youtube, including "Daily Routine," a newish Animal Collective song held down by Panda Bear. To watch Animal Collective perform "Dancer" at Hove '08, click here. Hopefully news will rise soon concerning a future Animal Collective release as well as when we can expect to hear the AC remix of Ratatat's "Mirando."

Kid Sister vs. Amanda Blank


So 2008 has been dominated by two female rappers, Kid Sister and Amanda Blank. They each have strong ties to the "indie music community" as Muscles would put it and they're each quite talented...but who really is the best?

Name!
Kid Sister - born Melissa Young - is a name that a lot of people can relate to, but who is Kid Sister really? Well she's J2K from Flosstradamus' Older Sister which clears up why he performs with her, remixes her, and makes cameos in her vids. Kid Sister may not be the most bangable name in the world, but it's a name with morals and you gotta respect that; family comes first with her.
Amanda Blank's real name is Amanda Mallory...what? Two first names? It is pretty fucking cute though and Amanda Blank just flows so easily off the tongue.
Winner: AMANDA BLANK - when you're with a girl you don't want to constantly be thinking about your Kid Sister.

Crew!
Kid Sister is J2K's sister (not to be confused with JFK of MSTRKRFT). She is dating A-Trak who is Kanye's DJ as well as brothers from Dave 1 of Chromeo.
Amanda Blank rolls with Spank Rock and her old pals from Philly and Bmore.
Winner: Kid Sister - if her booming career turns into a dud she has plenty of cushion to fall back on.

Appearance!
[Kid Sister at Coachella]
[J2K hollerin' at Amanda]
Winner: Well the winner is obviously Amanda Blank, she's bringing the sexy back into dirty. I'm not sure if her and J2K are still dating, I'm sure that they are. Weeeiiiirrrdddd crossover, right? Anyways, Kid Sister was much hotter as a blonde in my opinion.

Videos!
Kid Sister: Beeper (feat. The Count and Sinden)

Spank Rock: Loose (feat. Amanda Blank)

Winner: Yeah, I do think that Loose is a much better video, but it's not Amanda's and she, believe it or not, has no official videos of her own. I'm gonna have to give this one to Kid Sister.

I'm not even going to begin to analyze rapping style from both women, so this is where we end our contest. But who will be crowned the queen? Well...looking back at the scoreboard it looks as though we have a tie.

The Winner Is...

SANTOGOLD! She's beautiful, smart, witty and check out her rap stylings in Spank Rock's B.O.O.T.A.Y. along with Illivia.


If you don't agree with the outcome, please attend Rock The Bells this year and let me know what you think.

Flashback! Party Sequence


So I'll admit my irresponsibility when it comes to the Flashback! Party Sequences of the past month, but that will be no more! This week I have a track so hot you'll be glad that it has taken so long to reach your ears. As "long-time" FMLY readers know, I'm a great lover of Diplo - he's the greatest in the game. Recently he dropped a Bmore Tribe Called Quest remix entitled "Brew Barrymore" that has been my night-timing anthem of the past couple of weeks. As usual, my only complaint is of the track's briefness, so I'm including an extremely badass remix by DJ Kue of Rage Against The Machine's "Bulls On Parade."

BONUS:
If Lost is your favorite show on television, then this is for you. FMLY FRNDs over at The Hood Internet really know how to keep mashups interesting and the downtime between seasons of Lost exciting. Check out the Youtube vid for MC Luscious vs. Lost.



Have a great weekend!

South Central Goes Live


Adding an entirely new dimension to the mixtape, South Central have recorded a fantastic live set and uploaded it to Youtube for your viewing pleasure. The video is broken into three parts which I highly recommend watching and/or listening to. It's fascinating to watch a DJ set from behind the stage, but even more so when you see how much work SC put into their unique sound. If you call yourself a fan of electronic music I can not urge you enough to listen to South Central - here is a brand new track, or rather a remix, of the new Sneaky Sound System single, "Pictures." Enjoy! Seriously...

What's On Obama's iPod?



"Barack Obama is a Stevie Wonder geek. In the Democratic presidential candidate's new interview with Rolling Stone editor-in-chief Jann S. Wenner, Obama waxed rhapsodic about his favorite artists, many of whom -- Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Jay-Z -- have shown him love with endorsements.
"If I had one musical hero, it would have to be Stevie Wonder," says Obama, who grew up on Seventies R&B and rock staples including Earth, Wind and Fire, Elton John and the Rolling Stones. "When I was at that point where you start getting involved in music, Stevie had that run with Music of My Mind, Talking Book, Fulfillingness' First Finale and Innervisions, and then Songs in the Key of Life. Those are as brilliant a set of five albums as we've ever seen."
[Rolling Stone]

The democratic nominee has also admitted to enjoying Sheryl Crow, but who can blame him for that? To read the rest of the interview, pick up an issue of July's Rolling Stone Magazine.

Fake Blood "Stuck On Repeat"


Since you were introduced to Little Boots yesterday I think that this is a great time to post this remix. Little Boots is a girl from Liverpool, England who loves keyboards and makes great dance music. Fake Blood is an anonymous electronic musician known for his (or her) killer remixes, make sure you remember this name - Fake Blood is going to be huge. Together, Fake Blood and Little Boots create a beautiful track for the dancefloor. This song is not to be listened to sitting down.

New Party Time 2000


My boy Party Time 2000 has been throwing down some real solid tracks for EUGEE in Chicago, to say the least I'm damn proud of his work. He just sent me this track that I'd like to share with everyone, it's called "Tonight Girl." Clocking in at just over five minutes PT2K sets a landscape suitable for Schneider TM. The variation of vocals and a dense beat make this song a retro dance hit. If you want to get your groove on this week, press play on the PT2K.

Mac Islands



When I was heading over to the Apple store yesterday, I was expecting to not be able to get through the crowd of people at the Apple store to see Islands but as it turns out, everyone has day jobs and no one can go to a midday show on a Wednesday. All the better for me. I got there a few minutes before they were supposed to play but thy didn't end up going on till much later. I easily snatched some front row seats and me and 20 people caught a show of a life time. If you had asked me what I thought of Islands before this show, I wouldn't have had much to tell you either way. I am not a fan of their recordings but I figured I'd check them out for free at the Apple Store anyway. The show started out with a couple jokes which actually got me laughing and they went on to play the most incredible set. This is a band that really loves their music. If you ever have a chance to see them live, don't miss it.

Megapuss rocks!


Photo by Ben High via FADER

Last night Devendra Banhart revealed his new side project Megapuss. The concept behind Megapuss is very simple. Each song takes less than 10 minutes to write and they are all fun, silly, and short. With a small turn out, there was a lot of space to sit and watch just feet away from the band. Devendra wore a belt of penises, Aziz from Human Giant with just the one penis peeking all the way out of his pants. During their set images were shown behind them including several of band members and a couple of Devendra Banhart naked. There's something you won't see at the Hollywood Bowl.




This was one of the most exciting nights of my life for a lot of reasons but this was probably the main reason.

Girl Talk Releases New Album This Week



This is the moment that DJs, industry workers, party-goers and pretty much anyone who has ever taken a breath of a dancefloor has been waiting for. No, not another free Moby concert, but the release of Girl Talk's fourth LP, Feed The Animals.

"I finished it Tuesday night (June 10)," says Greg Gillis aka Girl Talk in an interview with P4k Media, "and the guy who has mastered all my albums is starting the mastering process today. He promised me he'd be done by Monday, so that would give me maybe a couple days to listen to it, but I imagine it will be on the internet by Wednesday or Thursday [June 18 or 19]."

I feel like I'm waiting for 2009's Coachella lineup. For fans of Girl Talk, you know who you are, there is a mystery track on his myspace called "I." Head over there and take a listen to the slower than comprehensible mash of sound. If you keep listening there's a repeated soulful voice belting "Giiiiiirl Taaaaalk." Also, take notice of the completely black MySpace page. What could possibly be in store for our ears? If you were planning on having a party this weekend, no need to hire a DJ. It's time to Girl Talk.

I actually made this mixtape a couple months back to go along with a just released article on IHEARTCOMIX in DAZED & CONFUSED, but it ended not working out for that one (we've made something else instead), so I'm really happy NLLR gave it a home. It's simpler that the over the top production of the IHEARTCOMIX/SCION mixtape, but is a closer representation of how I play live."

Summer Highs With Air France

I posted this on iheartcomix yesterday, have a good read!

The summer solstice is upon us and after picking through the tremendous amount of albums welcoming the season, I'd like to take a quick look at Air France's No Way Down EP (Sincerely Yours). A six song EP clocking in at just over 22 minutes, Air France has once again delivered warm and beautiful music made for road trips, beach days and rooftop parties. The Swedish duo have certainly taken a step in the right direction since last year's (the last week of December '06 counts as January '07 in my book) On Trade Winds EP now verging onto a Saint Etienne meets The Field with a touch of Apparat kind of vibe. Curious? Check out "Collapsing At Your Doorstep" and take it from there. If you find yourself giving the thumbs up, make sure to check out Boat Club as well. Overall, my only complaint about Air France is that their releases are too short; the music is so lush that you want to overwhelm yourself in their sound which is difficult to do within a half hour. You can purchase the No Way Down EP here and watch an unrelated commercial directed by Michel Gondry for Air France - the airline - here.

Esau Mwamwaya Finishes Album With M.I.A., Vampire Weekend And Others

[Esau with Ezra of Vampire Weekend]

Malawi by-way-of London musician Esau Mwamwaya is certainly a name to pay attention to in 2008. Announced via a MySpace blog by Radioclit member Johan, the album that EVERYONE has been waiting for is complete, "hopefully a good lisence deal will be in place very soon and the madness can begin!!" The album features collaborations with Santogold, M.I.A. and Vampire Weekend just to name a few, I can't wait to hear more as the album finds a release. If you're in London or will be tomorrow, make sure to stop by the Notting Mill Arts Club to check out Radioclit and Esau Mwamwaya live.



What I love so much about Esau are his uplifting and inspiring interpretations of contemporary music. The tracks below feature Esau singing over the beats of Architecture In Helsinki's "Heart It Races" and M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes." Sporting one of the smoothest voices I've ever heard, it's quite alright that I have no clue what he is saying.

Favorite Albums of '08 (so far)


Chris over at Gorilla vs Bear really knows how to get a blog party started; in the mid-year he's asked many of his friends what they're favorite album of '08 is, it's no surprise how many responded. Here are just several, you can read the rest and download mentioned MP3's right here.

Edward Droste, Grizzly Bear:

that's a no brainer for me! beach house, devotion. I've listened to this album since I got it in the fall non stop until now. They rapidly climbed my most played tracks on iTunes to overtake many of my favorite songs. This is the type of music that just grows and ages with each listen in the best way possible. I never tire of it and I'm sure that 10 years down the road I'll appreciate it as much as I do now.

Bradford Cox, Atlas Sound/Deerhunter:

my album of the year so far would be Animal Collective's Water Curses EP. I think its really enigmatic. "Cobwebs" might be my favorite thing I've heard in the past 5 years. The last song sounds great in your bedroom in the late afternoon with the windows open. The most important band of our generation and I mean that with all sincerity.

Noah Lennox, Panda Bear/Animal Collective:

my favorite album this year (so far) is the erykah badu one called new amerykah: part 1 (4th world war). animal collective was in mississippi in january or so and wed watch a lot of vh1 soul when we werent working on something and for a stretch of a couple of days erykah was always on. sometimes it was a video but one time i saw kind of a performance where she was doing a bunch of new songs and i really liked them and i liked the way she performed them a lot. wed see the honey video all the time and i really liked that and im really psyched that its just an added bonus track on the album. all the songs go together well but theyre also all kind of different. theres something strange that i cant quite put my finger on but all the songs go down easy if you know what i mean. the music feels very personal and real and i like that.

XXXChange, Spank Rock/Fully Fitted:

i dunno if this is super obvious or what but I've been super into what i've heard of the Lykke Li stuff. the albums not on itunes yet where i get most of my music but i found this one: "I'm Good. I'm Gone" floating around on the internet somewhere. soooooooo good. love the quality of the recording/production too! you can actually hear the room!
also on the subject of girls with cool accents:
http://www.myspace.com/mysoko
her whole thing feels a little twee but her cover of the teenagers "love no" is awesome.

Annie Clark, St. Vincent:

Man Man's Rabbit Habbits. man, man man own psychosexual dirtdance this album. I love this band...I saw them at coachella and they had b boy painted drums. So cool in my book.

Diplo:

santogold, black lips, jon dahlback, carter 3 (not really), al green - lay it down

Bethany, Pocahaunted:

Vivian Girls, self titled. The songs are so fucking catchy that literally after I listen to them, I am singing them for days. And my dad once told me that you know a song is a hit if it gets stuck in your head. The song "Tell the World" is like the best thing I've heard since the Ronettes "I Wish I Never Saw The Sunshine." I think they're amazing women, making really fun music. and their harmonies, oh god their harmonies.

i guess as far as 2007 goes--"graduate" by kanye west. kind of fucking amazing. i guess you could count this, because literally i JUST heard this album in it's entirety like a week ago. that song "flashing lights" is fucking perfect. AND "champion" samples Steely Dan, so dude...seriously.

and then--gotta shout out to my favorite man of all time, my dream husband--the boss. I think that "Magic" is what you'd expect from Bruce at this age, but I still loved it. "Girls in Their Summer Clothes" is about to be the anthem of my summer. This album is no "Greetings from Asbury Park," but it does the trick, and I'm really proud of my man...

Josh Block, White Denim:

I really love the new Spiritualized record a lot, but it hasn't had enough time to sink in for me to call it my most listened to record this year. With that in mind, The George Jones Box Set "She Thinks I Still Care" that came out in November of 07 (practically 08 for me) has been in heavy rotation in the player right next to Robert Wyatt's "Comicopera" that came out one month before it. Both records are just my speed.

Evan Mast, RATATAT:

my favorite so far is easily springwater's self titled. its an early 70s instrumental album made by a guy named phil cordell in his home studio. loads of guitar layers and beautiful melodies. apparently one of the tracks was a top 5 hit in the UK. somebody recommended this to me saying that it sounded like the 70s version of ratatat - and i have to admit, there's actually a pretty strong resemblance in some ways. its amazing that i'm only discovering this record now.

Jared Van Fleet, Voxtrot/Sparrow House:

there is an album i've been listening to a lot this year, but i guess it's not new for most people... townes van zandt's our mother the mountain. for me, van zandt's songs, performances, and production all reach their apex at the same time with this record. the result is a sound that is at once dark and hopeful, orchestrated and minimal, bitter and sweet. of the lesser-known tracks, check out "second lover's song". also, thanks to whoever accidentally left this in my car a few months ago.

Pablo Díaz-Reixa, El Guincho:

my favorite album so far from 2008 is Escuela de Zebras by Joe Crepúsculo. It is a guy from Barcelona who writes amazing lyrics and sings in a very particular way over really good backing tracks made of synths, keyboards, rythm machines and sometimes, guitars. It's brilliant. From old stuff I've been enjoying Totó La Momposina a lot, the first 2 MC Solaar records and listening back again and again to Cinema Transcendental by Caetano Veloso. I saw Animal Collective play last weekend at Primavera Sound and their new songs are SO GOOD. They sounded so perfect and how they sync the lights with the sound, the best. Not also the new songs, but the way they played old stuff that was really clever and inspiring too. The Dirty Projectors were really good too. Beautiful guitar sounds. Also I've been listening a lot to a Mad Decent cumbia podcast, some pretty awesome tunes in it. And The Ruby Suns record too, can't wait to see them play live cause I missed them at SXSW. I don't know, that is all I can remember from last weeks.

As I stated in the beginning of this post, you can head over to Gorilla vs Bear to read more from Bodies of Water and Love Is All as well as download MP3's that the artists have mentioned.

I feel like for the past few days, all I have been posting is info on brand new albums from large bands. Well to keep that flow, AC/DC has signed a contract with Wal-Mart for an exclusive release on their next album set for late 2008. In other music news, Franz Ferdinand has put up some interesting noises on their website that could very well be loops from their third album tentatively due out this fall, it has "an african feel." Take a listen here, if this is what we can expect from Franz Ferdinand then I am anxiously looking forward to this new album.
