Sleigh Bells have unveiled their brand new video for Treats track "Rill Rill". It was directed by Jon Watts, and debuted earlier today over on MTV, and as you can imagine holds a few twists and turns along the way. Blood pours from telephones which looks kinda unusual for a mid day watch. I was taken also a little taken a back too early on in the vid when Derek Miller gets pushed out of a moving car and rolls to an abrupt stop at the side of a dusty long road. Ouch. Check it out up above and note that it's not the MTV vid as us Brits can't watch them, so we thought we'd hunt down one the whole world can enjoy, and we succeeded!
Savage Skulls & Douster have upped this entertaining video for the track "Bad Gal" which features the lovely Robyn too. Check out the video at the top in full and let the craziness ensue. It features a load of action, from car chases through the Pyrenees, wrestlers throwing it down, along with vintage tennis clash, oh and Robyn tango's too just to add to the weirdness. The song is featured on their Get Rich Or Die Trying-EP which is available over here if you like the sound of these guys. Enjoy via Pitchfork.
Wiz Khalifa is soon set to release his Atlantic Records-debut titled Rolling Papers in late March on the 29th. in turn he is doing a little promo and last night dropped in on George Lopez to lay down a solid performance of his track "Black and Yellow". In relation to the relese of his aptly named album he said:
“It’s an appropriate title. It’s called Rolling Papers, like the papers that you roll, the papers that I roll, the papers that we smoke. But it’s deeper than that too. I thought of this before I even started recording the album and before it was a full idea. It’s not just about the weed thing. It’s bigger than that. My career really took off when I started smoking papers."
Check out the performance up top and be sure to watch out for more from Wiz in the coming months as we previously mentioned, a film with him and Snoop could be coming on 4/20. I wonder if it will be Weed related at all?
Take a listen to this track from the 21 year old prodigy Munchi from Rotterdam. Said to be able to make next level tracks "in minutes on headphones and almost amateur software (Acid Pro)" there's quite a bit of hype for this young gun to live up to. He has released his first EP on T&A records which goes by the title, “Murda Sound,” and today you can take a listen to the title track courtesy of T&A Records. The track features none other than M.I.A. who had a very productive 2010 releasing her album along with a few mixtapes towards the end of the year. Check it out below and grab yourself the download and be sure to look out for this whizzkid in the coming month as I have a feelign we'll be seeing a little more of him!
On Monday SKoA fave Mike Skinner AKA The Streets threw up his mixtape titled Cyberspace and Reds for the Internet to enjoy. Preliminarily it was for iPhone users who simply had to download the ‘mike scanner’ app for the iPhone from the apple app store. The app then allowed them to scan the 1st part of the puzzle, which was a barcode located on Mike's recent blog post. After a little treasure hunt and the purchasing of some well known brand soup we got the mixtape. Much to the anger of Blackberry and Android fans.
Today their turn has come and in a new blog post Mike has put up the Deluxe Edition for all of his "android, nokia and blueberry haters". They get to head over HERE and listen to the same mixtape but with "At The Back Of The Line" (feat. joey g-zus) too! How can they continue the hate for Mr Skinner when he offers up such great gifts to his fans. Below listen to the mixtape in full minus the bonus track and to hear that just head over here to check it out.
Mid last year, Wilco's resident guitar shredder Nels Cline revealed that the band were leaving their, at the time, current label Nonesuch Records and were to embark upon their own venture by starting their very own label. Yesterday confirmation came from the band that they indeed had done this and thus dBpm has been born. In a press release the band said that the label will put out all future Wilco releases "and more," and that it will be run by the band's manager, Tony Margherita, out of offices in Easthampton, Massachusetts. Going on to say:
"This is an idea we've discussed for years...We really like doing things ourselves, so having our own label feels pretty natural to me. And, to be working with ANTI- a label that has its roots in a label that was started by a punk rock guy to sell his own records seems like a perfect fit for us."
As well as setting up their own label the boys have announced a short May tour which you can check the dates out for after the jump. Keep your eyes peeled for more news as the band are currently in the studio working on a new LP. Thanks to Pitchfork for the heads up on this.
