When you think of the Black Lips your first thought wouldn't be that they'd aspire to work with the magic hands of Mark Ronson. However that's exactly what the guys are doing with their latest studio offering. Up top you can take a peek at some footage of the guys in the studio with Mr Ronson. Being the first time the guys had worked with a producer it came as a surprise to most when they chose Ronson to work on their sixth studio album, but check out the insight into the studio uptop. Interesting stuff if you ask me, and I look forward to checking out the album when it's done.
The long awaited fourth album from The Strokes seems to have a solid release date. In an interview with BBC's Zane Lowe, The Strokes' bassist Nikolai Fraiture stated that March 2011 was their goal for the release of the album which he feels "should have been made between Room On Fire and First Impressions Of Earth." The album is currently finished but is in the stages of mixing and perfecting, which makes the March release date very possible. Here's hopin' they follow through with their goal and blow us all away!
"Snoop & Wiz. The new Cheech & Chong" Nuff Said. I could see CuDi on the remix of this. Also rumor has it Snoop and Wiz apparently have a movie coming out on 4/20 with this new jam appearing on the OST for the film. Hmmmmm...interesting. Now if we can just get Red & Meth to finish How High 2.
In 2010, we heard the first newest material from the duo known as Madvillain, indie emcee and producer MF DOOM or DOOM & hip hop/jazz producer Madlib, since the group's 2003 debut album Madvillainy with the Adult Swim presented track "Papermill". Now the boys are back and it looks like we will should be hearing a MV sequel later this year. Stones Throw debuted samples of 2 new tracks from the duo off their latest Stones Throw podcast. Check out "Avalanche" x "Victory Lap" in the player below courtesy of One Thirty BPM.
Remember that episode of "What's Happening" where Rerun and the gang get caught bootlegging a Doobie Brothers show? No? Yeah, I wasn't born around that time either. Anyways, over the last few days i've seen my fair share of some quality show recordings upon the interwebz and thought it would be nice share with you guys.
One, being the full concert audio from last September’s Detroit stop of the Home and Home tour featuring Eminem and Jay-Z.
