[Download] Marijuana Deathsquads - Daytrotter Session

The midwest loves their supergroups or maybe it's just GAYNGS' member Ryan Olson. For those that have missed out, Marijuana Deathsquads, which originally started as a back up band for rapper P.O.S., consists of P.O.S. himself and his Building Better Bombs bandmate Isaac Gale, Ryan Olson of Gayngs, Har Mar Superstar, Ben Ivascu and Freddy Votel of the defunct '90s cult blues-punk band Cows as well as Doomtree's Mike Mictlan. As Daytrotter states, it's another cast of super friends, with a revolving door/whomever's-in-town-that-night. 

Unlike Ryan's other group GAYNGS smooth Jazzy sound, Deathsquads are more experimental, psychedelic, bizarre and loud. Just the way we like it. Check out their recent Daytrotter session which features 3 new songs from the band. So far the band has only released one official track "John Cage Match" which was featured on MPLS.TV City of Music series and on their label's, Totally Gross National Product, free sampler. You can listen to the full session below and then head over to the Daytrotter site to download the session.

New Bon Iver LP due out in June

Since the release of Emma, Forever Ago three years ago, Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon has been wrapped up in various other projects, including the supergroup GAYNGS and Kanye West's latest album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. So, where does that leave Bon Iver?

While talking with Rolling Stone, Vernon said that the as-of-yet-untitled follow up to the incredible Emma, Forever Ago "is scheduled to come out sometime in June." The album will feature saxophonist Colin Stetson (Tom Waits, Arcade Fire) and pedal-steel guitarist Greg Leisz (Wilco), and will boast "a lush 10-track collage in which each song represents a place." The album's opening track, titled "Perth," and "features a marching drum beat, a childrens’ choir and wailing guitars," while another track, titled "Minnesota Wisconsin," features double bass drums and a distorted bass saxophone. Expect to hear more from Bon Iver in the coming months.

[Download] GAYNGS x Doomtree - 'Affiliyated' (Regrind EP)

The fine folks over at Stereogum just premiered the amazingly awesome GAYNGS x Doomtree remix EP Affiliyated. This EP features 7 tracks taken from midwest super group GAYNGS debut album Relayted and combines them with the awesome hip hop Voltron force that is Doomtree. Read more info on how this awesome creation came together:

To create the GAYNGS’ Regrind EP all of the stems from the bands debut album, Relayted, were arbitrarily named and compiled into a list … [A] collection of producers and musicians … were then instructed to choose only 10, without knowing what songs they came from or what instruments they contained. One could choose anything from four sax solos and six bass lines, to eight keyboards and two background vocals. The combinations that could be chosen were indefinite…the only certainty was that the parts would all be set to the tempo of 69 beats per minute.

From there, the re-grinders were free to chop, pitch-shift, and otherwise pulverize the stems into a new, cohesive song. The only rule was that they must use all 10 stems they were given, and that the tempo must remain at GAYNGS’ standard 69 bpm.
