Thousands of people flocked to the internet when they were watching the new Aaliyah biopic and condemned it. Here’s something involving Aaliyah that will not be condemned (at least I hope it will not be): a new mix of some of her best songs as put together by DJ Dave Dolla. This is sure to satisfy like a box of Snickers.
Infuze has done a remix of a song that features Beginners. It’s “Mystery Song” by Bassnectar, which will be as sweet as nectar once you nibble on the bass frequencies, the meat of the matter, the proof of the pepper. The song can be heard on Bassnectar’s Noise Vs. Beauty Remixes album.
J Scrilla, Casito and Grussle are back together as Inner Loop and they’ve just released a new album called Silk Road. It is an ensemble featuring a number of guests, including Lyriciss, Wais P, G-Two, Kingpen Slim, and many more. You can stream the album above or if you’d like to know how one of the songs transforms into a visual medium, check out the video below for “Sugarcrisp”, which has nothing to do with breakfast cereal. Silk Road will be out next week Tuesday (November 25th.)
Florida rapper Lynx will be releasing an EP very soon called Prisoner Of Society but he’s allowing people to hear one of its tracks, a song he produced himself called “Voices”. Hear his voice (metaphorically and realistically) right now.
The name may sound like a duo or group, but Faith & Fury is the name Fiona Renshaw uses, who brings in her love of glam rock with pop, and is said to make music that is “Tarantino-esque”, whatever that means. She’s about to release an album called Lotus Eater and you’re now here to hear its title track.
Not sure if Rico Rich is making a product endorsement, talking about a certain time in his history, or if it’s a mixture of both but “Air Max ’97s” could easily be about a loaf of bread and how to keep it warm and good. That may be possible but most likely not so if you’re a fan of Rich, you’ll think this song is full of the riches you’ve come to expect from him. The song is for free, while supplies last.
If you’ve been a Melvins fan as I have, you most likely already have the original pressings of what will be reissued. The exception is that you’re not going to have these specific pressings, which will be unique in this configuration.
The records that will be released are their second album Ozma, their third album Bullhead, their fourth album Lysol, along with the EP that came before Bullhead, the awesome Eggnog:
The new reissues from Boner are being released as two sets of two-record sets. This means Ozma and Bullhead will be released as one set, while Eggnog and Lysol, now called Lice-All due to the lawsuit, will be together as one. It may have come off odd to join these albums together opposed to Ozma with Eggnog or Bullhead and Lice-All but in many ways they’re fitting too, so that’s what fans will deal with. The new double records will be packaged with gatefold sleeves, featuring old photos of the band along with the original cover artwork. These sets will be out in the new year on January 20th. You may pre-order them below via Amazon.
“My Ears Are Ringing” may be something you say on a regular basis when you feel someone is talking about you, but maybe the people who are talking about you are a band from Portland named Sama Dams. The three piece group consisting of Lisa Adams, Sam “I’m not the former mayor of Portland” Adams, and Chris Hermsen and together they create bold and daring music that may sound comfortable but can be unpredictable at the same time, if you allow it to be. Have a listen to the song with the phrase within its title, “My Ears Are Ringing”, nicely animated by David O’Brien. As for the band name, Sama Dams is a nice way of mentioning lead vocalist Sam Adams without him being the one to blame, as they are a group, he’s not just the sole force. Make them your favorites now and throughout 2015.
Dreaming Bull are a duo out of L.A. who are fascinated with mixing up soul with a garage edge, you may want to call it as gritty as early Funkadelic. They’ve made a video for their song “Feed Us” but you may be the one who are going to be fed with their music. Allow it and them to be your new sound addiction.
This may sound like a complex equation so follow me for just a moment. Theory Hazit did a song called “It’s So Sweet”. It features rapper LMNO and some turntable help from DJ PA. The song is from Theory’s Modern Marvels album on Illect, but this mix was done by Soulseize so if you liked the original, you’re sure to be into this new version too.
