Beastly Bits #93

What's this? A normal installation of the bits?




I woke up super early since I'm bouncing out of the office early again today, to go do THIS. So for my early alarm efforts, I'm bothering you to all say thanks by tuning in. It's not hard...you're probably already going to be at your computer today at 4pm, so it's like, a simple click and you've entered the radness.


Holy crap, Breakbot's Baby I'm Yours video is amazing. Over 2000 watercolors went into producing it. link


Video of The Strokes, er Venison (?), playing Last Nite at their London gig two nights ago. link

Beastly Bits #69

It's beastly bits nombre soixante-neuf! Not sure why I'm feeling the foreign inflections today...



...maybe it's that I just need to class this joint up a touch? Nah...we're still kicking it rad style. Let's do this.


Yeasayer played Webster Hall two nights ago. Review is over at EastVillageRadio.com. link

Gorillaz - Superfast Jellyfish (Toddla T Remix)

Leave it to Annie Mac to get the goods and dish 'em out well before anyone else has 'em. The legendary Brit DJ and radio-show host is tossing out an exclusive mix of an already killer tune, so yeah, our admiration for her just continues to grow. It also helps that at SXSW she called me "so awesome". Grin.



If you aren't already signed up for Annie's mailing list and as a member of her web site, then I suggest you do so here. And here's why.


Today, she dropped Toddla T's remix of Gorillaz' Superfast Jellyfish and the only way you would've known about it was by joining eForces with Ms. Mac. See, that's how we found out about the exclusive download. And now we're sharing it with you.


But really...you should still go sign up. That way, it cuts down on my work of re-dishing this radness out to all of you. High fives!

Beastly Bits #55

Last night was pretty rad...and more on that later. But for now, there are bits to be beasted and there's no stopping us now.



Double numbers today...so everyone gets a high 5 and a "how do you do!" And this awesome news...


LCD Soundsystem's long awaited album, This is Happening, leaked last night, well before the May 17 release date. We'd be dumb to host it (so we're not, duh!), but with a little sleuthing, you can find it. The band played a sold out show at Webster Hall last night. Check out pics and a review here.


Supergrass broke up. Bummer. Read more on the split here.


Damon Albarn recruits Liam Gallagher's bandmember for Gorillaz. Interesting! Read up on the acquisiton at this link.

Gorillaz - Plastic Beach (now streaming on NPR!)

Gorillaz, the brainchild of Blur frontman Damon Albarn and comic-book artist Jamie Hewlett, are set to release their 3rd studio album, Plastic Beach, on March 9. The virtual band's upcoming offering has easily been one of th emost hyped efforts of 2010, thanks to a generous dose of teasers and trailers from the English outfit.


Much of the diversity in the band's sound sound can be attributed to their constantly expanding group of collaborators. The original musical lineup — as heard on 2001's Gorillaz — blended the talents of Albarn and Dan "The Automator" Nakamura, as well as Kid Koala, Del tha Funkee Homosapien, Cibo Matto's Miho Hatori and Tom Tom Club's Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz. 

Plastic Beach continues this trend, with Albarn bringing in an impressive roster of musical contributors: Snoop Dogg, Bobby Womack, Lou Reed, Mos Def, Super Furry Animals' Gruff Rhys, Little Dragon, The Lebanese National Orchestra for Oriental Arabic Music, and many more. 

Now, a week before the official album release, the blokes have dished out their album to NPR, for the esteemed channel to stream in it's entirety. Go and listen here!

Gorillaz - Stylo (Death Metal Disco Scene Remix)


It's no lie that our Beastly-ears love everything that Death Metal Disco Scene have been pumping out. Whether it's a mix of Lily Allen or Zambri (note: their w/Somebody rub is one of our fave fixes of 2009), David Billing and Scorch Shepherd continue to keep us grooving and grinning.



Earlier this week, a stream of DMDS' stunningly-thumping and mega rad remix of Gorillaz Stylo was made available. Now, in conjunction with our pal Faisal over at OhhCrapp!, we're pleased as punch to simultaneously offer up the high-qual mp3 for all to enjoy.


With a number of subpar Stylo mixes floating around, DMDS are able to cut through the clutter with a nearly 8-minute epic trek through echoey disco beats and an extraordinary instrumental buildup leading into the piercing vocals shared by Damon Albarn and Bobby Womack.


As a bonus, we're treating you to another DMDS slice of slickness. Not only do they mix other's masterpieces, but their original tracks are spot on as well! Enjoy The Hooks' fix of Death Metal Disco Scene's The Dead.

Gorillaz Minimix for Annie Mac Show

This past Friday, Annie Mac kicked off her first February show in a major way. Guest A-Trak called in to chat shop, Riva Starr popped over with an essential mix and DJ Kofi from Gorillaz [Soundsystem] took control of the 5-minute minimix.


With their upcoming album, Plastic Beach, garnering all sorts of fan support, with but a single track out for listening, Gorillaz are poised to have our feet tapping to their cartoon beats yet again. Stylo is a finely-crafted tune, with a set of urgent vocals from Mos Def and Bobby Womack.

Not surprisingly, DJ Kofi uses the single within the mix. Think you know what else he drops in? Give it a listen below, along with a remix of said song.
