Blue Sky Black Death - Carl Sagan (new video!)


If you don't know who Blue Sky Black Death are, then let this be the ultimate intro for you. BSBD have made beats for members of Wu Tang, Hieroglyphics, Jean Grae and many more hip-hop tinged aficionados, but now they're ready and raring to go with their own original efforts. While this falls slightly on the more poppy and electro feel of the genre wheel, we're a-ok with it, because new single, and the subsequent video, for Carl Sagan, is simply that much better than anything else we've heard in the past few weeks.



Enough with the prefacing...who wants to see a really rad video, soundtracked by some super sweet tones, as provided by Alex Chen of Boy in Static? 


Oh, you do? Alright then...


Watch now!

Penguin Prison - Animal Animal (Live on XFM)


It's not all remixes and club thumpers here in the land of the Beast. Sure we've been known to toss a few slow jams, country crooners' tunes and acoustically sentimental cuts out every now and again, and today is no different. Our current crush is Penguin Prison, and rightfully so. With an undeniably awesome "how does he continue to crank out perfect pop songs" appeal, he's got us by the heartstrings with a live rendition of his first foray into our world.



First up, did you know that Penguin Prison, aka Chris Glover, is making his debut performance next week here in NYC? Yeah, he is. Joining Bad Brilliance, Das Racist and Solid Gold, Glover hits Mercury Lounge on April 8. (tickets here) Also, London gets lucky when the dude hits the town on April 21 and 23. Killer.


Now for this sweet premiere. Glover recently jumped on XFM to do a little talk and tune. We're psyched to give you his acoustic live rendition of Animal Animal.
