Recap: The Fool's Gold and Jelly Pool Party Was, In Fact, Not The Last One

And damn it, I'm psyched as psyched can be that we've got one more week to revel in the radness that is this summer's Jelly Pool Party events, down at the Williamsburg Waterfront. After major OSA vs Jelly eFisticuffs went down, I awakened this past Sunday morning to news that next week's Delorean and Dominique Young Unique-featuring event is back on. Hooray! But before we get too far ahead, let's take a lil' looksy at the weekend that was: rain, rum, record labels and all.



Fool's Gold had the distinguishing honor of curating the day's lineup, and what better way to do so than with a ton of their friends and, literally, family. Chromeo (half made of the other brother Macklovitch, he who heads up the label...A-Trak), Kid Sister (A's girl), The Suzan and Telephoned rounded out the bill, with deck destroyer Kingdom offering up the in-betwixt set spins.


The rain delayed everything just a smidge, but the warm confines of the All Saints Pub once again proved a proper breeding ground for afternoon shenanigans, high fives, hollering at hot contingents, and giving us good reason to smile and toss 'em back in anticipation of next week's sayonara soiree. Also, we know who that TBA guest is. You're probably going to want to be in attendance.


Full set of pictures from this past Sunday's Pool Party can be viewed here. And yeah, they're all from behind and/or in All Saints cause I didnt feel like getting dropped on with precipitation. Baby Beast.

Telephoned - Keep Their Heads Ringin' (free mixtape!)

Fool’s Gold’s dynamic duo, Telephoned, have put together a seriously kickass new mixtape, Keep Their Heads Ringin, just in time for their opening slot on Chromeo’s US tour (which kicked off this week with shows in DC and Philly, before hitting Bowery Ballroom tonight). The mixtape gives listeners a perfect taste of the new sounds that Maggie Horn and Sammy Bananas have woven into their repertoire of party starting not-quite-cover songs.

Telephoned Release Debut EP Today!

With a pristine ear for all things rad and wonderful, Telephoned create the kind of music that is easily accessible, widely acclaimed and generally speaking, a whole ball of dance floor fun. Calling the Fool's Gold label home, the pair of Sammy Bananas and Maggie Horn are primed to take over your playlists with their self-titled debut, which sees an official release today!


Last week, Telephoned threw out an exclusive mixtape to ready us for the release of the EP. Their Off the Hook compilation can be downloaded in its entirety here, and it includes slices and dices of tracks you'll find in full as below.


Telephoned's "not quite remixes or covers" are instantly addictive and massively charming. Each cut is better than the next, turning dance floor staples into funky anthems that transcend genres. Their self titled EP continues to turn pop into new-school standards, putting a fresh spin on party music.

1. Dancin On Me (featuring Jahdan Blakkamoore) 2. Turn My Swag On (featuring Teli of Ninjasonik) 3. Rockin That Thang 4. Pop Champagne 5. Can't Believe It The EP is available now. Buy it here like I did...see, proof of purchase, yo! Tomorrow, Telephoned will celebrate their EP release at Ella (9 Avenue A). The event is free and starts at 10pm, so I better see all your funky butts there!

Beastly Bits #7

Sorry this is a bit late...but for once, I decided to sleep in (all the way til 7am!) and then it was straight to work for a 2 hour meeting. But hey, our slight delays don't downgrade the level of radness we've got below.


So here we go,...it's not breakfast, it's brunch. Either way, I'm starving for food and new tunes, so let's get rolling.


Dragonette joins Little Boots and Fan Death on their North American tour. Should be a pretty fly time. Score a ticket here. The XX and Ponytail are the newest additions to the Matt Groening-curated ATP Festival. We all know and love the former, but if you don't know the Baltimore pop band, I suggest you start listening immediately. My boys, Electrolightz, are back with another fantastic fix. This time, they take Diddy's new "supergroup", Dirty Money, and their single Angels and take it for a whirlwind spin. It's a free download below. Telephoned (the funky duo of Sammy Bananas and Maggie Horn) are prepping for the release of their first EP next week. To celebrate, they're giving away a free mixtape which has been rocking my thang for the past 2 days. Grab it here. Today only, Tina Turner's album, Tina!, is available for less than three bucks. Amazon has the exclusive, so get it here if you're a Turner lover like me!
