Who's go is it?

So, this one is about 2 months late but I just needed to draw attention to the slight return of Basement Jaxx. While each album has been a compounding disappointment after their amazing debut Remedy it seems a set of EPs titled Planet 1 & 2 signals a return to form.

Standout track My Turn features BW favourite Lightspeed Champion, while Nifty is a straightforward big bass banger. Not every track across the two EPs is a classic but it definitely bodes well for future Jaxx albums. Enjoy the fire below.

What does hipster mean?

Recently, rappers have seemed really, really affronted by hipsters. Or specifically, by the 'tight jeans.' It's part offense, part bewilderment. Bishop Lamont thinks tight jeans will prevent you from breathing, and Jigga argues that he won't wear them because his "nuts don't fit." Mickey Factz got all upset when people labelled his tracks hipster-hop, which they only did because he wears pants less than two sizes too large. Fortunately for us, Buff1 has gotten his pals Mike Lee and DJ Graffiti together, they've banged heads, and have delivered a deep, sociological exploration of just what exactly it is to be a hipster. Because - duh - underground rappers from Michigan are experts on it. 

(Incidentally, for those of you worried about it, they're cool with the whole hipster thing as long as "your music is as tight as your jeans.")

Alexis Taylor - Rubbed Out

Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor recently released a solo album, Rubbed Out, through Treader, who make some of the slickest little packages of music ever. I'm still not sure about how I feel about the album as a whole, but there's some nice little tracks. It's all kinda ephemeral and spacey, and sorta has some Beatles and Elliott Smith sounds, but still with a very Hot Chip tone throughout. Treader's site describes it as a collection of "bespoke songs and instrumentals" which is basically a nice way of saying 'he threw some stuff together.' But when you're responsible for the genius of Hot Chip what you can just throw together is about nine million times better than what anyone else can.

Hellzapoppin' (1941)

Hellzapoppin' makes a super strong case for dancing in a movie. This five minutes is why learning Lindy Hop and going to swing bars could be the funnest thing ever in the whole world.

How To Spend Your Pocket Money

OK so it's heaps late news and whatever, but out of principle and because we're total bandits for their shit-hot gasflare pop, BW wants to make everyone aware of Passion Pit's EP "Chunk of Change" dropping. Nothing going around at the moment is as fun. Play them to anyone, and if they say "I don't really like them" you will know that person is boring and tonnes lame. Out now through Frenchkiss, it's $7 asking price might be the biggest bargain of the year - especially tasty given everyone has no money left and we're all going to lose our jobs.

Passion Pit - Cuddle Fuddle



The video to Sleepyhead just got released over at Pitchfork.tv. Have a look below - no CGI is used, which is pretty incredible.

Eric Prydz pres. Pryda - Rakfunk

Yes people, it's happening. Eric Prydz is coming down under. He'll be in town for Shore Thing at Bondi on New Years, along with Underworld and The Presets in what promises to be an absolute stormer and will surely be off the proverbial hook. So if you haven't already got your tix via pre-sale your best bet is to gather round the computer tomorrow (Friday 10th) before noon or you will most likely have to make other plans for New Year's.

To celebrate here is a track from Pryda's latest release, Rakfunk. It is actually a B-Side of 'Evouh' which is also receiving heavy praise. I first heard Rakfunk on Paolo Mojo's EM a few weeks ago and it really did steal the show. I've also included Pjanoo below in case you weren't around here at the start of the year. Enjoy.

It ripples our reflections

Radiohead - Reckoner - by Clement Picon

Reckoner was a favourite track of many from the In Rainbows album. This is the new video for it, and it's everything we've come to expect from Radiohead videos: intricate, complex, beautiful and challenging. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Monotonix And The Art Of Rocking The Fuck Out

Sometimes you're lying there at night unable to get to sleep, pondering life's little mysteries, like: why are we here? Why did they take John Lennon from us, but they won't take Bono? Are the Republicans seriously going to stick with Sarah Palin? If you were wondering about this biggie:
What would Led Zeppelin have sounded like if they were a trio made up of the guys from Death From Above 1979 and one of their friends? And they lived now? And they were from Tel Aviv? And were tonnes into Dov Charney style clothing?
...wonder no more. The answer is Monotonix. And yes they will make you get awesome and naked and drunk.

(ps peep the videos on their Myspace - I haven't seen shit this frantic since DFA1979's shows.)
