One year and one day after Burial brought us Truant (featured below), a new 3 track EP is dropping Dec 16th. I finally have something to look forward to that doesn’t involve consumerism or high-fructose corn syrup this month! (via FACT)

And, after not being able to get details straight and embarrassing myself in front of the rockers, so I went. I saw a fantastic new band called Suntalk Saturday night. Rockers with serious chops, I can’t wait to hear them on the radio. I got to interview them after their tight set at the Rockwood, a cozy space just south of Houston St.
1. What is it like being a live band during the EDM boom?
Demetrius - It’s a little intimidating, a little bit. However, it’s also inspiring at the same time because, we believe in our music enough to still put it out. We still feel as if we have something worth giving. We didn’t die down, I know people who say “we can’t go up after that (dj).” I’m still playing burner shows, and I make sure they listen to the music.
Mixmag threw together a great little feature showcasing different genres of music as different sports. It’s pretty spot on, and now I can’t think of Armin Van Buuren without imagining him in volleyball shorts. That and Jay-Z as a cloistered, shady darts champion? Classic.
Volkswagen recently tapped old school stars of electronica Underworld to help them develop an an app that takes data from your VW systems on brakes, gas, steering and creates music with it. That’s right, you can generate Underworld-designed grooves by driving your car. Of course, the app both isn’t out yet, and also seems a terrible way to increase auto-accidents. As the beat gets harder as you get faster, this couldn’t possibly go without incident in the USA. Check out the full tech demo below, for 18min of synthy, electronic goodness & a VW driving around a test track.
Happy Turkey Day! Enjoy the turkey dubstep with your family and don’t forget to gobble down hard today.
It’s totally possible, and it seems that a group of competent writers can get an entire building done in short order. There’s no reason to waste time trying to get the management of one building change its mind or to punish the owners. You find 10 others that agree with your goal already. The public has your attention, use it wisely. A group of Australian taggers show you exactly how easy it can be. Run around, have fun, and film it in HD. Way better than bitching on facebook, and it was just for a spray paint brand ad. We can do better. #rip5pointz
There’s quite a bit going on over the long weekend so you have no excuse to whine about being stuck dealing with your family, as long as you live in limping distance to the 5 boroughs. I’ve got a semi-competent list of quality goods that won’t break the bank. That way, if you need to buy another drink to deal with your family, you don’t have to sell any plasma. I know, I’m a generous soul, once again making it all better with bass. Here they are, ordered by day. Come on out and burn off all of them stuffing-related calories. Pictured above is Hector Moralez, with deep support at an underground venue in Brooklyn. There’s a strong chance this event will be fabulous, and a certainty it’ll have a deep, latin, funky & soulful vibe to it. There aren’t very many of these spaces left in NYC, and at $15.00, you’re paying what I paid when there were more than a decade ago.
