Rad Video // SebastiAn – “Embody”

leave a comment »

Off his highly anticipated debut album, Total, SebastiAn delivers his new single, “Embody”, via video form today. Directed by, the oft used video director of Ed Banger Records, So Me, this video is an instant classic. The song certainly has that distinct production unique to SebastiAn, but the overall sound is a lot lighter than I was expecting. Are we to think that his entire album is to sound like this? Or (I’m going out on a limb here) maybe this could be some sort of stunt (remember Threnody) to throw everyone off about the sound of the new LP. Eh? Eh?

 

Be Rad. Enjoy.

Rad Music // New MSTRKRFT

leave a comment »

Ah yes. The music gods have been listening to my pleas – they have blessed me with more tunes from two of my favorite producers.

JFK and Al-P, the duo that make up MSTRKRFT, put out the song “Beards Again” on their website yesterday. It seemingly crashed though, as every time I tried to grab it, there was no connection. Well, their site is back up, so head over there to grab the free track in WAV form. If the overwhelming WAV format isn’t your thing, grab the mp3 right here.

 

“Beards Again” is one hell of a song. It starts with some very Iron Maiden sounding guitars matched with MSTRKRFT’s perfectly paced distorted synths. The campy guitars bring you in to one crazy ass drop 3 minutes in; then the dance party starts. The guitars come back, but in the hard hitting electro style everyone has come to expect from MSTRKRFT.

Their debut LP, The Looks,  is considered by many to be pure electro gold, while some say they missed the mark with their sophomore effort, Fist Of God. Considering this, I don’t think MSTRKRFT are going to be letting anybody down with the next full length. Can’t wait!

Be Rad. Enjoy.

My hands are seriously shaking as I type this…

Two more tracks of the upcoming new album from The Strokes, “Angles,” have leaked onto the interwebs and holy hell they are fucking amazing! Slightly underwhelmed with the “Under Cover of Darkness” and “You’re So Right”, “Macchu Picchu” and “Taken For A Fool” are the light at the end of the tunnel. Grab ’em while you can below!

Angles is going to be amazing!

Two new Banksy pieces have been spotted and cofirmed in Los Angeles.

I’m really diggin’ on the Charlie Brown work. Schulz is probably rolling over in his grave.
