I Crack Calvary
I Break Horses - Winter Beats.mp3 I guess I have a thing for Swedish ladies that make of center pop. Sue me. This is Marie Linden’s (aka I Break Horses) latests ”Winter Beats” off of the upcoming debut album Hearts. Kaboom.
Lykke Li - Rich Kid Blues.mp3 Lykke Li dropped her second album and I finally had a listen. All in all…good…not great. This one caught my ear, as it is the single. Pretty sure I don’t dig the chorus but something in here (probably the organ) is what I’m about.
Nas is Back
Diamond Flying Animal
Icebird - Going and Going. And Going..mp3 Philly synth heavy weight RJD2 joins forces with philly soul singer Aaron Livingston for, what sounds to be, a fun project.
SD boys talking the talk.

Glacier Milestone - Dissimilar Army
Iceage- Broken Bone.mp3 Iceage - White Rune.mp3 No wave punkers Iceage dropped their debut full length New Brigade earlier in June. 24min slathered with grit, slap and anthems of resistance. A bit of showmanship hidden in there deep. The young Danes doing good.
SBTRKT - Wildfire (Feat Little Dragon).mp3 Rumor is the mysterious UK based SBTRKT will be revealing his identity today. I don’t care. I like the mask and the music is fun…a mix of everything dance in the UK + some 90s R&B and a range of glitch to straight solid beats. His remixes seem to be the talk but the self titled EP rubs me the right way. Just the right amount of...

Great chatting with all the folks who came by to check out our setup. Had a chance to sit in on talks by Al Gore, Spike Lee and Spencer Tunic. All inspiring...
Kreayshawn - Fendi Piranha
Kreayshawn-Gucci Gucci.mp3 Kreayshawn-Rich Whores.mp3 Hyped out of Oakland, Kreayshawn. Gutter punk mom, born the year of the earthquake, friends with Lil’B and Wolf Gang and even a sticking bs rumor of a $1m Columbia signing. Lets see where this goes. I thought this also make a good forum for a tribute to a couple female rappers of Oak Town yesteryear. Conscious Daughters
Emotionlessness - Most Killing
Apathy - Most_Murderous_Music_Freestyle.mp3 I new track off the upcoming Honkey Kong LP by Apathy (8/23). Apathy has been at it for a long while, but I became most familiar with him as part of the Get Busy Committee.
Music and Things I Like - JUNE 11'
I’ll be out at PROMAX here in NYC 6/28-30. Come by and save me from the booth…or at least drop off a card for our “special raffle”. Not sure what were giving out, but something fancy I’m sure. ////////// JST.PRSS.PLY|> June 11’ - A short list this month…along with being way behind. Much better next, I promis. As always, check out...
Just a banger
Death Grips - Guillotine.mp3 Death Grips - Lord of the Game (ft. Mexican Girl).mp3 Death Grips came to me in a dream and have lived in my head ever since. It blew me away when JB sent me a link to my brain made into a mixtape. Zach Hill is rumored involved but who knows. Its raw and good. Listen to the whole tape here.
Carcasses of Pure Liquid Hydrogen and Oxygen -...
Bodies of Water - Open Rhythms Coming in off their soon-to-be-released third album, Bodies of Water’s ‘Open Rythmes’ is clean 60s esque psychedelic pop done right. The band retains a sound that is their own partially by not playing into the esthetic and aging the recording and partially by retaining a voice of authenticity rather then aspiration. The sting beds, meandering...
Music and Things I Like - MAY 11'
JST.PRSS.PLY|> May 11’ - No rhyme or reason to the tracks this month. The craze of NAB was tough to recover from but I still found some things for your ear holes. As always, check out the JST.PRSS.PLY|> page for my ever growing, unorganized, inspiring mix-tape. Some Children - Holy Ghost!.mp3 - all I have to say is Michael McDonald Shabazz Palaces- Blast It - Footage from upcoming...
Swami - Sound System 4.16.11
Swami - Sound System 4.16.11 - download Another installment of John Reis’ aka Swami’s Sound System show from FM94.9. This once a week program should really be syndicated. Who doesn’t want to hear deep rock cuts for an hour a so…once a week. Add to that the banter Swami drops and it’s like a fresh “kick to the dinger”. Fine work ol’chap.
Giggs - Look What the Cat Dragged In Giggs - Hustle On Just feeling these tracks. Everything I’ve heard from Giggs has been pretty dope so far. Seems like he might be ready for state side invasion.
A Few Anklebiters - Faithful Aberration!
Some Children - Holy Ghost! I listend through Holy Ghost!’s newish self-titled album today. While I enjoyed it, it makes for good background music. It didn’t blow my mind, but also didn’t bore me and definitely lent a toe tapper or two. However my heart skipped a beat when I got to the last track, “Some Children”. The sweet closer features Michael McDonald (for...
Agrarian Poop - A Whale of A K.R.I.T.
Country Shit - Big K.R.I.T. Sorry for the lag of posts, I know you’ve been waiting in suspense. I was completely off railed by N.A.B.. 5 days in Vegas does not work well for me. Back now, recovered of sorts, and throwing up a new southern anthem featuring my main man big Bun B and Ludicris. This shows up on the Big K.R.I.T.’s mix tape ReturnOf4Eva - grab it here now!

It was another amazing year in Austin. Had a chance to see many of the bands...
Baths - Hall.mp3 Baths -The Nothing.mp3 My friend at Interscope shot me a group of tix for Cold War Kids, No Age and Baths at Radio City. The venue changed to Terminal 5 and despite my general irritation with the place, I like No Age, have been checking out Baths here and there and was willing to take what Cold War Kids had to offer. My irritation with Terminal 5 remains solidified as walking...
Just needed this in my life right about now. Ratchet down, turn it up. The Dils - Class War.mp3
Swami Sound System - 3.12.11
Rocket From the Crypt’s Speedo aka the mayor of San Diego aka Slasher aka John Reis throws down another Swami Sound System for the masses. Swami - Sound System 3.12.11.MP3
Caught Laurel Halo over at Altered Zones SXSW day party. I hate being inside on nice days, especially when given the chance to escape NY’s winter chill, yet Laurel’s set was well worth it. Spacey, science textured, avant-electro-pop done in a way that feels right. Laurel Halo - Supersymmetry Laurel Halo - Embassy
Achromic Blue Jeans
Stumbled into a White Denim show at the SXSW convention center this year. It felt like a day time cafeteria show in the dorms. The band wasn’t slowed or thrown off at all. Excellent players and fun songs. White Denim - I Start to Run White Denim - Drug
Crystal Shaker - Barbarous Banner
That one chick from that one band and that one show…and those other chicks from those other bands. Glass Tambourine by Wild Flag by Timedoor
