black rabbit redux.

get ready cause when 2012 hits you better know how to motherfucking swim. but for real like no one knows how to swim here. #SURVIVEANDPROCREATE

any john updike fans in the  house?

gonna continue repping black rabbit cause there’s only four/five days depending on which city you wake up in.

some tracks today by the electronic artist i’m most excited to see live – Mount Kimbie. Pitchfork might call this “bedroom dubstep,” “post-dubstep,” or whatever…it’s really, really good. if you’re into James Blake you’ll love this.

they’re not playing a DJ set either. proper live set with hardware, synths, drum machines, etc. yes. i would pay RMB260 to see these dudes play by themselves. i paid RMB200 to see Black Rebel Motorcycle Club last night and they fucking. sucked. was just thinking “man, if this was some punk club in LA in the 70s, singer dude would get rocked with so many glass bottles right about now…”

i know i posted “Mayor” before, but it’s so good i gotta re-up cause they’re coming this weekend.

Mount Kimbie – Mayor

One more track that’s not Black Rabbit related, but the beat comes from a Gucci Mane remix, and Gucci Mane is always, always relevant here.  One of my favorites of the past few months, ever since I heard it on the Nguzunguzu postcast for XLR8R. Sorry for the quality, it’s unreleased and comes ripped straight from that podcast.
