OK so this last week has been pretty dope for Atlas Sound/Deerhunter fans..... Bradford Cox has released three volumes of his bedroom recorded mix-tapes, For Free!!! It's kinda ridiculous. That brings us to a grand total of 41 songs..... That's a 41 song bombshell that this kid just dropped on the world. I mean seriously if you got all that music stored up inside, you gotta get it out somehow.Thanks for the jams string-bean.
Here's a couple links to homeboys blog where you can download that shizz. Plus here's a track I dig from the most recent mix....
Seriously bro John Lennon called he wants his voice back.

It's really hard to describe and recreate the effects of certain drugs..... I think this new video for the song Hawaii does a pretty good job. There's always that all encompassing love that happens in the middle of the whole thing where you just feel like everything is connected to you and it usually ends with that enlightened state of euphoria where words do little to describe any feeling or realization that you might have just had (which I think is captured in the last few frames on the last girls face)..... Anywho I love this song and this band and this video is pretty rad too.

And Scruffles, Travis Trevisan from tape deck's new side project, will be there along with Grand Tarantula. Shit's gonna get so nutty. But to hold you over till tomorrow check out this rad video of New Mexico preforming "Case Closed". See you at Tin Can SD.

Last night was the release of Spike Jonze video for the Arcade fire's jam, "The Suburbs". He paints a very beautiful picture filled with longing and love that can be found much easier being a teen under the shelter of the suburbs. He does a great job of tearing down the suburban world and bringing real life problems into the surroundings of this group of lovable kids. I can't stop watching this.
And here's some older footage of them killing it live in 2003. There's no question why these guys sell more albums than everyone else.

San Diego's new garage thunder is TRAP GOLD. There's a little bit of fire goin through the air in my house right now cause I've had this song on repeat for the majority of the day. Pick up their EP for free ,cause they're just that rad. Seriously this song makes me wanna rob a bank and drink whisky and shoot guns and get into fights and flex my mucsles and......... well you get the point.
TRAP GOLD Hey Boy (use your big words)
Last Thursday night Jeff Goldblum pulled off the raddest performance I've seen him do since Space the infinite frontier. Who knew he could slay it on the piano? And is it just me or is Biz Markie just a huge ass Tracy Morgan?
And I gotta throw this jam in there cause I've been goin a lil Jimmy crazy. This song is so effin dope!!!

Oh man I don't even know where to start with this video. Things have been evolving so fast in music over the last few years that anything is possible. Musical talent coupled with insane technical neediness and some crazy awesome ass shit can happen. Watch Glasser geek out in this explanation for the song "Treasury of we"

San Diego has been holding it's own in the music scene over the last few months and that train isn't about to stop anytime soon. TV Girl has been getting some recognition outside of SD. With their melodic feel good jams that would be best enjoyed on a moon lit beach with wine stained teeth and a pretty girl, you can't go wrong. Pick up some of their tunes for free here and check out "If you want it", after the jump.

If I was Katy Perry's Dad I would have lodged a bullet in my brain, like, forever ago. I mean shit you're really just gonna straight make a song about how you get shit faced on the beach and all you wanna do is get dicked-up by some dude who looks like his name should be Muscles. Keep it to yourself sweetie, your pops is gonna have a heart attack. Not to mention your like the only chick in history to get kicked off of sesame street for looking too much like a whore and begging to change your clothes in front of fucking Elmo........ But luckily for me I'm not Katy's dad so I think that this shit is super comedy. Keep up the good work.
PS. You're Welcome Duffy

I've been crossing my fingers that the crew over at yours truly would do a live sesh with Warpaint. Guess what, it's finally happened. These girls have been flooring me for a little while now and I'm slowly becoming obsessed with the sound that they are becoming. I've been heartbroken since the 2007 break up of my favorite all girl band Electrelane and this has been a nice stitch towards the open wound, not to mention these girls are pretty easy on the eyes.

The cat's over at Pogo never cease to amaze with their video mash-ups. This one in particular is crazy impressive. I definitely have a special place in my heart for the film UP. I really like that they decided to use the little boys voice as the lead for the song. I feel that by doing so it absolutely represents the wonder and magic that is found in the film..... Enjoy

This video was brought to my attention earlier today, by my friend Jen, and it got me all types of excited for next years Coachella. I heard a rumor that Outkast is gonna be there. Can you even imagine? If that happens I'll be front row for "Hey ya" Slamin down big time with hella broads. Peep this dope ass footage directed by Sam O' Hare...... It feels like your watching the SIMS.
TOTEM, you guys best be doin your pinkie exercises!!!!

So a while back my good friend Tommy B and I decided to start a band called Full blown man sized baby dick. The deal is that we can only make songs on the spot, and usually only after a few drinks. They mostly consist of me playing guitar and Tommy rapping about two randomly picked subjects. In this particular jam session the subject matter is buttholes and Mexican baseball. And I should add that the back up vocals are by my good friend Ryan Hume. Please enjoy.
I'm Fuckin in
PS. Thanks to Rob Kent for recording us!

So I've been compiling an end of the year mix for a lil while now and I came up with way too many songs. So I pulled out 20 of those jams at random. I'm pretty stoked on the outcome and I think I might make another one with the rest of the years hits but for now enjoy More Yesness Vol. 1. And peep the cover art I made, I'm pretty sure it's a cracked out tooth fairy but it can be whatever you want....... Enjoy!
Click here to download More Yesness Vol. 1
PS. The tracks might load out of order cause itunes is retarded but you'll get the point
