Watch: Ross Birdwise – “art under capitalism at best offers us escapism”

This post was originally published on this site

I’m going through some shit. Like, what does it mean to be a good little capitalist, a proper American in these shifting times? I bought some records the other day, and then I was like, but what about [insert famine or war zone here]? I mean, I only spent about twenty bucks (dealz!), but it felt like that twenty bucks could’ve been spent differently. Like I could’ve bought some grub for the homeless mom and kid with the sign by their busted van in the parking lot. But buying records helps the economy churn forward, thereby somehow helping them in the process. Right?

Circle of (capitalist) life. So what the heck, guys — why does it seem that my American values are butting heads with my human values? Am I too cynical? Where do they intersect (because dammit, they have to — right?)?

Sure, I’m oversimplifying, but Ross Birdwise is here to help us understand that no matter what we do, no matter how we direct our dollars, if it’s for entertainment, we’re sticking our heads in the sand. We’re escaping.

So here I am, doing a metaphorical cannonball off the high dive into the deep end of confusion, because the delight of something like Ross Birdwise’s new drunk formalism(s) tape on Orange Milk curdles with self-loathing at the same time, especially when the lead clip is called something like “art under capitalism at best offers us escapism.” Thanks a lot, Ross, for hanging that reminder on your video like a weight around my neck every time I glance at the YouTube!

But if at best I’m trying to escape, what’s the at worst? Introspection. Ah, there it is. Grinding drones, industrial thuds, dissonant sirens, total unease. I don’t feel good about myself, about anything, when I’m listening to this track. And the fans — oh, the constant fans, twirling, twirling, twirling, stop-motion-shudder, twirling… Factory conditions, airplane hangars, solar energy, future. All is ominous. All is monotonous.

But I LOVE it.

And I love the rest of drunk formalism(s), a tapestry of melting circuits and smeared rhythms, played backward in the Black Lodge, played forward in REAL life. Like its title suggests, it’s inebriated, but by golly, it’s trying to wind its way through life in its current state. Anxious, at times uncomfortable, it allows us to explore the constant cloud of apprehension we all find ourselves under. It’s escapism at its finest.

No, wait, it’s NOT just escapism, that’s not what I meant don’t click away yet I’m not done…


BREAKING: Avicii Has Died Suddenly At 28

It is with a heavy heart that I am reporting the passing of Tim Bergling aka Avicii. Avicii has died suddenly at the age of 28 while in the middle eastern country of Oman. While no details around his death have been formally announced, his press manager released this statement: “It is with profound sorrow

RIP: Avicii, Swedish DJ

From Billboard:

Swedish DJ Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, died at age 28 on Friday, April 20, his publicist confirmed.

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” his publicist Diana Baron said in a statement. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

Run the Jewels’ EL-P to score Fonzo, Josh Trank’s Al Capone biopic

This post was originally published on this site

El-P FINALLY has a film to score.

The dystopian beat-making, jewels running, action film proselytizing rapper has been pretty obviously jonesing to add film scoring to his lengthy list of extracurriculars for a while now. He previously made some music for a Blade Runner 2049 trailer and appeared on the Baby Driver soundtrack as part of Run the Jewels, along with Big Boi on the Danger Mouse production “Chase Me.” Run the Jewels’ “Legend Has It” was also used in one of the trailers for Black Panther, but the Run the Jewels 3 cut wasn’t written for that purpose.

Fonzo (which, for better or worse, is NOT a gritty, noirishly dark Happy Days spinoff film centering on a controversial interpretation of Arthur Fonzarelli) is a biopic of Al “Fonzo” Capone, notorious Prohibition-era gangster, the cast of which includes Tom Hardy as Al Capone, Linda Cardellini, Jack Lowden, Matt Dillon, and Kyle MacLachlan (Coop!). The film focuses on Capone’s development of syphilitic dementia during his prison sentence, using the gangster’s psychiatric ailment as the motor of a frame narrative in which Capone will hallucinate memories of his days as a ruthless Chicago bootlegger and crime boss. Cool! (And sorta fucked up!)

It’s being directed by Josh Trank, whose last film was 2015’s Fantastic Four, which I forgot existed till just this second. “Since I was fourteen years old, El-P’s music has been one of the most important creative influences in my life,” Trank said. “There’s literally no greater honor for me than to collaborate with him today and bear witness to this next stage of his artistic journey.”

There you have it, folks: Literally no greater honor. Shepherding underground hip-hop legend El-P into the world of film scoring is THE HIGHLIGHT OF JOSH TRANK’S CAREER THUS FAR.

Premiere: Fotan Laiki x Bloodz Boi – “Dong Leng Cha”

This post was originally published on this site

Almost summer, time to dip out in flip flops and ladle up a cup of that cold lemon tea! Hong Kong’s Fotan Laiki (one half of Cooking Bitchess) and Beijing’s Bloodz Boi (who’s been leading the charge for digital freedom in Beijing since 2013) have just the seasonally appropriate beverage anthem to soundtrack your long nights with “Dong Leng Cha (凍檸茶)” — a cool, crisp, refreshing, light and lilting Mando/Cantorap banger that trills while you chill. 好酸!

“Dong Leng Cha” is the first in a new Singles Club series from Eternal Dragonz — look for them to drip out one new track every month or so from different artists in their networks across Asia. In the mean time the kickoff is ready to trickle down your cilia right now, click play to slake that 4/20 thirst!

Sleep makes 4/20 a little TOO exciting by releasing first new album since 1998 TODAY via Third Man

This post was originally published on this site

WHOA there.

Just…whoa.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, internet: all this hubbub about Sleep releasing the their first NEW ALBUM since fucking 1998 today (April 20) in honor of 4/20 is certainly cool and all…but…

Honestly? I was already totally just 100% planning on listening to Dopesmoker precisely 4.20 times through, like I usually do.

And now, there’s this mammoth new double-album with a goddamn super rad spaceman on the cover called The Sciences from Third Man? And it comes in BOTH a “standard edition 2xLP” and a “limited edition 2xLP” version “available at independent record stores selected by the band themselves”?!?!

Fuck.

NOW I don’t know WHAT to do. 🙁 🙁 🙁

All these new chooooooooices, yo. I can’t even handle it.

Can I just crawl back into bed until tomorrow?
