Hey all, while I am no longer posting about music, I have another project for you to check out. We get a comedian to eat a habanero pepper and then tell a weeks worth of hollywood gossip jokes. Take a look for yourself as this weeks host is Timmy Williams from IFC's Whitest Kids U Know. Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Since I will no longer be posting I'd just thought I'd let you know about my friend Corbin's music site Rebuilt Tranny Records. He rips all his music from vinyl records he owns and posts them to listen to, he also adds a loving spoonful of off-the-wall commentary sure to make your head spin. Check him out.

FUTURE TRENDS, has been recently mentioned in NME (here) and Pitchfork (here). Both instances are well deserved and earned. FUTURE TRENDS is Andrew Clark, a fellow cincinnati-an, ohioan, and good friend. He recently played his first show with Enlou (another great Cincy band). Palace of Dust is personal as much as its electronic, as dance-y as it is nostalgic. Some songs will make you remember your first relationships when anything was possible. A single kiss could send you into orbit. Palace of Dust came to me self labeled as "Space Pop" an accurate and telling title. With hand and sweat beats, Andrew makes all these "big hip hop or electronic producers" look like hot garbage. Another thing I must mention is Andrews voice, it pours and drips out like that bottle of chocolate hardshell. Just dont keep this in pantry or fridge, leave it out for everyone to enjoy. My favorite tracks are "Darkness" and "Sometimes Things Don't Match Up". Here.

Long awaited follow up from the great "The Trials of Van Occupanther". I had read articles about this release, and the band made a decision not to make another Van Occupanther, they said they starting listening to a lot of British Folk and it shows in this album. While the songs on this album aren't very much like "Roscoe", they are beautifully textured and layered. Thick like honey and relaxing as a massage. After a couple of listens its clear that after the vocals the drums are what drives the songs. This band continues to surprise me, and is becoming one of my favorites out there. My favorite songs are "Fortune", "Acts Of Man", and "Small Mountain". Here.

A new musical project from one time Roca-Fella records co-owner Damon Dash, working with the Blues Rock band "The Black Keys" to create Blakroc, a hip hop album with the Keys slaying the tracks while rappers such as RZA, Raekwon, Mos Def, and Ol' Dirty Bastard spit. Check it out Here!!!. Good Tracks are "Telling Me Things (feat. RZA)", "Stay Off The F*%$#n’ Flowers (feat. Raekwon)", and "Done Did It (feat. Nicole Wray & NOE)"

If you are a fan of this surrealist sketch comedy show. This album is a must. 49 songs made famous by the show, including covers by Built To Spill and The Shins. My Favorites are the Michael Mcdonald-ish Rolo Tony (Uncut), Marcama, and Come Over. If you dont know of the show, these songs will have no real relevance and not be as funny as they are if you know the skits to which they go with. Part 1, Part 2.

A heavily anticipated follow up to "Devotion", Beach House improves upon their atmospheric vibe. Like a fog rolling in on a North Carolina shore, the music seems to surround you. Each song blends together making the album seem like one long piece of music rather than one song after another. Let the Fog in here (Part 1) (Part 2), my favorite songs "10 Mile Stereo" - the closest to a rocker you will get, the cheery piano of "Used To Be", and the single "Norway" complete with slide guitars.
