Having been absent from the web for a good amount of time I have sort of neglected the blog section of Terroreyes, please allow me this opportunity to catch up on a few things… I’ve been touring with Fang Island and Adebisi Shank for the past 40 days, which doesn’t lend much time to keeping up on the ‘lo blog-o-shpere. That being said, a couple of things have dropped recently I want to mention. Maybe you have seen / heard a few of them already, but that’s okay, you can revisit them, right?
Lets start with this dude Antwon.
Antwon is a San Jose, CA based emcee that has been dropping some great joints recently (He also happens to have one of my favorite Twitter accounts). Antwon’s most recent release END OF EARTH boasts production from the likes of Pictureplane, Lil Ugly Mane, Big Baby Ganghi and a plethora of other heavy hitters. Without getting overly cheesy as to why this record is great, why don’t I just shut up, and you just give it a listen. Don’t sleep on this dude.
I would recommend starting at “Lap of Luxery”. Watch the simple yet dynamic music video for the track below:
Also, here is the video for “LIVING EVERY DREAM” featuring Pictureplane.
I’ve also really been enjoying this new Krallice LP Years Past Matter.
It’s a fairly dense black metal LP, and there is allot to be said about it. I feel like Anthony Fantano hit the nail on the head with his review of this LP. Which, no doubt is way more entertaining than reading me babble about it. It’s a fairly relentless listen, but it is cool to hear Mick Barr getting a bit more experimental with this project (because if you have been keeping up with any of his other projects recently, you’ll know that he’s been getting pretty abstract. Of course, I mean that in the best way possible.).
C Plus and Lee Bannon have dropped another music video for the track “Real Estate” off their excellent recently released collab LP YOUNG CHAMPIONS. The video, directed by Erick Lee, fits that vibe of the track perfectly and almost reminds me of something Feel Good Lost would create, except, it’s for a rap track. Watch the video below and be sure to download YOUNG CHAMPIONS if you have yet to do so here.
Death Grips have dropped a new track to wrap up this summers Adult Swim Singles Series entitles “@Deathgripz”. A title which can only be interpreted as an ode to their love of social media and fan engagement. The track is supposedly a leftover from their excellent LP The Money Store.
Speaking of Death Grips, have you all seen this bizarre new interactive music video for the track “I’ve Seen Footage”? It utilizes 50+ different camera angles and allows players to switch between angles and interact with different characters within the video. Although, the video, produced by MTV, may not be an official Death Grips video at all. I mean, there is already a music video for that track, and, the interactive version features frolicking white young adolescents at a backyard pool party graced with bouquets of origami daisies folded out of $20 bills.
But I mean, yeah, that seems like something Death Grips would be into having their paranoia inducing punk rap track soundtrack, right?… Imagine Zach, Andy and Stefan sitting around at a Macbook Pro™ playing this music video, giggling to themselves that they are now the pingpong playing bikini girl with a super soaker. Seems like an accurate mental image. A+ for exclusion, F+ for creativity. Click here to be a virtual partying BMX jock. Stay ‘noided, ping bong babe.
Boyfrndz is an Austin, TX based indie rock outfit that have been chipping away for a while now. Their new LP All Day Pass is downright excellent. I had the privillege to catch them open for Fang Island at The Mohawk in Austin back in August and I will tell you, they do not disappoint live. Download their All Day Pass here for the low low price of whatever you want. Keep an ear out for these guys, I have a feeling 2013 is going to be a big year for them.
King Dude has recently dropped a new music video for the track “Jesus In The Courtyard” (Dr. Angel Ceballos.) off Dude’s fourthcoming LP “Burning Daylight” available October 16th via Dais. Despite the name, King Dude crafts some fairly interesting dark and doomy folk tracks. I’m loving this track and video and am very much looking forward to this release.
And, I guess last but not least, this may or may not have happened:
(It didn’t really happen.)
