Blood Orange Uncle Ace (a/jus/ted Remix)

Dev Hayes aka Blood Orange, is the epitome of what you imagine the music scene in New York is like… (and actually is). I am shamelessly will forever be a huge fan. One of his sultry, guitar-laden creations off Cupid Deluxe, “Uncle Ace,” just exudes sexy, late night vibes.

The rework by Brooklyn production duo a/jus/ted (Eddie Mars and Justin Strauss) which dropped a few days ago, is a dark deep house flip— one that beckons to you, whispering, “Meet me on the dancefloor.” Keep this one on repeat to ensure to stay put under those glimmering lights all night long. So hawt. 

Dev wants you to know you can now buy the first official Blood Orange remixes featuring Kindness, A/JUST/TED & Robert Owens now on iTunes.

Phony Ppl Told You So. + Cop Scame.

GITNB’s Acts To Catch at CMJ 2012: Phony Ppl 

image

CMJ 2012 is all about the underground hip hop this year. With crews from East to West including Haleek Maul, ASAP Ty Beats, Curtain$, Flatbush Zombies, Cities Aviv and loads more making an appearance at this year’s fest, it’s going to be a jam-packed year for beat makers and lyricists to bring the heat to a fest that is usually swarming with mediocre indie rock acts.

Literally #1 on my list of hip hop acts to check out is Phony Ppl, who are going all in with one fucking show next week. Ugh. Fine, you win, I’ll go to a Theophilus London show to see you guys. Floating around mysteriously on the netz since 2009 with ties to Odd Future, turning up in Urban Outfitters Fall catalog, oh and did I mention they are signed with Cara Morris at CAA? Clearly, I’m not the first to discover the crew’s infectiously smooth blend of hip hop, soul, jazz and RnB and probably closest thing to that 90s-era hip hop I’ve been clawing at the depths of the internet for. But Phony Ppl rely on more than nostalgia to keep your head bobbing, think The Roots and D’Angelo foundations but with the playfulness energy of a far less starved for attention, Odd Future…except these kids went to NYU. Polished just enough for a mainstream audience, but such soulful (and solid) lyrical prowess that no matter how entrenched in the underground you are, you can’t help but keep listening. I don’t think any of this happened by accident, (If you catch my drift). Regardless, I’m heading to the Gramercy Theater next Saturday to find out. 

If you are in NYC next week, go see Phony Ppl.

Young + Sick House of Spirits

Weak in the knees thumps melt through minimal drops, and plush vocals wrapped around an elusive veil that makes you either hate them, or write them off almost immediately…until Young + Sick are revealed as someone you had never heard of in the first place, but you dig what they are doing and decide it’s now ok to like them and support them whole-heartedly.

They also do artwork for pop stars (see: Maroon5, Foster The People, The Rapture, etc), and have had music floating around on sites like Bitzl R and Earmilk since 2011. Enjoy the art, for arts sake and stay tuned. More to be revealed soon. 

Young Magic Night In The Ocean Video + Sparkly Into The Open Session

When someone asks me who they should be listening to, without an ounce of hesitation, my answer over the last several months has been, “Young Magic.” I’ve caught countless live performances, listened to their four singles thousands of times, and written about them more than once. This band brings so much to the table from recordings, to performance, aesthetic, they are the real deal. There is no doubt in my mind 2012 will be their year.

The video for “Night In The Ocean,” (my favorite Young Magic song thus far) sums up the band pretty well. Sexy, strange, vast, with lots of earthly elements that span the entire globe.

Watch the band’s just first live session for In The Open, which was recorded in the woods, during their stop in San Francisco while on tour with Youth Lagoon below.

Carpark finally gives more details as to what the band’s album will be like describing it as, “Heavily informed by West African rhythms, Brainfeeder hip-hop, UK bass, and 60s psychedelic soul. Young Magic’s full-length debut, Melt, expands on their varied aesthetic, at once electronically sequenced and completely organic. Containing recordings from ten different countries, the album flaunts new facets at each turn.”

So pumped for this release. Read my previous posts on Young Magic here and here.

Young Magic’s debut album, Melt, drops on Valentines Day via Carpark and comes complete with a silver half moon pendant. Pre-order HERE.

High Highs Flowers Bloom + Video

Five EPs you need on repeat: High Highs

Was reminded of the awesomeness that is High Highs recently by the lovely Beth Martinez of Danger Village PR. Love my LA music crew. The video for this track is pretty sweet too. Look out for new tunes from these guys via Elton John’s new label.

Body Cheetah & Messed Up Coyote Shawty

Like a deep south hip hop experiment that dripped through the cracks in the floors and into the basement where a Mississippi experimental psych band was practicing, this nightmarish dream known as “Shawty” has surfaced as a result. The collaboration between NY projects Body Cheetah and Messed Up Coyote just dropped this mind fuck of a psych hop EP Clang that has made me realize the kids are not alright, but probably better off anyways.

If that band The Darkness started taking drugs again, I would imagine they would aspire to sound like a much gayer version of this. Whatever is happening here, I like it, and I want it in and around me.

Check my previous post on Body Cheetah and their jam “The Smell Of Dead Bodies” HERE.
