Fresh New Music + Upcoming Shows

One day I'll run the sort of blog where people send me their music before it's releases. Or maybe one day I'll be one of those people that trolls the torrents for leaks. Until then I'll just drop some info on a couple soon to be released records, and tell you how they are after I've dug up the paper to pick up the vinyl.

you can check out a sufi and a killer over at clashmusic.com. I've got Gonjasufi's first couple seven inches, and i've heard his work with flying lotus. I'm looking forward to this record, but tentatively. I wasn't a big fan of 'ancestors', and i'm still trying to work out whether i'm a fan of GassLamp killer. That being said, the first seven inch was amazing.

Gonja is playing a dj set at the echoplex. I bet the record will be available for sale for $20 which makes the eight dollar ticket price more than worth it. go to ticketweb for Details about the show with GLK and mainframe (producers from a sufi and a killer.)

Speaking of shows...

Hey Los Angeles RJD2 is coming to town! I read an interview where rj explains this is the most intricate and rehearsed tour he's ever put on. I saw RJD2 a number of years ago, and the guy is an amazing musician, not just a dope producer, and the live show really exemplifies this. I fell off the rjd2 bandwagon after the third handed shift, but the interview had me re-thinking the twenty dollar ticket price. If you wanna go, i would recommend buying tickets at the el rey box office, but if you like to spend an additional %40 on your tickets, you can do so online at the El Rey website.

Also fresh off the presses ATOMS FOR PEACE ft.THOM YORKE + FLYING LOTUS micro tour.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow at waste.uk.com though for the life of me i can't figure out when. If you can't get a waste ticket, (usually impossible, but free from terrorizing fees) then the tickets can be purchased starting march 6th.

If you get tickets to the santa barbara show, you wont see flying lotus, cause he'll be "performing" at coachella, but oakland isn't really that far away.

New York Roseland Ballroom 5th + 6th
Boston Citi Wang Theatre 8th
Chicago Aragon Ballroom 10th + 11th
Oakland Fox Theatre 14th + 15th
Santa Barbara Bowl 17th
