Food & Liquor is still pretty amazing.
Not sure whether or not I'm in favor of the move to the Shrine, but should be fun regardless. Last year was incredible. Anyone know how much tickets are supposed to be?
Hudson Mohawke - Lantern
when the music skips and someone yells, "REMIX!"
I don't think it is. At least not for me. I do listen to a lot of jazz, although mostly older stuff, but I will say that in terms of contemporary jazz music this is one of the very few records (maybe...
NPR footage of the Epic release concert:...
Looks like Thundercat is playing this year:
kinda bummed it's only one day
edit: Daedelus will be there as well.
Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment - Surf
(this is Chance The Rapper and his band's new project and it's free on iTunes now)
anyone think we might see an EDM headliner (that isn't Daft Punk) within the next few years? I'm not at all suggesting this would be a good thing, but just judging on the size of the crowds at some...
^^All I know is that Thugger/Popcaan single is beautiful. Can't wait to hear the rest.
^^^all improvised btw
Yep, I think it's probably his best work yet. Definitely Dilla influenced but it still has that signature Knxwledge feel.
RTJ were amazing last year, but I kinda wish their repeat booking would've gone to a different rap act who hasn't played the fest yet.
D'Angelo, Frank Ocean, JAMC, Deerhunter, Nicolas Jaar, and Tobias Jesso Jr. alone make this a very easy decision for me. After last year's problems it was going to take a really stellar lineup for me...
Yeah it's been killing me I can't go to that tonight ^^
man, I've been dying to see D'Angelo, and I'm sure it's probably worth it, but he continuously prices me out of seeing him whenever he comes to town. blah. oh well.
Kamasi Washington's The Epic is... pretty astounding. I'm no where near done absorbing all of it, as it's 172 minutes in length, but wow. It's certainly a jazz record, but it's also so much more than...
The errors have already been a problem, although most that should probably be attributed to learning to play left field at age 31. His bat has been tremendous, however. Even his outs are hit...
Kamasi Washington - The Epic
I talked to a couple people who had fake IDs taken from them last weekend. Neither had their wristbands cut or anything like that. They simply had their IDs taken and were told to move along.
Ernest Baker tha gawd
I stayed until he played "Tuesday" and then left. What I saw was OK. Not as bad as some people are making it out to be. Maybe it got worse after I left.
Young Thug - The Barter 6
First time I'd seen him since he played in 2010. So much fun. Great crowd. Easily the happiest and most positive performance of the weekend. The Pack coming out was the icing on the cake.
I still need more time to digest it, but Tyler's new one, Cherry Bomb, is a pretty big departure from his previous records and I totally love it. It's rap, I guess, but it's filtered through Tyler's...
HM: Toro Y Moi, The War On Drugs, ACDC, Jack White, Tyler, Flylo, SBTRKT, Alabama Shakes, St. Vincent
oh shit. can't wait to see "DEATHCAMP" on saturday.
Vic Mensa 1:35-2:05
Marques Wyatt 2:15-3:05
Lil B 3:10-4:00
Charles Bradley 4:05-4:35
Rae & Ghost 6:05-6:35
Ryan Hemsworth 6:40-6:50
Alabama Shakes 7:00-7:50...
Based on the stuff you listed I'd definitely recommend Young Thug. He recently did a joint project with Rich Homie Quan that's great, called Rich Gang: The Tour Part 1. There's also just a whole...
Damn, I thought Night + Market was going to be back again this year. :(
anyone have a link to the interview?
The new Earl album is hitting me so hard. It's exactly the dark, dense, anti-social rap record that I needed right now. It seems to shrug off any and all ambition and just get straight to the point....
Earl Sweatshirt - I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside
(not technically a leak, but it just...
here are my 2015 guesses, which will inevitably be laughable at the end of the season:
By the time you hear the next "pop", the FUNK shall be within you...
I think I've already listened to "King Kunta" more than any other Kendrick Lamar song. Hypnotic and funky is nice combination.
I already like this much more than GKMC, which I found to be a little underwhelming in the wake of Section.80. I think funky Kendrick is officially my favorite Kendrick.
Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly
1. Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma
2. Raekwon - Only Built For Cuban Linx
3. Tyler, The Creator - WOLF
4. Ghostface Killah - Fishscale
5. St. Vincent - St. Vincent
6. Lil B - 6 Kiss
7. Ride -...
Kamasi needs his own thread. I've been seeing him (and the crazy talented guys that he plays with) fairly regularly in LA over the past year or so and there's really just not much else in going on in...
^Yeah he's crazy talented. Got to see him do an intimate studio session a couple weeks ago and was blown away.
Judd Apatow w/Fiona Apple & Jon Brion - Largo - 3/13
room has been booked.
Weird. When HOB first posted the Earl show on twitter it said the 11th (https://twitter.com/HOBSunset/status/570360802542166016), but obviously in that pitchfork post it says the 8th and so does...
the other possibility i considered was Earl is just showing up for Flying Lotus' set.
The cash in the deal is just a signing bonus. They're basically just paying him for the rights to have him as a minor league player. There's no official length to the contract. They do however have 6...
just saw this and got really excited. friday's already so stacked though...
BASEBALL IS FINALLY HERE
shiiiit just realized I forgot Double Cup...
edit: I also forgot Flockaveli. I'm fucking up. That's top 10 no question.
Fuck this is sad. One of my favorite comedic voices. I had no idea that he had a problem until I listened to his episode of You Made It Weird just a few months ago in which he was really candid about...
