I recently stumbled upon The Ridebook from Harley Davidson produced in collaboration with handful of guest curators: Relic, The Selvedge Yard, The Fader, Urbandaddy, Scot Toepfer, and a A Time To Get. The ridebook is made up of short films, music, photography, and short essays all of which speak to the profound impact this iconic brand has had on culture in America and abroad from 1900 up to present day.
Recently stumbled onto Death Grips through the video above. Hard to classify the sound… hip hop (ish) vocals on top of fuzzed out madness. Check out their Exmilitary album currently available as a free download from their site.
It’s been nearly four years since Amon Tobin has come out with a new album. Fortunately, in the case of Amon Tobin, his albums tend to get better and to grow more experimental with each new project regardless of the space in between them.
Isam, the first of three expected releases set for 2011, appears to be taking a powerful stab at a full audio/visual experience as well as an indescribable list of other interesting marketing tactics and design choices.
In the midst of many other exciting projects, plans and collaborations, I’ve been working with Brooklyn rapper / DJ, Jasmine Solano on the design for her most recent release, “Turn It Up”. This is Jasmine’s second official release and is a precursor for an EP scheduled to drop sometime this summer.
Make sure to grab the track while you can, Jasmine is offering Turn It Up, as a free download on her Bandcamp site.
There’s nothing better than coming across new and unfamiliar music and a fantastic video to compliment it.
Check out more music from Hooray for Earth here.
I just came across a pretty solid album from Noisia today, packed full of violently aggressive drum samples and swells of destructive bass. If you’re looking for something to tear the veneer off the walls or to help you get through an overnighter, Split Atoms is the album.
The track above features Foreign Beggars, who is also worth a listen if you’re unfamiliar.

Most Days is a music video directed by brothers Paul and Matt Layzell for the band Mazes. Paul and Matt wanted to take us back to those junior-high days of smoking too much weed, skating everyday, and puking after putting down half of your 40 ouncer, all captured on your moms handy cam! Sit back and sip on an ice cold brew whilst packing a freshy and enjoy this animated skate wizardry!
I haven’t heard much from Krampfhaft, but this little taste from Spit Thunder EP gets me rather excited for more.
A short, but exceptionally well done bumper for YesYesYall‘s video channel.
Minnesota up-and-comer, Fancy Mike, recently dropped Madison Square Gardner, a well rounded 8 tracks of lo fi beats and synth-based melodies. You can listen to the full album on his Bandcamp site and check out the rest of his catalog, which I believe are free downloads, on his site.
If there is one way to explain the last decade of rap music, I’m not sure the term raw, or exciting would be the words I chose to do so. Tyler, The Creator, on the other hand, is a perfect example of both of those. His uninhibited and kind of careless charisma are destined to penetrate even the tiniest of aural cavities, starting with this video for Yonkers, off of his upcoming album called Goblin.
