WATCH: Youth Lagoon — “Montana”

November 29, 2011

0 Comments

There’s a nostalgia dripping through each song in Youth Lagoon’s debut LP, The Year of Hibernation, and the only thing that these Idahoan kids don’t do is take a break. From obscurity a year ago, to press after press kit establishing these Daniel Johnston lovers as one of the best outfits to come out of Idaho since the potato and blue turf. Check out the uber-sentimental video for the standout anthem “Montana,” and name me one thing that state is famous for besides the names of people…

WATCH: Danny Brown — “Blunt After Blunt”

November 29, 2011

Danny Brown has had quite a year. He’s got two great mixtapes under his belt, one entirely produced by the Detroit great Black Milk and the other a single minded piece of work that puts most of 2011’s hip hop albums to shame. Yesterday, the hard working MC released an A$AP Rocky directed video for “Blunt After Blunt”, a standout from XXX. Check it out below. I dare you to not get a contact high.

WATCH: Bad Indians — “The Path Home” [Scopitone VidBox Session]

November 16, 2011

Ypsilanti isn't really known for underground rock 'n roll, but Bad Indians might change that shceme of things with their newest 7"

Bad Indians aren’t from New York, or from San Francisco, and they’re definitely not making music in the 1960s for Max’s Kansas City. But this fuzz is charged up, and I guarantee if you put on The Path Home, their newest 7″, at some hipster smoke session before a show you’d get things like, “This’s pretty good. Is this the Velvet Underground?” or “Are these guys on Slumberland?” No, they’re from Ypsilanti, and are probably making the best underground rock ‘n roll in the state of Michigan.

Recently they stopped in Grand Rapids for a show at Mexicains Sans Frontieres and to record a session for Scopitone VidBox. Check out “The Path Home” below, and listen to the 7″ on Bad Indians bandcamp.
