Miami Horror & Geographer Show 11/28/11



Its been over a year since I posted a short introduction to Miami Horror. By now they shouldn't need any introduction because their music has done most of the talking and they put out some good stuff. I'm throwing this out there for any Sacramento peeps who are looking to join me. Tickets are $15. If I can get 2 people to join me, I'll pay for half of each of their ticket... Hit me up if you're interested? Geographer is opening for them, and although I'm not familiar with their music, I'm checking it out right now and am liking what I'm hearing (IndieAlternativeElectronic Gravy). Check em out if your not familiar below and let me know!

Mudge's Let's Get Creepy



Nothing like a couple creepy dark songs to really get me fired up for Halloween...I've been compiling a playlist of songs that I get to dust off ever time this year. Perfect for walking through a graveyard on a full moon and partying with zombies. I wish I could be with everyone this Halloween but unfortunately that won't be doable. The next best thing is to download my Creepy Mix and play it at your Halloween party and I will be with you in spirit. Mediafire link to download entire playlist at bottom of post.

After listening and relistenting to this beautiful track by Pressed And, its as though I just took a spiritual shower and washed off all of the impurities built up over the whole week. Reminiscent of James Blake and as refreshing like a cool autumn stream.

Democratic Republic of Congo - Kinshasa One Two

A collective of producers gathered by Damon Albarn recently visited the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to produce a new album for Oxfam. T-E-E-D (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs), Dan The Automator, Jneiro Jarel, Richard Russell, Actress, Marc Antoine, Alwest, Rodaidh McDonald and Kwes all made the trip with the plan - to make an album in 5 days.

Wracked by years of conflict, the DRC is home to one of the world's worst humanitarian crises, and proceeds from the album will go to helping Oxfam's work, helping thousands of the DRC's poorest people.

DJ Screw

I have both of these songs from my most recent download binge... have no idea where they're from but am really enjoying right now. With a tiny amount of research, it looks like DJ screw was holding it down in Houston back in the late 90's chopping and screwing thousands of songs and including them in hundreds of mixtapes creating a huge underground following in the process.... rest in peace dj screw.
