The Bloodbath crew just dropped their Phantom Vision Lookbook for Fall 2013. The well balanced collection features a range of shirts, a couple button downs, and a vest that I’m particularly feeling.
Lurk Hard is skateboard accessory brand established in 2008. We make hats, socks, t-shirts, jackets, coozies, stickers, bags, boards and sunglasses. Our initial idea started with a sticker, 2 shirts and a couple of skaters with very little direction and has now developed into a full line of skate accessories. The goal today hasn’t changed much, continue to make cool shit, have fun and try not to take ourselves too seriously. DFMO.
Sacramento native, vocalist/keyboardist Young Aundee put together a 20 minute mix of dark, electronic, synthy jams that dropped about a week ago on Soundcloud.
I’ve been using it as a soundtrack while editing photos and working on the new CLOUT site. You might dig it for similar purposes. Peep game below.
The draw of the 8-track EP? It’s made from “all unlicensed Nine Inch Nails samples”. I’m usually the first to hate on sampling known tracks – especially music that I like – but this project does NIN justice. (My favorite joint on the EP has to be the Terrible Lie cover.)
Since it’s available for free download, I don’t see Trent Reznor getting pissed and attempting to involve lawyers, but you never know. Something to watch out for if it gets enough press I guess?
There’s also a HALF-CAPS interview with Toothtaker over here at Noisey if you feel like reading some more about the album, dirty diapers, and getting pussy.
Those Breezy Excursion boys are back again for Fall 2013 with a Bay-centric lookbook. This time they linked up with the Ambassador Of the Bay, E-40 and his son Droop-E. The collection features a number of dope pieces, but my favorites have to be the gold Dayton or Polo Bear joints.
The majority of the production work comes from J. Sana, with additional contributions from Carling Ruse and Vans Beats. The sound stands solidly in the 90s boom-bap category with one track (6 – I Try) straying away from that tried and true formula.
San Jose’s own Anya Kvitka just dropped a new track One Less (Produced by snack|BOT & Bobby Ozuna). The kaleidoscope propaganda aesthetic is kind of like an OBEY poster put in motion, but otherwise an interesting twist on the whole retro video vibe. Give it a listen and put your friends up on it before it’s all over the place.
Looks like Kanye’s recent rant at Pusha T’s album release party was well justified. King Push just dropped a heater off his upcoming album featuring Kendrick Lamar, and it definitely lives up to the hype.
More rap like this, please.
SCRAM JONES came through and dropped Friday The 13th today. The classic cuts and beat in particular remind me of vintage Q-Bert on Dr. Octagon, which is a good thing.
Creep on creepin on.
