Dam-Funk / LA Record / Invite the Light L.A. release party


Dam-Funk / LA Record / Invite the Light L.A. release party

Dam-Funk / LA Record / Invite the Light L.A. release party

Dam-Funk graces the cover of the local favorite music mag, LA Record for their Fall 2015 issue.  

As appropriate to Dam-Funk's well-known Gemini nature, the new Invite The Light is an album of two halves-the first an exploration of the light and the sky, climaxing on the Flea / Computer Jay / Dam collab "Floating On Air," and the second a strapped-for-battle fight for survival on the dirty surface of the Earth, announced by the crushing "HowUGonFuckAroundAndChooseABusta?" (And exploded by the merciless "Hunt And Murder of Lucifer," too.) Guests like Snoop Dogg, Jody Watley, Q-Tip, Ariel Pink, Leon Sylvers III and IV and more slide through The Light, which begins and ends with underground-radio-style stay-strong messages from funk legend Junie Morrison, and which takes everything you recognize as the sound (and soul) of Dam-Funk and reveals new vision and power. If his 2009 debut Toeachizown demonstrated everything Dam could do, The Light demonstrates everything Dam is: it's a focused and intensely personal album as it glides from bright to night, with long moments where the bleakness and the beauty dissolve into the same fundamental thing. On Invite The Light and in this interview, too, Dam reveals himself as an artist aiming for the horizon instead of just for the hit-he's the kind of musician who always wants to go a little further. He speaks now about freedom, healing and how there might be just one more Dam-Funk record left. - intro by Chris Ziegler from LA Record Fall 2015

Invite the Light comes out Sep. 4th. On the 5th, Dam-Funk & Nite Jewel will perform at the Los Angeles release party for the album at Telegraph Ballroom. This is an all-ages event. Grab tickets here.

NxWorries - "Suede" - official music video


NxWorries - "Suede" - official music video

NxWorries -

AP & Knx back stage in NYC. Photo by Maxwell Schiano.

Anderson .Paak and producer Knxwledge are working together as NxWorries. They debuted with the single “Suede” last spring. Here is the music video, directed by Calmatic.

Anderson .Paak is “The L.A. Savant All Over Dr. Dre's New Album” to quote the wise folks at Fader. The singer is featured on Dre’s Compton, but his own credits go beyond vocalist – songwriter, drummer, live performer and producer, whose music formed much of Watsky’s All You Can Do (2014).

Knxwledge is a prolific hip-hop beat maker from Los Angeles whose record Hud Dreems we released this year. His production credits include tracks for Kendrick Lamar, Joey Badbutt, Sandman, and a few other lucky collaborators.

NxWorries are working on a full-length album for Stones Throw Records, and are currently on tour with Earl Sweatshirt.

U.S. TOUR DATES – NXWORRIES WITH EARL SWEATSHIRT:

Aug 25: Baltimore @ Rams Head Live
Aug 28: Asheville @ Orange Peel
Aug 29: Raleigh @ The Ritz
Sep 1: Tampa @ Orpheum

Peanut Butter Wolf's cover of "Boyz in the Hood" from 1987

  • Peanut Butter Wolf
  • August 14, 2015

In 1987, I had just graduated high school and moved from San Jose to Long Beach, CA for college. I chose Long Beach State because I assumed it would be a party school since it had 'beach' in the name. My parents helped me move all my belongings which were my clothes, 2 turntables, a mixer, speakers, an amp and probably around 10 crates of records. I was into hip hop, but wore vintage clothes from thrift stores and had a mushroom haircut so wasn't really accepted by the other college students who never understood me. So I was a loner who pretty much stayed in my dorm room and made music all the time. I remember saving my money once I got there and eventually bought a 4-track recorder and a Casio drum machine that had 4 pads, each with a split second of sample time. I got the drum machine used for like $300 and was very excited. Next step was to find a rapper so I put an ad in the paper. I said my influences were Schoolly D, Just Ice, Scott La Rock, and Ultramagnetic MCs. 'Hardcore rap.' That's how I found Spunky Spunk Dogg, a Cholo rapper from Long Beach. A few years later when Snoop Doggy Dogg came outta Long Beach, I wondered if he knew Spunky Spunk Dogg, but that's another story. Spunky had more tattoos than I had ever seen on a human, especially for 1988 and I was always kinda afraid of rolling with him cuz I didn't really know his background, but he always treated me with respect and admiration. I made the beats and did the cuts. This recording is the only one I have with him from back then and we performed outside at the backyard of a BBQ on a Sunday afternoon for an audience of around 15-20 people. We did around 5 or 6 original songs we had made and 1 cover and for the cover, we chose the biggest rap song in LA at the time. My turntable kept skipping as it wasn't a 1200 and nobody even really cheered. I don't even recall people really paying attention, but we were having fun and it was our first and last show together as a group. This was in the summer of '88, and soon after, I moved back to San Jose, where I eventually met Charizma and started all over again. -- PBW 8/14/2015

Trance Farmers - Garbage Night


Trance Farmers - Garbage Night

Trance Farmers - Garbage Night

In the store | TRANCE FARMERS - GARBAGE NIGHT

Trance Farmers' new release is Garbage Night – six tracks unifying a with a Neo-Psychobilly sound of sludge, psych, garage rock and samples – released as 7-inch vinyl, cassette and digital download on Leaving Records.

Dayve Samek from Trance Farmers declares this record a "testament to the over-saturation of GARBAGE in our culture, and a revival of the Garage Rock & Roll Spirit."

"Throwbacks & revivals exist based on the theory that time travels in cycles. Remember to recycle. Just follow those arrows, folks, and let’s turn that trash pile into a smile with Garbage Night!"

First 25 buyers of the 7-inch single will receive the "Iron-On Portal Patch" seen below | Video directed by David Bear
