Chromeo has announced cities and dates for their Business Casual Summer Tour. I am not a huge fan of Chromeo, but they do put on a good live show. I am however a pretty big fan of Holy Ghost and Neon Indian who will be joining them for some stops on the tour.
Check out live footage from The Glitch Mob at The Do Lab.
(Self-promo alert) For those of you who don’t know I not only run this blog, but my main focus is designing under the moniker Kidplastik. I work with many clients including lots of musicians, DJs and producers. I have recently updated my portfolio with some works I have done for Eli Smith, Always Never (Le Castle Vania’s label), Kids at the Bar, Killpop Records and Computer Blue. I am looking to expand my client base and am looking for cool people to work with. If you are looking for or are interested in album artwork, website, logo, branding or illustration work you can contact me here.
More work here.
Mixeeba is a cool little service that’s good for both listeners and publisher of mixtapes. Basically the website will take a tracklist you have copied and pasted, search all of the major online distribution outlets for those tracks and then output a converted tracklist with links to where you can purchase those tracks. This is a great little tool for DJs, music bloggers and music lovers.
Ever wonder what your favorite bands’ favorite foods are? Check out the new show on IFC Original Series called Dinner With the Band every Tuesday night. The show talks with the bands while they cook some food and do a live performances. Check out a video of VEGA performing ‘Kyoto Gardens’ on the Dinner With the Band.
A couple months ago with the release of the iPad and several DJ apps I was wondering if any serious DJs would actually be using the iPad to perform. Well, I guess my question has been answered. Here is a video of Richie Hawtin aka Plastikman doing a sound check Movement in Detroit. It’s not clear as to what application he is using, but it certainly makes me curious.
I was first turned on to Yours Truly from a video they had done about Delorean. Yours Truly is a group in San Francisco that seem to have their hands in a lot of creative outlets focusing mainly on journalism, video production, photography and graphic design. They have done work with Current TV, Pitchfork, XLR8R, Stereogum, URB and more. I really enjoy their videos that give an intimate look into the lives of bands like Cut Copy, Passion Pit, Delorean, Girls, Nosaj Thing and a bunch more. I could spend all day watching their videos.
