The band TEENAGERSINTOKYO have been lingering around for a while now. They have released an EP and a few singles over the past couple years, but we have been awaiting a full length for some time. The wait is nearing an end with their debut full length album Sacrifice that is due out May 24th. This video for their single ‘End It Tonight’ was just released and it has refreshed my memory of how much I like these guys.
“1977″ is a collector book by Bob Rifo & Mathieu Cesar, with Mathieu’s photographs. Out on May 11th on www.borntofilm.com and www.deathcrew77.com
Music by Rifoki “Sperm Donor” (Dim Mak Records)

Wow, this trailer looks amazing. I honestly feel that there aren’t enough quality movies done on Electro and representing the culture in a good light. Can’t wait to see this.
Here is a pretty well designed info-graphic (from Information Is Beautiful) about the amount of online sales a solo musician must sell in order to make a US monthly minimum wage of $1,160. It’s a bit sobering to see how little they payout is for some of these services we are buying from. I mean, $0.0017 per stream on Spotify?! It almost makes me want to start purchasing directly from the artists themselves instead of iTunes. It also makes you realize that most of the musicians and artists you listen to are probably doing it more for the love of what they do rather than the money.
XLR8R has written a wrap-up on Coachella this year. Their take on the festival is a bit jaded and cynical as they tend to be sometimes, but their view on what they call “Dubstep Crusties” is pretty hilarious.
“As dubstep has become the de facto rave music of the West Coast, crusty hippies have ditched Phish in favor of Bassnectar and the DJs at the Do Lab, a tropically themed tent that stood amidst Coachella’s five main stages. The dubstep featured was of the wobbly, beef-tenderizing variety rather than Kode9 or Burial, which was totally fine with the nu-ravers covered in burlap-sack clothing and glow-thingies. For some reason, the distinct scent of beached salmon clung to the area by Sunday.”
If you can’t tell by now, besides a few exceptions, I am not much of a Dubstep fan.
