Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All is the band your parents hate. They’re obnoxious, repulsive, scary. They talk about rape and murder. Their music videos often involve puking and graphic violence.
Limerick, Ireland’s comedy hip-hop duo, The Rubberbandits, have exploded into fame with the release of their hit single “Horse Outside”. The single stands out from their other works with a much more electro-influenced sound I would love to hear more of. The music video is filled with hilarious Michael Jackson-esque dance moves, and makes a pretty strong argument for using a horse as your main source of transportation, instead of a car.
If you want to hear more from the Rubberbandits, you can check out a series of very funny prank phone calls, as well as their other music videos on youtube.
WRGW is incredibly proud to announce that our very own Drew Bandos (aka DJ Banda Bear, my co-host on Sit Back and Dream, on Fridays 2-4 pm EST) has been signed to Mush Records for his project Is and Of The! Drew’s debut album, Heads Phased for Dreamless Sleep, was recorded in dorm rooms and basements in DC and Philly, along with the collaboration of friends. It spans an expansive range of genres, including elements of shoegaze, psychedelic, electronic and post-rock, but maintains a unified and beautiful ambient feel.
Toilet Records’ suitably dirty bass/drum duo Sigmund Droid released their second album, Maximum Grind, in August of 2009. The album introduced a new dimension to the Sigmund Droid sound by featuring their friend David Tobias, guitarist of the late Apes & Androids. A friend of mine has been fortunate enough to get some practice space at Toilet Records’ studio in Brooklyn where his band (stay tuned…) has apparently been getting some love from another ex-Ape & Android aliased as Morgan Z. Once upon a time Morgan put out a solid remix of Datarock’s Princess, which wound up on their myspace page. Now he’s thrown down an incredible remix of Sigmund Droid’s I Don’t Want You To Go, full of epic bass and dance power I just can’t get enough of. Do yourself a favor and wrap your head with a big pair of bassey earmuffs for this guy:
