Religion and shit

Download new tracks Greg Graffin, the Clipse, and Shit Robot

Greg Graffin

Greg Graffin, “Don’t Be Afraid To Run” (mp3)
If punk is really just folk music, maaaan, then how come so many punks insist on getting back to roots-rock in their old age? On sabbatical from Bad Religion, Graffin whips out the acoustic guitar, ropes in the Weakerthans (who already know a thing or two about the career path from agit-speedpunks to roots-rockers), and blows . . . on a harmonica. To be fair, the result doesn’t suck as bad as Mike Ness’s country records. But that’s not saying much.

Clipse, DJ Benzi, Diplo, et al., We Got the Remix (mixtape)
What started as an inside job — underground DJs hijack the a cappellas to the Clipse’s We Got It 4 Cheap mixtapes, plot remix coup — has become a semi-authorized sequel. Yes, Pharrell’s back — signing his first skater, hanging with Donatella — on the new “Mr. Me Too,” while the Re-Up Gang spits new freestyles over old Beasties. No dunce-capping and kazooing here: everyone steps their game up, from NYC party DJ Nick Catchdubs to Montreal maverick Ghislain Poirier.

Shit Robot, Large Room Full of People (mixtape)
Marcus Lambkin, a/k/a Shit Robot, has been running with the DFA’s James Murphy since their days spinning at the Planet Bar, and if all goes as planned he’ll be the next Juan McLean. While you’re waiting for a domestic pressing of his UK “Wrong Galaxy” 12-inch (visions of Carl Craig!), you can sample his exquisite taste on this album-length DJ mix recorded this past February in Germany.

    "This was still a 30 year old black kid when I was working with him," Davis says, still incredulous at Jackson's death. "And the guy who just died looked kind of like a 60 year old white woman in garish lipstick. Kind of like the Joker."
  •   BSO ANNOUNCES LAYOFFS  |  June 23, 2009
    Another painful day for the culture industry.
  •   PJ HARVEY WANTS YOUR FUCKING ASS  |  June 08, 2009
    PJ Harvey's two albums with John Parish are not her best work. (Go ahead and argue it, if you like.) The first, Dance Hall At Louse Point , was a surprise departure from her game-changing To Bring You My Love , an album that sold far less than Madonna records but packed as much cultural impact -- back when rock albums and cultural impact were still on speaking terms.
  •   HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3: SENIOR YEAR  |  October 28, 2008
    Although Senior Year makes the most of its big-screen debut by increasing the body counts in its group-choreography numbers, it’s a smaller movie than its chart-topping, direct-to-cable predecessors.
