J. Rocc
“Play This Too”

Yesterday, turntablist J. Rocc dropped Some Cold Rock Stuff on Stones Throw. You know, the beats would actually sound pretty good beneath raps about faggots, necrophilia, and rape. Do I smell a collaboration? Check out some upcoming performances by J. Rocc here.

Gang Gang Dance


“MindKillah,” another new track off Gang Gang Dance’s forthcoming album Eye Contact, features some lyrics from the cute little lullaby, “Hush Little Baby.” But with Lizzi Bougatsos’ delivery, it’s more like “SHUT THE FUCK UP, STUPID BABY!!” The video is directed by Shoji Goto of the Boredoms. Download the track at the band’s official website.

Eye Contact, the band’s fifth full-length, is out May 10 via 4AD.

Jeremy Jay

Dream Diary [full-album stream]

Jeremy Jay’s new album, Dream Diary, is due next Tuesday, April 12, on K Records. In a wise move, Jay is currently offering the full album as a stream. According to TMT’s Rowan Savage (whose review of the album will be up shortly), “Jay has the fragility, beauty and occasional majesty of any of the Sarah Records roster, without the frustratingly cultivated naiveté or humorlessness.” Agreed.
