“Voi ei, ei voi olla totta”

The Chocolate Grinder LOVES Finland’s Fonal Records. To prove it, we’re sharing a track from the forthcoming Tv-resistori album, which will be the group’s third release. No release date info just yet, but Fonal definitely ain’t slacking, with new releases this year from Kemialliset Ystävät, Paavoharju, Islaja, and many more. :)

“Man Baby/Compuer Face/Pure Being” [remix of Flying Lotus]

Busdriver’s forthcoming mix tape, Computer Cooties, is tentatively due in Summer 2010. In addition to this Flying Lotus track (from the forthcoming Cosmogramma), he’ll be taking on tunes by Modeselktor, Daedelus, Holy Fuck, and Free The Robots. Exciting!

The Smashing Pumpkins

“Widow Wake My Mind” [live on Jay Leno]

After a titillating appearance by Heidi Klum and an oriental showing from Ken Jeong (Knocked Up, The Hangover), The Smashing Pumpkins end last night’s The Tonight Show With Jay Leno with a performance of “Widow Wake My Mind” off Teargarden by Kaleidyscope Vol. 1: Songs for a Sailor (set for release on May 25). The best part for me was when my wife farted (seriously) toward the end of the song. If only that could be embedded here too.
