Child Bite
“Odd Inn”

Child Bite’s new album, The Living Breathing Organ Summer, was released last month on Joyful Noise. While we were happy to post the track “Odd Inn” right here in the Chocolate Grinder, we were silently weeping that it didn’t come with any visual stimulation. But now that a video is out, we’re silently weeping that they aren’t on tour. But wait: they are! So why are we still weeping?

Captain Ahab

“I Don’t Have a Dick” [live at The Smell]

Captain Ahab has a new live album, The Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, that they’re giving away free (TMT News). The performance above, recorded in late May at The Smell in downtown Los Angeles, comes from the album, which is precisely why I even mentioned the live album. That’s journalism, friends!

You haven’t streamed “Someday” until you’ve streamed it through YouTube. Unless of course you streamed the audio via the Chocolate Grinder in January. Smartass.

The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger (Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl)

“Jardin du Luxembourg”

When not playing fucked-up music (with the likes of Vincent Gallo and Thurston Moore) or dating hot girls, Sean Lennon is actually releasing music with hot girls. Not only have Lennon and his girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl formed a new band called The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger (a.k.a. The GOASTT), but just yesterday the duo released a new single, “Jardin du Luxembourg” b/w “Comic Strip” (a re-imagining of Serge Gainbsbourg and Briggitte Bardot’s 1967 recording), on their own label Chimera Music. It’s no Into the Sun (an awesome album, in my opinion), but it’s unmistakably Lennon.

“Some Kind of Fool” [new song live]

Castanets, the project of all-around pervert Raymond Raposa, recorded a live session with Terror Eyes recently. “Some Kind of Fool” is a new track, so check it out. (Kidding about the pervert thing.)

Chocolate Grinder Mix 34

“We Invented The Remix, Internet, & Mix Tape”

Regardless of the fact that Tiny Mix Tapes did not actually invent any of these things (and neither did Puff Daddy nor Al Gore), they are all fantastic concepts, greatly impacting everyday life. Since you are streaming/downloading this mix as we speak, this edition of the Chocolate Grinder mix series represents a working combination of all three, hopefully to your thorough satisfaction. All of these remixes place their source material in a different context. Some act as an homage to the originals, and others are complete reimaginings.
