Screaming Females, Double Dagger, Future Islands

Last month, we told you about The Flavorpill Fix (TMT News), a new online music show that features videos, concert footage, and exclusive interviews “meant to be consumed in order, in its entirety, like a TV show or a mixtape.” This month, we’re telling you to watch it.

The debut episode of The Flavorpill Fix is out now and features Screaming Females, Double Dagger, and Future Islands, as well as MiniBoone (hey Doug!), Hammock, and Sabrina Chap. Watch the video above and click here for more info about The Flavorpill Fix.

Chocolate Grinder Mix 32

“Inglitchious Bassterds”

This installment is basically a wet dream of mine come to sticky fruition. When Tiny Mix Tapes started grinding chocolate, I never dreamed I’d be able to gather Venetian Snares, Kid606, and Mochipet on a single mix, all of whom I consider to be among the biggest names in glitch. Their supporting cast is nothing to scoff at either, featuring a righteous indie rap selection from Themselves (a track likely to make Jay-Z retire for the 24th and final time) and an uppity dance floor pump from breakbeat legend Si Begg. Also, Chad VanGaalen’s Black Mold adds a certain conserved madness to the festivities, completely unlike everything he makes with a guitar, while ill.gates & adamduke’s quirky “Closet Caveman” will satisfy those eagerly awaiting a new Tipper album. Kick ass.

Zach Hill

“Green Bricks”

Zach Hill has somehow found time to record a 4-way split 7-inch with Raleigh Moncrief, Mason Lindahl, and Ellie Fortune, due in June on Life’s Blood Records. Hill’s insanely mind-blowing track will also appear on an upcoming solo album due in September, but as we always say, why buy or listen to music outside of the Chocolate Grinder?

QUILT

“The More Mystery and Romance = More Sales”

Here is a billowing piece of synthesizer cloud from Seth Graham, a.k.a QUILT. It comes from one side of an Aural Diptych series being put out on Thisquietarmy Records (home to Aidan Baker of Nadja, Elika, Apillow, Electroluminescent, Le Chat Blanc Orchestra, and more). If you enjoy any of the new ambient synthesizer revivalists like Emeralds and Oneohtrix Point Never, then this is right up your alley.
