Chocolate Grinder Mix 42
“I’ll Eat Your Soul”
Yep, this mix is named after one of the best lines from Evil Dead 2, “Tribute” by Tenacious D, “Come To Daddy” by Aphex Twin, and probably a hundred other films and songs. It looks pretty serious on paper, and yet, in context, it is often served on a bed of dark humor. There are some heavy moments on this mix — a Norwegian death growl, two slices of Candlelight rage, and a righteous Anticon political anthem — but there are flashes of that silver lining among these grey clouds, just to bring a glint of levity to the situation. After all, it is a fine line between being somber and being a buzz kill.

Disappears will release their second album, Guider, on Kranky early next year. Look for the group on tour in January, with Sonic Youth’s Steve Shelley on the
skin flute drums.

Elsinore, orchestral pop wizards that they are, have released a new animated video for “Wooden Houses,” a track off their new album Yes Yes Yes (released on Parasol Records). The video was made in collaboration with videographer Zimos Ferguson, whose name is so sweet that you have got to check out the video. Song’s sweet too. So are their sweaters.
Elsinore are currently on tour of the Midwest — check the dates here.
“Walmart and the Ghost of Jimmy Damour”
People, the new album by Skeleton$ (a.k.a. Skeletons, Skeleton$ Big Band, Skeletons & The Girl Faced Boys, Skeletons & The Kings of All Cities), is due in the spring next year via Shinkoyo. “Walmart and the Ghost of Jimmy Damour” is “dedicated to Jdimytai Damour, the Wal-Mart employee who was tragically trampled to death by the crowds at the annual ‘Doorbuster’ sale on Black Friday in 2008.”
