La Sera give the people what they want, assuming the people want a new single, a new album, and an extended tour

La Sera give the people what they want, assuming the people want a new single, a new album, and an extended tour http://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/news-11-01-la-sera.png

Katy Goodman (a.k.a. Kickball Katy a.k.a. the bassist for Vivian Girls) knows what the people want. See, what they want is more music from her dream-pop project La Sera, and that’s exactly what they’re going to get when Goodman releases the Devils Hearts Grow Gold 7-inch on January 18 (check out the track now over at the Chocolate Grinder) and a self-titled album on February 15. What the people also want is to be able to see La Sera live. And, what do you know, they’re going to get that, too, as La Sera’s winter tour has been extended all the way into the spring. What more could the people ask for? Nothing.

UHHHHHHHHHHHHHH No Limit Records Is Back!

What has hip-hop been missing the last few years? Is it the presence of Dr. Dre, whose Detox is being constantly fine-tuned to disappoint as extravagantly as possible? What about a reunited Outkast (or, really, even a solo effort from Andre)? Wrong and wrong again. Three simple words sum up the massive void left in the hip-hop landscape: No. Limit. Records.

Yes, times have been dark without Master P’s mighty empire, which introduced us to the ever-charming likes of Sillkk the Shocker and Mystikal. But those times are over, because No Limit Records is back! Taking the mantle that P. himself once shed, Master P’s family is relaunching the label as a digital-only affair called No Limit Records Forever. Heading up this venture as president is Romeo Miller, who you and I know better as child rap sensation Lil’ Romeo.

Who knows what all this will mean for No Limit Records and its legacy of poorly Photoshop’d explosions, but you know what? This video is still awesome. Fry ‘em!

Bibio announces “groin-tastically trip-tronic” new album. Related: TMT attributes false quotes to Bibio.

Remember when British producer and electronic artist Bibio started cramming more Boards of Canada-style beats into his warpy, watery, swirly, and drippy drones with 2009’s Ambivalence Avenue (TMT Review), and everyone totally loved it and started paying more attention to him all of a sudden?

Well, he probably does too. In a press release for his new album Mind Bokeh, which is due March 29 in the US and April 4 everywhere else, Bibio pledged to continue Ambivalance Avenue’s adventurous genre-mangling and “acoustic guitars v. drum machines” cage matches. He also references a Thin Lizzie influence on one track, but we’re just going to pretend like he didn’t say that for now. Mind Bokeh takes its title from the Japanese word “bokeh,” which I think is Japanese for “hypnagogic” or something.

Anyway, check out the tracklist below, as well as a YouTube video-sampler of the album, below (I guess he was actually pretty serious about that Thin Lizzie thing). Also, allow me to be the first to point out that the cover art looks like a free cell phone wallpaper.

Mind Bokeh tracklisting:

01. Excuses
02. Pretentious
03. Anything New
04. Wake Up!
05. Light Seep
06. Take Off Your Shirt

08. K Is for Kelson
09. Mind Bokeh

11. Feminine Eye
12. Saint Christophe

Deerhoof to team with Konono N°1 and Kasai Allstars, plan 7-inch series with Xiu Xiu and more

Deerhoof vs. Evil, Deerhoof’s Polyvinyl debut, isn’t even out yet (coming January 25, readers), but the band already has some new shit cooking on their wood-burning stove (yes, they’re that cool). According to Exclaim, Deerhoof are planning a 7-inch series that “will see each track from Deerhoof vs. Evil released as a collaborative single with another artist.” The artists will, according to drummer Greg Saunier, “create their own vocals over it, their own melody and lyrics and everything.” The first single with Physical Forms (featuring Busdriver) was released last year, and a new one with Xiu Xiu is already completed.

In other news, Deerhoof are working on a “big collaboration” with Congolese musicians Konono N°1 and Kasai Allstars. “We’ve also got a big collaboration thing planned for this year that’s super exciting; I don’t even know if I’m allowed to talk about it yet. It’s very likely that there’s going to be a large collaborative group that will include the members of Deerhoof, as well as members of Konono No.1 and Kasai Allstars, that will hopefully be doing some large festival shows in the summer of 2011.”

Also lookout for vinyl reissues of their back catalog later this year, because we hear vinyl is doing okay for itself.
