Pretty old news by now seeing as it was first uploaded well over a year ago but this track/video/rap/monologue by Kool A.D. (formerly of Das Racist fame) deserves some serious appreciation. Unbelievably it currently has just 42,000 views on Youtube meaning that most Kool A.D. and Das Racist fans haven’t even heard it yet.
Why have I waited till now to post it? Well like lots of other Kool A.D. fans, I was quite dismayed that this nigh-on 10 minute freestyle wasn’t included in either the 51, 63 or 19 mixtapes nor released as a stand alone track. I’ve spent the best part of a year occasionally scanning the net for an mp3 of reasonable quality when suddenly it popped up on the popular music streaming service Grooveshark. You didn’t hear it from me but there is a piece of software you’ll find with a bit of Googling that works on both Windows and Mac that downloads mp3s from Grooveshark and will allow you to keep this track at the relatively glorious bitrate of 192kbps. Enjoy.
Found a way to get 320kbps or better? Please leave details in the comments.
Directed by Philippe Grenade, ‘I Was A Bomb’ is the debut music video of the band Silent Rider, a downtempo, bass heavy group.
The black and white narrative, shot on the RED in New York’s Appalachia, follows a man and woman as they trek the landscape in search of some enigmatic form of nourishment. After what seems like a dreary and fruitless journey, they stumble upon what they’ve been tracking, culminating in a haunting sequence of events.
The Civilization EP will be the most significant release since Justice’s ‘Cross’ back in 2007. Scheduled for release on June 6th, it is currently unclear what other tracks the Civilization EP will contain but it is known it features a remix from Mr. Oizo. There’s also word of a currently untitled second album set for release in autumn. Exciting times.
If shattered monuments raining down on wildebeest in a post apocalyptic, gravity reversed setting is something you’re into, then you’ll love this immense work of CGI mastery.
With the King Felix EP released in April and now this remix, Laurel Halo is still very much active in a scene of her own. In keeping the tightly bound sound of BRAHMS’ whilst adding her own unique, transdimensional qualities to the music, this track has the perfect balance all remixes should have but very rarely do. I’m sure we can expect to see a lot more from both BRAHMS and Laurel Halo in the future.
Below, the video to Laurel Halo‘s remix of BRAHMS’ Another Time.
Indie Music Finds was started in April 2009 as a place for people to find something new. I try and keep it quite diverse so rummage around a bit and I’m sure you’ll find something you like to take away with you.
