Video: Pictureplane Releases "Technomancer" Video by Matt Valerio

I remember back in the early 00s, when a young man named Pictureplane was an active contributor on the old Anticon and Restiform Bodies message boards. Constantly hustling, promoting his art and music to anyone who will listen. More and more over the years, his name would come up. He'd open for us on tour, let us crash at his old warehouse (he used to live at the awesome DIY spot Rhinoceropolis in Denver....which every band and their mom has most likely played and/or crashed at). He's since become a great friend and tourmate to HEALTH, and recently came full circle and has finally released his own LP via Anticon this past Friday. 

Go ahead and pick it up here.

Rap Duo Not the 1s Launch Kickstarter Campaign by Matt Valerio

Rap Duo Not the 1s (Cuzzo D & Mawnstr) just launched a Kickstarter campaign for the 12" vinyl of their upcoming LP Everybody's Rappin'. The release will come out on Gold Robot Records later this year and will be a 12" picture disc with art by illustrator Matt Gondek. The album features guest appearances by the legendary Kool Keith, Riff Raff, and more. 

By pledging $100 or more to the project, not only do you help fund the release of the physical goods, but you also become a PART of the album. Matt Gondek will incorporate YOU into the actual art on the picture disc. How cool is that? Oh, and how cool is Mawnstr's amazing Juice t-shirt in the above video? Where can I get one?

Light In The Attic Launches Long Overdue Podcast by Matt Valerio

One of my favorite labels out today just launched a podcast series today. For this episode, they're talking about some upcoming Record Store Day releases, including their limited release of the Shogun Assassin soundtrack, and the long long Willie Nelson / Daniel Lanois collaboration album Teatro. Let's hope Light In the Attic continues this series for a long time.

VIDEO: Ceschi's Minute-and-a-Half Banger, "Forever 33" by Matt Valerio

This song smacked me square in the face when I heard it last week. One of those songs that when the beat drops, you practically break your neck, which in this case, might not have been a good thing since I was driving on the 405 in Los Angeles. As soon as it was done, which was fairly quick, since it's only about a minute-and-a-half long, I started it over twice more. He kills it on this. Check out the video above, and be sure to pick up his new, Factor Chandelier-produced album Broken Bone Ballads right here.
