Passage interviewed by Yoni Wolf by Matt Valerio

My longtime friend and former bandmate David Bryant (Passage) sat down with Yoni Wolf recently for Yoni's excellent podcast series The Wandering Wolf. If you've ever been a Restiform Bodies fan, or ever known David, this is an absolute must-listen. The dude has been through a lot. Throughout the hour and a half discussion, they talk about David's history, his battles with addiction, and his plans for the future. Check it out above, or download it for free on iTunes

Passage - "Stressanomics" by Matt Bomarr

My "bandmate" and best buddy Passage released his Pass and Touch EP via Marathon of Dope this week. This EP is a slight variation of his highly sought after self-released EP Pass Money Multi, and is now available on a much wider scale (whereas Pass Money Multi was only available direct from him). Nine tracks in all, this is some of my favorite stuff of his from the past couple of years. You can pick the whole ep up for cheap right here, or any other place you buy mp3's online. Passage has also stepped up his internet game lately, and you can now find him on Twitter, and check out his Tumblr blog right here.

Machina Muerte week continues on the Bomarr Blog.  Here's a brand new Passage remix of Tucson's crimekillz (formerly CRIME).  Completely different from the original, but just as nasty.  These guys have a new record coming out on Gonjasufi & Mainframe's A1R label in the coming months, so you'll be hearing more about them here soon. soundcloud passage blog

Isaiah Toothtaker - "Intruder" by Matt Bomarr

Isaiah Toothtaker is back (not that he ever went anywhere) with this banger of a track from his upcoming Illuminati Thug Mafia record (which drops on Machina Muerte Jan 25).  This track was produced by Wavves drummer Jacob Safari, and has a somewhat NSFW video companion piece to go with it. The video features lots of graphic footage, alongside imagery of Isaiah and Full Force Frank (a zine publisher from the 80's who promised to one day commit a massacre, and then mysteriously disappeared).  Also, the song steals the hook from the Antoine Dodson/Gregory Brothers "Bed Intruder" song.  This record is going to be amazing.  Look for Isaiah on my upcoming solo record, and look for more Machina Muerte-affiliated folks to take over the blog this week, including Passage's remix of a Crime track, and a rough mix of my track with Zackey Force Funk. website

Ryan Breen is a prolific guy.  Over the past few years, as Back Ted N-Ted, he's done records with Coppe', worked with Chronic Future, Brothers Backword (Passage & Mike Busse), remixed and toured with Imogen Heap, contributed songs to awesome little 7" compilations and still found time to record an amazing record (rumored to be titled A Jet Made of Limos), which is still unreleased and hopefully due this year.  He has an incredible knack for writing songs and meticulously constructing beats in the studio, working hard to make sure every single song is something you'll want to listen to over and over again.  He's just made this remix of Gucci Mane's "Lemonade" available for free online.  While you wait for his full length, go check out the impressive little Hookie single he released at the end of last year. myspace buy
