Muffy Mommy – Dopeboy

October 23rd, 2008 by Larry

From the producer who brought you Lil Wayne’s A MilliBangladesh‘s new artist Muffy Mommy hits you with her new single, DopeBoy. I feel like the overall concept of this song is a similar effort to Estelle’s American Boy except it’s an ATL girl singing about how she is in love with dudes with fresh sneakers from the mall. Very deep stuff. At the very least, it’s original, local, and not another M.I.A. rip-off.

Ponderosa – Girl I’ve Ever Seen

October 22nd, 2008 by Larry

I was recently lucky enough to receive a copy of Ponderosa‘s newest album to preview. All I have to say is it’s great to know that there’s a band from Atlanta that is holding down the rock and roll scene with some class and authenticity. The track I’m posting is one of their slower/softer songs, but the breakdown in the middle that slowly builds back up is really one of the best uses of musical rests that I’ve heard in ages.

I know you can pick up their EP, and possibly this new album at their next show in town at the Star Bar on Saturday, November 1st. Do yourself a favor and go see Ponderosa.

THE WALL at Art House Gallery this Friday

October 21st, 2008 by Ted

thewall2.jpg

A revised version of my technology mash-up project called THE WALL will be installed at Art House Gallery @ 309 Peters Street this Friday October 24, 2008. It is part of a nighttime event called LE FLASH, a night of light taking place in Castleberry Hill consisting of over 30 installations, street performances, and exhibitions using electricity, light, and sound. It promises to be a sight for the eyes.

THE WALL is more than an electronic billboard, it is a social tool. It combines multiple existing technologies to put the power of large-scale public imagery into the hands of the local community. With it, a neighborhood can instantly share user-defined content with each other in order to communicate, inspire, and build a sense of community.

Email a photo from phone or computer to GO@ARTHOUSECOOP.COM Your photo will appear on THE WALL within 20 seconds

Visit http://thewall.arthousecoop.com to see THE WALL for yourself. Click the THE WALL icon to view the archive of all past submissions. As always, submissions are anonymous but fill-in the email’s Subject line to identify yourself. For more info, contact ted@epidemikcoalition.com

Kanye West – Heartless & Coldest Winter

October 21st, 2008 by Larry

Here are two more tracks that will be on Kanye’s new album, 808′s & Heartbreak, that is strategically coming out during the week of Thanksgiving 2008. The album’s release date has been moved-up from the previously announced December 16th date. Kanye has been quoted saying, “I want y’all to hear it as soon as possible”. He’s making it sound like he’s doing us a favor by pushing the album up, but he’s clearly trying to capitalize on psychotic Black Friday shoppers to increase his first week of sales.

Gone are the days of shutter shades. As you could’ve probably guessed, Kanye is still loving the auto-tuner as he continues to sing his way into a brand new genre of music: mainstr-emo-hop. Life can be sad when you’re a camera-smashing, sneaker-hyping, scarf-obsessed, robot from the future! No one understands you. Not even your legions of groupie-bots! Watch out Kanye, if you continue to encourage your fans to do more self-reflecting, they’ll start questioning their motivations to buy everything you put out.

Here’s a new tee that we designed for Heavy Mojo, a band that we recently just started working with. They will be on tour with Rehab this Fall and then later with Fishbone. This is Todd (Heavy Mojo’s Road Manager) holding up a fresh new tee that was dropped off right before their show Friday night. Keep a look out for future EC x HM tees.

Mayer Hawthorne – I’m Sorry

October 19th, 2008 by Larry

There’s not much known about Mayer Hawthorne, other than a recently inked deal with every hip-hopster’s favorite record label, Stones Throw, and this killer motown/doo-wop track. I’m sure more info will come to light soon and hopefully a few more tracks of this nature. I’m eager to see if this will be remixed-ala-MSTRKRFT and be the new underground club banger this winter.

Georgios and I were lucky to score some press credentials to the Rehab show at the Tabernacle this weekend. One of the opening acts was none other than hip-hop legends, 8 Ball & MJG. I was able to snap a few decent photos from the evening that I’ll post really soon. But first, here’s one of the tracks 8 Ball & MJG rocked with a live band!

Of Montreal + MGMT – Smells Like Teen Spirit

October 19th, 2008 by Larry

Athens darlings, Of Montreal, brought their carnival show to Roseland in NYC a little more than a week ago and were joined on stage for their finale by Andrew VanWyngarden of MGMT. Their cover of the 90′s anthem, Smells Like Teen Spirit was a little rough, but if you close your eyes while you listen to it, you can pretend like you’re a pony-riding, fluorescent vampire too.
