Pusha T is far and away my favorite rapper out there right now. You probably know him from the records he made with his duo, Clipse. Since then, he’s been brought into the GOOD Music fold by Kanye and I’m psyched to be seeing him get even more exposure than ever. His Fear of God mixtape has been getting me through the summer. Can’t wait for Fear of God 2.
Sublime Frequencies are a label based in Seattle that release music that would just never see the light of day without their hard graft and passion. Releasing new talent and discovering music from tropical kingdoms never explored, they really know what they’re into and put things out that are so carefully researched and beautifully put […]
I typically hate YouTube, based on the experience of hanging out with friends and someone says, ‘Hey, check out this video’, and three hours later, you’re bored as hell watching things that someone else thinks is hilarious. Anyway, I like Bruce Springsteen, so here’s a video that was sent to me by a friend a […]
We dig the electric, pulsating sound of the new single, Amber Hands, from London band S.C.U.M, which dropped this week. The band are Guest Posting for Lost At E Minor this week about their favourite cultural discoveries.
The mix from Beats in Space 04.05.11 contains the longest clip I could find of her remix of Max Essa’s (ft. DC Mathias) How Do You Feel (starting at 12:18). And that remix is the shit! Such nice sounds, such nice groove, such nice hi-hats. Dreamy, laid back house that just keeps flowing like a […]
It took me some time to realize that D.A.F is crazy good. The funkiness of the production just makes the feet move. If you want to learn German, it’s really good to listen to D.A.F because they keep repeating every phrase over and over.
Some voices just need some ageing and some melodies are better not fully structured. Here it sounds like Damon Albarn is very eager to express something: his words are just flowing. I love the sad and comfortably numb feeling the song creates. This also makes me think of the Blur song, Out Of Time.
They all met in London, but are from different parts of Japan. The first time I saw Bo Ningen was in a basement in King’s Cross and I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears; beautiful psychedelic guitar noise that went from intense Boredoms and Branca-like repetition, to deathly quiet bouts of creepy Japanese wailing and […]
This is Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks backstage in the early 1980s sharing the demo of her new song with her backup singers and make up artist. The final argument for why demos should not be messed with.
Here Comes The Mobster is the latest work by Fab design studio for Big Charlie’s new single. It’s a mix of 2D and 3D animations, blended together in a dark, original style: ‘You may like living a peaceful and happy life. But what if a massive blurred black blob invades the city and a business […]
OC-based hip hop-electronica band BLOK is more like performance art for your ears. They’re not your typical young musical group coming out of SoCal, but honestly I’ve had enough indie folk to last me a lifetime. Made up of Damien Blaise, Jesse Saint John, and Gianna Gianna, these three siblings have a new music video, Jungle Dog Fang Hell.
I have worked alongside Allie Moss for nearly a year and heard her new album, Late Bloomer, around the end of last year. The album opens with a familiar song, Corner, which was featured on the BT Infinity advert in the UK last year. Her beautiful voice, combined with her gentle acoustic songs, makes it […]
A friend of mine sent me this clip and it grabbed me because it combines so many great things all at once. It’s not an official video. It’s made by some genius remembering ‘the good old days’. I love the clash between nature and clubs. I mean, look at the strobe sweeping the snowy mountaintop […]
Norwegian band Team Me produces warm songs from a very cold place using a diverse array of instruments such as traditional accordion and violin alongside bass and guitar. I just wish they’d play more often outside of Europe.
