A Place to Bury Strangers - Live in Fresno

I just wanted to take a few moments to share something with the few readers that I hopefully have left. As it may seem that this blog has been all but abandoned. I assure you that it isnt. but yea whatever... :)

Some of you may know that A Place To Bury Strangers is on a quick little west coast tour.

Saturday night they played in Fresno.

I was lucky enough to be asked to help promote, by designing the flyer. I also DJ'd the event and I also got to film the performance.

I'm just going to get this out of the way right now. Oliver Ackerman and crew are probably the most down to earth, sweetest people, that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. These guys deserve to be huge, because quite frankly... they care about their fans.


2 days later... my ears are still ringing. :)

and last but not least... srsly... these guys killed it.

I was absoultely blown away by the raw energy that these guys had. 3 men and a wall of sound and visuals that managed to cause every fiber of my being feel like it was being drowned in chaotic bliss.

If you get a chance to check this band out live, please do. You wont regret it.

Tell them I said Hi.

Oh and here's the first video that I put together from the evening.

More to come soon, I suggest subscribing to our Youtube channel.

Broken Social Scene

I just wanted to pop in and say... hello to everyone! I know its been a while, and I wont bore you with all of the "I've been super busy planning things" nonsense that I usually spit out when i havent posted in ages. But I will tell you this. there is a LOT of amazing music out right now, and if I get some free time this weekend I intend to write a blog about it.

But what brings us together today is... Broken Social Scene. I shouldn't have to tell you much about BSS. If you read my blog you should know that I'm a huge fan of canadian music. Broken Social Scene has a lot to do with that. As they are from Canada, and they are Amazing. and they have members that have been in and are in TONS of other amazing Canadian bands. Therefore, they have brought many many other amazing artists to my attention.

BSS have released a new single, "World Sick" for free download on their website. Its typical amazing BSS at their best. A massive army of guitars, peppered with synth and a small legion of drums and chorus. I can only hope this 7 minute epic is a reflection of what to expect from their new album "Forgiveness Rock Record" which is due to drop on May 4th. right in the middle of a World Tour that includes, San Francisco, London, Amsterdam and Toronto.

In other news, those familiar with me personally might remember a little old clubnight I used to have called POPSMEAR. from back in 2005 when I lived in Fresno. Well I got a call a few weeks ago asking if I would be interested in a Popsmear Reunion. Of course I was. So Sunday March 7th at the Starline in Fresno, I will be playing some old and new music with some old friends! I think its 5 bucks, but im not sure. just tell them you came to see me and you're on my guest list if you dont have a fiver.

Oh one more thing. ModModMod Friends, WALLPAPER. are headlining a pretty big show tonight in SF. You might have heard of it. NOISE POP. at Slims. You should PROBABLY Be there for this.
Other than that... I hope you all have a rad weekend. and try not to get to crazy with the cheeze whiz.

Other than that, I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Like a white trash drug dealer, DooDoo Face will destroy your life.

We're back, not that we really went away... BUT we got busy. However I simply had to put some time aside to warn you all about the new Wallpaper. record that just dropped 7 hours ago.


At 12am Sept 22 1999... er 2009, Wallpaper. released DooDoo Face. And your world got FUNKDAFIED and you didn't even know it. I've been puttin this platter on the decks for a while now at some house parties, clubs and even a few weddings... my god...I havent seen a dancefloor that packed since I got my special edition Love Shack remix EP.

I played it at this one wedding in Thousand Oaks, and HOLY CRAP! Everyone was instantly doodoo faced. It was like all that champagne decided to suddenly kick in. I even saw one chick punch a dude in his nuts AND his face AT THE SAME TIME when this song started. He was just tryna find his self a fine girlfriend yo. It was an instant brawl, but a not a brawl of hate... Im sayin it was a Love brawl. because the whole time people was shakin thier bootys and pouring more bubbly. It looked like one of those MTV videos that I make fun of with all the rap guys pouring champagne all over the ladies and stuff. My lady was head banging and shakin it too. she actually jumped through a door. it was closed. I went to help clean up after the weddding the next day... and all there was left was a hole in the ground. and empty bottles of champagne laying around everywhere.

Basically this record will change your life. and make you possibly make some bad decisions.

If you remember, I told you that you should keep your eye on this little project. back in 2007! Ever since I've been following and occasionaly filming Wallpaper at their shows around Cali. I even made sure that they got to play at my old Apple store. which was a fantastic hit.

Now the record is here, for you all. and it is full of funktastic elektro beats. This is the record that all the electro hipster kids WISH they could make. And this is the record that will bring Electro Funk to the mainstream. It's already half way there, since the video for "I Got Soul" got voted as the best newcomer on MTVU. Of course I voted for it half a million times, but that's besides the point.

Let me put it this way, I'm usually the dude with the wierd music taste. I've accepted this. I've accepted that I'll never see eye to eye with most of society based on musical preference. But I swear to god, Everyone I've shown this record too has been blown away and has gone a little nuts. Even my Brother In Law who is way cooler than me, because he's from Africa, went nuts when he heard it. There's something about those 1970's bass synth lines combined with modern electro hip hop that destroys sanity.

Pretty cool dude. a little funky with the sunglasses, but overall a pretty straight shooter.

I should point out that everyone was pretty normal at the begining of the night. well except for my lady but that's why i made her my lady.

So basically, what I am saying is. if you want to retain normality in your life. DO NOT BUY THIS RECORD. It has the ability to destroy your life. If you arent careful.

However. If you are a square peg lookin to find a round hole, then you should certainly check this record out!

Or if you just love frigging great music. And I mean GREAT music....
with a sense of humor and a LOT of wit. You should most definitley give the DooDoo Face it's Due.

Its out wherever good music is sold, or you can just buy it on ITUNES

You can also check them out this saturday at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco for the Album release party (did I mention that I'll be filming? so make sure you say hi!)

*disclaimer to my family. Hey you guys put the photos on facebook. You cant expect me NOT to use them....

So working for Apple and on The "UNINCORPORATED" Documentary, has left me little time for anything else... like actually updating this blog. So I figured I had better check in with you all and let you know that things are still moving forward.

We've had some awesome experiences with this project so far. Working with Dragonette, Wallpaper, The Telepathic and a few others.

We've got a few more acts lined up, but we need more. So if anyone knows of any artists that would be interested in a film interview to capture thier thoughts on the current state of the music industry, then please hit us up!

If you are not aware of what this documentary is about, allow me to briefly explain... Early this year I got the bright Idea to embark upon probably one of the most intense personal undertakings in my life. I decided that since nobody was really telling an in depth story about what's happening in and around the music industry (you know... like how bands are sick of getting screwed and everyones going at it their own way, and the industry still cant figure out how to conduct business properly etc etc etc.) That I would put together a film getting artists viewpoints on everything from being signed, to not being signed to unauthorized downloading to getting their music on iTunes.

I honestly started out trying to make a very balanced film that told both sides of the story, But the further I got into it... I wasn't finding very much good to tell about the major label side. So far its been a very eye opening experience. The stories I've come across are really amazing stories. The differing viewpoints that I've heard from bands, often times complete opposite opinions within the same band. But I need more. I need your band. I need major bands still, I need indie bands still. I need Industry people to tell their side of the story. This is a story that everyone seems to love talking about, but no one has really sat down to tell the tale and capture it on film.

this is my plea. I need more bands. I need you!

Other than that, I just started working on volume 4 of Joymodes Jukebox Sampler. I know I know I skipped out on that one last year, but thats what happens when you're on the road 24/7, as I was in 2007. So I'm thinking I might make this years release a Deluxe version. like I did a few years ago.

And just because I haven't been reviewing music much these days, doesn't mean there is a lack of it to be reviewed. Or better yet, It doesn't mean that I haven't been listening to TONS of new stuff, that is absolutely blowing my mind.

I'll throw you a couple bones on that one.

Make sure you check out Screen VInyl Image. One of the latest Electro / Psychadelic / Experimental bands from the Big Apple that have been caught up in the influence of perfect noise that only Death By Audio pedals can create.

And then there's the debut album form DFA1979 alumni Sebastien Grainger Probably one of my favorite records from 2008. Especially since I've been waiting for it since the middle of last year.

And of course theres the new Ohgr record. Probably the of the last men on earth actually making what I consider to be REAL INDUSTRIAL music. Would you expect it to be any other way though? Industrial is in my blood, and this record got it pumping and gave me some chills while it was at it.

While we're on the subject of Ohgr, you should also know that hes in an Industrial Rock Opera. Yes I said that correctly... Its called Repo, and its playing in a few select artsy type cities. The soundtrack is Killer.

So obviously there is so much more to discuss. So much more music. So many more ideas, like a possible bi weekly video podcast to discuss / argue about music... I just have to find a good bar to shoot it in. Or get a really good couch so I can really rip off Diggnation properly.

In the meantime you can follow what I'm doing on Twitter.

Until next time.

Tra la la.

The Telepathic Sneak Peak

I've been working with a band from the bay area called The Telepathic. They are currently in the studio plotting world destruction. And I spent the weekend filming them. It was good times. Here's a little snippet of what to expect!

A brief snippit of one of our craziest nights in quite a while.

A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to film the marvelous Wallpaper! We filmed two shows in one night. One show at a club in downtown LA and one show at a ghetto house party in Korea Town LA. Where we almost got killed by some drunk fighting gang bangers.

It was all worth it though, because we had a total blast filming Wallpaper. Heres some of the footage. Extra special thanks to Dustin from "How to be a microwave" for editing it!
