For the last week or so we’ve been seeing subtle hints at something called Potato Will Eat You from these three’s social media.

I personally was hoping for the love child of Skrillex, Fools Gold and Mad Decent, destined to be on repeat for at least 3 days in my car, but yesterday we got eaten by a more visionary announcement, so kudos to these guys for looking out for the little guy.

It turns out Potato Will Eat You is a joint venture You Tube channel, where they’ll premiere new music, programs and DJ mixes. The verdict’s still out on what this will actually mean, but we got our first serving today with Diplo’s “BUTTER’S THEME” ft GENT & JAWNS.

Screw the man. Artists should rule the world.

NEW PHOENIX | ENTERTAINMENT JUST IN TIME FOR COACHELLA

Christian, Branco, Thomas and Deck.

I love these French boys, but based on this track, it sounds like their long awaited new album might sound just like their last one, which was amazing nevertheless.

Bankrupt! may not be revolutionary, but it’ll still be Phoenix. I hope they surprise us at Coachella with more. Look for it in April.

I GUESS YOU CAN CALL THIS A REVIEW | SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS

 

As soon as I saw my news feed blowing up with tweets and posts about LCD Soundsystem’s SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS yesterday, I whipped out my phone, and texted my most reliable music roll dog: ”Dude I wanna go see the LCD doc! IT’S ONLY TONIGHT!! Gonna sell out. Not at a computer. Can you get tix at Arclight??” Low and behold he was on his way to the Arclight to see Spiderman, and snagged us two of the last seats available.

Talk about good timing.

I was lucky enough to see LCD Soundsystem live at the Hollywood bowl a couple summers ago. James Murphy and his self-proclaimed “weird thing” instantly became one of my favorite music acts, and their popularity only seemed to only be growing until they hit us with the break up news out of nowhere–Last show at Madison Square Garden in NYC on April 2, 2011. WTF??!!

I walked into the screening expecting a movie turned dance party like the Chemical Bros’, DON’T THINK, a few months back, but SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS was different.  We snuck in a couple of beers and a screwdriver filled water bottle, sat in the front row, and finally found out what the hell happened.

The epic performance and hearing LCD’s hits on whatever “6-track discrete magnetic sound” means aside, I have a lot of newfound respect for the man. When a successful rock star looks in the mirror, and sees the grey patch on his neck, his ability to leave fame in pursuit of love, family and real happiness is breathtakingly admirable.

James Murphy is a legend.
