El-P "Rush Over Bklyn" Remix

2011-10-31

 
(via Pitchfork)

As previously reported, El-P's gearing up to release a new album, Cancer for Cure, on Fat Possum. Now, El has remixed first single "drones over BKLYN" as "Rush Over Bklyn", mixing in a sample from Rush's "Tom Sawyer". "Rush Over Bklyn" is the first official sample-based single release through Legitmix, a platform that allows producers and DJs to legally sample music from other sources without going through a sample-clearing process. (We previously posted about a mix Diplo did through the service.) Proceeds from sales of "Rush Over Bklyn" will benefit a fund for DJ/producer Mr. Dibbs, who is suffering from liver disease.

Yuck "Soothe Me" NPR Song of the Day

2011-09-29

(via NPR)

Musical influence is cyclical and recurrent. During a time of wistful looks back at the rapidly retreating decade of '90s rock, it's just as prudent to look expectantly to the gangs of new talent ready to inherit a legacy.

Yuck's knockout self-titled debut, released in February, didn't pack quite enough punch for the young British players, so they've repackaged the album with six new songs for a "deluxe" edition due out Oct. 11. The bonus tracks are hardly filler, with­ each more than holding its own, and "Soothe Me" stands as one of the more interesting examples. Leader Daniel Blumberg explores the polarities of his vocal range, with a deeper drawl only heard on the original album in "Suicide Policeman" or "Sunday." Blumberg's tone is gravelly, casual and uncharacteristically listless, but he quickly alternates it with a plaintive high-register cry: "Soothe me / Don't use me / I'm not your oxygen." The contrast is affecting.

Thoughthe comparison isn't made often, R.E.M.'s recent dissolution makes Yuck seem all the more valuable. Filling the void with a distinct mix of volume, sensitivity and precocious naiveté, Yuck is there to remind listeners of a time when distorted guitars and unsullied sincerity were
gripping enough.
