Let’s start this post with these video interviews with Mayer Hawthorne and SA-RA. The second is already a bit older but gives some insights on the creative partners.
The anticipated new album from Trus’me will be in stores on December 7, you can listen to snippets from every track on his SoundCloud page.
Another new album comes from my good friend Bruno Morais, who turned his back on his previous electronic productions to produce a very traditional recording of Brazilian music. You can watch his first music video on YouTube.
Detroit based Zo! is giving away his new EP …just visiting too, a collection of cover versions of artists like Minnie Riperton, The Jones Girls or The Isley Brothers.
Here’s one more on Mayer Hawthorne, his label Stones Throw has posted a live-recording of his song The Ills for you to download.
Two years after the release of his album Underwater Dancehall, dubstep producer Pinch is releasing remixes of the track “Get Up”. The track features Bugz in the Attic live vocalist Yolanda, who also lent her voice to Massive Attack before. Here’s a video for the track.
Brainfeeder’s Teebs has designed 100 unique 7-inch sleeves for the new Primary1 single. The artwork is currently exhibited at London’s Rough Trade store, where it is also being sold exclusively.
And lastly, go and visit Werk Discs‘ new website, home to artists like Lukid and Zomby.
Apart from the Lady Bugz thing, it has become terribly quiet about West London collective Bugz in the Attic. The winners of the remix competition never were put out on wax, a follow-up to Got the Bug has been announced with no release on the horizon.
Well, here is a video back from their album tour in 2006. It’s the rehearsal of “Happy Days”, with Kaidi Tatham and Thylord on keys, Motet and Hannah on vocals.
Update: Thanks to idleberg for pointing out there’s a photo-series from the same night.
