Minneapolis duo Ant & Slug better known as Atmosphere is about to dropped their new album “When Life Gives You Lemons, Paint That ##@! Gold”. They have been pretty busy for the past few months releasing the Sad Clown series and then a free mixtape entitled “Strictly Leakage”. In honor of their upcoming release, they started an internet tv show called “Paint it Gold” where they take questions from their fans and answer them for all on the show. If your question gets answered on the show you get a limited edition of the new cd. They are on episode #4 (see below).
If you have any questions send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
They also premiered their new video for the single “Shoulda Known” Check it out here(caution: Adult Situation meaning not for you kiddies).
Atmosphere will in Chicago on April 22nd and 23rd at The Metro.
If you download it and listen to some of the music, let me know some of your favorite tracks. I will post some of my favorites after I finish downloading the file. While you are waiting for your download take at a look at some of the video coverage of the event. (Update) I just fond out someone took the time to review the over 768 songs that is included in the torrent. Check it out here.
I just saw this video from Jay Smooth of Ill Doctrine. He discusses the fact that Ashley Dupree (i.e. She ‘worked’ with Elliot Spitzer) might get a record deal. Put it this way, I think the music industry is so desperate to make a dollar they will do anything including exploiting a scandal. I love Jay Smooth’s take on it and how it relates to Hip hop and the music industry. How do you feel about it?
I mentioned on the air that Moby is releasing a new album entitled Last Night, and that I will share with you the first single called “Alice”. I want to know if you dig it, and if we should have it on the station. Leave a comment at the end of the post.
One of my favorite reggae artist is Damien Marlely. His album “Welcome to Jamrock” was amazing. Check out his premiere video for One Loaf of Bread(Something For You). It is off the compilation Gang War.The message is very powerful.
I was going to create a huge post on SXSW with resources. Being th lazy person I am, I decided to just post this video from one of my favorite internet show called Epic Fu. The first part gives a summary with links to free music.
Also Express Milwaukee is covering the event with a list of some of the Milwaukee Bands performing in Austin.
We get a lot of people asking about Sam Sparro. He is an Austrailian living in the city of Angels. His song, “Black & Gold” is in rotation here at RadioMilwaukee. His album drops soon over in the UK (no release date stateside). He just released a new video for Black & Gold, plus a free mix called “Songs Not Bombs” (hint: you can only get the mix if you live in the UK). Check the tracklisting for the mix and grab it. A perfect mix for the weekend.
