BEMF

This Saturday is the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival at the Old American Can Factory in…Brooklyn!  The indoor and outdoor festivities get underway at 4 PM, featuring Young Love, 33hz, Shy Child, Designer Drugs and Jupiter One.  There is also a SUPER SECRET SPECIAL GUEST that will be announced via Twitter here the day of the festival.  We already know who it is, but we’re not telling.  So you’ll just have to go and check it out (and we recommend you do)!

Also, head over to the BEMF website to download some “pre-party jamz” here.

radiohead: new song

radiohead2

Radiohead just released their new single “Harry Patch (In Memory Of),” available for download on Radiohead’s website for £1.

The song is a tribute to late British World War I veteran Harry Patch, who was the last surviving UK soldier.

Listen and watch here.

Thom Yorke also wrote this on the Radiohead site today:

The proceeds of this song will go to the British Legion.
To peace and understanding.

MSTRKRFT

MSTRKRFT

There were certain bands this weekend that really confirmed “yeah, this is so worth it,” despite the mud swamps and the cold rain on Friday and again on Sunday.  Namely the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Crystal Castles, MSTRKRFT, Lykke Li and La Roux.

I’ve always felt partial to male frontmen, but this weekend really showed how f’ing amazing women leads can be.

Karen O. is an absolute rock goddess. Her on-stage antics and thrusts are exactly how I would want to rock out if I could sing.

We were FRONT ROW for Lykke Li. She kept doing this bad ass move of punching her chest, and I kept thinking “YES.”

La Roux was the reason I made myself get up to go on Sunday. Two songs that certainly stood out from her performance were “Bulletproof” and “In For the Kill.” I also felt complete after finally seeing her red-headed poof (that I admire so much), in person.

And lastly, seeing MSTRKRFT and Crystal Castles. MSTRKRFT is just ridiculous.  I only caught three songs, sadly, because we were coming back from Jay-Z, but they absolutely live up to the hype. And as for Crystal Castles, Alice Glass scared the crap out of me, and I loved every minute of it.
