alright sorry i had such a long hiatus. finals, promotionals, flying, moving, whatever. it all happened, and it all got in the way of me being a productive blogger and allowed that chitinous crustacean curmudgeon take over the blog (which is originally his but).  SO, i'm going to make it up to you. 

 a seasonal harvest-sized, peasants-dancing-in-the-barn post of dubstep, house, a couple beat tracks and other electronic goodness (including MOOMBAHTON). Links aren't posted here, but rather if you follow THIS LINK you'll find a text file of this post with links attached.

New Weeknd

More baller shit from the elusive production duo and their badass singer. Sounds a bit like an outtake from House of Balloons, but with some distinctly new and exciting sounds in the mix (DEM SNARES).

Make sure to grab the aforementioned tape for free HERE, and get pumped for their upcoming tape, Thursday. Perhaps to be released tomorrow (i.e., 6/16)? They've been dropping warnings lately...

Stepdad - Ordinaire EP

This is pt. 7304857 in a series of posts entitled, "Patkins is a lazy fuck and El Langosta feels obligated to keep up appearances." (he's actually been out of town at some awesome music festival, so I really can't blame him. it's just really fun)

Stepdad are an awesome synthpop group from Michigan. Their lead singer is known only as "Ultramark." Their song "My Leather, My Fur, My Nails" has been stuck in my head for a month now, and my eyes are continually dazzled and delighted by the accompanying video, which you may watch below.

Today, I found that my craving for more Stepdad had boiled over, so I caved and dropped the $1 (!!!) necessary to procure their Ordinaire EP. And man, am I impressed. This was just what I wanted: a cornucopia of fun, catchy, and colorful pop tunes, with a few splashes of 8-bit and a healthy dose of the 80's. They've got a great sound and they do a lot with it. But Stepdad are no one-trick ponies: every song comes with its own feel and a unique set of sounds; sometimes I hear the spectre of Gobble Gobble's ecstatic dance-pop melodies, at other times I hear shades of fellow Michiganers Tally Hall in the vocal production...basically, this EP impresses the hell out of me.

My Leather, My Fur, My Nails - Stepdad

Grab this if nothing else. Maybe after a month you'll wind up doing the same thing I did and getting the EP out of sheer craving for more of this badassery.

They're working on an LP, Wildlife Pop, which is being produced by none other than Chris Zane. If that doesn't mean anything to you, let's just say that Patkins and I have an unhealthy obsession with Passion Pit, whose INCREDIBLE first album, Manners, was produced by Chris Zane. So you can imagine how excited this makes me.

So you should really go grab the EP. It's essentially 8 slices of epically good pop music, and you only have to pay $1 for it, though you're allowed to pay more. You will not regret it.

It's over at their Bandcamp.

Stay sparkly, folks.

Lobster out.

New Skrillex EP Preview

1. First of the Year (Equinox)
2. Ruffneck (Flex)
3. Ruffneck (FULL Flex)
4. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (Dirtyphonics Remix)
5. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (Phonat Remix)
6. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (The Juggernaut Remix)
7. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (Kaskade Remix)

Yeah, feel obliged to do this. First original sounds like a carbon copy of his iSquare remix except without all the, well, iSquare; second two tracks sound decent. The remixes, on the other hand, sound frickin boss, and pretty diverse to boot (Phonat and Kaskade?? tiiiiiight). And that Dirtyphonics remix is off the chizzain...Skrilly + DnB/Drumstep has been a long time coming. In fact, you should check out/grab that FACE-SMASHER of a track HERE.

And although I was a bit lackluster in reviewing his new productions just now, I can hardly blame the guy; he lost the hard drives with all of his (probably epic) new material earlier this year, so it looks like he wound up having to start from scratch.

Also, I love that he's badass enough to suggest that you torrent it if you can't buy it...what a G. We will surely aid you faithful readers in that quest when the time is right.
