Small Professor is back, at least a small dosage for now. He has released a brand new set of instrumentals that he appropriately calls Nasty Jawns, six very nice tracks that will either inspire you to write some new lyrics or rhyme over them yourself. Maybe even better: inquire and ask him to create some all-new music for you.
Then again, if you have been paying attention this year, Small Pro has not left us and he will be around come 2014, with (I’m sure) more music for you to bow down to. May he be your temple.
It may be his last video of 2013 but it’s not the last we’ve heard from Martin Del Carpio. As he prepares for new music in 2014, he has created a video for the song “Adam”. If you like what you hear, you may download that track for free.
As posted yesterday, Swedish band Holograms start their tour tonight in Washington, DC and joining them for the festivities will be TV Ghost, the Indiana punk band who would like for you to hear and see what they’re about with their new video for the song “Others WIll Be Born. The tune can be found on their album, Disconnect (In The Red).
You may have heard or read about Kat Dahlia in recent months and if not, get to know her with this video for “Happy And I Know It”. Clapping your hands is optional, but it’s a song from her street album. While a man’s ass crack has been censored in the video, you can enjoy everything else that goes on within it. As for the street album, you can download Seeds: The Mixtape below.
You may love fish & chips as much as I do, but you may want to try some different varieties. Why not make it the way the French do.
Now you’re saying “wait a minute: the French also make fish & chips?” Well, there’s a certain way of doing it, and this is just one way. This comes from the French Guy Cookingchannel on YouTube.
If you’re looking to find out what kind of punk and hardcore Sydney has been offering as of late, you’ll want to be on the lookout for a quartet named Harbourer. After releasing a demo last year, they went into the studio to record some new material, three songs of which will appear on the record, described as being “emotionally driven grunge and hardcore influenced melodic punk rock”, which arguably sounds good to me. They worked with producer Clayton Segelov for this and those who had heard the demo before will definitely be blown away by what they’ve created here. This is the picture sleeve.
The record can be pre-ordered right now from Broken Hive Records. They have a few shows in the coming weeks so as the summer approaches in the southern hemisphere, check Harbourer out if you can:

If you are a hard copy fan, you’ll have to wait another week to have it but digital fiends will be able to buy a new installment of Neil Young’s archives series. Live At The Cellar Door is, as the title indicates, a live album recorded in 1970 at the Cellar Door in Washington, DC, in what were acoustic rehearsal shows for his then-forthcoming Carnegie Hall performances. As you know, Young was celebrating the success of his great After The Gold Rush album and was only a few months away from releasing what would become Harvest, but the way Young works, he may have had three more albums ready to record. The Cellar Door shows features performances of “Tell Me Why” and “After The Gold Rush”, along with renditions of Buffalo Springfiend’s “I Am A Child” and “Flying On The Ground Is Wrong”. You’ll also hear what were the public debuts of “Old Man” and “See The Sky About To Rain”, which wouldn’t be heard until February 14, 1971 when Harvest hit stores.
You may pre-order the album digitally, vinyl, or compact disc (in that order) below through Amazon.
For the next three weeks, Holograms will be in North American in support of their album Forever (Captured Tracks) which was released in September. TV Ghost will be along with them for the ride so barring any major weather issues, they may be in or near your city. Check them out if you can.
