Feadz Readies EP

Feadz is a name we've heard since the Ed Banger Records crew first turned electronic music's collective consciousness towards Paris, but the man behind projects like Uffie and remixes for Boys Noize, Krazy Baldhead, and Modeselektor only just released his first single last year.

Sound in Light finds Stones Throw's Koushik working alongside a few of his Hamilton, Ontario-based friends, producing '70s-informed jazz with an experimental twist. Apparently they make videos too, and this one is a surreal montage of purples, blues, and graphic effects that place it somewhere between jazz club and haunted house. The song originally appeared on the Now Again:Resounds release.

Friday Fun Blog: Everything is Terrible

The website, which offers daily postings of ridiculous videos and forgotten footage from the past, basically operates as a rummage pile for YouTubers to geek-out on.

Matthew Herbert: Pig Sounds

Matthew Herbert—the man who, in the past, brought us songs made from food samples and a hyper-conceptual Iraq War protest record (as Radio Boy)—will return next year with a new offering entitled The Pig.
