With his debut album, 2006's Breaking Kayfabe, just dropping in the UK this past week, and word spreading about the nature of soon to be released follow-up, After Party Babies, I thought it was the perfect time to get in touch with Cadence Weapon. His interview with Orange Alert will appear on October 12th, but in the meantime you can reacquaint yourself with a couple of the Kayfabe classics. Listen to: Sharks (mp3) and Black Hand (mp3)
This band has really been receiving a lot buzz lately, but it has all been warranted. Earlier this month the band released its fifth album, Good Bad, Not Evil, and this also marked the groups first studio album for VICE Records. The album brilliantly covers everything from dirty psychedelic blues songs to fuzzy lo-fi pop ditties. Black Lips have been all over the place lately, but my favorite was their recent appearance on the Spinner's Interface. Listen to: Cold Hands (mp3)
