Orange Alert's Music Minute

On June 30th, the French label KUSKUS will release the latest single from Vivek Shraya's 2007 release If We're Not Talking. The single will consist of the title track from the album along with two floor shaking remixes from Rodion and Ben Mono. You can stream the Rodoin mix at his myspace page.

Also check out the finished video for "Power" produced by Dinosaur Factory Studios.

Announced this past week, the F Yeah Tour will kick of on June 17th and run through July 13th. This tour will perform 28 shows in 28 days, and will feature some of the best talent around. Matt & Kim, Circle Jerks, Dillinger Four, The Death Set, Monotonix, Dan Deacon and more.

F*%! Yeah Fest is an annual music/comedy/art festival held in Los Angeles at the end of each summer curated by 22 year old Sean Carlson and Keith Morris from The Circle Jerks & Black Flag. This year will be the fifth installment and it will take place in an outdoor setting in downtown LA on August 30th & 31st and will now be known as F Yeah Fest. It's been Carlson's goal for some time now to take the festival on the road, bringing the spirit of the festival to other cities, and now for the first time that dream has become a reality with the first annual F YEAH TOUR '08, featuring many bands and comedians that have become staples / favorites at the festival. The Fest will be touring in a 44 passenger '92 Bluebird Bus. The only goal for this tour is to have fun.

For the specific line-ups and venues please visit the f yeah site.

The Elleoner, Campbell, S2K and the Blue-Eyed Devil are Heroes of Popular Wars, and they are going to play three shows this month with another Orange Alert favorite Cyanide Valentine.

You can also download their free ep, Revolution of the Hips, at their website.

Last year I loved the Flying Lotus debut ep, it was a sonic adventure back through time and into an era of where the producer drove the sound of hip-hop. His beats were clean and complex, and gave us something to look forward to. Signing with Warp records, he is now ready to release first full-length, Los Angeles, on June 20th.
To celebrate the release of Positive Thinking! by Rae Davies, Exponential Records has released Rae's remix of Flying Lotus' "Tea Leaf Dancer" from the Reset Ep.
