Caps + Jones + Bananas

BLADOWWW!!!. Certified Bananas July Mix (mp3). Update coming after we get a chance to listen to the damn thing . . .

Blogger/DJ madness returns tonight . . .

FRIDIZZLE: At a time when Internet insta-buzz and mixtape hype can make anyone a superstar DJ overnight, Caps + Jones are still New York City's best-kept secret. Their mixes (including their recent Moving in Stereo) employ ultra-quick edits and a ridiculously broad range of influences, but to call the style "kitchen sink" would be to discount the obvious attention that goes into each selection. And it's no different live -- call it "forward-thinking party music" if you must, but know that while you're chatting about it, valuable ass-shaking time is slipping away. Three bucks won't get you a pretzel at a Madonna, Slim Thug, or David Bowie show, but tonight it'll get you into Enormous Room to hear all three. With the unstoppable indie-crunk blends of Certified Bananas' P. Nice and the Audiovandal 567 Mass Ave, Cambridge 617.491.5550.

OH, AND . . .
Houston's great-white-hope Paul Wall chops&scrws . . . the Transplants? Billed as the first chopped/screwed rock album, which it is, but just remember: Certified Bananas did Modest Mouse first.
