Roll 'em

1. Regularly scheduled post on Black Dice interrupted to bring to your attention Hurricane Katrina freestyle #2: Catchdubs has posted Mos Def's "Katrina Clap." Daaaammn. Sounding downright Mr. Lif-ish on this. (Thanks to L-R for the heads-up.) OK, on with the show . . .

2. Don't front: Riff Raff had you indie nerds fiending for Black Dice remixes for like a month. Those DFA-holix among us without Harvard degrees and Pitchfork editorships make it a point to keep close tabs on Tim Sweeney's weekly "Beats In Space" radio show/podcast. And if you had, too, you'd have been listening to the much-sought-after Luomo remix of Black Dice's "Smiling Off" for the past ten days, chuckling each time you heard it because the ILX board is still begging for a YSI. To be honest, we thought about just not telling you at all. But since Black Dice are in town tonight to kick off the Broken Ear Record world tour at the Museum of Fine Arts, and we're sponsoring it and and therefore trying to encourage people to attend, we're sharing the wealth. On related note, "Snarly Yow" is our favorite song title of the week. It's gotta be about David Jesus Lizard, right?

LISTEN: Tim Sweeney, "Beats In Space, August 25, 2005" part one, part two (mp3)

In addition to Black Dice "Smiling Off (Luomo Remix)", we would like to bring attention to the inclusion in Mr. Sweeney's setlist of the Earons' "Land of Hunger." We are praying this becomes a hipster party anthem because we bought it for a quarter at Record Hog.
