Diplo's podcast and other stories

Some stuff we didn't have time to blog last week . . .

1. "NPR FOR THE STREETS": MAD DECENT RADIO. Put "Diplo" and "podcast" in the same sentence, and we'll show you an internet traffic jam waiting to happen. Add the terms "baltimore club" and "DJ interviews" and "random bits of music you'll never hear again", and you've got a recipe for blogger/DJ pandemonium. Gentlemen, start your aggregators ...
2. Mr. Lif resurfaced with an official leak from his upcoming solo album. It's . . . a love song? With girl moans? Hmmmm . . . We're all in favor of conscious dudes trying to throw a little freakplay into their lecture series, but is it rude of us to say that dude still talks too much? Remember when he used to rap? The El-P production isn't terrible. But as chunky guitar samples go, Edan's still got nothing to look over his shoulder about. El-P was was quoted last year describing "Long Distance" as the prospective lead single to Lif's disc, which makes us wonder: can it really be all downhill from this?

3. Daft Punk is playing at Juan's house.

4. Novelist Sam Lipsyte mp3-blogs his buddy Juan's old band.

5. Mark Ronson, Dap horns, Phantom Planet dude do Radiohead.

6. Postal Service remixes Feist.

7. Rcade Inferno. No relation to Arcade Fire.

8. Famous for 15 Megabytes (via Jace).

9. Kids bop: Jack Johnson's cover of White Stripes' "We're Going To Be Friends," from Curious George. Also, Broken Social Scene's too-weird-for-kids version of "Puff the Magic Dragon."

10. The new Caps + Jones mixtape. So so dope.
11. Above is no relation to the CD version of the Caps & Jones/Certified Bananas Lemon-Red mixes. Which are in turn no relation to the expanded CD versions of the Rub's Lemon-Red mixes.
