Digitalism: New video (Circles) + NYC Terminal 5 date

Upcoming U.S. Tour Dates

8/17 Baltimore, MD - Bourbon Street
8/18 Philadelphia, PA - Blockley
8/19 Washington, DC - 9:30 Club
8/20 New York, NY - Terminal 5

Digitalism’s new album I Love You, Dude has proven itself as one of this summer’s biggest albums, and now the band is sharing a new video for “Circles,” which Consequence of Sound premiered earlier today. The video also serves as a teaser for the band’s live show, which has been tearing up dancefloors coast to coast on the HARD Tour, which continues through this weekend when it wraps on August 20th at NYC’s Terminal 5.


Damn he got ripped. This song is tight hopefully his next album will be as strong as he his. The Chronic 2001 is still a masterpiece and gets played to this day. The imagery in this video is awesome, especially love all the flashbacks. Eminem kills it with the verse on this track, I love it when he is on his game. The ridiculous HP ad placement is disgusting but hey take their money. Still waiting on the DETOX........

The Glitch Mob ‘We Can Make The World Stop

“We Can Make The World Stop” is the title track from The Glitch Mob's new EP, which just hit online retailers and independent record stores across the world on July 12 (yes, they press vinyl and support independent retailers). The band is nearly finished with their 35 city summer tour which has seen them selling out large venues from San Francisco's Regency Theatre to NYC's Terminal 5. Highlights include triumphant sets at Red Rocks, the US's largest festival EDC, a return to Lollapalooza and Sasquatch to name a few. Their last show of August sees them headlining in their hometown at L.A.'s Club Nokia this Friday August 19th. The trio will continue on a handful of US dates including The Langerado Festival before crossing over-seas to conquer Europe this October and November.

New Gear from Bleep Labs: Neon Indian

I have loved Bleep Labs stuff for awhile now. The Original Thingamagoop was an amazingly fun toy. Very expressive and always fun to play with. Now Dr Bleep has teamed up with NEon Indian to make this new product. Here are some details.

This limited edition mini analog synthesizer is based on the Pico Paso with a few modifications designed by Dr. Bleep and Alan Palomo of Neon Indian. The biggest addition are swappable controls which allow you to easily attach the included potentiometers or photocells (or a number of other devices we’ll post about later) in any configuration to the three oscillators to create all kinds of triangle wave chaos.

- Two triangle wave oscillators which can be activated independently or together, modulating each other.
- Square LFO which affects the amplitude of both triangle oscillators.
- 1/4″ out.
- Screw terminals allow any resistive device to control the pitch of the three oscillators.

I also am a fan of neon indian and am excited to hear his new record. The new single sounds very promising...

Get everything from China cheap!!!!

Sick of paying the crazy mark up on accessories made by american corporations. Take advantage of this site and you will get the cheap prices that they get. Everything comes from china these days so there is no point in paying the middle man. This site has tons of stuff and it has free air mail shipping. no excuses. I use it for batteries, cables, lights, lasers, and a whole lot of other stuff. They have tons of Apple iphone and ipad accessories including earbuds and dock cables for under 2.00 dollars

Coachella Line Up 2011

Coachella Line up was released yesterday. Not a fan of most of it even though there are some really good acts. Just wondering where all the bands I have been listening to for the last year are. Really think Kings of Leon suck and should not be headlining a festival with such a great history. Also not a fan of Kanye West and really don't think he fits the vibe of that festival. Not to mention he is a douche bag. Don't really understand why people have such a hard on for his last album. It hurt my ears.

Anyway good to see the Black Keys and The Chemical Brothers on opening night but you know they will be playing at the same time which would really drive me crazy. There are a bunch of bands I could see but since I live in NY I will probably wait until these acts come around. I am sure the Strokes and Death From Above 1979 will play NY. Anyway with ever new coachella line up I always go thru and check out all the artists I don't know. It is a good way to find some new music if you have the patience.......

---[ VITALIC Tonight @ Webster ]---

Vitalic is one of those guys that doesn't come to New York often... which is a shame because he is one of the best. This unassuming French man is responsible for some of the most amazing electro you've ever heard: 'La Rock 01', 'Poney pt.1" and "My Friend Dario"are all classics... and he recently dropped an album with more amazing singles that made our ears pop... like this one, this one and this one). We've only seen him perform once before, and he was incredible. This is going to be a great night - don't miss it.


Friday Feb 26 at Webster Hall

VIKING + JDH & Dave P will also be deejaying.

---[ New Touch Guitar ]---

As I am getting increasingly excited over the idea of the ipad and Ableton live, I decided to do some searching on touch interfaces. In the upcoming years we are going to see more and more uses for touch technology. At first I was skeptical about the ipad, since having an iphone and a macbook book pro leave really no need for such a device. However if you think about how awesome it will be to use with Ableton is going to be really tempting. check out this new touch guitar I ran across

"The intersection of the classical instrument known as a guitar and the modernist urge to modify everything has resulted in plenty of nutty, zany, and just plain questionable products in its time. It's quite a pleasure, therefore, to point you in the direction of a so-called Digital Guitar that keeps the axe looking refreshingly familiar, while turning it into something that poses a legitimate threat of actually being useful. Essentially a MIDI controller, the Misa guitar has 24 frets and a large multifunctional touchscreen, which you can use to interface with the appropriate software on your pc. We've got a video demonstration after the break, and you can hit up the source link for more info including details on how you might be able to buy one for yourself."
