This looks goddamn incredible!
Director Adrian Garcia Bogliano's '70s-style, Satanic, psycho-sexual, blood-and-fuck-flick 'Here Comes the Devil'
hits theatres and VOD on December 13th.
Whatever you do, do NOT

'Here Comes the Devil' @ MAGNET Releasing
Odd Future impresario Tyler, The Creator is back with "Tamale", another entry in a seemingly endless list of visually arresting clips to accompany his unique songcraft.
It helps that "Tamale" and "Answer", the two tracks served up here are some of the catchiest and heartfelt tunes on his outstanding 'Wolf'
LP, which is still in stores now.
Ben Pearce's "What I Might Do" was the opening cut on my last House mix
It's a certified banger.
This is actually the second video for the track.
The first looked a lot more like the record sounds.
This one looks a lot more like how you feel when the record come on.
DJ/emcee extraordinaire Edan gets busy with a mic, two turntables and a pair of Poets of Rhythm doubles to promote 'The Poets of Rhythm Anthology: 1992-2003'
, out now on Daptone Records.
Both Edan and the Poets of Rhythm are old Urban Alternatives dandies and I've been lucky enough to see Edan pull his rapping while cutting and scratching schtick live on several occasions.
The Poets of Rhythm are indeed funky as fuck, and Edan might be one of the best live performers, not to mention DJs, I've ever seen in my life, so cop the Anthology and catch Edan live some time.
Odd Future's own anti-R&B duo The Internet is back with an assist from The Neptunes' Chad Hugo and Mike Einziger on the super-funky dancefloor breakdown "Dontcha".
I think Syd tha Kyd is just the cutest goddamn thing and deserves to be a big ass star. But I wonder if Odd Future's resident lesbian might be too much for America to handle, even after Frank Ocean.
"Dontcha" is from The Internets sophomore record 'Feel Good'
, which is out September 24th via Odd Future Records. Help Syd become a star. Buy that shit y'all.
Flatbush ZOMBiES 'BetterOffDEAD' (.ZIP)
Beast Coast representers Flatbush ZOMBiES recall the likes of Ol' Dirty Bastard, Cypress Hill, Gravediggaz, and Three 6 Mafia. There's some crazy ass ignorant shit going on here, but at the same time they're on some way out mind expansion shit as well. It's a conundrum that fits a group called Flatbush ZOMBiES with a sophomore record called 'BetterOffDEAD'
They're unrepentant LSD users. And they don't apologize for their use of psychedelics at all. In fact, they want recognition for being the cats that helped make that shit cool in the hood again and "safe" for rappers to start talking about. That freedom of speech was something that appealed to me about the crew on their debut 'D.R.U.G.S.'
, and they aren't holding back on 'BetterOffDEAD'
Even if it's just another Rap trend, these emcees advocating the use of psychedelics could have a major impact, especially on young urban minds. If Afrocentric/Pro Black Rap, Gangsta Rap, Jiggy/Shiny Suit Rap, and Trap/Ratchet Rap can all have an effect on the youth, I'm curious to see what a generation of "turned on" urban shaman does to them.
NФΔH ஜ3 'ФℭҜvŁ† †ЯiŁŁ III: βŁΔ§† றΔ§†€Я †Ҥ€ЯiФ₦' (.ZIP)
The latest, and supposedly last, in Guelph emcee Noah23's 'Occult Trill'
series of mixtapes, subtitled 'Blast Master Therion'
, dropped a couple weeks back.
This one sees him spitting slowed down syrupy syllables riddled with references to Aliester Crowley and Robert Anton Wilson over all-original production.
As much as I dig his regular style I really hope 'Occult Trill III'
isn't the last we hear of his somewhat "screwed" Blast Master Therion persona.
