From the director:
“A shot-for-single-shot remake of LCD Soundsystem’s 2007 music video for ‘All My Friends.’ This is part exercise in lip-syncing and digital effects, part tribute to the band that no longer is.

Ritualz (†‡†) Accuses Chino Moreno of Ripping Him Off (via Crosses †††)

According to witch-house producer Ritualz, aka †‡†, Chino Moreno is “fuck(ing) stealing my shit” (via twitter).

Apparently Chino Moreno and former Far guitarist Shaun Lopez are launching a new project tentatively named Crosses (represented as †††). Due to this, Ritualz is “SO FUCKING PISSED RIGHT NOW ” (via twitter).

Do you think Moreno is blatantly ripping off Ritualz and more broadly attempting to capitalize on the underground, emerging witch-house genre?

You be the judge:

Beirut – Live at the Music Hall of Williamsburg

When I heard that Beirut had a new album coming I got excited. I’ve loved all of the previous albums including Mr. Condons electronic explorations with the March of the Zapotech EP.

Anyhow, when I heard the lead single, “East Harlem,” from the new album, The Rip Tide, it felt instantly familiar. Where had I heard it?

Turns out it is the opening track to my favorite Beirut album –which is actually not even a legit album at all. July 1, 2009 I came across “Beirut – Live at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.” It is one of my very favorite Sunday morning albums and like I said, is my go to when I want to hear Beirut. It’s tough to believe an album this well recorded, mixed & produced was never officially released.

So, my friends, I am happy to present that concert in full for you here. I hope you like it.

Check it out on Spotify.

There are a couple of tracks right now that are absolutely blowing my mind.

The Dalmation

INGREDIENTS
1.5 ounces black pepper simple syrup*
1.5 ounces Karlsson’s Gold Vodka or other vodka
3 ounces fresh grapefruit juice

INSTRUCTIONS
Combine the simple syrup, vodka, and grapefruit juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for about a minute; strain into an ice-filled glass.

*To make the black pepper simple syrup:
1/4 cup crushed black peppercorns
1 cup water
1 cup sugar

Place sugar, water and peppercorns in a small pot and bring to a boil, stirring once or twice. Once sugar is dissolved take off the heat and let cool. Leave the peppercorns in the syrup to lend it a stronger flavor; strain them out when it is spiced to taste.

I’ve seen horrors… horrors that you’ve seen. But you have no right to call me a murderer. You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that… but you have no right to judge me. It’s impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror… Horror has a face… and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies!
