My boy Mikey runs the site Badical Beats
and is putting on a free party at SXSW on FRIDAY.
His band is Afghan Raiders
… I am new to these guys but so far so good. It’s pretty rad for them to be playing with some of these bands, it bodes well for their future, for sure. Congrats on the show guys.
Girls, who I have blogged about quite a bit here, are the one band I am probably most excited about right now. I can not wait for new material from these guys. And what do you know? My boy has them at his party! So great, I wish I could be there…
Afghan Raiders - Solid Gold
Lemonade - Real Slime First Bounce (Mashepest Remix)
Micachu & The Shapes - Sweetheart
Micachu & The Shapes - Golden Phone
You might remember our coverage of Lemonade back in Volume Five. The Mashepest mix (done by a 17 year old kid from the UK!) was one of the greatest remixes I heard last year.
It seems enough people picked up on the Lemonade craze that their label, True Panther (also home to Girls who had one of my favorite songs of 2k8 with
), decided to put together a remixtape… and give it away for FREE!
You can check out a pretty cool interview with the guys over at XLR8R.
