Welcome to my glorious mess.

It’s very easy to sleep walk in ATL and miss out.

Posted in El Anatsui at The High Museum of Art, Interview mp3 with MoMa by Dom Brady on January 24, 2008

It’s too easy, IMO to sleep walk in ATL and miss out on the most amazing things. Remember the African artists’ work I was enamored with not long ago at The High? Well, apparently I’m not the only one. El Anatsui has a dope interview with the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Sustainability is at the center piece of what he does. He tells his students that they shouldn’t have to pay for the media they work in. That’s a lesson for all artists in how to approach their game- it’s easier to play if you don’t have to pay. Be sure to check out his work over at the High Museum of Art.

Until then? Enjoy the interview (TRT 15:00)!


Okay, it sucks that Deerhunter has broken up…

Posted in Atlas Sound by Dom Brady on January 22, 2008

It sucks that Deerhunter has broken up, dissolved or has taken a break- whatever you want to call it, but this Atlas Sound project from former Deerhunter frontman Brandford Cox under the moniker Atlas Sound is actually kinda intersting. Very Electronic. A portion of one of his tracks is actually on Grits ‘n Gravy Vol 11. Check out his myspace for more info. Several promo singles are already making their rounds on the web.

It’s a Society affair…

Ah yes…giving away new stuff makes me happy. It makes me smile. You can’t see it, but I’m ear to ear with it right now. Why? Because Not only do have have the GREAT news that The Audubon Society’s mixtape is nearly complete or that they have exclusives from the likes of Stacy Epps, Kid Kaos (of Vintage Imperial) and MC J-mil (of the Collective Efforts Crew), but I’ve got some FREE & LEGAL goodies from the Y-Society and Wale. Some of you might remember Insight of the Y-society from his 2007 A3C performance here in Atlanta (he was the dude walking around pouring everyone very tasty fruit juices while free-stlying). For complete coverage of 2007’s Independant Hip Hop festival check out the videos, articles and mp3 coverage here at MP3.com. DC has been on it lately, haven’t they? All of a sudden we’re getting some noise from Mash Comp (of Dumhi), Tabi Bonney, Wale, and now Y-Society.

Maybe they see B-more getting love with this dance music craze and decided to get their halal hustle on. I’m not mad at those DC cats. Forever known for Go-go and the Potomac two step, DC is now joining the getting louder by the second noise makers from Baltimore and Virginia. The Middle East (Mid-Atlantic) hasn’t been this interesting since Saddam’s heyday. Today is DC hip hop appreciation, and we’ll kick it off with some free music from Wale and Y-Society. If you haven’t been checking this blog, then you’ve probably missed earlier offerings of Wale’s music. Shame on you. Luckily, I’m forgiving. We all deserve second and tertiary chances.

…On a programming note (ha!) remember to check out Dj Klever, Collective Efforts and Arrested Development Jan 24th at The Loft.

Download this treat from Damu and Y-Society and get caught up on Wale’s exploits while you stew in anticipation for the latest release from Atlanta’s own Audubon Society.
