Ottoman Empire are in the midst of producing an amazing Splendour 2011 piece. Once I have the converter that allows me to import files to FCPro in an avi format (so that it has decent sound and picture quality) I can go about sorting through the 180 (ish) videos taken over the weekend. And then I’ll take a look at all of Bjear’s from his iPhone. Keep an eye out, this is going to be mint. Eventually.

It’s impossible to see everybody you want to at a music festival. The key is to balance your day to obtain the perfect balance of bands, rest and food. Sacrifices have to be made when you travel in a group too in order to avoid conflict. Usually this will result in underlying tension but sometimes it turns out to be a blessing in disguise I discovered when Bjëar dragged me along to see Wild Beasts at the G.W McLellan Tent at SITG.

It’s safe to say I was blown away by their live set and instantly (when I got home, obviously I couldn’t do it on the spot) downloaded their back catalogue (sorry lads, I don’t have the cash to buy your music, but I love it.. isn’t that enough?).

Swag ‘The Devil’s Crayon’ below and get acquainted with one of the better indie bands circulating the scene at the moment.

Ahhhh I have an enormous back catalogue of tunes I am trying so hard to get through at the moment… It’s so typical that I get a massive influx all at once and have nowhere near enough time to listen to it all. On the go I have Foster The People’s inceredible debut from earlier this year, the new Arctic Monkeys record and Bon Iver’s highly-anticipated sophomore effort. Then I have The Black Angels psychedelic experience and Kate Bush’s latest albums to review (I’ve had the latter for a few weeks now and I’m not even close to getting into it).

Couple all that with my ridiculous obsession with pop music in the form of Chris Brown (F.A.M.E) and a bit of Bieber’s My World 2.0 and a healthy dose of Saturday night dub-step/dance and you have yourself one massive fucking musical dilemma. I think I’ll just go to sleep instead…

Mama’s Boyfriend

If you haven’t already swagged the f*ck out of Kanye’s new beat here’s your chance. Check it, download it, just enjoy the shit out of it!

Kanye West – Mama’s Boyfriend


A track purporting to be a new song from Kanye West has been labelled as a fake by the artist’s label.

Universal released a statement today expressing their disappointment over the leak and claimed the song is “entirely bogus and unsanctioned, and violates the artist’s creative intentions.”

As is often the unfortunate case, an unknown party or parties got a hold of Kanye West’s vocal track and added their own soundbed to it, effectively and falsely releasing it as a Kanye West track from the ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ sessions.

The result in no way resembles the final song Kanye West intended his fans to hear, and he is deeply disappointed that one of the most personal, meaningful and special songs he has ever written would reach people in this way.

The statement finished with a warning to whoever may be responsible for the leak.

“Needless to say measures are being taken to identify and prosecute the persons responsible for leaking this material.”
