kero kero bonito bo en remix

The original “My Party” is a winking, sugar-rushed nursery rhyme from the debut mixtape by bright-eyed South London trio Kero Kero Bonito. Today, somersaulting London producer bo en offers up a delirious, pitched-down remix of the track featuring scrambled dynamic shifts and the sound of barking dogs. The vocals are stretched so bilingual singer Sarah sounds stoned and a little bit creepy, and I can’t help thinking about that one childhood-ruining YouTube video of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen singing about pizza, artfully slowed down so it feels like a bad trip. Intro Bonito is out now on Double Denim.

Hayden Pedigo “Stray” feat. Danny Paul Grody

Facebook Twitter Email

The latest LP from Seattle’s killer Debacle Records comes courtesy of Amarillo, TX guitarist Hayden Pedigo. Five Steps veers between two sides of Pedigo’s musical spectrum: crisp, beautiful acoustic numbers that build upon his low-key debut album, and tripped out, blasted experimentation on the other (the side-long “Dream Theory Parts One-Four”). You’ll just have to wait to hear the rest, but for now you can grab a glass of whiskey, sit out on the porch, and let “Stray” soundtrack these fleeting sunny summer afternoons. It’s a gorgeous tune that gives a good indication of what to expect from the first half of the record; however, there should be further hints at the darkness to come from the album’s second half, so keep an eye out for more details from Debacle in anticipation of Five Steps’ October 28 release date.

Watch Rare Footage Of Pre-Pop Star Katy Perry From 2001

Facebook Twitter Email

katy perry 2001

Before she became one of the most famous pop stars in the world, Katy Perry was the almost-famous Katy Hudson, a Christian rock singer who was more Alanis Morissette than Madonna. Her eponymous debut album, released in 2001, was a total failure, selling only 200 copies, so Hudson changed her name, changed her looks, and ditched the gospel for THE DEVIL’S MUSIC and eventually became the Katy Perry we find ourselves singing along to when no one’s around.
