If you’ve been following this here blog you already know about Telephoned, the not-quite-covers project of FG producer/DJ Sammy Bananas and singin’ machine Maggie Horn. In the interest of spreading their joyful noise to the world at large, we’re dropping their debut self-titled EP this Tuesday (1/19) featuring tracks like their take on The Dream’s “Rockin That Thang,” which Pitchfork just featured on their daily Forkcast.
You can preview these EP tracks and much more on Telephoned’s new mixtape, Off The Hook, which you can download at RCRD LBL.
And for more hottt dial tone action, come out to the official Telephoned release party at Ella in NYC on 1/20, featuring a live performance and DJ set from the duo, who will be joined on the decks by Cubic Zirconia and FG’s own Nick Catchdubs. Flyer after the jump! Read More
The Scion Space will soon be hosting Installation 6, where they “challenged 10 artists to create non-narrative video installations that will eventually transform five unique exhibitions around the country.” One of these artists is none other than our esteemed art director Dust La Rock, whose animated short “Occult Of Personality” is featured in the project.
The opening reception is January 23rd in Los Angeles (Culver City to be specific) and Dust and all the other artists will be in attendance – go and check it out before it moves on to future locations in Austin, Wichita, Minneapolis and Brooklyn. Read More
