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
“Bright Lights Big City” is a collaboration between artist Ryan Stec and Jokers of the Scene from this past October in Toronto: a city wide synesthetic experience using North America’s largest LED lighting system, the CN Tower. Visible from anywhere in the city, citizens needed only to tune into CIUT 89.5FM to participate.

Four Color Zack and Pretty Titty were responsible for one of the funnest club nights in the US with their monthly Sing Sing bash from a few years back. So fun, in fact, that we released a 12″ collecting the most dancefloor-ready edits they made especially for the party.
FCZ and PT put their bash on hiatus for a while but are back and bigger than ever with a special holiday party this Wednesday! Check all info on the flyer above.
