I’m extremely proud to unveil the 6th installment of my PRINTS series. The song is called “More Than Normal,” and it features the incredible rapper, Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover). And yes, that’s me singing on the choruses.
Donald and I were connected by some mutual music friends, and we wound up collaborating back and forth via email to create this one, Postal-Service style.
Indie Shuffle was kind enough to premiere the song yesterday, and it has since hopped around the internet a bit, including nice mentions on Rapdose and Hilly Dilly. Hope you guys like it, and stay tuned for some more goodies over the next few weeks!
YO YO YO YO YO YO YO YO YO YO YO… YO!
Thrilled to present the brand new video for “Old-Fashioned Girl,” featuring my #1 Big Data bandmate and homey, Daniel from Joywave. The video was directed by the brilliant Michael Lawrence, and we co-wrote the story together. It stars the weird and wonderful internet-personality and self-proclaimed “z-list celebrity,” FAT JEW.
We shot the video on location in Coney Island and around Brooklyn, using Kodak film (who even shoots on film anymore?), and we’re all super-crazy-pumped with how it turned out.
The video premiered yesterday via Pigeons and Planes. Check it out, please share it / post to FB / re-blog it / spread that shit, baby!
On a related note, this one and other PRINTS jams will finally be available digitally via iTunes, Spotify, RDIO, etc… starting next week, so stay tuned for that!
Hey folks - here’s a brannnnnnnd new song from my PRINTS series. It’s called “Old-Fashioned Girl” and features my pal and Big-Data-collaborator, Dan from the band Joywave. This song is actually how Dan and I first began collaborating, and what led to our forming Big Data.
Indie Shuffle was kind enough to premiere the track earlier this week - here’s the link.
Stream it up above, and while you’re at it, please "heart" the song on HypeMachine.
I’ll be dropping a video for it in the next few weeks, and will be properly releasing it via iTunes/Spotify/Rdio/etc… soon, so stay tuned!
Another quarter comes to a close, and which means it’s time for me to archive another quarter of my weekly Spotify mixtapes… OR IS ITTTTTT??????
You see, I’ve decided to switch things up and try to simplify my system a bit. From now on, rather than creating separate archived playlists every quarter, I’m just going to keep it to a total of two playlists: one archive playlist with EVERYTHING since I started this process in 2011, and one active playlist with all the most current stuff I’ve been listening to.
That way, you’ll only need to subscribe to two playlists, going forward… nice and easy.
Here they are:
Happy listening, y’all!
