Yeah Yeah Yeahs Working On New Music, Says Karen O
Things have been relatively quiet on the Yeah Yeah Yeah front following the release (and subsequent promotional push) of March 2009’s very good It’s Blitz. But that could change sometime soon according to frontwoman Karen O. She told U.K. newspaper The Sun that she and the rest of the band have been working on new material after taking some time off to focus on their respective side gigs. That’s about all she said about the new songs, though she did reveal that her psycho opera, Stop the Virgens, will likely be brought to London for some shows. Hmm, I know I can’t be alone in wishing that she and the rest of the YYYs would just focus on LP4. [NME]
Five Reasons You Need To Take Das Racist Seriously - Prefix Mag, September 13, 2011

With all of that in mind, we would be pretty hard-pressed to not have a strong interest in their proper debut,Relax, which drops Sept. 13. If nothing else, we’re excited to find out just how they can transition from the land of free projects to putting out a tangible product. That move has been (critically) deadly to some artists who have thrived in the land of mixtapes — Wale, B.o.B, etc… — but we’re confident Das Racist can handle it. And here are five reasons we think so.

20kUnderDC Review: Com Truise "In Decay"
New 20kUnderDC review up on Prefix. This time it’s the retrofuturist producer Com Truise:
The music Seth Haley creates under the moniker Com Truise can best be understood as a series of variations on the same theme. Not to undersell the producer’s talent, but hearing just one track—any track—is all you need to get a handle on what he’s trying to accomplish. In Decay— the new collection of unreleased and demo tracks out on Ghostly International— shows that Haley arrived at his cohesive synth-heavy sound early in his career and perfected it though endlessly reworking the same basic components over and over… [Read the rest over at Prefix]
