Help Love Cop replace their stolen property!

Gnar Tapes sweethearts of Portland, Love Cop, have been trudging through the recent blizzard for their Laid 2 Rest in the Midwest tour. Today, while having a look around Sun Studios before their show in Memphis, Tn, some dillweed broke into their van, stealing thousands in band merch and personal effects. Most of us have had things taken, it sucks, and no one likes it. Help these boys out. We're all starving artists, musicians and creatives, so we've got to have each others' backs. Anything helps and click the link to their Go Fund Me page HERE.

CAPYAC Gets Down to Some Serious Cupcake 'n Funk Business in New Music Video

A musical act with a good sense of humor (that’s actually fuckin’ funny) that’s also straight killer when making more serious-minded shit is a hard thing to find. Count one more then in the ever-growing lists of reasons why Austin, and the world at large, is lucky to have CAPYAC, the city’s premier future funky outfit and the new group that made arguably the biggest impact on at least this writer’s 2015. With their new EP “Movement Swallows Us” still warm out of the oven, CAPYAC has elected not to rest on the merits of its already classic recent work and has released a new track called “Mama Never Told Me” that reveals that the funky-sexy duo also has a damn silly side to it.

“Mama Never Told Me” is basically about cupcakes, bright-ass colors, the funk, babies and some wildly-bedecked Austinites (including the band itself) gettin’ down to it all like it’s some serious fuk’n bizness. Producer Delwin Campbell is still riding the hothand here with another damn fine beat, this time anchored by a “Mama/Said” sample that is timed with sickness, and as ever Eric Peana is a funk vocalist master, this time with a tongue-in-cheek sexyfunk rap thing going on.

In the end though, the best way to get prepped for this excellent new addition to the catalog of Austin’s most exciting, most future-ready act is to read about it in their own inimitable words:

“Official release statement from Capyac:

Hello from Chez Capyac. Today we have the honor and privilege and honorable privilege to introduce to you our first food-related single. Why sing about food? Because singing and food share a mouth. When we were first approached by world famous director Meredith, we knew she had something. What did she have? Cupcakes. Magic. Studio magic. Ever heard of Hollywood?"

We have indeed, CAPYAC. We have indeed.

Attention All Science and/or Beat Heads: Magic Nanna's "Malachite" Music Video Has Dropped

Hey you- are you a sciencefreak? Do you think that space shit is rad, and the more explodey and whacked out it is (say, the more space-tentacles there are involved), the radder it is? Are you into geometry and angles and orbs and all that perfectly impossible math shit? Does the idea of a rocket-packed four-legged robot, zooming constellations and funky angles over a mind-flipping twinkled-out beat get your futuretech boner a’rarin’ to go?

Well maybe you should watch Austin producer Magic Nanna’s sexy-ass techporn futurebeat science freakout of a music video for his track “Malachite.” This is utterly on-point, heady stuff from a highly talented member of Austin’s world-class beatmusic cadre, showing Magic Nanna’s got his brains in weird, deep and far-out places and we’re all lucky the man’s got the musical chops to relate that shit to us through his beats. This could well be your new go-to get high and spaceout track, so get to it below.
