Shit Robot – “Losing My Patience”

Stumbled upon DFA Records’ website today, and realized Shit Robot (Marcus Lambkin) just released an amazing stop motion video to his track, “Losing My Patience” from the new album, From Cradle to the Rave. This video directed by, Fergal Brennan, seriously brings you back to good old VH1. So detailed, can tell how much work was put into it. The vocals might sound familiar because they belong to Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip.

Check out more from Shit Robot at his website

Of course, also check out the remix by Hot Chip http://soundcloud.com/dfa-records/shit-robot-losing-my

and work by Fergal http://www.mynameisfergal.com/

Our House Records Presents: ELECTR!C

Well, the nice guys over at Our House Records decided to throw another show, and it appears that they’re trying to set a trend for booking quality artists. Their last show, Day One, was dominated by heavy hitters Fukkk Offf and Le Castle Vania. This time it looks like they went with the exceptional musical stylings of Felix Cartal.

Listing Info:
330 Ritch
360 Ritch Street, San Francisco, CA (SF’s SOMA District)
April 30th
9PM-2AM // 18+ (good news for all you youngin’s)
Pick up tickets HERE (They’re cheap!)

Previews of the artists:

Dynamics: I’ve seen them once as a colab with Realboy and another time by themselves, and I have to say that they don’t disappoint. Their interests are not locked to a single genre, so their live performances are packed with variety, as opposed to the five hour wobble sessions that I’m sure most of you are used to; it keeps the night interesting. Check them out on SoundCloud and Facebook.

Realboy:  Pretty much everyone at NVRMND loves Realboy. A few of us have had the pleasure of seeing them grow as artists, and it’s safe to say that they are well on their way to becoming masterful DJs. They’ve been hinting for the last couple of weeks that this show is a funky one, so those of you who will be in attendance should expect high levels of groove to hit your ears. If you haven’t already listened/downloaded it, Realboy made a fantastic mix for us a while back, which is still available HERE. Haven’t heard their music? Here’s of their hits, Welcome to Hell:

Like them on Facebook and follow them on SoundCloud.

Felix Cartal: Beloved member of Dim Mak Records and true master of electronic music, Felix Cartal is a DJ that you can’t afford to miss. Know for his versatility and intense distortion, Mr. Cartal is living proof that Canada knows how to make quality DJs. Check out one of his more recent tracks, titled “World Class Driver”: 

He’s got a blog where you can read all of the weird thoughts he thinks and documents, which can be found HERE. Plus his Facebook.

Now if that didn’t sound good enough already, part of the NVRMND team will be there showing our support. We’ll be baring gifts for those of you in the front rows, so be sure to push your way forward and keep your hands up.

See you there,

NVRMND Picture of The Week

Happy Easter NVRMNDers


Typoe Presents: “Confetti Death”

Miami-based graffiti artist, Typoe, recently presented his latest piece of art titled “Confetti Death”. The piece was one of the most iconic ones down at the Art Basel in Miami this year, and, at least is my opinion, is probably one of the most innovative ones that we’ve seen lately coming from a modern street artist. It’s pretty incredible to see how street and urban art is slowly but surely shifting to the more sophisticated world of in-gallery artwork. The gallery world is in fact not only designated to the more “privileged” pioneers street artists such as Banksy, Shepard Fairey, and KAWS, but is now available and open on a much larger scale to support local graffiti artists. Anyway, enjoy the pictures, and to see more from Typoe (by the way, pretty cool concept on the name uh?) visit his Flikr here.

Thurnis Haley Presents: Tyler, The Creator’s “Goblin” Promo Video

Tyler, The Creator‘s one of many alter egos, Thurnis Haley, talks about himself and his great passion for golfing in a promo video for Tyler’s upcoming album, Goblin. Thurnis is fifty years old and.. yeah, he “eats golf, sleeps golf”. The promo video, for as short as it is, is pretty humorous, well produced, and has that kind of Adult Swim Tim n Eric sort of feel. The short commercial came out yesterday, but in case you haven’t seen it, get prepared to hit the replay button plenty of times for Thurnis’ hysterical laugh. Props to the subliminal messages in the video too. Goblin comes out May 5th, but you can already pre-order a copy on both iTunes and Amazon. Enjoy:
