After the unexpected last tour and brake up of band LCD Soundsystem, James Murphy presents the first trailer for “Shut Up And Play The Hits”. The movie (documentary?), will possibly give LCD Soundsystem fans an explanation of why everything ended so unexpectedly quickly. The trailer hints at what might have been Murphy’s motivation to “prematurely” finish the band off with the phrase “If It’s a Funeral, Let’s Have The Best Funeral Ever”. Enjoy:
As you may have noticed, here at NVRMND we are pretty big fans of The Internet. They recently released a small preview trailer for their upcoming album Purple Naked Ladies. Enjoy:
Celebrated DJ/producer, crate digger, and debatably the best thing to come out of the Ventura County area, Madlib, has teamed up with none other than one of hip-hops soon to be legends, Freddie Gibbs, and announced the release of their collaborative album “MadGibbs“. This project has been kept under wraps for some time now, but it was announced last week at Madlib’s show in San Francisco that the album is scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2012.The attendants of that show were lucky enough to get the option of purchasing some early copies of a new Madlib x Gibbs EP (pics bellows), and the new tracks off the EP has been made available online. Listen to Gibbs just tear through two Madlib beat’s on their new tracks, “Thuggin'” and “Deep”:[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBAGc2VT47U]

Both songs are just such quality tracks.
The EP got dropped today, so run your ass down to your local record store and pick it up. Unfamiliar with either or both of these artist’s work? Hit the jump.
As previously announced here on the NVRMND blog, Hip Hop/Rap group The Roots pleases us with the second weekly video and song release anticipating their new project “Undun”. This time it’s “Tip The Scale”. Enjoy:[youtube.=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zrQAf8PT6k&feature=player_embedded#!]
Brooklyn-based Small Black announces the release of “Moon Killer” for this upcoming 11/11/11: a free mixtape characterized by dream-like beats, soft synths, and NY rap influence (at least that’s according to speculation and past releases from the band). Little Black’s style is a great mash of all genres, of past and present, and, eventually, the future of music. The band put emphasis on track “Two Rivers”, which was released today to tease the audience, featuring none other than Das Racist’s Heems, who donated a couple of freestyles and raps and is the only vocal feature of the album. Give it a listen below, and if you like it, click on that download link too. Enjoy:
After their two successful mixtapes, “Shut Up, Dude” and “Sit Down, Man“, rap/hip hip trio Das Racist is ready to release their first commercial album titled “Relax”. The album was supposed to be come out at the beginning of the year but, for some mysterious reasons, was pushed back to be released on September 13th. To keep us relaxed (yes, pun intended), however, they have their single “Michael Jackson” for sale on iTunes, and are now streaming their full length album on Spotify. You can buy Michael Jackson here (also first give it a listen below), and pre-order “Relax” here.
